My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I...

am an unabashed, opinionated, total music nerd. It's what I've spent the majority of my free time & money on, and how I've connected with most of my friends (and previous girlfriends)...

am a voracious reader and go to the library once a week to pick up the next hold that's arrived...

used to be a college radio dj (WXYC); currently the calendar editor for threeimaginarygirls.com...

don't ever want to work in politics, but I read, discuss, and analyze the issues and candidates constantly (local, national, international). I love a good debate & believe in a liberal, progressive platform...

have got a great sense of humor (dark), and dry sarcasm does pass my lips every so often (yeah, a bit of a smart-ass)...

love good conversations, especially over whiskey...or coffee... or beer... or my homemade blackberry brandy...

test out as an INTJ/INTP and have no cause to argue the results...

am definitely a romantic at heart...

like to try new recipes, excel at quite a few dishes, keep an online recipe box on epicurious.com (ask nicely & I might share), and can generally be pretty useful around the kitchen (or grill, in the summer)...

keep (restaurant) kosher, so i can be as finicky as a vegetarian, but also occasionally crave a burger from red mill...

am always up for bowling (r.i.p. Sunset), pinball, tennis, bike rides, exploring the city, drinking, or anything music-related...

enjoy exploring the city, road-tripping around the area, and want to travel more...

make an exceptional old fashioned (yay bourbon!) & enjoy messing around with recipes for new cocktails...

am generally a happy person & meeting someone new makes things all the better...

still don't know what i want to do with my life, but I'm enjoying trying to figure it out.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
a biotech job that pays the bills (and my small part in helping people fight cancer), reading a lot, hanging out with friends, going to shows, doting on the cats, co-hosting bar trivia at Old Pequliar every other month, collecting comic books & co-hosting The Backroom Comics podcast, editing the TIG music calendar, drinking at Moon Temple, purchasing more small-batch bourbon, cooking up a tasty meal (and grilling as much as the weather will allow), checking out various happy hours around town, going to the Wallingford or Ballard Farmers Markets, trying new beer at Bottleworks/Burgundian, hanging out with my awesome little niece

I like playing tennis in the summer, and have yet to find a winter activity equally enjoyable and as healthy

Keeping the beard trimmed also seems to take up a bit of time each week ;)

I despise karaoke.

Naps are really awesome.

* spent a hot day smoking my first brisket
* Bought tickets for four plays (two Shakespeare, one Sondheim, one Marx Brothers) in Ashland in September
* Signed up for a Summer tennis league
* Recovering from spinal surgery to remove a tumor. I'm doing fine now but it makes for a fun story :)
* Took a business trip to San Diego & wrapped in a weekend in San Francisco; reminded me how much I love visiting the latter & probably one of the areas I'd enjoy living in if I couldn't be here
* Figuring out weekend getaways
* Considering Summer recipes
* Enjoying the 3 quarts of blackberry brandy and 1.5 quarts of peach brandy I canned back in August
* Messing around with my Fuji X100A+S
* Urban hiking, wild blackberry picking, & reading in parks along the way
*Trying to obtain tickets to The Moth StorySLAM
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
putting together an amazing mix cd or just recommending a new band, 90's trivial pursuit, bowling, listening (so I've been told), making blueberry-chocolate chip pancakes, being a gentleman... and other private things which would be ungentlemanly to list here ;)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm guessing the beard, but what say you?

My friends want me to point out that I like stuff, and also things.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

d) I love all kinds of food, though sushi is near the top... as is my local taco truck. Some cuisine, like French, is a little more difficult with my self-imposed restrictions, but an excellent coq au vin is a wonderful thing.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
my cats, my cd collection (3000+), a high-speed internet connection, something to read, sushi, tivo
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
music, sex, politics, religion... the usual

proper grammar & spelling. Seriously. It pains me to have to look at anything poorly written. I've harangued co-workers over incorrectly changing "an" to "a" on company documents, improper apostrophes, and the value of the serial comma... vampire weekend is very wrong :P

they're/their/there (I own a t-shirt with this theme)

it's/its, you're/your, and who's/whose

You don't have to know the Chicago Manual of Style by heart (though that would definitely set *my* heart aflutter); it's about not being lazy.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
going out to check out a band, hanging out with friends (trying a new restaurant, dive bars, pinball, at a good cocktail bar), sketch comedy show, theater; whatever strikes my mood

This also includes occasionally staying at home, sipping on a hot toddy, and enjoying a good book

You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're intrigued by any of the preceding, but want to know more

You want to join me for shows (especially indie rock). That would be awesome, as few things are more boring than standing by myself between bands

You appreciate the quiet time in-between the adventures

You are interested in a mini road trip around the region, especially day trips

You want a partner in your troublemaking endeavors

You want to snuggle on the couch with blackberry brandy hot toddies and a few good books, maybe some Netflix

You feel like it :)

You also eventually want to delete this profile because you've found someone (on this site or not) who made this whole endeavor worthwhile
