For those of you who like fake assessments (which are what first brought me to okcupid lo those many years ago): ISFJ, Simic, Order Muppet, Slytherin. I'm nice though, honest.
OH, also: just in case you were expecting me to be this verbose all the time...I have a lot to say here (because otherwise what's the point?), but in person I'm actually pretty quiet.
Things I'm working on getting better at: cooking, driving, teaching, conversation, having a designated place for my shoes. Also not flaking out on okcupid people. (Sorry! I'm bad at messaging.)
But since complaining about the questions is itself sort of an okcupid cliche, why not just play along and reductively label myself according to my most recent tastes in food and media? It'll be fun.
Anyways, here's some stuff I've enjoyed:
Books: Fun Home, The Plague, Neurophilosophy, The Great Gatsby, The Thin Man, Moral Politics, The City & the City, Human Target, Watchmen, A Series of Unfortunate Events, The Diamond Age, The Picture of Dorian Gray
Movies: Blade Runner, Clue, Lawrence of Arabia, Memento, Solaris, Star Trek II
Man I really don't watch much TV, but at various points in my life have been pretty into: Babylon 5, Cowboy Bebop, Community, Futurama, Roseanne, The Simpsons, Star Trek (esp. TNG)
(I guess this list should also include Arrested Development, Mad Men, and The West Wing, but I'm increasingly ambivalent about all three, for various reasons.)
Music: Blondie, David Bowie, Deerhoof, The Delgados, Franz Ferdinand, The Go-Betweens, Lavender Diamond, Stephin Merritt, Janelle Monáe, Neutral Milk Hotel, Of Montreal, The Pixies, Pulp, Queen, R.E.M., The Rolling Stones, Schubert, Scissor Sisters, The Supremes, Talking Heads, The Who
Food: avocados, bacon, garlic, Indian, Japanese, lemonheads, Mexican, shellfish, weird cheese

Actually the main reason why I haven't updated my Official OKC Orientation Label to one of several more accurate options is that I don't want to ruin the context for the above joke.
The other reason is the whole "unwelcome sexual comment" thing. Many--indeed, most!--of the dudes I've interacted with here have been great. But some are creepy as hell. Perhaps you've noticed.
Well, this sure went off on a tangent. Anyways, Fridays. Yeah, I don't do much on Fridays. Moving on:
It's just that there isn't really a place in my daily life right now for smelly, noisy, drooly creatures who need my help to poop on the sidewalk.
Update: It looks like the settings have been simplified, and disliking dogs is no longer among my essential signifiers. You've won *this* round, dogs.
OR if you want to play Arkham Horror with me, since all of my "friends" have apparently decided they don't like it anymore. (jerks)
Heck, message away. I'm not actively in search of a long-term relationship, but nor am I opposed to the idea...Either way, I've met a few people off this site, and they've been nice, so maybe you would like to be friends, or just say hello? Saying hello is underrated.
