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 those.

By which I mean soulmates. Not whales.

EDIT: Scotland for a bit in August, if that explains why I'm perusing your profile, Caledonian friends.

"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 and marketing.
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 rarely show them when I smile. My usual smile is just kind of like a facial tic.

My traditional "impress you when you come over for dinner" food is coq au vin, which allows me to make the pun "Would you like to come over and try my coq?"
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 make southern-as-fuck food every weekend morning. Rum and IPAs would round that out to six, right?
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
Conscious and inhabiting physical space. If I am not the former, please give me a glass of water. I assure you, everything will be fine. If I am not the latter, call CERN for a hefty reward.
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!!!

Wrapped things up with my ex of four years in January, and I've told myself that I'm not getting into anything monogamous or long-term until, at a minimum, this coming January. God, that's now fast approaching, and I'm enjoying myself too much. So we'll just see, I guess. OKC forced me to opt into "hookup" but I'm way more into genuine friendships-with-benefits. I'll make you dinner and we can drink wine and watch shows or go out and play pub trivia. And maybe sprinkle in other activities, if you're down - I'm very GGG, for what it's worth. Just non-exclusively.
The two of us
