I like long underwear and weather that justifies wearing it. Also, cardigans.
Also, I enjoy TED Talks. One of them once made me laugh so hard that I spilled at least 7oz of milk on myself. A few weeks went by and I tried to find it again and I couldn't. Then a few months went by and I couldn't even remember what it was about. Lovely things are sometimes lost.
UPDATE: I'm no longer contemplating building any cardboard furniture. A friend of mine accused me of being a hoarder and threw half my cardboard away. A recent close call in regards to my apartment catching fire made it difficult to protest. Despite the difficulty I still protested, but he kept bending the cardboard and throwing it away. I was very angry, but after a few days I realized that it was much easier to move around and Oatmeal seemed happier, so I forgave him, mostly.

I've noticed that occasionally people put, 'That I'm on this site,' in this section. I do not agree with that sentiment. I am an unapologetic advocate of this site. I believe the algorithm functions well. This site is great not just for meeting people but also for having interesting conversations or sporadic mailings from a pen pal stranger. And the questions provide an opportunity for introspection. People shouldn't feel embarrassed to be on here, even if they are primarily here looking for a special person. This site is not a mark of desperation anymore than smiling at strangers more frequently would be.
You want to be my pen pal.
