Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My favorite chore is doing the dishes, to answer a question this
survey's avoiding. A towering stack of pots and pans after a heroic
dinner party is better than dessert.
My favorite joke is one that Art Buchwald would tell about an
experience in Paris. He's there walking around when a taxi driver
lays into him with a slew of curses. Buchwald doesn't speak French,
so he can only think to respond, "Oh je suis, suis je?"
This thing doesn't ask for favorite joke, either, but c'mon, these
are crucial questions. I would say that two things worth knowing
about me are that I like to be helpful and I always laugh the
loudest. Something like this
? That'll do it!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working, writing, walking the dog, cooking, reading, playing some

Minor Threat's eponymous 1981 EP for some ad campaign. My headline:
"The Minor Threat, the Major Lift."

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Things as in objects, right? I've got this very 70s bedside alarm
clock that I treasure—so much so that I bought an identical copy on
eBay to keep as a backup. So I suppose that's two things. I'm not
too proud to admit I depend on my phone. I carry dice in my pocket
for making those profoundly difficult, simple decisions (Cobb salad
or gyro?). Do dice count as two? The sixth thing ought to be a
compass, as I'm reliably lost wherever I go.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Shapes and objects, tacos and Texas.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Well this question just makes me think about Friday Night
Lights! And on any given Friday night, I'd like to be seeing
high-school football or Explosions in the Sky.
