I love to learn, share laughter and affection, and do things that make everyone around/involved feel alive. People's stories intrigue and invigorate me. I enjoy most humor, from puns to slapstick, from dry wit to the absurd. I crave all things new and unusual and love saying "yes, and!"
I'm an animated speaker, mindful listener, earnestly passionate, pragmatic idealist, gregarious introvert, lazy workaholic, curious hedonist, a bit of a logophile and big on integrity.
In the somewhat recent past, I toppled a dictator, moved across the world, and now spend quite a bit of time exploring the idiosyncrasies of life in San Francisco.
I like to surround myself with people who give a fuck, especially beyond themselves.
This befits my life: "He attacked everything in life with a mix of extraordinary genius and naive incompetence, and it was often difficult to tell which was which." - Douglas Adams
Thumb war -- haven't lost since I moved to the area!
Citing my sources.
Finding where we parked.
Making silly sounds/voices.
Shows/Series: Rick and Morty, Suits, Heroes, Once Upon A Time. I don't watch a lot of TV, although it's still way too easy to hook me in front of one. I also enjoy a lot of TED talks.
Movies: Kung Fu Panda, Inside Out, Zootopia, Mad Max, The Life of Brian, Paul, Red, Law Abiding Citizen, Fight Club, movies by Quentin Tarantino (Pulp Fiction, Kill Bill, et al), V For Vendetta, The Matrix.
Music: Mostly rock-ish, including (in no particular order): Queen, Muse, Explosions in the Sky, Parov Stelar, Pink Floyd, The Beatles, Tenacious D, The Blues Brothers, Barenaked Ladies. Also, Daft Punk, for making a movie for an album (Interstella 5555, with those smurf-coloured people you've been wondering about).
Food: Almost anything, but not a lot of seafood. All-time favourite: Koshary!
