My self-summary
I've never broken a bone. Which impresses me considering how buildings, cliffs, and objects I've fallen off of.

But I have seen wolverines in the wild. Twice.

I'm powerfully average in some ways. I work in IT. I wear medium t-shirts and pants with a 32" waist. I find pot roast and potatoes immensely satisfying. I have a shoe shine kit. I go to the gym frequently enough to not be a fat ass, but not so often I actually look like it. I ride the train to work; I read the Economist. I smile at children. I am the 30 something white eveyrman.

What makes me rare: I have a soothing baritone that encourages people to take my words as fact, even when they're clearly not. If it's a task I have any ability for, I can learn very quickly. It makes me good at jobs. I saved a friend from drowning. A few jobs back, I cost an employer well over six figures and they didn't fire me. The second best vindaloo I've ever had is one I made.

New York is home.
What I’m doing with my life
Working. Working a lot. Trying to balance the stresses of what I've taken on professionally with trying to give my friends good reasons to keep inviting me out, even when I'm absent for weeks at a time.
I’m really good at
I'm a great friend - people who know me keep me around. Also cooking; navigating; having good stories; my job.
The first things people usually notice about me
My voice - I sound like James Earl Jones.

That or the steely calm entitlement that comes from a certain type of private school upbringing.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Collapse, The Diamond Age, Catch 22, Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy.

Dirty Pretty Things, No Country for Old Men, Casino Royale.

QI, Top Gear, The Mind of a Chef, anything with David Attenborough

Almost everything Devin Townsend ever recorded, Lamb of God, scattered electropop.

All food. Has everyone here been to the Golden Mall in Flushing? Holy crap that place holds the absolute record for cost:deliciousness:variety.
Six things I could never do without
Good people, precise words, music to hush out the world, lush flora, good cause for optimism, my sprawling imagination.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Human relationships and how I can help the people I love be happier.

And food. I spend way too much brainpower planning meals.

My job.
On a typical Friday night I am
Home, actually. Friday night is for resting - its the other 6 nights that are for fun and (usually boozy) excitement.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't care for ice cream and I'm a terrible liar.
You should message me if
You have stories to share. Or you want an activity partner. Or you want someone to have a cook off against.

I have many friends, but there's a certain part of one's brain that only gets exercised when meeting new people and getting out of comfortable circles. I'd like to keep that sharp.
The two of us
