My self-summary
A friend once said "You, you're just different folk."

I'm atypical. I love culture and the different ways it combines and reconstitutes itself across time and space. I make it a habit to read as much and as widely as possible, and burn through new interests and fixations fast when I have the time and caffeine available. I am a walking wikipedia and love few things more than a debate that challenges my perspective. I live for the adventure of discovering new things, people, places, everything.
What I’m doing with my life
My life has changed more in the past year than it did in the previous five. Right now, trying to precariously balance social obligations and personal hedonism.
I’m really good at
Bringing up interesting and obscure facts in the middle of conversation. Listening.
The first things people usually notice about me
Massive Viking beard. I've been considering getting a horned helmet and a stein of mead to carry wherever I go. Also, tall.

I am on a quest for the ultimate burrito.
Six things I could never do without
Challenging literature
Good beer
Comic books
The sound and smell of fresh rain
The Gnosis
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Which country do I want to visit first? Am I a victim of the Dunning-Kruger Effect? Is that beer on sale?
On a typical Friday night I am
Typical Fridays don't happen so often with me. I like new experiences.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I've been to Folsom prison. Not as an inmate, but I was there visiting a family member who was. Not a place I ever want to see again.

Also, I'm an on-again, off-again practicing chaote, and if a religious tradition contains something I think is neat, I tend to steal it for my own praxis. Nothing is True, Everything is Permitted.
You should message me if
Full disclosure: I'm already in a loving relationship with someone wonderful, and not looking for anything serious outside of that. Yes, she's OK with me sleeping with other people. It's all about communication.
