My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm silly, sometimes stoic, endlessly curious and kind. I love riddles and hefty books, and I have a smokin' lexicon. I can't help but talk to dogs and babies in a ridiculous, high-pitched voice, which I find slightly embarrassing in retrospect. I tend to overtip.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Come the end of the summer, returning to Manhattan after a stint in Syracuse for grad school. Very much excited to be doing so!

I'm looking forward to getting back to NYC, but I sometimes long to grab a single suitcase and go run around Argentina or the Galapagos or Thailand for two weeks. When I was a kid I wanted to be an astronaut (yes, actually went to Space Camp), and that desire for exploration hasn't ever gone away.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Reading really, really fast. Listening. Solving puzzles, speaking in a pretty passable French accent, speaking in a terrible British accent, eating the icing last, pondering pondering. Grammar.

Alternating between dry wit and nonsensical goofiness.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have giant blue eyes. My previous incarnation was apparently an anime character. What else...I have a very distinctive walk, a strut I suppose, like I'm always wearing heels.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
(a) Way too many to list here. Here are a few: Neil Gaiman, e.e. cummings and Tennyson, House of Leaves, The Chess Garden, Drood (amazing fictional history/horror novel about Charles Dickens), Middlesex, graphic novels like Sin City and Sandman, Italo Calvino. When traveling, I like to indulge in Stephen King or Peter Straub.

(b) The Usual Suspects, The Princess Bride, American Beauty, Magnolia, Jet Li's Hero, Nine Queens, Clue (best ensemble comedy ever...Madeline Kahn, Christopher Lloyd and Tim Curry! Aah!).

(c) Doctor Who, Sherlock (BBC version), Hannibal, any program about physics (bonus for quantum) or tricks of human nature, really bad reality programming

(d) Opera (faves are Lucia di Lammermoor and Rigoletto), Iron and Wine, Sia, Jeff Buckley, Massive Attack, Jay-Z, Florence and the Machine, Sneaker Pimps, Smashing Pumpkins, Radiohead, Vivaldi, David Bowie, The Postal Service, Metric, Dntel, Death Cab for Cutie

(e) White-flesh peaches, salmon sashimi, udon noodles, steak (medium-rare please!)
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Introspection
2. Moments of pure fucking goofiness
3. Friends and fam--trite but true
4. The "aha!" moment
5. iPad while traveling: SO MANY BOOKS IN SO LITTLE SPACE (seven-year-old me would be so jealous)
6. [space reserved]
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Puzzles. Games, mysteries, cryptography, intrigue, etc. I want to hear the music of the spheres. I'm hopeless.

The approximately seventy kabillion things I'm excited to try out upon my return to urbanity.

The weird mishmash of wonderful and horrible that is our world.

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Probably enjoying a low-key evening with a couple of friends, taking an occasional night to myself, or sipping a glass of wine downtown. I tend to take board games and conversation over bar-hopping, though I have been known to Get Down, etc, upon occasion.

Actually, now that I'm moving back to the city, who knows? Bring on the adventures!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I once danced on a bar in Lima, Peru, stone-cold sober.
I make jokes about quarks.
I tend to be a bit messy, though am trying to get better. I attribute this to my left-handedness.

I love antiques, anything with a sense of time and history. I recently bought a 1930's carriage clock, and am busying myself imagining its travels.

I aim to be skeptical, not cynical.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You maintain a sense of wonder in the face of everything that this crazy world brings. You know yourself, and are confident with the place you're progressing towards--or, at least, you're passionate to find out where that might be. Alternatively (or additionally), you want to learn about cryptography. Ah, the Vigenère cipher!
