My self-summary
I just found out that the Korean grocery store sells bibimbap kits and this is a life-changing discovery.

I'm looking for someone who'll come to other people's cottages with me.

And I have a cat.
What I’m doing with my life
I am working on a project of Radiohead songs with the lyrics replaced by text from online dating profiles called "OK Compupid." If you or someone you know can do a good Thom Yorke impression, please contact me immediately.

No, that's a joke. I actually work for my government cheese.

I'm starting to take up woodworking.

I am also occasionally paid to write trivia questions. Not sure if that's a good thing to mention around here. Please send feedback to
I’m really good at
Making french toast, thinking skeptically, opening beer bottles with a trowel, the J-stroke.
The first things people usually notice about me
Deep voice.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
After reading 6 Murakami books in a row earlier this year, I'm making a concerted effort to read books by women.* Also Understanding Early Civilizations by Bruce G. Trigger.

Under movies, The Bridge on the River Kwai, The Apartment, Brick, Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory, The Warriors (based on a play by Xenophon, don'tcha know), American Movie, Harold & Maude, The Ox-Bow Incident, and (almost) all the Coen Brothers.

From Aimee Mann and to Yo La Tengo. No Z bands allowed.

The best song ever written is "Don't Stop Me Now" by Queen. The worst might well be "In the Summertime" by Mungo Jerry. Sorry "Werewolves of London," you've been dethroned.

Adventure Time, Comedy Bang! Bang!, and Jeopardy!. That's one exclamation point per show.

Under food, all sorts. French toast was already mentioned, but it must have real maple syrup.

Stuff I think is good, mostly.

* I don't like that to come off as a brag, but look, most of the women I've told that to have said I should include it here, so I'm taking their advice.
Six things I could never do without
My iPod, good crossword puzzles, Sodastream, a pair of slippers, something to clean my glasses with, and a bathrobe. Honourable mention goes to bowties, but I guess I could survive without those.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Did you know that only moth caterpillars spin cocoons, and butterflies molt into chrysalises? How did I not know that before I was 27?
On a typical Friday night I am
relieved and excited.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
When I was around 6 years old, my family and my best friend's family held a garage sale. The owner of a nearby candy store, Sugar Mountain on Eglinton, wanted to purchase a Lite-Brite to make a sign for his store's window. He offered the adults a free Slush Puppy for each of the five children present, which we greatly enjoyed, in exchange for the ware. Two weeks later the store was out of business. I have never forgiven myself.
You should message me if
you want to watch David Attenborough documentaries with my cat.
The two of us
