My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Back to being single after nearly a decade. Mostly happy, somewhat sleepy, terribly funny. I will probably confuse you (I was once told that I have about 75% of a conversation with the remainder occurring in my head). Nearly infinite capacity for snark, miniscule capacity for mean (which is generally unused). Oh yes, and I sometimes type incomplete sentences and put periods at the end of them.

Exactly one dog I have ever met didn't like me, and that wasn't my fault (good story though, if you want to ask). I have yet to meet an unfriendly cat, guinea pig, hamster, horse, ferret, or other mammal commonly kept by humans.

I am not currently boyfriend material. I am available as a fun date or a pretty awesome friend. If you have fun on our first date, let's have a second date, and so on. Also, I'm not bitter and I didn't date for a loooong time to ensure that I'm being fair.

I'm emotionally stable and capable of checking my baggage although, by now, my remaining baggage fits neatly in the overhead compartment.

I'm not saying never again, just not now.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I have a job with the City of Chicago that I enjoy enormously. I will even talk about it if I have had an hour or three to cool down after work.

I'm trying to rebuild a social life as many of my friends are now parents and super-busy. I have been rebuilding through volunteering and finding different interest based groups to check out. So far, so good.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
As it turns out, I'm pretty good at dating and sort of awesome at all that listening I do
being a kick-ass uncle
seeing the absurd in the familiar (which should totally be a word in German or Sanskrit or something)
ridiculousity (also making up words)
obscure references
procrastinating
Reading people
Reading books
Hijinks
Making chicken soup in a pressure cooker, from scratch
Making homemade pizza also from scratch (except the sauce, I don't boil the tomatoes down but I do combine ingredients)
Wearing interesting socks
Sticking it to the man. Really.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Either my eyes, my smile or my sexy, sexy behind.

The aquarium with fake jellyfish, Super Grover, and Gary the Mold-A-Rama lion on my desk at work.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
1. Yes, I have favorite books. Many of them. We'll discuss later and at great length, if you want.
2. Caddyshack, Casablanca, The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus, Wet Hot American Summer and more that I don't feel like typing now.
3. The Simpsons (still), Buffy, Dr. Who (original and re-boot), edit: had to remove Sherlock as series three makes baby Jesus cry, cough Downton Abbey cough, Nature, Brooklyn 99. The League (which is as close as I get to fantasy sports). I dislike anti-heroes in television.
4. If it's good, I'll listen. Favorites change from hour to hour. I tend to like music but don't really care enough to differentiate that like into taste.
Exceptions: Tilly and the Wall is awesome. So is The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald.
5. I will only eat things that were once alive, like plants and animals. And salt, it's a rock we eat, how crazy is that?
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. A towel
2. A daily dose of absurdity, usually in the form of my socks
3. Lemonade/Iced Tea from Trader Joe's
4. Rain and Thunderstorms
5. The printed word
6. Parenthetical statements
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Things that may never happen
Death and the nature of consciousness and how they interact
The nature of time
Danger
Repelling Zombies/Commies
How lucky I am to live in an age of miracles and wonders
Eating rocks and how crazy that is
How to beat you at Scrabble or Words with Friends
Why is there no Words with Fiends, it could be nice for jail inmates or demons.
Why so many women include a picture of themselves at a gun range in their profiles. Update: Gun range photo appears to have been replaced with the Covered in Mud Photo®
Why so many people misunderstand the "most private thing you'll admit" question. It's not asking your most private thing. It's asking for the most private you'll admit. The answer to that can not logically be, "it's too private" if you answered any other questions!
Okay, I just spent 30 minutes moderating photos for OkCupid. Dear God, ladies I am so so sorry. We're not all like that. I swear I'm not like that. Guys are seriously the pits.
Why does Vivaldi's Spring Concerto make me weep like I'm at a puppy funeral?
I recently got my first tattoo, I love it and I am considering how long before my next one and the next one and the one after that...
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Kind of crabby. Or napping with my cats. Probably eating pickles at some point.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have the second most hilarious disease on the planet, Narcolepsy (Tourett's is funnier) and I hate it. Really really hate it. And I do not have severe symptoms. I am happy to answer questions about it if you are curious.

I dislike giraffes due to childhood trauma.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are in Chicago or 1) a reasonable distance from CTA/Metra or 2) love to drive into Chicago.

Your list of six things includes something I haven't seen in a list before.

You are poised on the precipice of world domination and need a good henchman. I'm pretty damn loyal, strong and smart. I also have no interest in ruling anything larger than a city so I'll not stab you in the back or betray you. Just don't remove my brain for use in a robot body.

You don't think it's edgy to describe yourself as un-PC. C'mon really? Saying you're un-PC in 2014 is utterly meaningless. Unless you're just trying to say you're a rude jerkface.

The End.
