My self-summary
Hi. I don't quite know what to say here. It's tough to not sound self-centered or cliched, so this'll probably take some work. Suggestions or questions extremely welcome though.

EDIT:: So, I'm planning to fill this thing out with what comes out of messages or conversations with people. Its more natural for me to talk about myself that way, rather than in a soliloquy. Therefore, updates and revisions coming.
What I’m doing with my life
Well that's alot of ground to cover, but I teach, study,study,study. Bike. Swim during the summer, but that's come to a swift and cold end. I read. A little recreational programming. I'm a bit of a newshound. Sleep. I don't cook a whole lot, but when I do, its something worth having made. I'm mostly vegetarian, not because I don't eat meat, just because its easier to wash and eat fruits and vegetables. Curl up in a fuzzy blanket.

In short, I have expansive tastes. But I have surprising gaps in my music knowledge, and am quite open to learning to appreciate new music, if you can introduce it to me in the right fashion.

Thai, Vietnamese, Indian. Right now I'm having withdrawal cravings for dim sum and polish. If you can come through with goulash and a couple of pierogi, I think I'd sign pretty much any contract, sight unseen.
Six things I could never do without
A supply chain that safely delivers fruits and vegetables --- I'm not the "hunt and gather" sort of fella

A steady supply of things to read.

World wide webbery.

A space heater

Someone to bounce notions off of

A darn hot shower
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Big-picture ideas, where I put my car keys, and what the modern world would be like if there was a Planned Parenthood in Nazareth 2,000 years ago.
On a typical Friday night I am
Doing proofs
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Oh internet, how easy do you think I am?
You should message me if
If you happened upon this question. Seriously, who doesn't like getting mail?
The two of us
