Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I've got a pretty full plate right now, but I'm still down to meet
new people when time permits.
I reflexively hit Command-Z in real life.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Daytime: web application designer/developer/"user experience guru."
Nighttime: musician/storyteller. All the time: oversharer.
I'm not sure how I can best reconcile these, but I'm imagining some
sort of Laurie Anderson-esque multimedia extravaganza.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Dangerously tasty cocktails.
CSS. (Sass, really.)
Elaborate hangover breakfasts. (see below)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
From the front: wonderfully floppy hair.
From the back: DAT ASS.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
My Cat from Hell.
I'm way behind in my reading; I read something like 20 thousand
words a day in blog format but my half-finished books have piled up
so much that I'm not letting myself buy anymore until i get through
Of the books I have read, A Pattern Language is probably the most
influential in my life; when I moved to New York it was the only
one I brought with me.
I don't watch a lot of tv or movies; I pretty much only watch stuff
with other people. After all, I've got so much reading to catch up
Troll 2 is a terrible movie but I've watched and analyzed it more
than any other. There's a really great hybrid of The Shining &
The Stuff lurking inside that's calling out for a remake.
I mostly watch Adventure Time and reality-style gameshows like
RuPaul's Drag Race & Top Chef. (Sweet Genius sits right at the
intersection of these.)
I listen to a lot of podcasts, but the only one I absolutely can't
miss is Roderick on the Line.
I have a complicated relationship with Phil Collins. Like "oh, he's
so lame, except for these nine records I love."
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Silly question. How about:
Six people I wish were my cool uncle
Paul F. Tompkins
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Scammers intentionally use "scammer grammar" to weed out all but
the most credulous. Is this the same reason why creeps wear
How a cis white dude in a boys-club industry could be smashin'
patriarchy. Is there an antonym for "brogrammer?"
Whether I'm ready for SuperTrain.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Karaoke. Dancing, provided its dark enough. (I used to be more
self-conscious about this until I realized everyone else was
dancing like muppets too.)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Huevos Rancheros (rev 1.1)
Sauté half a red onion in butter in a large pan. When those are
clear, add half a diced and seeded poblano pepper. When the onions
are brown, add a diced plum tomato. Push those over to one side of
the pan and fill the other side with canned black beans (about half
a can) with 2 cloves of chopped garlic mixed in. In another pan,
toast a corn tortilla, and when that's crispy, use that pan to fry
two eggs over-easy.
Assemble on the plate with the beans at the bottom, then the
tortilla, then eggs, then sofrito, with a dollop of mexican crema
on top. Serve with sliced avocado on the side.
(I've been trying out variations with assorted animal fats instead
of butter, e.g. bacon grease, schmaltz etc. but it seems kind of
like I'm gilding the lily.)
