My self-summary
Would very much like to meet concert buddies, coffee partners, and brunch dates. I'm academic and I like academics.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a librarian so I mostly answer questions, or try to do so.
I’m really good at
I can go from clean-shaven to bearded in two weeks flat.

My skills include bookbinding, book repair, and book collecting.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
When I turned 35 I started reading Henry James and haven't stopped yet. Around the same time I lost most of my interest in rock music. When I got close to 40 I began to listen to a lot of jazz. That's normal, right?

Pauline Kael's still my favorite nonfiction author.

I'll eat anything on the menu. I've cooked rabbit, helped farm chickens and bees, and eaten horse.

There's no interesting answer to the question "What's your favorite TV show?"
The six things I could never do without
Can we compare lists of things we could always do without, instead? Let's share phobias and aversions.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
fully automated luxury communism
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Sometimes I used to shoplift at IKEA but I don't do that anymore.

I fund socialism.

I don't care about the beach!
You should message me if
According to the New York Times, there are certain ways you can tell if someone's lying on an online profile: "Liars tend to use fewer first-person pronouns. [...] Liars use more negative words like 'not' and 'never,' [...] use fewer negative emotion words like 'sad' and 'upset,' and they write shorter online personal essays." Clearly there's a strong correlation between lying and being charismatic and mysterious, so if you're a liar, let's talk.

Also, I would like to meet Margaret Atwood -- you should message me if you are Margaret Atwood.

I'm interested in meeting people with obscure motives.
