My self-summary
Hi! So, do I wear glasses? Check. Can stand to lose (quite) a few pounds? Check. (Working on it! Just joined Planet Fitness!) Love reading? I have a 2nd bedroom I use as a library, lots of books and comics. Been married? Not yet, have come close though! Never a problem of meeting women, just not the Right One (yet). Fan of Dr. Who, Neil Gaiman, Kaiju, etc. I love all kinds of music, all types of films (from Hollywood to Bollywood), travel, DANCING! Penn State English Lit. Graduate. If you know Myers-Briggs, I'm an INFP. If you want know more, write me!

I think I should add this - - - I do want kids, but not necessarily biologically mine. I'd be happy as a stepdad, very supportive of adoption!

- Communication is the tool, but what we all really want is understanding and acceptance.

- If we had the chance to know all the people we THINK we want to meet, we'd be horribly disappointed! So never feel too bad when someone doesn't reply to you.

- Uncompromising ideals are good only up to a point, and ultimately they limit you in shrinking boxes, i.e., the U.S. Congress.

-Take Chances!! Talk with people you didn't think you'd want to talk to. Let yourself be open to surprises!! Give people chances to surprise you!

- The 1980's was the best decade for music EVER!!
What I’m doing with my life
Working for a math society with an English Lit. degree, writing stories in my head, working on improving my life but not being a zealot about it.
I’m really good at
- I like making lists! Lists are fun! Lists are good!!

- I like to think I have talent writing. I have the deepest love for all types of stories, from real life, from everyone's imagination, from what pops up in my head.

- I can be very empathetic. I feel your pain! - - -but I'm not into that, no judgment if you are!

- I enjoy listening to people, and somehow all the drunks and crazy people seem to know it too when they sit next to me on the bus.

- I know lots of stuff.
The first things people usually notice about me
Could it be my 'joi de vivre,' or my insuscient 'je m'en fous' ("OOOOHHHH!!!"), or my bubbly creme brulee?

Maybe it's my XXXL size (if you want to get me a shirt), my glasses, and my 'come hither' stare.

Some people never notice my sarcasm, which is hysterical in its own way.

Six things I could never do without
1. Podcasts that help my workday flow by.
2. My laptop!! I want to hold it and pet it and hug it and . . .
3. Bollywood videos on Sundays!
4. My Glasses!
5. The BEST chicken falafel sandwiches in the WORLD, from that Greek street vendor in Center City.
6. Something to read!!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
MORE LISTS!!! Like, THE TOP SEVEN THINGS I'D LIKE TO DO ON A DATE. (* will indicate a joke, meaning please do not take this seriously, I am not a deviant; ** means sort of a joke, containing some truth but not to be taken literally.)

7.** Sit across from you, swooning in the glory of your beauty!!
6. Bowling.
5. Going to the movies.
4.* Making a 'movie', if you know what I mean!! Ahhhs Yeah!!
3.** Going to see some earnest, indie, folky singer-songwriter-
- - Wait, that would ANNOY me on a date, sorry!!
2. Recreating the spaghetti eating scene from 'Lady
and the Tramp'.
1.* Just being someplace quiet, talking, getting to know
someone - - - HAhahahaha!!! No, GETTIN' IT ON!!!! Yeah baby!!!

Slightly more seriously, I think a LOT about story ideas, is science leading us closer to, not away from, God, and what would an album of a soul/gospel choir singing rock songs sound like? (The answer? AWESOME!!!!)
On a typical Friday night I am
Working, listening to Nerdist podcasts, Doctor Who podcasts, and commenting on podcasts.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I think women who let their hair go gray but still keep it long and stylish (i.e., Emmylou Harris) are HOT! (I'm serious!) Actually, this goes for any women who are secure enough to have any kind of color for their hair, from cotton candy pink to deep purple!
You should message me if
You are looking for friends and think I would qualify. Not just to write, but interact with in real life! If you are female, open-minded, love to dance, laugh at me and/or yourself, and are not allergic to cat fur, definitely! If you are all the above, wear glasses, and have some type of accent (domestic or imported), and have an Amy Sedaris kind of cool, what's taking you so long!??!
The two of us
