I'm a big science fiction and zombie cinema guy.
Cloudy light and rainy days bum me out more than the average person.
I can be a bit of an introvert at times.
I hate being the one to make decisions in a group.
I read a lot. I manage to balance being a scholar and being a goofus in semi-passable ways (I hope anyway)
I would sell my soul to have Anthony Bourdain's job.
I'm a night owl; mornings see me at my crankiest and if there's no coffee forget about it.
My sarcasm is never ending but generally good natured. Generally.
I'm a New York native except that I didn't go to high school here. I'm lucky enough to have had most of my best friends from college move here after I did.
Self description is hard you guys. Feel free to ask after anything I didn't list.
When not doing the above, I'm usually hanging out with friends, playing Settlers of Catan, or out at a bar.
Making monsters out of clay
Speaking moderately coherent Arabic.
Infecting the lexicon of the people around me with my catchphrases.
Making a damn good bean salad
Making lists, usually of things with no practical application or use.
Sleeping on any kind of transportation except planes for some reason.
Movies: Children of Men, Wet Hot American Summer, Pan's Labyrinth, Total Recall, Dawn of the Dead, Tombstone, Mystery Team, The Usual Suspects, Pretty much any zombie movie ever made; they have to be REALLY bad for me to not like them.
Shows: Parks and Recreation, Bored to Death, Battlestar Galactica, Arrested Development, Walking Dead, No Reservations, Bizarre Food, House Hunters International, Game of Thrones. I'm continually embarrassed to admit that I've never seen the Wire or Breaking Bad, even though I've planned on getting into them since forever
Music: Propagandhi, Refused, Johnny Cash, Dinosaur Jr., MF Doom, Fugazi, Pelican, Oingo Boingo, etc.
Food: Pretty much anything; I enjoy finding and trying new things. Having said that, I don't think i could ever eat balut. I hate collard greens.
A backpack of some sort
Hot Showers (I actually have gone without these but I just really like them)
I also have no problem reading or watching a movie or having a couple drinks at home. I don't feel obligated to go out on weekends just because I can.
You're not in a cult or an organ harvester.
You're looking for hand holding kinda relationships. One night stands etc. are cool I guess, but not really what I'm looking for.
