My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Long-time Brooklynite who's considering moving to Philadelphia -- just testing the e-waters. I'm an old soul with newfangled habits (i.e., a BlackBerry addict who wishes they’d bring back vaudeville). I thrive on witty banter, get into long pun wars and dig all board games. When I'm not at my responsible, grown-up corporate job, I teach and perform improv for communities who need laughter most. I'm a recovering swing dancer. I love to travel, and my sister lives in Belgium. I jump up and down like a little kid when near a roller coaster. I prefer bourbon to beer. I am equally comfortable wearing jeans at the opera or staying at home to watch TV in a ball gown. I'm deeply considerate. (If you stand on the left or stop at the top of the escalator, we may have words.) I'm kind, loyal and fiercely protective of the people I love. (And of strangers, too. It's my thing.)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I have worked/lived in New York for nearly 15 years and think I'd like a change of pace. Hence my Philadelphia exploration. What else am I doing with my life? For work/hobbies, see above. For skills, see below.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making you look good. (I work in marketing.)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My blue eyes, which most people assume are contacts. (They're not.)

Also, my tongue, which is planted firmly in my cheek. (I'm a snarky little thing.)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: This is tough, as I read voraciously but retain little. I went electronic when I realized I'd pack one suitcase for clothes and a backpack for books. (I never check luggage, even when going abroad for a month.) I'd average nearly two books a day and leave them in hotels, airports and trash cans to spare my back. Anyway, books I recently enjoyed: The Time in Between, Wool, The Submission, State of Wonder, Bossypants and The Night Circus. I adore everything by Carlos Ruiz Zafon and Jasper Fforde. And I am devouring the Game of Thrones series but have yet to see the show.

Movies: Memento, Roberta (Astaire/Rogers), Kissing Jessica Stein and Moulin Rouge are my old standbys. And I really loved The Muppets, both new and old. (But not the middle ones -- those were dreadful.)

Shows: Parks and Recreation, Archer, Elementary, The Americans, New Girl, Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell, The Daily Show, The Colbert Report, and, um, Dr. Who. Broadchurch was beautiful.

Music: I hate this category because it proves how terribly un-hip and non-namedroppy I am. I like all of it: singer/songwriter, 80s (I grew up in Jersey), Broadway, opera (not lying -- I actually go), rock, pop, jazz and bluegrass. Yes, I said bluegrass. As proof, here are the 10 most recently played artists/albums that my iPad chose randomly: David Wilcox, The Pajama Game, Frank Sinatra, My Chemical Romance, Adele, Jim Kweskin, Company, The Chenille Sisters, Plain White T's and Michael Buble. Please don't judge.

Food: There are five foods that I cannot resist on any given menu: duck, polenta, asparagus, pine nuts and cilantro.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Good grammar
2. Electronic contact (I wasn't kidding about the BlackBerry addiction)
3. My passport
4. Wit
5. My family (by blood and by choice), particularly those under age four
6. Lists
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Which country I'd like to visit next. The fact that I have a great kitchen but never seem to cook. The difference between being polite and being considerate. (I have theories.)
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Collapsed on my couch, unwinding from yet another hectic week and catching up on a week's worth of programs on my DVR. On any other night, I'm likely to be performing improv, seeing a play or having a drink with friends. (Fridays are exhausting. Is that a New York thing? You tell me.)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have a tiny fear that the song lyric about NYC should have been, "If you can make it there, you can't make it anywhere (else)." Yes, Manhattan is my comfort zone.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
-you are kind (yet sarcastic), decent (yet suggestive) and often described by others as "good people."
-you take pride in having quirky interests, because the rest of your life is so grounded.
-you can't imagine not being politically liberal.
-you are well educated and funny.
-you consider verbal jousting foreplay.
-you refuse to be deceptive or mean.
-you will traipse around the world with me yet be happy reading the paper in bed together on a lazy Sunday morning.
-you are ambitious, have a career and aren't embarrassed to admit it. (I'll show you mine if you show me yours.)
-you can sing a showtune without worrying it affects your masculinity.
-you know who Tom Lehrer and Garrison Keillor are.
-you intuitively understand that as flippant as the above answers may be, I am looking for a good man who wants a happy and sound relationship.

Oh, and please don't send me a generic, cut-and-pasted message that doesn't indicate whether you read my profile. In fact, it kinda proves you didn't. :)
