Amelia

From: San Francisco Bay Area

Fave musicians: Hmmm, I'm more of an individual songs gal (though definitely not a remember-their-names gal). But I grew up on The Beatles (thanks, Dad), and give me some Tom Waits, Antonio Carlos Jobim, T. Rex, Billie Holiday, Lucio Battisti, or Nino Rota anytime. Also, I love me my White Stripes (sniff, sniff)!

About me: Sun sign: Sagittarius. Moon sign: Aquarius. I was raised by Cary Grant and Jimmy Stewart. Singing is not my strong suit. Italy is my second home, California my first. Someday: ballroom dancer.

I like: Checking off my to-do list, clouds, turkeys, and, of course, coziness.

I dislike: Not having a trip in the works.

Why I went veg: While eating at Garden Fresh in Mountain View (California), I picked up a PETA informational leaflet, and a vegan was born.

Fave Foods: I'll keep it to my go-to basics: dried fruit, kale chips, and avocado (hey, you can add it to practically anything, and yes, I'm from California).

Little known facts about me: Let's see ... I have a huge Archie Comics collection, I used to play baseball (and my mom is happy to tell you how I wasn't very good at it), I have broken my left pinky toe like a million and two times, I have a birthmark in the shape of a kiss (and nope, not telling where)!
