My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
We're actually a married couple, 28 and 37.

One or more of us likes: travel, languages, citrus fruits, mosaics, multimedia novels, Dumas, flying, everything Italian, and large numbers. We have a private library that always amazes first-time visitors for its breadth, depth, and general randomness. Someday, we will get around to cataloging it. Really. We like to visit the local wineries, read the Economist, make coffee, and try new things. We're planning to go out to the sand dunes and chase each other with Super Soakers, because that's just the sort of people we are.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
One of us plans to apply for grad school in comparative literature very soon. Or abandon everything and move to Europe. Either way.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
learning languages, taking naps, fantasizing, acting out said fantasies, reading long novels in short amounts of time, poking spiteful fun at co-workers who print out all of their emails, writing travelogues, using small numbers of frequent flier miles to go to cool and distant places
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
What a good couple we are. Then they fail to notice us at all, because we've snuck off somewhere to make out and/or shock the bourgeoisie.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
We both love The Secret History (the one by Donna Tartt, not Procopius) beyond all reason.

One of us loves the essays in "Lyrical and Critical Essays" (Camus), especially "Nuptials".

The other likes Russian writers, especially Nabokov and Bulgakov. She loves Dante, Jane Austen, thinking about the ways technology will transform literature, anthropological analysis as a means of self and cultural alienation/reflection, and learning new words. And while some people like to pair wines and food, she is better at pairing books and wine. Anything by Dumas, for instance, calls for a rich and sweet cabernet.

We both like history, dividing our resources between England, Italy and antiquity.

It is impossible to list our favorite movies, so here is a random sampling:

American Beauty, The Usual Suspects, The Illusionist, Casablanca, Memento, Insomnia, Rules of the Game, Vertigo.

Television: Buffy, Veronica Mars, Twin Peaks, Wild Palms, Lost, South Park, The Office (British and American), BBC documentaries on the Tudors.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Books, espresso, sunlight, passport, fresh fruit, wit
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
seismology, whether photos in black and white just look better or are merely a reflection of our poor photography skills, whether it wouldn't be more fun to have eyes on the sides of one's head instead of towards the front, whether this skirt is too short, how to acquire more Italian decorative objects, when we should take our next vacation, and where to find live jazz performance to accompany dinner
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You read your weight in books each year, have a favorite winery, know how to fly a plane, have more books than you have bookshelves, hate conventional sexual mores, hate conventions in general, like long conversations on arcane topics, or would have, in centuries past, been described as a "philologist."
