My self-summary
I am an INFJ Sagittarius. My aura is violet. I am fucking delightful.

I once played the angriest man in 12 Angry Men.

I am originally from Texas and have been in NYC for the last 13 years. I am not stereotypically Texan. I don't own a gun, but grew up with them. I've never ridden a horse because I'm allergic and I don't think you should ride your friends. I am a hard core leftist. I never once voted for George W. Bush. However, my high school experience was pretty much exactly like 'Friday Night Lights.'

I like nothing more than a good parenthetical statement.
What I’m doing with my life
I run one of the homeless outreach programs for City of New York. My days are a delightful mix of paperwork and crazy.

My job is wonderful, but pretty high stress (There's a bit of a homelessness problem in NYC. I don't know if you've heard.). Because of this, I have tried and am trying to build a peaceful, meaningful life for myself. And thus, I have a strict no drama, solid honesty, mutual respect policy. I have no capacity for fakery.
I’m really good at
Spelling. Laundry. Driving. Musical things. Naming pets. Turning any party into a dance party. Using iPhone iconography to tell a story. The Robot. Continually hatching a plan for the perfect crime. Piecing things together (ie. Stories or IKEA furniture).
The first things people usually notice about me
The fact that I have likely just said something strange, inappropriate, or profound. I am often quoted. I am known to verb a noun. Or noun a verb.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Salman Rushdie, Jonathan Safran Foer, Alice Munro, Gabriel Garcia Marquez (I recently re-read '100 Years of Solitude.' It was so beautiful I almost died.), Ann Patchett, Anton Chekov, Maya Angelou, Kurt Vonnegut, stuff about social issues and politics. I'm in two bookclubs--one that reads and one that drinks.

TV: The Wire, Friday Night Lights, The Newsroom, The West Wing, the fake news. HGTv. Probably any show that will be awesome and then taken off the air after a season. Occasional sports (Mainly college football. Hook 'em Horns.)

Movies: Drop Dead Gorgeous; Angels in America; all of the Christopher Guest movies; Groundhog Day; To Kill a Mockingbird; most movie musicals; all Will Ferrell movies; almost anything with superheroes. I do not like scary movies as I do not like to be scared; do not go for the gratuitously violent.

Music: I really do listen to everything. My iPod (it's a real iPod) ranges from the ridiculous to the sublime. I have been known to enjoy catchy hold music. I am deeply committed to the survival of the mixtape. I will teach you to like country music.

Food: I have allergies, so my food tastes are limited and complicated. But I'm good a navigating a menu.
The six things I could never do without
Fancy pens. Good and meaningful work. Non-digital books. Tacos. Naps. Whimsy.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Pigeons. Sweaters. Social worker stuff. Politics. All of the times on cruise ships when people go missing and all they leave behind is a lonely pair of shoes.
On a typical Friday night I am
Generally exhausted, so I just go home. This week, I'm planning a trip to Ikea (This could apply to almost any Friday, as I am almost always planning a trip to Ikea.).
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I suffer from a life-long fear of the Hulk.
