My self-summary
Update 2/2/16: The Iowa caucus results are in...I received just 12 fewer votes than former Virginia governor Jim Gilmore. A deeply heartfelt thank-you to all my supporters.

My version of Interstellar would be pretty much the same as the original, except that Michael Caine's character eventually becomes a talking skeleton. (This is never explained).
What I’m doing with my life
I'm an attorney now. Regard my many neckties.

In my free time I run, ski, bike to Gresham, follow politics, listen to a lot of music, etc. Also started going to the Portland Rock Gym a couple months ago.
I’m really good at
Assembling Ikea furniture, reading aloud, bodysurfing right up onto shore like a noble seal, tending bonfires, getting handed a setlist after the show (long reach).

The six things I could never do without
When it's so cold that the snow doesn't stick to anything and just swirls around in the intersections
Brainy women
Large trees
Long novels
The endless misfortunes of Jeb Bush
That steel-drum cover of Gary Numan's "Cars"
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Responsible magic mushroom advocacy.

On a typical Friday night I am
At some goofy rock show. The opening act is a drone band. One of the guys is playing a briefcase that warbles and glows green when he opens it.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
That until college, I thought goats were male sheep. (I hadn't given it a lot of thought).
You should message me if
If you'd like a boyfriend to watch the GOP primary debates with, and also to write you a lot of dirty, heartfelt, slightly overwritten love letters.
