Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a dual British/American citizen. You can't really tell, except
that I say "garage" like "ga-ridge" and "strawberry" like
"stror-brie". Well, that and my monocle.
I grew up in California: South Bay, Silicon Valley. So, I'm a
geeky/uber-liberal Californian, not a surfing/aspiring actor
Californian. This also means that DC weather makes me miserable 6
months out of the year.
I studied international peace and conflict resolution, the softer
side of international relations, trying to help people hold hands
and sing kumbaya. My specific area of interest is Turkey. At the
moment, however, I find myself doing tech stuff for a financial
company. C'est la vie.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working for the man. I haven't found a way to make the hippy-dippy
peacenik stuff I went to school for pay the bills yet.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
-using hot glue
-remembering song lyrics
-making fruit smoothies
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Favorite book of all time: The Three Musketeers by Dumas.
It has everything. Adventure, swords, hats, damsels, history. It's
just too cool. Followed by Milan Kundera's Immortality to
class up this list a little.
Favorite movie of all time: Casablanca, followed closely by
Aladdin. Both horribly sexist and racist in their own ways... But
admitting that is a good first step. Also Star Wars, Indiana Jones,
Life is Beautiful, Shaun of the Dead, Cloud Atlas, Boyhood.
Favorite shows of all time: The Wire, Madmen, Battlestar Galactica,
TNG, Arrested Development.
Favorite music of all time: Bob Dylan's Blood on the
Tracks. I am a little enamored of Jonathan Richman, and Cake
is my musical spirit animal. When writing papers I tend to go with
Rage Against the Machine.
Favorite food of all time: The "Going Home for Thanksgiving"
sandwich from Ike's. Perfect Dutch crunch bread, excessive
toppings, sriracha mixed into the cranberry sauce.... Sorry, I'll
need a minute here.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
In no particular order...
1. National Public Radio
2. Pho Noodle Soup
3. My computer
4. Airplanes- I like to travel, but I'm probably not patient enough
6. Someone to talk to
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
When C-3P0 says, "let the Wookiee win," how does that make
Chewbacca feel? I'd be kinda pissed. First of all, he has a name.
It's Chewbacca. And as a protocol droid trained in 3 million forms
of communication, you'd think that 3P0 would at least be polite in
galactic basic. But noooo. 3P0 could even address him in his native
language! He's got to be trained in it, and his voice is just
programmed anyway, it's not like he doesn't have the right vocal
chords to say "MRAAAAAAWLGH!" How nice a gesture would that be? How
much more welcoming? But instead, he dismisses him as "just a
Wookiee." The whole time, he's treated as a second class citizen.
And let's not even go into Leia's "walking carpet" slur! WTF is
that! She's supposed to be a politician, not some small-minded
speciesist! Diplomatic mission my ass.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Boardgame/movie night with friends and copious amounts of cheap
or pub trivia.
or, until recently, karaoke. But the local place has tried to clean
up its act under new ownership, and is no fun anymore.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I've seen Pixar's Up four times. I have cried every
I'm not ashamed....
