My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am not short, I am not tall. I will not eat green eggs and ham, I will not eat them, sam I am (actually that is not true- I made them for my mom when I was a kid).

I recently relocated to chicago from nyc and I am happy to be spending time with my family and my friends. Dr Suess's "Green Eggs and Ham" aside, I do love different things in life. I am both laid-back and passionate. I like museums and sports. I studied wine and laugh at myself so I don't sound pretentious when I order fancy grape juice. Recently I saw John Malkovich as a serial killer in an opera then went out and sang a Blues Brothers song at Karaoke.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am back in Chicago after a stretch in NY. I grew up in the city and the suburbs and I went to Northwestern so it is great to be back home. Being newly returned, I am exploring the city and enjoying it. Any suggestions are welcomed

I started a theater company when I was a sophomore in High School and I am still making theater and playing in plays. I act, direct, sweep up, write (let me know if you want to read a play, I will save you the cost of buying your money for a good drink)

This fall, I started my Masters at DePaul.

Oh, and sometimes I consult for booze companies on how to make better cocktails... my drinks are well known for their fun, complexity, balance, and an ass-kick of a good time. (I'm sure that somewhere in that description there's a life metaphor)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
making an awesome meal out of what ever is in the back of your fridge.

laughing at little things. well, I am good at laughing at big things too. My humor is not size specific.

I have had some funny experiences that I think will make you laugh
-like I was tricked into being on the game show "cash cab".
-like the time Mr T gave me diet advice (Twinkies)
-like the time Martha Stewart called me to be a guest because the scheduled guy got stuck in a blizzard
-Or the time I jokingly posted a Costco Coffin on Craig's List... and got a bunch of responses!
The list is endless but I think these are better stories in person
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am often told that I have great, masculine hands... strong and soft

My friends tell me that my look seems to change often... but maybe that is because they have known me since third grade so their idea of "often" is a bit off
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Music: I am all over the board. I guess the easiest indication is that my radio presets are 1. NPR, 2 Classical, 3 R&B and Hip Hop, 4 Pop, 5 Classic Rock... and 6 is usually static but I think it was a blues station when I was driving through Wisconsin. Actually, in Wisconsin it was probably a Beer, Cheese & Fireworks Station

TV: Anything on HBO except Nurse Jackie which I can't seem to get into but particularly The Wire and Deadwood. Cosby Show, Arrested Development, Breaking Bad. Streaming Netflix is getting me caught up - I just watched Chicago Code and laughed at this line: "learn to play with pain... this isn't Evanston, kid"

Books: I have been going back and rereading some of my favorites- Gatsby, Lolita, To Kill A Mockingbird and a few others I read in school. I've also been reading some plays, some poetry, and some pulp. Recently, I've been enjoying fun reads like The Hunger Games and my friend just recommended Ender's Game which I haven't started. Any suggestions that don't have "game" in the title?

Food: I like to cook and eat. I am a food lover without being one of those pretentious people. I am always up for a great Burger, and on the constant hunt for the best Brunch. But I am happy just whipping up whatever is left in the fridge into an exciting meal. Also I mentioned that I make awesome cocktails .... but I am not a cocktologist

favorite tree: hm. i like birch. and bamboo. but i see more birch in the midwest then bamboo
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
friends and family seem like a given... so does food and shelter.

1. iphone.
do you remember anyone's phone number anymore? and I use the iMap function a lot, although i don't mind being lost. and i do ask for directions

2. my library card.

3. Movie popcorn. must I say more?

4. punctuation. imagine if there wasnt punctuation wouldnt it be hard to understand what we were trying to write down what would you do without punctuation especially because I like to use such diverse types of punctuation ellipses quotes parenthesis semi colon colon wow just thinking about it makes me wish i could use and exclamation point

5. after writing #4 I feel like I should rest
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
tidbits such as
I gave the 8th grade graduation speech where I asked:
"If you have one index and two iindices...
Why don't you have one Kleenex and two Kleenices?"
It's been a few years since 8th grade and I am still wondering.

I wrote in a play:
"ever notice how most men face the spigot when showering and most women face away?"

If you saw Sade sing in concert, but felt like you had seen her before... would it be "Sade ja vu"?
(ok that one might be lame, but I literally just made it up as I am typing this. is it lame?)

They are filming a new Highlander Movie with Ryan Renolds??! Wasn't Highlander 1-5 and the TV Series enough to satisfy the demand?

How I like Arnold Palmers (the beverage) more than watching Arnold Palmer (the golfer)

Why are Chilean Sea Bass neither from Chile, from the Sea, or Bass?

The difference between sarcasm and irony - Alanis Morissette didn't help

How Macintosh destroyed the word "Genius". Motzart, Einstein, Shakespeare - yes. The kid who tells me to turn on and off my computer?

People mess up "you're" and "your"...Glad they don't mess up "our" and "hour" (it would make an hour of our time really weird)

any thoughts?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
never a typical, as i'm really flexible (w my plans, although my yoga flexibility is improving too)

these days, i am out with friends from 3rd grade (we are all older now)

Getting my Masters (not as in "Masters of the Universe")

consulting with local chicago, hand-crafted booze companies about marketing, branding, and cocktail creation.

do you want to go out this friday?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
um... i don't always enjoy capital letters (true)

Feel free to ask me personal, private things:

ask me about the time I was out drinking with a Giant and a group of Midgets. True Story... and Baz Luhrmann made me do it!

One thing that would be considered "most private" since I have never mentioned it to anyone:

Somewhere there is a photo of me in a 9/11 coffee table book where I am leading a candle light vigil in Union Square Park. ...Sadly I have never seen it.
