My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
You might like me.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Thinking; cracking grins; in broad strokes, aiming for what everyone else is (even if all our means differ). (Also, being an ultra-junior professor.)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
answering e-mail within 2 weeks; fashioning arcane sheet/pillow/mattress arrangements (get at me, girlz); dickin' around on the internet; obfuscating my true talents out of Midwestern-pattern discomfort with overt self-promotion.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Probably some misleading stuff, save for the fact that I am EXTREMELY HANDSOME. (I haven't mentioned that yet? The fact that I'm DISTRACTINGLY ATTRACTIVE?)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Infinite Jest; The Pale King; David Foster Wallace essay collections; stapled piles of David Foster Wallace's signed restaurant receipts; Every Love Story Is a Ghost Story; In The Lake of the Woods; American Pharaoh; American Pastoral; Portnoy's Complaint (sexxxxxxy fer shur); When She Was Good; Friday Night Lights (the original book); most of Irvine Welsh's stuff; To Hate Like This Is to Love Forever; I'll cut this short, so see also "bunch of pedantic crap you shouldn't be too concerned with unless you're weirdly daring."

Movies (nothing ridiculously arthouse): There Will Be Blood; The Big Lebowski; Barry Lyndon; Fargo; Apocalypse Now; Goodfellas; the two Godfathers of repute; No Country for Old Men; Pulp Fiction; 2001; Boogie Nights; The Social Network; Snatch; Step Brothers (I'll rush to the defense of this choice); Blades of Glory (this, too); The Messenger; Rushmore; Mulholland Drive (need to see more Lynch); Inside Llewyn Davis; A Serious Man; Dr. Strangelove.

TV: The Wire ("He really went with that first?" Yes. Some cliches are cliches because they are true and deserve to be uttered/expressed often.); Game of Thrones; Mad Men; Treme; Twin Peaks; stand-up specials; very random Food Network; College Football telecasts; I mean, this probably already pegs my taste, so, yeah, now you know.

Special Entry: Harris' Phone Corner; Harris' Foam Corner.

Music: Not too exclusive. The Hold Steady and Lucero stand out. Usually more interested in other people's musical interests. (Also, Hawkwind. HAWWWWWKWIND.)

Food: "I eat your Vindaloo. I EAT IT UP." (Alright, no more oblique half-evasions, I get it.)
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
my computer ("How interesting."); a set of 35 or so books from my library; self-respect; IPA; my pea coat; something I don't have yet but which will be essential.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
hifalutin crap; what it takes to be satisfied; football; MS Word functions; what's up with this "Detroit" and "cars" thing.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
[CLASSIFIED -- PLEASE INQUIRE AT LOCAL NSA BRANCH]
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Once, on a lonely Sunday, I decided to fill out an OKCupid profile.

(I know.)
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.

AND/OR
