My self-summary
According to the personality assessment I completed for work, people like me "value intelligence, knowledge, and competence, and typically have high standards in those regards, which they continuously strive to fulfill. To a somewhat lesser extent, they have similar expectations of others."

I’d say that’s about right. As for my chances of fulfilling those expectations on an online dating site, I’m not too sure. Alas, here I am!

In general, I’m drawn to people who are authentic, inquisitive, and comfortable with their own peculiarities.

Right, so more about me: My “plan” for after college was to read periodicals all day long and somehow find a way to get paid for it. Inexplicably, that didn’t end up happening. I now work in data processing.

I still read, though.

Footnote: the username – not deliberate. I was just mashing 1s and 0s. I now realize that there's another 1010110010 on Slashdot. This 1010110010 isn't me, surely I'm far more interesting. I also realize now that I missed a grand opportunity to actually spell out a secret message in binary. Damn.
What I’m doing with my life
I spend a lot of time meeting the incessant demands of my cat, Emily. She always wants to play. When she allows me to leave my apartment, I also enjoy hiking. Also, music and film and those sorts of things that everyone likes (but even more so, and better!).
I’m really good at
Making obscure Aki Kaurismaki film references, and generally not fumbling in the process. Planning. Troubleshooting, in a very general sense. Entertaining my cat.
The first things people usually notice about me
People tend to think I look Irish, which I am partly, so there you have it.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food







I've been on an Ingmar Bergman kick for the past few months. UPDATE: I've moved on to Pedro Almodovar. UPDATE II: I'm on Roy Andersson now.

Books: The Great Gatsby -- just kidding. Generally non-fiction, and even better if it's literary non-fiction. Recent reads -- David Graeber, Jon Ronson.
The six things I could never do without
Seems like a lot of people list coffee, which I also like, I guess, and then another five things.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The common things we do today that might alarm future generations.
On a typical Friday night I am
The possibilities are limitless. Not really, truthfully. Generally I can be found somewhere between downtown, where I work, and uptown, where I live. Likely ingesting music/ film with a glass of cabernet in hand.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'd rather take the real-world route. I hope I have inserted some good keywords, although I imagine there is more to a man than the text he types. All right, because you are so inquisitive: I have a several large port-wine birthmarks on the back of my left leg; I imagine they look like a series of continents.
You should message me if
