Am in a long-term relationship with a life-partner. We've had romantic and non-romantic phases, as well as platonic and non-platonic. (The two are not always correlated.) We live apart, but will likely live together again. I've had other lovers in the past; she has other lovers now. One has become a good friend of mine. There's space for most anything to develop, but that's the framework in which it may happen.
I'm freakishly good at recognizing celebrity voice-overs, like John Hamm doing that car commercial, or John Lithgow doing the great Colbert political ad. I'm sure the CIA could use me but I have better things to do with my time.
I'm an excellent teacher. I've taught many college classes (Negotiations, Decision Theory, Statistics), tutored SAT math, reading, and writing, and given an awful lot of backgammon lessons. I genuinely enjoy teaching. I get puzzled and occasionally frustrated when people have knowledge and skills that they don't want to share with me.
I can juggle five balls. I can play "A Case of You" on the guitar. At one time I was a competition-level pool player, which means I can effortlessly beat anyone that hasn't put in a year or two of concentrated study, but will probably lose to anyone that is currently in shape. (If you happen to be interested, I can help transform your pool game to the next level and beyond. Teaching pool is great fun.)
This winter I got a lot better at snowboard jumps. I really want to get good at Lindy Hop.
I like to think I'm good at romantic relationships.
No one ever suspects that I'm Jewish by heritage. My mom would say I have a Jewish attitude, which was about the extent of my religious-cultural upbringing.
