My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I try to try everything three times before I decide whether or not I like it. even if I don't like it in the end, I get a good idea of why people appreciate it. except for aspic. I don't understand aspic, at all.

I contain multitudes; I'm not terribly sorry that most of those multitudes are variations on the theme of cranky, perverted dwarf.

I like to sleep late, I'm a little clumsy, and I'm a bit of a crybaby.

(that's a reference)

(but I do tear up at the weirdest things)

(and by "tear up" I might mean ugly cry)

just got out of the longest relationship of my life and am looking to keep things fairly low-key atm

keywords: nerdy; queer; enby/non-binary (they/them pronouns please); poly/solo poly/open
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am working towards being the adult that I need when I say that I need an adult. I say this, of course, at 4pm on a Monday while wearing Spongebob pajama pants, so note that I didn't say I was working hard, or doing a good job of it.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
food (giving, receiving); banter (giving, receiving, watching); ridiculous hats and other headgear (receiving, wearing)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
unselfconsciously fat, cute, sweaty, and/or food-stained on a good day; self-consciously so on a bad day; way cuter than my already pretty cute photos would indicate every day; bartender/clergyface (i.e. "tell me your life story and/or problems"-face)

(people tell me I have pretty lips and eyelashes)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
nb: we don't have to have all of these things in common, or even most of these things. I like what I like, but it's just stuff, it's not the hill I'll die on. I want to learn about new things from you, and I like it when you're open to learning about new things from me. it would probably help if you eat as indiscriminately as I eat and don't automatically count a book out if it's got an elf or a spaceship or a space elf on the cover, or a movie or TV show if it's animated or got subtitles, but I guarantee you that almost everything else can be negotiated.

books: Iain M. Banks; Jack Vance; Jo Walton; Ursula K. LeGuin; Lois McMaster Bujold; Catherynne M Valente; Kim Newman; my Goodreads (recently purged for 2015); I recently finished my first-ever reads of The Hobbit and The Wind in the Willows, both of which were unqualified joys. I am reading Valente's Oz-like The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland In A Ship Of Her Own Making, which I first read years ago when she serialized it on LJ and is still pretty great. I think I need to read the Oz books now, though. (My primary education is sorely lacking.)

comics: Love and Rockets; King City; Multiple Warheads; Finder; Stray Bullets; Saga; Shutter; Ultimate Spider-Man (both Peter & Miles); the works of Jim Woodring; Percy Gloom; Transformers vs. G.I. Joe (no, really: I don't care for either of those things on their own, but this is a joyful psychedelic newsprint crayon scrawl Saturday morning cartoon of a book);

movies: Better Off Dead; Jacob's Ladder; Pump Up The Volume; Bring It On; Pitch Perfect; Captain America (1 & 2); Chungking Express; Submarine;

shows: Kamen Rider Gaim; Kamen Rider Fourze; the West Wing; Steven Universe (see aforementioned ugly crying); Gravity Falls; Bravest Warriors; Bee & Puppycat; Penny Dreadful; The West Wing; Bob's Burgers;

music: The Mountain Goats; Godspeed You! Black Emperor; Kate Bush; Carla Bozulich; Mogwai; Lush; Belle & Sebastian; Tom Waits; Nick Cave; PJ Harvey; Siouxsie Sioux; Wu-Tang; Mr. Lif; Asobi Seksu; my Last.fm

food: Korean; Japanese; Ethiopian; Indian; Chinese; Vietnamese;

games: Tokaido; Lords of Waterdeep and other worker placement games; 13th Age (my D&D of choice); Over the Edge; Legend of Zelda; Chrono Trigger; Civilization; Alpha Centauri; Don't Starve; FTL; UnReal World; Saints Row (3 & 4); XCOM; Epic Spell Wars of the Battle Wizards: Duel at Mt. Skullzfyre; Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate; Castlevania: Symphony of the Night;

podcasts: Selected Shorts; Ken and Robin Talk About Stuff; Welcome to Night Vale;

some things I'm gonna judge you for: Ayn Rand; the Big Bang Theory; "everything except rap and country"; non-medical aversion to vegetables; I'm-not-feminist-because-I-believe-in-equality; #gamergate
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
late-night Korean;
books with elves, spaceships, or space elves;
dental hygiene;
reliable hydration;
the option of a proper command line;
wet wipes, tbh
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
rotary sushi bars and all-you-can-eat Korean bbq and doro wat with injera and really hot curries and half-smokes and jumbo slice and ramen and phô and dim sum and soup dumplings

(but not all at once);

how to live more gently in an increasingly hostile world;

how do I gender (specifically, how do I agender);

communication & emotional openness in relationships, and other things at which I once thought I was pretty good;
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
stalking the elusive chocodile
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I don't know how to celebrate holidays, including my own birthday;

I have never eaten a chocodile, and now it seems unlikely that I ever will;

there is a reference to another website in this profile, and while that website is, itself, highly problematic, if you get the reference, it may be indicative of some of my predilections. I deleted my account, though;

my name sans hyphen dot tumblr dot com, the content of which is also indicative of some of my predilictions;

maybe not so much "male" as "agender butch", maybe not so much "straight" as "attracted primarily to women and femmes";

shrooms changed/saved my life once, but only once;

I live with and take care of a dear friend (nb: not a romantic or sexual partner) who has chronic pain/fatigue issues and literally no other means of support. she can't work and has to go to a lot of doctors. SSI disability case pending. this doesn't mean I can't go do fun stuff ever, but it does mean I have unavoidable time commitments that take top priority, much like having a disabled romantic partner or disabled adult child. fortunately, these commitments are usually during business hours, but please consider carefully whether or not this is going to be a problem for you.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
you're broke or frugal and you want to hang out, get some delivery or takeout, watch movies &/or tv, and play tabletop &/or video games;

you believe that existence is naturally unfair and thus have little to no interest in preserving nature or acting naturally in that respect;

you value justice over equality;

your schedule is weird but flexible;

you are not on any sort of relationship timeline, escalator, or other linear path;

you have chocodiles and are willing to share;

you want to be commitment-phobic together;
