My self-summary
Friendly, homoflexible-ish...
What I’m doing with my life
I'm helping the rich get richer by working in financial journalism, but that pays for my habits. I like to travel, read, dine out. I'm not a party animal, but I can dance till dawn when the need arises.
I’m really good at
editing, scrabble, arguing (not bickering), other things (but I'd have to show you :D)
The first things people usually notice about me
Glasses, hair, that I'm slightly quieter than normal.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Music: Peter Gabriel/Genesis, David Bowie, Patrick Wolf, David Byrne/Talking Heads, MGMT, LCD Soundsystem, Radiohead, Janelle Monae, the normal danceclub fodder

Books: William Faulkner (of course), Gore Vidal, HL Mencken, FA Hayek, Joseph Schumpeter (I was an econ major), the Amises (Kingsley and Martin), Christopher Hitchens, Bertrand Russell, Richard Dawkins... I like to be challenged and/or amused when I'm reading.

Movies: I am into smart comedies and can watch most anything else except scary movies (unless you insist).

TV: Family Guy, The Office, Golden Girls, King of the Hill, Simpsons, Seinfeld, Dallas, documentaries

Food: I'm open to most cuisines, from sushi to tapas to Memphis barbecue.
The six things I could never do without
In no particular order:
1. Music
2. TV
3. iPhone (OK, I gave up and bought one)
4. Computer
5. Good food (not snobbish about it; it can be fast, too)
6. Books
I spend a lot of time thinking about
philosophy, economics, where Lady Gaga goes from here.
On a typical Friday night I am
either at home or out with a few friends dancing or playing pool.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm a procrastinator.
I do pushups like a woman. (It's a start.)
I have both ironic and non-ironic appreciations of Phil Collins. (I can't help it if he's a spectacular drummer.)
I have a near-perfect track record of taking terrible profile pics.
You should message me if
You're still interested.
