I will take you at your word. I'm a bad liar. I return pens to their rightful owners.
I will respect your privacy and personal space. I wait until you're done talking.
When not working my ass off, I also enjoy:
riding my bicycle all over Chicago;
meeting friends for tabletop role-playing games
going to lots of workshops
Making people feel good about themselves
Learning from others
I pretty much always have a couple of books with me in case I ever want to sit down and read.
Movies: Raising Arizona; The Transporter; Shortbus; 28 Days Later; Kill Bill; Shaun of the Dead; To Kill A Mockingbird; Muppets Take Manhattan; Ghostbusters; Secretary; Bring it On; Aliens; The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly
Music: Screaming Females; Fugazi; Belle & Sebastian; The Smiths; The Pixies; The Specials; Ted Leo; Sleater-Kinney; Elvis Costello; Sick Of It All; Le Tigre; Johnny Cash; Public Enemy; Sonic Youth; Sinead O'Connor; Motorhead; Joy Division; Gang of Four
fantasy novels with swords and magic (even if I haven't had time to read one in a while)
emotional and physical connections with others
late-night conversations with friends
SPF 30 sunscreen
how to live every day to the fullest
gender and other binaries and how to smash them
how to avoid getting hit by a car while biking in Chicago
where I should go camping
class issues and capitalism
escape routes from whichever room I am currently in
at a party with friends
playing video games and listening to music
maybe all three in one evening.
Message me if you want to meet up for coffee or something else. I'm always looking for more people to ride my bicycle with, or to do some climbing.
Witty conversation is appreciated.
Have a good head on your shoulders.
