Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
This is more a space to bloviate endlessly, than an actually
well-thought-out statement of self, right?
I count my circuitous, labyrinthine, baroque, tortured, redundant
sentence constructions (really, by extension thoughts) among
(amongst?) my strengths, and flaws.
intj for those keeping score at home.
I've been told I think too much, but seriously, who of those who
think too much need to be told this. I already knew, trust
In sum, I am a ponderous, ponderously tall fella.
Also, very strongly interested in thru-hiking or section hiking
part of the pacific crest trail, OR in people who want to sign up
for a class or seminar as friends (improv olympic, community
classes, racquetball), and enjoy a beer together after class.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm doing what any sensible twenty (hyphenate) something does in
the doldrums of the 2000's - making do. It would surprise me if I
didn't ultimately end up in education, despite continued
exhortations from teachers employed and retired to avoid that
minefield. I just can't think of another place where I can subject
a captive audience to my slipshod, slapdash voices.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Reading and arithmetic. Two out of three ain't bad. Not too bad
with accents although I usually need a drink or two for that. And I
can sing, juggle, dance (not really), answer trivia, and generate
music, and analyze (read: bullshit that I believe) the arts.
When I go to trivia night, I complain that it isn't nearly academic
enough, and bemoan the paucity of sciences, math, history, and
literature. Not that I'd do much better, mind you. I'd just enjoy
losing more (okay, I WOULD do much better).
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My height and later, how I surprise them. I like to think I ask
well thought questions too. People tell me I dress like a
professor, which I don't really cultivate, but don't avoid either.
(Most lately it was that I looked as though David Lynch was
teaching critical theory. Thanks for the great haircut Ben!)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I don't know why, but this is the least important section to me in
looking at people. As such, I won't fill it out myself. I don't
find that the things one has been exposed to, to be particularly
illumining in many cases. Maybe I just don't like long lists of
bands I've never heard of.
As a discerning person, I probably like much the same things as
you, fellow lady of discernment.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Really and truthfully, I need white noise while I sleep, good
friends in moderation while I wake, well made cocktails in the
evening (or failing that, craft beer or neat whiskey), a plan for
the day, possibilities for the near future, and good, steady
sources of information to digest. And games (e.g. crosswords)
scattered amidst and within the previous activities.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Great band names that I will never use.
Actually, I actively try not to think as much. This is somewhat
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Propping up middle american dictatorships.
Lasing, not to be confused with lazing about (all right, I don't
have any lasers)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm reaaaaaaaaaaalllllyy near sighted. But I wear contacts most of
Ok, and I put people on my favorites list with the intent of
messaging them, and then grow so tired of seeing them on the
'online now' portion of my profile, that I decide to message them
with something flippant and quick, just to get them off that list.
This is not the best method for procuring dates.
But then, I don't take this site that seriously. Do you?
I would go four part christmas caroling anytime of year.
