My self-summary
Alright. I like summer food, the smell of sunscreen, and fixing up old bicycles. I like long drives, 4 AM meteor showers and the changing of the seasons. I don't like licorice, tangled wires, pens on bare desks, or shorts. I love reading, tea, and spaghetti, but not chocolate milk. I write fiction, I hike, I like to sing. Favorite animal: horseshoe crab, alternatively a mountain goat. At various times my dream jobs have been: Bike Shop Owner, News Radio Host, Backup Singer, Astronomer, Train Engineer.
What I’m doing with my life
I work indoors for a company primarily concerned with the outdoors. I'm writing a graphic novel with a friend of mine and a novel-novel in the meantime.
I’m really good at
That thing you half-heartedly mentioned a fleeting, casual interest in three months ago? You're getting it for Christmas.
The first things people usually notice about me
I drive with award-winning lethargy.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Music
The Decemberists, Emmy the Great, Sufjan Stevens, Regina Spektor, Neutral Milk Hotel, Ingrid Michaelson, If Bears Were Bees, Lucius, St. Vincent, Imogen Heap, Beulah, Hurray for the Riff-Raff, Kimbra, The Receiving End of Sirens, The Saw Doctors

Movies
Both highbrow and lowbrow. The Life Aquatic and Fast Five are equals as far as I'm concerned, so pegging a genre is a lost cause.

TV
Firefly, Mad Men, MASH, Bill Nye the Science Guy, Top Gear, Parks and Rec, Sherlock, The IT Crowd

Books
Don't expect to get your book back. I know you loaned it to me, but what I heard was, "Here, have this." (It works the other way, too. A book I've loaned is a book I've given away.)
The six things I could never do without
- bicycle(s)
- a book
- chicken, broccoli, ziti
- sunscreen
- the ocean
- public radio
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I do a lot of daydreaming and working things out in my head. When I step into a room I like to describe it to myself; the mood, the feeling, the lighting, etc.

I like being plugged in to current events and politics. I look forward to election time. The horse race, the strategizing, the news cycle; it's a holdover from school and I like the big circus of it all.

And space.
On a typical Friday night I am
During the summer, out for a bike ride 'til the sun goes down. As the days get shorter, the bar with friends. Then when it's frigid and dark at 4:00 PM, a book and tea time for tea.
