My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
The rest of the questions cover everything important.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm getting a PhD in religion (I am not in divinity school. I do not want to be a minister. I am neither "religious" nor "spiritual." I am interested in how we all learned to identify ourselves with those terms.).
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm really good at on-the-fly humor, in person or in text, with people who get me.  Sometimes that takes a while.  You better like Star Wars.  

I'm really good at talking to adults (you know, real ones).  

I'm just good enough at thinking, writing, making music, and taking photographs to know how much better I could be at all of them.  

I like playing and recording guitar music, bike riding, going on trips, taking pictures, cooking and listening to music (at the same time, that is;  throw in a beer, maybe, and that's perfection).  
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm pretty nice. I try to give everybody a chance (as people, not necessarily as partners), and I try to reduce tension, because I don't like tension. I am aggressively non-confrontational, unless you're just being terrible. I can be kind of withdrawn (it's probably not you), but I'm fun once I get used to people.

My hair can be pretty striking, too, depending on the humidity.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I am very turned on by people who use language precisely and creatively, either to understand the world, or to make it more fun.  

I haven't done much pleasure reading in the last few years, but I loved The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.  I like Thoreau, and Stephen King's short stories.  I just spent a lot of time reading Michel Foucault for school.  That was great, and I enjoyed "Discipline and Punish" most of all (it's about prisons and political power, not BDSM).  I love Wallace Stevens.  I like Rilke a lot, though i haven't spent a lot of time on him.

I would lose my mind without Netflix.  It has brought me Archer, Top Gear, 30 Rock, Parks and Recreation, Bob's Burgers, Portlandia, Adventure Time, and A Bit of Fry and Laurie.  I was Ron Swanson for Halloween last year.  I wrote a speech,  made a breakfast utility belt out of Tupperware, and ate the food I carried in it. The second season of Little Britain is delightfully horrendous.

1/9/14 - I just discovered Mad Men. I don't want to emulate any of the characters, but that show is a work of art. Halfway through the first season, totally hooked.

I don't know how the music I like really fits together, but let's say i like classic rock, the blues, prog rock, and some acoustic, folk and experimental stuff.  Some, not much.  I have never once found myself getting tired of Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, or Stevie Ray Vaughan.  I have seen Rush in concert five times.  They are old, weird, and fucking incredible.  Neil Peart stands alone.  

Lately, i've been listening to Bill Frisell, Pink Floyd, Miles Davis, and the Black Keys (full disclosure:  I only like the Chulahoma album).

If you know what an Opeth is, we're going to be friends.  

If you know who Porcupine Tree, Steven Wilson and Bass Communion are, take me now.  

If you call YYZ Y-Y-Zed, you're Canadian.  Take me now.  

I'm not a big movie buff.  The answer to "have you seen…" is almost definitely "no."  
I just have other interests (that said, Star Wars, LOTR, The Big Lebowski, Easy Rider and Ghostbusters are near and dear to my heart).

My favorite foods are pizza, hummus (a term I use loosely), Indian, Thai, deli sandwiches and Irish pub food.  
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I just started mountain biking, and it's in the running for the most fun I've ever had.

Playing and listening to music.

My car.


A camera (although the iPhone takes care of that now).
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Hanging out somewhere, usually a coffee shop, reading for school. Usually, I go get a drink later, and continue reading. I like reading in bars.

Most of my close friends are very busy, so it's tricky to plan things, but I love getting together with them at a bar, in someone's yard or living room, or wherever.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
The movie Twister changed my life.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
"I like a strong, confident woman at the top of her field. Your Stephi Graffs, your Cheryl Swoopses."

You should message if (1) that describes you, or (2) you know the source of the quote and love it as much as I do.

I'm open to whatever you're looking for, in principle, but i'm a little old for games. If you can't make a date and keep it, don't bother.
