Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
--So yeah, turns out this site can occasionally work if you wind up
meeting someone who's pretty much an awesome lady version of you
and start a lovely relationship. Always looking for drinking
buddies and people who like belting showtunes at gay bars.--
When I was a child, I owned a t-shirt that read "Aquatic Birds? Ask
Unfortunately, that shirt doesn't hold true anymore, but that's
what we have the Internet for.
I'm a native Brooklynite who secretly wishes his home borough was
still spelled Breuckelen. Now I live in the Upper West Side while
masquerading as a mature and responsible adult.
Marketing reps for NPR, PBS, and Lincoln Center have told me that
my mere existence messes up their demographic trends. I fervently
believe that penguins should carry martini glasses with them at all
times to make them seem even classier. My library is made up far
too little fiction and far too many historical items. World War Two
era espionage cannot have enough books written on it. I think
permits to cary concealed Nerf weapons could be one of the best bad
ideas ever, especially on the subway.
"But alone is alone, not alive"
I recently purchased a complete first edition of Winston
Churchill's "The Second World War." Immediately after purchase, I
spent a good 15 min just staring at them and enjoying the old book
smell. I may or may not have a problem.
Whether or not I plan to read them, I still don't know, but damned
if they don't look good on my shelf.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Currently, I work in socialtv. I'm uncertain as to whether or not I
should have put a hashtag infront of the last word in that previous
sentence. Upon further reflection, three conferences, and too many
presentation modifications, yes; yes it does. I work in #socialtv.
I will inevitably explain it to you, then take a shot out of sheer
frustration. Owing to that, I tweet too much. I've recently
realized I spend more time wearing a bowtie and blazer than not.
The Peewee outfit has become oddly routine.
I'm an avid reader on the Middle East post-1938. And pretty much
I'm looking for people to show me bars in the UWS. I don't want to
keep taking a train downtown to meet up with my friends. Ideally, I
can find a good place and force them to come to me.
e: Turns out that bar is also my coffee place. And they only serve
beer. But I have a loyalty card and they appreciate my dress style!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Recalling small, unnecessarily irrelevant details about things,
memorizing useless statistics, and winning stuff on the Internet
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have a very long neck and no earlobes.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
-a device with Internet connectivity
-forcing people to use my middle initial (the necessary H.)
-my reading nook (not a nook as in B&N, but a nook as in the
place where two walls meet)
-see, now I only need to think of two more things!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
To what benevolent demon do I owe the joy of being thus surrounded
with mystery, with silence, with peace and with perfumes? O
beatitude! That which we generally call life, even when it is
fullest and happiest, has nothing in common with that supreme life
with which I am now acquainted and which I am tasting minute by
minute, second by second! No! there are no more minutes, there are
no more seconds! Time has disappeared; it is Eternity that reigns

Who spends the time and effort to send out copyright infringement

How is it that I can spend an entire day crafting pithy tweets and
get 0 retweets off of them, and then accidentally tweet a video
link without using the appropriate hashtag and receive over 1,200
RTs (including two major news sources) and 200 favorites without
If the Singularity comes during my lifetime, do I want to be purely
digital or have a robo-body?
(pretty much that)
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Out doing stuff, fighting a magical zebra, at home reading, going
to bed early. It doesn't really matter.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I've spent over $100 on Dr. John Zoidberg (from Futurama) related
expenses. I'm probably not done spending.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Well, unless you failed to read the top of the profile and did not
note that I am in a wonderful relationship (started off of this
site!), you're probably not going to want to message me.
