My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Occasional insomniac, home cook and soon-to-be amateur furniture and cabinet maker of dickensian humors searching for company in tablesetting, beer running, rubbish making, movie watching, wordwrighting, and like unscheduled shenanigans without supervision or such oversight.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a writer. Mainly work for tech companies, but I've a budding sideline as a freelance editor and have started work on my first novel. I'm two or three tools away from building a workshop and one workshop away from making furniture, using all hand tools.

Also, I just finished my first editorial gig. Release due for February. Feel good about getting my name on a copyright page, even if it's as a footnote in the list of editors.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Trivia, chess, cooking, building things, figuring out tech things, languages, history.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My specs. Maybe my goofy sense of humor and penchant for wordplay. What struck you?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
- Stories worth telling, told by others, written down or conjured from my own imagination.

- A machine to tinker. Something I can take apart, hack and improve upon till it does just what I need it to, until I want to experiment with something else.

- A sense of dionysiac in the day-to-day.

- Things to build and the tools to build them, ranging from a new set of furniture designed and crafted myself to steampunk knicknacks to air-purification aquaponics to goofy wall art.

- Food to cook, ranging from the things I know to the bizarre and the whyn't just to say I did.

- An imperfect world, without eidos or apparent meaning, ensuring thus that there are always fields to explore and understand, aspects to improve, and more otherwise still to be done.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How can I improve upon my praline recipe. The steps I would need to take to build myself a frame saw, a kerfing plane, a shooting board and what things I could accomplish once I reach that point. How I might dump cloud services in favor of the personal cloud, and whether I would really want to in the end. How to make it in American letters post postmodern.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Typical Fridays are against my religion.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Sometimes I wonder if this site is just an elaborate scam to bolster page loads and click metrics for advertisers. Then I try to think up experiments that would prove it the case. So far, the only one that comes to mind is an experiment that would prove it not the case -- for which there's a decided lack of interest with respect to the necessary participants.
