My self-summary
I'm my own worst critic and don't much like talking about myself, but... I'm a college-educated, single male in Brooklyn. More? I'm a history buff and fascinated (if not a bit disgusted) with the current political landscape. I am also a huge sports fan (but don't let it get in the way of important things), I enjoy photography and taking long walks (no, really!).

Most importantly... my family and friends mean everything to me!
(PS - I actually don't like being called "Joey", but I allow my nieces and nephew to do it... how could I not? And besides, it was my judgement that, when my nieces were born, every little girl should have an Uncle Joey From Brooklyn.)
What I’m doing with my life
I am trying to get better every day. I am fully employed and consider myself pretty well balanced. Of course, we can all keep learning and growing.
I also find myself losing faith in OKCupid. Care to restore it?
I’m really good at
As I said, I'm my own worst critic, so I'll let you decide. I'm a pretty good conversationalist, though.
The other night after counselling three different people on their jobs, I also found out I give good advice (and have more patience than I thought).
I guess you could say I'm a bit like a dog... I'm fiercely loyal, very attentive, protective of those I care about, and if you show me some love and trust, I'll give it back ten times over.
I have other skills... but I'll wait to share those as I don't want to sound cocky! :)
The first things people usually notice about me
Uhhh... I shave my head and have been told I have nice eyes. Oh, and... I'm short (5'6"). *damnit*
(Also, if you work with me you'll notice I tend to laugh at inappropriate times.)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Good heavens - too much information to include here. I don't discriminate with regard to entertainment. My favorites that I can think of:
Music: Led Zeppelin
Movie: It's a Wonderful Life
TV: Family Ties, Cheers, Family Ties (old); Big Bang Theory, The Blacklist, Grey's Anatomy (current)
Books: No "favorites" - I like historical biographies
Food: Italian (and yes, I know how to cook)
Six things I could never do without
Family and friends are most important to me, but not "things". So (in no particular order)...
Something to write with/on
My Big Puffy Red Chair
My Nook (it's new and makes reading on the subway much easier)
My DSLR camera (affectionately known as "my baby")
I'll think about number six...

(In truth, I grew up with a "packrat" (these days known as "hoarders"), so I have gone the other direction and have very little use for "things".)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I think a lot (I'm a writer at heart and a Virgo, after all), but I can't pinpoint one thing. My mind is always active.
On a typical Friday night I am
Having dinner or drinks with friends or home watching a ball game. (Then I sleep late on Saturday.)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
One of my favorite quotes: "Tell me all your secrets and I'll tell you most of mine." (Brownie points if you tell me where that comes from.)
Ok - I'll share two dirty little secrets - I like watching American Idol and So You Think You Can Dance *shame*
You should message me if
You have something intelligent to say and want to meet someone who happens to be pretty awesome.
The two of us
