hello new followers // so glad to see you
i'm generally private, but here i'll talk about myself
What's your real name?
How tall are you?
just faintly taller than average? // i'm not conscious of my stature compared to other people until i can see myself in old photos
What's your natural hair color?
that mousy sandy brown that used to be blond when i was a kid
What's your eye color?
What's your orientation?
bisexual // or faux-enlightened even-handedness
Are you single, taken or undecided?
my partner is dogteeth, we are happy
What do you do in your spare time?
i like to cook and clean and invent new specific compartments for each little thing at hand // i like antiques, particularly 20th century housewares, little things our grandparents used before our parents built that better mousetrap for us // i doodle on the guitar and daydream and fret // i pickle and ferment vegetables on the hobbyist level
What's your job or occupation?
i want to be a full-time cartoonist and house husband // for the time being i work at a goat dairy making cheese
What do you like about yourself?
i don't like to fight // i'm sentimental // i can cook an omelette // on my good days i am hm... compassionate, either through the natural spring that comes from my mother or a stiff-jawed ideological even-handedness // though the flip of that is...
What do you dislike about yourself?
... i'm prone to muddling though with a paralyzing fear of strong opinions // a natural disgust for confidence or assertiveness that cheats me out of what could be close friendships with people different from me // if left to my own devices i would withdraw into hermitude // i'm not as curious, or as rigorous with my curiosity as i ought to be // i nitpick and can be a a bore or a snob // i have great difficulty crying // i don't like to fight
What did your friends notice about you when they first met you?
that's not for me to determine
What is your belief/religion if you believe in anything at all?
i have no inclination toward spiritual, religious, paranormal or supernatural belief, or the belief in any sort of conscious ordering form in the universe // pretty firm in that the natural world is what is, what we get, and whether or not that's splendid or dreadfulhas no bearing on what is and is true
Do you drink?
Do you smoke?
i use one of those tacky tobacco-less vapor things // i also live in CO so you may draw your own conclusions on that subject
What are your major fears?
standard sickness and oblivion
Do you have any dreams or goals?
i do want to be a good partner and make a happy home // just the right amount of success and recognition for my work is a fine second // comfort and flexibility, to try a new venture, to travel, to not worry about money, those are what i want in life
Have you ever had a crush or an ex?
too many crushes // i dated my one ex for a little less than three years and we're friends now
Who's your best buddy?
my partner, in love and life and work and play and being dreadful little dweebs
What's your favorite dish?
going to have to be up front that i will be a pill about "favorites." i'll give you a menu of things that i'm feeling at this moment // i distrust the concept of "comfort food" because of the whole perverted web of penance and obligation and virtue it ties the rest of eating to // HOWEVER // i do feel unusually contented making spaghetti, because i made it all the time in college and became very particular about just how i like it // for contrast, Korean food, especially all those cold buckwheat noodle dishes, is a wonderful unknown thing, and red paechu kimchi is god's own pickle // i like cheese pizza and i like ma po tofu // creme brulee with a small cup of good coffee and (not anymore) a cigarette // or coffee and croissant for breakfast // chocolate covered yeast doughnuts throughout the day // my grandmother's chicken and dumplings // any breakfast cereal while stoned // a pineapple so ripe it's almost turning into schnapps // grilled eel // an omelette, or fried eggs and ham // french fries (fast food style, peeled, oil-blanched then frozen before frying, with only coarse kosher salt), boston cream pie, pho with raw eye round, brisket and beef tendon and lots of fish sauce, dingy thin breakfast burritos with potatoes in them, east coast barbeque with Carolina (mustard and vinegar) sauce, a nice pickle spear
What's your favorite drink?
sweet tea, or coffee with cream and sugar, or a gin martini with either a lemon twist or pickled onion, depending on the gin, or bourbon (neat) or a big shitty frozen margarita with no salt, corpse reviver no. 2 when i can afford it and when i feel like impressing some nerd (never and never, though it is a nice drink)
What's your favorite color?
depends on what your matching it with // play with bold colors right up to the line when restraint is necessary, then edit edit edit
If you had a super power, what would it be?
speak every language

default taste is Coen Bros. though i love to be swept off my feet be something less calculated. A recent new treat was Lair of the White Worm //
What's your least favorite food?
generally annoyed by hyphenated food // i'm actually a picky eater! // hate the orange flavored sweets, hate green bell peppers, hate your favorite thing to eat
What's the last meal you want before you die?
it doesn't matter! i imagine anything will taste rapturous perched on the abyss, knowing what that means //
What do you drive and what would you really like to drive?
i don't like driving or talking about driving
