My self-summary
**I've been traveling for the past several months. I'm back home in Austin until August, when I leave for Virgina to pursue an MFA in creative writing. Old Dominion University in Norfolk has opted to give me a fair amount of money to attend their school and write a book. Between now and then, I'm devoting myself to one last idyllic Austin summer, full of water and lazy margaritas.**

How about this--I like to wax all existential and absurd and roll this weird 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 a curious place, where we live, and life really ain't that cruel.

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'm sometimes pretty funny.

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
Like I said, I've been traveling for the past five or six months working at this "being a writer" thing, and now I'm home for a little while. I've had some success at it, the writer thing. I've published a couple of stories, and I've won a few prizes. I'd like to complete a decent collection of short stories--and publish what I can out of it--before I go off to Virginia. 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
Sounding like I really know what I'm talking about.
The first things people usually notice about me
My smile. I think I've got pretty eyes, too.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
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
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
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
Having a drink with a couple of friends. Or a couple of friendly drinks.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
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.
