My self-summary
I like: being cooked for, big libraries, bloody marys, carnivals, cuddling, day trips, dim lighting, down comforters, feminism, Hendrick's gin, hookahs, hot air balloons, Internet K-Hole, Lake Michigan, making lists, margaritas (ideally in the summer, kinda early in the day), the OED, pet names, sleeping late, slippers, thrift stores, waking up early, and wearing boys' shirts.

I dislike: bad wine, cheap toilet paper, driving on brick roads, Faulkner, militant Christians, people who stand on the left side of escalators (WHO RAISED YOU?), and sunburns.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a project coordinator at a big audit/advisory firm.
I’m really good at
Alphabetizing, bantering, cooking, decorating, grocery shopping, Just Dancing, listening, lounging, organizing, and remembering names and faces.
The first things people usually notice about me
On the street, people might notice me because I'm side-eyeing others who don't know how to walk like a normal human being with places to go.

Anywhere else, whatever. Why does anyone notice anyone? I will say, I'm pathologically low-key unless I'm drunk – then I will sing along to songs I maybe don't know the words to and talk to every single person who piques my interest. (It's more charming than it sounds.)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books 10% Happier, Bel Canto, Geek Love, Room, Valley of the Dolls, and Written on the Body. This isn't a book, but also, Archie Comics. Trust me - get drunk and buy one, you won't regret it.

Movies Alice in Wonderland (1985 TV version), the Breakfast Club, Clueless, Desperate Living, the Fall, Heathers, My Cousin Vinny, Overboard, Pink Flamingos, Troop Beverly Hills, and any terrible horror movie. In short: I have terrible taste in movies. The campier, the better.

TV the Americans, Broad City, the Good Wife, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Orphan Black, Pushing Daisies, RuPaul's Drag Race, and the Wire. (....also Catfish, Hoarders, Intervention, or anything on ID)

Music Afghan Whigs, First Aid Kit, Fleetwood Mac, Hamilton, the Hood Internet, Janelle Monáe, Joanna Newsom, Kanye West, Kendrick Lamar, Magnolia Electric Co., Meat Loaf, Nada Surf, Neko Case, Nicki Minaj, the Pogues, Robyn, RuPaul, Sleater-Kinney, Smog (and/or Bill Callahan), and Songs: Ohia.

But honestly? Just give me shitty pop music or slow jams; more often than not I want to be able to roller-skate or dance to the music I listen to.

Food Almond steamers, bánh mì, bananas, blood sausage, breakfast sandwiches, ceviche, cheese, coffee, croissants, cucumber, foie gras, grilled cheese sandwiches, gyros, pizza, quiche, red wine, sea scallops, and zucchini.

Podcasts 99% Invisible, Another Round, Criminal, Judge John Hodgman, Longform, MBMBAM, Mystery Show, Radiolab, Reply All, Sawbones, Serial, Sleep With Me, and Sword and Scale.
The six things I could never do without
Water.
Chapstick.
Conversation.
A goddamn paycheck.
TV.
Wine.

...in that order? Maybe.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Sex, money, which books to read, people I see on the street, how to decorate my apartment, where to adventure next, and all kinds of other things.

I also have a really creepy habit of imagining all the terrible things that could happen to me in any given situation.
On a typical Friday night I am
if out: with friends, probably half in my cup.

if home: watching a really bad horror movie, or drinking and doing puzzles/coloring and singing along to whatever is playing.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I made out with a carny. That was in 2004 and Lumpy and I are still facebook friends.
You should message me if
you know all the words to Paradise by the Dashboard Lights. Knowing the baseball announcer stuff would be impressive; I still can't lock that down.

But more importantly (I GUESS), you should message me if you're a good, funny man who's looking for something potentially serious and will indulge my thrice-yearly need to listen to early 90s country music.
