My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I grew up in the mountains of North Carolina, and after many adventures ended up in DC. Now I'm running around working for The Man, keeping the world spinning and suchlike (nah, I'm an analyst, but I can dream big).

Despite my country roots, I'm left-leaning on most things. I've learned this is very important to get out of the way early in conversations in DC.

You know how everyone says "how are you?" when you see them? Well, I'm one of those people who can ask you how your day is going and actually want to hear your response. I'm constantly interested in the world around me, how it works, and how I fit into it. I spend a lot of time on sites like Cracked, Gizmag, and Popsci trying to feed the brain.

I like to stay active - kayaking, softball, golf, tennis and hiking all fit into my life from time to time, and I'm a regular gym-goer. At the same time, I love movies and games of all kinds, and my inner nerd is strong.

I try to think deep thoughts, but I keep getting distracted. My favorite quote is: "Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle." I sincerely believe this is true, with limited and predictable exceptions. Paris Hilton is not fighting a hard battle.

I have an adventurous streak - I try not to say no to new things, and that once included eating scorpions from a street stall - but I'm always glad to come home.

And now I'm on OkCupid! Basically I'm here looking for someone who is smart, pretty, funny, happy, sarcastic, sexy, sassy, kinky, good, giving, game, and who gets me... or some combination of some of those traits, at any rate :). I'd like to meet some new people, do some new things, and generally try to find a special person to laugh with, love with, and share my life with, who wants to do the same with me.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Plotting nefarious and/or exciting deeds. Finding new and exciting ways to drink new and exciting beverages in the continuously new and exciting world in which we live. And trying to see more of that world, or at least its local components.

Oh, yeah, and I work for the government, unlike everyone else in DC! Seriously, I'm the only one. I try to keep the US DOT from spending its money on things it doesn't need. It's a harder job than you'd think.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Arriving places early. It's actually kind of uncanny - I've been at least five minutes early for just about everything for years, sometimes through no fault of my own. But I don't judge people for being late, because not everyone has superpowers like me, and also because holy crap Metro.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have had many people tell me that I walk like I was in the military. I wasn't, but apparently I always look like I'm very purposefully going somewhere.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Let's see...

Favorite books - I have a lot of favorites. My favorite series is the oh-so-dry-humor Discworld series by Terry Pratchett, followed by the Dresden Files series by Jim Butcher.

My favorite movies are Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back (which is one of the better constructed modern epics), The Abyss, Robin Hood: Men in Tights, Cabin in the Woods (best horror spoof ever), Serenity, Batman: The Dark Knight, anything with Daniel Day Lewis, Blazing Saddles, and The Princess Bride.

I don't watch a ton of TV, but Mythbusters is an all-time favorite of mine, along with Firefly. My favorite shows at the moment are The Walking Dead, Supernatural, Rules of Engagement, Big Bang Theory, Archer, and South Park. I've also gotten seriously addicted to Netflix. Just generally Netflix.

Musically my tastes jump around with my mood. I go for Rage Against the Machine, Disturbed, and Godsmack while writing complicated documents at work. IMAGINE DRAGONS... holy crap they have good live shows. In the solo artist realm my favorite singer is Kimbra (really great smokey voice).

Food-wise, I'll eat just about anything. My favorite food of all time is pad thai, followed by anything on a breakfast menu.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Diet Coke: I'm addicted.
2. Books: If I didn't read I wouldn't be me.
3. Good friends: No man is an island, even if we are all adrift.
4. The internet: I've watched it grow up, and it taught me most of what I know. Plus, like half of my stuff is there.
5. My family: They've always been there when I needed them, and I'm looking forward to returning the favor some day.
6. Neosporin: Because I am apparently incapable of playing simple sports without skinning at least one knee... and I'm not going to quit playing softball, so something's gotta give.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Where life is going and how I'm getting there. Also whether the next Star Wars movie is going to suck. And how did anyone find the square root of odd numbers before calculators?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Fridays for me are generally pretty chill. I'm usually hanging out with friends at a bar or watching movies.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I can't decide if everyone is just making up this "adulthood" thing as they go along, or if there's a memo I missed that had a detailed list of life choices and consequences on it.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If you want to chat, if you'd like to grab a beverage, if you'd be interested in checking out a comedy club, if you'd like to try indoor trampolining (that's not innuendo, it's a real thing), and/or if you have a serious philosophical point to make and you'd like a captive audience. Or, you know, if you want to.
