I work hard and I play hard. I love dogs, but don't yet have one to call my own. I manage a kitchen on Capitol Hill, but I don't like being called Chef. Vitamin D is the only God I worship. I won't disagree with you right away, but I'll find ways to prove I'm right over time. I feel like I should live in Spain despite never having been there. I'll try most anything once and most everything thing three times.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm practicing my inadvertent Cheffing at a pretty sweet beer bar
on Capitol Hill. Although that consumes a lot of my time and energy
I do my best to have a life outside of work. In that loverly land
called Free Time I lounge in the sun with a book and music, float
around in a local lake, find a camping spot to build a fire, try
new (to me) dive bars and posh restaurants, try to make good food
out of what I little rations I have sitting in my kitchen or just
I’m really good at
Opening #10 cans with a shitty household can opener. Reading out loud. Sleeping in. Laughing. Making breakfast burritos/sandwiches. Making rice. In a rice cooker. Owning up to being wrong. Being inappropriate.
The first things people usually notice about me
I hear tell it's my smile. Which, I mean, after 6 years of braces I would hope people notice how great my smile is. Or just as often when my hair is short, the tattoo on my head.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Space. Time. Work. Did I put in that bread order? Where does he buy
his tiny man clothes? What should I be doing right now? Where the
fuck did I put that thing? Why is my weed in the fridge?
On a typical Friday night I am
Anywhere. Depends on the plans. Dancing, a house party, home doing laundry, working till 1am. Hopefully not the latter. That would be a really long shift.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm real shy. No one believes me, but it's the truth.
You should message me if
I respond well to flattery.
