My self-summary
So I think it was Winston Churchill who said that internet profiles are pure folly--I forget the exact quote--but imma give it a shot anyway. I think my friends would say that I'm: thoughtful, independent, curious, loyal, & ambitious. Integrity is important to me. I find enjoyment in little things. Plus I've never had a cavity. Like ever. One time I exchanged "What's up?" nods with David Bowie. That is true. Also, I told David Lynch about a weird dream I had--this is also true--whereupon he told me how he came up with the ending to Mulholland Drive.

In college, I was a White House intern, but then I put like a 10-year moratorium on talking about it because of, you know, Monica Lewinsky. Poor girl. Anyway, I've heard every joke, so shut up.

Oh: I have an irrational fear of jackalopes, which I can trace psychoanalytically to a particular semi-traumatic moment at a highway rest stop in Utah. You should probably know about that in advance.

I'm originally from the east coast, but I went to grad school on the w.c. I've moved back and forth a few times. Am kinda nerdy; into art & literature, movies, outdoorsy things, random adventures, going out, staying in, sports (esp. hockey (ice), football, tennis...). I love dogs. And I think nose rings are kinda hot--on humans, that is--although I am powerless to explain why.

I think that more or less covers it. Please form an orderly queue.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm catching my breath since reaching a milestone in my job, and focusing on the basics: my health and my friends. As you can tell from my self-summary, I'm kind of a private person. But I'll be happy to tell you more if you ask.
I’m really good at
My parallel parking skills are nigh on supernatural. I'm also good at:

-Making up fake band names
-getting people to nod in agreement about how they like bands that don't exist

And I can do, like, two card tricks.
The first things people usually notice about me
Lacking direct access to other people's subjectivities, I would have no way of knowing that, now would I?

The six things I could never do without
heroin, and five things I can sell to get more heroin
I spend a lot of time thinking about
-the Corey Haim episode of E! True Hollywood Story, in which Haim shows up for the E!:THS interview itself high and incoherent

-whether I'm standing up straight enough

-whether it's possible to drive oneself mentally insane by thinking recursively about things like the nature of one's own thought or, say, the feasibility of self-inflicted madness

--whether I'm somehow standing up TOO straight
On a typical Friday night I am
sorting over the pieces of my shattered psyche. Or maybe watching a movie.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
In the checkout line, I hedge against the possibility of an incompetent grocery bagger by placing my items on the conveyor belt roughly in order from sturdiest to least sturdy -- thereby reducing the chances that the delicate stuff will get crushed by the heavier stuff.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 30–40
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For new friends, long-term dating
You should message me if
the spirit moves you (by which I don't mean specifically the Holy Spirit per se, inasmuch as, in all honesty, if you believe in that then we're probably getting off on the wrong foot. Instead, I just mean spirit in the broad sense of, like, motivational forces operating beyond one's own comprehension. You know.)
