My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Math nerd turned adventurous sometime between calc class and now. Culturally Jewish sarcastic New Yorker with a passion for bagels and Chinese food. Anglophile. Finally at the point in my life where it's ok to wear t-shirts with words/pictures/puns on them into work, and extremely excited about it. Intellectual snob; I usually attempt not to be too obnoxious about it, but e.g. if you have no books listed in your "Favorite Books, Movies, etc" section, I will probably judge you unless you're really really awesome in another way. Monogamish-friendly, feminist and all that.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Math. Biology. Adjusting to life as a grad student after living in London for 5 fabulous years. Trying to replicate various things from said life to make transition easier. Successfully replicated: having an actual kitchen, being surrounded by people with British accents, having a group of girls with whom to watch porn, pub quiz. Still missing: proper pub with Sunday roast, street with numerous sketchy shisha bars, constant drizzle.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Sentence Fragments. Scrabble. Crossword puzzles. Bad puns. Math, sometimes.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
The bad pun I just made, or curly hair.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Specifically: London Fields, Consider the Lobster, The Ground Beneath Her Feet, Jitterbug Perfume. Generally: Rushdie, Kundera, Hitchens, Amis, Foster Wallace, Caitlin Moran, Murakami, Anais Nin, Coetzee, Neil Gaiman, Tom Robbins, others.. Sex at Dawn almost made it onto this list--I think the content matter is really interesting, and I agree with many of its arguments-- but its unprofessional tone has knocked it down into not-quite-favorite territory

Movies: Withnail and I, Big Lebowski (there are others, but these are the most important)

Shows: Last Week Tonight, Orphan Black, Archer, Game of Thrones, Homeland, Dr Who, Sherlock

Music: Bob Dylan, bad 80's music, Trey Anastasio, Borderline-unhealthy obsession with Leonard Cohen, most things from before 1975

Food: Most things, but especially spicy things and raw things
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Coffee, Python, couscous, cheese, The Bugle podcast, my frivolous lace-up boots
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Sex, pigeons, literature. Extra points if you can figure out why.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
In NYC, exploring Princeton's flourishing bar scene, or at home on the couch watching Archer with ice cream and Bailey's
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I always used to judge people who said they were from New York and then when pressed, admitted to actually being from New Jersey. I am now one of those people, but I spend enough time in NYC to maybe kind of sort of justify it?
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You've just finished reading London Fields or Infinite Jest and want to have your brain picked.

You are also addicted to the Toast and Mallory Ortberg

You think that doing something like coming up with Jewish-themed magical realism puns like "Bris of the Spiderwoman" is a good use of your time/brainpower

You think you can beat me in scrabble (you probably can't)

You'd be equally happy spending Friday night at the opera or at a make-out party

You're a genderqueer or female-identified person who's interested in joining the Princeton branch of the Ladies High Tea and Pornography society (not kidding)
