My self-summary
I'm the least-qualified person I know to summarize myself; summarization of the self seems like the paraphrasing of a half-imagined book: I dunno if I can do it. I'll ask my friends to summarize me and then report back here, but in the mean time:

I crave interaction, shared experience, communication and expression. My friends and family are important to me, and I live for time spent together doing things that make us laugh.

I have views and opinions and I love argument. I will jump at the opportunity to explain something or examine an idea. I value integrity and the golden rule.

I'm dry-humored and often times very silly. I hug with furious agency. I'll try any number of crazy antics, flirtatious tomfoolery, or acts of kindness to make people smile. I'm wanted dead or alive in 24 states for my terrible puns.

I've discovered a lot of joy in riding my bike, and I like sharing things that bring me joy with the people close to me.

I’m really good at
I'm really good at doing voices and impersonations; I'm really good at cooking pasta; I'm really good at eating candy; I've been told I can make people laugh. I'm good at long conversations in front of the movie theater after an amazing film.

I'm really good at saying "ugh!" at things that I love. Or when something is just so amazing that it's...so...just, ugh!
The first things people usually notice about me
My obnoxiously loud shoes.

That's just a guess; I think this is really asking me what I want people to first notice about me, but I'm not sure what that is.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Cryptonomicon, The White Album, Hyperion, V For Vendetta

Gosford Park, Amadeus, The Muppet Movie, The Iron Giant

Bring up any of those categories to me in person and I'll likely talk your ear off.
Six things I could never do without
My family, my friends, my health, my hands, my feet, integrity, and the number 7.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Problem solving issues at work, novels that I've been reading, hypothetical conversations and arguments that I might have with various other people. Also, is Alan Moore crazy...or crazy like a fox
On a typical Friday night I am
Out and about.

On the better than typical Friday nights, I'm in, cooking for my friends, listening to music and deciding which board game to pull from the board game shelf (the shelf where board games are kept).
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Private things are for conversation.
You should message me if
You want to see if I pass the turing test.

You're looking for someone to bike with.

You're looking for someone to spar with.

You're looking for someone to cook with. Ideally not as an ingredient.
The two of us
