My self-summary
RIP Gene Wilder, definitely one of my favorite actors.

Dia dhuit, Hola, Bonjour, Ahoj, Привет, und guten Tag. Welcome to my profile.

My profile is too long, I know. I'm sorry about that. Not really.

I'm a 28 years young, lived the first quarter-century of my life in the USA. I'm nice and polite. I'm studying in Germany, but presently this bathing in nostalgia in the Twin Cities. I try to be polite, not making much noise like shutting doors loudly, or staying out of the way when multiple people are in the kitchen. Unless I'm truly desperate, then I bite their necks and drain their fluids.

I find water calming. Ironically I was found it boring when I was very young and to the cabin. But as I grew older, I always found a sort of "seaside" scene an indescribable peace (and piece) of nature.

I decided many years ago to commit to the life of a starving musician. Piano, clarinet, flute, cello—I've tried pretty much everything at least once. But I play the biggest instrument around. I promise I'm not compensating for anything.

I can be shy, but when open I'm very sarcastic and enjoy jokes of many sorts (I greatly miss "That's what she said" jokes because people in Germany don't understand them). I'm fond of porch beers and collapsing onto the couch with a pizza and beer to watch Netflix or play retro Nintendo-franchise games. I'm a proud homeowner, educated linguist, and I enjoy biking. I hope "boardgames" isn't cliché, but I do greatly enjoy them. A good chess partner would be most appreciated.

~~Why did Professor Snape teach Potions and not Herbology? Because his Lily died.
What I’m doing with my life
Earlier I was a kitchen slave. Say what you will about food service, but one saves a lot of money when you can eat at work. I've been organ-ing in churches since I was 17, and I do some very simple bartending on the side. I've also been the right-hand hitman for a drug kingpin, and organized a successful cock-fighting ring in the basement of my house for several years. It didn't end because the police found us, but rather my dog couldn't resist the taste of chicken.

Enjoying my Beer-For-Life at Lake Monster Brewery.

Presently I'm keeping my eyes open for job possibilities.
I’m really good at
...nothing until I've had my coffee in the morning. Followed by a second cup. And then a third.

The obvious: music. I try to occupy my time in Germany as a concert organist. For the music nerds out there: I've played the entire 2nd book of Bach's Well-tempered Clavier in concert. I'm also a composer.

I'm also fantastically terrible at writing opening messages to people here.

Finding four-letter words beginning with C.

~~If "pro" is the opposite of "con," what is the opposite of "progress?"
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
TV Addictions: Dexter, How I met Your Mother, Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul, Doctor Who, Psych, South Park, Arrested Development, Archer, Steven Colbert-John Oliver-Jon Stewart, Daredevil, Tatort, House of Cards, Doctor House

Yummy edibles: Eggs, pizza, and an unhealthy addiction to spicy food. Sushi (when affordable). I enjoy all cuisines from Mexican to Chinese. American guilty pleasures: diners with breakfast all day, Buffalo Wild Wings, and Chipotle.

Aural stimulation: Strictly classical, with Bach is my favorite. Also Mozart, Chopin, Пётр Чайковский... but I don't actively listen, but rather play. The perks and curses of perfect pitch. Also: video game music. For some reason I cannot shake how beautiful some soundtracks are; Super Mario Galaxy - Gusty Gardens, for example.

Guilty pleasures from Hollywood: Sherlock Holmes, Pirates, Django Unchained, James Bond films... I'll update later. It's surprisingly hard to think of such things on the spot, but generally speaking, I enjoy most films; comedy/action seem to be my go-to's. I enjoy horror flicks, but preferably with a cuddle buddy.

~~How do you know if a soprano is at your door? She doesn't know which key, and doesn't know when to come in.
The six things I could never do without
1) Coffee
2) Beer
3) Music
4) My house and sense of financial stability
5) The feeling of waking up in the morning without needing to set an alarm clock
6) Linguistic challenges.
7) The ability to count to 6.

~~I think my neighbor is stalking me. She was Googling my name on her computer last night, as I saw it through my telescope.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Well, what I DON'T spend a lot of time thinking about is reincarnation. But I did in a previous life.

Who has actually taken the time to read my profile from top to... well, this point.

~~I bet you that I can stop gambling.
On a typical Friday night I am
Watching Disney films on Netflix. Ok, not really, but I do mean this in all honesty: as a classical musician, there are several tunes out of the Disney world that I find rather magical (ha... pun...).

~~Speaking of puns: How did I escape Iraq? Iran.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
~~When I get naked in the bathroom, the shower usually gets turned on.
You should message me if
If you want to practice German or English.

I can convince you to vote for Donald Drumpf for president -- I encourage you to watch this video, at the very least from the 18:05 mark: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DnpO_RTSNmQ

You're welcome to ask any question you would like. Yes, question. You get just one, I encourage you to use it wisely.

~~ ..... Oh, I'm sorry, were you expecting yet another joke? Well, I guess you'll have to inquire within for more :P
