My self-summary
Sort of the point of this thing is to be candid, right? Here are some pros and cons about me from my own heavily biased perspective:

Possible Pros:
Does like the arts
Doesn't like sports
Well-read
Intelligent
Cynical(?)

Definite Cons:
Former dipsomaniac
Sometimes pretentious
Bad at math
Cynical

Still reading? Maybe I was too candid.
What I’m doing with my life
Lately I've been writing, taking a video editing class, and embarking on different projects for my own edification.

When I'm not doing that I work full time in communications at an international environmental nonprofit.
I’m really good at
Finding mistakes. Spelling.
The first things people usually notice about me
This question is a trap for narcissists.

Too many to list in every category but a sampling I guess is appropriate:

I spend a lot of time thinking about
"When I'm lying in my bed I think about life and I think about death and neither one particularly appeals to me."

If you know who said this, I would like to hear from you.
On a typical Friday night I am
At BAM for a show, at a concert, an exhibition, watching a concert DVD (usually Depeche Mode, The Cure, or Morrissey) or at a horror/midnight cult movie with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I shot a man in Reno, just to watch him die.
You should message me if
You're a literary libertine with a taste for the macabre.

Or, if you want to.
