My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
The short version:
Likes: Complaining about the weather.
Dislikes: The weather.

The longer version:
Michigan native living in the Twin Cities. I like talking about things, or, alternatively, talking about nothing. I like listening too, it's sort of an essential element of the talking experience.

If you had to boil me down to a single word, it would probably be nerd. I generally enjoy games of any sort: card games, board games, video games, and the random games you make up to get through the day (who can build the biggest coffee cream singles pyramid is a perennial favorite, though I should warn you, I'm currently undefeated).

I follow politics rather obsessively, but I promise that my politics doesn't involve being judgmental about anyone else's.

Warning: I have a strong contrarian streak.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work as an legal editor, an incredibly undescriptive job title. I spend most of my day sitting at a computer screen reading through statutes, which would probably be boring to most people but which is not usually boring to me. Passed the Minnesota bar exam, admission ceremony is in a few weeks.

In my free time, as described above, I have a variety of nerdy pursuits. I also like to take long walks around town, just to experience the city from the ground level.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.

For your sake, I will endeavor not to make this just a series of incomplete lists.

I read a lot of nonfiction. Guns, Germs and Steel is probably the first non-fiction recommendation I'd give, though Nixonland is up there. If you want another one, feel free to ask.

My favorite work of fiction is probably Interface, by Neal Stephenson and J. Frederick George. More generally, my tastes go to sci-fi and fantasy (really just fantasy with the occasional cyber-punk novel thrown in). A few years ago, this meant a lot of Lovecraft, these days, it's a lot of Dresden Files. I'm currently reading James Clavell's Shogun, which is excellent.

It's not in the question, but I read a lot of non-books. The Economist and New York Magazine are both essential.

I feel like I can't name a favorite movie that won't be a completely arbitrary pick. It's probably either LOTR: The Two Towers or O Brother Where Art Thou, but on a different day, I might give a different answer. The most recent movie I saw in the theater was Fury.

I'm a big fan of hard rock/punk/ska. Millencolin and Streetlight Manifesto are at the top of my list. I mostly listen to music while driving, so my tastes tend to run to songs fast enough for highway driving. I listen to a lot of 93X these days. I also enjoy making mix cds entirely from music from video games.

I don't really watch television on the television any more, but on Netflix I'm always trying to catch up on the most recent seasons of Always Sunny, The League, New Girl, and, HIMYM. Community will probably remain my all-time favorite comedy. On the drama side of things, my favorite is probably The Wire, though The West Wing gets an honorable mention. I'm looking for a new show to obsess over, if you have a recommendation, drop me a line.

Every few months I get a strong craving for spaghetti, and I'm on the prowl for a good chinese place in St. Paul (if you've found one, please share). I tend not to be too adventurous, food-wise, due to a digestive health issue. It's not a serious problem, but I've found that my life is a lot better if I stick to things I know I can handle.
I will never say no to a hamburger.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
The book I'm reading now, the book I'm reading next, coffee, fall weather, board games, and friends with whom to play them.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Why the world works the way it does, or, usually, doesn't.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
At temple. i go about every other week. I don't consider myself a particularly religious person, but I find something very comforting about going to services. Something about carrying on the traditions of my ancestors. Saturday evening I'm out with friends, out at the theater, at a coffee shop with a book, or at home with netflix.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have not yet fallen victim to MSP's Bicycle-Industrial complex.

If you've ever had the "Which one's better, Sports Night or The West Wing" conversation.

You laughed at this comic:

If you're interested in going on open-ended adventures (Let's walk in that direction and see what's there!).

Or if you read the phrase "mix cds entirely from music from video games" and didn't stop reading.
