My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I've fiddled with descriptions too often to describe myself in "the best way". It's aggravating and ultimately pointless. I'd rather chat with people who accept me as I stand in this blue world.

I'm a tall, intelligent man seeking equally passion and wisdom in my life. I love to meet new people and share the wonders we've both experienced. I'm a man of romance (nom), confidence (working on it), and compassion (kittens are my kryptonite). I'm a vegetarian and an atheist by personal choice, but so long as you don't feed me a hamburger or drag me to church, we're cool.
I can't write humor to save my life, but give me a minute with someone and I swear I can get them to laugh - no, really! (I write so stuffy. Comes from writing too many D&D adventures.)

I am funny, nerdy, and lanky
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am currently in pursuit of a Ph.D. at Texas A&M. It's long hours and hard work, but hopefully I'll be the better for my struggles. In my spare time I've been learning how to play the penny whistle, sculpt and glaze pottery, and occasionally read a new novel or enjoy a recent film.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Cooking is a pastime of mine, and I do so love creating a tasty concoction in the kitchen. I make a fabulously robust Indian curry; I'd be delighted to share the recipe with you. I have many a fascinating story to tell, whether my own or another's, and I delight in making even the stodgiest person let out a chuckle at my jokes (clean or dirty, whichever's your pleasure...but I'm better at dirty).
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Many have said that I'm very tall and lanky. I have volume, not mass - I'm a low-density nerd. I've been told that I could almost pass for a college professor, with my slightly tousled thick brown hair, stylish spectacles, and inquisitive look.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Douglas Adams, JRR Tolkien, Terry Pratchett, Clan of the Cave Bear, Edgar Alan Poe, Sherlock Holmes, The Hot Zone, various others.

Movies: Hero, Lord of the Rings, Serenity, Jet Li's Fearless, Pan's Labyrinth, anything by Jim Henson/Pixar, Conan the Barbarian (naturally), Monty Python (or any British comedy), and *any* bad movie that I can mock with a friend, a la Mystery Science Theater 3000.

Music: I like a little of nearly everything except hip-hop/rap (of which I enjoy a very select few). But classical/opera, classic rock, hard rock, alternative, it's all good. I adore absurdist lyrics, though: Johnathon Coulton, They Might Be Giants....Animaniacs...

Food: Anything international. I love sampling new dishes from around the world. Indian, Chinese, Thai, Mediterranean, Tex-mex, Spanish, French, Italian - I'll try just about anything once. Sadly, most meats make me nauseous, though, which is why I'm vegetarian (still eat eggs, dairy, and the occasional fish/seafood entree).
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
This always bugged me as a concept - I mean, you can learn to live without just about anything. So long as you have food, water, air, shelter, mental/physical activity, you're good! So this is more of things that are important to me.

1. Laughter & silly/dirty jokes
2. Cats, Dogs, or something equally warm & fuzzy
3. Computers/the Internet
4. Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches
5. Exercise - this is a new one. Got started and now I can't stop.
6. People to talk nerdy to me
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
People - I've looked through many philosophies and often think about how they came about, their impact on society, etc. "If this idea became widespread and accepted, would society be better, worse, or indifferent?"
Science - biology, physics, engineering. I love learning how the world works. Mythbusters is a fun show for me, a nice replacement for Bill Nye of times past.
Movies/Stories - got a real soft spot for sci-fi, myths and legends, and movies that mix the two.
Art & Music - I love talking about interpretations of visual art and sounds, whether sculpture, painting, animation, music, song, or even just a new film special effect. "Are you pondering what I'm pondering?"
Sex - They said I'd think less about sex when I got older. Pah. I don't know what dictionary they used, but "more" is assuredly not "less". Maybe it's that I don't get to talk about it enough - I don't think about food most of the time, but then I talk about food with other people quite often.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Typically doing something different from the week of nonstop research and study. Nothing too typical: on my own I tend to stay inside, but with the right partner/group I'm perfectly willing to head out onto a dance floor (I need practice), go bowling, catch a movie, or another fun something (arboretum anyone?).
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'll give you three things:

I'm a bit (i.e., very) passionate when some topics come up in conversation - religion, social norms, science, etc. Not hostile to opposing views - I'll just talk about it a lot.
I'm a big fan of anime, Star Trek, role-playing games, nerdy conventions (GenCon, anime cons, etc.), Renaissance fairs, quoting Princess Bride/Monty Python, and geeking out about science & technology.
I still enjoy cartoons - been a fan of them ever since the Disney Afternoon. Gargoyles, Reboot, and Beast Wars ruled my thoughts for a long time after the shows ended.
