I'm curious, sarcastic, talkative, and spontaneous. I love making fun of myself and others. I'm fascinated by nerdy things--especially anything science-related.
So, I decided to forego the riches of online poker, and I've now finished my fourth year (of five) in the PhD program in computer science at NYU, which I love.
Making ice cream. (Recent flavors include watermelon, walnut and fig, lemon, and charoset.)
Making people laugh.
Games. (All of them.) (Well.. some of them.) (Including Bananagrams.)
Recently listened to list includes The Decemberists, Led Zeppelin, Broken Social Scene, Sufjan Stevens, Radiohead, The New Pornographers, Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Tallest Man on Earth, Sigur Ros, Neutral Milk Hotel, Beck, and Jimi Hendrix.
For fiction, I love everything I've read by Kurt Vonnegut and J.D. Salinger. Some others: Catch-22, Siddhartha, and Spring and All. I also like nerdy non-fiction. Favorites include Guns, Germs, and Steal, The Selfish Gene, The Information, etc.
TV: Breaking Bad, Futurama, Last Week Tonight, Game of Thrones, Archer, Narcos, Seinfeld, Planet Earth (I also like the planet itself), Fargo.
I love good food. It's hard for me to imagine leaving NY because of the awesome variety of great restaurants.
Podcasts: This American Life, Snap Judgement, Serial, Love & Radio, Mystery Show, and various nerdy science things that often put me to sleep.
Also, xkcd. If you like xkcd, then we probably will get along.
Hmm… not at six yet. I'm low maintenance. Just sit me at my computer with some good food, and let me make frequent sarcastic comments, and I'm good to go.
