My self-summary
Let's meet up and write poetry over tea. There are many intriguing ideas to unveil and I'd very much like new and intriguing acquaintances to explore such things with. There's something awfully fantastic about being quiet with someone without feeling strange about the silence.

The inability to stargaze in NYC is one of my biggest conflicts about living here.

If you want to know anything about me, just ask. I'd love to answer any questions as long as I can ask a few of my own.
What I’m doing with my life
Fighting Lactose Intolerance. Wondering how difficult my life would have been as a socialist during the McCarthy Era. Loudly singing made up opera to my dog.

Loving archaeology and art history and pursuing international antiquities law.

Refusing to let the way of the world today infringe on my day to day happiness and trying to share that happiness with those around me. For those of you concerned, this too shall pass. All days do.
I’m really good at
Keeping myself from gloating about things I may be good at. I'd prefer to show you what I'm good at than have you take me word for it. Although I must say that I am phenomenally good at brushing my own hair. Legend has it that the power of my hair brushing once stopped the construction of the Fourth Reich.

I've been told that I'm really good at abruptly creating refreshingly serious conversations out of meaningless banter.

I'm told that I'm really good at reading people. It's not a skill that I am especially proud of, nor one that I find especially enjoyable. In the end, I'm just not one you want to try to lie to if you don't want to be caught.

(I was also told by someone I went on an okcupid date that I should tell people I sing and play music upfront instead of hiding it for later. Apparently that's something some people find attractive. This is me taking advice.)
The first things people usually notice about me
Probably my hair and the fact that I'm usually well dressed.
Or maybe it's just that I'm a klutz and can be fairly clumsy.
Sometimes I say really silly nonsensical things and I'm a fan of absurdist humor. Some people find me hilarious, but others just think I'm really corny. I like to think I'm both.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Getting through the fifth Dark Tower novel at the moment, and as a Stephen King fan I'm loving it. I recently worked though a couple of Cormac McCarthy novels. Out of the stuff I've read over the last few months, I think I enjoyed 1Q84 the most. In my opinion, it was pretty brilliant. And of I'd love suggestions to add to my reading list if there's anything you are dying to share!

Horror, science fiction, and British comedic films are oftentimes my favorites.

My musical taste spans from classic rock to the baroque. My listening preference all depends on the day. Recently I've been listening to lot of bluegrass and singing a lot of Fleetwood Mac. When it comes down to it, I'm pretty sure George Harrison is my spirit animal. And on another note, I actually spend a lot of time singing with a guitar or violin.
I can assure you that the way into my heart is through a mix tape.

Foreign foods, especially seafoods, are fantastic. As much as I enjoy red meats on occasion, I find fish both healthier and tastier. (Fun fact: I was once a vegetarian and now love well prepared tofu.)

M.C. Escher and Winslow Homer are easily my favorite artists and they have just about nothing in common.
Six things I could never do without
An affinity for childlike wonder
A sense of self
And people to share them all with
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Rainer Maria Rilke's theories regarding young love.

If the Russians love their children too.

How I can make my momentary insignificance on this earth matter.

How much wood woodchucks chuck when nobody's looking.
On a typical Friday night I am
Saving the world from giant robots. Have you ever seen a gargantuan homicidal robot? No? Yeah, that was all me.
For some reason rogue automatons like Friday nights.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Sometimes I wear glasses.
(Update: I'm near-sighted in one eye and far-sighted in the other. I should wear my glasses more often.)

When I was child, and still a religious Jew, I accidentally had a slice of pepperoni and starting crying, because I thought God was going to smite me as a result. The moral of this story, you ask? Sometimes accidental processed meats happen. One must prepare oneself for when they do.

(To be clear, I'm not going to post private things that actually matter to me.)
You should message me if
You should message me if you want to go get a cup of tea and talk about anything and everything. I'm an open book and completely respectful of the fact that you may not be.

You would enjoy accompanying me to the opera. Or swing dancing. Or a very cool exhibit at a museum. Or on a hike. Or to play checkers in Central Park.

And if you happen to play a classical string instrument, there's a strong chance that I'm already fascinated by you.

Lastly, in case none of the above apply, you should message me if you think we'd get along. I like to think I'm a very open-minded and accepting person.

-If you message me with any variation of "what's up", there's a high chance I won't respond. I also know a poltergeist who's interested in haunting someone with so little to say. I'll point him your way at no monetary expense to you.
The two of us
