if asked, i'd say that among my best qualities are social awkwardness and finding humor in things that seemingly few others do. i tend to be reserved at first until i've decided that someone is worth knowing. i love plants and animals (they're delicious), thunderstorms, science and nature, reading... cheese. a good friend once wrote of me that "he finds interest in the little things, things that others casually dismiss as prosaic". i thought prosaic meant something completely different at the time. everything interests me to to some extent, even if i'm not always intelligent enough to apprehend it all. i'm just looking for someone with whom to pass out in the gutters -not that all trips to the library have to end that way.
