My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Something something back on OKCupid something something self-flagellation something something slightly outdated Fifty Shades of Grey insult bandwagon. Consider this a work in progress.

I walk a line between hopeless naïvité and clinical cynicism that you never knew existed.
I love referential humor.
I like explaining things. Sometimes I even succeed.
I've lost innumerable hours of my life to TvTropes.
I don't believe it's possible to like something ironically.
I'm insanely jealous of people who can spontaneously sing harmonies.

You know the research that suggests that mastery is achieved after ~10,000 hours of practice? I'd much rather be largely proficient with 10 things than master just one.

For the Myers-Briggs fans out there, I'm ISTJ. Staunch but socialized I, somewhat S, full-on TJ.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Well, I just moved to the Bay Area. Ostensibly for a new job, but really for the weather and the west coast swing dancing.

I'm torn between trying to establish new routines and exploring everything the city has to offer.

No, but seriously. This weather is unreal. Granted, drought, but mid-50s highs in winter is a heck of a silver lining.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Consuming large quantities of information about things I'm interested in.
Overusing parentheses.
Tetrising in real life (but not so much tetris itself, oddly enough).
Sticking my foot in my mouth.
Eating cheese balls with chopsticks.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Everyone here seems to talk slower than I do. Let's go with that.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books/Authors: Douglas Adams, Malcolm Gladwell, A Song of Ice and Fire, Freakanomics, Ender's Game, The Checklist Manifesto.
Honestly, I don't read as much as I should. I have a hard time putting books down once I start, which leads to binge reading session on weeknights, which leads to being exhausted at work the next day. Fail all around, that.

Movies: Memento, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Love Actually. The Marvel movies have been pretty fun lately, as was Pacific Rim, though I'd be hardpressed to call them favorites.
Truth be told, I'm not much of a movie person. They're enjoyable enough, but I've never really appreciated the medium. I tend to favor comedies over dramas, and I can't do horror.

Shows: House of Cards, Breaking Bad, Community, So You Think You Can Dance, Castle, ::cough cough:: Dr. Horrible's Singalong Blog. Also, have you seen that IFC Garfunkel and Oates show?

Music: Maroon 5, Boston, Katy Perry, Rockapella, Vitamin String Quartet. I loves me my awful pop music.

Food: Short answer: Yes. Long answer: Yes please. You name it, I'll try it (and probably love it). Slow cooked pulled pork is my go-to simple meal, and pho is my favorite comfort food. Other pleasures include burritos, sushi, and all manner of baked goods.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
In no particular order:
Brunch
Earplugs
High speed internet
Floss
Cats. I don't need to own one, but I need to know they'll always be out there.
And footwear-intensive hobbies, apparently (see: dancing, climbing, running)

Friends and family come standard, right?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How to describe my job in less than 7+ complex sentences. I wish I'd had the sense to have a one-word occupation like engineer or doctor or prostitute.

Whether I should have the pho or the pork chops over broken rice. It's the hardest decision I make on a regular basis.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I've recently picked up indoor climbing, so that seems to've worked its way into my Friday routine. Who said a fear of heights and suspension five stories off the ground was a bad idea?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm not really into sportball, and I won't apologize for it. (Sorry.)

I don't like This American Life nearly as much as I thought I would.

I handle small children like pets that know how to talk, i.e., with equal parts awe and consternation.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You know of a good way to practice turns and not get dizzy. I swear, it's worse than a hangover. It's like a turn hangover. A turnover? No, that's probably something else.
