Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I crave a good argument and nothing really turns me on as much as
when someone gives me an a-ha moment so I can realize I've been so

Most people I come across assume I'm Jewish and I can never tell
what they're implying. I'm not, though. Don't worry, just because
some people think it's ok to guess my ethnicity, I promise not to
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.

3. snow slush

out, get smashed and pass out around 9:30. And, yes, exactly 9:30
