— Edward Norton, “Fight Club”
(I've been using that line in introductions since before Fight Club was a thing. Each time truer than the last. That's not a complaint, btw.)
— Rolling Stone, damning me with faint praise
I'm often in the field or in work settings which preclude easy Internet access to services like OKCupid. Please don't take it personally if replies are slow. For [redacted] reasons, I no longer carry a cell phone.
I don't talk about my life a lot with casual Internet acquaintances, and tend to give vague answers when pressed. Please don't take it personally (sensing a trend?) - if & when I do explain, you'll understand why this is.
Besides, the things we have to say about ourselves often just projections of who we want to be, filled in on some mass-produced Scantron (or Internet quiz) with possible answers attached to little bubbles. Each preconception withers the sense of wonder.
