My self-summary
Sharp, inquiring, skeptical, Midwesterner, contrarian and ironist, iconoclast, science nerd, museum-goer, puckishly witty, curious, analytic, goofy, curmudgeonly, yet good with kids and kind to animals. I'm looking for someone to stay in with, go out with, to end sentences with prepositions with.
What I’m doing with my life
I work in libraries and archives, particularly in a museum setting. I'm trying to keep some houseplants alive with varying degrees of success. I play bar trivia religiously, see movies, read books, crack wise, ride a motorcycle.
I’m really good at
I am a deep well of trivial knowledge, an excellent speller and am pretty skilled at being amiable company. Also taking naps.
The first things people usually notice about me
Perhaps my preoccupied, bemused affect? A sardonically arched eyebrow? That my sweater is on backwards (This has happened surprisingly often).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Movies: Old science fiction, new science fiction, silent comedies, almost anything with Cary Grant or Audrey Hepburn. Sometimes (perhaps often) big explosions and special effects really hit the spot. Guardians of the Galaxy? Awesome. Interstellar? Not perfect but I really loved it.

Books: Recent reads include a biography of Jim Henson, a bunch of manga, Wolf Hall and Bring up the Bodies for the second time, the Flamethrowers, Catastrophe 1914 by Max Hastings, Carl Barks, the news (religiously), the New Yorker, comic books, the backs of cereal boxes.

Food: Yes please. I will eat whatever is put in front of me and likely enjoy it. I'm not the most experienced cook but will readily jump in and try (and clean up later.)

Music: Lately I've been amused to find myself absorbed by Jackson Browne, Glen Campbell, Bobbie Gentry and others who straddle the country/pop divide, and i've also been filling up on Tammy Wynette, Loretta Lynn, and Dolly Pardon. Great stuff!

TV: I'm led to understand I'm missing some good stuff.
The six things I could never do without
I can't answer this at all to my satisfaction.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Old things, databases, spaceships, art, the apocalypse, dinosaurs, Legos.
On a typical Friday night I am
Not working.
