My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I like spending time in coffee shops reading books, but also the places that you go to before and after the coffee shops. Bookstores, mostly. Ideally this is how I spend the majority of my time, but in actuality coffee gets expensive and also would probably kill me if I drank that much of it. So I do a lot of other things, and also have a job, which really cuts down on the amount of time I actually spend in coffee shops (although it is good for financing my book habit).
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Learning as much as I possibly can about my immediate surroundings.

Constantly increasing the borders which define what my immediate surroundings are.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm more of a jack of all trades sort of person than a really good at one thing sort of person. People tell me that I'm a good actor but those people aren't casting directors so I really don't trust them one bit.

I'm pretty lucky, too, but I tend to get the bad luck mixed in with the good. You know, just to keep things interesting. I'm not sure if that really counts as something that I'm good at though, as it seems a product of circumstance.

Oh and once I won a state-wide storytelling competition. That's a thing I'm good at probably. It sounds impressive, at least. I'll tell you the story if you ask, even though I probably shouldn't.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm tall, I overdress in shades of black and grey, and move too fast for most people to keep up. I only smile with one half of my mouth, which depending on my mood becomes a smirk or a sneer.

Most people just notice the tall thing though.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
My favorite books were written by Neil Gaiman, Anthony Burgess, Albert Camus, Brian K Vaughn, David Foster Wallace, GK Chesterton. Some of those favorites might be comic books or poems and not like, novels. None of those are nonfiction, for reasons that elude me, given how much nonfiction I've been reading recently. David Grann and Sarah Vowell are both pretty rad, I suppose. Or like, Robert Graves, he's really great (although some of his ideas about mythology are pretty much insane).

I like movies directed by (and likely written by) Shane Black, Rian Johnson, Martin McDonagh, Joel and Ethan Coen, Guillermo Del Toro, Edgar Wright, and Stuart Gordon. I also have a fondness for bad horror and action movies.

My favorite showrunners are David Milch, David Lynch, Graham Yost, and Bryan Fuller. I think only one of those has multiple shows under his belt that I dig on though. This category suffers a bit from an adherence to my own weird self-imposed theme, I think.

The kind of music that was made in garages by people who knew too many words to describe their sadness and not enough chords. Also David Bowie.

Coffee, Gin, Whiskey. Although I mostly drink water. Hydration is key.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Let's just make them all people. I like people. Or I guess books, those are pretty much the same thing (full of stories). Three people and three books, maybe?

But like, interesting books, if I've only got three of them to work with. Same goes for the people.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Idioms. You know, those weird phrases that only exist for a figurative meaning, like "stiff upper lip", or "cloak and dagger", or "that dog won't hunt" (one of my personal favorites).

I find them fascinating. They're an incredibly common phenomenon, but are pretty much impossible to translate between languages (at least not literally) and can vary wildly even on a small scale, cultural level. If you have any favorite idioms I would love to hear about them.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Trying my best to make it out of the house and go see plays or try new restaurants or whatever. I'm not always super successful with this one, so sometimes it falls by the wayside in favor of Netflix and board games at home.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am terrified of oddly specific things. Like rabies.

Actually that is probably the only thing.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You have something to do or someplace to go in which you think I would be interested.

Or how about it if you have a dog and you want to let me play with said dog? I am pretty sure I miss my family dogs more than half of the people I left behind when I moved to Chicago. Not because I am a misanthrope, I just really like dogs, okay?
