I'm currently inventing a biological toxin that triggers a prolonged and agonizing death in anyone who uses entrepreneurial buzzwords and phrases such as "touch base," "push the envelope," "disruption," "going forward," best practices," "outside the box," "move the needle," "task" as a verb (e.g., "tasked"), "data" as a synonym for knowledge, and so on. I'm in need of a sexy genius accomplice to help me complete this humanitarian act, which is where you come in...
Having a partner with a good sense of humor is important to me because mine is somewhat dry and dark (my sense of humor, not my partner); I'm very sarcastic. I never thought of myself as *funny* per se until I began teaching undergraduates and noticed how many laughs are evoked by simply saying what I (mistakenly?) suspected everyone was already thinking. The upside is that it's almost impossible to offend me with a joke. It's never "too soon," damnit.
Some interests: philosophy, mind(s), science, music, exercise, and imagining what a better world might look like. Learning useless but remarkable facts about exotic animals is always fun (I'm looking at you, honey badger).
Kinds of things to expect of me when we're together and I'm not feeling too serious, which is pretty much always: generating outlandish what-if scenarios, making up stories featuring you as the protagonist, and creating banter that you'll find incredibly witty, especially if you deign to participate. :)
