Today is not that day.
They say "There are two mantras in life: 'Yuck' and 'Yum'." I try hard to be about the latter.
I tend to gravitate toward people who are smart, playful, and kind. I love interacting with people who are paying attention to the world and are excited to share their opinion on it. I like people aren't afraid to be sincere and know themselves well and especially like themselves - someone who has gone through enough to know the value of a good attitude on purpose. And I like people with their fair share of contradictions.
But nobody's perfect; depending on the day I'd be happy with someone who can make me laugh and wants to catch a movie.
Books: I recently discovered Overdrive and it is amazing. Classically I love SciFi and epic fantasy like A Song of Ice and Fire and Harry Potter. I'm always down for some pop sci and human origins stuff and some graphic novels like Maus and Fun Home and The Sandman.
Movies: This should be a whole discussion but let's say my top 3 are Amelie, Drive, and In Bruges. Calvary and Kings of Summer get honorable mentions.
TV Shows: Game of Thrones, Mad Men, Community, Rick and Morty. Lately: Catastrophe, Broadchurch, Broad City
Music: I find Rufus Wainwright's version of "Hallelujah" to be the superior version and when I hear "bum bum bum ba da da bum" I get excited for "Under Pressure" not "Ice Ice Baby". Like with people my musical taste is hard to explain but it's fairly specific and I know it when I see it.
Sometimes when I'm browsing OkCupid profiles I'll think "Cheer up, dummies! This is supposed to be fun."
