My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am an IRZJ, which is a category in a personality classification system that I invented, and that only I can diagnose, explain, or interpret. The system is based on a combination of Jungian psychology and Pixar character types. It's complex, comprising 1,024 separate and discrete personality types (4 to the 5th power, since... whatever, I'll explain this later), or roughly one type for every member of my high school class. IRZJs (which is the awesomest category, by the way) tend to get along with OKLWs and ZRFBs, but they're destined to become lethal, Tarantino-esque enemies with YBHCs (or anyone with a sibling of that breed).

People often tell me that I remind them of Shiva, the Hindu god of death and destruction. But I think my friends would say that I'm thoughtful, independent, curious, loyal, & ambitious. Integrity is important to me. I find enjoyment in the 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 west coast. 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.

Ladies, please form an orderly queue.

**OH, PLEASE NOTE: I should mention that, for career-related reasons that are a little too complicated to get into right here, I live in Austin for about 9 months out of the year and San Diego for the other 3. As you can imagine, this situation wreaks a certain havoc on my personal life--and so basically what I'd really like is to meet someone who's OK with this and maybe even thinks it's cool. In the long run, I hope to switch to a 100%-of-the-time-in-Austin situation, but at the moment that's outta my hands. :-/
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm basically an internet-enabled Amelie figure, inasmuch as I'm just always spreading good cheer and whatnot to random people.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Falling down the internet rabbit hole and gathering answers to such vital questions as: What were the exact circumstances of Sid Vicious and Nancy Spungeon's deaths (the details are murky, but I've read their actual death certificates); Where is the comedian Carrot Top from? (Florida), and What's his deal anyway? (dunno); Is it possible to listen to a recording of Harry Houdini's voice? (yes), and What does it sound like? (surprisingly high-pitched); and What caused the famous Tunguska Event of 1908? (most likely a sizable meteorite, or possibly a comet, although I'm partial to theories involving extraterrestrials).

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 am mentioned by name in the DSM-V.

The novel The Shining was based on a vacation I took with my family as a child.

I am still on the Gregorian calendar.
