My self-summary
I'm presently editing my answer to the match questions. If you've never done this it it a hilarious exercise in wondering what possessed you to give certain answers.

I read, I run (often in those funny looking toe shoes) and I'm working on dancing.

I like impertinent questions, inappropriate topics discussed in earnest, and the things that make people who they are.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a do-gooding attorney and I'm quite happy with my work. Representing the most vulnerable people in society is very rewarding and it would take a lot to get me into another line of work.

When I'm not working I'm usually learning something, playing games with friends, or getting out of my head.

I have just returned to the triangle after being on assignment to coast. If you have the scoop on all new restaurants in the area I'd love to hear from you.
I’m really good at
Listening - I love the stories that make people who they are.

Talking - Goes with my work, but I love to tell a good story and discuss ideas.

Back Rubs - I honed my skills in the great and mysterious backrub circles of the theatre community (I had to do something interesting before law school).

Getting Lost - I can get lost in a paper bag (I prefer to think of it as unplanned adventure).

Patience - I have a limited number virtues, but this is one of them
The first things people usually notice about me
I am told I am tall. Usually after I stand up.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Movies:
My favorites are Swashbucking, Science fiction, and Satire. With liberal definitions of all three. In particular: The Three Musketeers, Galaxy Quest, Dogma. I also watch a lot of documentaries.

TV:
I get most of my TV from Netflix these days, but I watch Doctor Who, Blacklist, and Supernatural. Law school ruined police shows and courtroom dramas, but I made exceptions for Boston Legal.

My favorites are Babylon 5, The Pretender, Highlander, and Star Trek

Books:
My favorite author is R. A. Heinlein.
Right now I'm following Jim Butcher, Daniel Weber, and Naomi Novik..

I perennially return to Terry Pratchett, and Neil Gaiman

Music:
I like movie soundtracks, Big Band/Swing, Musicals, and a pastiche of pop songs and metal picked up from friends.

Food:
I'm prone to ordering the thing I can't identify on the menu. I love good sushi, bad Chinese, and seafood.
The six things I could never do without
My Multitool
Good Friends
quiet contemplation
vigorous discussion
Something to do
Laughter
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Life, the universe, and everything

Usually I'm thinking about some kind of social science puzzle, reflecting on my last adventure, or plotting my next adventure.

Applied social science, feminism, whatever case I'm working on.
On a typical Friday night I am
Playing a game with friends, reading, watching a show or traveling about.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I had incredibly blond hair as a kid. We're not talking a little bit blond, bright sunshiny blond.
You should message me if
You like dry wit, earnest discussions, aren't afraid to be open, and care more about the company than the activity. If you're intense, great, if you're laid back, no worries, and if you're shy my hurricane can fit in your pocket.
