I try to live my life deeply and well. I want to understand the world around me, to try new things, and to see where life will take me. And that's best done in good company.
I'm an INTP, which means that I often keep to myself, and that I think too much. But I'm looking for good conversations, and people who can enrich the journey and remind me to have some fun along the way.
Research and teaching--and inevitable procrastination--keep me busy, but I'm also a fan of good stories, good music, tasty food, and the occasional nip of decent whiskey.
Keeping a desk that looks like a mess to everyone else but makes sense to me.
I follow Questionable Content, Girl Genius, Gunnerkrigg Court, and Hark a Vagrant, though that's not updating as much anymore.
I don't watch all that much TV, but I loved Firefly, am on-again, off-again with Doctor Who, and keep meaning to catch up on Breaking Bad and Battlestar Galactica. I watch old Daria episodes, and wonder how something so hilarious could be so corporate. And then MST3k, RiffTrax, and cheesy online review shows.
I listen to a lot of folk and bluegrass, but also smatterings of indie, synth-pop, and whatever the Magnetic Fields qualify as. I'm a regular contra dancer, and keep meaning to learn to play something one of these days.
I love ethnic food--thai, indian, ethiopian, and good green chile. Spicy food is a good thing.
Thinking too much.
Otherwise, hanging out with friends, or perhaps at a movie.
....you'd like to spend a few hours driving up in the mountains, and seeing what we might find.
...you like making snarky comments when you watch movies, but wish you had someone to listen to them.
