My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
It doesn't bother me much to have red wine with fish or to be missing a button. But, to paraphrase Mr. Rogers, seeing people degrade one another just makes me so /mad/.

I like sweaters more than I own them. This is also true of cats, novel electronics, and elaborate costumes. I suppose it's true of books even though I do own a lot of them. I like cars just about as much as I own them and I don't have one.

It is no exaggeration to say that I'm inclined towards hyperbole. I'm probably more fond of contradictions than is good for me. I think most of formal reasoning is aesthetics, which doesn't make me enjoy it any less.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Oscillating between working and studying, and at longer and longer wavelengths it seems. Presently in the study phase, I am getting a PhD in statistics. I extrapolate that my next real job will last at least six years.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Boyish enthusiasm. And math. This includes boyish enthusiasm for math.

I read on the OKC blog that response rates are higher for men with photos showing off their abs. So I thought would just mention that I am also good at abs, and not have to post a tasteless photo.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That I seem taller than I am. I must act tall.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
In order to avoid pretense, here are some facts: in reverse order, these are the last ten books I read.

Leaving the Atocha Station (Ben Lerner),
The Beak of the Finch (Jonathan Weiner),
The Life of Insects (Victor Pelevin),
The Will To Change (bell hooks),
The Song of the Dodo (David Quammen),
Cold Mountain Poems (Han-Shan),
Soldiers of God (Kelly Clancy),
The English Patient (Michael Ondaatje) (beautiful book, couldn't stand the movie),
Mindfulness In Plain English (Gunaratana),
Despair (Nabakov)

He's not in the last 10 books, but I am passionate about Borges. If you like Borges, we are pretty much guaranteed to get along.

Neat scotch, novel beer. I have eaten raw horse. I'm interested in entomophagy. Call me a reactionary pomologist, but I think red delicious is still the best apple.

Lately I have been going through David Lynch and Werner Herzog. I love it, but to be honest, this can make watching a movie seem like a stressful way to spend an evening.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
- Discomfiture
- Perspicacity
- Asymptotics (but don't think I like it)
- Quiescence
- Enumeration
- Epiphany
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
different ways a person can laugh, different ways people can make eye contact.

You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
you're joyful, enthusiastic, crazy smart, and crazy kind. Also, if you smell great and think I smell great. That we can't check this out in advance is a big problem with OKC.

And if you like me, you should message me. I (usually) don't message girls on OKC without getting a star or message from them. Given the flood of attention ladies get on this site, this seems like the best way to avoid wasting everyone's time.

In addition, if you ask me nicely on OKC, I will write you a short song on a topic of your choice (whether or not we actually meet up). This sometimes takes me a while, though, so please don't be insulted if I don't get to it right away.

ps I live in SF, but go to school in Berkeley.
