My self-summary
I'm a typical northwest person in that I love to be outside hiking, camping, swimming, biking, etc., complain about the rain all year and then walk around the first sunny day of spring as though I just won the lottery, wear jeans to work, and slather baristas with a good portion of my take-home pay.
What I’m doing with my life
I don't know, what are you doing with yours?

I'm trying to be a good parent and have meaningful work and enjoy the rest of what little time there is.

I admit it, I'm a poetry editor. If you're at all interested in what's editable about poetry, I can tell you.
I’m really good at
Folding maps. Cooking perfect rice.
UPDATE: I'm not really that good at cooking rice. It was just a fluke, a couple of times.
UPDATE UPDATE: Turns out the map was a fluke, also.
No, no, really, I'm very good at folding maps.
The first things people usually notice about me
I do a great Robert deNiro impression.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I will read pretty much anything I can get my hands on and I like movies a lot, too.

But music is the shit for me, in almost any way, shape or form.

And Vegas. And [adult swim].
The six things I could never do without
A good reading light.
My iPod. Oh god, nobody has an iPod. Make that Spotify.
Other people.
A sense of humor.
Side B of Abbey Road
A pen.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
When culottes are going to come back in style. Oh shit, they are? OK, back to thinking about the mysterious origins of the universe, the impossible physics of weather, and how to harness the power of entropy.
On a typical Friday night I am
Home watching vintage Spidey with my daughter. Or wondering what the word defenestration sounds like in an Australian accent.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
My thumbs are double jointed. And, I have been drinking 2 Emergen Cs a day, even though the emergency is over.
You should message me if
You like to read, or go and do stuff that's interesting, or both. You think most people are worth talking to. You like being read to. You're not mad that I end my sentences with prepositions.
