My self-summary
loafer. layabout. no-account ne'er-do-well. this is not the dating profile you are looking for. you can go about your business. move along, move along.

i am humorous, curious, and resourceful—an urban survivalist of sorts, but not in survival mode. i haven't had a "real" job since the dot-com bust and yet i do not have roommates, buy art from artist friends because art, and have a 750+ FICO.

i take long walks to look at old buildings. i have never owned fewer than two bikes at any time. i like when the streets are empty and the pie tin is full. i do not like when the streets are crowded and there is no pie. i am not interested in dancing unless it looks like this.
What I’m doing with my life
why must you mock me with this?

enjoying my alligator;
watching these guys.
I’m really good at
seeing what you did there.

working the angles, both acutely and obtusely.

getting into sticky situations.

getting out of sticky situations.

typos on teh internets.

keeping expectations looooooooooooow.

the art of self-sabotage.
The first things people usually notice about me
no one notices me, for i move only under cover of darkness.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
i go to local music/art venues, recitals, and to the symphony. i have a fondness for DIY musicians and DIY in general. my favorite living musical person is Wendy Carlos. i have a wish to meet her before she kicks off because she's getting on in years. i doubt this will happen. i also think Joanna Newsom is a pixie genius.

i don't have time to watch television but i was binge-watching before it was a thing.

i read books. in the pile are Atwood, DFW, PKD, Houellebecq, von Neumann, Le Guin, Dawkins, Hofstadter, Lethem, Womack, Morrow, Vonnegut, Munro . . .

i also read textbooks . . . on theoretical computer science . . . for fun. would you like to know why the Quicksort algorithm has an efficiency of O(n·logn)? no? fine.
The six things I could never do without

  1. customary suits of solemn black
  2. windy suspiration of forced breath
  3. the fruitful river in the eye
  4. the dejected 'havior of the visage
  5. all forms, moods, shapes of grief
  6. the trappings and the suits of woe
I spend a lot of time thinking about
sentence structure; em dash vs. ellipse vs. semicolon; analog vs. digital; Steve Austin vs. Bionic Bigfoot; baby bats; why you and i are greater than 10% enemies.
On a typical Friday night I am
self-employed. every night is the same for me.

that said, on Friday night i might be found eating Amy's frozen pizza (olive, mushroom, and ad-hoc pepperoni), drinking a good <$10 wine, catching up on NPR, and searching youtube for the twisted, the forgotten, the profound, while sitting in my cubbyhole, waiting, waiting.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
i saw you IRL.
You should message me if
you don't think homework sucks.

you agree that having an act that is together is overrated.

you call the wind Maria.

you are on antidepressants. anticonvulsants? . . . then the drinks are on me.
