My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Welcome to my world. It is a silly place, and a thoughtful one too.

I recycle, buy organic, and do yoga, but I also like burgers and beer and Hollywood movies. What? (best read in an Eddie Izzard voice).

At my best, I'm giddy, playful, enthusiastic, and unstoppable.

At my worst, I'm a penguin named Eugene.
You probably didn't get that reference, but that's ok. No one's perfect.

Despite a minor obsession with words and language, in second grade I mispelled the word "of" on a spelling test (seriously!). I also just misspelled the word "misspelled," and if you were planning on telling me that then you should definitely message me.

I enjoy uncommon words; I think they're "good." I enjoy other languages and have been known to throw in a phrase in some random language just for fun. Sometimes I even understand the language I use. Bottom line, I will keep you on your toes and I hope you'll do the same for me.

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
By day, he fights injustice by having found a day job that actually makes the world a slightly better place, one person at a time.

By night, an aspiring producer with grandiose dreams of making the world a better place by making jaw-droppingly awesome stories happen.

And at all times, enjoying the heck out of it, noticing the fun little details that are everywhere if you know how to look for them.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making people smile, finding the bright side, rooting out the kernel of silliness deep inside a situation (sometimes not so deep inside), over-analyzing, and rambling.

Storytelling. This includes joke-telling.

I'm really good at origami. If I like you, I'll make your favorite animal for you.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
The brilliant radiating aura of supreme divine light that surrounds me at all times.

For a serious answer, you'll have to ask them. All of them.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
If you're like me, you're just going to skim this section. But just in case, let's try a few:

Books: Master and Margarita, any of the four Kundera novels that I've read, Margaret Atwood, The Count of Monte Cristo, and virtually anything by Bill Bryson, Bill James, and William Goldman (especially the nonfiction).

Hmm. My top three nonfiction authors are all named William. I wonder if that means anything.

I finally got to The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay and was knocked senseless by it. I mean hot DAMN that dude can write. (Good prose makes me quiver).

Everyone I know has either read nothing of Murakami's or everything he's ever written. I just read my second, so I guess I'm committed now.

Movies: Sneakers is my favorite movie. There has virtually never been a time when, if someone said, "hey, you wanna watch Sneakers?" I'd say "nah, not really in the mood." There are other movies I recognize as being weightier, but really, how often are you in the mood to sit down and watch all of, say, Seven Samurai? Actually that does sound pretty good about now...

Shows: Everyone's list looks pretty much the same here, so to keep it short, yes, I like those shows too. West Wing is tops all-time. Futurama has stayed pretty spectacular too.

Music: Mostly stuff that used to be cool. And I'm horrible at remembering bands, even ones I like. My bizarrely powerful memory is all used up on lit, movies, comedy, and baseball.

And I like showtunes. Yeah, I said it.

Food: I remember hearing once that fresh fruit was the most perfect food because it's good on all the senses. They taste good; most fruits are pretty to look at; they smell good; umm, some of them feel good I guess, but let's not get kinky just yet. And hearing. Ok, forget hearing. Still. Anyway, to answer the question, I like a lot of foods, but I love pasta. And my favorite vegetable is corn. Now you know everything.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. The winning dance. This is something I invented that has nothing to do with Charlie Sheen. Want to see it? Let's play Scrabble.

2. Books. Lots of books. Keep your kindle, I like pages.

2 1/2. Bookcases (Well...)

3. I am now studying two martial arts and they've done a lot for me. Seems like the least I can do for them is put them on the list.

4. People I love (though I imagine they'd object to being included in a list of "things"...)

5. Silliness (and accompanying laughter, chuckles, smiles, eye-rolling, jumping up and clapping hands, etc.)

6. Seriousness (for balance and because thinking is really important too. And sometimes you just need to breathe a bit.)

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Cut the word "about" from this header and you have my answer.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
These days I get up early on Saturdays to do kung fu, so I try to go to bed early on Fridays.

But on Saturday night I might be carousing with friends, taking in a play, or doing something I've never done before.

On a good night, it might be all three.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm in a shameless mood as I write this, but the little voice in the back of my head is telling me not to act on that. Stupid voice. Do you know any ways of shutting it up?
You should message me if

You've had it up to here with with normality, normalcy, normalitude, normaliciousness, normalitudinosity, and all accompanying banality. It's been too long since you had a real conversation. You have a good backup guess when I tell you my screenname has nothing to do with any Alighieri, and no, not Kevin Smith either. And of course if you're still intrigued by that penguin reference.
