I grew up in the Twin Cities, left for college, and moved back
after going to school and living in New Orleans. I'm INFJ but I
think I'm right on the cusp between introvert and extrovert. When
it comes right down to it I'm an extremely friendly person who will
probably like you. I'm a fan of humanity in all of their variety
and absurdity and prefer to give people the benefit of the doubt. I
also love other animals. I have cat roommates.
What I’m doing with my life
I've spent a lot of time in the past couple of years trying to get
my classical piano chops back. There is nothing more satisfying
than learning music that I thought was beyond my ability. During
the Summer I love to be outside as much as possible. I really love
my neighborhood. I need to be physically active in my life one way
or the other. My latest hobby has been home improvement. Now that
we're finally in the future, most things can be DIY with the right
tools and the interwebs...
I’m really good at
In some particular order:
details, cooking with a recipe, punctuality, affection,
complimenting, communicating, evaluating, navigating, ruminating,
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Sushi, Thai, Italian, Vietnamese, Mexican.
NPR, Radiolab, Mythbusters, Mr. Show, Little Britain, Louie, Lost, Mad Men, The Wire, Treme, Deadwood, Breaking Bad.
I got rid of cable and I feel liberated.
Some of my favorite movies are A Serious Man, Mary and Max, Sexy Beast, Contact, Donnie Darko, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, Ghostbusters
Books: House of Leaves, The Sound of Building Coffins, Confederacy of Dunces, The Things They Carried, Monkey Mind, Siddhartha, Atmospheric Disturbances.
Music: 60-70's soul, funk, and fusion. Mahavishnu, Miles and MMW. Classical - especially the Russians. Lots and lotsa stuff. Lately I've been listening to Buke and Gase.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Maybe... What's going to happen next. The progression of life. I
don't know that I believe in any type of guiding force, but I
appreciate the seemingly random acausal events that combine to have
great significance in our lives. The thousands of little decisions
that we've made that have lead us up to THIS moment and the
thousands of little moments that could have led us down a different
path. The fact that our entire lives pass in the cosmic blink of an
eye. But I would bet most of my thinking is taken up by what's
required for daily human routine. So nothing so profound
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Well, I don't want to get too personal but you should know that I have six big toes on my right hand (in place of fingers). Don't worry it's barely noticeable... I'll wear my specially made mittens when we're on a date...
You should message me if
You are genuine; you don't take yourself too seriously (but
seriously enough); you're open minded; you value kindness and
compassion. You like to be ridiculous and silly. Most likely I'll
be messaging you though; that seems to be the dynamic. Wasn't that
a great message I sent you?
