Also, I rarely check OKCupid. So half the time when I don't answer messages, it's b/c I haven't logged in in the past 3 months. I just like to get online and look around sometimes. :)
I've been doing taekwondo for a while, over a decade. I tend to only look forward, not back, so all I can see is where I want to be, but in fact I'm pretty good.
My favorite method of transportation is biking around the city (I biked across the country ten years ago, and Boston does indeed win best pothole award.) I am happy to teach you to bike properly in Boston traffic! However, I have no cold tolerance, so I don't bike in winter. I make delicious pancakes, I can get you addicted to kale or parsnips, and I whip up a mean creme brulee. I'm also good at being a sane point of reference if someone is driving you crazy. I love board games, especially geometric ones - I will happily take all comers at Blokus (you'll lose), Ricochet Robot (you might win) and chess (you'll probably beat me.) I'm also mad about Dominion.
I would love to be better at: spinning poi, dancing, especially salsa-dancing (I do have the shoes!), randonneuring, rock-climbing, chopping veggies like a chef, political activism, volunteering in a prison, learning how to beatbox.
People also tell me I project calm.
TV Shows: Star Trek (TNG, DS9); Community; The Mindy Show; Elementary; Grimm; Once Upon a Time (I know, I know); Castle; Endgame; Buffy; Angel; Firefly; Leverage; White Collar; and I need to see more West Wing.
Movies: Up; Wing Chun; Hong Kong kung-fu movies in general; anything with Queen Latifah, Ed Norton, Michelle Yeoh, Jet Li. This category is hard, I'm going to have to come back to it!
Music: Yes. I don't have any patience for genre snobs. I'm not an expert on country or hip-hop, but there is some great stuff out there, so I don't have patience for people bashing genres. I once turned Nine Inch Nails' "Head Like A Hole" into a madrigal.
Food: Yes. I love food! Favorites are sushi and any kind of fish and pretty much most vegetables done right. Tend to favor veggies over meat (I never crave a steak the way some people do) but I am an omnivore. Picky eaters are kind of a turn-off (unless you are picky in a very interesting way. Have I mentioned that in addition to semi-colons I also abuse parentheses?)
Piece of information you can glean from that response: I am VERY literal.
And also, choral repertoire.
