I'm a chirpy fellow. I like the way hard-soled shoes clip-clop on cement. I can't sleep in a room with a ticking clock because I start. think. ing. like. this. I have a great handle on What Matches What and am learning to pronounce those "Wh"s. I talk to my houseplants in French (update: all dead), lose my keys almost once a day, and have great luck avoiding parking tickets (update: now have $750 in outstanding fines. Outstanding!). I will listen your mouth off more often than talk your ear off.
In search of: someone who will deal with my forgetfulness, learn me how to fell a tree, and watch Bette Davis movies unironically with me. If you're an artist of any sort, yes yes yes.
Flying by the seat of my short-shorts.
Charming parents and large dogs.
Picking the wrong battles.
Languages, music theory, remembering high school science factoids, memorizing, noticing the unnoticeable.

Music? Get real, son. All of it.
