Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hello! Not much here (now with slightly more!) at the moment.
Here's a very vague and general overview of myself: I am not a
serious person (this is important). I am very easygoing (and
surprised that it's a single non-hyphenated word). There isn't much
that bothers me and I don't like to complain.
Here are some things I like: Bicycling
(road, not mountain),
(both board and video), bad movies
(good movies too, I suppose). Plus other stuff. Better add
I'm clearly into those (obviously).
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Taking a break from academia. Working and saving up a bit. I'm also
picking up some activities I've been meaning to do for years; long
distance cycling and playing in an ice hockey league are at the top
of that list.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
wondering if I ought to capitalize wondering at the start there
even though I am completing a sentence.
As for a real answer I'd say being personable. People tend to like
me in spite of my better judgement. I blame my winning smile and
bad habit of listening more than I talk due to a deep-seated belief
that others have more interesting things to say than I.
I also love making birthday cards for people and believe that they

I gather that most people think rather highly of my smile. Aside
from that I don't have much feedback.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Authors are easier to list than books, so: Robin Hobb, Brandon
Sanderson, P. G. Wodehouse, Brent Weeks, Joe Abercrombie, and
Douglas Adams. I am ashamed that I misspelled a name in there
Movies: Army of Darkness and The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra. I like
plenty of others, but I cannot emphasize those two enough.
Shows: Doctor Who, Top Gear, Star Trek (take your pick), Archer,
Futurama, and Breaking Bad. Others as well, but an exhaustive list
Music: Man Man and They Might Be Giants. Also Dan Deacon, Joanna
Newsom, Battles, Gustav Holst and lots of other stuff. I think
those yield a reasonable idea of my preferences.
Food: I am distinctly not picky and like most food. I am, however,
quite partial to sushi and Thai.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My bike, a computer, things to read, and three other things. Should
probably get on that one. Oh! I could just make that 4 things to
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What I should/want to do today and how much overlap there will
between the two.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Having just finished a (very) scientific study on this very
question, I can say without any doubt that my post-work Friday
includes (but is not limited to) the following activities: A bike
ride, getting a beer with a friend, constructing dinner, and
watching a movie.
I have finished my study and discovered that the following
activities are also possibilities: Ice skating, looking at stars
(with a telescope!), playing videogames with distant friends over
the interwebs, watching hockey, and reading.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I haven't got a clue what to put here. So I'll use the space to say
that I think my profile should have a changelog, because I fear
that in a few weeks all of my sections are going to be
unintelligible, meandering messes of half thoughts and parenthesis.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You don't mind my horrid abuse, of, those poor commas.
You probably should if you're looking for someone to go on bike
rides with, someone with which to boardgame, or if you just found
something interesting in here.
