Personal Ad for 7/28/08

Hi, I’m Jeremy. I’m 6’1 with glasses and dark wavy hair, and I’m broad shouldered (which is code for “I’m not skinny but I’m not a mess either”).
Apparently (I just did an IM survey) I have nice (hazel) eyes and a pretty mouth (Deliverance style!), and I’m cuter than my pictures. I’m a Jew by birth, but other than the penchant for self-deprecating humor and latkes, I’m not religious. Or cheap. And yes, I have pictures. And a Facebook account, like everyone else.

I enjoy all kinds of wordplay, I like to cook and I’m pretty funny (well, that creepy Facebook app that has you rate your friends seems to think so, anyway). It annoys me that there’s no way to talk to a stranger on the subway without it being a whole personal space invasion thing. I think quiet nights at home with movies and a home made meal (preferably made collaboratively) are awesome.

I inhale new music of all genres (seriously, pandora and last.fm have no idea what to recommend, it’s kind of depressing… SoftLord is my last.fm username if you want to stalk my tastes), read a ton of blogs and generally enjoy learning about people and…things. Some of my favorite things are: anything Jim Henson-related, anything Neil Finn-related, anything Alton Brown-related. I never use a miniscule word when a long one will suffice. Not “do,” “suffice.” I have a big plasma-screen TV for movie, but I swear I’m not overcompensating.

I work at a record label, making blogs and podcasts and responding to fan emails, in an attempt to have everyone love music on a deep level as much as I do.

Here’s a joke: How many surrealists does it take to change a light bulb pasta bicycle cyclops?

Are you in your mid-to-late 20s? Do you read books on the train? Have you always wanted Carl Kasell’s voice on your home answering machine? Did you stop watching The West Wing after season 4? Do you have trouble keeping up with RSS feeds? Are you always running out of room on your iPod? Do you love making out? Do you always wish you had someone to try out new recipes with? Do you crack yourself up? Then we’d probably get along smashingly. I dig quick-witted, smart, interesting and interested self-assured women with a wide variety of interests (mmm…geek girls). I’ll cook if you do the dishes. Or we can skip it and go to brunch, I know a place that has amazing crepes and is open late.

In terms of a physical type, think more Janeane Garofalo and less Paris Hilton (though my ultimate fantasy is Lauren Ambrose).

I’m mostly hoping to be able to experience new people and what we can offer each other. It would be great to find someone to make laugh and to share work stories with at post-NPR brunch. Yes I’m a nerdy middle-class New Yorker.

Anyway, if you’ve managed to read this far without closing the tab and going back to the index, then congratulations to you and I owe you a cookie, and if any of this strikes a chord with you (hopefully an Eb minor), feel free to drop me a line!

I dig quick-witted, smart, interesting and interested self-assured women with a wide variety of interests (mmm…geek girls). Also, you must love to make out. And please be somewhere around my age (mid-20s or a lil older is cool). I’ll cook if you do the dishes. Or we can skip it and go to brunch, I know a place that has amazing crepes. In terms of a physical type, think more Janeane Garofalo and less Paris Hilton (though my ultimate fantasy is Lauren Ambrose). I do like women on the taller side, since I’m tall myself, but its not a rule.
