My self-summary
'When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro.'

INTJ, if you're into that sort of thing.

These are some things that I like that everyone likes:
Bicycles, bars, shows/live music, good coffee, dogs, movies, Portland

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!

Oh, also, I'm not very good at taking things too seriously. So if you are offended easily, things might not work out.

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 ok. But if you do that's awesome!
What I’m doing with my life
Basically I get paid to play with kitties and puppies. 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. I think 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 you, and having a job.
The first things people usually notice about me
I guess I'll ask some people and get back to this.

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'.

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. Also I feel like a lot of my general survivability is due to modern medicine. But most of the time only ridiculously attractive people survive the apocalypse, so maybe I wouldn't ever have to worry about it.
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?

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. Hopefully not just hanging out with my ps4.
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 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, and I'm not very good at texting.
