My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I like to think I'm balanced; not well-rounded, but random points and edges that manage to form a whole.

So, what are my interests? A list that falls into a few buckets: endurance sports, ideas (yeah, that's vague), and food. Lots of food.

Love triathlon, running, cycling, and try (really hard) to like swimming. I'd love to sail, climb mountains, mush through the wilderness on snowshoes, but haven't had the chance (yet). Haven't skied much in recent years but happy to be back near mountains and can't wait to speed down them, flailing (near) out of control; that's my ski technique.

Love small books & big books, serious and shallow, and a wide range of "the arts" ... from so-called fine arts to more applied. Architecture in particular gets me hot. I like the word "polymath" and try to reflect it.

Where to start with food? I'm all for haute cuisine but real pleasure come from peasant food, things eaten with hands. I won't say I'm obsessed with coffee & espresso ... but our relationship is complicated. Adult beverages? Yes, please ... I shy away from connoisseurship (had to look that up to spell it correctly!), but I veer towards the micro/Belgian more than PBR, obscure wines than anything from a box. Gin or vodka? Gin! Bourbon or Scotch? By god, I'm an American: Bourbon!

Anyway, I'm new to Seattle - looking for people to show me what it's all about.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Filling it up and emptying it out ... over and over again.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Analogies. Often false analogies.

And risotto.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My inability to grow respectable facial hair or to shave it with any frequency?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Too many - I moved here from Brooklyn with about 30 boxes of books. A few favorites: Samuel Beckett's novels, Crowds and Power, Delueze's A Thousand Plateaus, a lot of Roland Barthes (Camera Lucida, Lover's Discourse), the sexy / totemic photos in Carlo Molina: Polaroids, Anatomy of Melancholy, Borges' Ficciones, The Rings of Saturn ... and then a lot of pulpy crime fiction (Richard Price), and sci-fi (PKD, JG Ballard, etc).

I worked in film distribution for a while, so sneaking off to the theater was almost accepted bad behavior. If it's Criterion Collection, I probably dig it. If it has really bad special effects, ditto. A few I love: Two Lane Blacktop, Sans Soleil, Hidden Fortress, Grey Gardens, 21 Up, F is for Fake, The Conformist, In the Mood for Love, Aguirre the Wrath of God, For a Few Dollars More, Touch of Evil, Woman in the Dunes, Killing of a Chinese Bookie, Daisies, If ..., Playtime, Wild Strawberries, The Searchers, Raging Bull, Sword of Doom, Suspiria, This is Spinal Tap, Stars & Watercarriers. Or pulpy TV like Twin Peaks or Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

I like way too much music. Dub? Grime? Banjo and the crackle of an old 78? The roar of guitar or squelch of 808s. Field recordings ... of Elephants playing bamboo instruments? Yes!

Lately I've really been digging southern food. And stews. It's Fall; now's the time to fatten up for the Winter. By and large, you name it, if it's authentic real food (in the Michael Pollan sort of sense), I'll probably eat it. Except beef. For a complicated set of reasons, I do not eat the flesh of the cow.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Time Away & Silence
Running Shoes
Chef's Knife
Internet (my friends & family are scattered; and how exactly did we survive BG - Before Google?)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I spend TOO MUCH time thinking; gimme action!
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?

Friday feels more like a middle than an end, a point between a full week and an ambitious weekend. I avoid crowds (Wednesdays are better going out nights, right?), cook something (simple or elaborate), drink something delicious, and settle down to watch something incredible. I like being up early Saturday to plunge into the weekend.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
This feels like entrapment.

All of the above didn't seem overwhelming, incomprehensible ... or boring?

If you like to explore the city, if you like conversation coupled with food and drink, if people with opinions and quirks are appealing, if you run / swim / bike or are otherwise adventurous ...
