Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Here's a question. Why are most my top percent matches in
California? Do more people from California use OKCupid, or do I
belong in California? Am I really a West Coast guy?
There was a fear I was going to be a pyromaniac when I was younger.
But, I outgrew it, or actually managed to channel the remaining
adult mania into the fire arts. You know, melting metal and casting
it into various shapes and sizes; casting glass, and firing clay. I
even used to blow glass, but the hobby got too expensive.
So, I guess I'm an artist. When asked about that, I have to resist
the urge to tell the unvarnished truth, which is: "I like to make

1) Me. (Too obvious?)
2) My Brain (I try to keep it in shape, but actually also...)
3) My Body (Can't do much without it, and I use more than my brain
4) My Friends and Family (Who may occasionally be a pain, but then
I reciprocate. So it all works out).
5) Material Instrumentality (the whole culture/tech thing is better
than just these pathetic teeth and claws of mine).
6) My Skills (I collect skills the way others collect knick-knacks.
And we all owe society as a whole for these skills. Sorry, Ayn Rand
fans, I prefer civilized company, so Shoo!).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
