My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am a feminist software engineer with vegan shoes, a budgeting spreadsheet, and three extra bicycles who is athletically incompetent, has never been drunk, cuts my own hair, owns a fifteen-foot-tall steel-and-vinyl geodesic dome, drinks two gallons of water per day, sleeps in jeans and loves to give up things.

I am generous, diabetic, and extroverted.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Programming at a software company, getting to know my cat, talking about the times I went to Burning Man, and running a strictly extracurricular volunteer park friends' group strictly on the side. We're not Quakers. We do things to help take care of a big park in West Philly. Try to guess which one.

I used to be an accountant. I retired, had an epic retirement party, went to school, and unretired.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Cranium, Excel, definitions.

Packing things into a trunk. The two rules are: put in firm shapes with few and flat sides first, and leave no gap unfilled.

Interpreting authority. Guessing quantities.

I really like boring things. I can speak to documents.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My socioeconomic class.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Eating Animals by Jonathan Safran Foer, the overwhelming case against the factory farming system that produces most of the animals eaten in this country. Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov, which was recommended to me as a vocabulary builder and which I loved because it was funny. Oil on the Brain: Petroleum's Long, Strange Trip to Your Tank by Lisa Margonelli. I enjoy learning about supply chains.

Movies: Little Miss Sunshine, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Harry Potter 7 Part 2, I Heart Huckabees. Napoleon Dynamite, for the way it teaches us that if you are true to yourself, the world will come around to you.

My favorite movie is Clueless. Every second is brilliant.

Shows: Broad City. They're geniuses.

Music: Steve Winwood, Of Montreal, Beirut, Architecture in Helsinki, Hot Chip, Tom Waits, the Great Unknown, Final Fantasy, Feist, Small Houses, Regina Spektor, the Blow, the Knife, Joanna Newsom, and Lady Gaga. My favorite song of all time, the best song I've ever heard, is "Ready for the Floor" by Hot Chip, the one that goes, "Do it, do it, do it, do it, do it, do it, do it now."

Food: I became a vegetarian initially for resource conservation reasons, then a vegan for every reason. It's the thing in my life I'm happiest about, the thing I think about when I'm in Neverland and need to fly.

I don't eat any sugar that's been separated from its mother plant. For example, I eat apples, but not apple juice. I eat corn, but not corn syrup. I eat bees, but not honey.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Medium-sized jars of fruit, fiber, non-fiction audiobooks, NPR, my backpack-pannier (it clips onto the back rack of a bike so my back doesn't get sweaty), my desk. Much of my life is accommodating my back.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I don't think. I sing.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
On the scene. I like to go to parties with electronic music and dance.

But I do other things! My friends are always having gallery openings, art installations, performances, and so on, so I go to those.

Also, house parties. Also, online tutorials. And chores for my non-profit.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have three potatoes on a shelf above my bed. I'd be a Slytherin.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You like NPR, you're OK with biking everywhere, you think it would be helpful if you dated someone who doesn't drink, or you like to dance. However, you should not refrain from messaging me if these things are not true. What I'm saying is: don't not message me if you don't think it would be helpful if you dated someone who doesn't drink.
