What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working two part time jobs, part-time unschooling my 11-yr-old daughter, researching obscure things that fascinate me, hanging out.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm good at proofreading and editing--but I'm a descriptivist, not a prescriptivist, when it comes to grammar.

I love to learn, and have recently realized that research is possibly my true calling.

I try to think "outside the box" to use a cliche where I should be able to think of a better way to say it.

Seeing situations from many points of view.

Thanks to my permaculture training, I see possibilities instead of obstacles. Re-imagining life.

And, not spending much money. I'd rather have time than money.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Aside from obvious physical traits... I don't talk much. I've been told I have "a calming effect."
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
what, only one blank for four categories?!

Non-fiction: Tao Te Ching, Permaculture: A Designer's Manual by Bill Mollison, David Holmgren's Permaculture book, TAZ and others by Hakim Bey, a few by Ken Wilber, Robert Anton Wilson.

Fiction: VALIS and others by Philip K. Dick, Ishmael and others by Daniel Quinn. Since I was a child I've been a fan of Daniel Pinkwater.

Calvin and Hobbes

movies: Brazil, Buckaroo Banzai, Donnie Darko, Monty Python, Mystery Men, Star Wars episodes IV-VI, The Princess Bride.

music: I stopped listening to the radio years ago, except for select shows on WQNA 88.3. Otherwise, I'm into: Cheb i Sabbah, Bonobo, Dead Can Dance, Radiohead, Portishead, dub, Beatles, Shpongle, Buena Vista Social Club, early Beck, the Orb. Recently a friend introduced me to some good drum-n-bass, especially Big Bud. My favorite CD of all time is Passion: Music for the Last Temptation of Christ by Peter Gabriel. It's deeply imprinted on me.

food: I'll eat just about anything I'm presented with, as long as it's really food, and not something too weird like live octopus tentacles. I have a couple favorite restaurants here in Springfield. As far as ethnic, I've never tried anything I didn't like. If pressed, I'll say my favorite food is pizza. Also, I like strong flavors: garlic, dark chocolate, strong dark-roasted coffee. Fermented foods like sauerkraut, kefir, kim chee, kombucha, and more, are yummy and nutrition-enhanced.

TV: I haven't had one in about ten years. But I must admit, one show has worked its way into my heart: Phineas and Ferb. Someone got me through the first 3 seasons of LOST. And more recently I've been enjoying the good, dumb fun of Trailer Park Boys.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
bike, library, notebook, music, friends, downtime.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
permaculture, sustainability; just how messed up is America/industrial civilization, and what do we do with these ridiculous circumstances we find ourselves in? Fnord. And how to make a buck, just to eat and pay the rent, without suffocating my soul. How to transform the city into a garden.

Paradise apocalypse--unpacking meanings from that phrase has been fun.

Psychology; spirituality; religion; altered states of consciousness. God/Spirit/the Divine and the pure awareness at the heart of each of us.

Chaos. Wabi-sabi (not to be confused with wasabi). The Tao.

OK, I just spend a lot of time thinking.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
cranking up the dub show on the radio, chillaxin', hanging out at home.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Sometimes I just eat a spoonful of mayonnaise. It has to be REAL mayonnaise, though--Miracle WhipTM just isn't the same.
