My self-summary
I like to learn stuff. Pretty much anything. If it's there, and I don't want to learn about it, it's usually just because I don't understand it yet.

My favourite quote, and the closest thing I have to a personal philosophy, is "Nec quod fuimusve sumusve, cras erimus." That means, loosely: "what we were and what we are ain't what we'll be tomorrow." Ovid wrote that. He's a swell dude. Most of the time.
What I’m doing with my life
I am working on a project of Radiohead songs with the lyrics replaced by text from online dating profiles called "OK Compupid." If you or someone you know can do a good Thom Yorke impression, please contact me immediately.

Similarly, immediate contact is requested if you have a piano I could re-learn on.

But akchully, I just finished a contract and now I'm looking for another. Got any leads?

I also take classes online for fun (and profit? Maybe one day.), and I am occasionally paid to write trivia questions.
I’m really good at
Making french toast, thinking skeptically, opening beer bottles with a trowel, the J-stroke.

I can also stand on my head, but not that well. It kind of feels like my nose should be bleeding afterwards.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Under books, The Phantom Tollbooth, A Canticle for Leibowitz, A Confederacy of Dunces, Stranger in a Strange Land, The Satanic Verses, and Foucault's Pendulum. I'd be remiss if I didn't mention Achewood.

Under movies, The Bridge on the River Kwai, The Apartment, Brick, Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory, The Warriors (based on a play by Xenophon, don'tcha know), American Movie, Harold & Maude, The Ox-Bow Incident, and (almost) all the Coen Brothers.

Under music, as a sampling, Pavement, David Bowie, Beastie Boys, Elvis Costello, Neil Young, Jonathan Richman & the Modern Lovers (particularly when a pick-me-up is in order), Talking Heads, Nick Cave, Velvet Underground.

The best song ever written is "Don't Stop Me Now" by Queen. The worst might well be "Werewolves of London."

Adventure Time, Comedy Bang! Bang!, and Jeopardy!. That's one exclamation point per show.

Under food, all sorts. French toast was already mentioned, but it must have real maple syrup.

And none of these lists is actually very good. Don't you find it's easier to come up with these sorts of things when you're actually talking about them?
The six things I could never do without
My iPod, good crossword puzzles, Sodastream, a pair of slippers, something to clean my glasses with, and a bathrobe. Honourable mention goes to bowties, but I guess I could survive without those.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
MOOCs. Linguistic cognates. Mnemonics. The evolution of carnivora. Did you know that hyenas are much more closely related to cats than to dogs? That's crazy!
On a typical Friday night I am
relieved and excited.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
When I was around 6 years old, my family and my best friend's family held a garage sale. The owner of a nearby candy store, Sugar Mountain on Eglinton, wanted to purchase a Lite-Brite to make a sign for his store's window. He offered the adults a free Slush Puppy for each of the five children present, which we greatly enjoyed, in exchange for the ware. Two weeks later the store was out of business. I have never forgiven myself.

You should message me if
you want to come to the ROM and let me gush words at you for a few hours. If the emoji you use most often is the smiling poop. Or if you'd like it if I made you an espresso.
