My self-summary
My name is Alex, and I promise I'm way more interesting and possibly more attractive than okcupid knows how to get across.
What I’m doing with my life
Dicking around in culinary school after getting a Berkeley B.A. I'm hoping to have some fun, but will accept "a terrible time where interesting things happened."
I’m really good at
Bringing knives to gunfights, dead languages, cheating at board games, competitive napping, feistiness, and the horizontal polka.
The first things people usually notice about me
I wouldn't know? But "big blue eyes!" is a popular one-comment conversation.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Medieval histories and epics; sad indie movies with sad indie themes; anything from the BBC; folk metal, blues, and britpop; I don't eat, I photosynthesize.

Seriously, though, some favorites.
Books: The Kalevala, Beowulf, Wuthering Heights, the Mabinogion, Morvern Callar, Waiting for Godot, the Exeter Book, all of Shakespeare's histories.
Movies: Harold and Maude, Stranger than Fiction, The Future, Being John Malkovich, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, Napoleon Dynamite, Where the Wild Things Are, What About Bob, Howl's Moving Castle, and anything by Wes Anderson.
Shows: Legends of the Hidden Temple, Game of Thrones, Flight of the Conchords, The Mighty Boosh, Top Gear, QI, The Joy of Painting.
Music: Pulp, Morrisey and The Smiths, Wintersun, Tom Waits, Equilibrium, Ensiferum, Royksopp, the Decemberists, Moonsorrow, David Bowie, the Talking Heads.
Six things I could never do without
A sketchbook, chapstick, flask full o' whiskey, Shakespeare paperback, deli meats, and a pocketful of dreams? FuckifIknow.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Etymology, typography, philology, phrenology, paleobotany, herpetology, derpetology.
On a typical Friday night I am
Baking things I have no intention of eating, drinking until everything agrees to be my friend, making flashcards, watching shows about cartoon robots in my underwear.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am a huge mistake.
You should message me if
You know what's what.

You can do it with correct grammar.

You want to send me a 1,000 word message about how we were arch enemies in a past life.

You're the same kind of bad as me.
The two of us
