My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am somewhat verbose. Perhaps more than somewhat. I could quite possibly be excessively verbose. I just don't know.

I am compelled to try new Root Beer and Ginger Ale. I own a sousaphone, and I should polish it more often, but it is in good repair. I read voraciously and I'm always happy to discover a new author I enjoy. I occasionally get excited enough about the prospect of a peanut butter sandwich to chant a little song while making it. Mysterious Galaxies is my favorite bookstore and if you like mystery, science fiction, or fantasy, I heartily recommend checking it out.

I enjoy cooking, though I generally focus on one dish to the exclusion of anything else. I'm getting better about that , and sometimes I'll remember side dishes and salads. I'm kind of a spur of the moment eater, and I'd like to live within walking distance of a grocery store and a bakery. Have a small refrigerator and just make daily runs to get what I need for a meal.

I've got a book collection, it started because I'm not patient enough to wait for Terry Pratchett books to come out in paperback. I'd say somewhere around half my books are fiction, but more than half my reading is fiction because I don't re-read non-fiction books as frequently.

I'm Jewish. Mostly culturally, I don't really believe in G-d, but I like going to synagogue now and then. I observe the fast of Yom Kippur and the fast of the first born son, even if I don't go to services. Judaism is part of my heritage and it's not something I'm looking to give up, even though it isn't my faith. Really, if people didn't have fun following entirely arbitrary rules now and then, why do we have games like Simon Says and Red Light Green light?

I don't have a lot of experience dating. I've had a few relationships, but mostly with people I got to know before pursuing a romantic relationship with them.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Trying to figure out how I can edit this profile to be shorter.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Playing the tuba, when I practice, which isn't nearly enough. I could be much better.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Is that I'm not a complete jackass. It's on my label. I'm no more than 75% jackass by volume. (This statement has yet to be evaluated by the FDA. No, I don't know why I'm regulated by the FDA.)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I don't really do favorite books, some of my favorite authors are really prolific. My favorite authors are Pratchett, Gaiman, Douglas Adams, Connie Willis, and Vonnegut. This is not a complete list.

I wouldn't say I have favorite movies, but I don't have favorite directors the way I have favorite authors. There are movies I like watching, certainly, but I have trouble saying any of them are favorites. Shawshank Redemption is one of those movies that, if it's on television, I can start watching it at any time, but it's not something I find myself putting into the DVD player often. I used to watch "The Muppet Christmas Carol" once a year (Yes, I'm Jewish, but it's got Michael Caine and the Muppets.) but I don't currently own a copy. I've only seen "The Big Lebowski" once, but it has provided me with my favorite television dubbing line ever: "This is what happens when you find stranger in the Alps!"

My favorite shows are The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, The Rachel Maddow Show, The West Wing, M*A*S*H (after Frank Burns leaves the show. Winchester is just a much better character), and Animaniacs (one of these days, I will memorize Yakko's World). There are a number of shows I'd like to watch, like Firefly and Buffy (I have enjoyed the few episodes of Buffy that I've seen), but I'm holding off on watching them until I have someone to watch them with, because I think I'll enjoy them more that way.

My favorite bands are They Might Be Giants, Gogol Bordello, Regina Spektor, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Susanne Vega, Indigo Girls, Herbie Hancock, MC Flow, Talking Heads, Sara Bareilles Paul Simon, Flogging Molly's-- as I continue this list, I begin to wonder if I have lost sight of what "favourite" means. I don't know why I even try.

I absolutely will not pick a favorite food. I like variety. I don't have trouble with left overs, but if I could ever manage to cook just the right amount of food, instead of too much, I'd be happiest eating something different every meal every day of the month, with no repeating cycle. Well, perhaps, with a long enough period, it'd be possible to discern a pattern, but who keeps track of what they've been eating for that long. Thinking about it, I probably wouldn't make it an entire month without repeating, within a fortnight, I'd have forgotten at least one meal, and might end up making it again.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I'm assuming this doesn't include the 5 things all animal life needs (shelter, oxygen, food, water, and surprise)
Science Fiction/Fantasy - and I'm counting that as one, just like the book stores.
Paper and Pencil (or something to approximate paper and pencil).
Friends or acquaintances.
Clothing, I can do without shoes now and then, but I definitely need clothes. I sunburn far too easily to go without.
A watch. I feel kind of naked without mine.
Peanut Butter.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Things. Yes. Things. I'm perfectly capable of rational thought and this isn't the sort of thing I'd lie about. So yes. I think. Really. You have no reason to doubt me on that. It's not an extraordinary claim or anything, you don't need evidence, you can just accept my word for it.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I have no idea how to define a typical Friday night.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
When I'm feeling a little down I like to browse OKCupid to remind myself that there are a lot of awesome people who are single.

you would like to talk to me. If you have an argument to present about something I've written to explain my answers to and of the questions. If you have a Root Beer or Ginger Ale to recommend.

I'm looking for a friend. A person I can trade books with. Someone to talk with, about news of the day, food, anything at all, maybe nothing. Games are a natural part of conversation, she appreciates alliteration and assonance. She's lethally clever, maybe dangerous in other ways too, I don't know.

Someone to bounce ideas off of, to create worlds with, to explore with, even if said exploring doesn't involve leaving the house.
