My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am a boisterous yute trying to act like a grown up. That entails figuring out how to navigate life's absurdity. So far this involves limitless laughter and joking to mask the cynicism. It is, however, something of an ironic (idealistic) cynicism. For instance, the consistent advice I receive from my friends regarding my dating life is to a bit less George and more Jerry. I tend to do the opposite.

I realize that most of these questions are a tad self-involved. Let me thus offer a brief description of what I am looking for...
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
directions, cooking, laughing, trivia
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have a purple sweater with a huge pocket that I love to wear and I accessorize with glasses, books, and that odd smile you see in my photos.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Poets: Keats, Browning, and Stevens.
Novelists: Henry James, George Eliot, D.H. Lawrence, and James Baldwin. Jane Austen is a perenial favorite as well, of course (as Emma might put it). I've gotten several messages suggesting that I added this detail disingenuously but it's the truth, I am teaching a class devoted to her right now. Madame Bovary remains my favorite novel.

I also read a lot of philosophy (Nietzsche is peachy), essays, the newspaper, and magazine like Harpers and the New Yorker.

My three favorite movies are Annie Hall, Dr. Strangelove, and The Graduate. Others that immediately spring to mind are Swingers, Harold and Maude, Ghostbusters, and Indiana Jones. Not to brag - but I shall brag nonetheless - I've seen all AFI Top 100 movies! This was an important life-event that got me going on the path I am on now.

Currently I've been listening to Patti Smith (she's stuck in my head), that Walk on the Moon song, and Van Morrison. The top played songs on my itunes are She Drives Me Crazy by the Fine Young Cannibals and Jimmy Eat World's The Middle. My go to playlist is the Sam Cooke, Otis Redding, Al Green, Smokey Robinson relaxation session, if not classical music. Stevie Nicks is playing in the background right now ... Stand Back ... quite ominous for this site no?

For food... everything. Italian, French, Thai, and Indonesian are top choices. I've yet to find authentic Indonesian food anywhere other than Holland. Ralph's is my favorite restaurant in Philly. I would love to date a knowledgable epicure to teach me about these things.

I don't watch much TV anymore but just started Mad Men. Or maybe shows refer to theater?

And why isn't art a category? Courbet & Caravaggio & Bronzino are my favorite painters. I would like to make Florence my home.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Books
Museums
Ambition
Coffee (and coffee flavored things; esp milkshakes)
Obstacles
Accountability/Integrity/Responsibility
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
how to inspire my students and hoping they don't visit this page.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Drinking chianti w/ Bacchus (the shirtless guy in my photos) and reading some poetry or out with friends ... not as much of a party-guy these days. I think that has something to do with this thing called maturity. Once in a while I can channel my youth.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Hmmm.... back in the day my ringtones were the Bloodhound Gang and Savage Garden. I'd say that is in the past but I recently got the latter's greatest hits cd: Truly Madly Completely.
