My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a smart guy, passionate, often overly honest, very outgoing, sometimes a little too nice. I'm told I can be pretty intense, and I can very quickly switch from quite serious to making jokes and back. I tend to ramble sometimes because I always prefer explaining something fully than to risk that someone misunderstands me. I write like I speak: I've been told this profile sounds exactly like me, so, er, imagine a somewhat deeper voice reading this to you, while your view of the screen is occasionally blocked by wildly gesticulating hands. (I'm also an over-user of parentheses.) I'm a good listener and problem solver, though not great at not trying to solve a problem while listening to one.

I love baseball & football, crossfit, good food, British humor, walking through the City, and form/function art like architecture and furniture. I'm the type of person that has to learn everything about something when I'm interested in it. I lack the ability to talk to kids because I have no idea what to say to them, and I've discovered I'm not great at appreciating pictures they draw for me effusively enough. I do like kids though - they're too cute not to like. Born and bred a New Yorker, I've lived in eight states before moving to Philly. Looking forward to seeing what this city has to offer.

Anyway, I could ramble for a while more - talking about ourselves is a skill few of us lack, I think, and I'm not a particularly private person. Instead, I'll just end this here.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a lawyer, clerking for a judge for a year. I managed to get through law school without ever giving up the dream of being a professional idealist. It helps that I used to be an engineer, so I already did the job-that's-potentially-interesting-but-moderately-soulless-and-pays-well - a law firm was not for me. Long-term, with my instinctive paper-writing response to structural legal problems, I hope to be a law prof, but we'll see.

Other than job stuff though, I spend my time reading way too much news on the internet. I plan to pick crossfit back up one of these days, and maybe when I have time for hobbies in three years or so, learn photography or Spanish.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Logic and math puzzles, drawing weirdly appropriate analogies out of thin air, being unnecessarily blunt, picking up new skills, karaoke (ok, no, that's a lie), being spontaneously funny, flopping when attempting to be spontaneously funny, not getting embarrassed regardless of any lapse in my ability to be spontaneously funny, and minesweeper--seriously, I used to draw crowds.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm a proud nerd.

Whatever company I'm in (lawyers, engineers, scientists), I'm prone to occasionally making groan-worthy jokes. I also have greater stamina for conversations about minutia in obscure topics than anyone else I know, hopefully not in an annoying way, but just because I'm genuinely curious.

Oh, and I'm also the only person I know (aside from my equally nerdy sister) who liked the logic games section of the LSAT. I do those puzzles on airplanes all the time, for fun! (Maybe this should have been in the "most private thing" section...)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Absolute favorite: The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. Or, well, probably all 5 books of the remarkably inaccurately named Hitchhiker's Trilogy. Otherwise, I read a lot of non-fiction, and I've only recently been expanding my contemporary fictional horizons. I've discovered I like Haruki Murakami and China Mieville quite a bit though.

Movies? In no particular order, High Fidelity, Boondock Saints, The Back to the Future Trilogy (believe me, if you watch them back-to-back-to-back and pay attention to the script, you'll count them as one movie too), Love Actually, Catch Me If You Can, Pitch Perfect. As far as TV, my DVR list is waaay too long to admit to at the moment, but for a small sampling of currently running shows: Dr. Who, HIMYM, Homeland, Archer, Suits, and pretty much anything HBO touches (though oddly I can't get into True Detective).

Music: I feel like I haven't updated my musical tastes since shortly after college, but I'll try almost anything else that's not country. Recently been trying out indie stuff, and I like it all. Some older staples in my rotation include Blue October, Collective Soul, Led Zeppelin, The Who, Lady Gaga, Regina Spektor, Our Lady Peace, and a few select musicals I sing embarrassingly loudly in the car.

And I like food too much to really choose a favorite. Middle Eastern/Greek is the cuisine I'm least likely to ever not be in the mood for, but Japanese is probably still my favorite. These days, though, I'm eating mostly paleo, so that looks more like this.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
friends, reddit, some life within walking distance, cross sums puzzles, the New York Football Giants, and my email, which I check just a little too often.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How technology is changing society. The future of journalism and how law must change to allow for it. How to get people reliable access to information, specifically the information needed for self-governance and a way to filter the lies. State action doctrine. The perils and benefits of Big Data. Racism, sexism, homophobia, false equivalences between "left" and "right" in mainstream discourse, and how to get cops to stop beating the crap out of brown and black people. The abuse of national security rhetoric and the state secrets privilege. Our society's intricate weaving of the cultural, political and legal, and our unfathomably stupid political elites.

Also, food. I like food. Mmmmm.... Bacon......... Sorry, what was I saying?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
If I'm in town, I'm probably going out with friends. I wouldn't say it ever seems "typical" though. Somehow the Fridays just float on by.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I've never seen any of the Godfather or Indiana Jones movies. Horrible, I know.
