bone-dry sense of humor. daydreamer. i get along with almost everyone i meet. Peripatetic mind, jack-in-the-box energy.

movies (off the top of my head): bottle rocket, rushmore, in bruges, layer cake, the believer, wet hot american summer, days of heaven, the thin red line, old boy, lots more.

tv: dexter, the thick of it, peep show, it's always sunny in philadelphia, sons of anarchy, no reservations, boardwalk empire, bored to death. i don't know: sometimes i like sublimating my brain in a thick, syrupy suspension of awful TV.

and eating is my favorite recreation (on par with sports). I'll try anything. i've had brains, snake, dog, gator, cockroach, brains, ants, squirrel, goat testicles, haggis...

I love korean food (esp. sundobu jjigae), italian, Indian, Thai...
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
i like to keep it simple, and i'm trying to learn not to miss all the things i lose...But I have a massive appetite for life: I love the world.

So fuck six: here's a litany:

It would be hard for me to live without my books and friends.

watching soccer, playing sports: running around like a little kid chasing a basketball, baseball, football, frisbee, or tennis ball once in a while.

Mangoes and bananas. Mackerel and tuna. Feta. Kimchi. Steak. Dark, leafy greens. Eggs. Garlic. Steak. Lamb. Pork chops and bacon. Yogurt, milk and cheese. Almonds. Cool water on hot days.

Weather. I like feeling pummeled by the elements. Spiderweb lightning. The smell of the earth before the monsoon and the smell of misted ozone when the rain comes. How thunder feels in your guts.
Fuzzy, gray, melancholic days. Wintertime besieging you and the coziness of being inside.

Swaddling myself in a gauze of too-much-sleep.

Waking up really early and watching the world wake up.

A really good, hoppy beer.

Planes, trains and automobiles.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
time. it seems like no matter what you start considering eventually you end up in the same cul-de-sac confronted by the same mystery.

and food. i fantasize about what i'm going to eat later. i daydream about cooking. I like shopping for food: i love how it looks. i feel like a little kid every time I go to the supermarket. i follow food smells down the street. i'm epicurean: a little pleasure on the palate fires the imagination.

books.

travel. i always have the itch. i want to go to mongolia. i want to go to tierra del fuego. i want to go to burma. i want to go to israel, palestine and syria. i want to go an ice hotel in scandanavia.
On a typical Friday night I am

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You like to read about this world of ten thousand things; you like to eat; you want to have knock-down drag-out debates about politics and literature, but you understand that arguing isn't fighting; you're fun; you want to wander; you have an easy laugh.

you want to try to find awesome things in the city that we have still, somehow, failed to discover.
