Jack David would have been my daughter’s name had she been a boy. My son would have been Kenzie Elisabeth if he had been a girl.

I’m allergic to cats, sagebrush, juniper, cottonwood, agave, radishes, walnuts, and also apparently daikon (which makes total sense due to it being a kind of radish).

New Girl, Modern Family, and Community are three of my favorite shows from the here and now.

My favorite movie of all time is A League of Their Own…”There’s no crying in baseball!”
Guilty TV pleasures: Project Runway, Top Chef, Glee, Dancing With the Stars, and So You Think You Can Dance.
Favorite poets: Robert Frost and Margaret Atwood.
