What I’m doing with my life
I'm a lawyer, attorney if you're nasty. It's going pretty well. I've started a couple businesses that are going pretty well too. I'd rather be reading or camping or writing or playing but capitalism amirite

trying to learn to play the piano despite my likely tone deafness.

I was a union organizer for years. Co-founded a literary magazine. Wrote and performed some things. I co-wrote and produced a sketch comedy show. I've written some decent bedtime stories that need illustrating.

I take care of Rosalita T. Dowg. It's a sacred duty.
I’m really good at
I've been a good in-a-pinch wedding date: friendly conversationalist without being obnoxious about it, have good suits, love to dance but never too enthusiastically.
The first things people usually notice about me
I guess my eyelashes don't go uncomplimented. I don't know why I wrote that sentence like a litote. Are guys supposed to have nice eyelashes?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Get your gavel ready, Judge Reinhold.
Books are generally about left-wing politics and economics, philosophy, evolution and science, the American Revolution and urban politics.

Hiphop. I'm class of '94 hiphop-wise but lots of good stuff going on now too (ie I'm not a fogey about it).

I read a lot. George Orwell is the best. Keep the Aspidistra Flying? Get out of here amazing. Recently finished: Dead Ladies Project, Rumo, a collection of Anna Akhmatova, Imagined Communities, Turner House, and a bunch of John Le Carre recently.

comedy nerd. Stand up in particular. Mr. Show, Comedy Bang! Bang!, Broad City, 30 rock ehhh you know the list.

I need spicy food to survive. I can cook, but I mostly don't, frankly.
The six things I could never do without
Rosalita
words
beautiful people
memories of the way we were
scattered pictures
Light
The corner of my mind
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Comedy. People. The law. Workers rights. Social justice. Evolutionary science and how I wish I'd studied primates and maybe had become buddies with a primate and maybe we'd high five sometimes and groom each other before dates because we're buddies like that.

what would make the world more fair and just. Because more than anything else, I hate bullies. Bosses who bully workers, adults who bully children, a world that bullies whenever it can.
On a typical Friday night I am
Pulling the shades so I can work on perfecting my Re-Run dance without being dance-shamed by society
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Sometimes when spooning I like to be little spoon because it subverts gender norms. Sometimes I like to be little spoon because it's more comfortable. Either way, sometimes I prefer to be little spoon.
You should message me if
You are hilarious, confident, playful, and a smart. tomboys encouraged.

If you want to play backgammon, or take naps next to the lake.

If you don't think it's weird that I make up songs about my dog

you should also probably contact me if your stated position on fools is that you will not suffer them.

If you, like me, believe that V-Nasty and Lil Debbie's claim that "the rap game need [them]" is specious.

You think they should add Assyrian to the languages spoken.
