My self-summary
I really enjoy the noun form of adjectives ending in 'ous' that end in 'ity', vacuity or veracity for example. Conversely, I hate when these nouns simply add 'ness' like contentiousness. I only recently found out that there is no word 'mellifluity'. It saddened me.

That about sums me up.
What I’m doing with my life
I live in Brooklyn and work in Manhattan. More specifically, living in Bushwick and working at the UN.
I’m really good at

Recitation of GZA lyrics

Reading while standing up on the subway
The first things people usually notice about me
My beard (perhaps this is wishful thinking)

The six things I could never do without
Headphones, good friends, the news, independent theaters, the occasional libation (wink), Liquid Swords.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The formation of political pluralism after the fall of the Soviet Union, epistemology, and the Wu-Tang Clan.
On a typical Friday night I am
Blah blah blah sometimes staying in, blah blah blah sometimes going out.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I like plain bread products, like bagels without cream cheese. I've only recently realized what a social pariah this has made me, so if this is a dealbreaker I... I understand.

You have not been to Budapest.

You are not racist (I've learned the hard way that this one needs to be made explicit).

You have ~good heart~.
