My self-summary
Mostly harmless.

What? More?

The overriding passion in my life has always been for knowledge. I have always been insatiably curious and any historical or cultural or scientific unknown that stirs my interest will be thoroughly explored and researched. I don't always keep my nose in a book, however. I like life experience, taking it out, chopping it up. I signed up for this site hoping to facilitate some of those adventures and to meet new people. This all sounds rather serious now and probably isn't representative of my personality at all. I'm actually rather silly.
What I’m doing with my life
I do building information modeling for an architectural engineering firm. Also, doing some writing and trying to learn how to talk to computers in code again.
I’m really good at
Math/geometry, Bistromathics (really just a sub-field of math), cooking, fileting, shucking, baking, eating, poetry, absurdity, grammar, card and board games, trivia, conversating, being the big spoon
The first things people usually notice about me
Up to you , I suppose. I am fairly tall??? Have 10 fingers?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'm a book/art/culture nut so my lists could be fairly endless, but I'll try and restrict myself to a few faves. Always best to leave some things undiscovered anyway, right?

Books: Joyce, Atwood, Pynchon, Ellroy, Chandler, Mitchell, Amis
Currently reading: Night Film by Marisha Pessl

Movies: Bit of an old and foreign film buff -- Dr. Strangelove, Sunset Blvd., High and Low, Rear Window, Masculin Feminin, Raising Arizona, Bridge on the River Kwai, most Coens, Hitchcock, Kurosawa, Wilder, Renoir

TV: Breaking Bad, The Wire, Peep Show, Prime Suspect, IASIP, Venture Bros., Archer, Justified, Fawlty Towers, Mr. Show, Comedy Bang Bang, Louie, Simpsons, etc.

Music: Talking Heads, Blur, Sonic Youth, Deerhunter, Pavement, The Kinks, GBV, Jackie Mittoo, reggae (dub - King Tubby and A Pablo), Big Boi/Outkast, Broken Social Scene, Class Actress, Haim, Woods, Janelle Monae, Kid Cudi and many, many others

Food: Mexican, Italian and French are my faves, but I'm not a picky eater. Would perform unspeakable acts for warmed/toasted goat cheese
The six things I could never do without
1. Tea -- I drink loads of the stuff, always unsweetened, sometimes iced, fan of all types except Lapsang Souchong and Earl Grey. Seriously, Charles Grey can take his bergamot and go fuck himself. Well, except for the reform stuff and abolition of slavery. That's ok, I suppose.

2. My chef knife -- Wusthof. 10". Indispensable in the kitchen. Useful for making delicious things.

3. Glasses/contacts -- This may seem a bit of a cop out, but I have horrible vision and would probably have died in early adolescence if I had born in the pre-spectacle age. If you like migraines, playfully try on my glasses while we're out at a bar. Guaranteed headache!

4. Keys -- I'm slightly paranoid and obsessive about forgetting and losing my keys. I always hold them as I'm leaving my apartment just to be sure.

5. Lighter -- Useful for tons of stuff besides the obvious. Besides, Prometheus went through some shit to bring us fire. The least I can do is carry around a portable version.

6. My rubber plant -- I love nature but have always had horrible success growing plants -- except for my rubber plant! I've successfully not-killed it for about 7 or 8 years now and watched it expand to about 12x its original size. It's like part of the family now.
On a typical Friday night I am
Up to anything really. Most likely scenarios:

Out drinking with friends or co-workers
Checking out some sort of show -- maybe a play, music more likely
Home alone decompressing. (Window To My World: this generally takes the form of making some sort of elaborate dinner, possibly including an extravagant dessert, while listening to some music or maybe a podcast. I then may -- or may not! -- eat the dinner while watching a movie, catching up on TV or binge-reading whatever I'm reading at the moment. This Friday night pretty much always involves a joint, maybe a cocktail or two. (You might, at this point, be thinking that this belongs in the "private thing" category. You'd be wrong! There's better there!))
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I played the Felony Game at a cocktail party once and realized that I've probably committed a lot of felonies in my day. Not too much of that these days though, and nothing violent or anything. Just... felonies!
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 22–55
  • Near me
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
Well, if you found anything here interesting or piquing of interest, feel free to get in touch, obviously. Otherwise --

-- You'd like to check out the whales exhibit at the Natural History museum
-- You like to read and talk books and might want to go to a reading or other literary-type event
-- You like leaving the city sometimes
-- You'll go see old movies with me
-- You'll go see new bands with me
-- You'd like to hang out and cook in the kitchen with me
-- You're tall and/or brunette (This last is just a mild preference, not a deal-breaker by any means...)
