My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Finishing up my first semester of grad school after moving out from Austin, TX. Still getting to know the area.

How about this--I like to wax all existential and absurd and roll this little world around and around in my brain until it all seems like a beautiful, strange and subtle joke. I do that more often after a couple of drinks. It's an odd life, and not as cruel as you'd think.

I'm a dilettante, or I've had that tendency in the past. I dabble in whatever happens to capture my interest. Lately, I've been writing stories.

I'm a good and loyal friend, and good company, though a little hard to pin down. It's nothing personal.

I despise laughter.

I don't think I come across as pretentious.

I don't have many pictures of myself, for whatever that says about my personality.

Here are some random numbers and letters:

I am cheerful and cynical. I'm less cynical than I was when I was younger.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
New to town, from Austin, TX. Working at this "being a writer" thing. I've had a little success at it. I've published a couple of stories, I've won a few prizes, and I'm here in Virginia on a creative writing fellowship at Old Dominion. Graduate school, because even successful writers don't make any money. You have to have a teaching job. I want to do all of that.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Sounding like I really know what I'm talking about.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My smile. I think I've got pretty eyes, too.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: I like the modernists. Joyce, Kafka, Camus, Virginia Woolf. Lately, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Salmon Rushdie, and Thomas Pynchion. I discovered Bruno Schultz recently, and I've been enjoying the hell out of him.

Film: I've been on an old, silent movie kick. It was a different artform; a lot of good stuff. I like Fellini and Godard and Bergman and all those heavy-hitters. Woody Allen's great. And trashy stuff.
Trash is always fun.

Music: I'll always have a soft spot in my teenage heart for all those ninties inde-rock bands like Pavement, Sebadoh, GBV, Sonic Youth, etc. I like a lot of psychedelic, experamental music. I like noise. I like a lot of other stuff too.

I like punk rock and bourbon.

I like all kinds of food. Total trash or brilliant gourmet. I like dishes in between, too, but don't notice them as much.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I've done without most things at one time or another. I don't think there is any particular thing I could never do without. I value supportive company more than I used to. Maybe I'm getting weak.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Life, the world, politics, history, art, litterature. You know, all that.

I also think a lot about food and sex.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Having a drink with a couple of friends. Or a couple of friendly drinks.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I once designed a device that could destroy the world, then I ate the blueprints to keep it out of the hands of a self-destructive and nihilistic humanity.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You like dorky O.K. Cupid profiles and the men who write them?There is really no reason not to message me.

Also, if you want to show me your favorite things about Norfolk/Hampton Roads, you should especially message me.

And I don't really despise laughter.
