My self-summary
I'm an attorney and I actually like my job, especially since I just switched firms.

I love getting lost in a NY Times crossword puzzle or a good book -- I'm partial to fiction and to books I've read before. (That's the problem with my kindle -- I can't just open to my favorite section based on the crease in the binding). I've recently discovered drawing and painting, which makes me sound far more artistic than I am, but it's relaxing and new, so I'm going with it. You're more likely to find me at a pub trivia night than rappelling off the side of a mountain.

I was in St. Louis in 2004, which was amazing (just ask me for my story about what would have happened if there was a game 5!), but in New York in 2008, which was not nearly as much fun; I could take or leave hockey and basketball, though I can get on the bandwagon of the latter when we're doing well.

Autumn in New England -- I'm not sure it gets better than that. Though I do love Winter in New England...and Spring... and Summer is pretty good. After moving around the country a bunch (St. Louis, Chicago, NYC), I'm pretty set on New England now, and Boston in particular. I've met a great group of friends since moving back here, and now would love to meet a great guy.
What I’m doing with my life
After 6 years in NYC, I moved back to Boston to be nearer to my family.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
When I moved to NYC for law school, I had no cable, a proclivity for procrastination, and the complete series on DVD of the West Wing and Friends -- I can quote pretty much every episode of both. I love Aaron Sorkin's writing and followed him to Studio 60 and the Newsroom, but have had no desire to see the Social Network... go figure. I read pretty fast, so I love big, plot driven books that I can get lost in by authors like John Irving and George Martin. (And if he dies before telling me what happens to Arya, I'm not going to be a happy camper. I really hope he has the answers in some safe deposit box somewhere.)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
- why so many people seem to forget pants on a regular basis (tights aren't pants!)
- how ahead of its time Captain Planet was (or maybe that's why we all care)
- why I write everything important on post-its or index cards and stick them in my planners and notebooks (both for work and in general), rarely writing on the paper.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I love pen shopping way more than any person should.
You should message me if
This is where we are supposed to describe the kind of person we are looking for, right? So I'm going to skip the nice, cute, funny, smart, etc. as I know no one who doesn't think that applies to them.

So how about someone who can follow the double negative in the sentence above without getting confused, because I do that a lot? Someone who has an enormous heart and who is an all around a great guy. Someone who has confidence balanced by warmth; someone who goes after what they want. Someone looking for an emotional and intellectual equal. Must love cuddling. Bonus points for being two or more steps down the path to being what you want to be when you grow up. Even more bonus points for being Jewish and taller than me.

(Turns out, the Jewish thing may be more than just bonus-points-worthy-- it might be a dealbreaker. I know I want to have a Jewish house and Jewish kids eventually, so being on board with that as a possible "someday" scenario is, I guess, a must).

Other than that, I defer to your judgement, though I can't guarantee that will happen often (that's the downside of almost always being right). If you fit the bill, I look forward to hearing from you.
