My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I grew up in Northern Virginia, went to college in-state, and moved back after graduation, so I guess that makes me one of the few DC-area natives. So of course I work in politics, live in Clarendon, see people I know on the street all the time. Blah blah blah, boring stuff about me, rote yuppie platitudes, etc. etc.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working for the administration in an assistant job. The office is much sexier than the work.

On weekends, I try to ditch the blackberry and notepad in favor of a cup of coffee and a book, a baseball game and a hot dog, a 9:30 club concert and a PBR, a tumbler of whisky and a jazz record, a blanket, a couch, and HBO, etc.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Crossword puzzles, Scrabble, and card games. I can and will beat anyone at Hearts. And I rock at pub trivia.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm tall and walk way too fast. I'm that head floating above the others, weaving through crowds in the metro.

I'm also told I look and act old for my age -- so, you know, the opposite of what you want. Unless of course the 'weathered' look is in these days?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I just started a record collection -- I have 5. (UPDATE: 8) I just dug up my CD collection -- I used to have something like 400, but now I only have like 50? Bummer. I am currently reading The Last Dickens (kind of a historical fiction murder mystery tied to Dickens and his works), The Great Upheaval (non-fiction, generally about the various major revolutions in the 19th century), Catching Fire (the second Hunger Games book). Currently watching Game of Thrones (there are far too many characters to keep track of), the West Wing (watching from the beginning -- my roommate and I are almost done with season 6), Sports (Caps, Nats, Red Sox).

And then more lists for the obligatory background check:

Books: Sedaris, Salinger, Twain, Austen, et al. As someone who majored in English, this list should really be long and arduous, but whatever.

Movies: Shitty chick flick rom-coms (You've Got Mail seems appropriate?), blockbusters (I legitimately love The Day After Tomorrow), and any sarcastic comedy.

TV: I really love watching shows on DVD -- The Wire and Battlestar Gallactica are the best shows of all time. Working through West Wing. I've seen every episode of Entourage and Curb Your Enthusiasm, may they rest in peace. And for current shows, I keep up with Thursday night FX (Always Sunny, the League, Archer) and NBC (30 Rock, Parks and Rec, Office, Community). I also DVR Jeopardy and watch them all over the weekend (without commercials or the silly interviews, the episodes are only like 12 minutes long).

Music: What I listen to depends on activity and mood, but on a given day I might be listening to: Wilco, Radiohead, Arcade Fire, Neutral Milk Hotel, Girl Talk, Rilo Kiley, Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, Kelly Clarkson, Taylor Swift, Debussy, Chopin, Ryan Adams, more.

Food: Milksteak, boiled over hard, and a side of jelly beans -- raw, of course.

Actually, I have a lot of food allergies. Luckily, I'm mostly allergic to "healthy" foods (no soy for me), so I get to pig out and not feel bad. I would die of protein deficiency if I tried to be a vegetarian.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My car
A large bed
A hot shower
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Politics, music, what I'm going to do this weekend.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?

Actually, Fridays I'm usually beat (work, work, work). I'll have a few beers as a pregame, get tired and realize those beers were the game, then pop in a DVD and pass out. Saturdays are more mayhem-y.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I watched She's Just Not That Into You on HBO. Twice. And I liked it.
