My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
There's a word for the effect of an old joke or gag that becomes funny again when referenced under new circumstances. I can't remember the word or where I read about this concept, but I do remember that there's a shorthand category of humor labelled "on the roof" after this old joke:

A guy has his brother watch his cat while he's on vacation. First day out, he calls his brother...

"How's my cat?"

"Sorry, Bill, the cat's dead."

"Dammit, don't tell me that! Now my vacation's ruined!"

"Well, what was I supposed to say?"

"Ease me into it! Tell me that the cat's gone up on the roof, and
you can't get it down. Next time I call, tell me the cat's still on the roof, and it won't come down. Then, when I call the last time, tell me the cat died, so it's not a shock."

"Fine, fine. Sorry."

"Okay. So, how's Mom?"

"Mom's up on the roof and she won't come down."


Well-mannered and considerate, you can bring him anywhere and your mother will like him.

Addicted to Business Insider.

A reliably Democratic voter.

He's had brushes with death in overambitious wilderness adventures. No more of that.

He's affectionate, analytical and expressive. He's definitely not an austere, stiff-upper-lip type. If he's got a problem with something, you're gonna hear about it. And if he loves something, you're gonna hear about that, too.

He's been playing guitar since age 10 and remains an obsessive listener of rock, blues, jazz and classical music. He can also play drums, bass and piano, though he mostly just plays guitar these days.

He's a film buff and one of his favorite activities has been serving as an indie film festival juror here in the city.

He tends to be gregarious and doesn't take himself too seriously.

He is analytical and creative. Passionate and pragmatic. Open-minded and sentimental.

He loves to stay abreast of cosmology.

He was born and raised in S. FL and goes back there several times a year. It's lovely in the Winter.

The word "textiles" sounds absolutely nothing like what it means. Every time someone uses that word I have to look it up in my brain and substitute the definition for the word. (I wouldn't say that I think about this "A LOT.")

People I care about. Politics. Weekend plans. Cosmology. Economics. Philosophy. Music. Problems that I need to solve. Funny memories. "Deep Thoughts."
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
