My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a perfectionist, which occasionally has an upside. I'm friends with a lot of contradictions. I'm attracted to intelligence, creativity and adventure. I'm pretty skilled at watching TV.

Some things I love and wish I'd do more: hiking, climbing, aiming, throwing, catching, finding le mot juste, tennis, spending enough time with friends and family to get to the thoughts that have been germinating in our dark corners, playing along on guitar, and doing things we're on OKC to do. (There's a lot I like about being single, but there are a few things I really don't.)

Some things I love and do almost enough of: using Turing-complete languages to solve problems, reading the New Yorker and its ilk.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I write software, and am about to join a company in the educational-technology space. My hope is to make a decent living while helping level the playing field. I spend as much time as I can with my friends, who are people who try to enjoy life, are kind and honest, like to think, learn and explore, and are pretty damn hilarious.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.

Books:
Anna Karenina: it kind of scares me how keen an observer Tolstoy was, in that I wonder why the rest of us should ever bother to try to write anything else.
The Master and Margarita
The Great Wall of China (short stories by Kafka -- esp. Investigations of a Dog)
I'll pick up Heidegger or Foucault when I feel like reading something just out of my grasp -- and I sometimes do.
I read The Worst-Case Scenario Survival Handbook cover-to-cover on a plane once. Unfortunately I don't remember a damn thing. Well, I remember that it explained how to improve your chances of survival when falling from a great height, but I don't remember the explanation.
Monkey Hill - short story by Paul Theroux (thanks to an OKCupid person who tracked down this title from my vague description of it)

Music:
I go through micro and macro phases. Old favorites include Pavement, Billie Holiday, Bikini Kill, Biggie Smalls, Magnetic Fields. Beck's Stereopathetic Soulmanure comes into the rotation from time to time. I go to the symphony and opera once in a while. I like Celia Cruz in the right time and place. There's no way I'm going to cover this topic, so I'll just stop here.

Shows:
OK, I'm way out of date, but I am catching up on the Wire. It's still really good, in case you were wondering.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. the ability to count
6. lots of other things
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
how we learn. Why I don't learn faster. Why I don't learn some things at all. Whether I'll meet someone spectacular, or whether I'm the biggest loser. Lunch. What's the deal with many Republicans. Software design patterns. Why I didn't think to say that thing that time, and whether it's too late to say it now. Where I'd like to travel.
On a typical Friday night I am
