My self-summary
I have no aptitude for opening lines. Please don't hold it against me.

I read a lot, and like to talk about what I've read. I have a lot of thoughts on a lot of topics, many of them silly, some of them clever, and all of them held far more confidently than is justified by the evidence. Physical affection is extremely important to me, but it's not mandatory for a good conversation. Without music, life would be a mistake. I think comedy is a sacred, serious thing, but I have a very hard time being serious.

Some things I've written:

Polytheism as a Guide to Morality

Rent: A Recursive Tragic Allegory

Gods Actually Exist

Extremely Niche Crossover Shit
What I’m doing with my life
In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit. Not a nasty, dirty, wet hole, filled with the ends of worms and an oozy smell, nor yet a dry, bare, sandy hole with nothing in it to sit down on or to eat: it was a hobbit-hole, and that means comfort.
I’m really good at
Comedic Timing.
Road Trips
Recreational Hermeneutics
Wandering around new cities
Vocabularistic perambulations

Packing cars and closets Tetris Style
