My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a lapsed hedonist, poking his head out of the blankets and blinking at the sunlight.
I'm energetic, inquisitive, and when I find something to be really funny my laugh starts off as a tea kettle whistle/wheeze for a few seconds before it finds a gear and gets going.
I've yet to meet a dog whose nose I haven't eventually booped.
I'm lucky enough to be in a position where I'm enjoying my current direction in life; figured I'd see if someone was interested in coming along with me for a little while.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Investigating as many dark, seamy underbellies as I can fit into my schedule.
Toiling away in networking, eating stuff.
Traveling, writing, sipping wine.
Eating right, testing frozen surfaces with my tongue, and taking long runs so I can feel that I've earned this frittata, damn it.
Sautéing onions, garlic, and carrots in bacon fat, then dousing the whole thing in white wine and standing over the skillet to inhale the steam.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Reading, conversing, hiking. Basically any "ing". Well, any good "ing". I'll pass on genuflecting and harpooning.
Effortlessly steering a conversation off on a wild tangent without you being aware it's happening until it's too late to do anything except hang on and enjoy the ride, baby.
Fetching items from low branches for the diminutive. Fruit, and such. Or maybe a kitten.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My height, how quickly I talk, and very likely the hippo I brought into the store with me. "Pardon me," the clerks say, "I couldn't help but spot your hippo.""Yes indeed," I reply, "I expect it was the first thing you noticed about me."
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Murakami, Belano, Chabon, Gaiman, Calvino, Helperin, Pynchon, Wallace, Cantor, Mitchell, Egolf.
Lawrence of Arabia, Jules et Jim, Harold and Maude, The Big Sleep, Princess Bride, WALL-E, The Awful Truth, and the Lego Movie has worn awfully well so far. Also, if for the next Spider-Man movie they had Spidey repeatedly saying the phrase "My spider-sense, she tingles!" in a heavy accent, I would be in the theater on opening day.
Community, Arrested Development, Doctor Who, 30 Rock, Firefly, Battlestar Galactica, Venture Bros, Mad Men, Deadwood, Futurama, Archer, Breaking Bad.
Pixies, Django, Janis, Basie, Black Keys, White, Waits, Watson, Lead Belly, Belle and Sebastian, Chuck Berry, Die Amsterdam Klezmer Band, OCMS, Lucinda Williams, Velvet Underground. Also, if Neil Young dropped an album that featured nothing but him strumming a guitar and repeatedly singing the phrase "My spider-sense, she tingles!" in a heavy accent, I would be so all over that, stunned but happy. Neil, if you read these things, take note.
All of the food. All of the food!
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Music, books, some sort of writing medium (papyrus would be pretty cool and get-backish, so I'll go with that), thermal underwear, wine, and soup.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Today it's been a fair bit of reflecting on hogs and their awesome wiggly snouts. Hogs and, as always, monkeys. Also travel, travel, and possibly travel.

Beets! If I'm honest they're what I was thinking about when I wrote this (and the previous) sentence, and hold no special place in my brain. They're pretty awesome, though, so I'm considering thinking about them more often. If that happens I'll come back and remove this bit and all you'll read is "Beets!" and then nothng else.

Still thinking about monkeys, too. Ooh, monkeys enslaved by super-intelligent beets would be fun to think about! I believe I shall do so.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Out poking around live music venues looking for something good, or eating at home while hunched over a book or tablet, or meeting up for a beer, or sitting in a theater watching something either good or not-good, or sitting in a playhouse watching something either good or not-good, or eating at a restaurant hunched over a book or tablet, or whistlin'. Sometimes all of the above! Those Fridays are the best Fridays.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
A childhood experience at a kiddie haunted house was extremely effective; as a result I still get a brief flash of an eyeball every time I bite into a cherry tomato. This hasn't reduced my enjoyment of cherry tomatoes, but I do think to myself every time, "I wonder what it would be like to bite an eyeball?"
As you might imagine, this makes most salad encounters a tad darker than they used to be.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
it doesn't cause you injury. Please don't injure yourself on my account. Unless you're messaging me 'cause of your interest in finding a traveling partner, in which case I'm ok with some slight spraining. If that's your situation, remember - ice, then heat.
