My self-summary
"Frequently funny, an active listener, empathetic, kind-hearted, generous with affection, loyal, and forgiving."—How a good friend implored me to describe myself here.

The day after Hurricane Irene, while I was walking down to the river to survey the damage, my hat blew off my head and I chased it for 100 yards as it rolled along its brim before landing in a ditch. It was on that day that I finally became Buster Keaton, and it was amazing.
What I’m doing with my life
Enthusiastically saying hi to other people's dogs. Teaching myself Spanish through Duolingo. Suddenly remembering who our President is and dying a little inside.
I’m really good at
Remembering inane facts. I will help you dominate trivia night.

Coming up with plausible excuses to say, "That was way harsh, Tai."

The New York Times Crossword. Cooking.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm not entirely sure, though the most common two things I've been told are that I look like Tobey Maguire (this has not happened since approximately 2014), and that people like my bow tie (if I happen to be wearing a bow tie at the time).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
The Perks of Being a Wallflower, The World Without Us, His Dark Materials, The Phantom Tollbooth, The Things They Carried, Waiting For Godot, Angels In America, The Pillowman, Jane Eyre

Current read: "Born a Crime" by Trevor Noah

The Apartment, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Mad Max Fury Road, Bringing Up Baby, The Philadelphia Story, Tootsie, Some Like It Hot, Before Sunset

Favorite recent film: Wonder Woman (though I haven't been to many recent films tbh)

Tom Waits, Elliott Smith, Kate Bush, Leonard Cohen, Robyn, Prince, the Replacements, the Hold Steady, Kate Bush, My Chemical Romance, Patti Smith

Currently listening to Lorde's new album until forever

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, Jane the Virgin, iZombie, The Good Place, John Oliver, South Park, Archer, Bob's Burgers

Currently watching the original run of "Twin Peaks"

Yogurt, granola, rice pudding, vegetable lasagna, kefir, coffee, strawberry rhubarb pie, ale. Milksteak. I want to bake more than I do.
Six things I could never do without
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Just. Just. Just the fucking PRESIDENT, man. Just. Fuck.

Also dogs. Because dogs.
On a typical Friday night I am
Usually decompressing at home with a beer and Netflix. Sometimes seeing something at the AFI Silver. I'm always open for a night out!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I really want to get a tattoo, but know that I am too indecisive to be sure what I'd want, so I will never get one.
You should message me if
...you'd like to practice your German or French or Spanish, even though I am very rusty.
…you have plans to fight the patriarchy et al. and need someone to assist you.
…you just want to cuddle sometime.
...you think we could be friends, whether or not you think we'd be a match, to use their words.
The two of us
