My self-summary
I'm a lone wolf. Never really had a pack to run with. But I'm a sweetie-pie. My biggest regret is that I don't like peanut butter. Bookish, nerdy, shy. Autodidact.

I've never been able to blow a bubble.

For the most part, I hate parties. But perhaps I should stop trying to charm you with the things that I hate.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm the book-buyer, manager, and part-owner of a small used bookshop in San Francisco. I love my job.

I write cautionary tales for adults, and trudge daily through a novel that I will never complete.

I read. A lot.
I’m really good at
Clickin' my tongue really loud. Taking up valuable space with my bike on bart during commute hours. Noticing the subtle dynamics between Scully and Mulder. Daydreaming. Giving myself bad haircuts. Growing facial hair. Absolving myself of social responsibilities to watch another episode of Doctor Who. Worrying. I'm really good at worrying.
The first things people usually notice about me
My brother. I have an identical twin brother who also lives in Oakland and works in San Francisco. People think I'm him.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Carson McCullers, Sherwood Anderson, Robert Graves, Thomas Pynchon, pulp sci-fi, Kilgore Trout, George Orwell, Earthsea, Stanislaw Lem, Gene Wolfe, Dos Passos, Borges and Pessoa, William Blake, Arthur C. Clarke, G.K. Chesterton, Schopenhauer, Sartre, I Capture the Castle.

PT Anderson, Roman Polanski, Woody Allen, Children of Men, Coens, Baldwins and Coppolas, sci-fi, Tomas Alfredson, Eastwood, Paper Moon, and I've always had a big crush on Jena Malone.

Farscape, Doctor Who, Battlestar Gallactica, X-Files, Twin Peaks, Farscape, Firefly, True Detective, Mad Men, Quantum Leap, Farscape, Farscape, Farscape ... and Doctor Who!

Beethoven. Leonard Cohen. And Townes Van Zandt.

Pancakes. And Bacon.
The six things I could never do without
Books.
Bookstores.
Rainy Days.
Bookstores on Rainy Days.
Solitary late night walks. Solitary.
Pancakes. And Bacon.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Sentence structure, punchy dialogue, character development, how to re-fashion book sections to accommodate a new library, people, things.
On a typical Friday night I am
Working late, reading on the bart ride home, stoned, writing, &c.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
When I was seven I used to call my bellybutton a Salivou. I think that's how to spell it. Pronounced: Sa - lee - voo.

I have no idea why.
