My self-summary
When I'm not at work or reading something I'm most likely eating (or reading about the next good place to eat). The rest of my time is spent doing other fun activities such as going on random road trips (and trips in general. I'm currently overdue). Also random projects; my current ones being learning to play the guitar and learning how to break into my own wifi network (I only use my powers for good most of the time).

I've recently moved to Philadelphia and I'm looking to meet new people, go to new places, find fun things to do in the area (or not in the area).

Started running again, but only for my health. Definitely not for competition, or for distance. I vow never to run any distance where nipple-chafing becomes an issue. Not exactly sure what that distance is, but I know it's somewhere between 5k and a marathon. Either way, I don't intend to find out.
What I’m doing with my life
Trying to spend less time indoors and/or at work. I try to learn something new every day.

Going for a drive.
I’m really good at
Crossword puzzles, cooking, pool, cards, trivia, empathizing, scrabble, pictionary...

If you want to win at pictionary, be my teammate.
The first things people usually notice about me
I laugh a lot. I am usually smiling at the very least.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Too many to list them all but a few off the top of my head:

Books:

For Whom the Bell Tolls
A Confederacy of Dunces
Catch-22
Welcome to the Monkey House
The Giving Tree

Music:

Pretty much all music (including country).

Shows: Jeopardy, House, The Wire, NewsRadio, Homeland, South Park, Dr. Who, Suits et al.

Food: Delicious food of all types. My favorite pie is key lime.
The six things I could never do without
Music, good food, the arts, crossword puzzles, reading material.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The enormity of the universe.

Where to go on my next road trip.
On a typical Friday night I am
With friends, laughing, eating, drinking, and being merry or I may be marathon watching the House of Cards season on Netflix. Or perhaps road-tripping to Delaware to go to Waffle House. Or at a concert. There is nothing typical about Friday night.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I've appeared in a Barbara Streisand video.
You should message me if
If you feel like taking a random road trip, or grabbing a drink and go people watching or doing pub trivia, or going on any other adventure usually involving good food, drink and fun.

If you're smarter than me, and have no problem putting people in their place when needed. These are all big pluses.
