Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I attempted to leave this section blank but OKCupid demanded
disclosure. I've been in a transitional period for the past year or
two. I am tempted to label this time "Maturation" but that is
contradictory to my belief that we are always maturing, growing,
learning or what have you. However, I am certain that what used to
be important to me is less so recently. There was a time when fame,
expression and making a difference were the penultimate goals of my
life. Now I've got a few eye wrinkles, sometimes I groan when I get
out of a recliner and strangely I'm overly concerned with health
insurance, organic produce, and cable. Something is afoot. Where
most of twenties were spent on a variety of stages, as I approach
my thirties I find myself spending most my time in a kitchen.
Strangest of all, I'm happier, calmer, and more hopeful than I have
I'll probably rewrite this whole blurb in a day or two but for now
I think this describes me far better than a list of hobbies
*It has been at least a month (now a couple of years-8/9/2012) and
I'm still standing by these thoughts. I will add this to the fray,
I think I'm a lot more fun than my sentences would lead you to
believe. Further, I'm also probably a lot less fun than I think I
actually am. Grains of salt or something.*
I am smart, cynical, and balding
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Currently I am drinking too much craft beer
for my pocketbook to
handle, discussing books at a monthly bookclub, cuddling a
chihuahua, trying to go to the gym at least enough to equal the
amount of nachos I consume, obsessing over nba basketball, acting
in plays when time permits, cleaning things, trying to create new
things and also attempting to sneak some time in to figure out just
what I can do for pay that will matter to me.
I’m really good at

and Steel by Jared Diamond, War with the Newts by Karel Capek, Neal
Stephenson's Baroque Cycle, and getting ready to read Mutiny on the
TV: The Sopranos, The Newsroom, Game of Thrones, pretty much
everything on HBO and they are so good about staggering their
series so that I can never cancel the membership. And the
Stewart/Colbert hour at 11!
Movies: Not as many as I used to watch. This week I haven't watched
any! I used to spend all my free times watching movies and working
at movie theaters and video stores. These days I am a little more
social, though I would still probably beat you at any movie trivia
Food: Breakfast is my thing. Since becoming a lacto/ovo vegetarian
I tend to obsess over breakfast/brunch
more than I
already did. The first and most important meal is my favorite and
there is nothing like enjoying Sunday brunch at noon with good
company and a cocktail.

are alphabetically listed below:
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The future. The book I am reading at the time. Evolutionary
biology. Kindness and its opposite. What I am going to eat next.
And why the #29 Tarc line runs only about once an hour.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Often working. Less often, but never enough for my tastes, enjoying
the company of loved ones. Rarely, but appreciated, I am raising
