My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I've dressed up like Steve Zissou for the past few Halloweens and it takes longer and longer every year to stop dressing that way.

Lots of people say they like the way that I laugh. I also laugh at lots of things no one else does, for better or for worse. I'm known within my group of friends for having the keenest sense of observation, and therefore the strangest stories, because I place emphasis on setting and surrounding rather than plot when I'm narrating an event, and they take a lot longer than they need to. Some people like it that way, everyone else comes around eventually. It's possible that I'm trying to emulate some of my favorite writers when I tell stories, and that leads to me leaving a lot of indirect endings (some people call them "cliffhangers" I suppose, but there's nothing else coming next.)

The best magazine article I've ever read was in GQ (I'm as surprised as you are). It was about a man who lives near a major bridge across the Yangtze river that has an extremely high number of annual attempted suicides from people jumping off of it. He bought a moped, and decided to spend all day, every day, riding up and down the bridge (it's over a mile long) and stopping people from killing themselves. It was a real turning point in the way I think about - everything, I suppose.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a manager at a local cafe. I like the work, I like who I work with, and the flexibility in my schedule is mind-boggling. I took 3 months off two summers ago to go to Mexico and WWOOF/live in the DF, and came back into the fold without a hitch. I dabble in tennis, chess, and I'd love to go spend a long time in another country sometime soon again. Chile, Morocco, Azerbaijan and Montenegro top the list currently.

I'm very big on self improvement/learning/etc. One time I had a mouse in my apartment, and it scurried over me one night and I woke up and we were both scared. But the mouse never ran on my bed again. It learned from its mistakes, and I admire that.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Practicing my tennis swing in my very narrow apartment while drunk without actually breaking anything.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm growing my beard back out so that I can look like a longshoreman throughout the winter. If it isn't that, it's probably my very short shorts with mermaids and anchors on them.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
César Aira, Samuel Beckett, Roberto Bolaño, Don DeLillo, Eduardo Galeano, André Gide, Knut Hamsun, Herodotus, Michel Houellebecq, Kazuo Ishiguro, James Joyce, László Krasznahorkai, Jhumpa Lahiri, Tao Lin, V.S. Naipaul, Frank O'Hara, Enrique Vila-Matas, Virginia Woolf

Lost in Translation, The Life Aquatic, The Red Desert, The Turin Horse, The Autobiography of Nicolae Ceausescu, I Used to be Darker, The Chumscrubber, Hiroshima Mon Amour, Zodiac, Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives, Post Tenebras Lux, In the Mood for Love, Jodorowsky's Dune (Although if we are being perfectly honest, I basically don't watch movies most of the year, then watch 16-18 movies in 3 days at the Maryland Film Festival, and then stop watching movies again for a year.)

Things that I cook. Hungarian inspired braised dishes, French onion soup, curries, Welsh cakes, Spanish omelettes, beer bread, old fashioned roasts with mashed potatoes, anything I can put frozen peas into. Anything I can make a pan sauce for. Homemade pasta when all I have left is eggs and flour and an empty wine bottle.

Otis Redding, Future Islands, Frank Ocean. But I've actually been listening to slam poetry recently more than anything else.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
When I was 10 years old, I was really into basketball. My favorite player was Dennis Rodman. He was my Halloween costume that year. I have absolutely no clue why my parents allowed me to masquerade around in something not *that* far removed from blackface for an evening, but... there you have it.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If you want to gush about Frank O'Hara (or Frank Ocean, whatever), want to make food with me sometime, if you want someone to watch absurdly long art films with (Satantango, The Human Condition trilogy, etc.), if you think going to a driving range (with golf clubs and balls) even though you aren't really into golf sounds like a good time, or if you just want to do something completely normal like go to a bar or duckpin bowling or get coffee, I like those things too.
