My self-summary
I am an animated muppet, a human chimney, a loud-mouthed slut.

I build lighthouses in my basement and then forget about them. I learn half-languages just to play with their glottals. I memorize old poetry so that I can write it backwards over and over again. I doodle and I dabble and I dream. I am a dilettante.

I am no stranger to regret. I act long before I think, and I feel before either. I am prone to involuntary acts of visceral empathy. I am skittish and secretive and flamboyant and posed.

I am a creature of excess, liable to losing long hours and long dollars to fruitless activities that captivate me wholly until I finally collapse. A thing done once and enjoyed is a thing that would be better done ad infinitum. I impulsively want things, and I am bad at denying myself the things that I want.

I am the eternal enemy of sleep and all of its minions. It obliterates consciousness and action and attempts to suck from me one-third of my life. This cannot be tolerated. I refuse to go gently.

I am sought with strange frequency for my late-night soul-searching, strong coffee, and judgmental advice. I throw excellent parties and enjoy the real-time strategy of social coordination. I am apparently the only person among my acquaintance who can string together a cogent sentence, and I am consequently in high demand for my editing prowess. I believe without question that I am loved, though sometimes I cannot account for why.

I will not do anything that I cannot excel at. I consider this one of my biggest flaws.

I love Russian literature, old dictionaries, long walks, longer conversations, silly gadgets, real mysteries, beautiful coincidences, dark comedies, a well-spun narrative, Diet Coke, le mot juste, the feel of ink rolling on paper, the taste of words, the last cigarette of the day, adventures, mountains, satire, and a man named Austin Gandy-- he is a piece of my puzzle that fits with effortless grace.

I always flush the toilet with my right foot. If I ever lose that foot I may just stop flushing.

My favorite part of any activity is the moment where I find the rhythm of it, the moment when I can actually feel new neural pathways sear their way into my brain, and suddenly all the motions and thoughts associated with the given process are executed in a completely natural flow. My favorite part of anything is the angle at which it can be viewed so as to reveal its elegance.

I love elegance. Even if it is for tailors.

When I grow up I want to be a tailor. The kind that writes books. But I am bad at being goal-oriented, and if I squint and turn my head to the left, I am already a grown-up. This is a source of great disappointment to me. As a child I mythologized my future adult self to the point where I believe I may have intimidated myself out of actualizing anything. At any rate, that makes a passing decent excuse.
What I’m doing with my life
Attempting to find the happy middle-ground that allows me to pay the bills that society obliges me to pay to survive as a member of it while still being able to do the things that allow be to remain happy while surviving. I long ago gave up the dream of being paid to do something that I love or even care about. That dream is a unicorn.
I’m really good at
Editing the work of other people, organizing the unorganizable, neologization, mediating interpersonal conflicts, selecting perfect presents, side-kicks, googling the answer to the problem you can't seem to solve on your own, establishing quick rapport with strangers, intuitive etymology, on the spot language learning, baking bread, and crossword puzzles.
The first things people usually notice about me
My eyes, my biting sarcasm, and my whimsy.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Words I haven't written down yet, ways to escape the social contracts I don't feel like I signed up for, etymology, my project du jour, the mechanisms behind things that are not wholly understood, and the always hilarious and often confounding behaviors of the human animal.
On a typical Friday night I am
At work. Thereafter I am either downtown with friends, at home with friends, at home alone writing, at home alone scheming about the latest project I've picked up for the moment, or up to some hijinks-- which it is depends entirely on my proclivities of the day.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Whenever I am sick, I watch the entirety of the BBC's adaptation of Pride and Prejudice. It's better than chicken soup.
I’m looking for
  • Everybody
  • Ages 25–38
  • Near me
  • For new friends
You should message me if
You are fascinating and would like a new friend. I am happily seeing someone and plan to remain that way for some time. Amusingly enough, I am not on this dating site for dates. Mostly I'm here for the stimulating social statistics.
