My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Congratulations! I am a potato. I do nerdy shit and theater. I write a bit, I read crapload, I act a bunch. also sing and play bass and flute and a little bit of guitar. I'm obsessed with stories and games and escapism of all sorts. I'm pretty smart and I like smart people. I can't stay upset around analogies involving robots or fight scenes.

I'm polyamorous, which right now means I'm very happily dating Maladira and seeing some other people in various ways. You should check them out, they're hot stuff. I've never understood why people would think that dating them stops me from being interested in other people? Or makes that interest fake or bad or something? But if you feel that way then we're not gonna work out.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm working on getting my physics degree at Merrimack College (it's awful, don't go there) with a writing minor--I want to get a job doing both, writing about science for a blog, a magazine like Scientific American, or pop-sci books. I really want to get a writing job--I'm not sure I could stand working in an office. I'm also getting theatre and math minors, because, well, I had some slots lying around and i didn't want to let them go to waste.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
My greatest talent is making things up on the fly--storytelling, unexpected conversation, improv, roleplaying. When there's a show going on at my school, theater becomes my life, at least when there's rehearsal (luckily, our schedule leaves the weekends free, so i scurry off to the city.) I have a huge vocabulary and, I like to think, a judo grip on the English language.

I've won some student awards here and there for acting and singing, though I haven't pursued it as a career or anything. Here's me in a cabaret from last year:

I also have a knack for explaining things (ask me about tidal gravity sometime), and I'm a bottomless well of assorted facts (I kick ass at armchair Jeopardy.) I'm creative, clever, loud, and never, ever boring. Oh, and I have, for a man, a stupendous ass. Seriously. You must behold it to believe it. Or just hold it. That'd work too.

i wrote this recently for a friend's birthday:

"let the tale of the anniversary of your birth be spread far and wide to the seven ends of the Earth and the five corners of the Sky. Let the giants upon whose shoulders rest the Pillars of the Firmament dance a solemn and joyous roundel in affirmation of the day of your creation. let the Fearsome Jellyfish whose Tentacles Encircle the Continents take a moment, a short break from his eternal preparation for the Vast Glub, and nod a polyp in your direction to grant you the recognition you deserve."

...that pretty much tells you all you need to know about me, really.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
A cocky smile, a sarcastic joke, good (if somewhat hipsterish) fashion sense, and stunning, deep blue eyes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
One book: "So You Want To Be a Wizard," by Diane Duane. Think Harry Potter, only way smarter, way deeper, way more interesting characters in a way more thoughtful world. Which is not to say I don't love some Harry Potter, but it's just not the same. Runners up: the Vorkosigan books, because Miles is literally the most fascinating, worthwhile character in fiction, to my mind. Certainly the one I'd most want to eat a meal with. The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Discworld, and The Magicians by Lev Grossman. I also love Hunter S. Thompson and I adore good graphic narrative--IE, artsy comics. Webcomics especially. And if you know MS Paint Adventures/Homestuck then really we should just cut straight to the huge sloppy makeouts.

One movie: The Princess Bride, the greatest film ever made. Anything Miyazaki is good too, and Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World is a modern classic. I recently started watching Kurosawa and was blown away.

Shows: Firefly is some of the finest television you'll ever find; Doctor Who is maybe less artistically brilliant but it's damn fun to watch. House is excellent, of course. And if you're into anime, FLCL is my all-time; Madoka Magica is the most recent series I've bothered to watch. I've also recently gotten into Game of Thrones, even though I didn't love the books--the show is fantastic. And like the rest of the nerdy Internet I'm mad for Sherlock. I'm desperately waiting for Breaking Bad to come back and I keep up on Adventure Time.

Music: I adore Harvey Danger, Ben Folds, Joe Jackson, OK Go, The Clash, The Mountain Goats...I could go on like this for days, so consider that the hyper-minimalized highlight reel. I like people who like to talk about their music (even if that is "like dancing about architecture") so if you can, say, discuss which of the very different versions of "Diminishing Returns" you like better then we will basically be in love. Fairly recently I've fallen hard for Bishop Allen and The Weakerthans. My favorite version of Hallelujah is Jeff Buckley's; I think people's favorite version of Hallelujah is a very revealing piece of information.

Food: I used to hate spicy things! That's changed recently though, I finally grew my big boy tongue I guess. I could eat sushi for every meal, and I really enjoy classy alcohol but don't know as much as I want to about it; other than that, so long as it's not bland or boring, it's great. Thai or any other Asian, French, Italian, Middle Eastern--it's all good. If you can find something weirder than that, even better!
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Why six, I wonder? I absolutely need my favorite songs; I listen to music while doing nearly everything, I'd lose it without them. The Internet, definitely; I'm a big RSS junkie, a thousand and one sites to check up on. I also don't think I could live without theater in my life. I need to be able to get onstage and perform for someone or I'd go crazy--storytelling is my obsession, and theater can make a story more real and present and personal than any other medium I know. I need a good book just to be able to get to sleep at night. I'm not a daily coffee person but I need a good caffeinated beverage once in a while.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I spend a lot of time--probably too much time--thinking that I'm not doing interesting enough things with my life. I feel like I need to make the world around me more extraordinary and I'm failing to do so. To be fair I also spend a lot of time thinking about video games, books, and the Internet.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Getting off the train to Boston from my crappy suburban college, so I can see my partners and do city things!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
No matter what I do, I always feel like my life isn't special or impressive enough, and that it's my fault.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over. dig on the brainy dudes, you want someone with a loud, shameless streak, and you're not looking for crazy amounts of drama. And if you want to give me four random words, concepts, or phrases, and read the wacky bullshit story I'll make up including them.

Please don't lead with an IM. You might be awesome, but if you IM me before we've sent slow-version messages back and forth, it comes off as creepy and kind of intrusive.
