GDMS: The Elspeth Writes a Giant Novel Edition
Hi, friends! Foods you like, despise, can't eat
(allergies, etc.) I have the worst salty-sweet tooth. I love rich. I love
vaguely bitter. (THAT EXPLAINS SO MUCH). I love acid. I love earthy. I'm
allergic to iodine, but that basically only matters if I'm consuming massive
amounts of seafood (unlikely to come in a mailed package, I think?) or getting
prepped for surgery. I'm not a huge fan of nuts, and I am actually really bad
about eating fancy food treats. Punsir teases me that I save my Cadbury eggs
until they're going to hatch. Coffee vs. tea? I drink so much tea that I should
probably see the dentist more often. I love black teas, white teas and flavored
teas. I think green tea tastes like icky, icky grossness in a cup, but chais are
my favorite. I'm not the biggest anise fan, so I try to find teas without anise
in them, and hibiscus gives me headaches, but otherwise, I am an equal
opportunity tea lover. Where do you live? (I'm thinking climate, big city/small
town, etc.) We just moved to Philadelphia after several years in the DC area.
Our apartment is right on the edge of young, hip party area, but we're still
brick sidewalks and old growth trees. I love living somewhere with lots of
opportunities to run, window shop and eat. There's a ton of great restaurants in
our neighborhood, and we're just starting to discover them. While Punsir and I
have been doing Weight Watchers (HELL YES DOWN THIRTEEN POUNDS), and that has
stalled our foodie explorations, I think we're going to have a great time
exploring the area. I grew up not far from Philly- about 90 minutes- so it's
kind of fun to explore the city in a totally new way. The only down side is that
I work about 75 minutes from Philly, via car. I spend a lot of time in the car.
BOOOOO. Favorite yarns / fabrics? I just, oh, god, I have such a yarn problem. I
love Sundara. I love MadTosh. I love Fiberphile. I knit A LOT, and I love luxe
fibers with rich handpaints. I don't love variegated, but a tonal yarn totally
has my number. I also love sturdy wools: workhorses like Ella Rae and Cascade
for giant sweater production, and I love unexpected details, like 5% of camel.
I'm big into the feel and hand of yarns, so I'm always looking for a new
experience. Fabric is harder. I buy fabric like a champ. A champ with a broken
sewing machine. I love charm packs and jelly rolls in vintage style prints.
Crafty pursuits - knit, crochet, spin, sew, quilt, make friendship bracelets,
any of these or others? I love art: the Art Deco period, Art-Nouveau, the Arts
and Crafts movement, Anglo-Japanese (like Whistler, Singer Sargent, etc.) and
saturated, stylized colors. Klimt, and the like: they move me so. I love to cook
and I'm fine with attempting something exotic and complicated, even if it
spectacularly fails. I love to work with my hands.
Hobbies/pursuits/proclivities/passions (other than the aforementioned crafty
ones, obvs) Books, in all forms. Movies. Clothes. Food. Wine. Flowers. Jewelry.
Living far, far beyond my means. (kidding about that last one) What do you do in
life? (job, career, school, family, etc.) I'm an exhibits curator at a museum.
My job is to design and put together the shows the museum displays. Right now, I
have a show opening in three weeks, so I'm super busy. I love that my job not
just encourages but requires me to learn as much as I can, about anything I can.
It's a really creative, mindbending kind of work: I'm just as likely to be knee
deep in a fish tank as I am inside a dinosaur skeleton, or in an archive
repairing a print so I can display it as I am to be working with a band saw to
build a case. I really, really, really love my job. What makes you happy? My
sweet, sweet Punsir. My friends. I make no distinction between the online and
the inperson. Hot tea. Red wine. Stinky cheese. High heels. NPR. The smell of
the air after it rains. Clean laundry. Heavy blankets. Antiques. Random
favorites -- colors, flavors, scents, books, movies, TV, magazines, genres, time
of day, motifs (foxes, bees, squirrels, owls, beavers, mushrooms, bats) etc. My
favorite color is blue: sapphire, rich, so saturated it's almost grayblack. I
love heavy jewel tones; if the color would belong in a byzantine mosiac, I'm
going to love it. I wear lots of different perfumes: some floral, some oriental,
some lighter and sweeter. My favorite perfume is the same as the one my mother
wore as twenty years ago: a classic never dies! I love TV: sharply crafted
procedurals like The Wire or complex dramas like Breaking Bad are my favorites.
I also love 30 Rock, Masterpiece Theater, Antiques Roadshow and documentaries. I
am a huge, huge dork. If there's a historical costume, I will watch it. My
favorite times of day are the quiet ones. I love early morning and afternoon.
The warmth after a hot bath, the calmness of a big cup of tea and my knitting. I
don't have particularly favorite motifs, b
I have my knitting machine!
