What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Apparently, starting this profile. Also, just moved to Portland. Keep reading for more, or send me a message...
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Reading, kissing, constructing blanket forts, making curry and pico de gallo (not usually at the same time), knowing the words to songs (unfortunately this includes songs I really despise), drinking whiskey, seeing the best in most people and situations... I can also make a pretty spot on pig noise. Yes, I am sort of proud of this useless talent. And I have excellent penmanship. Like, truly stellar.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Eyes. A very cliche response, but when they are as big as mine are, you hear about them a lot. I'll work on coming up with something more clever.

Star Trek (OST and TNG), Misfits, Freaks and Geeks, Cosmos, Twin Peaks, Firefly, Adventure Time, Parks and Rec., Arrested Development, Archer, Bored to Death, probably some other stuff I'm forgetting... I'm kind of digging that new show Hannibal so far.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Smell - Campfires, sawdust, books (the 1965 copy of A Moveable Feast is my favorite smelling book that I own), fresh rosemary and lavender, coffee. Petrichor. My mom's perfume.

Touch - Kisses, sex, the obvious. Clean sheets/bare legs combo. Getting my hands dirty... paint, pumpkin guts, motor oil, mud...

Sound - Train horns, tent zippers, real belly laughs, white noise to sleep at night, thunderstorms. Music, obviously. Sing-a-longs with friends.

Sight - I think sometimes I make too much eye contact with strangers around me and it makes them uncomfortable. The art of Egon Schiele, Dustin Nguyen, Duane Michals, Gustav Klimt, Danny Lyon, Gian Lorenzo Bernini, Edward Gorey, Jacques Henri Lartigue, Max Ernst... I'm suddenly a little disappointed with myself that there are no women on this list. It is by no means comprehensive, but I am tired now and just want to be done with this.

Taste - Coffee, fresh nectarines from the fruit stand. Salt... skin, tears, the ocean. Tequila with oranges and cinnamon. I've developed a real thing for kale and brussels sprouts lately. Dark chocolate with sea salt. Habaneros and wasabi, I like things that burn.

Ummmm... I really want a dog to wrestle and cuddle with, maybe that for number six. Or a body of water to spend time in/on. Forts, maps, road trips, mason jars full of whiskey, dusty cowboy boots, red lipstick, handwritten letters, the moon, my record player, my typewriters, a porch and a cold beer in summertime, wool socks and giant quilts when it's cold, swing sets, ellipses...

Thinking about changing this to "Hendrick’s gin; tonic; lime; ice cubes; a tumbler; my typewriter." Just because that McSweeney's thing on Raymond Carver starting an okcupid profile was pretty great. Message me if you know about that.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The Voyager space probe Golden Records.
How much I really need to get some kind of book published someday.
Double entendres.
Pheromones and the science behind attraction and love.
Why it is that I am still incapable of whistling.
Gender identities, race, privilege, intersectional feminism, sexual politics, patriarchy, anthropology, neuroscience, travel, permaculture, intentional communities, the ocean, the forest, what book to read next, what record to buy next, what recipe to try next, what place to go camping next, pathology, epidemiology, cats.... pretty much just the normal stuff people think about.
Sex. Again, another pretty typical response, but oh so true.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I really just want Morgan Freeman to read me bedtime stories.

I have fairly irrational fears of blowing up balloons,
popping champagne corks, and dark bathrooms.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If you lost a cat somewhere around N. Haight and Skidmore. S/he seems to have adopted me and won't leave, but is wearing a collar so I am sure s/he belongs to someone.

Also, I am considering (maybe?) moving out of the PNW next year and have no idea where I would like to go. So if you live in an awesome city and you want to tell me all about why it is so awesome and why I should move there.

Oh, and all kinds of other reasons too, but I'm sure you can figure those out by reading my profile. It is not a requirement that you have a lost cat or live somewhere outside of Portland.

(If you love hockey and regularly watch the games and want someone to do that with/don't mind if I join you and some other folks, please message me. I have no one in this city so far to get excited about hockey with. Especially if you're into the Pens or the 'Hawks. If forced to choose, like when they play each other so very occasionally, I root for the Pens. But I love them both. And I have a bit of a thing for the Stars and the Habs. I don't know, I just reeeeeally love hockey, so much. Bruins and Flyers fans need not apply.)

Oooooo, if you want to go skydiving for a first date! Why the hell not, right? Let's make that happen.
