My self-summary
Disclaimers: not a couple profile, engaged, into consensual non-monogamy, doesn't believe in unicorns.

My life is...
A day to day gladiator battle: laziness vs. productivity, activity (or hyperactivity) vs. hermitism, extraversion vs. introversion, and now appearing in the Colosseum, IPA vs. stout.
Work, constant work. I'm always working on one thing or another, though I'm not always at work, you see.
Cheesy puns.
Coffee and cigarette binges.
Green, like the world, maaan.
Six hours of sleep at night, because I appreciate deep night, but can't wake up later than nine a.m.
Using sentence fragments when I know better.
Ritual, oh, how I love all the different sorts of rituals there are.
Being a thoughtful omnivore (Google it).
Bike rides.
A jam session.
A jug of whiskey.
A carafe/multiple carafes of coffee.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a bit busy these days; spending my weekdays as the Youth Services Librarian at Berkeley Public Library and currently working Sundays as a custom framer at Michael's. In my off time, I'm probably drinking a bit more coffee/beer/whiskey than I should, and playing around with my somewhat sub-par recording equipment or guitar, or watching too many shows.
I’m really good at
Being me; that includes information literacy, endurance guitar playing, coffee drinking, walking, writing poetry while riding trains, and stuff.
The first things people usually notice about me
My lips probs; I have a grotesque permapout. I have also been told I'm funny. I hope that is so.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Oh jeez. I'll give you authors: Flannery O'Connor, Graham Greene, C.S. Lewis, Stephen King, Richard Russo, Evelyn Waugh, Robert Heinlein, Homer, Virgil, William Blake, Walker Percy, T.S. Elliot, Cormac McCarthy, Isaac Asimov, etc. (These are just guys I can read over and over, they in no way comprise all of my reading materials).

Top 5 movies (in no particular order and frequently changing): Drive; Master and Commander; Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels; Jesus Christ Superstar; Moon.

TV shows: Star Trek: Next Generation; Star Trek, anything but Enterprise; American Dad; Futurama; Scrubs; Bob's Burgers, Vikings, Peaky Blinders.

Music (this is not a complete list of my favorites): everything from Mayhem, Slayer, Iron Maiden, Tool, Death, early Metallica, Megadeth, etc. to Jeff Buckley, Elliott Smith, Porcupine Tree, Bob Dylan, Amanda Palmer, Townes Van Zandt, Rodriguez, Dire Straits, Guster, and Cake , and speaking of food... My favorite dish is Steak Tartare.
The six things I could never do without
My brothers, a guitar, songs to play, stories, woods to walk in, and a warm place to poop.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How summer reading will likely drive me crazy, what library jobs I'm going to apply for next, music, people's actions, literary theory, philosophy, libraries, that itch behind your left eye at two a.m., and probably a lot of other stupid stuff.
On a typical Friday night I am
Jammin' (and I'd like to be jammin' with you), walking around in the woods, at a bar, practicing music, or something else. I've also got a fairly terrible addiction to Skyrim and Fallout: New Vegas.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm migratory: I move from one source of coffee to the next.
You should message me if read all of this and want to read more. will message me first; ain't nobody got time for gender norms. have a reference question. want to improve your information literacy. are/want to be poly. like trees some of the time. ride bikes. can put up with someone who can be loquacious and then silent for hours. like unnecessary and uncommon words. like listening to order emerge from chaos. like long walks and intelligent talks. want to make music with me.
...I make you laugh. never give up and you're into constant improvement. know and/or like dinosaurs. want to share some vegetarian recipes with me. want to tell me I'm pretty (dammit, I know I'm pretty!). want to play Dungeons and Dragons. No, seriously, it's been a while, and I'm itching for a good game.
