My self-summary
My general qualities: creative, loyal, nerdy.

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. I am also a television nerd. I follow more shows than is probably safe.

I want to do more, but i am generally much more active with a gentle prod from friends.
I’m really good at
Thinking ahead(xkcd.com). Keeping my word. Making a plan. Following directions. Listening. Skipping the BS. Making dessert.
The first things people usually notice about me
Usually I go unnoticed until I open my mouth. If I'm in a group, it'll typically be after a long silent period, and (hopefully?) something astute or hilarious. People will laugh and then wonder "where'd that guy come from?"
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.

Music: Girl Talk and Hospital Records are foremost lately. I like most anything, though, at the right time. Even country has its moments.
The six things I could never do without
I always know where my phone, keys, laptop, and portable Rifftrax collection are...and I obviously can't do without the essentials 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.

Recently, 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 has kickstarted my focused efforts in creativity of late.
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. Vacilating. Whiffing. Xenarthral. Yowling. Zen.

*Metaphorically or fictionally only.
** with cards, not politicians.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I had a dream once where i was listening to Leslie Knope give a presentation at a zoo. The animal in question was described as the 'happiest animal on the planet' and was kept that way due to the presence of a continuous fine mist of apple cider. I made a comment that I would also be the happiest animal on the planet if i had a mister full of apple cider, which i found uproariously funny and woke up laughing hysterically.

I then looked back on the story and realized that it makes no sense and is not funny at all. I think the dream was a meta-criticism of myself for watching Parks and Recreation in the first place. The dream occurred before later seasons made the show actually worth the time investment, so maybe my subconscious recognized that the show was developing into something awesome.

I have a ton of dreams that I really enjoy talking about, so maybe that isn't super private. Better: sometimes I edit my profile just to get more people to look at it.
You should message me if
You give good banter or are interested in musing about the metaphysical implications of the movie Her. I am profoundly upset that I cannot rewrite my operating system to achieve the Singularity.
