Books/Authors:
Lorrie Moore is easily my favorite writer.

I stay religiously on top of media, even media I passionately disagree with. (See: right wing talk radio) That said, I am all over The Atlantic, The Economist, Sunday NY Times and the New Yorker. I read a ton of blogs, sites. It's important for me to be informed.

The six things I could never do without
The people in my life who care enough to push me to be better. There has to be at least six, at any given time.

And coffee. (How am i supposed to be better if i haven't even had a cup of coffee yet?)

I spend a lot of time thinking about
attaining a deeper sense of empathy. Pretty heavy answer for the okc machine, but true.
On a typical Friday night I am
work too late. get on bike. take the long way. wear headphones. hip hop or techno. art opening? catch the end. ok, dinner time. easy to get in at 9pm. go to the nice place, you only live once. buy your friend a dinner. should i go out after? dessert sounds good. there's a good party? she's a great dj. can't believe i'm still awake. was a long week. feel spent. give all i have, then give everyone a hug. raspberry bars are in the cupboard. eat the last one.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I think the hottest attribute in any person is a honest, strong sense of self. Close second is a great smell, natural or enhanced.
You should message me if
You know you, you would like to know me, and you think we would have fun goofing around for a bit.

Bonus points for:
you are an expert, in anything
working up a sweat on the regular
having a fluid sense of gender and/or sexuality
you like techno/house/drum n bass
you think guru + premier was a combination that will never be matched
