My self-summary
I like live music, novel events, and showing up at places where black denim jackets are de rigeur, even though I don't match the dress code. I've been to book signings by Pratchett, Rothfuss, and Chris Hadfield, so I've got that nerd cred. In the right company, I can haunt a basement, dance at Transmission, and third your Thursdays. I am a champion bouncy ball jouster.

I'm a 24/7 party animal. This week I've been going on reasonable hour benders, getting rowdy watching Sally Yate's testimony.
What I’m doing with my life
Balancing my job and social life while working on fitness and skating.
I’m really good at
"Your hugs are pretty fucking baller. Like, if you ever need anyone to vouch on your behalf, I will gladly submit a glowing recommendation. Using the flowery-est, most erudite language to obtain the appropriate level of panache."
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
What If: Serious Scientific Answers to Absurd Hypothetical Questions; A Briefer History of Time; Freakonomics; Predictably Irrational; Dune; Musicophilia especially, but pretty much anything by Oliver Sacks; This is Your Brain on Music; Transmetropolitan; Saga; powerhouses Pratchett and Gaiman. Does Mitch Hedberg count as an author?

I love szechuan, and spice, and everything nice, but getting in shape means my pizza delivery guy is left wondering if it's something he did.
Six things I could never do without
Honestly, I could almost pass for a pretty decent ascetic, save for a particular fondness for shiny things and indoor plumbing. Oh, and lip balm.

My soul hurts for lack of a good concert buddy.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
why I just walked into this room. Also pretty big on science, medicine, public health, and social justice, bleeding heart liberal-style.
On a typical Friday night I am
Who cares about Friday? Roller derby is on Saturdays.
You should message me if're sick to death of coffee dates. And cleverness.

If you want to force me to use my gym/climbing memberships, feel free.
