My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
More deft, less daft. [in theory]

Possibly also bigger-picture relevant is that I am from LA (Pasadena), but went to boarding school in CT for two years, then college in Boston (BU), then stayed in Boston till I was 31 (one year in NYC during that time), so I have an East Coast touch, you could say. Those were formative years (not that these aren't).

And I am honest about my age here. I guess a lot of people aren't.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
behaving as both a particle and a wave

(and disguising my avoidance of this question with a nonsensical analogy, it seems; maybe I'm just too cool for okcupid school--and all its blanket questions)

Okay, fine. ; ) I am currently a Copy Editor for a rather large corporate entity; before that did health and medical writing and also worked in public health research for a few years. In general, that field matched my altruistic tendencies. My current field matches my creative tendencies.

Overall, I like that my job tends to be full of variety, somewhat intellectual (English grammar is a sea of conundrums--plus the workplace is like a microcosm of society, thus highly entertaining in this way), often creative (seeing as how every ad is a unique concept), and often fun, due to my awesome coworkers (sometimes you just luck out in life), but that I also don't have to work overtime (except on occasion), so I have time for life outside of work.

On that note, outside of work, I try to explore everything LA has to offer, as many say. Missing that partner in crime, also as many say. Want to go on more road trips, damn it.

I also do a ton of yoga (Bikram, bitches!) and recently started taking drum lessons. Yeah, some of us were just born to rock, son.

Used to sail, too. Any sailors out there? I got certified at 17 but basically gave it up after. It seemed too cold and dreary in Boston and I was more into music/art/fucking off at that point in my life. Anyhow, I just signed up for a two-week sailing trip in Italy this August, with hopes it will re-infuse sailing into my bones and make it a SoCal habit.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
parallel parking, backbends, recognizing what song is playing in the background, eschewing obfuscation, being annoyed by phrases such as "eschewing obfuscation"
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Ha! Wouldn't I like to know.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I go through phases where I don't watch much TV, but I actually kinda love it. I've been seriously entertained by Breaking Bad, House of Cards, and Game of Throwns in the last couple years. And I love(d) Colbert as well as Jon Stewart and Bill Maher. Wondering who will replace Stewart... Anyhow, I like good shows. So do you hopefully. I used to think Reality TV was the devil (err, just plain lame), and while I essentially still dislike it, over time I've come to realize that's maybe because it's so unrealistic. Like the old adage, art mimics life, maybe same holds true for life imitating art. Sorta like Facebook and such. In real life, we tend to publicly feature only the best parts. It takes fiction to admit what's really going on.

Too many good movies to list. Love anything by Wes Anderson (even if that's trite, and even if his recent stuff isn't as good), and many things by many others. Wish I could have lived Romancing the Stone. A while back, Drive rocked my world, and I saw it twice in the theater (unusual for me).

As for books, I am not a voracious reader of late (other than reading and writing all day at work), especially of fiction. (Ha - based on above, I guess I get my fiction fix from TV). If only I had a year off to get through The Infinite Jest... DFW rules.

Music: again, too much to list. A few big likes in the last 5 years that come to mind are Neutral Milk Hotel, Dandy Warhols, Tapes n' Tapes, Eleanor Friedberger, Edward Sharpe, Grizzly Bear, LCD Soundsystem, Au Revoir Simone, Animal Collective (even though they say Panda Bear is cooler), Suicide, Vampire Weekend, Santigold, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah. All time faves? Velvet Underground, Simon and Garfunkel, Joy Division, Jane's Addiction, Jimi Hendrix, etc. to the power of infinity. I also like jazz and classical.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, hydrogen, phosphorus, and sulfur -- so I've heard

(apparently I'm into science analogies; see "What I'm doing with my life" above)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
what I should do next (on both a mundane and grand scale); people I know; how to squelch my cat's continual reign of terror upon my apartment--what's with the rubber band obsession and having to knock *everything* onto the floor? I'm losing earrings like socks in the wash.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
happy hour, dinner, movie, resting.... the goal is often some kind of cultural event, but that's not always feasible.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I don't think Macs are all that.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are interested in getting to know me. I'll be your Buddha call, but not your booty call!

I'll also admit that I wouldn't mind having a guy in my life who is handy with tech support. I could use a hand in this realm.

Oh and... if you don't sport V-neck t-shirts on a regular basis.
