I don't always drink beer, but when I do it's porters and stouts. Mostly.
A style guide hasn't been on my bookshelf since high school, but it still makes me feel a bit naughty to start a sentence with the word "and."
One time, I went furniture shopping at IKEA by myself. Do not go furniture shopping at IKEA by yourself. Your carts will be too heavy and you'll get stuck somewhere in the warehouse. The groups who planned ahead will openly judge as you struggle with an unwieldy Askvoll.
And finally, I'm a horror junkie and a voracious reader always looking for cool new media to consume, so an easy way to introduce yourself would be a book or movie suggestion! Bonus points if it's something I've never heard of before, and extra bonus points if you know a place that shows it at midnight.
There are a few pieces I have in utero, so to say, that I'd like to publish or send in as application materials or both. If I like you a lot, I might even ask you to read them during the process and tell me what still sucks. What can I say? I like it rough.
If you take me snowboarding I'll race you down the first double black we see.
Maybe this is a weird thing to consider a skill, but I pride myself on being adaptable. By that I mean I strive to find the adventure in all the little ways life can screw with a well-laid plan. The best stories never end with "..and so, everything happened exactly as it should."
Rumor has it I can also make a mean chili (it's all in the salt. Everything is in the salt. Also, red wine. Sometimes I even put it in the chili.)
I cut my hair myself, so the feedback is always appreciated.
When I want to put a movie on I know I'll enjoy, I'll watch Quentin Tarantino, Chan-Wook Park, Takeshi Miike, Alfred Hitchcock, David Lynch, Kim Jee-Woon, Dario Argento, David Fincher or Christopher Nolan pre-TDKR.
I listen to all kinds of stuff, but some of my more recent playlists draw from David Bowie, The Raconteurs, The Beatles, Arctic Monkeys, Elliott Smith, Blockhead, Beach Boys, Lovage, Otis Redding, Santo & Johnny, Mr. Twin Sister, Frank Ocean, alt-J, Portishead, RJD2, Caribou, Gin Wigmore, The War On Drugs, Flying Lotus, Pink Floyd, St. Vincent, Spoon, The Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger, Cults and Death (they're a punk band from the early 70s that didn't get a lot of recognition until really recently - check them out!)
As far as eating goes, I'm part-goat. I eat anything and I love finding food I've never tried before.
A stack of books I have yet to read.
A manageable amount of organized chaos.
Sunlight, and lots of it.
I'm really friendly once you get me talking, but still working past a bit of shyness. So if I messaged you first, I'm super duper interested.
