My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm an urban tumbleweed and fan of absurd humor. I say, "I haven't seen/read/listened to that, but I've heard of it" an awful lot. Ideally I'd end up in a Nick and Nora Charles situation, but I'm absolutely ok with ending up in a Bob and Linda Belcher scenario. People usually end up laughing around me, and my college friends always mention they miss me after I start quipping.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
For work, I examine proposed legislation for both the State Legislature and our good Governor, praise be unto him. I also sit around waiting for the next corruption scandal. My work involves strange, arbitrary hours and is much like Batman if he were more of an armchair detective and less of a punching detective. Last year I managed to find a 4 billion dollar mistake in the state budget. I'm also an amateur mixologist, a professional improviser and the treasurer for a little non-profit in my hometown, those poor people (not literally the organization actually has balanced books).
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm an enthusiastic dancing machine; during my pirate days I was known as "Dancing Pete". I can build a computer from the ground up, so I've gotten good at swearing at weird noises and then making the computer sound normal again. I also love riffing on terrible films, it comes from a childhood of being a MST3K fanatic. I get amazingly flustered at Mario Kart and other video games, but I provide a great commentary. I often receive compliments on my driving abilities, and I mix mean drinks. My mojitos have been known to berate people on occasion. I'm also a terrific space heater.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I’m very animated in conversation with people I know; I tend to use gestures and speak with my hands. Picture Lewis Black with a dash more nerd and a dash less twitching.

I have one of those open, trusting faces which means that I always have to talk to random folks. I just recently had to give someone directions to a place I didn't know, and then a camera crew asked me if I lived in the area. I said I did not.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Musashi by Eiji Yoshikawa, King Lear by Shakespeare, and the Complete Calvin and Hobbes, because they are all beautiful works. My favorite poem is "Ulysses" by Tennyson, Eliot's Prufrock is a close second, and "Dover Beach" is closing fast. Eugene O'Neil is my favorite playwright.

Movies: Dawn of the Dead, the original one. The Big Lebowski and Big Trouble in Little China. The Lego Movie was incredible. My favorite directors are Werner Herzog, Kurosawa, Miyazaki, the Coens, Terry Gilliam, and David Lynch. Groundhog Day is the best romantic comedy. I will always have a special place in my heart for movies that are so bad they're good (The Room, Miami Connection, etc).

Television: Mr. Show with Bob and David (they're going to have a reunion! I peed myself when I heard the news), Parks and Recreation, MST3K, Monty Python's Flying Circus, That Mitchell and Webb Look, Veep, The Thick of It, Bob's Burgers, and Key & Peele.

Music: Jethro Tull, David Bowie, The Band, Daft Punk, Radiohead, Talking Heads, Queens of the Stone Age, Le Vent du Nord (Quebecois folk-rock, it's incredible and actually involves proper use of a hurdy-gurdy). I love tons of music, and listen to 102.7 and 97.7 regularly. I think Annie Lennox and Sandy Denny are 100% pure vocal gold. I'm a big classical music dork, too.

Food: As long as there's love in it, I’ll enjoy it. My favorite sensory experiences when it comes to taste are beverages anywho. I really enjoy New York wine (At long last I made it to Channing Daughters on Long Island and the wine was amazing). Also, cocktails made with fresh citrus and good liquor (I made one up I call the Orange Blossom Special because of my unoriginality and love of fiddle music).
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Imagination. It and curiosity hooked up and now we have science.

Music, especially classical piano. Prokofiev and Rachmaninoff are MY SHIIIIIIIIIIT.

I’m a huge fan of stand-up comedy. My favorites are Patton Oswalt, Louis CK, Lewis Black, Eugene Mirman, Mike Birbiglia, and John Hodgman. Those guys are all tremendous influences on my own personal brand of humor.

The internet. What a fascinating window to the world we’ve been given. I can learn all about The Hundred Years War and laugh at pictures of a cat with terrible puns? Thanks Al Gore!

Comedy podcasts. Seriously, go listen to How Did This Get Made?, Comedy Bang Bang, and the Andy Daly Podcast Pilot Project. You'll thank me later.

A diverse vocabulary. I just love using arcane words.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The fortunes of the NY Giants during football season (It's over and wasn't good, but at least the team has Odell Beckham Jr). How to connect the past and the future. What funny voice I will try to do on the next comedy podcast I record. Mythology, folklore, and storytelling. Why 6/8 time is the best time signature. How to invent a time machine so I can work through my ridiculous backlog of books and films. Maybe if I didn't spend so much time on theoretical physics I'd have more time to read, but when I invent a TARDIS, time is going to be my oyster.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Performing comedy improv somewhere in the Capital District (most likely at Proctor's). If you come to a show you might even make it up on stage! We could make a musical based on your life, or you could get to use me as a human puppet! Please note that activity is usually reserved for at least a fifth date, so it's really like a try before you buy program.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
The first comic book I bought was The Mighty Thor because I was so into mythology as a youngster. Still my favorite superhero to this day.

Also, it's not the thought of completely opening myself up to another person, but the thought that no one will ever completely open themselves up to me that is truly terrifying.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
I like sassy, brassy gals who are unafraid to voice themselves. Sarcastic banter is always fun. If you want to watch MST3K you get lots of cool points. You can trade them in for a new blender! Only a Ninja though, not one of those fancy Vitamix ones; do I look like a Rockefeller?

You are somewhat less than serious in general. It's not like you're being hunted by raptors, that is deadly serious and if you have a problem with them you need to consult a dedicated professional.

If you've ever felt a piece of music touch your soul. If you have to ask what it feels like, then you haven't felt it.

You aren't entirely sure what you're looking for because it turns out I'm not exactly sure myself. Romance is wacky! (Insert trombone slide)
