My self-summary
"To note that the thing I call my individuality is only a pattern or dance, that is what it means when one discovers how long it takes for the atoms of the brain to be replaced by other atoms. The atoms come into my brain, dance a dance, and then go out—there are always new atoms, but always doing the same dance, remembering what the dance was yesterday." (Richard Feynman)

"You're just, a cowboy. I don't know. You're grumpy but deep and also masculine and funnily perturbed by things that aren't concrete and real. It's so fucking cute and funny."

*shrugs*
What I’m doing with my life
"We probably got in the business in the first place because interacting with normal people in a normal workspace was impossible or unattractive to us. Many of us don't know how to behave in public—and don't care to find out . . . What's been lost in all this food-crazy, chef- and restaurant obsessed nonsense is that cooking is hard." (Anthony Bourdain)

"When asked to describe their lives, what's interesting is how few people said, "mess". It's probably the best answer." (some TED talk by an economist)
I’m really good at
Punctuality. It's almost pathological.

Whistling, driving, watching, organization, making sandwiches, parallel parking, admitting mistakes, hand percussion, cleaning stuff you probably wouldn't touch, keeping my balance, the composition part of art, catching things that fall around me, finding the exception to just about anything
The first things people usually notice about me
Accent, walks too fast, sweats too much, heart on sleeve, maybe more candor than some people are used to.

Outsourced answers from friends: wit, warm, bold, compassionate, complicated, genuine, sensitive, caring, affectionate, agreeable (though I think that last one is the mostly on the surface).

Some people think I'm kinda intense. I tend to wonder if they're just underexposed.

I guess the thing I hear most is that I'm sweet. Can't shake it.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My least favorite question of all time must be, "What kind of music do you like?". There's usually plenty I'd rather talk about with someone I don't really know. I only get curious about taste after I begin to know some more basic things.

But I'll give one each, for cooperation's sake: Siddartha, A Fistful of Dollars, HBO's Vice mini docs, Drive By Truckers, eggs over medium (nobody can do this right, damn it) on white toast with mayo and salt
I spend a lot of time thinking about
You might've heard people say their mind feels like a river? Mine feels like a damn huge waterfall, most of the time. That said,

sports (my favorite escapism), art, science, my job, food (literally from one of those families who talks about dinner at breakfast), coworkers, friends, my parents, women, getting the hell outside, beauty, pain, sadness (I have an eye for it, though I'm generally a joyful person), what is the wise thing to do? how can I habituate wise habits? what do I want most? WTF are you people on about?!
You should message me if
I like fit women with long hair, and it's hot if you can leave the house without makeup. I like people who like to do stuff outdoors.

Cannot deal with astrology, so please do not ask me my sign.

I'm a Do Not Disturb sign.
