My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Odd bits:

I love music. Former Theory and Composition nerd.

Sleep schedule bad. Sleep good.
Oscar Wilde good. [Silly] eponymous laws also good.

I like snow, but dislike all the bitter cold that so often accompanies it. So this winter was fun.

I will never outgrow swing sets.

I'm the absent-minded professor type.

I have a little more under the surface than most might think; like Mike, from SLC Punk. (Yes, I mean I'm a nerd who likes mosh pits. Hey! They're going to shoot a sequel!)

Many of my political views are based on the radical idea of sharing.

It's not a label I wear, but you could call me a secular humanist. Or a pastafarian. Or Tim. There are some who call me Tim.

I'm an INFJ, which is apparently 1% of the population, and 99% of people who care about their Myers-Briggs personality type (tell me I'm not the only one who's noticed this).
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I've spent the last three years paying rent by telling gamers what they need for that sweet new machine, grannies where the power button is, and your average joe con artist that no, stealing Comcast from the coffee shop 3 blocks over isn't as easy as you think it's going to be. I've become an expert in playing 20 questions.

Now, I spend my 9-5 somewhere between saving the world and supporting bureaucracy through the private sector, depending on who in the company you ask (I tend towards the latter). I'm grateful that I could move out here with a steady paycheck in place, but I'm already looking towards going back to school. I'm fascinated by human behavior for all that, and so I have plans to study the brain. BRAINS! (Obligatory zombie reference satisfied.) Side note: it may not be the best job, but as we're working late, my boss just brought me a beer; life could be worse.

Back in Minnesota I volunteered for the Haunted Basement, an art gallery-run haunted house that I'll back as the best of its kind; well worth the inevitable black lung.
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." - from a friend traveling overseas, going through withdrawls. I love my friends.

making people laugh. Dry wit and goofiness are my specialties.

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 from Minnesota, but that Minnesota Nice passive aggression never properly set in. I am rather blunt.

A coworker asked me if all of my t-shirts were band shirts. Ch'yeah! As if! Look at that styling Batman t-shirt.

Doomtree Blowout is 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.

Recently I've been thinking about how the word adventure has become diluted. I told someone I was driving up to Seattle for a music festival: "Sounds like an adventure!" A three hour road trip now qualifies as an adventure? We need a few honest swashbucklers to remind folk of how it's done.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
The answer used to be "working," but now I rock a 9-5. New city, so now I need to find restaurants, bars, music venues, and a climbing gym to replace my favorites from my old town. I'm turning into a hermit in the absence of this knowledge, but I do like OMSI After Dark.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I miss old/past/quirky site features, like friend percentages and Crazy Blind Date, which -- the only time I tried to use it -- countered my date suggestion of the Minneapolis Institute of Arts with suggestions for the post office, Alcoholics Anonymous, Luke's Kingdom of Stray Cats and Tacos, and Paul's House of Pain. RIP.

Sometimes I can't tell if my roommate is burning sage, or getting ripped off by her dealer.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You want to go see live music, or weird movies, or weird, live music.

you like fluoride, vaccines, and your favorite medicine is evidence-based. As pixie dream girls go, I prefer mine with more science, less mania.

You're sick to death of coffee dates. Or cleverness.

If you're excited about the Higgs boson, too. (I've been told this is too old, so let's tack on BICEP and the gravity waves, yeah?)

If you want to skydive or sign up for SCUBA classes, let's talk.
