My self-summary
*UPDATE 2: UPDATE HARDER*
No longer poly, folks. I'll keep this profile active in case anyone wants to be friends
*/UPDATE*

To get the ball rolling:

I love computers, debating, cooking, eating, and making a fool of myself. I'm a voracious reader. I don't own a TV but I have netflix so it doesn't count. I frequently make horrible puns, and I'm unapologetic about it.

I am a well rounded nerd -- I'm equally comfortable comparing the merits of Linux distros, discussing my favorite Kafka short stories, or examining the biomechanics of a proper deadlift.

I am on a quest for the perfect seitan recipe.
What I’m doing with my life
Well, by day I work as a lab tech in a local biotech company. This mostly involves working with dangerous pathogens. I'm a huge clutz, so sometimes I'm surprised I'm good at this sort of stuff (watch me infect myself tomorrow).

By night I am trying to expand my circle of friends. I moved to Seattle recently and I'm having a bit of trouble meeting new people.

On the side I'm studying for the GRE biochem subject test; it'll be 2.5 hours of pure awesome. If anyone's taken it, please message me with tips. I'll bake you cookies.

I also like riding my bike everywhere. Moving to Capitol hill has made me realize I can adapt to pretty much any hill given time.
I’m really good at
anything that involves scientific notation, reading while walking, procrastinating, listening, burning homemade pizza, eating toppings off burnt pizza.

I've forgotten half of what I learned in college, but I can recall Street Sharks episodes with perfect clarity (they're jawsome!)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love indian, mexican, thai, italian... well, I love pretty much all food, as long as it's vegan.

I read a ridiculous amount of sci fi. Mostly pulpy stuff that I can't remember the authors of, but I really enjoy Neal Stephenson, Heinlein, Herbert, and Gene Wolfe.

Currently reading:
Bonk: The curious coupling of science and sex
The Culture Series
Latro of the Mist

Some all time favorites:
Lolita
Proust was a Neuroscientist
The Road
American Psycho
Confederacy of Dunces
The Moon is a Harsh Mistress
Sandman
Transmetropolitan
A Song of Ice and Fire

I listen to a huge range of music, from Squarepusher to Stevie Wonder to Blue Scholars to Monsters of Folk. Right now Menomena, Rogue Wave, and Horrorshow are getting a lot of play.

As far as movies and TV, I like the usual -- Dexter, Venture Bros, Firefly, BSG, Arrested Devlopment, The IT Crowd, etc etc.

Oh man I just discovered that OKTrends blog. The math of dating? I'm there.
The six things I could never do without
1) KEXP
2) a library card
3) my bike
4) hoodies
5) mexican chipotle field roasts
6) xkcd
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Where to find good new podcasts.

The eventual heat death of the universe.

And cupcakes.
On a typical Friday night I am
quite possibly getting into trouble with crossgartered
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I threw up on one of my first dates.
You should message me if
-- You're pretty rad.

-- Or, alternatively, you'd like to talk to a pretty rad person.

-- You think Batman is a superhero, and you'd like to make fun of all the pedants who disagree.

-- You think Batman isn't a superhero (just because he has no super powers? Pfft), and would like to debate the issue.
