My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Here are some potentially meaningful and meaningless things about me:

Despite my screen name I moved here over four years ago (which I can no longer claim is new in any way and makes me wish I could change my stupid screen name).

I work in tech, but am a late adopter of most technology. I'm much more likely to be able to repair a dishwasher than make two apps properly sync on a phone.

I think sense of humor is a good proxy for intelligence (and may be also world view). A really good fit is probably my top priority.

I find it hard to reveal my best qualities in this kind of profile without sound contrived, cocky, or cheesy--I'm sure most people feel this way too.

I can draw a pretty accurate map of the continental US from memory.

I think one of the best things about the bay area is how easy it is to get to beautiful natural places. I try hard to take advantage.

Sometimes people say I take a long time telling stories because I give lots of asides and focus on somewhat obscure minutia. Fuck that, those same people are often egging me on and laughing.

I love San Francisco--wandering around the city is one of my favorite pastimes--but every new place that opens in my neighborhood is more absurd than the last. These businesses are parodies of what bay area rich people like. I know I'm part of the reason they're opening, and I even indulge in many of the things I mock, but I wish it would slow down.

I am pretty sure that when I get old-old I am going to be a crazy volunteer docent at some natural or historic point of interest. I will be happy learning and repeating deep obscure knowledge (and occasional made up details) on some random topic.

I think sarcasm should be expressed by context and not by tone.

I usually tell people my flights are 20-30 minutes earlier than they actually are because I hate risking the timeline at the airport, but also hate the argument over what an acceptable arrival time is.

People seem to like whiskey, it's alright. I think I prefer cognac.

My favorite place in the world is a rural county in Quebec, Canada.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I've always wanted a job I liked doing, felt good about, and paid me well enough to live comfortably. Although things could still be better in all three categories, I have at least reached a point where I don't feel too restless, designing electric car charging equipment.

Someday I would like to do something professionally noteworthy that has nothing to do with my current career.

Some other day I want to stop being an engineer and become a high school science teacher.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
-watching trashy television
-hiking in rivers
-reaching the top shelf in the kitchen
-making nachos
-using bullet points in emails
-making juice from bulk discount produce bought by my housemate
-reciting lines along with a movie I am watching when I have seen it before
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm skinny. I'm also kind of tall, so sometimes people think I am taller than I really am. And I look younger than I actually am. So apparently there's a lot to be deceived by. Aside from appearance I think I am pretty straight forward person.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Sophie's Choice, The Devil and the White City, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, Natural Capitalism, Guns Germs and Steel. I recently read The Son. It's kind of trashy, but I highly recommend it.

Music: Decemberists, The Cardigans, The Stars, Neil Young, Talib Kweli, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Jenny Lewis, Nas, Regina Spektor, Meiko,

Food: quality sashimi tuna, cherries, guava, creme brulee, baklava. The best meals I've ever had were a) fresh Halibut from a fish market in Alaska, and b) some beef off my friend's family's dairy farm in Idaho.

TV: many HBO series (I don't understand why I like Game of Thrones as much as I do, but, boy, do I like it), Modern Marvels, Veep, Parks and Recreation, Frontline, Chelsey Lately, The Inbetweeners, 30 Rock, Daily Show
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
goat cheese
dry sarcasm/irony
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How things work. Like public transit systems, or poaching an egg, or escalators.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I made a New Year's resolution to do more things on Friday and Saturday nights that were not just going to a bar or house party. Turns out this is a really easy resolution to keep in San Francisco (funcheapsf and sf gate are all you need). So now I go to comedy shows, or independent movies, or weird experimental theater shows, or art openings, or bars with friends. Also, staying in on Friday night is becoming more of a legit choice.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm not ready to admit anything private and meaningful, instead I'll just list some embarrassing things.

New format! Guess the lie:

When choosing to listen to music, I almost exclusively listen to female singer/songwriters
I have the theme, Japanese Tea Garden, as my gmail background.
I subscribe to fungi magazine
I raise chickens in my backyard.
I have eleven backpacks
