The first job I ever applied for was that of a baker's assistant. When I was 10. I got the job, but he paid me in cupcakes. In high school, I organized a "Calvin Ball" tournament, and everybody won. As a sophomore in college, I posed as a gospel singer in order to earn a way into a Choir that was doing a us tour just to get a free trip to Chicago so that I could comfort my best friend, who was having a hard time in college. The editors of the New Yorker have called me "a strong voice" and someone that they "look forward to reading in the future" in their rejection letters.
I don't always drink beer, but when I do I prefer to have my EpiPen ready, because I'm allergic to wheat.
I set out to pursue happiness, and it's taking over my life. It's the coolest thing ever.
I've never read Harry Potter, but i would own this book:
I love modernist poetry. ee cummings is a god.
Movie: Have you seen "In Bruges" I don't mean to be all movier-than-thou, but it's fantastic. Go see it. And "Lucky Number Sleven"
Netflix (who watches TV anymore): Mad men and House of cards are just amazing. I am dying to see the third season on Sherlock, and i love Black's Books. and "Yeah, Mr. White. Yeah, Science!"
Music: Counting Crows, Daft punk, Metric, Chanticleer, Zeppelin, Dave Brubeck, The xx, Modest Mouse, Eric Whitacre, Mumford and Sons, Outkast,and Tchaikovsky's violin Concerto in D major. If that says anything about me...
2) My pipe. It's a vice, I get it, but it's classy. And goes well with scotch.
3) Meeting strangers. I love meeting new people, and there are so many of them in the world!
4) This American Life. (I briefly met Ira Glass; if that's not exciting to you...)
5) Good food. The kind of food that makes you go, "yeah, I'm pretty sure this is the reason we exist."
6) The ability to remain calm in the midst of chaos.
If David Foster Wallace and Thomas Pynchon traded fisticuffs, which great author would be best suited to do the play-by-play and color commentary. (I was gonna say blow-by-blow, but that just leaves a funny taste in my mouth) (...god damn it.)
Have you ever got onto the metro and gotten off on a stop youve never been to and yelped to see what was nearby? Ok, at least you've been paddle boating at the tidal basin, right?
You should message me if you're looking for someone to enjoy life with, not for someone to make you happy.
