My self-summary
I think by most standards I lead a relatively quiet and nerdy life. I'm more likely to hang out in a cafe than a bar. I prefer Ravinia to Pitchfork. I play Scrabble more than video games.

I am passionate about my interests and spend a great deal of time researching them in my free time. I studied zoology in school; nature fascinates me endlessly. It'd be nice to find a girl who is interested in exploring the world with me. Particularly beetles.

Sometimes I dance to 70's R&B hits with my cat. NBD.
What I’m doing with my life
Entomology at the Field. My job is pretty neat/nerdy.

I'm about to start reading War & Peace. Wish me luck. (6/14/14)
Update: Haven't gotten too far. (7/5/14)
I’m really good at
Being a polite and courteous CTA rider.
Not using Facebook.
Dropping scientific knowledge on people.
Dining al fresco.
Correct grammar and punctuation.
The first things people usually notice about me
My resemblance, both physically and in demeanor, to Sheldon from The Big Bang Theory.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Mostly what I read is peer-reviewed journal articles. And field guides to various flora and fauna. Some of my favorite literature is Greek: Herodotus, Homer, Aristophanes. I did NOT like Infinite Jest.

I am a casual cinephile. I'm trying to slowly make my way through the Criterion Collection's catalogue. I appreciate dark and demented horror films: Audition, A Serbian Film, Human Centipede... basically anything Asian or European. I also have a deep love for David Attenborough-narrated documentaries.

David Bowie, Iggy Pop, Mott the Hoople, Jobriath, The Rolling Stones, The Kinks, Sly & The Family Stone, Marvin Gaye, Arcade Fire, The White Stripes, Beck. I listen to classical music regularly and go to the CSO concerts at Ravinia every year.

I'm a former vegetarian and current eater of ethically-farmed meats. I do a lot of cooking at home, and I like to think I'm not half-bad at it. Horchata on a warm summer's evening brings me great joy.

Also...

Mad Men, Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, Hannibal, Archer, Community, Louie, Tim & Eric, Futurama, Venture Bros., Monty Python, Sherlock.
The six things I could never do without
Trader Joe's... for sustenance
The Brown Line... to get places
Women... because I'm emotionally needy
The internet... to help me waste my time
Kitties... for their cuddly love
Cardigans... to keep me warm and dapper
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Did you know a man with brown hair is a "brunet".
Which makes me a brunet, not a brunette.
Doesn't that seem a bit homophonically confusing?

Also, beetles. I think about beetles quite a bit. Particularly the small brown ones that are difficult to identify.
On a typical Friday night I am
...needing a date.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I know and love multiple songs by the band Toto.

I know virtually nothing about beer or whiskey, but I don't let that stop me from drinking it.
