My self-summary
I took a knock-off Meyers-Briggs test that pegs me for an ENTP: the Rational Inventor.

I used to presume I was interesting, but writing about myself as a person leads me to some really banal existential thinking. Wow, it's like I have no guiding personal philosophy. Scary.

A tomboy in childhood, I can be ladylike and un-ladylike, depending on what is appropriate at the time.

I am originally a Midwesterner, earned honorary citizenship in Oregon, then moved to San Francisco in 2005 for work and I love it here.

I can be very independent, even though I love and sometimes crave companionship. I don't often group around in groups because my best friends are so different from one another that I can never get them in the same room. I lead a vibrant life, and one of these days I would like to find someone to share it with.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm happily coasting along at the moment. I have a career in energy policy that keeps me busy. I enjoy professional sports, I read, I like to do crafts and cook. I collect maps and curiosities, and this takes me hither and yon to interesting little shops.

My favorite outdoor activities are golf and kayaking, both of which involve being near/on the ocean. I'm a decent skier when I get out. I ditched the car a few years ago, so I admit I don't get out as much as I used to, but I'm working on that.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm colorful and energetic.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Lists, lists, lists. Just skim this section.
[UPDATE: I deleted all but a couple of the lists. Who needs 'em?]

FOOD. I believe that if it was cute in life, it will be delicious on a plate. Sorry vegetarians, we're probably not a match. Vegans need not apply.

Movies...The Royal Tennenbaums/Rushmore/Life Aquatic (anything Wes Anderson), Annie Hall, Death Proof, Kill Bill 1&2 (anything Tarantino), Blade Runner, Empire Strikes Back, This is Spinal Tap, Boogie Nights, Kubrick, me out here! I am drawing a blank so many good movies. ANIMATION!!! Anything Ralph Bakshi, Archer, Korgoth of Barbaria, old Planet of the Apes, Samurai Jack, SouthPark, the Brak Show...ah, tasteless classics.
Six things I could never do without
A purpose in life
Something good to read
Green space: some nature around me
Not "just food." I need Great Food
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Pretty things. Sex. My work. Economics. Businesses. Laws. Being in a metal opera. Society. The nexus of war and peace. Why I always miss buses. Clothing styles.
On a typical Friday night I am
I might be at a game. Or maybe I'm out on the town. Maybe I'm having a small dinner party--I love to cook! Or maybe I'm just in the mood to go straight home to the comfort of a relaxing bubble bath after a long work week. Pretty typical for SF, eh?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
At first I was nervous about Kevin Durant joining the Warriors.
You should message me if
Smart, funny and masculine--you're my type.
Successful,* cynical and somewhat romantic--bonus!
Irreverent, driven, and lazy on Sundays--we're a match, baby.
*Here's a very nice poem (translation) about success:
The two of us
