My self-summary
I'm pretty easy to make laugh, and often crack dumb jokes. I just can't help myself. I like having a beer in a bar with a good jukebox but I hate crowded clubs, unless a really good band is playing. I make a great travel companion.

I don't need to be impressed by your music collection or knowledge of 70's cinema, but I will enjoy learning about and discussing whatever moves you. I have very strong political opinions and have devoted my life to something I believe in, but I hate electoral politics and tend to avoid much of the public debate. With that said, I am decidedly and unapologetically about as left as you can get. I'm a fantastic dinner party guest. Oh, and I spend much more time in friends' kitchens and living rooms than in bars these days.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a public defender. And yes, night court is just like the TV show. In all seriousness, I have my dream job. I love being a trial attorney and I love fighting for my clients. I also have strong opinions about the morality (or immorality) of the criminal justice system, so don't get me started. I also make the best biscuits in town. My current favorite is the yogurt biscuit. Yogurt makes a great biscuit, and they go great with bacon gravy.
I’m really good at
Forming and articulating strong opinions
Changing those opinions when duly persuaded
Getting people out of lock up
I love games, bridge, poker, pool, but I'm not that good at many of them.

Cooking an awesome dinner with whatever I find in your house. This is one of my favorite games.

Staying up too late with new and old friends, telling stories and laughing
Drinking good whisky
The first things people usually notice about me
I have been told I look like a hotter Frances McDormand, Blood Simple era.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Kinks, Buzzcocks, Replacements, Joy Division, the Feelies, Flaming Lips, Biz Marke, Dolly Parton, Townes Van Zandt, and Springsteen's Nebraska, Prince, Shuggie Otis, Bill Withers, Funkadelic, the Pretenders,

Cassavetes (Gloria), Kubrick (The Killing, Lolita), Altman (The Long Goodbye), Malick (Badlands) I'll watch anything in documentary format. I'm also a sucker for anything with a dragon.

Borges, Calvino, The Russians, Joseph Roth. Just finished Call It Sleep by Henry Roth. Highly recommend.
Six things I could never do without
bitter greens, beer (I really like good beer), beans 'n' rice, friends, dancing, um, stuff
I spend a lot of time thinking about
what I should have for dinner and how much cumin to use
On a typical Friday night I am
Cooking dinner with friends.
Watching a movie. Out for drinks.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
There's nothing I won't admit. Being private has never been one of my virtues.
You should message me if
Do not message me if you are a couple, that's just not what I'm looking for. Good luck to you.
The two of us
