Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a geek. If you are too, so much the better.

My best friend and I bought a house about three years ago. So now I
live with my cat, my best friend, my best friend's cat, my best
friend's dog, our housemate, and (every other weekend, it seems)
our housemate's girlfriend. Fun times!
I am intellectual, semi-quasi-pseudo, and whole
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Carving out my place in the world.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Procrastinating, though not always intentionally. I lose track of
time, and weeks will sometimes blur together. I work too
I have an interesting habit of saying inappropriate things at bad
times. My sense of humor runs a bit to the eccentric side, and what
sometimes seems hilarious in my head seems much less so half a
second after it leaves my mouth.
I tend to be the one to take charge of groups, so long as I don't
feel the group is taking advantage of that. This just happens.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I like to observe first and act with considered intent. I am pretty
much a textbook introvert.
I'm very blond, literally.
At work, I hate inactivity. If I'm not doing something, then I'm
doing something wrong.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I have favorite authors and subjects rather than favorite books.
. I pleasure read physics
books written for the layperson
for pleasure. I enjoy history and social science books as well as
novels and short stories. I'm known to blow $40 at a time on pulp
magazines for the short stories
" by Frank Herbert
I prefer good movies (who doesn't). What I mean is, I dislike
movies that have action for the sake of having action. I'm bothered
by movies that have unrealistic characters. Bad dialogue is
inexcusable. Movies that make me examine them to fully understand
them are much more interesting to watch than the typical summer
blockbuster. Donnie Darko
, The Shawshank
, Notting Hill
. That being said, if it's a
movie, all my rules go out the window.
Music is important to me. I'll sing to myself at almost any
opportunity. I go long stretches of time with songs stuck in my
head. I like the music of VAST
, Toad the Wet Sprocket
, Stabbing Westward
, Nickle Creek
, Third Eye Blind
, Tears For Fears
, Marvelous 3
, Wise Guys
(gotta love German accapella
music) and various others. I'll listen to almost anything except
really hard-core rap, and even that statement isn't always
Food is a strange experience for me. I feel like I have almost no
sense of smell, so the most important aspect of food for me is
texture. Many things taste the same to me. I'll drink in the
company of friends, but usually not as much as they do. I don't
drink for the sake of drinking.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Corrective eyewear (would be very unfunny to be without), close
relationships, fresh air, my ability to think, laughter, and
Most importantly a sense of humor. There's too much crap in life to
take it all seriously. Though I'm guilty of doing that
On a more practical level... PS2, car, college-ruled paper,
paychecks, dishwasher, clean socks.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Daydreams. Whatever I last read. How fast am I driving?
Poetry is an oral art
The place of music in my life.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
...the same thing we do every night, Pinky.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm really not sure. Ask me whatever it is you'd like to know and
I'll tell you. My birthday is June 28. Get me something.
I have a crush on the character Racetrack from the new Battlestar
