My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
It might be a delusion caused by too much gin and vermouth, but I consider myself a likable fellow: fair-minded, undemanding, and slow to take offense. I don’t ooze the milk of human kindness, yet I do my best to be inviting and friendly. Words used to describe me have included: “intelligent,” “honest”, and “good enough." Other, less kind words have also been used to describe me, but I decline to list those!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Currently, a graduate student in philosophy. The hope is to get a PhD and--God willing!--become a professor of philosophy.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm good at nerdy academic stuff, though it seems my real genius is for procrastination, because I appear to spend the bulk of my time doing that.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That’d be my eyes--my big baby blues! At least, I like to think so.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Placing aside academic articles and books, I mostly read fiction, classic to contemporary, arty to trashy. Favorite authors include (among many): Joseph Conrad, Thomas Hardy and Raymond Chandler. (I know, I know...all men.) My genre fiction of choice is crime and mystery, especially hardboiled and noir. I'm currently collecting and reading old pulp crime paperbacks--the ones with lurid covers featuring a buxom dame in dishabille menaced by a guy with a gun, or some variation on that theme.

I've watched A LOT of movies in my day, again classic to contemporary, arty to trashy. Favorite directors include (among many): Hitchcock, Herzog, and Altman. (I know, I know...all men.) I have a real weakness for horror movies, no matter how crappy. A maniac getting all stabby with a butcher knife (or choppy with an ax) is that kind of thing that can make my day.

Shows I like include: The Colbert Report, The Simpsons (classic seasons), Seinfeld, Bob's Burgers, 30 Rock, Archer, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Peep Show and a few more.

I confess, with a heavy heart, that I don't listen to music that much these days, though when I do I favor singer-songwriters (esp. Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen, and Tom Waits), blues, and jazz.

Food is delicious, and I eat it with some frequency. I've got a big thing for noodles, which, happily, are employed in dishes from many areas of the world (Europe! Asia!). I also lust after ice-cream: the thought of a big bowl of cookies-n-cream makes my loins positively quiver.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
-Stephen Colbert
-The voice of H. Jon Benjamin
-Something to read. Heaven forbid I be left alone with my own thoughts!
-I find the existence of doggies cheering, even though I don't have one.
-My precious bodily fluids.
-Someone to complain to.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
how not to embarrass myself. Even so, I can't seem to stop embarrassing myself.

I also think a lot about sarcasm (I'm writing my dissertation on it), politics (those Republicans are awful), and the impending expiration of my youth (though I say I have a good 6 years left, at least).

I also often wonder what's so funny about peace, love, and understanding.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
doing something or other to pass the time. Mostly I'm lounging at home but there are occasional sightings of me out and about town. (Seriously, though, I need to get out more.)
