My self-summary
Example weekend day (spring-summer-fall): spent the morning reading and painting in Brooklyn Bridge park, then hopped the ferry to Governor's Island with my bike and a friend or two. In the evening: sitting on my "living room" rug, drinking wine from the bottle, listening to bluegrass, petting my 3.7-legged cat, probably working on an art project. If this sounds like a great day to you, we might get along.

I was made for the summer. It's not a good weekend unless I get sunburned (which thankfully doesn't take much). By day I'm a computer nerd, and that's swell. By night I'm asleep, and that's okay too.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a software engineer at a wonderful company; I volunteer teaching programming to high schoolers; I study stuff for fun (currently Statistics); I bike, run, dance, hang with pals, read, tend many plants, and craft.
I’m really good at
Making folks feel good. Talking to strangers. Laughing to myself. Laughing at myself. Starting (not finishing) various projects. Being a perfectionist AND a procrastinator (tricky!). Listening to others and chewing with my mouth closed.

Am not good at: brevity, napkins.
The first things people usually notice about me
Giant, warm, silly smile. I'm not tall.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'll tell you what's NOT my favorite: this section! Don't read it. I prob'ly didn't.

A few beloved BOOKS:
• Anna Karenina
• Euclid's Elements
• Harold and the Purple Crayon
• A Confederacy of Dunces
• The Prophet

MOVIES: Princess Bride, Independence Day

TV: not my thing, but I loved The Office and Parks & Rec.

(Most things folks play me and any folksy bluegrass, but some all-time faves include:)
Paul Simon, Tom Petty, Van Morrison, Dispatch, Mumford & Sons, Johnny Flynn, Nina Simone.

As for FOOD, honey badger doesn't give a shit: I will eat whatever is free-est and easiest, preferably not spoil't (except raw onions -- foul!). I eat fish and vegetables, and I won't judge you about what you eat.
Six things I could never do without
folks I love
heater (I am incapable of generating enough body heat. Perhaps am cold-blooded?)
bicycle (mine is temporarily stuck't to my building -- "call the locksmith!" Really though, my lock broke shut, and I haven't dealt with the sitch just yet.) UPDATE: solved -- I bought a new bike. Heh.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Other people. I like them.

How to live better / more thoughtfully.

Should I adopt a dog yet?
On a typical Friday night I am
On the roof.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I fucking hate paper napkins and tissues. They're the sickest thing in the world to me. I'm not exaggerating or lying.
You should message me if
You'd like to meet for an adventure (or a coffee or a beer or go dancing or any in-person date -- no romantic emphasis on that word). I'm here as a supplement to meeting real people in the tactile, non-Internet world. I'd prefer to message just enough to meet up somewhere soon. Let's pretend we just sat down on an airplane together and are having a chat (not really, but a great outcome would be becoming friends: if something more develops, that's awesome, but I'm not a big believer in love at first sight).

Also, just do it. A simple message noting a common interest is plenty. I message folks without hesitation (unless I'm tired: sorry).

Regardless, if you've made it this far through my profile, I'm impressed. Great job! Thanks for the effort. Double points! Cheers.
The two of us
