Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My personality type is "Meyers-Briggs is astrology for people who
think they're too smart for astrology."
I can ride my bike with no handlebars.
It's the contradictions that make life interesting.
I'm in an open relationship with Kelsinite
I'm pretty well satisfied by my current relationship, so ideally
I'd like to meet people I get along with well, and if something
develops from that then it's all the more fun!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Going to school for Chemistry. Working in a Biomaterials lab.
Playing Dreamcast games and drinking beers.
I rode my bike from Eugene to Corvallis, which was one of my summer
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Trying out new things in the kitchen and having them turn out yummy
(I made for-realsies mac and cheese starting with a roux).
Painting small figures that represent giant robots.
Playing Rock Band.
Telling silly lies.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My beard. It's huge, red, and glorious.
My smile. It's not a perfect smile, but it is frequent and genuine.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I really enjoy well-crafted fiction of any variety. One thing that
is a huge turn-off is when a person only enjoys "true stories." I
think there is great value in creating a story, rather than only
telling something that actually happened.
I've read a *lot* of SF. I love harder stuff like Ben Bova, Greg
Bear, Larry Niven (even if he is a right wing nutjob), as well as
the classics like Aasimov. Ursula K. LeGuin has a special place in
my heart. Don't get me started on Heinlein, he's only ever written
two good books. I also enjoy some fantasy, A Song of Ice and Fire,
Lord of the Rings, etc. I can be pedantic at times about the
differences between fantasy and science fiction.
I also enjoy a lot of 20th-century literature like Kurt Vonnegut
Jr., Tom Robbins, and Joseph Heller.
Catch 22 is my favorite novel of all time.
As far as movies go, I grew up in the '80s and '90s, so I have a
penchant for bad action movies with lots of one liners and
explosions. Alien, Aliens, and Total Recall are probably my
favorite movies. I also have a huge thing for the Coen Brothers
though. I've enjoyed every one of their movies, from The Big
Lebowski to Barton Fink. Their meticulous attention to detail in
film-making is amazing.
Sherlock, Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, Parks and Recreation, It's
Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Adventure Time
Amanda Palmer, Edward Sharpe, Amon Amarth, Jurassic 5,
Blackalicious, At the Gates, Murder by Death, Muse, Wolfmother, and
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My cast iron skillet.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The kinetics of bioconjugation reactions.
How to cook delicious breakfast foods.
Why people seem to get incredibly offended whenever their
white/male/hetero privilege is simply shown to exist, let alone how
they flip their fucking shit when it gets challenged.
Why facebook seems to think I'm a weightlifter, despite
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Fridays are generally pretty boring for me. I get pretty tuckered
out after a week of work and school, so it's generally a night in
playing video games or watching Netflix.
While it would be nice to have someone to share that kind of stuff
with, too, Saturdays are when the magic happens. I love going out
to thrift shops, playing a game of disc golf, floating down the
river with a growler full of something light and tasty, sneaking
candy into a matinee at the Carmike, going out for beers at a dive
bar or karaoke at the Peacock. I don't have any set routine, and
don't want one, but I do like to have some fun.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I was a nuclear power plant operator (I got better).
I was the drummer in a garage band in Portland.
I wrote a semi-autobiographical short story that featured myself
masturbating, and it was published by a webzine.
One of these three statements is a lie. Tell me which one :D
