Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
i'm a story-junkie. on multiple occasions, a stranger has tasted my
mojito and called me an alchemist. i come from a huge family, but
they're all back in Utah so you won't have to deal with 'em. when i
let my mind wander, it always bee-lines for a place where people
fight bears; i don't know why. i try to come correct.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
wandering, reading, pondering, still trying to figure out exactly
what i am and where i should be. trying to avoid becoming a total
cliche. resisting the tamatebako. writing sentence fragments heavy
on the gerunds, apparently.
i recently started working IT support for a bay area pharma
company, which is kindof a sea change after spending most of my
twenties bartending. sometimes it makes me feel real dumb, but i'm
learning lots. having a desk is weird.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
enjoying a moment, telling stories, making people feel comfortable,
finding the exact achewood
strip you just made me think
of in 30 seconds or less, forgetting what i was supposed to be
OH! and making really bizarre, overly complicated metaphors. they
make sense eventually. promise.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
i'm loud, especially when i'm enthused about something; people are
always requesting/suggesting/demanding i remember my "inside
voice." i also have a tendency to (mis)quote things or make
weird/dumb jokes that are chiefly for my own entertainment, so
people are often telling me they have no idea what i'm talking
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

eugh. . . ok, top 9 off the top of my head because (a) i don't feel
like digging through and making comprehensive lists and (2) because
i'm slightly OCD about the number 9 (thanks a lot David Mitchell

i'm pretty much a garbage disposal; i'll eat just about anything.
though i always like it better if it's spicy.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
interesting people, euphemisms, hats, Tom Scharpling, stories, and
MUSIC. you might totally know more about music than i, but i'm
genuinely ALWAYS listening to something, unless i'm specifically
prohibited from doing so.
sorry about the scary capslock.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
parallels, metaphors, stories, humour, my loved ones, language, the
differences in the way each person experiences the world around
them, style, how in the heck Blake Sennet does that thing he's
doing with his pinky finger on whatever song that is.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
schemin' and /or groovin' and /or hollerin' and /or hustlin' and
/or walkin' farther than you're probably wantin' to do and /or
abusin' parentheses and /or abusin' bourbon and /or regrettin'
lettin' bourbon abuse me.
ok you caught me; i was jokin' about the hustlin'.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
i am pretty dang scared of raccoons. if you'd seen some of the
giant-ass suburban raccoons that share the late night streets with
me, this would seem more reasonable than it probably does right

well lady, if you know what chochacho means, you listen to the
bugle, or you think that Papa Burch from HAWP is genius-funny,
we'll probably get along just fine.
