My self-summary
Hi. I live in Chicago and love it; I do a lot of socializing with friends, drinking of lattes, listening to music, going to Steppenwolf, the Lyric, wine bars and Cubs games. But I'm guessing this is about 1% of what this city offers and would love to explore the other 99% - blues, the random poetry slam, and more.

I am warm, funny, and smart
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Music: Favorites are alternative and classical, but I'll listen to almost anything except country. And elevator music. Unless I'm at the dentist and there's laughing gas involved.

Books: I love to read. I'm a big fan of Indian authors (Jumpa Lahiri, Rohinton Mistry, Vikram Seth, Chita Divakaruni). Other long-time favorites are "A Good Scent from a Strange Mountain" by Robert Olen Butler; "The Ginger Tree" by Oswald Wynd; "The Soloist" by Mark Salzman; "Remains of the Day" by Kazuo Ishiguru

Food: All kinds of ethnic foods - sushi, thai, Indian (to go with my books), etc.

Movies: Anything Merchant/Ivory, "Rushmore," "Shawshank Redemption," "Midnight Run"

TV: Lost, The Office, Daily Show, Colbert Report
The six things I could never do without
Family, friends, music/ipod, books, lattes and wine.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Well...I'd like to say I spend a lot of time thinking about Important Issues. But now that the election's over, odds are I'm thinking about the topics listed above :)
On a typical Friday night I am
Definitely depends on how my week (and commutes!) went. I like to catch up with friends over dinner & drinks, or hit the gym and snuggle up to my DVR.
You should message me if
You are smart and interesting. I do have a weakness for tall, intellectual liberals.
