Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I like (good) music, watching independent movies, and hockey. Yeah,
odd combination, I know. I'm a pretty level-headed person, but I
like to have fun too, usually when music, old friends, and/or
drinking is involved. I like going out to eat, but also cook pretty
regularly. Note: this is not to imply I'm actually a GOOD cook.
However, I have not died as the result of anything I've made, as
far as I can tell.
Technically, I'm an aerospace engineer, which also allows me to
call myself a "rocket scientist". However, if you're hoping I have
a pocket protector, I'm afraid I will disappoint you. I can acquire
one though, if necessary.
I like all (okay, most) things British, including but not limited
to: clothes, beer, music, and TV. Food? Ehh....well, fish and chips
I'm a big Flyers fan too, which really surprises people for some
reason. They're always like "YOU like hockey??"
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working during the day, BBQ'ing at night (winter or summer!).
Thinking about future travel and restaurant destinations. Just got
back from living in southern Maryland for 8 months, so I'm really
just enjoying being in the city again.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making mix CDs, and extensive hand-crafted liner notes to go with
them. Mix CDs...a dying art.
Also, as long as we're in bragging-about-myself mode, which is a
rarity, I'd have to say I'm really good at being honest. I'm pretty
convinced it's always better in the long run.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Band of Horses. The Jam. Metric. The Radio Dept. I've never been a
hip hop fan, but I really like Mala Rodriguez (Spanish rapper).
Check her out if you don't know her!
I listen to Car Talk every week, even though I know nothing about
cars. Radiolab and Freakonomics podcasts. Update: RIP Car
Books: reading The Post-American World 2.0 by Fareed Zakaria. It's
not all doom-and-gloom! Post-script: apparently, Fareed likes to
plagiarize, which I found very disappointing.
Food: Indian. Oysters. Cheese (on a plate, with a side of beer). A
good bacon cheeseburger. Cheesesteaks. Banh mi and pho.
Le film: Almodovar (e.g., Volver, Broken Embraces, The Skin I Live
In). It turns out, I only like Penelope Cruz when she's speaking
Spanish. Quadrophenia. 24 hr Party People. This is England.
L'Auberge Espangole. A Clockwork Orange. The Simpsons Movie.
Slapshot. (500) Days of Summer. Airplane!. Lars and the Real Girl.
Submarine. Random documentaries and foreign films I find on
on-demand. According to Netflix, I like "Spanish language movies
with a strong female lead". Ha! It's true.
TV: Any Anthony Bourdain-based shows, Locked Up Abroad. Air
Disasters (yes, it's true). I've watched almost all of Season 1 of
House of Cards in about 2 days, so I guess I like that too.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
One-and-a-half four packs of Samuel Smith Oatmeal Stout.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
"If a boy will ever be born who can swim faster than a
(Name that show!)
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Filling out internet dating forms. Wait, that's not typical. That's
just this one night. I swear!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I like sardines.
Also...I'm actually 5' 6 1/2". But, okcupid didn't give
instructions about whether we're supposed to round off or truncate,
so I took matters into my own hands.
