Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
The thing is, I'm a big dork. It's hard to overstate my geek
aptitude, but I've got many fingers in many nerdy pies. So maybe
check your pies for finger holes, and if you find some, I'm
That being said, there's certainly more to me as well. I rather
enjoy going out dancing, catching shows, and enjoying the lovely
parks around the city. Oh, and I love coffee shops but I dislike
Anyway, let's hang out and do science! And beer is science too.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work with people with mental-disabilities. It's at times
dangerous and stressful, but at mostly extremely rewarding.
I'm also looking into an apprenticeship in minor villainy. Stuff
like stealing socks out of the dryer and misplacing car keys.
Tipping over lawn gnomes. I'm nefarious.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My butt, apparently. I don't get to see it, generally, so I'm not
sure why it's so amazing, but I'm told it is.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I'm getting myself back into reading books on the regular. So far,
this has meant revisiting an awful lot of Vonnegut as well as
discovering that I really like Terry Pratchett... just in time to
understand the true tragedy of his death.
I've been binging on Netflix lately. House of Cards is still great,
and I still end up in the fetal position after some episodes.
Movies are good. I like my silly comedies a la Dumb and Dumber, but
I also find great delight in more cerebral films like 2001 and
The other day, I made a lazy-man's risotto by just mixing fried
mushrooms with brown rice and coating in alfredo sauce. It was good
enough that I may never cook proper risotto again. I mean, unless
you ask me.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
It's a shorter list them six. I could never do without friends,
knowledge, and Zorb, the imaginary flying space lemur who tells me
to burn things.
Everything else is superfluous.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Brevity and jocularity aside here, this is something that's been on
my mind a lot lately. I've always identified as a feminist. I'm
progressive and all for equality, so feminism was clearly quite
fitting with my worldview. However, it's only recently that I've
really begun to gain an appreciation of what it all truly even
I used to celebrate movies like Fifth Element, and the mindset was
always, "Even though she's a woman, she's strong. Yay feminism!"
And that pretty much highlights my own misunderstandings of the
past twenty-some years. A better example, I should think, is Samus
Aran of Metroid fame. With Samus, her happening to be a woman is
not a strong part of her character, and it never needed to be.
"She's strong, incidentally she's a woman." Christ but isn't that a
much healthier way to think about things. I'm very, very ashamed
that it's taken me so long to recognize the difference. And now I
can see how little the latter is represented in popular media, and
that's a problem.
Anyway, jocularity back on. 'Boobies' is a fun word to say.
Incidentally, so is 'weiner.'
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Drinking beer and playing the sort of board games that make Catan
look like Monopoly. Also sometimes playing Catan. I mean, it's
still a good game.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I once did naked squats in a river in a forest at two in the
morning with a log on my shoulders.
That's a lot of prepositions!

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You've lost yourself to dance and you need a partner, maybe you
have a new game and you need an extra player, or you're willing to
show me all the best hikes around here.
Or, you're Around Schwarzenegger, you've come back from the future,
and I need to come with you if I want to live.
