My self-summary
How does one begin a summary of one's 'self'? Which strata from one's complex layering of identity is one to consider for this 'self'-summary?

"Do 'I' end at the limits of the experience of myself?"

Or is one also composed of one's nature as perceived by others? How does one summarize one's 'self' in consideration of this diffusion of identity? I suppose one begins an attempt, logically, with the First Person:

I am... complex... intellectually. I appreciate—and this is putting it simply—the pervasive and brilliantly perfect web of metaphor that is foundation to everything. Related to this is a marrow-deep impulse towards the humorous (comedéphilia?) and a tendency for magniloquent and verbose... uh... words.

I make excellent sushi for a living; I read voraciously; I can walk like some kind of crazy walking machine, never stopping, never slowing down, over hill and dale; sometimes when I'm thinking I grip my forearm in my jaws by the wrist; I wear black often; I don't dye my hair; I learned how to read pretty young by reading D&D rulebooks cover to cover, over and over'; I think THX-1138 is the greatest movie ever, but George Lucas is a fat, opulent hack; My Grandfather was O. J. Simpson's track coach at City College and my Great-Grandfather was one of the world-famous Andrini Brothers; I can fit the better part of my fist in my mouth.

I am serious, absurd, and always laughing
What I’m doing with my life
I'm doing what I can with my life: taking every moment in stride (or trying to, at least) and expanding my awareness to include more and more of reality; I'm reading books with my life (now that's a silly sentence); I'm drawing pictures OF my life. I guess at some point aspirations should enter into this diatribe—to be frank, though, I haven't got many aside from learning from and experiencing this world in as close to its entirety as possible. Other than all that nonsense I'm living with my life. Crazy, huh?
I’m really good at
Chess; math; reading dense subject matter; conceptualizing dense subject matter; discussing dense subject matter; making you laugh; making you not laugh; eating; cooking; drawing certain things; drawing certain other things poorly; PUNishment; absoloquey; obsoloquey; soliloquey; semi-colon usage; silliness; absurdity; watching anime; listening to hip-hop, punk-rock, black-metal and dub-step; babbling on and on and on and on; not knowing when to stop talking or typing or thinking; being right; being wrong; being; not being; whatever the fuck I put my mind to.
The first things people usually notice about me
I do believe you'd have to ask them. My tattoos, perhaps? Or my left-handedness? Or the color of my underwear? Shit, I don't know.
