Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a nerd. I like new-book smell and sometimes old-book smell. I
don't mind when I get a used book that smells like tobacco because
it makes me hope someone sat in a big leather chair with brandy and
a cigar to read it. And tried to turn the pages with a hook
I waste heaps of time going from article to article on Mental
Floss, How Stuff Works, or Slate.
I like elaborate, Lucy-and-Ethel sorts of scheming to various ends.
I'm really just a sucker for things I haven't done before. If it's
an adventure I have no experience with, I'm very likely to say yes
just on principle. Especially if it's outside.
I could spend a whole day watching Clint Eastwood movies.
My favorite people are creative and resourceful and know how to
treat others well, and they have personal ambition but don't take
themselves too seriously. I like to hang around folks I can learn
I have an awesome partner - DollarEL
- who likes blues dancing, Star

Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I've been meeting the most amazing people with fantastic talents

The Dharma Bums is my favorite. Runners-up include The Hitchhiker's
Guide, The Picture of Dorian Gray, Sex at Dawn, Tao of Pooh, the

I think I missed out by not reading Catcher in the Rye when I was
The Emperor's New Groove is my favorite movie. Seriously.

Antique, Meat Loaf, Jack Johnson, David Newman, the Beatles. Tom
Waits. Weezer, Radiohead, and Iron & Wine.
I've been eating mostly paleo for the past year or so, and it's
been great! Turns out I make a bomb-ass Korean bbq pork with

Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Tricks and training for my border collie pup.
My sick little nerd dream of visiting the Bodleian Library.

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am guilty of little collegiate transgressions like trespassing,

mind and listen to what I was thinking. Now I'm quite glad that

As a direct result of meeting people on this site, I've become a
certified scuba diver and have discovered H3. If you are looking
