My self-summary
I asked a friend for input recently while hiking. She came up with these three items:
1. "Well, you're literate."
2. "You didn't laugh and point when I tripped."
3. "You made sure I didn't fall off that cliff."

Seems like a good start. Here are some other miscellaneous things that make me, well, me...

I know how to operate a Ferris wheel.

My drinks of choice are Manhattans and smoky single malts.

Discussions about the weather and the phrase "circle back" make me want to rip my ears off.

I never break my promises.

Food is a passion. I can cook. Seriously. With ingredients and everything.

I miss having a dog. I'm planning to remedy that this summer. Now accepting breed recommendations (and yes, "just go the pound and save a mutt" is an acceptable recommendation).

From time to time, I'm wrong about something. I know how to apologize.

I've taken adult education classes on glassblowing, criminology, and sushi making.

I tell long meandering stories, with tangents, asides, and backtracks, all the while forgetting the original point.

One winter, I lived at a ski house in Vermont.

Among my most important knowledge is the best bakery in Boston.

I'm a pescatarian... unless I'm in a situation where it's FAR more interesting not to be (tasting menu at a five star restaurant, ballgame, Bizarre Asian Foods class, Alabama...).

The same day I cracked my head open, I learned how to whistle.
What I’m doing with my life
Picked up and moved from Boston to San Francisco a year and a half ago. Now I'm exploring this new world and loving every minute of it, especially being outside without freezing to death! I'm having fun hiking, looking to dust off my inline skates and skiboards (not a typo), and I imagine surfing is coming soon too.

Suffered through a job I didn't much care for last year (have to cover that spendy SF lifestyle somehow), but now I'm at my dream job. 2014 is moving along right!

While I don't expect to become ascetic, I'm switching from a life of things to a life of experiences. It's a work in progress but one I'm enjoying. Things on shelves are meaning less and less to me every day.
I’m really good at
Remembering things long forgotten.

Getting the reference.

My mad scientist laugh.

Making you laugh (with or without use of my mad scientist laugh).

Being tall. I use my powers for good.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I've traded in hoodies for cufflinks.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Words: I'm a voracious reader of all things, from biographies to comics to classics to cereal boxes. But favorites? I guess I'll be cliché and say Hamlet. *shrug* Show me something better than that and I'll read it. I currently have my bookmark in Modernist Cuisine, and I'm eying some classics sitting on my shelf (okay, iPad) - Proust heads the list.

Pictures: Seurat, Mondrian, Pollock, Escher, Kandinsky, Van Gogh

Words & Pictures: Less and less every day, it seems. Either they are canceled/end (Damages, Breaking Bad) or stop interesting me (Boardwalk Empire, Homeland). I still adore Mad Men though. Others I like(d) are The Killing, Doctor Who, True Detective, Sherlock, Bored To Death, Arrested Development, Happy Endings, Downton Abbey, Daily Show, Sports Night, Buffy, X-Files, Twin Peaks, IT Crowd, Tabletop, and of course, The Wire.

Words & (Bigger) Pictures: The top five are probably Seven Samurai, The Umbrellas Of Cherbourg, Lawrence Of Arabia, The Third Man, and M. Hulot's Holiday, but that's always in some amount of flux. Yep, I like classics. Hey, at least they're talkies...

I pay much more attention to directors than actors. Favorites there are Akira Kurosawa, Fritz Lang, Jacques Tati, Jean-Luc Godard, Krzysztof Kieślowski, Richard Linklater, Wes Anderson, Edward Burns, John Sayles, Terrence Malick, and Eugene Jarecki.

Sounds: Belle & Sebastian, Spain, Hayden, Mark Eitzel, Yo La Tengo, Pixies, Stereolab, Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, Sleater-Kinney, Ivy, The Magnetic Fields, Nick Drake, I Love You But I've Chosen Darkness (actually, I've never heard the last one but isn't it a great band name?)

BONUS FACT: I was able to have one of those artists play a house party for my 40th birthday - quite the dream!

Eats:
Mangoes are definitely the best.

Mangosteens are entirely different, much more elusive, and nearly as wonderful.

Will I be flying to Boston in July to have some cucumber ice cream? OhyesIwillthankyouverymuch!

I made koulibiac once and it was very much worth the effort.

Uni at a really good sushi restaurant is an exceptional delight.

Soup!

A really lemony lemon tart.

Moxie (I don't expect you to like this too - NO ONE but me does.)

And there are these specific vanilla cream cookies at Whole Foods... I swear they're laced with crack.
The six things I could never do without
opposable thumbs
surprises
Poohsticks (don't be scared - look it up)
French footwear
a well-equipped kitchen
Schoolhouse Rock! (if there is a perfect thing in this world, Rufus Xavier Sarsaparilla is surely it)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Airfare pricing models. It's the most inexplicable mystery I know. ;) Okay, I've actually given up and admitted that one to be inscrutable.

I also wonder if I can pass Jeanne Calment.
On a typical Friday night I am
raiding OKCupid for all the good answers while the rest of you are out drinking. Mwah ha ha ha...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I enjoy knock knock jokes far more than anyone over the age of eight probably should.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 28–42
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For new friends, long-term dating
You should message me if
There used to be a long checklist of what I was looking for, but it's pretty well narrowed down at this point: 1. Please try not to stab me. 2. NEVER ask me to rake leaves.

If you know what you want, and that happens to be a real long-term relationship that you're willing to put some effort into, that would be nice as well. But mostly it's the leaves.
