Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Warning, I'm very inactive here at the moment. I might not log in
again for a few months at least, but if you don't mind waiting that
long for an answer, by all means message me anyway.
I'm a bearded and bespectacled man who, among other things, enjoys
staying up late, sleeping in, good food (eating and cooking),
reading a book, thinking, weather changes, music (making and
listening), tea, coffee, beer, snuff (tobacco, not movies) and
interacting with thinking people. Spring is my favourite season.
After that it's a tie between fall and winter. Winter wins if it's
a proper winter, with snow that doesn't melt after one day or ice
that's thick and black.
I have a daughter (primary school age) living with me 50%. Don't
tell me I didn't warn you...
I can be quite shy, so if I looked at your profile but didn't send
you a message, chances are you're so awe-inspiring I lost my nerve.
Give me a few days to regain my composure or send me a message
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
One of my main goals in life is being able to support myself and my
loved ones doing something interesting but with as few consequences
for peoples real lives as possible. I've come to the conclusion
that this would probably have to be something academic, but exactly
what remains to be seen... While I plan for this I teach music,
study a bit, raise my kid and whatnot.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Stating things in a way that make them seem like established facts
when they are really little more than conjecture.
Making up passable food from what I (or someone else) happen to
have at home.
When I have a hangover I can usually sing a Gb in the contra
Making apple pie.
Faking actual skill on a number of musical instruments.
I can sleep through almost any disturbance and almost anywhere. I'm
like Sleeping Beauty (only not as beautiful).
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
...is probably that I'm at least five minutes late.
Also, I sometimes sing a bit more prominently than socially
accepted while walking down the street.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I don't know about you, but I never actually read all the
reeeeally long lists I find under this heading on other profiles.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
If I already have the bare necessities: An interesting book, a
musical instrument capable of producing more than four notes
simultaneously, tea-making utensils (including tea), somewhere to
hide from the world, writing utensils, my glasses.
No, friends and family aren't things.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
