My self-summary
**Recently reactivated account but on here sporadically, so may or may not update profile this week/soon.**

[Old profile was so lengthy that even I got bored skimming through it, so trying out a more streamlined, laconic (for me) approach now.]
About me, I'm a curious, night-owl type with wide-ranging and sometimes deep interests. If you have a passion for something, chances are I might like to talk about it with you.
What I’m doing with my life
Physics graduate student, so my official time is split between research & teaching. Leisure time is split between activities such as karaoke, board games, pub trivia, leisure reading, cycling (mostly just for transit to and fro but occasionally for being outside and enjoying/exercising), etc.
I’m really good at
If I tell you, then how will I keep my adversaries on their toes, hmm?
The first things people usually notice about me
Beard, that gets the most attention. Followed sometimes by hair, how many pens I have on my person, etc.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I had lists that claimed they wouldn't be long here and then grew to be long over time, so this time I'll legit be brief.
• Books: Both fiction and non-fiction, anything well-written that is informative, engaging or makes one think, e.g., Vonnegut. Currently reading "Dragons of Eden" by Sagan and probably gonna start Miller's The Dark Knight Returns soon.
• Movies: Similar to books, a healthy mix of documentaries and "cinema". I enjoy both equally and enjoy dissecting and discussing both as well.
• Shows: Not too big into cliché sitcoms (exceptions made for Arrested Development and ones of that ilk), but I like a clever shows, from Archer & Bob's Burgers all the way to serious stuff like Orange is the New Black, Breaking Bad, Mad Men, House of Cards, etc. Have recently come to love BoJack Horseman.
• Music: Predominantly, I like "the rock music", as the kids are calling it nowadays, from old stuff (Beatles, Stones, Bowie) up through current stuff (Radiohead, Queens of the Stone Age, Jack White's various bands). I like to sing many of these songs in public in the form of karaoke, as mentioned above. I also like live music from time to time and have been going to more concerts in recent years, hooray. Most recent concert -- Eagles of Death Metal, St. Andrew's in Detroit, Sept. 2015 & Of Montreal, Thalia Hall, Chicago, Apt. 2017.
• Food: So long as it's not trash -- an interesting debate in and of itself, what is and isn't "trash" -- I like all kinds of food. Veggies, cheese, meat, bread. It's all yummy. Haven't found any cuisine I dislike either to speak of. If it's well prepared, I'm not picky. Avocados are mega-delicious, and are part of my ideal breakfast (hard-boiled eggs w/hot sauce like Frank's, some cherry tomatoes and avocados).
Six things I could never do without
I don't like making exclusive lists. I'd cope one way or another without item A or item B. Creature comforts are nice but not mandatory, in other words.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
A little bit of everything, perhaps literally. It's busy/chaotic in here! :P
On a typical Friday night I am
Doing pub trivia, singing karaoke, dancing, recuperating at home, driving somewhere for a weekend trip, etc. Could be any number of things.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I can't think of anything scandalous at the moment. I'm simultaneously private and open, so talking with me might be the best way to pry something intriguing from me.
I will say, though, GGG is the way to be!
You should message me if
...if you have a pressing concern/query/comment/etc.
The two of us
