Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My general qualities: dreamer, creative, loyal, nerdy. They're not
all amazing, though: I'm also overly honest.
I am a big fan of wordplay, although I usually come up with it a
minute or two too late. I am consequently (or unrelatedly?) awful
at scrabble. I pay too much attention to meanings and will crack up
at an unintended double entendre at the most inappropriate
I'm a very easy-going type, if you're genuinely excited about
something, chances are i'll enjoy it too.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I spent five years in a whale's vagina, in the name of science. I
have now emerged from that splendid and worthwhile
environment(where I was frequently mistaken for a urologist despite
my lack of medical knowledge of or interest in the male
reproductive anatomy). I'm currently doing postdoctoral research in
a slightly different field, trying to cross-pollenate my idea
flowers with the constant buzzing of bureaucratic bees. (Beads?)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
(xkcd.com). Keeping my word. Making a plan. Following
directions. Listening. Skipping the BS. Making dessert.

Usually I go unnoticed until I open my mouth. If I'm in a group,
it'll typically be after a long silent period, and (hopefully...)
something astute or hilarious. People will laugh and then wonder
"where'd that guy come from?"

Things that are truly tangential to whatever is actually being
discussed. People eventually learn to smile and nod at my
puzzlingly offtopic comments.
A few weeks ago, I went for a walk and ran into a trio of kids who
were up to no good. One had a pillow, another was carrying a small
dog, and a third was carrying a kickball. They were camped out at
the side of the road waiting for a passing car, to do what I still
can barely imagine. My failure of imagination to even comprehend
their plan has kickstarted my focused efforts in creativity of
late. I've been doing a lot of 'creative' writing.

Alphabetizing. Blaspheming*. Clever. Different. Elsewhere.
Farsighted*. Gerrymandering*. Heedless. Inappropriate. Jazzed.
Kissing. Looking. Meandering. Needling. Ostriched*. Plastered.
Quiet. Rioting*. Spoofing. Trumping. Underwhelmed. Vacilating.
Whiffing. Xenarthral. Yowling. Zen.

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I had a dream awhile back where i was listening to Leslie Knope
give a presentation at a zoo. The animal in question was described
as the 'happiest animal on the planet' and was kept that way due to
the presence of a continuous fine mist of apple cider. I made a
comment that I would also be the happiest animal on the planet if i
had a mister full of apple cider, which i found uproariously funny
and woke up laughing hysterically.
I then looked back on the story and realized that it makes no sense
and is not funny at all. I think the dream was a meta-criticism of
myself for watching Parks and Recreation in the first place. The
dream occurred before recent seasons made the show actually worth
the time investment, so maybe my subconscious recognized that the
show was developing into something awesome.
I have a ton of dreams that I really enjoy talking about, so maybe
that isn't super private. Better: sometimes I edit my profile just
to get new people to look at it.

You give good banter or are interested in musing about the
metaphysical implications of the movie Her. I am currently
profoundly upset that I cannot rewrite my operating system to
achieve the Singularity (also: less profoundly yet still
fundamentally upset that I'm forbidden to rewrite future biological
OSs for 'ethical' reasons)
