My self-summary
I am a big fan of wordplay, although I often come up with it a minute or two too late. I am consequently (or unrelatedly?) awful at scrabble. I pay too much attention to meanings and will crack up at an unintended double entendre at the most inappropriate times.

I enjoy just about everything i've ever done, if you're genuinely excited about something, chances are i'll enjoy it too.
What I’m doing with my life
I mostly just work and watch tv.

Otherwise, I'm doing whatever with friends. Board games are my happy place.
I’m really good at
Thinking ahead( Keeping my word. Making a plan. Following directions. Listening. Skipping the BS. Making dessert.
The first things people usually notice about me
On the street, i appear to be in a hurry, but really I just prefer to be moving at top speed - even when I don't have a specific destination.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Candide (the best of all possible satire?), Douglas Adams, The Red Queen, Godel, Escher, Bach: An Eternal Golden Braid,

Movies: Anything with a Rifftrax. Or almost anything else, really. There are 3 known movies i didn't enjoy: Juwanna mann, marie antoinette, and the divine secrets of the yaya sisterhood. Almost ten years later, that list has not grown. Perhaps I've gotten better at self-selecting.
Six things I could never do without
A problem to solve.
I'm single-minded, that's really all i need out of life.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Things that are truly tangential to whatever is actually being discussed. People eventually learn to smile and nod at my puzzlingly offtopic comments.

One time, I went for a walk and ran into a trio of kids who were up to no good. One had a pillow, another was carrying a small dog, and a third was carrying a kickball. They were camped out at the side of the road waiting for a passing car, to do what I still can barely imagine. My failure of imagination to even comprehend their plan often serves as inspiration to explore more childlike wonder.
On a typical Friday night I am
Alphabetizing. Blaspheming*. Clever. Different. Elsewhere. Farsighted*. Gerrymandering*. Heedless. Inappropriate. Jazzed. Kissing. Looking. Meandering. Needling. Ostriched*. Playing. Quiet. Rioting*. Spoofing. Trumping**. Underwhelmed. Vacillating. Whelming. Xenarthral. Yowling. Zen.

*Metaphorically or fictionally only.
** with cards, not politicians.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
If I were to compare myself to a pizza (which i highly recommend doing), I would be a standard crust (not thin, not thick) that has been out for delivery for too long and gotten just a little cold. Extra cheesy; shaved mozzarella, grated parmesan, and a little bit of goat. It's still a fucking pizza, so of course someone's going to want it. Can always be reheated.
You should message me if
You have any inclination to do so. Somehow, I am not overwhelmed by the sheer number of people who find this profile, so I'll find the time to respond in some way.

Bonus points if you give good banter or are interested in musing about the metaphysical implications of the movie Her. I am personally profoundly upset that I cannot rewrite my operating system to achieve the Singularity.
The two of us
