My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am a highly-empathic, ambitious-but-not-annoyingly-so some-day-entrepreneur with a non-negotiable love of polysyllabic-hyphenates.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I once heard someone say that software is the modern gold rush, except there's actually gold there. I think that person is right.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Lots of things! Basically anything I set my mind to...

Things like:

Geometry Wars
2048
Remembering funny quotes
Forgetting those quotes and trying without success to retrieve them
Critiquing HBO shows
Losing things
Logic puzzles
Singing
Making lists
Crossing things off lists
Making people laugh
Knowing random trivia
And Snood. I'm a world champion at Snood.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm outgoing and funny, and I try to always have something interesting to say. If we met in person, you would never guess that I'm actually fairly shy.

Well... it's either that, or my well-cultivated paleness.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: I like high fiction mostly, with the occasional political critique like a Michael Lewis. Science fiction of course - Dune, etc. but generally literature with a message. I just finished Neverwhere because somehow I skipped Neil Gaiman entirely (except for Sandman, of course). Now I get to devour his entire works though, so I guess it worked out ok!

Movies: I watch a lot of movies. I can talk about them for days. Although I'd have to say my favorite of all time is The Princess Bride, I'm well versed in the heights of the medium: Lynch, Polanski, Kubrick, and modern greatness: Aronofsky, Jonze, Whedon.

T.V.: I can also binge watch with the best of them. The obvious ones like Breaking Bad and True Detective, and the hidden gems like Orphan Black and Rick & Morty. Buffy, however, will always have a special place in my heart.

Music: I was classically trained in piano and voice for more than a decade, so I am all over the place when it comes to music. Andrew Bird, Jack White, Rachmaninoff, Sleigh Bells, Pretty Lights, Minus the Bear, YACHT, The Mountain Goats, lots of stuff. Anything that's good.

Food: The spicier, the better. However, I'm on a mission to try out every restaurant in Manhattan. I won't argue if you offer to meet up with me for the first time at Per Se.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Teh Int4rnets
My PS3
Good Conversation
A Challenge
Those I Love

I know that's only 5 things, but I think that about covers the necessities...

(o rite, sex.)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I hate to be trite, but I spend a lot of time thinking about everything! I read the news. I read about science, economics, finance, technology, and various other things. I try to take in as much information as I can. I love to talk to people and try to make sense of their views when we disagree. I check my assumptions regularly, and am eager to admit when I've been wrong.

I mean, aren't we all just trying to make sense of this whirling, seemingly-impossibly complex grouping of atoms/probabilities/waves/strings(?)/something-else-entirely/all-of-these-at-once?

I am, but I can't claim to have gotten very far.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Probably watching Netflix. Saturday nights, however, are a different story...

I try to stay relatively on top of free and affordable NYC events and the ones that are a bit pricey but also just can't be missed. Concerts, new restaurants and bar openings, art shows, film screenings, parties, etc. I'm spending a lot of time recently in my new Brooklyn neighborhood and the results have been overwhelmingly positive so far! (There's a bar... with a TARDIS in it. It's even bigger on the inside.)

Or, alternatively, I might be at home watching Amazon Instant when the Netflix queue runs cold. Life is meant for us to enjoy it, I think, and to absorb as many positive experiences from it while we can. But balance, I've found, truly is the key to a happy time here. Everything in moderation... especially moderation itself.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Sometimes... when I'm home by myself... I order sushi from Seamless... and eat it with a fork.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're quirky weird and fun and you love cartoons and the internet but you also *HAVE SOCIAL SKILLS* and are looking for a meaningful connection with an equal human being in this fucked up, crazy world.

You noticed that in the above sentence I failed to use an Oxford comma. It irks you privately, but you accept and admire my stylistic choice.

You kind of think this cultural obsession with the Oxford comma is just about as played out as the old Chuck Norris meme, but you're willing to laugh at it with me, at least this one last time.

You're really, really smart and like talking about things that normal people don't like talking about for fear of stepping on someone's toes.

You're not looking for someone to watch animal porn with you and your girlfriend who's cool with it.
