My self-summary
Midwest-to-mountains transplant brewer, skier, and all around Colorado stereotype. I like technology for its own sake and feel that censorship is the ultimate expression of fear. I think I'm funny but I'm probably not. I enjoy long walks on the beach...

Really, if you want to know about me, let's have a conversation. I have no idea what to write here.

"Ah, computer dating. It's like pimping except you rarely have to use the phrase 'upside the head'." - Bender

I am lucubrious, aloof, and frequently cynical.
What I’m doing with my life
In the summer, running occupies a lot of my time - or energy, at any rate. Each winter I seem to get a bit more into skiing. Any potential gains are offset by beer-related activities, or wasting time on the internet, mostly geeking out about beer and/or running (statistics ftw). We're both geeks or you wouldn't be reading this, right?
I’m really good at
Growing a beard. Gaming Pandora to play the song I want. Verbing nouns. Brewing. Laughing at my own jokes. Words with Friends. Karaoke-ing (this is not the same as singing). Verbing nouns. Repeating myself. This will get me in trouble, but... skiing.
The first things people usually notice about me
I have a very dry, self-deprecating sense of humor that sometimes spills over into just plain deprecating. So I'm sure that more often than I'd like people notice that I make fun of them right off the bat.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I read a book and watch two or three movies a week - escapism maybe? I like science fiction and pulp fiction, but also things that make me think about something new, or maybe just differently. Lately I've been reading a lot of historical and alternative fiction. Of course, I find a reason to refer to one brewing text or another pretty much daily.

Music! I'll give anything a shot, from a cappella to zydeco. A good litmus test: is there instrumentation other than a beat machine? Most country still doesn't make the cut. I'm probably the only person who bought the second OK Go album (it's really good!).

I like lots of foods and can often be found cooking a dinner that will be hours late and of questionable quality. I have no reasonable access to sushi, and I find myself craving it more than is probably reasonable. I'm a little miffed that unless I'm vegetarian/vegan, my only option on here is "anything", like I don't care what I shovel into my gullet.

I eschew lists.
Six things I could never do without
A computer, a good pair of running shoes, and a quality beer are all it really takes to make me happy. A partner to share any/all of the above would certainly be high on the list, or I wouldn't be here.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to pluralize words borrowed from foreign languages. Is it "alumnas" or "alumnae"? ("Alumni" is incorrect, obviously.) "Bureaus" or "bureaux"? These are the thoughts that kept me out of the really good schools.
On a typical Friday night I am
Home recovering from the day, more often than not. Work makes my social schedule... let's say "fluid".
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'd like to produce/direct/star in a stage production of Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog.
You should message me if
you like beer. Or if you don't like beer and can accept that I'm going to try to convince you you're wrong.
The two of us
