What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Exploring DC and building a new community. I'm up-and-down from CT a lot these days visiting family and helping out with some stuff up there.

Figuring out how to make crust in time to bake a strawberry-rhubarb pie while it's in season is my current mission in life.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
finding great used books and records, making Tres Leches, having unusual experiences, Trivial Pursuit, finding out what I have in common with someone, making people laugh, singing in the car, keeping old friends, dancing to "Roller Coaster of Love," road trips, getting around on foot, making friends with your dog.

I read A TON. I love short fiction: Peter Taylor, William Maxwell, Andre Dubus, Elizabeth Spencer, Stuart Dybek, John Updike. "Momento Mori" by Muriel Spark is my favorite novel that I've read recently. The NYRB Classics series is amazing, especially: "Herself Surprised," by Joyce Cary; "A Game of Hide and Seek," by Elizabeth Taylor; and "The Go-Between," by L.P. Hartley. Tolstoy and Henry James for classics. P.G. Wodehouse, Ross MacDonald, and John McPhee for fun.

Music: funk, soul, R&B, and disco. Donny Hathaway, Chic, The Mary Jane Girls. Had a monthly DJ gig in the Mission for years, and--many years ago--was a house music-listening club kid. Have a special soft spots for mid-60s pop ("Bend Me, Shape Me," "Carrie Anne," "Windy"), and for 80s freestyle ("Point of No Return," "I Can't Wait," "I Didn't Mean to Turn You On"). Bill Frisell is the coolest musician alive in America right now.

Food: I like breakfast for dinner, Korean BBQ, pie (vs. cake), green curry, baba ganoush, nectarines, and things you would find in a Jewish deli.

TV: I'm a "Columbo" freak. Is anything on TV these days actually better than Columbo? I love the way he circles his prey, and the queasy look the perps get on their faces when they realize he's onto them.

I like baseball. Wanted to play 3rd base for the White Sox when I was a kid.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
People to love, gratitude, a way to be useful, hope, reading, music
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Why men in DC dress like Easter eggs.

Side note: Unless a man is an overweight criminal defense lawyer from Louisiana with country ways that belie a skewering intellect, he shouldn't wear a seersucker suit.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Probably at Trio's with a big group of guy friends, having laughs and talking too loudly about things that are inappropriate. They are great, but I'd happily throw them over for a special lady. They would understand.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I think it's possible to be too goal-oriented. I don't want to always treat my life like it's in need of fixing, or to continually miss out on what is actually going on around me right now because I'm focused on something else I've assumed is better. This is after being highly goal-oriented my entire life.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are nice, cute, and fun. You don't take money from your parents. If anyone has ever told you that you're down-to-earth. Maybe you can sing? You like to be in a room with someone else while each of you reads a book. You like coffee, pie, and the taste sensation when maple syrup collides with ham.
