Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I like the taste of water. I don't own a Tv, but keep rewatching
various Joss Whedon shows. My alarm goes off to music so I can wake
up and dance to start my day. I can be the most (ext/int)roverted
person you have every met, depending on the situation. I'm cerebral
and dorky, and down to earth and fun. I like some sci-fi, but hate
most of it.
I curse like a sailor stereotype, but invariably say things like
"shiatzu terrier" "holy snickerdoodle" and "F*** sh** ti*** f***"
because I enjoy saying things differently. I also say things like
"God Bless America" when people sneeze and in betwain instead of in
between the two of them. Google tells me that John Milton also used
that word. My boss told me that southerners do too.....
I like baseball far too much and far too frequently. (it's the
winter and I read baseball blogs every day)
I really like walking. I walked to my parent's home in NE Philly
from my place in CC because I felt like it. I can't bicycle,
because I thought I would keep on rollerblading. I don't own a car
because it's almost pointless where I live. And I like
I like making witty jokes. I like making dumb jokes. I like making
jokes about sex and about poop, though the latter tend to get stuck
inside my mind. (sorry)
I own a dart board, though it smashed to the floor the night I
first put it up. I own a lot of books (thousands) but most are in
I lived in England for three years and I miss it terribly.
I'm mostly "liberal," but my practical opinions are different than
my theoretical ones.
I drink 5-8 liters of water a day.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I write, teach and volunteer. I'm currently working on a novella,
but not banking out that banking.
The first things people usually notice about me

My either messy or curly hair. Sometimes that I wear the same
hoodie a lot, though that regards a more subtle type of noticing.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I'm kind of a non-mainstream culture fiend, but especially when it
comes to music. My top two categories are varieties of folk rock
(think Mountain Goats, Moldy Peaches, some brit-folk and Against
Me! for the range) and anything rock/punk that has a good base (the
Thermals, Raconteurs, Cage the Elephant etc.)
I'm a sucker for all sorts of good food, but especially middle
eastern. I'm a beer snob who drinks darker beers (stouts, browns
and only sometimes ipa) but I know nothing about wine. Also,
chocolate- that is all.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
So, people either take this question literally or answer what they
really like/ what makes up their style of day. Taken literally,
most of us can't live without the same sort of things.
On the other branch: I typically only drink three beverages, water,
beer and oj (+ pineapple sometimes). Yes, I drink coffee and tea,
but only for caffeine, not because I like it.
I really enjoy Netflix, though I watch a lot of stuff on other
types via other types of websites. I'm thankful for Amazon, not
just because I can find Kmart-esque prices, but because I don't
have to pay tax. I have little inclination to "screw the man," but
enjoy him not screwing me.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What I'm writing. And baseball. Questions of poltics, morality,
religion and philosophy. And when I'm done that, I spend time
thinking about possible metaphors for those things. I've been
wanting to write about Occupy recently, but only vague ideas have
come to mind.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I'd divide it into thirds. Either I'm doing something Jewy, going
out, or I stay home and try to write.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
To the whole world? Check later.
To someone I just met, surprisingly a lot.
