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

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
Paralegalling. Enthusiastically saying hi to other people's dogs. Suddenly remembering who our President is and dying a little inside.

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.

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
Donald Trump, Rodrigo Duerte, Marine Le Pen, and the collapse of civilization.

Also should I get a tattoo and should I get a dog.
On a typical Friday night I am
Usually decompressing at home with a beer and Netflix. But 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 are still curious.
...you have fingernails that shine like justice, and a voice that is dark like tinted glass.
...you'd like to practice your German or French, even though I am very rusty.
…you have plans to fight the patriarchy et al. and need someone to assist you.
...you think we could be friends, whether or not you think we'd be a match, to use their words.

Icebreaker! What was the last new-to-you album you listened to? What did you think?
The two of us
