My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
so... i'm pretty new to okcupid, and very very new to the UK. i just moved from Boston, MA, USA, 3 weeks ago. (I am writing this in the third week of july 2013, in case i haven't updated it by the time you read it.) having lived my whole life in the US, i'm finding quite a lot of differences, but none i can't handle. (i am gradually training myself to look to the right when i cross the road.) and i couldn't have picked a better city to live in than Edinburgh. At the moment i fill my time by seeing new and interesting parts of the city (there are a lot) -- but it would be nice if there was someone else in the picture.

... f**k diy.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
i'm an academic. i moved here because i was offered a lectureship from the university of edinburgh. (i study ice sheet and glaciers and a little bit of maths.)

i've been asked "how long are you here for" a lot. the job is permanent, so i'm here indefinitely - maybe permanently if i have reason to stay.

at the moment.. i guess that's it. i'd like to be running around all the parks here but my ankle is injured. doing physio and crossing fingers.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
twerking. sending in my meter readings.

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
just a sampling:
movies: dune, greenberg, oldboy, se7en, wet hot american summer, grosse pointe blank

shows: breaking bad, justified, the wire, the shield, game of thrones, the league, arrested development, battlestar, walking dead, everything by joss whedon, peep show, the IT crowd, garth marenghi's darkplace

music: i am generally drawn to anything that sounds unique. i like stoner/sludge metal (i call it 'hipster metal'), e.g. high on fire, electric wizard, melvins. i don't know how to classify them but i love ghost and kvelertak. also more indie stuff like queens of the stone age, yeah yeah yeahs, malachai (from bristol)

books: i don't think i've read as many novels as maybe i should have in my adult life; unfortunately i filled the time reading journal articles. some favorites are the dune series; anything by philip roth; cloud atlas; super sad true love story. i also read a lot of nonfiction, and lately i've read a lot on fish.

food: crisps.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
math and glaciers and real ales
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
perhaps at a pub (or the whisky soc) with friends & colleagues, or maybe out of town, or maybe tired from running and watching crap on netflix
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I don't like tea. I always think of the BBC version of Hitchhiker's Guide when the ship's computer tries to figure out why someone would want to drink leaves boiled in water and ends up melting down. I know, odd that i would choose to come here... but i do like the beer.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
you want to. or you like real ales and fun talks in pubs about nothing

ps. i take my coffee in the morning. it doesn't have to be a pub (although that's always easiest!) but i'm not so much into meeting socially for coffee.. sorry..
