My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Retired student; fledgling grown-up job doer; Del Boca Vista runner; and veteran beer drinker and sports-I-can’t-play watcher. Aspiring competent outdoorsman, prolific typer of words, and slightly-better-than-you’d-think dancer. Jealous dog non-owner, master of rudimentary cooking, and evangelical Springsteen disciple.

I grew up in Portland and had a brief - albeit fantastic - stint in Idaho for college. Most of my time in Idaho was spent spreading the gospel of the Rose City, so Portland is where I want to be. That said, the Sawtooth Mountains are breathtaking, and weekends with college friends in and outside Boise are tough to top.

Ability to reach things on high shelves comes standard. Modest beard comes optional, but let's not lose our heads.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Writing. It's a job I love like a hobby and a hobby I treat like a job. But I'm not a writer.

Co-hosting a podcast. What was that? Nah, you’ve probably never heard of it.

Self-consciously (and maybe hypocritically) judging others' misuse of commas.

Managing expectations. This should probably be listed first. Under-promising and over-delivering will get you places in life.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
1) Hatching a plan
2) Winning over your dog
3) "How Oregon Are You?" contests
4) Whistling
5) Wedding guesting
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My fabulously sculpted calf muscles.

Yep, that’s it.

Alright, that’s probably not it.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Homage to Catalonia; Cry, the Beloved Country; Feast of the Goat; Grapes of Wrath; Bowerman; Long Walk to Freedom; Inverting the Pyramid.

Movies: Zoolander, The Godfather, Good Night & Good Luck, Anchorman, Cool Runnings, Shawshank Redemption, Forrest Gump.

Shows: Lost, The West Wing, Seinfeld, Rachel Maddow, Law & Order. If you couldn’t tell by how dated my favorite shows are, TV isn’t a priority. Still, if there’s something I’m missing, let me know.

Music: Bruce Springsteen, Josh Ritter, Ray Brown, Lake Street Dive, Turnpike Troubadours, Johnny Cash, Gene Harris, Ryan Adams, Charlie Parker, Oscar Peterson, Tom Petty, Micky and The Motorcars, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Old Crow Medicine Show, Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Boyz II Men (wait, what?).

Food: Virtually everything. Favorite Ethnic Genre: Indian. Favorite Domestic Genre: Wings. Favorite Portland Restaurant: Woodsman Tavern. Favorite Lunch Spot: Tom’s 1st Street Bento (apologies to Cubo de Cuba). Favorite Food Cart: 808 Grinds.

Also, is it inappropriate to mention whiskey in this section? Whatever, whiskey.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I have a better idea. How about a random Top-6 list?

Top Six Traits of Native Oregonians You Don’t Find in Newcomers!
1) Aggressive helpfulness
2) Prudent, weather-appropriate fashion sense
3) We drive cars! (granted, somewhat cautiously)
4) We think MAX is great (and get prickly when people say otherwise)
5) Microbrews over PBR, though we appreciate the time and place for the latter, too
6) We freaking love tap water (occasional health hazard notwithstanding)

Also, and I can’t stress this enough, we like new Oregonians quite a bit. In fact, we’re usually unnervingly eager to show them around (see #1).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
1) Writing about the Timbers
2) Where I should go for the weekend
3) Which restaurant I want to try next
4) Work, I suppose
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I'm a big fan of Saturdays, so usually something fairly low key. Or, you know, maybe not. Basically, I'm up for anything.

The wheels have kind of fallen off the wagon in this section. Let's move on, shall we?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My Paul Ryan-adjusted marathon time is 1 hour, 55 minutes, 41 seconds. I'm proudest of my fictitious accomplishments.

Oh, and I might have been in a boy band in college. Fictitious? You be the judge.

After initially being a non-believer, I've converted to emojism. 🙏
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're an intelligent, independent, and optimistic person. I don't have too many mandatory traits, but these three are up there.

If you want to meet up for a drink or cup of coffee sometime. If I’m interested, I’ll probably look to meet up in relatively short order. I don’t doubt you’d make a lovely pen pal, but I’m not really here to write long email chains with strangers.

Also, it doesn't hurt if you like Cool Runnings and/or Bruce Springsteen.
