My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Retired student; fledgling grown-up job doer; and veteran runner, 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 naturally this is where I want to be. That said, the Sawtooth Mountains are breathtaking, and weekends with college friends in Boise are tough to top.

Alright, since everybody talks about traveling here, I’ll note that favorites include Cape Town, South Africa; Ambergris Caye, Belize; and Salzburg, Austria. Inquire within for more details.

Ability to reach things on high shelves comes standard. Beard is optional.
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.

Judging others' misuse of commas to make myself feel better about my comma habit.

Managing expectations. This should probably be listed first.
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; Bowerman; Lots of nonfiction. Currently re-reading Grapes of Wrath (since I probably Cliff's Notes'd it in high school). I definitely didn't get it back in the day.

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, Johnny Cash, Gene Harris, Ryan Adams, Charlie Parker, Oscar Peterson, Tom Petty, 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: Big Ass Sandwiches. Also, is it inappropriate to mention whiskey in this section? Okay, 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 really 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.

One time at a trivia night the trivia jockey said, as an answer to a question, that the Reconquista was a war between Spain and Portugal. I successfully challenged it not by reference to any authoritative source, but by citing a Seinfeld episode.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're an intelligent, independent, optimistic person. I don't have too many mandatory traits, but these three are up there.

Also, it doesn't hurt if you like Cool Runnings, Bruce Springsteen, and/or can tell me which Seinfeld scene I cited to sort out the trivia snafu.
