Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
"This is my brain
And I live in it
It’s made of love
And bad song lyrics
It’s tucked away behind my eyes
Where all my fucked up thoughts can hide
'Cause God forbid I hurt somebody
And the weirdest thing about a mind
Is that every answer that you find
Is the basis of a brand new cliché"
-- Tim Minchin, "Not Perfect"
Hi there, I'm Cody. I like puns and wit, learning and knowing, and
think that there's something really cool about the stars.
I don't take myself seriously, but I do take things
What about you?
NOTE: I am privileged. Very privileged, in fact. I am white, I am
male, I am straight, I am cis, I am able-bodied, and I am a million
other things I've never even considered, all of which make my life
extremely easy by default. Though it is by no means your
responsibility to do so, please feel free to remind me when I
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Quite a bit of breathing, with a little bit of sleep and eating
I want to do something useful, and I'm working to achieve that end.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Puns and reactions.
Seriously, 95% of when I manage to be cool is when things happen
and I react to them. And like 4% is when I make a pun.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: I'm a huge fan of biographies and popular nonfiction in the
manner of Jon Ronson, A.J. Jacobs, and Malcolm Gladwell. My
favorite series is The Dresden Files by Jim Butcher, my favorite
book is American Gods by Neil Gaiman. My favorite "classic" is The
Great Gatsby, which affected the way I consume stuff more than any
other book. Honestly, there are too many to name (or rather, too
many for me to remember).
Movies: My favorite movie is Cloud Atlas (though I fully
acknowledge its problematic aspects). I enjoy a fairly large mix of
stuff, though big sweeping epic smart movies with huge themes tend
to be my favorite.
TV: Mostly the History Channel before it turned into the Exact
Opposite of History Plus People Doing Weird Jobs Channel. I enjoy
all the typical critical darlings, Breaking Bad, The West Wing,
yada yada. I'm beginning to think The Office is my favorite
Music: My taste is very eclectic, which isn't to say it's any good.
I enjoy everything from 40's big band and swing to hardcore rap and
top 40 pop. I like most every genre except metal and its
derivatives and most modern country, around since Keith
I really enjoy musicals. Like a lot. My favorites are Les
Miserables and Next to Normal.
Food: Yes, I like it. Indian and Italian are favorites.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Phone (I can access all of recorded human history, knowledge,
and a good chunk of the people on earth in a thing the size of one
of those little plastic things of tissues you buy.)
2. New people for a short period (This doesn't mean I don't want to
meet new people for long periods, but there's something nice about
a few momentary interactions that give you great insight.)
3. Memory foam (My god this stuff is amazing.)
5. Cable (It's one of the few things a lot of people are drifting
away from that I want to keep.)
6. Luxury (I am an unabashed lover of all things luxurious, and one
of my requirements for life is nice dinners and material goods.)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
