My self-summary
I like the taste of water. I don't own a Tv, but keep rewatching various Joss Whedon shows. My alarm goes off to music so I can wake up and dance to start my day. I can be the most (ext/int)roverted person you have every met, depending on the situation. I'm cerebral and dorky, and down to earth and fun. I like some sci-fi, but hate most of it.

I curse like a sailor stereotype, but invariably say things like "shiatzu terrier" "holy snickerdoodle" and "F*** sh** ti*** f***" because I enjoy saying things differently. I also say things like "God Bless America" when people sneeze and in betwain instead of in between the two of them. Google tells me that John Milton also used that word. My boss told me that southerners do too.....

I like baseball far too much and far too frequently. (it's the winter and I read baseball blogs every day)

I really like walking. I walked to my parent's home in NE Philly from my place in CC because I felt like it. I can't bicycle, because I thought I would keep on rollerblading. I don't own a car because it's almost pointless where I live. And I like walking.

I like making witty jokes. I like making dumb jokes. I like making jokes about sex and about poop, though the latter tend to get stuck inside my mind. (sorry)

I own a dart board, though it smashed to the floor the night I first put it up. I own a lot of books (thousands) but most are in another language.

I lived in England for three years and I miss it terribly.

I'm mostly "liberal," but my practical opinions are different than my theoretical ones.

I drink 5-8 liters of water a day.
What I’m doing with my life
I write, teach and volunteer. I'm currently working on a novella, but not banking out that banking.
The first things people usually notice about me
My either messy or curly hair. Sometimes that I wear the same hoodie a lot, though that regards a more subtle type of noticing.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'm kind of a non-mainstream culture fiend, but especially when it comes to music. My top two categories are varieties of folk rock (think Mountain Goats, Moldy Peaches, some brit-folk and Against Me! for the range) and anything rock/punk that has a good base (the Thermals, Raconteurs, Cage the Elephant etc.)
I'm a sucker for all sorts of good food, but especially middle eastern. I'm a beer snob who drinks darker beers (stouts, browns and only sometimes ipa) but I know nothing about wine. Also, chocolate- that is all.
Six things I could never do without
So, people either take this question literally or answer what they really like/ what makes up their style of day. Taken literally, most of us can't live without the same sort of things.

On the other branch: I typically only drink three beverages, water, beer and oj (+ pineapple sometimes). Yes, I drink coffee and tea, but only for caffeine, not because I like it.

I really enjoy Netflix, though I watch a lot of stuff on other types via other types of websites. I'm thankful for Amazon, not just because I can find Kmart-esque prices, but because I don't have to pay tax. I have little inclination to "screw the man," but enjoy him not screwing me.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What I'm writing. And baseball. Questions of poltics, morality, religion and philosophy. And when I'm done that, I spend time thinking about possible metaphors for those things. I've been wanting to write about Occupy recently, but only vague ideas have come to mind.
On a typical Friday night I am
I'd divide it into thirds. Either I'm doing something Jewy, going out, or I stay home and try to write.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
To the whole world? Check later.
To someone I just met, surprisingly a lot.
You should message me if
You're awesome. You like jokes at inappropriate moments. You feel like it?
The two of us
