My self-summary
Here's a little about myself. Just a paragraph will do.

I have satisfied OKCupid's request.
What I’m doing with my life
Moved to Boston from Buffalo to start a PhD program in biology! New to the city, so looking for people to show me the good places to eat, drink, and people watch.
I’m really good at
Making an ass of myself at the expense of a joke. Making obscure references. Buying books and not reading them. Taking sit-down showers when I'm drunk and not drowning.
The first things people usually notice about me
"Oh my god, you look JUST like my friend XXXXXX!!!" - because I have glasses and a beard.

Other than that, my self-depreciating wit, charm, and humor shine through.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Former library page, so always down for a good book. Prodigal Summer, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo series, The Hours, The Handmaid's Tale, The Bell Jar, Life of Pi, Beloved, Never Let Me Go, The Road, The Falls, The Well and the Mine, The Color Purple, etc.

Slowly making my way through the classics. Can't resist a strong female storyline. Gone with the Wind, All About Eve, Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf, Mildred Pierce, Casablanca, Suddenly, Last Summer, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, Ben-Hur, Now, Voyager, The Hours, Mean Girls, The To Do List, Bridesmaids, etc.

So much TV. So little time. The Golden Girls, Roseanne, All in the Family, I Love Lucy, Arrested Development, Happy Endings, Parks and Rec, Summer Heights High, Miranda, the Mary Tyler Moore Show, Fringe, Mad Men, Hot in Cleveland, Daria, The Office, Veep, Girls, 30 Rock, Ja'mie: Private School Girl, etc. I love HGTV and Food Network. House Hunters and Barefoot Contessa are like crack to me.

Musically, I listen to basically only female musicians. Joni Mitchell, Kate Bush, Laura Marling, Stevie Nicks, Florence and the Machine, Courtney Barnett, Bat for Lashes, Ellie Goulding, Brandi Carlile, Lorde, Sade, Carole King, Carly Simon, The Carpenters, Grace Potter and the Nocturnals, St. Vincent, Haim, CHVRCHES, Carly Rae Jepsen, Lana Del Rey, etc.
The six things I could never do without
Blankets.
Books.
The sweet sounds of Joni Mitchell.
Root beer.
Belly laughs.
Gin.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What I'm going to do when Betty White dies.
What I'm going to eat next.
If I'll ever get through all the books I own or just die in a pile of unread novels.
Why I have a bald patch in my beard.
Why I share the same initials with Dave Matthews Band when I hate them.
On a typical Friday night I am
I vacillate between going out drinking / eating and lying around watching reruns of Roseanne and the Golden Girls.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm a hardcore Maxxinista.
You should message me if
You're down to grab a beer or food or both. Or want to find out what kind of underwear I wear.
