My self-summary
Just moved to the Bay, getting my sea legs, loving it. I've achieved more here in three weeks than I did in New York in three years.

I'm a pretty ridiculously open person. If you ask me a question I'll probably give you the whole answer. This can be disarming or off-putting.

The relationships I enjoy most are the ones where the other person and I are finding something new about ourselves when we're around each other--that we're better, funnier, crazier around each other than we are alone. Of course, if it's a romantic relationship, we're probably scared of some of the things we're finding out, too.

I'm a laid-back caffeine addict with a strong personality who likes girls with stronger personalities. I like girls who say things that are funny. Kindness is crucial, but decoupled from wit, daring, bite... snooze. Let's wake up!
What I’m doing with my life
Just moved here, but I'm officially a job-having motherfucker. Substitute preschool teacher and Kaplan SAT prep coach,so about half solution, half problem. I'd eventually like to be an ESOL teacher and/or nonprofit superstar.

Learning Spanish. Just got back from a long trip in Latin America.

Reading when I can. Starting big books (frequently), finishing them (occasionally).

I was in a sketch troupe for a while, and that was great, but nowadays I have gainful employment and a wonky schedule--I'll probably have to wait until I've got a boring 9-5 before I can have anymore fun on stage.

Someday I'd like to be the ubermensch.
I’m really good at
being comfortable, looking uncomfortable

Making seitan. Tofu's for chumps.

Gordon Voidwell put on the best recent live show I've been to. And other stuff!

Damon Albarn's comfortably rolling into pop star Vallhalla. Wish Blur'd go ahead and make a new album though.

Teenage Jesus and the Jerks are not the greatest band, but they might have the greatest band name.

Haruki Murakami's pretty brilliant as contemporary novelists go.

I was not a huge lover of modern poetry until I discovered Neruda, Vallejo,Lorca. Very woah. I've started writing some poetry for the first time in a while and I feel like I've stumbled on a vocabulary I'd been looking for all my life. This stuff's led me backward to Gongora, Calderon, others. I couldn't be more excited to be learning this language; what a plenty.

I do really like horror movies. Enthusiasm isn't required, but some tolerance is a plus.

Food: I don't buy meat, but if you're not gonna finish that burger, no reason for it to go to waste, right? Other than that, I am not a picky eater. Put food in me. If it is good, I will really like it. If it is bad, I will still probably like it. I'm also learning to cook and have fewer and fewer catastrophes in my kitchen.

Misc: Groucho Marx, coffee, Howard Stern, Tina Fey, Chris Morris, The Ricky Gervais Show, Stouffer's lasagna, Krazy Kat, bigghostnahmean.com

I spend a lot of time thinking about
I read a book that said that, early on in a relationship, when we feel our partner has hurt us, it's not so much what they've betrayed us, it's that they've betrayed the image of them that we've been building up in our heads. We've been eager to fill in all the gaps in our knowledge of them with the most flattering sketches we can manage--yet here they are, these real people, wiping out all our beautiful ideas of who they might be. So: how to treat real people like real people, and how to let gaps remain, maybe even enchantingly, gaps.

Before The Rules of the Game was my favorite movie, it was South Park.

You should message me if
Message me if you don't quote Family Guy: quoting Family Guy is getting really close to being a deal-breaker for me. If you'd take HBO or AMC over SHOWTIME any day. You're into ecstacy (the emotion). O, y si quieres practicar español conmigo entre besitos y caricias, chismeando y riendo.
