Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
So after having a profile up here for a while I got sick of
thinking about editing it and decided to start fresh. I did that by
naming myself after this awesome dream I had once where I had what
you'd have to call a Sleipnir infestation in my kitchen, with
hordes of tiny 8-legged horses skittering under the fridge when I
turned the kitchen light on. It was pretty awesome.
Disappointingly, there were no tiny Odins to go with them.
I don't believe in taking most things seriously, which works pretty
well. I laugh a lot, anyway. And that is the A-1 Gold Star Top
Priority thing to know about me. Other than that I guess I am 'into
things' like fencing
and martial arts
. Dirty jokes
guess. Preferably at the same time.
I am likely to tell, bad jokes, and can't help it
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
My Master of Laws degree, for now, and then - presumably -
articling or other legal work of some kind. I'm having too much fun
doing all of this FABULOUS RESEARCH. Or perhaps not. But it's kind
of hard to say no to a scholarship of sufficient size for which all
you need to do is turn in some lousy paper.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I hate this question because I can't think of an answer that
properly nails the middle ground between 'conceited' and
'excessively self-deprecating'. Anyone else out there have this
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I actually haven't ever thought to ask anyone, but probably my heat
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Lots. Historical narratives or novels of any kind, mainly,
but I have a super guilty pleasure which is trashy military sci-fi.
Also if Franz Kafka were alive today I would sit on his front porch
like some sort of supplicant monk just to say that I had.
Movies: Again, lots. Blah blah blah this movie that movie and
another movie you've heard of already, but my two most favouritest
movies ever are Happiness (which you likely as not haven't seen)
and Hunt for Red October because Sean Connery's accent is so out of
place in a Russian submarine captain that it makes me go
Music: Whatever you got. Though I prefer classic rock to anything
made after about 1980 (with some notable exceptions) and have had
it UP TO HERE with Bach.
Food: I am about the least picky eater currently alive. But let's
say I had to pick something.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Arbitrary lists with not enough entries, telling the world about
myself in totally reductive little boxes, my portable hard drive
full of music and movies (kind of sad), some sort of travel plans
to look forward to, and wild, flailing improvisation.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
People from my past with whom I've lost touch, why it is that
people appear to AIM to be abjectly careless (pertains to
everything), What would have happened if I'd done sciency things in
undergrad instead, whether I remembered to feed my cat, what
percentage of books/movies/music I will ever actually get to enjoy
out of all the stuff I want to, and a zillion other things that not
even I really care about right now because - surprise! - I'm not
thinking about them, I'm thinking about filling text fields.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
If I ever get to the point where Friday nights are a time for
routines I'll feel as though I have failed myself somewhere down
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
...that I have this phobia.
A phobia about telling complete strangers anything I consider
That can probably wait until we've exchanged names or something,
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
- you're bored
- you want to not be bored
- you think you'd be up for being un-bored with someone else who is
similarly always looking for ways to be un-bored
Super special bonus points to people who want to come bicycling
with me around the city (I just got my new bike and I wanna see
some of the cool places it can go) or if you wanna get in a game of
squash somewhere. Excellent fun!
Seriously, don't overthink it, just shoot me a message. Come on,
it'll be fun. In exchange I promise to say hello to you if YOU look
like fun. After all, ain't that why we're here?
..then again, if you can't put together a sentence of at least 6
words, we have no future, friends or otherwise.
