Just moved to the Bay, getting my sea legs, loving it.
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!
Learning Spanish. Just got back from a long trip in Latin America.
Reading when I can. Starting big books (frequently), finishing them (occasionally).
Someday I'd like to be the ubermensch.
Making seitan. Tofu's for chumps.

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.
