My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Why should you even bother pay attention to my profile? Well, for starters, I generally smell nice in person (who doesn't like a guy who smells nice?). I'm pretty open and honest about my feelings. I can cook fairly well (and like to cook for other people... hint-hint...). Children and animals tend to like me (I imagine this has something to do with a positive, non-creepy, non-threatening aura I'm kicking off...). I'm a feminist and queer-friendly (in that a large number of my friends are female and/or queer-identified). I love to travel, listen to live music, be outdoors, and generally soak up life...
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm currently a PhD student. I'd also love to try my hand at creating electronic music (need money to buy equipment... And, let's face it, a swift kick in the ass). Really interested in doing more with my time... Suggestions accepted as far the whole "doing more" thing is concerned.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Contradicting myself
Not contradicting myself
Missing obvious clues
Getting people dancing

The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Weight loss (people who haven't seen me in awhile love to point this out, even if it's not true...)

My eyes (they're hazel). Sometimes this leads to inappropriate yet hilarious situations, like when students at the high school you're working at begin referring to you as "Mr. Sexy Eyes"...

The fact that I'm prone to non sequiturs...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I've chopped most of this section down. We can talk for more depth.

Books: Invisible Man, The Tin Drum, Nest, The Wretched of the Earth, War Without Mercy, Souls of Black Folk, National Lampoon's Presents True Facts: The Big Book, short stories by Charles Johnson or D.H Lawrence, The Interpreter of Maladies

Movies: Anything Scorsese, Don't Be a Menace to South Central While Drinking Your Juice in the Hood, James Bond Films (especially the Roger Moore Ones), Fight Club, Clockwork Orange, Network, Alien, Blade Runner, タンポポ, 家族ガーム, The remake of Sabrina (it gets me all misty eyed...), Quick Change

Music: I love music. Chances are we like some of the same stuff. I listen to a lot of electronic music, Hip Hop, Jazz, and some indie stuff.

Food: This really depends on my mood. I'm down to try anything new. Fresher is always better in my opinion. Always on the lookout for new CSA farmbox recipes. :)
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Music
Relationships (of all stripes)
Laughter
Regular visits to the ocean
Around 6 hours of sleep
Lunch (very necessary)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Good times (not the show)...

How I'm going to get that paper published...

Things that taste good...

How to be a better person (seriously)
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Out with friends. Unless I've cooked something. Then I'm in with friends. Unless I'm not. Then I'm somewhere else.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I cried at the end of Howard the Duck (it was 28 years ago and I really don't have any idea why I did now that I think about it...)
