My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a midwesterner looking forward to working in Indy starting in September. I'm in Saint Paul 'til then.

My "about" tab may be a little short on personality and long on lists. The questions tab is a better bet (unless you're just skimming for movie recommendations, of course); I usually browse "unacceptable answers" and "have explanations" there.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Being the devil's advocate. I like having logic, absurdity and argument in my life. I'm the sort who takes the LSAT for kicks.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My widow's peak (natural dracula hair), if they approach from the right angle; and my large nose from any other.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

and sports and comedy

Literature. My go-to literature is a $1 Shakespeare tome, the Atlantic and a short list of blogs. As a grad student, I don't get much other normal reading done; and my liberal-arts education burned me out on books for a while there, too. It's picked up a little thanks to ebooks. Back when, I was a fan of Dostoyevsky, Saramago, Nietzsche, Gogol, Tennessee Williams and the rest.

Movies. Volver, Ratatouille, What about Bob?, Fanny and Alexander, Do the Right Thing, The Host, Ran, Infernal Affairs and The Long Goodbye.

TV shows. Cowboy Bebop and The Wire are my favorites by a mile. Among current TV shows: Modern Family, the Colbert Report, Archer, Orange is the New Black and Washington Week.

Radio shows. Marketplace, This American Life, Morning Becomes Eclectic and The World.

Music. Nirvana, Cee-lo Green, MF DOOM, Amy Winehouse, Janelle Monae, Moloko, Copy and Bonobo are tops. Beyond that, there's just Flamenco and anything in Portuguese (like Fado and MPB). I find new music on KCRW's Eclectic24, Pandora and 8tracks. In rotation now: Ray Charles.

Food. The less processed it is, the better. Indian/Himalayan food is my favorite, though Greek is also up there. I'm glad that Pel'meni place has been reincarnated; it was one of my favorites back when.

Sports. I like running, downhill skiing, backpacking and kayaking. I ran a single marathon (very slowly) and went on several longish backpacking trips back in the day. I hope to get around to doing that sort of thing again soon, and have long planned to try out similar stuff (trail running, orienteering). I'd like to learn how to swim better for exercise, but the university's swimming courses seem to fill up awfully quickly.

I'll enjoy watching a game now and then, but I've never invested in following players or grown attached to a team. I watch The Voice and think that's got same idea, marketing-wise. See, I understand sports!

I also like abstract board games which are, um, mind sports (someone on okc suggested), though I'm in it more for the rules than competition.

Comedy. If you have read this far, I suggest you check out @markleidner, @rolldiggity, @DemetriMartin and @Jeffely on Twitter. Good stuff, I say.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Language, cities, game theory, prices (my job, soon)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I never clean my gmail inbox and just hit 10,000 unread messages today after almost ten years of use. Also, I really wish I could change the address I picked way back then.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If you also want to do something and not have a terrible time, let's attempt it... a show at the comedy club, concert, visit to a local tourist draw, run, or just a meeting in a bar or coffee shop, say.

If your taste matches mine, recommend stuff. Anyone who counts more than one thing above among his/her favorites is my kind of people to a first approximation.

Meeting in person is preferable at some point, instead of trying to become pen pals or stretch small talk to its limit.
