My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Odd trivia and sentence fragments:

I love music. Former Theory and Composition nerd.

Oscar Wilde good. [Silly] eponymous laws also good.

I will never outgrow swing sets.

I'm the absent-minded professor type.

Many of my political views are based on the radical idea of sharing. Secular humanist, feminist, skeptic, yadda yadda.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
It's been about six months since I've been back in Minnesota after a stint on the west coast. Still trying to branch out into new social groups and activities (arts, fitness, climbing, derby), as well as gearing up to go back to school.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
"Your hugs are pretty fucking baller. Like, if you ever need anyone to vouch on your behalf, I will gladly submit a glowing recommendation. Using the flowery-est, most erudite language to obtain the appropriate level of panache."

Many people say I'm funny, but some of them sound surprised when they say it. I never know how to respond to that.

If you want ridiculous trivia or abstract concepts oversimplified into analogy, I'm your man. I'm a badass of free association.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm a universal doppelganger: people regularly tell me I remind them of someone they know, or ask if we've met before. It's not a pickup line, though; they actually mean it.

The other thing people mention is the Superman curl.

Here's what I don't get: where are all these doppelgangers hiding? They exist in the perfect number so that everyone knows one (except me), but somehow the hair is still rare enough to be novel. I wonder if all the other Me clones are ninjas.

Doomtree Blowout is --err, was-- my holiday tradition.

Hummus, curries, clementines, berries, chips, Laffy Taffy. I love spicy food. I try to eat a diet that is low in animals.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Lip balm, music, and friends (the family you choose). I could be a pretty decent ascetic, but I am fond of shiny things and indoor plumbing.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
This comic describes what makes me a nerd. I like human behavior. I think a lot about science and social welfare, together or separately. I am, regrettably, that guy that will debate on Facebook, but I try to be one of the better ones.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Not limited to Friday, but nights in general: gym, comedy show, Third Thursday, roller derby, out for drinks, concerts, staying in with Netflix, a book, the internet.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
...you're sick to death of coffee dates. And cleverness. (If you have a good case for either, but at least got the reference, well done.)

You strike a balance between eying your own mortality and orthorexia.

I'm looking for something long term, but I can do something casual. I can't do NSA "boyfriend experience." All the best to those who are looking for that, but the in-between doesn't work for me. I'd prefer not to appear so negative, but I hope this saves everyone some time.
