My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I think I vacillate a lot about how to describe myself. It might raise some red flags for you (it does for me) that I tend to either feel like a perfect genius or a stupid idiot, and not much in between. I'm not really sure what my own normal is. I guess I like it that way. I'm not immediately going to be anybody's rock, and I'm not a wild card either, but I suppose I let the better angels of my personality compete with my demons in real time.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I currently work for a large regional banking institution, doing neat corporate stuff. It wouldn't have been my dream job in a million years, but it gives me a chance to be a badass and to have no idea what I'm doing in the same day. Really putting my English degree to good use...

Oh god, is that really it? I need to get out more. Hint.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
1. Starting lists that don't really go anywhere
2. Screw it I'm tired

Truly, I'm not someone who finds the expression of confidence to be a virtue, even when it seems to be justified. Living in the world has taught me to do the things I'm good at rather than telling other people what I think they are. There's no shortage of ways to make someone a liar, but what we do speaks for itself, and can't readily be undone.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My beard tends to catch the eye first. I know this because of how many women spontaneously cross the street when they see me walking toward them.

If you happen to like beards though, I usually keep mine cropped close, as I don't like eating beard hairs any more than you would, say, getting some soup at Panera.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I don't think there's any chance I could list all of the books, movies, shows, music, and food I like, and I can't imagine a universe where I would feel like doing it anyway, because then I'd be excluding a great many things too, but I guess some basics might be edifying.

First, you can see some of what books I've read and liked here, although I don't really update this thing or have any interest in ensuring that it's complete or accurate:

Like I said, I'm a big fan of medieval literature, so when it comes to, say, modern and/or American stuff, I'm not really much of an expert. Sit me down with some Chaucer or Cædmon's Hymn and I'm happy as a clam, but most literary works written in the 20th century are going to be a real chore. Accordingly, most of my pleasure reading tends toward popular and historical novels, Romantic-era fiction, and stuff about medieval Europe or antiquity.

I've read all (some) of the big franchises out recently... Harry Potter, Hunger Games, the Millennium trilogy, etc., and I can dig most of them. On the other hand, I find the works of Stephenie Meyer, Dan Brown, and Christopher Paolini so terrible I haven't been able to finish one yet. So, sorry if you like those, but you really shouldn't.

As for movies, I can find a reason to like most of the ones I see. I'm trying to creep into some critical work on book-to-film adaptation, so lately I've been watching a lot of those... (which is also why I've paid particular attention to the popular novel series I mentioned). I also love Spaghetti Westerns, Kurosawa, Wes Anderson, the Coen brothers, Christopher Guest, Star Trek, a range of anime titles, and Tarantino.

I don't watch too many TV shows regularly, but I used to try not to miss Jeopardy! or Chopped (a pleasure I do not feel guilty about, tyvm). Arrested Development, the Star Treks, many AMC, HBO, Showtime series, 30 Rock, Law & Order (classic), and both The Offices are among what I consider the best and most entertaining television of my adulthood.

Music perplexes me. Well, how other people talk and seem to think about music perplexes me. I have bands, songs, composers, instruments, and genres that I like quite a bit, but it really never occurs to me to listen to music unless I'm craving one or more of the above in particular. The notion of always having music playing as some sort of soundtrack for day-to-day activities seems bizarre to me.

When I am to be found listening to music though, I especially like: Enon, The Dismemberment Plan, Pavement, Belle and Sebastian, God Help the Girl, Gigi (Maintenant), Ennio Morricone, Daft Punk, Fleet Foxes, The Ball Sisters Band, Beethoven, Lucky Soul, and George Gershwin.

And last, but foremost, food... I'm a pretty decent cook, and I love Tex Mex and Caribbean food, Italian-American classics, a variety of Indian cuisines, the little bit of Thai I've been exposed to, Greek, classical French (as though I could afford it) and above all pizza. Pizza is the greatest food, the only food civilization really requires. If pizza is not available, for some apocalyptic reason, and I'm too tired to cook, I frequently end up stopping at Swensons or Chipotle. A bit too frequently, my belt informs me...
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
The important thing is not "could not do without," it's "have done without and it wasn't such a big deal." I find people are wrong often enough about what they can do without that I don't really put much stock in estimates of what they can't.

But to be fair, if you take my phone away I will cut you.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
what I should have been thinking about earlier, when I was thinking about what I should have been thinking about before that.

Do you ever feel like your plans and your regrets, almost, cancel each other out?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Friday just isn't my day. The highs and lows of the week, and its ending, just break my brain and tax my body too much to be very entertaining, to myself or anyone else. I'm not a homebody, but on Friday just leave me alone with Netflix. (Or join me.)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I haven't had a good, full head of hair since I was about 12. I really don't know what to do about it except go on with my life. I suspect most people would think it looks terrible at this point, if they sat down and thought about it, but it's part of my DNA, and I don't reject it. It does make me sad sometimes though--I know what it looks like when people notice.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You should message me if you're kind of a maniac. I've always been looking for a woman who might center or ground me, but after some error and error, I realize that's pointless. I couldn't render that service to anyone. So I want to meet some women who aren't sure if they're charmed or cursed, and want to find their antidote and downfall. Er, or.
