Like everyone else here, I don't particularly care for talking about myself, but like everyone else here I want someone to be interested in me. So it looks like we're all in the same uncomfortable position. Like the back of a Volkswagen.
I just got back to town after working the end of the season at a restaurant on a tiny little island off of Rhode Island. It's a gorgeous out there, and it's my favorite place in the world. Being able to hear the ocean is very calming. I'm looking forward to enjoying autumn in New England and then subsequently hating winter in New England (This year can't possibly be as bad as last year, right? Please?).
I went on a 10,000 mile road trip across America a couple years ago,never taking the same road twice, all by myself, with only a Donatello action figure to keep me company. I kept a travel journal the entire time and it's now one of my most prized possessions.
I like to say I have a Champagne palate and a High Life wallet. I have an appreciation for the finer things, but I'm not a snob about it.
What I’m doing with my life
I used to joke that having an English degree really only qualifies you to be a bartender, but to be honest I'm really proud of the fact that I work in restaurants and bars. I get that people will always ask when I'm going to get a "real job", but I get paid very well to do a very stressful job, and I do it very well. Plus I get to try all of the beers and cocktails and wines and food that I want, and I get to watch everyone else get hammered and act stupid. It's like a reality TV show.
I'm just trying to be the best human being that I can be. I think a lot of people spend a lot of time measuring their lives and success on careers or money or things, and not enough on kindness and building relationships with the people they truly care about.
I’m really good at
A bunch of things I suppose. At the very least I try to be a really good human being. Judging by the people I have in my life and their opinion of me, I'd say I'm pretty successful at that one.
I play a bunch of instruments, and a couple I can even play well! I like to write, but I've fallen out of practice.
I have what some may call an unnecessary knowledge of whiskey, beer, cocktails and wine.
I'm also really good at games that can be played with a beverage in hand, preferably outside on a summer day such as, but not limited to, wiffle ball, bocce, horseshoes, ladder golf and kan jam.!
The first things people usually notice about me
Rapier wit? Hipster glasses? Clever t-shirt?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I like books, movies, TV, music, and food. A lot. So much so that
it would be a waste of my time and yours to attempt to list all of
the things that I like.
You know what I don't like? Dubstep. Dubstep sounds like
non-consensual robot sex. Every time you listen to dubstep, a robot
The six things I could never do without
and the people that I'm lucky enough to call my friends
And a library card.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How language affects everything that we do, and how everything has its own language, from English to Math to Music to anything. In order to learn something you need to learn the language of what it is that you want to learn. If you can't express to others what it is that you are doing or trying to do, then you can't get help with it and more importantly, you can't really share it with others.
How I want to write a comic in which Hall and Oates are a crime fighting duo, and their archenemy is "The Maneater", a sultry femme fatale. They would be helped out by their man inside the police force, Private Eyes.
Whatever happened to running away with the circus? Wasn't that a thing for a while? I could totally run away with the circus.
On a typical Friday night I am
The same thing I do every night Pinky. Trying to take over the
But in actuality, most likely working. And if I'm not working, then
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Well that wouldn't be very private if I told you. That would be like going from here to there. By the time you got there it would be here.
You should message me if
You're funny and kind and interesting. You try to be as positive as
you can be despite how ridiculous things can get. You realize that
the only thing you ever have complete control over is your own
reaction. Or if you want to tell me your OKCupid horror stories of
men pulling up their shirts and using terrible grammar to suggest
lewd behavior. That shit is hilarious to me.
However, none of this matters if you believe in the antiquated
gender roles that say that the guy should make the first move,
which I always thought was bullshit. If you want to say hi, just go
for it. Just sayin.
