My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I try to live life like a Dar Williams song: enthusiastically earnest and good-naturedly self-aware, avoiding the twin traps of sentimentality and cynicism.

I'm a fair-trade vegan eco-socialist treehugging citizen of the People's Republic of Cascadia, heck yeah, but I'm also an anti-drug, Temperance-minded, intensely secular, pro-monogamy scientist. These things are mutually reinforcing; I get all sorts of excited about rigorously applying cost-benefit analysis and the Precautionary Principle to my everyday life, in order to hit as accurately as I can that tradeoff between Epicureanism and responsibility to myself and this Pale Blue Dot.

Like Dar, I grew up on the sheltered suburban margins of a Great Lakes state. I'm similar to other organisms that developed in stable environments without many natural predators: We focus on quality over quantity, and consume with the assumption that our grandkids will feel the effects of our choices. You could say I'm living like a big flightless island pigeon, but you could also say I'm living like a komodo dragon, which sounds way cooler.

I am wonky, wonkish, and a bit of a wanker.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
giving "life-affirming" hugs, generating an absurd amount of body heat, building long-lasting campfires, and eating things I find on the ground without getting sick.
The first things people usually notice about me

is probably that I'm male-bodied, more or less cisgendered (insomuch as anybody ever is), descend largely from vikings and people pillaged by vikings, and that I'm roughly sasquatchian in height and bulk. I stopped growing in Seventh Grade.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

It's not that any of this stuff isn't important, because the media we consume both impacts who we become and want to become, and acts as an indicator of where we are in that process. But it just takes up so much space.

I'm currently compiling that list elsewhere, and then I can link it here for anyone who cares to read it. Meanwhile, I'll use this space for something more fun:

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Dogs.

2. My Ex Boyfriends. They're my best friends and greatest allies, always willing to give me the helping hand, witty banter, constructive criticism, or kick in the butt that I need.

3. Kakapos. Do I identify too much with a giant, naive, pudgy, leaf-eating green parrot that thinks it can fly but can't and whose mating system's major feature is its lack of success? You bet!

4. Books, because in order to make sense of the weird world that I am and live in, I need to explore other worlds through other eyes.

5. Art, even (especially?) if it's just rearranging stones and leaves.

6. The Scientific Method!
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
, unless we're using a geologic timescale.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

I'm a pretty bad match, outlook-wise, for this region:
I openly admire Dian Fossey and Thomas Huxley, and more privately admire Carry A. Nation, all for similar reasons.

I think Dan Savage is the epitome of what goes wrong when refugees from the Culture Wars colonize a region and reactionarily build a culture in defiance of their conservative backgrounds, like an island inhabited solely by angsty teens.

Along that same vein, I did not care for Shortbus.

this gets you the way it gets me: Bret Weinstein is fond of saying, "Every species is a unique, successful answer to at least one question. Our challenge is to find out what the questions are."

This applies equally to all products and byproducts of natural selection: species, ethnic groups, lineages, political systems, biases, religions, commercials, pop songs, poetry, fashion, psychoses, etymologies, architecture, pictures of cats on the internet. Especially pictures of cats on the internet.

Douglas Adams was right. We've got all the answers we will ever need. Come and help me find the questions!
