My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am a fairly sociable misanthrope from the wilds of central NJ. I own far too many books (history and science fiction are my favorite subjects, but I tend to read just about anything), and consider myself one of the leading pseudo-intellectuals of my generation. I live for good conversation, but not over coffee, because I don't drink coffee. Well, I mean, YOU can go ahead and order coffee, that's fine. I'm pretty amenable to any kind of social outing, for me the company I keep is more important than any endeavor we might pursue. Except ice fishing. You're on your own there.

I consider it a point of pride that I have never seen a full episode of either AMERICAN IDOL, or SURVIVOR, or that show with Howie Mandel, who apparently is bald now.

I am a Libra, but have absolutely no idea what that might signify, sorry. Also, I was born in the Year of the Tiger, when Zeus came down from Mount Olympus and seduced my mother by taking the form of a majestic white swan. Why do women CONSTANTLY fall for that old routine?!?

In the interest of fair disclosure, you should know that I am a cheerfully hopeless sci-fi geek to the Nth degree who can tell you who played Lobot in THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK but who isn't precisely sure whether the Yankees are a football team or a basketball team.

I'm pretty liberal. I don't necessarily have a problem with Republicans, but I loathe the politics and policies of George W. Bush and his kind of Republicans. Sorry. No wiggle room on this one. This is probably a deal-breaker.

Like most ugly people, when pressed on the subject I will unerringly aver that looks don't matter to me, that I only care about the person inside. This is mostly true; however, I will confess to being unapologetically prejudiced against hunchbacks. Don't like 'em, don't trust 'em, wouldn't live next to one. So. If you're a really cool, smart, nice woman, but you're a hunchback, sorry, but...hell, who am I kidding. Go ahead and message me anyway, I'm just that desperate. Just wear a baggy sweater or something.

(Yes, that bit about the Yankees was a joke. I know that they're a football team. I'm not THAT clueless.)

...PS: So many icons! Yikes...not sure I agree with all of them, how can I be both more literary and less artistic? The two would seem to be mutually exclusive...also, the quarter with the bar across it makes me sound like a beggar. Ouch. Does an occasional stint squeegeeing people's windshields against their will a beggar make? I think not...

I am clever, foolish, and contradictory
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I toil in the trenches of thankless retail management at the moment, which is about as fulfilling as it sounds, but it beats poverty. I used to have to wear a tie for my job; now I have to wear a namebadge. Still not sure how I feel about that. I have sat and concentrated really hard many times over the years, but my first novel has yet to materialize into existence out of nothingness, so, I may have to actually sit and try to write it myself.

I also harbor a long-unrealized desire to get involved with political activism, even if only on a local level. If the Republicans keep winning elections I'm going to defect to Mongolia. So. I might try and find a worthwhile local or state candidate to support this year. I don't really feel like herding goats on the steppes of Central Asia anytime soon.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
* speeling * backgammon and shuffleboard (no, seriously) * finding lost car keys, cell phones, or treasure maps * making people laugh without resorting to cheap stunts like lighting my own genitals on fire * playing one of those homemade banjos your dad used to make out of a cigar box and some rubber bands for some reason * explaining the difference between Twelver Shi'a Islam and Wahhabi Sunni Islam, as if anyone cared * surprising people with uncharacteristic displays of kindness and sensitivity just when they need it the most, and which my ordinarily gruff and sarcastic demeanor make them cherish all the more, which is usually when I hit them up for money
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have no facial expressions whatsoever. Yes, this sounds weird. I grant you that. I just tend to look slightly irritable all the time, even when I'm really happy. I suspect that I suffered some kind of nervous damage from being dropped as a baby. (Or thrown.)

People also tend to think that I'm something of a smartass. I don't really know where that one got started.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
A) ha! Got a few days for me to think this over? I read between 50-80 books every year, so, it's tough to pick favorites. Let me give it the old college drop-out try: FOUCAULT'S PENDULUM by Umberto Eco, the Aubrey/Maturin series by Patrick O'Brian, IT by Stephen King, THE AMAZING ADVENTURES OF KAVALIER AND CLAY by Michael Chabon, the Hitchhiker's series by Douglas Adams, TIK-TOK by John Sladek, A FIRE UPON THE DEEP by Vernor Vinge, NEUROMANCER by William Gibson, HARDWIRED by Walter Jon Williams, THE THIN RED LINE by James Jones, MOBY-DICK by Herman Melville, BATTLEFIELD EARTH by L. Ron Hubbard (yes, Scientology is asinine, but the guy could write), anything by Neal Stephenson, anything by Dan Simmons, anything by Harlan Ellison, Thomas Ligotti, John Shirley, Bentley Little, Philip Jose Farmer; non-fiction political mumbo-jumbo by Tariq Ali, Noam Chomsky, Howard Zinn, Michael Parenti; all kinds of history; any comic book written by Alan Moore, Daniel Clowes, Grant Morrison, or Jack Kirby. Okay. Shutting up now. B) ALL THE PRESIDENT'S MEN, THE LORD OF THE RINGS trilogy, THE THIN RED LINE, NETWORK, ANCHORMAN: THE LEGEND OF RON BURGUNDY, DR. STRANGELOVE, 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY, THE THIRD MAN, TIME BANDITS, and CADDYSHACK, just to name a few totally random favorites. As far as TV goes, BATTLESTAR GALACTICA, DOCTOR WHO (no snickering in the back), both STARGATE shows, LOST, ALIAS, and most anything on the Sci-Fi Channel, History Channel, and Discovery Times channel. C) I tend to have very eclectic musical tastes; I admit to being less than knowledgable about music. I'm listening to Soundgarden at the moment, if that helps. I like classical, classic rock, modern rock, little bits here and there of everything. I'd like to learn more about jazz, or bluegrass. That seems old-timey enough for a curmudgeon in the making like myself. D) I tend to like Italian cuisine the most. I'd like to try Indian or Thai cuisine but I'm something of a coward. I will eventually.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I hate these stupid kinds of questions. So, I refuse to answer it out of general principle. Smash the crypto-fascist tyrants of OKCupid! Figure me out by what I say and what I do, not what I own, that's what I say.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Sadly, oddly, strangely, whichever you deem most apropos, I spend an inordinate amount of time thinking about history and current events, trying to discern some form of pattern from past happenings to try and distill some coherence from the chaos and unpredictability of where we are today. I guess I worry a lot about where we're all going, as a country, as a planet. I wonder how our ancestors are going to judge us, long after we're dead. Maybe it's easier to worry about the Big Picture than it is to deal with the Little Picture.

I'm not hopelessly abstract, mind you. We all want to find a person who will listen to us and make us feel better. We all want to go to sleep each night happy. I'm no different.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Working, usually. Or else doing my best to unwind, usually in the company of a few friends, talking well past the witching hour. Sometimes I like to wander the streets of the naked city righting wrongs to assuage my burning desire for vengeance upon the criminal element, but, I'd also be up for bowling. Bowling is fun.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That I really don't expect anyone to respond to me here, but decided to create a profile anyway in a most unseemly display of optimism, because I was bored and what the hell.
