However, I do take the caramelization of onions quite seriously.
My religiopolitical philosophy is sustainable hedonism.
I frequently whistle to myself, sometimes without being aware of it (which got me dirty looks in Japan)
I used to live inside of an industrial kitchen and can whip up a feast for 127 like it ain't no thing. This led me to becoming obsessed with food politics, nutrition, land use, and city planning.
I wanted to be a SCIENTIST when I grew up, so I studied brains and neurons and programming. After graduating I had a brief internship under a meglomaniacal professor and fell off the bandwagon.
Yoga keeps me sane. Becoming a certified teacher is on my to do list for the intermediate term future.
While I appreciate dogs, I love cats.
I'm quite awkward, except for when I'm totally smooth.
I don't get tired of playing Bach on the piano
If I strike it rich, I am totally going to have a monstrous pipe organ installed in my house. Oh how my neighbors will love me.
I used to be a devout reader. Hope to be one again soon, when not so behind on sleep.
I can do Tuvan throat singing.
Tending plants brings me comfort
The best date I ever went on involved poking a dead giant squid with a stick.
I carry around googly eyes in my pocket to put on things I feel need them. Or people. They make fabulous third eyes.
I love playing outside until I am covered in dirt. I don't backpack as much as I would like these days. Rolling down sand dunes at Montaña de Oro scratches the itch though.
I am actively collecting silly hats and sunglasses.
I have a scar on my knee that is nearly a perfect swoosh. It tells me to "just do it" whenever I am debating engaging in something foolish and exciting
I am very subjective in what I find attractive:
When I see a girl reading a book in public, she immediately becomes twice as attractive.
When a girl is riding a bicycle, she becomes anywhere from three to five times as attractive.
If I see a girl successfully reading a book while riding a bicycle, I may just have to chase her down and propose.
While in principle I am definitely interested in meeting people from this site, I keep myself busy and am rather picky, so I feel the need to admit I'm mostly here to satisfy voyeuristic urges and for idle flirtation.
I am mischievous, thoughtful, and compassionate
