Hi there. I'd try to tell you what kind of person I am but I think that is best left open to your own interpretation.
I love hiking, walking, hugs, tabletop roleplaying games, Go, rainy weather, tiny little used book stores with obscure books crammed into every little corner, Frisbee, nerd humor, people who like to talk, people who like to listen, and small fuzzy animals that cause me to make profoundly unmanly noises. :3
I've recently realized that I am a much happier person without attempting to label my sexual orientation since this allows me to take life as it comes, without any hangups. Unfortunately, OkCupid doesn't have an option for that. -_-
*disclaimer: if you are a student in a class for which I am the teaching assistant, I will not date you. Similarly, if we are dating, you should not take a class for which I am the TA. Why, you ask? Ethics...also because getting fired would suck.
Of course, I also enjoy other authors; I'm a fan of the works of Vernor Vinge, Jim Butcher, (tbc)...
For the mathematically inclined: lately, I have been reading The Seiberg-Witten Equations and Applications to the Topology of Smooth Four-Manifolds, by John Morgan, Monopoles and 3-Manifolds, by Peter Kronheimer and Tomász Mrowka, and Riemannian Holonomy Groups and Calibrated Geometry by Dominic Joyce.
As far as movies are concerned, I'm inclined to say that Death at a Funeral (the British version), Bottle Shock, Star Trek (2009), Gangs of New York, Whiplash, and How to Train Your Dragon are somewhere up near the top of the list though, in truth, that's nowhere near a representative sample.
I don't watch all that much TV anymore.
I can honestly say that I cannot say what my favorite music is; my answer to that question could change on a weekly basis if I tried to answer it.
I play Turkish and Persian folk and classical music as well as some bluegrass and rock.
Food is an entire realm unto itself; I have numerous favorites from many different incomparable types of cuisine.
I tend to prefer Asian foods because they are delicious and I feel healthier after eating them than after consuming most other kinds of foods.
I especially love Japanese, Korean, Indonesian, and Vietnamese food but there will always be a place in my heart for cold Chinese left-overs at 2am.
That is not to say that I don't like anything else; there are few things closer to my culinary heart than homemade pasta, frikadeller (Danish meatballs), or whitefish and bagels with cream cheese.
