My self-summary
I say "thank you", "bless you", and "drive safe" whenever I can. My soulmate would be somebody who is nice to waiters and deeply enjoys me telling them facts about whales. Not that I'm looking for soulmates.

"Lifetime learner" - sans irony. Obsessive listener of Radiolab. I SOAK UP data and I think the kinship of curiosity is the best of kinships. Audiophile, cinephile, bibliophile. I'm pretty ruthless at Risk Munchkin Cosmic Encounter. The cinnamon on top of a cappuccino is my favourite part. I'm Canadian - so when I spell, I put "u" in a lot of interesting positions. Whenever I read the previous sentence I think it oughta be a pick-up line.

I wish somebody would give me a tarot reading.
What I’m doing with my life
Working my way through a karaoke bucket list and offering soft criticism of people's ecommerce UX.
I’m really good at
"I do things like get in taxis and say, 'The library, and step on it.'"

I invented a surprisingly popular drinking game involving capguns, moseying, and Ennio Morricone. Ask me about it.

I have this poetry thing I do.
The first things people usually notice about me
I have nice teeth, and I never show them.

Like, yesterday: Best of Enemies. Watching Gore Vidal duke it out with William F. Buckley, Jr. is like modern politics in a microcosm. It will hurt your heart, though.

I hear I make a mean salsa, if you want to drink a lot of milk and get hospitalized for internal bleeding.
The six things I could never do without
I have really good relationships with my friends and family, and if I didn't have those I'd be crestfallen. My computer and my Moleskine are my closest friends besides. I love a good cup of coffee and a smoke [used to, these days I use an electronic doohickey that smells like strawberry Nesquik], and a few drinks at the end of the day. In my book, that's six. I'm happy to stop there.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What important personal and legal document I'm likely to misplace next.
On a typical Friday night I am
More often than not, conscious.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I've got a thing for Arianna Huffington. ; )
You should message me if
If you know how to pilot this thing! We've lost an engine!!!

You may have caught me visiting you and (if you're lucky!) liking you. I don't mean anything by it, trust. Just like seeing the world and all the people in it from the comfort of my office.

But, anyways, message me if you want to talk Infinite Jest, Mad Men, the Appalachians my sweet mountain home, the presidential tenure of Woodrow Wilson, Radiolab, or game theory. Message if you want to come over and play Catan or even more serious fare, or help us reinstate our pub trivia team. (We met all our best friends on here.) Message me or lyssalectro if you kiss both boys AND girls and wanna practice on us, because we're all about that, personally. And especially if you answer B and C, because we'd be over the moon.

Actually, message me, probably, because she uninstalled the app and I'll be damned if she ever opens her laptop.

Otherwise we can probably just admire each other from a distance.
