My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am a wizard and I am made of magic.

You know those guys that go to the gym and insist on dropping their dumbbells on the floor after every exercise as though they (the guys, not the dumbbells) were members of Satan's infernal menagerie and the dumbbells' handles were meticulously crafted from the bones of dead Popes and slathered in Mother Teresa's saliva? I am the diametrical opposite of those dudes; their dudely ways are anathema to me.

I've been known to climb a rock or two in my day. I was once a sprightly young lad with the strength of, uh, one man; in the twilight of my wasted youth I rattle bony fists at the heavens, seeking REDRESS for the grave injustices of age, all the while beating on, a boat against the current, borne back ceaselessly blah blah blah.

(Actually, I'm still a solid boulderer. Ha ha, jokes!)

My face looks about five years younger than it should*. Ladies with a preference for strategy over tactics, take note. *wink* (oh god what the hell are you even writing here) I'm not on that Dorian Gray trip, though, so you don't have to worry about my face suddenly taking on the appearance of hot wax dripped onto burnt leather if we go on a date. Though that would be a wicked party trick. No, we cannot "try it out."

* A fact that caused a modicum of awkwardness when I was 20. When people ask your boss why she's hiring 15-year-olds, that is a problem.

My voice is acrobatic -- I have some serious range. If I could sing worth a damn,** maybe that would come in handy. I can make some deliciously odd sounds, though, so I'll take solace in the knowledge that I'll probably make an especially spooky ghost (Can ghosts haunt other ghosts? This is a burning question. It burns with something that burns really bright. And hot).

**Addendum: Apparently, I have a respectable falsetto. I unleashed it one recent night (while inebriated), and a dear friend of mine looked at me, wide-eyed, as if she had never seen or heard me before. I'm not gonna lie, it was a wonderful experience.

This is my favorite joke:
"A woman walks into a bar and asks for a double entendre. The bartender gives it to her."

I like people who are strong but kind, who have a bit of an edge but aren't so caustic as to melt the flesh from a man's bones. More lemon juice, less battery acid. If you enjoy physical activity, that's a mark in your favor.

And now, a list of true facts:

-- I'm a sucker for redemption narratives.
-- I'm an autodidact.
-- That said, I know very little (well, in a relative sense).
-- I eat healthy meals . . . most of the time.
-- Quiet at first, talkative later.
-- I enjoy absurd humor.
-- I like kids, but I'm not sure I want any of my own.
-- Late Spring and early Fall make me happy.
-- I'd rather be hot than cold.
-- Showers are amazing. Baths are amazing. I do fancy my ablutions.
-- I learned to read when I was 2. I might have peaked early.
-- I hate escalators with every fiber of my being.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I currently work in marketing for a small publishing company. I do social media, email, copywriting, ad design, blogging. These days, my job mostly consists of designing and coding webpages. Formerly an editor for the same company.

I want to move to Colorado.

Otherwise, I don't know. And that's thrilling in some ways, because I want to do so many things that it's hard for me to decide. I want to write dystopian science-fiction novels and essays on music. I want to code beautiful websites. I want to draw silly animated pictures. I want to build a tiny house and tow it across the country. I want to quit my job and start a band. I want to help struggling kids learn to read, learn to do math, learn to think, learn to appreciate the world around them. I want to end every day knowing more than I did when I woke. And sometimes I just want to lay around.

What I am doing with my life is trying feverishly to hold onto those dreams while managing my responsibilities. I'm an adult. Wheeeeeeeeee!

So, yeah, um. I don't know what I'm doing with my life.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Writing fake menu items for upscale restaurants. Ask me about Food Innovations™ sometime.

Entertaining myself.

Self-deprecation.

Coming up with vocal harmonies for songs with only one vocalist (okay, I might not be THAT GREAT at this, but hey).

I can also do a mean one-handed cartwheel.

Bizarre Love Triangle is one of my favorite songs of all time.

Food
I'm not picky in the slightest. I love finding new foodstuffs with which to stuff my face. Take me to your favorite eatery?

Cereal atop ice cream is practically the most glorious combination of comestibles imaginable. If you've never tried it, get on that immediately. I suggest pairing Golden Grahams with Fudge Ripple. A delectable masterwork.

Apples. I will not turn down the chance to try a type of apple I've never tried before.

Also, I like food with plenty of spice and heat.

Board games
Settlers of Catan.
Wiz-War.

Video games
Dark Souls. Full stop.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
If I could never again have any of the following six items, I don't think I'd live a very happy life.

1. Black coffee
2. The internet
3. An electric guitar and amp
4. Books of all genres
5. Exercise (I get cranky in the absence of regular exercise)
6. A bit of time alone now and again
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
. . . what I need to do to become a better person. How can I be happier and healthier?

Should I be helping people more (the answer is always yes, but I'm selfish)?

Am I spending my time in the best way possible? What can I learn, and how can I learn it?

How do people break free of the narratives they construct for themselves, and how can I?

Why does American culture have such a narrow definition of masculinity?

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I get depressed sometimes. It's sort of a family tradition. I'm managing it very well right now, though. :D

I read your profile before I looked at your photos. I probably read your answers to all the questions, too.
You should message me if
