I was born and raised in Wisconsin, and have lived in Asia for four years, including two years in a yurt in Mongolia while in the Peace Corps.
I'm smart, funny, and a mensch.
I love all music, especially indie rock and The Pixies. I don't watch much TV, except for 30 Rock, The Office, and South Park.
I watch a lot of movies, and recent favorites included Synecdoche NY, Moon, The White Ribbon, The Cove, Dogtooth, Tuesday After Christmas, and The Tree of Life.
I read a lot a book or two a week, and prefer heavier stuff: Ian McEwan, Christopher Hitchens, Cormac McCarthy, Kazuo Ishiguro, Salman Rushdie, Michael Ondaatje, and Michel Houellebecq. I read the Chron, the Guardian, and the NY Times online, and still laugh out loud reading The Onion.
Bonus points for non-natives.
