My self-summary
Do I have to?

I'm a professional writer and web guru who enjoys baseball, bad movies, good music, and the cozy feeling that happens when sitting in a corner booth at a semi-crowded bar -- light filtered by colored glass, a small lumpen candle on the table, an easy-flowing conversation in a liquid night. My default mood is silly. I take showers, so I've got that going for me. One time, when I was nine or ten, my friend dared me to urinate in my parents' humidifier, and I did. That might possibly be the meanest and dumbest thing I've ever done (not counting my stint in 'Nam). Sarcasm is fun! So is unbridled joy! Watch out for people who use too many exclamation points! And above all, try not be predictable: it's what the ninjas are counting on.

According to OK Cupid I'm less moral than myself.

I am listless, nocturnal, and incorrigible.
What I’m doing with my life
I work for the local alternative weekly magazine. I make websites. I hash (no, that has nothing to do with pot). I DJ a weekly overnight eclectic music program on public radio. I, sometimes, roll around on my back pretending to be an overturned tortoise.
I’m really good at
pretending to be suave, and then blowing it with a spectacularly misguided outburst of geekery, inanity, or backing vocals to Paula Abdul b-sides.
The first things people usually notice about me
Eyebrows or eyelashes, depending on their eyesight. Aye aye, cap'm.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
A) Anything by Nabokov. B) They must be very very bad, or very very good. Gigantic man-eating monsters are a plus. Ben Stillers are a minus. I refuse to indulge your baffling and insane obsession with Jim Jarmusch. C) I own thousands of albums and I mostly listen to them on shuffle, so this is the unanswerable question of the decade. But my radio show playlists offer a window: kusp.org/playlists/carpe/index.html D) Things not made of cauliflower.
The six things I could never do without
1) Words. 2) My iPod. 3) The internet. 4) The way air smells just after it has snowed all night. 5) Semicolons. 6) Haircuts.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Australia, people and their attention spans, the capitals of the 50 United States, rock-paper-scissors strategy, syncopation, and lists.
On a typical Friday night I am
just noticing that it's Saturday morning.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Sometimes I troll around OKCupid looking for my worst enemies, just in case they're really hot and I need to re-evaluate my personality.
You should message me if
you think it's crappy that guys have to do all the messaging around here. And you have no problem with going to a Lindsay Lohan movie for the sole purpose of loudly mocking it the entire time. And you know some pretty good limericks.
