My self-summary
I'm not 6' 2". I'm not Italian. I'm not athletic. For anybody who remains after this series of damning admissions, I am smart (I know not only when to capitalize the first person singular subjective, I know what that actually means), personable (I'm just kind of nice to be around), attractive (for a short, fuzzy, non-Mediterranean, know-it-all, round, left-handed [!] troll) person with gobs of interests - from news (I have some interesting opinions) to dancing (partnership) to languages (I speak German) to lots of good stuff (etc.). In short: I'm not that bad, even for a left-handed, short. . .

Update: I've been given to understand that women like bad boys and rebels.* If you are one of those lasses, then be aware, I don't use the twist-tie that comes with bread-products; I just recycle it. I also do long division with a pen and paper, crosswords in pen and my own taxes. What's the smily for a smile with a raised eyebrow?

Update: Once upon a time, tea was considered a dangerous drink, revolutionary and habit-forming. Guess what. I drink. . . tea. :D

What I’m doing with my life
I have a business that I'm working on, I'm a temp, I have an app that's in near-continuous development, I'm obsessed with current events I putter, I look for love.

[Here's the app, you know, if you're, like, interested or whatever:]
I’m really good at
Computer programs, specifically, Excel, Word and Ventura. I know a lot about linguistics and a number of languages, I can read Russian and Serbo-Croation cyrillic (but not the languages) and I know Hungarian, Finnish, Polish and Czech orthography and vexillology. Being calm in a crisis.

I also know a lot of really odd little things.
The first things people usually notice about me
I don't know. Eyes, maybe? Accent (generic Yankee)? My troglodytic propensities, perhaps?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
The Hobbit
The Lord of the Rings
The Number of the Beast
The Prince
The Discourses
Original Manings

Much Ado about Nothing (both, is there a Beatrice out there for me? Anyone? Just raise your hand. Yes, you in the third row. Oh, um, yes, out the door in the back, to your left, down the hall and it'll be the second door on the right. O.K., anyone else???)
The Descendants
The Pirates of Penzance (Woo-hoo!)
Simon Birch
Das Boot
A Little Romance
The Grinch
Sleepless in Seattle
Mama Mia
Blazing Saddles
Young Frankenstein
Royal Tannenbaums
The Life Aquatic
Raiders of the Lost Ark (I don't CARE if Indy's irrelevant to the plot)

Classical/Romantic (Wagner, Vivaldi, Mozart, that crowd)

Not sushi. Nothing with olives or calimari. I don't like soy. Outside of that, I'm pretty flexible.

I don't get out to see many shows. I've seen Spamalot and Camalot and Too Much Tom Lear, but generally, I see things after they become movies. Mame, Meet Me in St. Louis, The Producers, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, Singing in the Rain, were all fun. Mary Poppins and Sound of Music, however, are kind of creepy.

Wait, T.V. shows? Oh. Well, Mike and Molly, Bob's Burgers, Nova, Frontline, The Newshour, Frontline, Masterpiece, The Big Bang Theory (my uncle's an engineer AND a Ph.D., take THAT Wollowitz), Tabletop (calling Dr. Hannah, Dr. Omar Hannah) etc.
Six things I could never do without
The News.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why things work the way they do.
On a typical Friday night I am
I'm home alone. I'd like to change that, if I could.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I can't spell.
You should message me if
In describing who I am looking for I think I'll go along with Sundance. Very simple and easy. Smart, educated, beautiful, attractive, graceful, elegant, generous, sophisticated, talented, accomplished, good and kind. But, I'm willing to be flexible and settle for someone who enjoys "Peanuts" (it come to the same thing). The only thing I will be unreasonable about is a non-smoking person. Of course, any left-handed, German-speaking, red-headed Scottish musicians may expect a marriage proposal by the end of the first date. Everyone else will just have to wait until the second. ;)

Seriously, I'm only looking for an intelligent, pleasant and attractive lady.
The two of us
