Some things about me that are more informative than a list of adjectives: The Princess Bride is among my favorite movies; I won a school championship in beer pong when I was an undergrad; I think Fall Out Boy and The Offspring are genuinely good bands; I've been compiling a list of favorite words for about ten years; I played in the inaugural Dodgeball World Championship; and I'm significantly responsible for the presence of a Chipotle on Thayer (you're welcome, everyone). I'm from Minnesota and went to college in California.
For some reason I tend to like girls who drink whiskey. Otherwise, I'm into the usual stuff: intelligence, confidence, enthusiasm, a good sense of humor. Competitiveness is also a plus.
I also have impeccable taste in t-shirts, and I'm pretty good at backgammon.
If the "things" are supposed to be personality traits, this is a hard question for me to answer. So hard, in fact, that I'm not going to answer it.
Shows: Mad Men, Friday Night Lights, House, Archer, 30 Rock, House of Lies, Game of Thrones, Last Week Tonight, Rake (the Australian version).
Books: Lucky Jim, Gates of Fire, anything by Neal Stephenson (especially Cryptonomicon), most things by Neil Gaiman, The Moral Animal, the Song of Ice and Fire series. Thinking, Fast and Slow is the best book I've read in the last few years - I highly recommend it if you're interested in being smarter and/or living a better life.
Food: What I eat is mostly determined by nutritional content; taste is apparently not as important to me as it is to most people.
Songs I will definitely sing or rap if they come on when I've been drinking include Gimme the Loot, Kiss From a Rose, It's Bigger Than Hip-Hop, and any of Nelly's hits. (But notice this is not in the section on things I'm really good at.)
In philosophy my main interests are the nature of morality and how we know things about it. (E.g.: Are there any facts about right and wrong? And if so, what kind of facts are they? Are they like facts about what's pretty, or facts about what's red, or facts about how much mass objects have, or...? And whatever kind of fact they are, how do we know them? We don't seem to be able to see, touch, hear, smell, or taste moral wrongness. Other people tell us about this stuff, but how do they know? More generally, what do the causes of our moral beliefs have to do with the moral facts?) I also taught a class on free will and moral responsibility last year.
And when I'm using this site, I frequently wonder why so many people appear to Capitalize Words at random.
I'm also taking submissions for the worst possible playlist to hook up to.
