My self-summary
Born and brought up by an Indian and a Brit, in a land full of coconut trees and seafood (you'd love me!!!!) Worked as a code-monkey in what can only be described as a human zoo for 1414 days, before heading out to Pittsburgh to live a dream, and did my Masters....and now its been more than 5 years since I came to the Big Apple (and I really love it here!!).
What I’m doing with my life
I work with a small company on Long Island developing software....yes, I'm a code monkey and I love it!!!! :)
I’m really good at
(I'm not good at finishing a sentence that starts like this...I'd probably sound like an egotistical asshole)....(plus I think it would be more fun to find out as you go on what people are really good you'd either be pleasantly surprised or not have bothered at all...ah the rationale of a pessimist!!)
The first things people usually notice about me
its in my profile picture...see if you can spot it!!

also I use too many "..."'s and "!!!" when I type...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Most recent favorite book: What If

I love watching good movies; some of my favorites : The Dark Knight, The Departed, Good Fellas, Casino, Pulp Fiction, The Shawshank Redemption...I love comedies too... A Fish Called Wanda, My Cousin Vinny!!! (P.S..I have an interesting story about The Dark Knight Rises)

Shows I love: Fawlty Towers, Arrested Development, Frasier, Curb Your Enthusiasm ,Flight of the Conchords, Family Guy, The Simpsons, Monty Python, Black Adder, South Park, Its Always Sunny In Philadelphia, Archer, The Office, The Daily Show, The Late Show, Last week Tonight, Full Frontal with Samantha Bee, Breaking Bad, Modern Family, 30 Rock, Dexter, and House of Cards.

I love rock and progressive rock/metal although having been brought up on the Beatles, Joan Baez (boring...zzzzz), Billy Joel, Paul Simon, Queen etc. I pretty much listen to almost anything. My favorite bands are Dream Theater, Animals as Leaders, Liquid Tension Experiment and The Aristocrats; I like Steve Vai, Joe Satriani, Tool, Opeth, Rush, Dave Matthew's Band, Snarky Puppy and Porcupine Tree. Lately though, I've been listening to a lot of classical music (Beethoven, Mozart, Strauss and Bach).

I love cooking and trying all kinds of food. I really put a lot effort into everything I cook. I love experimenting with food, and trying completely new (and sometimes crazy) recipes!!
Six things I could never do without
My Guitar
Good Beer or Red wine
Good Food
My Guitar
I spend a lot of time thinking about
when I'm going to record my first song and what its going to be about...(I've recorded an instrumental, but somehow..that doesn't count ...sigh!)

Different recipes to experiment with!!! (insert devilish emoticon here)

Why I'm in one of the most beautiful cities in the world, and I don't have someone to share and enjoy it with...
On a typical Friday night I am
either out with a couple of friends at a pub, or I'm at a concert/movie or comedy show....

or I'm at home, either watching something on TV/ reading/ playing the guitar, but definitely with good food and alcohol in some form or the other :-),
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Every time I walk past a LEGO store I have to go in and check it out!!

I'd still love watching Tom & Jerry and Bugs Bunny cartoons if they were on!!!

and this happened to me while I was watching the Great Gatsby: (mental note to self: "Don't watch a movie after an extremely heavy lunch")
You should message me if
you've got a good (and I mean GOOD) sense of humor (this is really important)...most of my favorite shows are comedies...if you've already browsed through them (or are just about to) that pretty much describes what I find funny..

you can laugh at yourself (I do that a lot...if you can dish it, you should be able to take it... right?? :) )

you want to have a fun time sharing and exploring things together!!!

You figured out my profile name ..

plus points if you know what Formula 1 is (not essential, since here people equate any form of motor racing to NASCAR (Zzzzzzzz)...which i consider blasphemous)

Note: I love cooking, and I would love to cook for you, so... even more points if you can eat anything! (for vegetarians it'll be slightly tougher but okay...and for vegans...well I'm up for a challenge so BRING IT!!).

Also, messaging/chatting is fine for a little while, but if you don't plan on ever meeting up in person, lets not waste each other's time! (I'm sorry if that sounds a little forward/direct, but (like most of you) I am looking for something real here.)
The two of us
