My self-summary
married to invisible_hand. really just keeping this profile so when my friends send me links to the profiles of terrible people they want to date, I can see them.


the other day i found a folder on my hard drive that i have no memory of making. it was named "IMPORTANT" and inside it was just this picture.
that sums me up.

i'm filling this out slowly.

EDIT: i finally realized that if you are viewing this with the okcupid mobile app, links in profiles don't show up. so after getting several confusing messages, when i say "this picture", i am not talking about my own picture. the picture in the IMPORTANT folder is a really happy baby possum in a sink. sinkpossum.jpg.
What I’m doing with my life
living in deep ellum in a loft that used to be a recording studio. trying to decide what's the most elegant solution to having a huge glass window in the wall between my bedroom and living room.

UPDATE: having 7' by 4' canvas print being shipped to me from the czech republic. that'll do. UPDATE to the UPDATE: it worked well.

i have an ee degree and I was a hardware engineer, but after moving to dallas I'm now a test engineer. long story.
I’m really good at
taking things apart, putting them back together, and fixing the things I broke while taking said thing apart. mostly this is my car. sometimes it's my computer or various other things.
The first things people usually notice about me
invisible_hand: you only have three expressions. slightly amused, slightly annoyed, and completely emotionless deadpan.

invisible_hand: though i have seen a fourth now. the silently brooding face you get when you fail a bouldering problem over and over again.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
books: vonnegut, philip k dick, non-fiction books that teach me something. most of neal stephenson, cryptonomicon, currently.

movies: requiem for a dream, pulp fiction, reservoir dogs, heat, blade runner, serenity, memento, kill bill.

shows: ATHF, archer, battlestar gallactica, the trailer park boys, firefly, arrested development, frisky dingo, metalocalypse, the walking dead, house of cards, the americans.

music: nine inch nails, kmfdm, daft punk, wu-tang clan, portishead, ratatat, etc etc. basically the 90s.

food: forcibly gluten free now (causes migraines). favorites are: green curry, lamb vindaloo, black coffee, rare steak, avocados, coconut, pecans, macadamias, extra sharp cheddar, eggs over easy. and rutabagas. fucking mashed rutabagas.
Six things I could never do without
the six things i would be significantly less happy without:

a down blanket, a good internet connection, a car with a manual transmission, seltzer, and two black coffees.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
what did i originally come to amazon for and why do i have $100 of other shit in my cart already?
On a typical Friday night I am
netflixing, cat herding, gin drinking
You should message me if
i don't really read my messages.
The two of us
