My self-summary
This is the part where I use 'I' a lot.

I am an archeologist, amateur aerialist, reader, writer, cyclist.

I look and live much younger than my biological age. I am very responsible, but also goofy, shy, awkward (favorite word ever,) and have a healthy inner child.

I tend to be a bit of a homebody, but I do get out for good live music (I have tickets for Diamanda Galas, Thurston Moore, and Henry Threadgill.)

When I win the lottery, I am going to hire Tim Burton to design a house with crooked architecture, secret passageways, and hallways that go nowhere.

All of my vices are inexpensive, except for the occasional book buying binge.

Update: Just bought my first home! Walking distance to my office and to my favorite music venues downtown. I am pleased.

Music is my serotonin reuptake inhibitor.

Descriptors: Optimistic. Introverted. Stoic. Whimsically Humored. Meticulous. Awkward. Autoluminescent.

I'm kind of terrified and overwhelmed by the election.

Six things I could never do without
I'd run into a burning building to save my cat.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
On a windless day, how many helium balloons would I need to attach to my body to enable me to jump 50 feet into the air, and then float safely to the ground.

How my life feels like an ee cummings poem.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I do not eat vegetables, condiments or sauces. These are borderline phobias for me. I'm ok if you eat them, but I may have to occasionally avert my eyes.

When I was about eight years old a teacher told my class that, on average, a human being would take 13 million breaths before dying. Of course to my eight year old mind this meant that I had better start breathing slower, or better yet, hold my breath as long as I could, as often as I could. I know better now, but still secretly enjoy holding my breath in hope of extended life.
You should message me if
If you want to sit around and listen to vinyl, watch weird movies (or not so weird movies,) or get coffee and talk for hours.
