My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Probably the best way to describe myself is "smart, geeky, and a little intense." Love live music, beer, sleep, and philosophical arguments. Currently employed as a federal bureaucrat. (Don't worry, I didn't have to SELL my soul...I just put it in a lockbox Monday morning and get it back on Friday.) Also, you should know that I'm nearsighted to the point of being legally blind; the "VI" stands for "Visually Impaired."
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am secretly plotting to ram the Earth into the sun. (Well, it WAS secret.)

Right now, I'm working for the Dept of the Treasury. My intention is to go 'up or out' within the next year. On a more personal level, I'm trying to be as social as I can to make up for the drudgery of work, catching up on all the reading I didn't do in my 20s (a lit minor will do that) and gaming. I recently switched from weight-loss-focused cardio to mostly strength training for my workout, and I'm excited to be healthier than I've been in my entire adult life.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I have a pretty astonishing memory for stupid trivia (history, science, geek culture, etc). I'm fantastic at making terrible jokes, I can outrun any three-toed sloth on the planet, and I am a surprisingly good dancer all things considered.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Pretty sure it's the white cane warning people of my poor eyesight, and the fact that because I don't use it to navigate I don't "carry it like a blind person." That or the fact that I don't always make eye contact easy, even when I think I'm doing it.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Freakonomics, American Gods, SF in general, Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Tale of Two Cities. I still read a few comics, though that's been trending downward for years now.

Movies: American Splendor, The Godfather, Blade Runner, anything Monty Python and anything by Edgar Wright. Ant-Man was glorious, even without Wright.

Shows: Community and Game of Thrones are as close to "mainstream TV" as I get. I love cartoons if they're "grownup-friendly." Been a Doctor Who fan off-and-on for twenty years, finally caught up on the modern series. The Flash has been my big deal so far this season.

Music: Synthesizer pop, especially on the gothy side. Power metal and prog metal, not big on thrash and 'mainstream' stuff. Funny music always gets my attention. Concert bucket list is Bowie, Cheap Trick, and Erasure atm.

Food: Beef Stroganoff, Tex-Mex, Japanese. I like fried food too much, but I've cut back significantly.

Games: I love the Ratchet and Clank series, the Metroid series, Fallout series...I desperately need to finish Mass Effect II.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Public transit, my Kindle, cane-sugar soda, someone to talk to, sleep and the internet.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The moral standards we hold fictional characters to, versus those we use to measure actual people. The Supreme Court. How to deal with climate change without collapsing the economy. Economics. (Is that repetitive?) The mechanics of recommendation algorithms, here and elsewhere. Cats.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I have a pretty great group of friends I met through a local book club; we get together pretty regularly on Friday or Saturday for dinner as a group followed by game night or a trip to a bar or club on the east side. If I'm on my own, home with a good video game is the rule.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am utterly mystified by the trend of plastic-mustache photos.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You can name every member of Oingo Boingo. You enjoy discussing economics, philosophy and/or politics. You want someone to talk about NEUROMANCER with. You aren't put off by my missing "obvious" body- and facial-language cues. You want a workout buddy. You're GGG.
