I am a 25-year-old currently living in New York who is not, in fact, a 1/10th scale ninja walrus. I want to be a writer when I grow up--something that I should have done by now but am committed to putting off for as long as humanly possible and then for a few months after that--although right now I'm going through a bit of a rough patch right now. I still have a lot of creativity that I try to apply to my daily actions though. On my good days I believe that life is a piece of art and we need to approach each piece of it as creatively as possible. On my bad days I sit at home worrying about how cheesy that sounds and how little sense it makes. On my strange days I have an epiphany that nothing in life will ever make the slightest bit of sense to me and it is my holy mission to spread as much confusion as possible.
I am zany, cuddly, and funny
My eyes maybe.
Wait, that was an idea.

Also how much better the world would be if the word for palindrome was a palindrome. It would be great.
And finally, what it means that I'm the only person I've ever met that likes Seinfeld but not Curb Your Enthusiasm.
I caught the bastard trying to fix the deal when it was his turn to shuffle. So I think here's my excuse to reach across the table and nab half of his chips, seeing that he was cheating and all. But the fucker spits, right in my face. After I caught him fixing the deal! So I slug him.
Thinks escalated in the way you'd probably expect. He grabs a pool cue, I grab a bottle, he breaks a bottle, I grab a knife. Next thing I know I'm burying him in this place I know of, and God is telling me to be strong, you know, man up a little. I did the right thing and have to be strong about it was his point. And I knew that he was right, being omnicent and all, but even so, I started to ball out right then and there. Sonofabitch I cried.
I've never told anyone that I cried before.
Also you can trust me. With whatever. You know.
Also please don't message me if you're interested because our zodiac signs match or because we're both Jewish (which it doesn't say on my profile but I think was a match question). That's just prejiduced
