My self-summary
(Just an FYI: I'm not paying for this service, so I won't know if you "like" me.)

I say "whoops" more than any person in the 21st century should.

Some of my favorite pastimes: doing handstands; eating vegetable base straight from the jar; reading, writing, (and arithmetic); obsessing about my Netflix queue; reading ingredient labels at the grocery store; falling in love with art; watering down my whiskey (because I like whiskey, but I'm a lightweight).
What I’m doing with my life
Writing, making desserts. Overthinking nearly everything.

I'm an editor by profession, but I still make typos. I'm not a robot.
I’m really good at
Making kale chips; capturing insects and putting them outside.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Easiest question by far.

Books: Tom Robbins (especially Jitterbug Perfume and Skinny Legs and All), Everything is Illuminated, Middlesex, Youth in Revolt, High Fidelty, Savage Beauty, Pride and Prejudice, The Brothers Karamazov, Cloud Atlas, Midnight’s Children, The Blind Assassin, Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World.

Movies: Japanese films from the 50s and 60s. Bergman. Bunuel. Wes Anderson. Documentaries (Helvetica, King of Kong, In the Realms of the Unreal, etc.) Belle du Jour, Grease, Being John Malkovich, Boogie Nights, Heathers, The Royal Tenenbaums, Breakfast at Tiffanys, Welcome to the Dollhouse, Sideways, Amelie, Ghost World, Greed, Henry Fool, Stanger Than Paradise, Woman in the Dunes, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Shadow of a Doubt, The Apartment, Trainspotting, Persona, L’Avventura, Frances Ha, Before Sunset . . . okay, I'll stop now.

Television: Broad City, Breaking Bad, Walking Dead, Flight of the Conchords, Arrested Development, Twin Peaks, Freaks and Geeks, My So-Called Life, Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

Music: Father John Misty, Courtney Barnett, Neko Case, Camera Obscura, Fiona Apple, Jenny Lewis, etc.

Food: I’m not a picky eater, but I don’t eat meat, and I hate olives and licorice. On the other hand, I am deliriously in love with ginger and I think butterscotch needs to make a comeback.
The six things I could never do without
Warm chickpeas, family, laughing, Baked: New Frontiers in Baking, Francesca Woodman photographs, serial commas.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
In general, everything. Most recently, that green vintage 1940s dress that I fell in love with, but didn’t buy.
On a typical Friday night I am
I'm not a party animal, in any sense of the word. I like films and museums and nerd stuff. I enjoy places that serve food. Inn Season makes my tummy happy and brunch is my favorite meal of the day.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
By definition, if I consider something to be private, then I’m not going to reveal it to thousands of people.

Oh, wait, I have something. I cried at least half a dozen times while watching Marina Abramović: The Artist Is Present. Apparently performance art makes me cry. Who knew?? (And I don't want to hear any smart alecky comments like, performance art makes me cry too...because it's so bad! I can already see those coming.)
You should message me if
Have you ever called your pet your "baby?"
Does the thought of a perfectly ripe avocado excite you?
Have you seen Citizen Kane fifty times?
Do you put cinnamon on your oatmeal and ginger syrup in your whiskey?
Do you have the ability to ignore your phone while in the company of other human beings?
If so, you're the guy for me!

p.s. I was raised Catholic, but most organized religions don't make much sense to me. Also, most of them, with the exception of Buddhism, seem fairly, if not entirely, based on negativity, so if religion is important to you, we probably won't be a good match.

p.p.s. If I don't email you back, please don't be offended. There are only so many hours in the day, so I can't email everyone back. I feel terrible about it, but I just can't. Sorry!

p.p.p.s. If you have a wife or a girlfriend and she still thinks of you as her husband/boyfriend, I am not interested in dating you. Thank you.
