My self-summary
-I value my sense of humor very, very much, which makes it hard to think of anything funny to say here to prove it.
-I can lick my own elbows. Seriously, I'm not making that up, I'm not even proud, I just can, so if you've heard it's impossible then find me and stand back because you will flip out. Or not, it's kind of anti-climactic.
-I love to collect random, esoteric trivia.
-I love words, written or spoken.
-I'm an amateur poet. It's one of the few things in my life that I'm very serious about.
What I’m doing with my life
Just now having finished his illustrious English degree at the University of Oregon, our young hero continues his quest to find truth, and light, and beauty, and the tantalizing glories of contact center work in the short term disability department of a huge corporation. Perhaps this Hillsboro place will bring him the legendary fate he so richly deserves.
Maybe not. Who knows?

Oh, I have a poetry blog. Read it if you like that kind of thing, or if you're a masochist and don't like that kind of thing.

UPDATE: I've been really getting into running, and so far I've done a 5k and a couple of 10k's. Portland has awesome opportunities for running events, but so far I've mostly been training solo. If anyone out there needs a running buddy, feel free to hit me up.
I’m really good at
Not sleeping. Or, I guess you could say I'm really bad at sleeping. I can bullshit like no one else. Building an aura of scholarly knowledge with little or no actual expertise is one of my major skills. I mean, come on, I'm a liberal arts graduate.
I'd like to think that I'm moderately ok at writing poetry. I'm certainly good at enjoying writing poetry.
Reading out loud. Seriously, I wish there had been a major for that.
Knowing/spouting random trivia.
The first things people usually notice about me
Hmmm, that I look like Harry Potter? Or, that I look like that creepy guy with the glasses from Sin City? Or, perhaps, when my hair is long, and my glasses are off, that I look like Frodo?

I can seem kind of nerdy, but with literature and comics and music, so, socially nerdy?

Yeah, I know, nice try.

The six things I could never do without
friends, love, beer, my stereo, choice parts of the internet, good books/poetry
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Mostly poetry stuff, inane comic book trivia, and what everyone happens to be up to.
On a typical Friday night I am
Hangin' out with friends, almost certainly drinking or other party related activities, though I really only like small get-togethers, party-ettes as it were.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Hmmm, you already know that I can lick my elbows, and about the comics... I don't know, I'm pretty shy, I guess that's private by definition. I don't drink hard alcohol for personal reasons; you'll have to ask me about that in person.

  • Ages 18–30
  • Near me
  • Who are single

You should message me if
You're not a computer program trying to trick me. If I sound like fun, if you want a friend, if you want someone to talk to, if you're cool, even if you don't think you're cool, I'll probably still talk to you.
