Blog-tag: 5 thing you don’t know about me

Rich Skrenta blog-tagged me, so here are five things you may not know about me:
1. I edited a small-press magazine for three years just at the end of college. Hand Book got all sorts of grants that allowed myself and my co-editor, Rochelle Ratner, to publish 3 issues before we realized that distributing the thing was going to swamp us. However, I developed a passion for ‘zines that played right into the obsession with the Net I’d develop 12 years later.
2. Doing laundry is one of my small pleasures. The idea that in a couple of hours I can take a wrinkled, smelly heap of cloth and turn it into warm, neatly folded clothes and sheets thrills me every time. And no, don’t ask me to do yours.
3. I have a 100-lb. American bulldog named Winston and a black cat named Panther. Winston follows me from room to room when he’s not asleep. Until a few weeks ago–although he’s lived with me for 10 years–Panther didn’t really like me. Now he’s following me from room to room as well.
4. I love trashy sci-fi, fantasy and horror movies. When it comes to flicks like Vlad the Impaler and An American Haunting, Netflix is my connection. I also love jazz, opera, fado and flamenco–and Tiimbaland ( Sexyback).
5. I started working when I was 17. My jobs included camp counselor, artist’s model, babysitter, book binder, waitress, writing teacher, and library clerk. My favorite college job was writing teacher–I taught poetry and journalism to high school students at Buck’s Rock Camp.
