My self-summary
So... I used up all my good material on my match profile. Of course, that very first sentence is a bit of a rule-breaking disaster, but I'll digress and let you decide how brutal the repercussions should be.

Yup, I've met a lot of nice people on match, and even enjoyed some sustained relationships that started there. I've also been on a lot of first dates that I thought could lead to more, but didn't, and met a few girls with whom I decided not to keep hangin out. I read some positive things about okcupid on an unnamed internets location, so I thought I'd at least lay down by the pool and stick my head in the water.

Anyways, I'll at least get some generalities down, then maybe I'll come back and betterize this later (yup, betterize). Intelligence is pretty important to me. I'm not all that smart, but I really appreciate spending time with someone that challenges what meager brains I have handy. I think that skiing and mountain biking are excellent outdoor activities, and that people that aren't at least willing to try them are wasting their lives. In an ideal world, I'd be able to enjoy chairlift rides with someone pretty, either deciding which run to do next, or discussing some recently read, listened to, or imagined idea. Same thing goes for those slow, anaerobically excruciating mountain bike uphills, provided that I'm not completely out-of-breath.

Here's a fun game:

Truth: I'm not native, and hate those bumper stickers.
Lie: I make beautiful music on the guitar.
Truth: I'm an idiotic romantic.
Lie: I'll wait at least 36 hours to get in touch after our first date.
Truth: My shit is more-or-less together
Lie: All of my belongings have a designated space.
Truth: I love starbursts.
Lie: Jon Stewart is funnier than Stephen Colbert.
What I’m doing with my life
-Perpetuation of a loop, including but not limited to sleeping, working, and skiing. Deviations from the loop include hiking, mtn biking, finding good authors, finding delicious brands of bourbon.

This is kind of a tough question to answer without feeling like an utter waste of humanity. I mean, I haven't made it a life goal visit all seven continents, or discover the cure for a disease, or create a new disease... I am a blind tool for neither absolute good nor evil.

In the spring, I usually volunteer with Boulder Country Parks and Open Space (trails and trees need love, too). In the summer and fall I'm too selfish to do so.
I’m really good at
-kissing (who knows, could be true. it's at least not an expressly stated lie).
-skiing bumps.
-sleeping in. sleeping through alarms. dreaming about crazy things.
-wearing jeans and tshirts.
-passionately rooting for sports teams to which I am academically affiliated.
The first things people usually notice about me
Not really sure, but I'll guess that my hair is neither black, brown, or blonde.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
So, I generally read current authors. Classics don't usually float to the top of my stack, but I'm planning on East of Eden next. Authors whom I frequently check on to see when they are publishing new novels: Neal Stephenson and Neal Gaiman. They both have intelligent style and witty humor, and I enjoy their books more each time I read them.

I don't get out and see movies too often. Generally, when I'm back on the East Coast visiting friends/fam, I'll catch one or two, since THERE ARE NO MOUNTAINS THERE. Keeping the profile current test: The last two Bond movies have been fun, and I'll probably see SkyFall.

Music is best discussed on the first date with iphone in hand.
Six things I could never do without
-craft beer
-scientists that make interesting podcasts
-running shoes
-social interaction
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I don't. I analyze, decide, and live with the consequences (haven't died from them yet, anyways).
You should message me if
-Your equally willing to go running or go for a beer on our first date, or
-You noticed the grammatical error in the first sentence before you read the second sentence, or
-Your heart is open (guarded is ok, shut is not), and you are excited by the idea of sharing of yourself and having someone share with you.
The two of us
