Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm not entirely sure what to put here, so I suppose I'll just go
with some random statements about myself:
--I've got some pretty nerdy interests.
--I love a good beer, and will only drink American macrobrews under
--While I'm a social, political, and economic liberal (in the
American sense of the term), I seem to be kind of a prudish
conservative for the gay community.
--I love to cook, especially for other people.
--I've recently gotten over the shame related to who I am and come
out of the closet as a fan of electropop.
--"I won't dance--don't ask me." Unless I've been drinking.
--I may have to go into rehab soon to get help dealing with my
Also, something you should know. I'm the kind of person who sets a
goal of reading all of the winners of the Hugo for best novel. And
then has second thoughts because maybe I should go with the Nebula

Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Preparing to move out to CA with my partner, where he recently

I'm particularly good at rapidly recalling random facts. Pick a
topic, and I probably have some random, totally useless fact the

at listening, and occasionally good at giving advice. I'm also one

Probably my exceptional nerdiness. And the fact that I'm a bit on
the short side. I'm a little shy when I first meet people, so I'm
not really sure what image I project other than that. Once I get to
know you though, I'll pretty much yack about anything.
Also, I have a large pair of wings instead of arms. Unfortunately,
they're useless for flight, and their only useful purpose is as a
pair of giant feather dusters.

Food: Thai, meatloaf, Italian. If I don't like a food, it's
probably because of the texture.

I am unable to change the radio station if Garrison Keillor is on.
