My self-summary
I am a teeth-grittingly determined year-round bicycle commuter, which is not for the faint of heart in Chicago. I am a moderately picky eater but I constantly try to push the bounds of what I can learn to like. Avocados and mayonnaise are still deal breakers though. I am fortunate to be talented in a profession that is both lucrative and intellectually interesting. I have three spoiled cats.
What I’m doing with my life
I spend my days employed as a heartless capitalist, which is an odd vocation for a borderline-pinko-communist. It gives my cognitive-dissonance muscles a workout. Also it pays the bills.
I’m really good at
Holding up my end of the conversation. Finding the morbid side of anything. Listening to what people aren't saying.
The first things people usually notice about me
The outside voice. The salty language. The dark humor.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
The Urth of the New Sun, by Gene Wolfe. Small Gods and Feet of Clay by Terry Pratchett. The Thomas Covenant books by Stephen R. Donaldson.

Grosse Pointe Blank. Pleasantville. Mystery Men. Requiem for a Dream. Fight Club. Pirates of the Carribean.

Mind.in.a.box. Seabound. Covenant. And One. Lady Gaga. Train.

Pad khee mao. Tom yum soup. The hot sauce at Irazu. Anything with Sichuan peppercorns. Good bread.
The six things I could never do without
My cats. My family. My Wusthof knives. My rice cooker. My bike. My phone.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Is there a point to it all? I remain unconvinced.
On a typical Friday night I am
Occasionally doing dinner with coworkers after work, but usually just unwinding at home.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I masturbate. Doesn't everyone?
You should message me if
You can hold up your end of the conversation, particularly in the face of my regrettable tendency to dominate the conversation when I get excited.
