My self-summary
Reaching out for new teachers in romance!
What I’m doing with my life
Sitting at my laptop, figuring out my OKCupid profile editing.
I’m really good at
Reading and "studying" random subjects of interest. Picking up foreign words. Relating to others ( I try, anyway). Looking at issues from different perspectives. Improvising conversational topics. Being unsatisfactorily vague in this section.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm either inexplicably smiling wide, moving in strange ways or I'm not.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Favorite authors: Tom Robbins, James A. Michener, Edward Abbey, Philip K. Dick, Desmond Morris.
Favorite food styles: Pho, Italian, Mexican, Russian.
Favorite games; Monopoly, poker, scrabble, settlers of catan, durok (a russian card game)
Six things I could never do without
The literal side of me instinctively says: sleep, food, water, air, warmth, language.

Aside from these of, my essentials would be:
My desire to learn
Black iced tea
A Notebook
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Dreams. Why animals act the way they do. Especially humans.
Maps, mental and otherwise. What I want to get done today. Barbecue.
History. How words and dance-styles evolve. Random stuff.
On a typical Friday night I am
A total homebody. If left to my own devices I'll be spending time resting, exercising, meditating, reading, listening to podcasts and doing housework. I have highly social worklife so alone time is really important for sanity. But I crave some connection which is not so superficial. Maybe I need you to break me out of my routines.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I know that there must be an FBI file on me somewhere (everyone has one, right?) and I'm a little scared to even try to check it out. I wouldn't be surprised to find a photo of myself at the back of a May Day parade in Siberia with all the black and red flag waving anarchists - a story I can tell you sometime. Also, my father and I both have identical moles on our backs in the same spot. Oh, yeah, and I have a mutant toe.
You should message me if
You have a good track record of eliciting laughter. You've got some obsession you like to geek out over. You get caught down black holes in the internet full of trivia-gravity. You are comfortable with making up words like I just did. You can tend to be a little possessive, a little craziness is necessary.

You like to eat Pho like you are conducting a slow, strategic war. There is a spot near my place that I go to at least once a week. Perfect mediative and conversational slow meals are where it's at. Especially the homemade kind.

You like feeding fries to the flying seagulls by Ivars on the pier.
You want to go on walks through the city and stop for peoplewatching. You can hold your own at bar trivia.
The two of us
