So I guess if we hit it off, you'd be the centre of my (interpersonal) attention?
Outside of work, I also try to maintain some amount of activity, usually climbing at the Stone Gardens gym in Bellevue a couple times a week, doing a short hike, or some light travel.
I'm pretty good at comparison shopping for flights, or making itineraries for example. Also, not being very good at filtering what I say to friends.
I'm usually pretty permissive and non-confrontational, but I also can be pretty untactful in pointing out flaws and inconsistencies. It's not mean-spirited, but it's sort of the way I'm wired. Also, pretty tall for an asian guy.
If on a winter's night a traveler. The Diamond Age. The Design of Everyday Things, The Wealth of Nations, A Brief History of Time, The Republic, The Fountainhead*, Love in the Time of Cholera, The Road, Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, lots of Isaac Asimov and Philip K. Dick.
Typical action/sci-fi/drama/comedy blockbusters mostly. I have a soft spot for Jim Carey films though.
TV: Sherlock, Suits, Mad Men, Game of Thrones, Top Gear, Star Trek: TNG, Documentaries, The Simpsons (Seasons 3-9), The IT Crowd. I was really impressed with the latest series of Cosmos on Fox. And binge-watched HIMYM.
Theatre: Les Miserables, Carousel, The 39 Steps, The Book of Mormon
Pop, Classical (esp. Beethoven's 6th and Mahler's 5th), 90's/00's Alt. Rock.
I do like somewhat folksy/alt. female singers: Florence + the Machine, Metric, Birdy, Feist, Ellie Goulding, A Fine Frenzy, La Roux. Oh, and shameful album of the moment is 1989.
Noodles. Schwartz's smoked meat in Montreal. The chocolate pecan caramel pie at A La Mode here in Seattle. Also trying new stuff; pretty much a well made anything has it's appeal.
-A well-stocked fridge
-Shirts with collars
-Some sort of computer
-Books or other reading material
I also spend a lot of time thinking about fairly pointless stuff online.
Two things tend to dominate my personality and life; a love of order and cleanliness, as well as laziness and indifference to planning things out. That results in some contradictions and interesting juxtapositions.
Assuming you aren't my (and everyone else's) completely unrealistic fantasy: if you've made it this far, are comfortable with who you are, see the world as full of possibilities and hope, and think we might have similar values and interests.
Also, bonus points if you can suggest something I hadn't considered or point out something incongruous about what I've written here: that will almost certainly make me want to have coffee or grab a drink with you.
