Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
UPDATE 7/25/15: I am having BIG technological problems at the
moment. If I am silent, it does not mean I don't like you.
I am the kind of person who will never ceased to be amused by
bubble wrap. If it ever becomes illegal to manufacture, and it has
to be harvested from the Pacific Gyre and sold on the black market
for lots of money, I will buy that bubble wrap so I can pop it.
Should there time a-come in which the last bubble wrap bubble's
been popped, I will not want to live any more.
I'm cis, straight (sorry, bi- and homosexual men, but we can still
be friends), and not-quite-white, but it's not my fault other dudes
are a bunch of dicks, and I hope they'll quit being dicks soon. I
am in favor of equality, but I find a lot of conversations about
contemporary feminism bewildering, and if you could guide me
through that wilderness, that'd be cool. Reading lists and
explanations and maybe chalk illustrations might help; I'll
probably get the point eventually.
South Carolina is where I came from, but I am not there any more
because it is owned by mosquitoes. They only let the humans live so
they can feed on them. I came to San Francisco via Florida, Spain,
Hawaii, Texas, West Virginia, Washington (the state, not the place
with all the shiny monuments), the Netherlands, and some other
places. Life's not perfect here in San Francisco. Still, I like
this place enough to stick around.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Studying. That's what students do, isn't it?
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
making you think you're about to read something amusing about salsa
dancing, homemade salsa, charity athletic competitions of some
sort, jiu jitsu, the harpsichord, or some other typically
superhuman BARP (Bay Area Renaissance Person) shit, when in fact
you will do no such thing.
I really don't think I'm good at anything.
The first things people usually notice about me

is my face, usually the eyes that linger too long on the eyes of
strangers like orbs of pure creepiness. It's something I ought to
quit doing, I know, but the windows to some souls have stained
glass in them.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Classic lit: Crime and Punishment. Fantasy: Jonathan Strange and

I like Bergman films; I watch them in the dark whilst drinking dark
red wine and frowning darkly behind a shroud of cigarette smoke
that is not dark, but shiny and sparkly instead.
Tunes. Sound waves. Kinetic energy like a mosh pit of air
molecules, eh? I don't know of anything that is new or obscure or
both. Feel free to scoop the wax out of my ears and pour some yummy
new (to me, at least) ear candy into them. Megadeth, Joy Order, PJ
Harvey, J.S. Bach, Robert Johnson the blues dude, Bauhaus, X,
Wailers-era Marley: what I might listen to on a typical
Television. Isn't that the glowbox with moving pictures and sound?
And little metal whatsits sticking out of it?
I like dead plants that have been torn to shreds. Mmm. Runny
chlorophyll and the shrieking of baby carrots. Die, carrots, die.
Lamb's tasty, too. If it was in The Little Mermaid, I probably want
to eat it.
Visual art (that does not move): Dali, Escher, Bosch, Giger, Ryden,

I spend a lot of time thinking about

the nature of thought, and whether we will understand it as
completely as I would like during my lifetime.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
at home, perusing science news while fresh coffee brews.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

is that I am turned on by some fairly odd things.

you bloody well please. You like my face. You have a bicycle and
are willing to ride it somewhere. You are a badass. You are a bi or
gay dude who will not hit on me, drunk or sober, and actually just
wants to be friends.
