Brittany

What I Do, Job-wise: Write. Edit.

What I Do, Fun-wise: I eat marzipan, avocados, and potatoes in any form. I like new wave and dance-punk, junk and antique stores, console arcade games, and road trips in temperate climates. I drive an old car and a new-ish bicycle. I take photos with vintage film cameras. I’ve been known to plane spot.

My Motto: Stop and talk to people.

My Anti-Motto: Everything in moderation.

The First Movie Star I Ever Had A Crush On: Can we go small screen? If so, "Wonder Years"-era Fred Savage.

My “celebs to make out with” list: OMG everyone: Jake Gyllenhaal, Taye Diggs, Aaron Eckhart, Mark Ruffalo, Mark Wahlberg, and (duh, let’s all get in line) Ryan Gosling. I can’t even begin to name musicians but always Britt Daniel and Nic Offer. Would also like to hold hands with Catherine Keener, Cillian Murphy, Paprika Steen, Gordon Ramsey, Michelle Williams, Jen Aniston, and Miranda July.  

The Most Played Song On My iTunes: “Gypsy” by Fleetwood Mac
 

Last Book I Read Without Skimming Any Parts: Melissa Holbrook Pierson’s The Place You Love Is Gone and Meghan Daum’s Life Would Be Perfect If I Lived In That House. Books about/related to location/home are my shit.

My Most Worn Item of Clothing: Triumph bras, Simple sneakers and boots, Krambamboline flats, cheapo generic skinny jeans, 20-plus-year-old secondhand t-shirts (grey Sturgis ’86 is the current fave) 

Beauty Products That I Hoard: Tarte eyeliner, MOP hair products, scissor handle tweezers, Origins travel sizes and samples, L’Occitane soaps from hotels, individually wrapped cotton pads and swabs (also from hotels)


I Smell Like: Men’s deodorant and citrus
