Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am the prince of an underwater aquatic race of merpeople. I have
come among you, the people of the earth, to look for help, for my
people are being eaten by an evil sea creature called the Kraken
and it is now that I ask awww who the hell am I kidding? It's just
kinda boring to write a self summary.
Okay. A better self summary. I can take it easy when that's called
for, and I can get right down to it, when that is what's called
for. I love books, all things books, book stores, the way a page
feels, in a way that is, I hope, charming. I also love making food
for pals. I am against ignorance. I am against laziness. But it is
not laziness to listen to records all afternoon while laying on the
floor with the tunes loud and good, no, that is a total action of
the heart. I am for progressive politics. I am for pragmatism. I'm
happiest when making things, you can tell when I'm happiest,
because that is when the making of things is happening. I kinda dig
making almost anything. For instance, I made a huge paper airplane
the other day and threw it from my deck. Mostly I make stories
though. And food. For pals. But I already mentioned that. I like
drinking beer, and I like drinking coffee, and I like drinking
juice. I don't particularly enjoy going shopping, but I don't
exactly dislike it either. It's just one of those things you gotta
do from time to time. I don't watch tv, but I would watch tv if you
wanted to watch tv. I'd probably rub your shoulders while we
watched tv if you wanted, but I wouldn't be above begging for a
shoulder rub in return. I would also probably start a tickle war
just so I could flirt with you. I really like to watch movies, at
the movies, and there's always popcorn. There's just something
about movies and popcorn, right? I like dancing. Sometimes it's
pretty great to just dance around and not give a shit about it.
Sometimes it's great to go dancing with as many of the people as
you love as is possible. I like dogs, and Christmas morning with my
family before we open the presents. I liked playing guitar until
five am three years ago for my birthday with my younger brother. I
like ice cream, french fries, I used to like flying kites when I
was a boy and imagine I still would.
Okay. That's good. That's probably good. Anyway, it's the best I
can do for now.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I write letters to people. Sometimes to people I know, sometimes.
people I don't know. I also draw all sorts of cartoons, and write
all sorts of stories about all sorts of things.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Knowing where every bookstore and cafe in the city is and making us
walk towards them totally secretly.

I'm constantly reading. It sounds like a joke, or that I'm just
saying something to impress, but really, I'm constantly reading.
Like if you go to put your jacket away I'll probably take the few
seconds while you're gone and I'll begin reading. Really.

Do you like horror movies? If you do you absolutely must watch VHS.
Blew my mind. If you don't like horror movies because they terrify
you and you stay up all night thinking about it then you should
watch VHS. It's good clean family entertainment. Be forewarned
though, you should watch it alone at midnight in your room with the

Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.

Not giving a fuck
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Uhm... politics, literature, and how to spend more time taking it
easy. I think I've stretched the taking it easy to its limit, but
I'm hoping that quantum physics will find a new and better secret
dimension where taking it easy is a form of work. I will excel at
that kind of work.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Either drinking at a pub, I can't stand the crazy crowds so usually
