My self-summary
***UPDATE: I got a job as a postdoc at Princeton, so I currently live in New Jersey. I ended up making a new profile because I figured I should answer the questions fresh. I haven't disable this account yet for various reasons, so I figured I should post this disclaimer for folks who would have messaged me (much appreciated all the same). If you happen to have a really cool friend in NJ, the new profile is: onwardcomrade***

Big goal in life is to be a scientist who writes satire and dances a lot. I'm going to invent a chemical that forces people to choreographed-dance. You throw it down like a smoke grenade, and suddenly! Halloween turns into Thriller.

In general, I like folks that: like to banter, like to explore, have a passion, and seek to respect and be respected.
What I’m doing with my life
Preparing to storm the world of academia with my potent sciences. It's a rich brew, not unlike a witch's, but with more love and less blood.

I am currently getting my PhD. I'll be a research psychologist at work and a cognitive neuroscientist at parties.

In general, I research the relationship between emotions, cognition, and power/leadership.

I didn't tag that last one because I probably don't want to meet the kind of person who'd search OkCupid for "power."
I’m really good at
Sorcery. I got my Bachelors from the American Institute of Higher Mystical Studies. Not too strong on the liberal arts education, but at least I can fly.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm laughing at their jokes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books/Movies: Satire. Non-fiction. The fantastic. Nothing gives me more joy than taking something serious and grossly exaggerating it until it's a strawman.

Music: Uptempo, non-repetitive, danceable. Funk nights at bars.

Food: Ok, fine, I give in, here's a list: Cilantro, onion, garlic, lime. Curry, butter, bread. Rosemary, thyme, basil, paprika, pepper. Spicy peppers of all varieties. Cinnamon, sugar, honey, nuts, fruits. Not all together, of course, eventually all of them in my belly. My favorite is Indian.

So let's take all that a make a 'fusion' meal: garlic naan basted with a cilantro-lime marinade, an arugula salad with bell peppers, basil, onion and a vinagrette. A vegetarian curry with long-grain brown rice. Some cinnamon baklava, served with honey-drenched fruit.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why that jerk just cut me off. Does he think he's so special? Well, alright, I'll just speed up like this and swerve around this car here and maybe avoid that truck coming up on my righ-- hey! Damn it, I got boxed in. Don't these people know my sense of self-value is at stake?
You should message me if
Do you know good bands that are either uptempo and danceable, or who can paint a mental picture?

Do you know of any good and inexpensive Indian food restaurants around Riverside?

Do you like to go dancing?

Do you know any good books that will either make me laugh or teach me something awesome?

Any of those are good reasons to message me. I'm sure there are others, too.
The two of us
