My self-summary
"When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro." -- Hunter S. Thompson

I like people who don't fit the norm and are a little off-kilter.

These are some things that I like that maybe you like too?:
Bonsai/houseplants, mid-century modern design, lowbrow/pop surrealism art (Juxtapoz/Hi-Fructose), science!

I make a lot of off-hand movie references and non-sequiturs. If you don't know what I'm talking about all the time that's okay. Occasionally I don't either.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a veterinarian. This is rad, other than the crippling amount of educational debt required to get here.

I also try to go to a foreign country once a year - New Zealand is next!
I’m really good at
Neutering cats, quoting movies, talking in a monotone, mixing cocktails, knowing spots around town, being taller than the average vet.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm a little shy, so maybe the fact I avoid initial eye contact (like we're trained to do with angry dogs).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Movies: The Big Lebowski, Indiana Jones (to a lesser extent the Crystal Skull), Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, original Star Wars, Blade Runner, Wayne's World, Glengarry Glen Ross, The FP, The Warriors, Wristcutters: A Love Story, The Fall, Brick, Hesher, TMNT (first one), Drive, Take Shelter, Moon, Another Earth, etc.

Music: BT, Faithless, VHS or Beta, MSTRKRFT, Yelle, Justice, Stars, Deelay Ceelay, Raveonettes, Beck (especially Midnite Vultures), Lamb, Michael Jackson, Prince, and basically any good party music that gets people dancin'.

Books: Murakami (where have you been all my life?), Vonnegut, Tennessee Williams, sci fi, physics/astrophysics, intelligent design

Shows: Stranger Things, Twin Peaks, The Kettering Incident, the Daily Show, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Always Sunny..., Flight of the Conchords, Workaholics is pretty

Bars: any Izakayas, Cardinal Club, Matador (the not el RIP), Conquistador, Red Flag, Rum Club, Beulahland, Club 21, Sandy Hut
The six things I could never do without
Sometimes when I think about the post-apocalypse, I feel like I would really miss hot showers and deodorant. I also have terrible eyesight, so it would suck once I ran out of contacts. I'm screwed. But maybe my medical training would make me worth protecting, like Herschel in The Walking Dead.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Wondering what other people are thinking, why people act the way they do and what sort of decisions lead people to their current situations (oh hey MAX blue line!)

I guess I like to look around a lot when I'm walking around town, like checking out trees/plants/architecture/street art/secret spaces/etc.

Stephen Hawking just told me that there are actually 10 dimensions, plus time, but that we only notice three because the other seven are rolled up so tight we can't observe them. Wait, what?

When am I going to get a dog?
What tricks I'm going to teach my dog.

Google and Wikipedia are awesome, just for random things like "the bloop" and the "Wow! signal" and neutrinos and tachyons and the Voyager golden record. Oh also, bummer about Pluto not being a planet anymore...
On a typical Friday night I am
Hopefully drinking at a dive bar with my friends, at a dance party, the Laurelhurst theater, riding my bike around, or Netflixing it.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Damn, ke$ha is hard to karaoke without having auto tune!
You should message me if
If you want to sit on my small balcony in the sun after work and listen to Nouvelle Vague while drinking Tom Collinses.

Or if you want to try things like trivia night, spelunking, cross country skiing, or driving to the beach and eating oysters. Or maybe if you wanted to try wall climbing, or bike to the gorge, that sort of thing. But don't ask me to do yoga.
