First Crush: JT Snow, the switching-hitting, leftie first baseman for the California Angels. He won the Golden Glove twice. I wrote him love letters in the third grade. I was a huge baseball nerd. Read the stats everyday.
Go-To Celebrity Crush: Ira Glass. I love podcasts and his voice soothes my anxiety. I listen to him to fall asleep every night. I met him once and my naturally clammy hands also turned warm and pink, like my cheeks.
Most Embarrassing Celebrity Crush: Used to be this...but i don't date alphas anymore.
Ideal Date Place in Brooklyn: Brooklyn Crab in Red Hook then a walk along the water followed by a nightcap and some bluegrass at the Jalopy. Red Hook is one of the darkest places in NYC, so you can sit on the edge of the pier with some seafood and white wine in your belly, and stargaze and play a game where you guess the constellations then check the answers with the iPhone app "Skyview"
