Obese tuba-loving geek
(to clarify: I am obese, tubas are just big-boned)
Adore a good argument, have no shame in sharing enthusiasm with
others, and have a tendency to sing very loudly at almost any
moment. Pretty annoying for most people, but my macaw likes it, so
I don't bother trying to change.
For those of you that don't take the "looking for" section
seriously: It says I am looking for friends because I am. For
reals, I'm just trying to expand my tiny circle with interesting

Play tuba every chance I get, noodle around at learning piano,
because why not?

Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
* remembering the melody, but not the lyrics
* quoting movies, TV, and Mitch Hedberg
* spouting trivia
* laughing too loudly
* demonstrating "too much" forcefulness of opinion. Do please
dissent, lively debates are good. The worst thing you can do is
smile and nod when you think I'm wrong... When I find out that I am
wrong, I will interpret it as you thinking I am not worth the
effort of helping.

I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Chances are if I meet your eyes, I smile. I think it might be a tic
at this point, because it's the same smile no matter what I'm
thinking or feeling.
If I don't "get it" and can't Google to find "it" out, I will ask.

Help your potential matches find common interests.
The Wheel of Time-- it is flawed and beautiful, and I re-listen to
it every year.
Star Trek -- in the middle of watching the whole series in story
chronological order. Thanks to Netflix for including the animated
series in your offering!
Buffy the Vampire Slayer, 'nough said.
Battlestar Galactica minus the last two episodes
Camille Saint-Saens Symphony No. 3 -- If you have seen Babe, the

Symphony Hall, and I could have died happy.

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Watching Star Trek. Currently on TNG season 6/DS9 season 1.
And also rewatching New Who. I think 9 is still my favorite.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am very afraid of serving as a page turner for pianists, despite
knowing how to read music and turn pages.
I go out of my way to avoid taking left turns.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
I dunno... Enjoy a good conversation?
You should not message me with one brief sentence. If you do, I
will either ignore you with disdain, send an insulting message
about laziness, or if you're really really lucky, I'll give you a
lesson on how to get someone interested in communicating in two to
