My self-summary
I am analytical, introspective, and whimsical

I am a head-in-the-clouds type who spends way too much time contemplating the profound questions of life, and probably not enough time doing practical things. I like ideas and theories, and can excitedly talk about them for probably much longer than most people care to. I have a subtle self-effacing wit, yet still somehow manage to come off as a haughty intellectual. Despite my best intentions, I can make a marvelous fool of myself, but I am able to accept the humor of my own futility. :)

Despite all of the above, I can be a lot of fun to be around and enjoy a good adventure!
What I’m doing with my life
I am still trying to figure out what it all means...perhaps nothing, except what I make of it.
I’m really good at
...deluding myself with meandering thoughts about meaningless things, while drinking a cold pint of porter or a nice hot cup of coffee.
The first things people usually notice about me
My sense of irony.

My odd compulsion to finish other people's sentences with lyrics from 80s songs.

Also, my tendency to answer questions with the phrase "well, that depends".

The fact that I am often blissfully unaware of my surroundings (lost in thought).

I can uninhibitedly converse with total strangers, yet nervously bumble around when talking to an attractive aquaintance.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Music: lots of stuff, from punk to classical to 80s pop...hard to categorize...thinking about it makes me write in incomplete sentences...

Food: Pretty much anything and everything

TV: Big Bang Theory, Arrested Development, True Detective, Star Trek, Game of Thrones
The six things I could never do without
In no particular order: internet, books, music, movies, coffee, conversation
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Various aspects of existential philosophy.

Also, evolution. It's actually really logical, if you care enough to actually learn about it in detail.

Also, how unlikely it is that anything worthy of being called "God" would conform to humankind's narrow views of what he/she/it should be like.

Why people believe in weird things.

What type of telescope I would buy if I lived far enough away from the city lights to actually see any stars.
On a typical Friday night I am
Conversing with friends over a drink or two, reading a book, watching a thought-provoking movie.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I would probably fail the Turing test. :)

I am not as cool, smart, interesting, or unique as I imagine, but then again, probably neither is anyone else.

I own and regularly use a stationary exercise bike, yet never learned how to ride the real thing.
You should message me if
If you enjoy friendly pseudo-intellectual debates that end two hours later in a place very far from where they started.

If any of my interests somehow seem interesting.
