What I’m doing with my life
I work in a small factory in Berkeley. I also work at maintaining the illusion of normalcy, but that's unpaid. "What I'm doing with my life" : "Where I work" in 'merican, right? If not, my interior life is mostly reading and writing.
I’m really good at
Cooking, eating, talking about what I'm going to and/or hope to eat, writing, proofreading, the blarney, working with autists, hating on this question.

I'm pretty tall. And I like to talk. I really, really like to talk. This latter, more than anything else I've figured, divides the people who enjoy my company from those that don't.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: The Moviegoer, Tampa, 2666, MaddAddam, Chronic City, Lilith's Brood, Confederacy of Dunces, The Unbearable Lightness of Being, Hell's Angels, Pirsig, Women
Music: Dead Prez, That Dog, Kendrick Lamar, Trinidad James, Postal Service, Eliot Smith, Jenny Lewis, Blackstar, Bun B.
The six things I could never do without
My longest-standing possession is a chef's knife my sister gave me on our eighteenth birthday.

I really don't like objects much. I try to focus on the experience of riding the bike, since they all get stolen eventually.
I spend a lot of time thinking about

But a lot of my thought process are epistemological or ontological, so it's true as well as a bad joke.
Food, feminism, disability/mental health, baseball, novels, comics, economics, Oakland.
On a typical Friday night I am
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I've come to think this question means "what potential deal-breakers would you like to reveal, [which we have failed to reveal with our details sidebar]?" So: I'm autistic, what we used to call aspergers.
