I spend much of my non-sleeping/eating/working for rent money time on activism and organizing (flaming Socialist, but not constantly preachy), reading about said things (and fiction too sometimes), and getting ready for grad school in the fall. I also go drinking and binge watch more TV on Netflix than I want to calculate.
Getting it out of the way, I transplanted out from North Jersey a bit over 5 years ago. My dad's side of the family has been in Portland for four generations though, and my parents met at Reed, so in an abstract kinda way PDX is responsible for me being on this planet. I love this town still, but I'm fairly jaded and irritated about the excessively chipper "Portlandia" shit at this point, and I say that with a pretty good understanding of the problems underneath it. I also like to think I'm living proof that you can enjoy Portland living without biking or camping.
I've got a kind of low filter sense of humor so I tend to like people who don't have too many sacred cows, or much traditional, restrictive morality. The main exception to this is bigoted/misogynist "jokes," and if you dig on that, then fuck right off and save us both some time.
If it's not clear by now, I curse a lot, but usually in a highly good-natured way!
My favorite animal is the platypus. It's just so delightfully improbable.
