My name is Matt and I can read. I learned it a while ago and I am
pretty good at it. Mostly just with letters and periods and commas
and things. The people part is a work in progress.
I also have really good vision and a preternatural interest in lit
keyboards. Please don't let this be a presumptive commentary on my
melatonin releasing capacity or my rhythms of the circadian type; I
like a lit keyboard in the sunshine just as well. Lastly, I
sometimes get poison ivy.
Lucky for you, I listen more than I speak. On a more serious note,
I have been in that middling New York casual dating scene for a
while without getting anywhere (obviously). I'm looking to get into
something more serious if this way that comes. Otherwise, it would
be great to find someone who doesn't make as much fun of my
sleeping habits as my brothers tend to do. As for what those habits
are, they ain't good...
What I’m doing with my life
By day I travel the interwebs making sure the younglings at CU have
a working email system. By night I travel around the city in a car
with the flashing lights, wear one of those jaunty caps, and shine
a flashlight like nobody's business.
I’m really good at
Differentiating dark colors from light ones.
The first things people usually notice about me
I am the doppelgänger of Biggie Smalls.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
A People's History of the United States and the Last of the
Band of Horses
It's Always Sunny in PA
The McLaughlin Group
Dammit pizza, you had me at "hello"
The six things I could never do without
Sodium, potassium, chloride, ATP, reactive oxygen species, and an
intrinsic ventricular escape rhythm.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Mutually assured destruction and whether the Higgs Boson really
exists. The modernist's obsession with parallax.
On a typical Friday night I am
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am your classic computer geek - not that modern geek with the
million dollar salary - just the classic kind with a windowless
basement office and a whole lot of carpal tunnel syndrome.
Actually, my office has plenty of windows though they are very,
very dirty. The part about the carpal tunnel is spot on, though.

You have between 4 and 11 fingers and stereoptic vision (although I
don't discriminate against those with lack of depth perception
through no fault of their own).
