My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
“Right this way, sir.”
“If I could write that way, I'd be lunching at the Algonquin.”

Very simple man, with big warm fuzzy secret heart.

I am a senior software-development engineer at the University of Chicago, having long since retired from the law. I'm an INTP.

I can remake myself (for myself): I’ve lost a hundred pounds from my peak, eaten more vegetables, taken up bicycling to work. I am honest and self-aware. My friends say I make amends for my mistakes and correct them immediately.

They say I’m sweet.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am a geek. I write (I am working 60 hour weeks combined on my fifth book and my day job). I mentor. I try to make human interfaces that don’t make people feel dumb. I see them all as ways to minister to the lost.

And that makes me a success. The work I do satisfies my sense of mission. I am beloved of my daughters. There is little else ambition can earn me. I make a plenty good salary, but if you are looking for a “successful gentleman,” this is probably not what you mean.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Helping people understand is my work, and incidentally my job.

I've done improv; I made it through two years of the Second City conservatory. I was about 70th percentile (if you're below 95th, don't charge money), and my directors thought I was worth the effort.

I was a middling pilot. I stopped: "Middling" is not what you want to be.

I can roll my tongue.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
The complete absence of fashion sense.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
(A) Favorite Authors: Terry Pratchett. Alton Brown. Dorothy L. Sayers (both Lord Peter and the apologetics). Laurie R. King. Mark Twain (I have a collection of firsts). Richard Mitchell (the late Underground Grammarian).

(B) Manos: The Hands of Fate (MST3K and now Rifftrax — the Brains knew me by name and comforted my daughter when her mother died). Twentieth Century; 12 Monkeys; Magnolia; Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. In the running: The Marx Brothers, The Thin Man series. Most Bogart. Virtually all of Kate Hepburn.

(C) Community. The Americans, The Blacklist, Fringe, Person of Interest. (In other words, dark and confusing. I actually tolerated Lost, because I was in it for the atmosphere.)

(D) My iPod has a lot of Barenaked Ladies, They Might be Giants, and Gilbert & Sullivan. Weird Al Yankovic. Cheryl Wheeler. More and more Sarah Bareilles and Mary Chapin Carpenter. Folk Too much bubblegum 1953-1980. Jonathan Coulton's "Code Monkey" has become my anthem.

I really enjoyed Bongwater (but see Drugs: Never) and Garfunkel + Oates. If your sense of humor requires decorum, you should not look them up.

(E) I like homey things, plus most Chinese. (American Chinese. “Delicacy” is a codeword for “nameless horror.”) I know what mirepoix is. I have trouble with anything that's lived in water, but when I prepared for my visit to my daughter in Japan, I practiced on sushi. Not bad, but I don't seek it out.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My daughters.
My many computing devices.
Email.
Corrective lenses.
A place where my work is my play.
Caffeine.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
My daughters. My friends. Radio (WT9T that's right, ladies!!!). How things work.

The fact that most OKCupid profiles that surely must be satirical, aren't. That the writers of questions are obsessed with evolution, a subject that never comes up in business, socially, or even in intimacy.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Reading. Corresponding. Writing, when, as now, I have a gig. Okay, yes, watching some tube.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have trouble reading people. My friends sometimes have to nudge me when I seem to be slow on the uptake.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are generous, and true, and also fierce. Geeks much preferred.
