Agnosticism and it’s important

My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I order wine in dive bars in a beer town. I've grown to like beer.

I value sarcasm as well as empathy. More of a Dorothy than a Blanche.

I'm pretty awkward. Also, often contrarian. I can be quiet at times, but truly believe silence in life is important.

I am uncomfortable with so many "I" statements.


Likes: the serial comma. binder clips. 3-legged dogs. dogs of all kinds. cats. cats of all kinds.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am a work in progress. I hope I grow every day. Some days, I think I do.

I have sold cheese for a living, worked on a farm in Jersey for about 15 years (on and off), was once "in publishing" (whatever that means), but I suppose if this was a resume, I'd be forced to admit I recently earned an MFA in poetry. I now work at CSU and it's pretty great. Some days I watch "Golden Girls" and/or "Roseanne" reruns at the gym. This is also pretty great.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
For whatever reason, this question makes me think more of what I'm not good at. Namely: cooking, organization, linear thought processes, fixing things.

That said, I'm pretty good at skiing (I grew up racing in upstate NY, so I can do ice), I have a love/hate relationship with running but I've become pretty decent at running 13.1 contiguous miles, and I can easily spend hours in a bookstore. I'm not sure if any of these qualify as skills. I'm ok with that. I'm also exceptionally skilled at choosing the longest checkout line at the supermarket. I've become much better recently at biking with a coffee mug in one hand with minimal spillage.

Oh! And puzzles! Like, good old-fashioned jigsaw puzzles.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Here's the thing - I love talking about things I love, but I honestly don't think it's all that important that those in my life love all the things I love. That would be boring, right? Anyway. The lists:

Books: The Dog Stars, The People of Paper, The Children's Hospital, City of Thieves, Kent Haruf fiction, some poetryish things like Bluets, That This, Hotel Lobby at the End of the World, Don't Let Me Be Lonely, Sir, Young Tambling

Music [caveat: this list is pretty old, probably dating back before my ipod broke about 3 years ago]: Andrew Bird, Magnetic Fields, Anne Murray (yes), Elvis Perkins & Deerland, Beirut, George Strait, Gillian Welch, Lykke Li, Lake Street Dive, Phosphorescent. I have an affinity for solid gold hits of the 70s. And I recently discovered a classic country station on the am dial (yes, if it's am radio, it's on the dial), and it's changed my life.

Top 4 Pandora stations as of late: Dolly Parton, Motown, Kenny Rogers, Neko Case. So. There's that.

I dislike jam bands. Secret confession: I've been to a Phish show.

TV [I hope we're past the age of "I don't watch tv because I'm ideologically against it." There is some great stuff out there. And sometimes passive entertainment is necessary.]: New Girl, Community, Parks and Rec, Brooklyn 99, South Park, Broad City, Pete and Pete, Happyish, You're the Worst

Recently: Transparent's pretty much amazing. Also, it reminded me of this song and how much I love narrative 70's music.

Radio: Wait, Wait... Radiolab

Food: Yes, please. All kinds. Especially food I don't cook myself (which is to say cooking is not one of my special skills).

Movies: Next Stop Wonderland, The Station Agent, The Big Lebowski, O Brother Where Art Thou, The Future, Beasts of the Southern Wild

I've watched this about 18 times and I don't even have a dog, let alone an elder dog, but I do have a dog I borrow (frequently) whose people tell me I'm his favorite living thing (true story).
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
(Or, things that I'm obsessed with at the moment with a cross-section of things that make me happy.)

running sneakers, outdoor time, good/strange/challenging books, coffeeeeeeee, avocados, friends/family
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
glaciers. narwhals.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
***Please do not look at my profile (well, I guess you're already here) or message me if you are barely legal. I do not exist to satisfy your demeaning fantasies.**** have more to say than "what's up." seriously. more than "what's up," "whats up," "hey," "hello," or any variance of not-really-a-conversaton.

I'm not looking for a mirror image of myself. Teach me something. I like learning. Honesty and intelligence go a long way with me.
