My self-summary
Short version: From New York, went to college in Baltimore, lived in Thailand after graduation, then came down to DC because it turns out Long Island is short on cheap rental opportunities for 20-somethings.
What I’m doing with my life
Working my way through "How to Cook Everything" by Mark Bittman.

Being annoyed that DC is filled only with consultants, government workers and military while ignoring the fact that I am a consultant.

Staying up too late playing video games and downloading ebooks.

Enjoying walking around in the rain.
I’m really good at
Reading. Volleyball. Video games. SCUBA diving. Cooking Thai food (well... coconut soup and curry, anyway). Staging inappropriate conversations for the benefit of strangers. Chicken fights (pool AND ocean). Referencing 90s television shows. Whack-A-Mole.
The first things people usually notice about me
My smile. Or my giant head.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Anything by Terry Pratchett, Douglas Adams, Brandon Sanderson, Neil Gaiman, or Alan Moore. Mists of Avalon, Snow Crash, America: The Book, Watchmen, How To Cook Anything

Oh, and Harry Potter, because come on, it's pretty entertaining.

Movies: Gran Torino, Serenity, Aristocrats, The Big Chill, The Dark Knight, Charlie Chaplin's City Lights, Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog

Food: Sushi; Bratwurst; Eggplant Parmesan; Elaborate Sandwiches; Cold Cheese Pizza; Really Good Pulled Pork That I End Up Making So Much Of That I Can Eat Only It For Over A Week
Six things I could never do without

-A computer

-A sense of humor

-A sense of whimsy

-The feeling of a strong wind blowing into my face.

-This conch shell I just found in my closet that I haven't seen for years but will never give up again.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
-How to bluff people into not challenging your made-up words in Scrabble

-If the spiritual aspects of my Thai massage training are bullshit or not

-Sandwiches, this "Firefly" board game I recently bought but haven't played, how guilty I should feel about gentrification at any given point in time (current level: not very), strawberry moonshine, the excuses people make for disliking cats vs. the excuses they make for disliking dogs
On a typical Friday night I am
-lamenting the lack of good karaoke options in DC

-drinking either expensive beer or cheap wine. Or medium-priced liquor.

-trapping armchair linguists with the more obscure meanings of "affect and "effect."

-Playing "Marry, Fuck, Kill" with extra rules for past and future versions of people, fictional characters and Anthropomorphic Personifications
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
In college I had a TV show in which I gave a lap dance while dressed as the Hamburglar.
You should message me if
You can make an xkcd reference, a margarita, or a well-timed dirty joke. Or if you really want to know what cold cheese pizza is.
The two of us
