My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I think of myself as a flâneur (a fancy 19th century French history term for a guy who loiters around cafés and walks the citya loafer). But, I'm also a country rube from a part of California that features prominently in the Grapes of Wrath. And, even though I've broadened my horizons, I'm still most comfortable with the stuff I was into growing up.

I use CouchSurfing (got ruined the past few years) and foursquare (also ruined). I'm dilettantish in pursuing my interests, which are too numerous. I'm a complete hypocrite, but I feel bad about it. I actually did graduate from Space Camp and even there I was one of the weird/ostracized kids.

I used to have an HO scale train layout.

And I may want to move back to the west coast sometime in the future, especially San Francisco, Seattle, or Portland.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Trying to get the good ending in Bust-a-Move.

Working a day job so I can pay for my comfort and entertainment. Public interest lawyer. Like Charlie, I specialize in bird law.

Learning about bikes, urban planning, trains, advocacy, gardens, ceramics, whiskey, languages.

Occasionally distance running when I'm not too lazy.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
ain't good at pretty talkin', that's for damned sure

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Why am I such an idiot?

Are archaeopteryx fossils still cool since finding feathered raptor fossils?

Where can I get the music they play at Mamoun's Falafel?

and reddit, along with its impact on how effectively my time is spent
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Doing this with you (you would probably be the Butt-head to my Beavis)

To be honest, I don't really go out much when I don't have something specific and exciting to go to.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Sometimes a crooner version of "Get Low" by Lil' Jon & The East Side Boyz randomly pops into my head. Like, imagine it sung by Dean Martin to the tune of "Sixteen Tons." As far as I know, no such song exists.

Yakety Sax (the Benny Hill theme) and fast motion makes everything funny.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
(1) You want to talk about or play video games together.

And you like ones with quality story and art and recognize that the medium is capable of creating the ultimate Gesamtkunstwerk,* but you can also enjoy some low brow stuff or plain old games for game's sake.

*(okay, maybe that's a bit of an exaggeration)

Especially message me for this reason. It's not my only interest, but it's my favorite one and the hardest to find in others now : /

(2) You want company for this other stuff:
(a) board games like CharDee MacDennis, Tongo, Settlers of Catan, Cranium, Munchkin, Nuclear War, Dominion, Fluxx, Risk;
(b) going to old-timey restaurants , bars, etc.;
(c) a pilgrimage to a Frank Lloyd Wright building;
(d) finding kitsch things, like in this map I made for Los Angeles; or

(3) You're a ginger. Not that you shouldn't if you aren't, but red/orange hair is just cool. It's almost as cool as short haircuts.

(4) You're into kink/bdsm (FetLife profile?) and/or think of yourself as at least somewhat queer.

Really though, sex preferences, polyamory, and most other things are all secondary to just finding someone with whom I can watch shows, talk about games, and cuddle. Everything else is relatively unimportant.
