Well, okay. Sure…
Nickname: “Jeopardy” (because I was on it, once)
Birthday: January 1987 (yes, I’m “tumblr old”)
Time Zone: Pacific
Average hours of sleep I get each night: 6-7, depending how many times I hit snooze (I hate my job, so it’s usually about 20 times…)
The last thing I Googled was: “Los Angeles Plays Itself”
My most used phrase(s): the name of my employer, followed by “may I ask who’s calling?” (sigh)
First word that comes to mind: perspicacious
What I last said to a family member: “See you at Christmas.”
One place that makes me happy: the last turn on the landing pattern into Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport, when the plane comes around and the Minneapolis skyline slides into view. Bonus points for night flights, when it’s all lit up.
How I sleep: Using every available inch of the mattress. Woe betide anyone who ever tries to share a bed with me. #limbsakimbo
Favorite beverage: Dark & Stormy
The last movie I watched in the cinema: Thor: The Dark World. Look, movies are expensive in Los Angeles, okay?
Three things I can’t live without: dairy, music, my library card(s)
Something I plan on learning: the Depression-era history of the Pinkerton Detective Agency (research for a tv pilot script).
A piece of advice for all my followers: Find someone more interesting to follow. But also, never put yourself last. Obviously, be kind to others, but also give yourself the love and respect you deserve (and accept no less from anybody else).
You all have to listen to this: Welcome to Night Vale. Just trust me.
My blog(s): at the moment, just missristee.tumblr.com (which barely counts)

favorite band: not a band, but an artist — Jeremy Messersmith
favorite actor: I keep watching shitty Chris Pine vehicles because hope springs eternal, so him, I guess?
favorite actress: we’ll say Anna Kendrick at the moment, since she’s who I had in mind for the lead (a magician/possible murderer!) in the last pilot script I wrote.
dream job: TV writer
fears: basically everything.
languages: English, decent French, minimal Spanish, literally 3 phrases in Cantonese, and I once tried to learn Huttese, aka the language of Jabba the Hutt and various denizens of Tatooine. It didn’t really take.
