My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Lawyer cum nerd cum coffee addict cum professional side-burn sporter cum angry black man.
That last one ain't true.

I'm a recently divorced recovering viking, so right now I'm just looking for friends for friend-like activity. You know, drinking, playing board or card games, and then drunkenly accusing the other of cheating and waving a knife around. And concerts and parasailing and amateur surgery contests.

Recently I was in Bloomington, then in Chicago for like 10 months, now back in Bloomington. I know where all the Starbucks are on the 65 and am like a shark, I have to constantly keep moving and, just like a shark, I'm keeping U-Haul's stock high.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Law! Working to set criminals free! Suing other people! Suing criminals! Setting other people free!

I read far too much philosophy for my own good.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Getting other people out of trouble, in an amusing and blunt sort of way. I.e., "if you confess, I'm elbowing you in the throat." I'm also very good at scrambling eggs and steaming mussels and roasting chicken and petting my cats and drinking wine while doing all the above (except lawyering; lawyering requires scotch).

I'm also really good at medically diagnosing common problems, like gaping gunshot wounds to the chest or the horrible disease of being dead.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I assume it's going to be the ginger hair that I tend to let get too shaggy and poofy (which is good for hiding my soullessness...which I guess is only apparent on the top of the scalp).
Also, if I'm wearing short sleeves, it would be Thelma, the topless hula girl I carry with me on my arm.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books (which will be focused on authors instead of titles): Hemingway, Phillipe Claudel, Albert Camus, Umberto Eco, Margaret Atwood, Michelle Houelluebecq, Victor Hugo, P.G. Wodehouse, David Sedaris, Thomas Asbridge (for Crusades stuff), Salman Rushdie, Cormac McCarthy.

Movies: In thinking about it, I'm not sure I have many favorite movies. The Big Lebowski, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Jackie Brown... I'm blanking beyond that.

Shows: Breaking Bad, Futurama, Top Gear, soccer (which isn't a "show," per se, but it's on television so it counts), Portlandia.

Food: Larb, coffee, gyros, coffee, schwarma, coffee, roast chicken, and coffee.

Music: Beirut (the band, not the city), The Darkness, Foxy Shazam, Florence & the Machine, Tom Waits, Cocorosie, Amanda Palmer, Port O'Brien, ELO.
Subcategory of British Invasion bands, in order of Awesomeness: The Kinks, the Who, the Rolling Stones, the Beatles.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1) Coffee (see above);
2) My cats who tolerate me and once in awhile love me;
3) Cigarettes;
4) There is no item number 4;
5) Drinking cider while watching soccer (go City!); and
6) the smell of old books.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
So much time spent thinking about work, thinking about things I need to file, things to say to juries, things I should have said to juries, etc.

Also I like to imagine that one day I will be imbued with the powers of Magneto and/or the Incredibly Hulk and the world will tremble before me.

Seriously, if I develop super powers, you have about ten seconds between me learning I have a super power and me becoming a super villain. Plan accordingly.

Also, two things I've pondered recently:
1) My cats figured out how to open the fridge. You know that scene in Jurassic Park, when the guy is hunting the raptors but realizes (too late) that they're hunting him, and he calls one a clever girl, and it eats him? That's me. My cats are EVOLVING in ways that will prohibit me from owning lunchmeat. And
2) Never, EVER click on the pictures marked as Similar Users (or somesuch) to the right of the profile you're viewing on OKC. That's where the 18 and 19 year olds keep their profiles, you pervert.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Doing various activities. Typically, alcohol is involved.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I invented the potato, but let Walter Raleigh take the credit. I'm generous that way.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You appreciate worthless, cheesy jokes; you like coffee (see above); and you dig sideburns.
