My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I think it says it all that I put off writing this until weeks after making most of the rest of the profile. Summing up is hard. I try to roll with the punches and not take things too seriously, which is helpful in academia. I like learning about interesting, trivial stuff, the weirder the better.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm in grad school at the moment working on a Ph.D in computer science. If I'm not in the lab or at home working on homework, then I might be at the Sacramento Comedy Spot doing improv, or at a bar singing karaoke.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm pretty good with computers, and even though I work with them all day, I'm usually up for fixing yours. I have a decent voice, and I was even in an a cappella music group in undergrad (shameless plug: davisloungelizards.com). Nowadays, the only singing I do is karaoke when I get a chance.

I also enjoy writing short stories, although I don't do it often.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm probably the least qualified to answer this question. I guess the first thing people pick up on is probably my rather sardonic sense of humor.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books - Stuff by Stanislav Lem, Vernor Vinge, and Greg Egan (basically, science fiction). Philip K. Dick is also quite good, but I have to be in the mood for mindbending

Outside of the sci-fi literary ghetto I enjoy, I also like David Foster Wallace, Mark Twain, and Haruki Murakami

Movies - The Manchurian Candidate (old one), The Usual Suspects, Cinema Paradiso

Shows - Firefly (pretty much anything by Joss Whedon, actually), Home Movies, That Mitchell & Webb Look

Music - The Mountain Goats, Barenaked Ladies, The Decemberists

Food - I'm always a fan of a good stew, or just beans and rice.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Some good music - there are a few CDs I would definitely put in my desert island bindle
2. Friends
3. Books
4. Coffee/tea
5. A nice walk
6. Coconut radio - that's just good sense
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I tend to plan stuff out in my head beforehand a lot. I run conversations over and over internally to prepare for possible ways the conversation could go, but I find that if I'm not careful I can blow things out of proportion this way.

Whenever I hear songs, I try to think of other songs with the same chord progressions that would blend well, like for an a cappella music group.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
If I can arrange it, I like to be in a local pub hanging out with friends. After a long week at work, sometimes settling down with a video game is just the thing, but I am generally up for anything.
