My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
After ten long, wonderful years I was forced to retire my faithful passport. Now I have a new one, virgin with stiff pages. Who wants to go break it in with me?

My favorite German word is “wanderlust”, my favorite French phrase is “nostalgie de la boue” and my favorite Southern colloquialism is “happier than a pig in shit.” My favorite word I've picked up in New York is "bodega."

One day I will have a small store that sells the best whiskys, coffees, and tobaccos from around the world. In my shop I will read and listen to my records all day and it won't matter if I sell anything or not.

ADDENDUM: I've been told that "everyone lies" in these things. If that's the case you're going to assume I'm a) 45 years old, b) 5'3", c) married, or d) all of the above. I am none of these things.

I don't take selfies and I hate that word.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
UPDATE!: On Friday of last week I walked away from the job I've held for the last eleven years. I'm absolutely giddy about the future.

Working my way through a pile of back issues of The Atlantic and The Economist. Traveling as much as I can. Learning guitar. Trying to eat healthier, failing to do so. Getting the most out of my membership at the Met. Napping. Improving my cooking skills. Singing loudly and horribly off-key when riding my bike. Taking the trains to the last stop on the line and exploring the parts of New York never mentioned in Sex In The City.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Leaving them laughing.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Everyone tells me I have a wicked sense of humor. However, that isn't the kind of thing that is immediately apparent. You unfortunately have to get to know me first.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
YOU: I care less about what you love and more about why you love it.

BOOKS: I just read a collection of Gary Lutz stories that melted my brain.

TV: Okay, I realize I'm late to the party here but I just started watching "Breaking Bad" and it is AWESOME. Also, I have a really good feeling about the New Orleans Saints in the 2010 Super Bowl.

FILM: How is it that "The Graduate" is one of the funniest and most touching movies at the same time?
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
-Having my greasy-spoon breakfasts served to me by middle-aged waitresses who call me 'hun.
-Having my hair cut by barbers who know how to work a straight blade and keep copies of Playboy in their shop.
-Road trips, paper maps, and the smell of gasoline.
-Naps and sleeping in.
-Cash-only establishments.
-Taverns with dogs and stores with cats.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
If French guys sign on to OK Cupid and get confused when all the women say, "No douches!" in their profiles.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Watching "Friday Night Videos".
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My mother's maiden name was Thompson and the last four digits of my social security number are 1016.

Oh, crap! Forget what I just said.

Once when I was very ill and whacked out on Ny-Quil I accidentally sprayed contact lens cleaner up my nostril rather than nasal decongestant. It hurt a lot. I called poison control and the woman just laughed and laughed and laughed at me.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
It's been said a woman seeks a man who is confident and funny. Odd, that's what I'm seeking in a woman.

Do you have moxie? Are you proud of the stamps in your passport? If the right song is in your head, do you have to fight the urge to sing it aloud at the top of your lungs on the subway? Do you want to dance with me in the kitchen to the Magnetic Fields while cooking dinner? Does Edward Hopper absolutely break your heart? Do you think "Fairytale of New York" is the best-ever Christmas song? Do you think PJ Harvey and Nick Cave are the pinnacle? Can you teach me about opera, or wine, or a foreign language?

If your answer is "yes" to any one of the above, drop me a line. But I'd prefer it if your answer was "yes" to not one but several.

ADDENDUM: if you refer to yourself as a "princess" I'm not interested.
