I may not be the sharpest fish in the forest, but well, yeah I'm
one of the sharper ones. Rake, raconteur, rapscallion,
What I’m doing with my life
SF native architect, renovating old schools, building new schools,
living in a haunted mansion in the Castro, it's going pretty damn
well I tell myself sometimes.
I’m really good at
Writing, dancing, careering, making clever ripostes, holding my
liquor, honing my self-descriptive internet dating skills so that

cobbler and the hat off a haberdasher.

The six things I could never do without
Scotch, Smartphone, Satire, Shenanigans, Sexy Stuff, Something Else
that Starts with S, Seuss! That's it.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How I will eventually destroy you. No, but really...
The world and all those people in it! Consummate consumer of NPR
and the BBC, many topical broad/podcasts. I'm a very
lefty&internationalist political person but can't stand the
righteous of any ideological persuasion including my own. Don't
like to talk about it really with people that aren't already into
it. Annnd Syria, obsessed with Syria.
On a typical Friday night I am
Drinking away my admittedly few sorrows.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Self-defamation is not in my character, only false humility.
You should message me if
You're cute as a button and clever as a field mouse. You'd like to
go for cocktails, or an evening stroll in a lovely park you did not
know exists (alert your embassy beforehand).
