Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a journalist
, at least for now. But the
blogosphere seems to have come to a consensus that we're going the
way of the Dodo, so I'm trying to get all the journalisting in that
I can journalist until there's no journalisting left to do. Um,
what else? I can tell you why Miller Lite is a crappy beer
, beyond, ya know, the
obvious. Along with its bottom-feeding, domestic lager-y
counterparts. I'm definitely a beer geek, which I hope can be
differentiated from a beer snob. I like good food
and can cook
a little if Alton Brown
tells me how. I
also enjoy abruptly cutting off in mid .......
I am curious, clothed, and curmudgeonly
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Examining my purpose in the cosmos. And eating Chee-Tos.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
(allegedly), figuring out random stuff to do, not texting my
friends, which drives them crazy, getting outside
, debating, golf
(relatively speaking, to most
idiots who play), finding good places to eat/drink, and I'm not bad
at cooking, though I definitely wouldn't go with "really good."
Wouldn't want to raise expectations too much.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
You should probably ask these mysterious "people" about that.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I'm notoriously poor at creating time to read books, which probably
makes me a truly bad person.
Rear Window, Eternal Sunshine, Double Indemnity, Godfather, Fight
Club, Ocean's Eleven, North By Northwest, To Have and Have Not, The
Big Sleep, Pulp Fiction, Big Lebowski, Fargo, Fletch, Pi, 39 Steps,
Magnolia, Office Space, etc., etc., etc.
Food: Isn't this the type of question they ask you in third grade,
and everybody draws a slice of pepperoni pizza on a piece of
colored construction paper? Wait ... you got any construction
paper? I guess my answer is I'll try anything once. And then I'll
probably try it one more time. Don't like ketchup or mayo. Pickles
are growing on me.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Computer, car (at least, not here), functioning lungs,
photosynthesis, ozone layer, tectonic plates.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What to write in this spot.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Lately, I've been joining packs of other beer geeks at The Fred Bar
(if you don't know where this is and you have any interest in beer,
you must go ... but you have to ring a buzzer to get in; I'm not
making that up). Oh, or the Brickstore. It's my favorite place on
Earth. Other than my comfortable bed. OK, maybe even including my
comfortable bed. Yes, good beer is that good. Miller Lite isn't
worth even opening my eyes.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
... if ... well, why wouldn't you? I mean, honestly. I've got an
octopus on my head. When are you gonna see that again? Once in a
lifetime, I tell ya. If you don't, you'll regret it. Maybe not
today. Maybe not tomorrow. But one day soon, and for the rest of
your life. Yes, I sometimes quote Bogey. I'm unashamed.
