My self-summary
I talk in silly voices, make inscrutable references, and think about the history of imperialism. I'm not allowed to use the Oxford comma in my day job and it's excruciatingly frustrating.

I like secrets, legend, and forgotten history.

This is the person with the best name in the world:,_Marquis_de_Grouchy
What I’m doing with my life
I write about wine and cocktails for a trade magazine. I write about video games for an Internet. I write about myth, travel, the Arctic, and detectives for myself. These things are all less different than they seem.

I am working on a short story collection that I like a lot and a long poem that I keep changing my mind about, but enjoy writing for its own sake. I come up with strange screenplay ideas and don't write them, mostly on purpose. Sometimes I do stand up but only when I'm invisible. I wear white more often than I should but not as often as I want to.
I’m really good at
Talking about the deeply underrated Byzantine Empire.
Complaining about the nefarious House of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha
Sitting on the floor instead of in a chair, for no reason at all
Making cocktails
Drinking and defending rosé
Listening to songs I really like ten times a day (does this count as a skill?)
The first things people usually notice about me
The beard, or its absence, both of which are routine.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Lord of the Rings, The Silmarillion, A Game of Thrones. Eco, Borges, Wodehouse. 19th century adventure novels. 20th century classic noir. Non-fiction about exploration, the Arctic, Siberia, and imperialism. Non-fiction about 19th century business tycoons (this is a bad habit).

Lawrence of Arabia, The Man Who Would Be King, Excalibur, The Sword in the Stone, Jurassic Park.

Game of Thrones, Twin Peaks, Arrested Development (incl. season 4), Seinfeld, South Park (I used to work for Comedy Central, cut me some slack), Daria (hmm).

Favorite music: I am bad at discovering new music. Your help is appreciated. I'm in a low music phase right now. Interpret that how you will.

I just recently learned that Mick Jagger is not in Aerosmith and Keith Richards is not in the Yankees. I am really not kidding.

Favorite food: Salsa verde and cilantro. Thai, Vietnamese, Indian. Why is it so hard to get good Mexican in New York?
The six things I could never do without
Fancy cocktails
Tomatillo salsa
An all-white outfit
Traveling to cold places
Wordplay, the stupider the better
The silly names of NYC neighborhoods... Dutch Kills? Sheepshead Bay? Vinegar Hill? South Park Slope?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The Fall of Constantinople
The phrase "keep it seacrest, keep it safe"

Whether I would rather go to Svalbard, Alaska, Greenland, Kamchatka, Iceland, Grytviken, or just cut to the chase and go to Antarctica.
On a typical Friday night I am
Making fancy cocktails or pouring wine for friends at my apartment.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't know how to ride a bicycle - and I don't really feel want to learn how.

I'm debating whether this is too private to admit so freely. Hmm.
