In summary, I'm decently handsome and intelligent by most available measures. I'm kind but not in a sycophantic nice guy sort of way. I try to find humor in everything. I eat the sandwiches that I want to eat and I sing the songs I want to sing. I like going to places and eating/drinking lots of stuff. I am an enthusiastic and critical observer and digester of art and media and cat videos.
People seem to like posting their MBTI type on here, so I'm INTP. This is rare which means it's good.
I am calm, collected, and probably insane.
OKCupid doesn't require you to have that little 3 trait summary anymore but I like that sentence.
When I'm not doing that....I do other things. I enjoy eating and drinking excessively. I watch and/or do things that entertain me. I might play golf or mess with my cat or get a sudden urge to fix stuff. I write vague statements about myself on the internet so that I can be evaluated by strangers. Stuff like that.
I'm good at....going to restaurants and ordering too many indulgent things. Is that a skill? I'm also good at golf. I have also recently attempted to learn French but that didn't go very far.
I excel at allocating space efficiently on public transit. This is part of a larger skillset I think of as being a considerate and reliable human. I'm pretty good at whipping up a cocktail as well (or, just pouring whiskey in a glass) but nowhere compared to people who actually get paid to do this. I am probably pretty good at making you laugh. I like to think I'm good in the kitchen, but really I've just eaten enough delicious food at various restaurants to do an impression of someone with actual skills. I have a keen eye for...stuff. I'd be a good detective.
OK I made all those up to illustrate a point: a giant list of things is tedious and is not a good reason to want to know someone.
Media - yes. It is good. I like Breaking Bad and the Wire and blah de blah and probably anything with Liam Neeson and I get most of my news from Daily Show and Colbert. Games? Yes, also games. All manner of games - board games, videogames, sure. Music is also good. If you want to get specific in these areas we can save that for the part where we are actually talking about things.
Food? Yes, also good. Raw seafood or places with ampersands in the name or tacos or whatever. I will judge you hard if you think Michelin stars have something to do with tires.
Books...maybe? The internet has sort of ruined reading for me. When I do read something, I usually pick up some old 'classic' that I've heard referenced many times over but have never read. I have cultural catching-up to do here.
The Onion is basically my inner monologue, on a particularly good day.
Other humans I can stand
Fancy phone...although it's not so much the phone as it is the access to information.
Why so many girls on here have usernames ending with '_taco'....seriously, what is that. That's like if I made my name "somedude_sausage".
UPDATE: Someone explained this to me in a message....I am very disappointed in you ladies.
Why preferences in food are important enough to me that I judge someone when they neglect to fill out the 'diet' part of their profile. How can you NOT have an opinion?! At least put 'Anything'. I hate you.
I peoplewatch a lot...people are constantly doing stuff that is funny and/or hard to explain. Example: About half the people I see wearing a nice dressy style winter coat never bothered to undo that little piece of stitching that holds the tails of the coat together at the bottom. I bet their pockets are still sewn shut too. They probably just think this is how it is when you buy nice clothing. Pockets are for people with no class. I haven't come up with a good way to do anything about this...approaching people on the train with a smile and a tiny pair of scissors has not yielded desirable results.
