My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I live in Flatbush, Brooklyn -- close to the neighborhoods of Kensington, Windsor Terrace, Ditmas Park.... I work as a waiter in an Italian restaurant on the upper east side. Trying to get a job with city or state government (sitting for civil-service exams) so I won't have to work nights anymore.....
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Outside of work I spend my time appreciating art in galleries and museums (e.g. the Metropolitan); reading the NY Times and nonfiction books (especially history, politics, sociology); enjoying lots of music (rock or classical, not much jazz) on my CD player....
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
The three R's -- reading, (w)riting, (a)rithmetic. Also good at navigating the city -- have been here almost twenty years, feel like I know the ropes pretty well (though there's always room for improvement).
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
An accent that they sometimes peg as Canadian, or New England-derived... I did grow up in (western) Canada.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Classical music -- any recording by "Deutsche Grammophon" label.
Rock... have seen "live" these rock bands/acts: Clash, Iggy Pop, Elvis Costello, Aimee Mann, Devo, Ramones, Black Flag, Steely Dan, Dead Kennedys, Motorhead, Fountains of Wayne, Juliana Hatfield. But I seem not to go to rock concerts anymore. (I do go to classical-music concerts, though.)
Am a big fan of Randy Newman, John Lennon, old (pre-1980) Springsteen, Lou Reed, Kate Bush.

In literature, I especially like poetry and satire.

Films: all Woody Allen stuff, Animal House, Serpico, Blues Brothers, Taking of Pelham 1-2-3, film noir, documentaries, Italian films of the postwar era...
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
exercise -- jogging, rowing-machine, cycling
the New York Times
*music* -- I borrow a lot of CDs from the NY Public Library.
books, magazines, pens, notebooks
seltzer water and diet-sodas.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
politics and government; the American political scene; art; New York City; psychology...
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
usually in the West Village, where I have an appointment on Fridays, so I frequent a health-food restaurant on Sixth Avenue in the Village... possibly seeing a movie at "Film Forum" on West Houston Street, or going to a museum that's open late on Friday nights.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Most people on OK Cupid dodge this question, it seems -- perhaps I'll do the same! But I'll own up to having an interest in religion, though I am a professed agnostic.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If you exercise a bit, that's good; joggers, walkers, bicyclists welcome. People "in therapy" are very welcome... as are gals that like to talk about politics or history.
