Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Let's see. First off, I'm a bit of a geek. Not even gonna try to
deny it. Sometimes I feel I know something about everything.
EVERYTHING. Hey, sometimes it's even something useful. Then again,
sometimes someone mentions what the "withers" of a horse is, and I
think, "I knew that. HOW DID I KNOW THAT?"
For relaxation I tend to curl up with a video game. Which genre
depends on my mood. More interested in the gameplay and story than
the latest graphics, which sorta says a lot about me in
I also enjoy Role Playing Games (PnP), and various board games.
Those tend to depend a lot less on the game, and a lot more on the
I enjoy a good story, whether that's text, film, or game. Sometimes
I pick my favourites apart so much people might think I dislike
them, but it's more that my inclination when I really enjoyed a
movie/book/etc. is to figure out WHY. What was it I liked? Were
there subtle things the author did that helped my enjoyment? I love
knowing enough about what goes into making a good movie/etc. to
really appreciate when it's done well, though I have no interest in
taking on that role myself.
I enjoy music (though I don't normally listen to it), and tend to
have a decent ear. I've been in choir, played clarinet, flute, and
even viola. Haven't played the clarinet and flute in a while
though, they're gathering dust. When a gathering includes Rock Band
I tend to gravitate straight for the mic until I'm hoarse. I'm
pretty sure my friends would tell me if they'd rather I put the mic
down, at least I hope they would.
Religion wise I was raised Jewish. Now I'm sorta Jewish
Agnosto-Athiest Deist sorta thing. Though I still don't eat pork or
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Well, ideally, between jobs at the moment. Background's in Physics.
I just love learning about the stuff that goes on 'behind the
scenes' and how things work, including the universe.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Wow. I hate this section. I'm definitely NOT good at recognizing
what I'm good at.
Ok, well, I tend to understand technical/logical things well. I
think visually, so while I might be able to easily navigate having
looked at a map once beforehand, if you asked me any street names
I'd be stumped.
I tend to delve into the details of what I'm doing. If it's a game,
I want to know the rules and how they're interacting. I can play it
either taking advantage of how things work or not, but I prefer it
to be by choice, rather than ignorance.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Well, I asked a couple friends what they thought.
"The beard" was out almost before I finished asking the
Style has varied from nonexistant to "Grizzly Adams." I'm currently
tending towards "trimmed short, edges grow where they grow."
Beardless just tends to feel odd, as in "look in the mirror and it
doesn't look like me even after a few months" odd.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Gosh, I have to narrow it down?
Books: Ok, top of the list has to be most anything Pratchett. I
love the Discworld series. Also on the list needs to be Asimov,
general Science Fiction, Brandon Sanderson (Mistborn), and Jim
Butcher (Hmm, Dresden Files or Codex Alera, tough choice).
Movies it's generally action/suspense. Sometimes I want something
deep, that will make me question how I see the world, and sometimes
I want explosions and sound in space. Most recently standing out
I've enjoyed the recent Marvel superhero movies, but Sherlock
Holmes: Game of Shadows takes the cake. It helps that I'm a strong
Sherlock fan anyway, and enjoy the various takes on the classic
Music: I tend to have eclectic tastes in music. Dislike the same
genre for long stretches. I really don't go out of my way to listen
to music much. When driving I turn to the oldies station, might put
on Queen or Styx on my iPod when shopping. My ear tends to have a
soft spot for Klezmer.
Food: Meat, potatoes, and chilies. I don't tend to do much fancy
(most complex recipe is approx.: take meat, put in oven with mixed
veggies, cook until done). I enjoy spicy food, love a good salsa,
but I'm not a fan of heat just for heat sake. I like to be able to
taste my food. So while I enjoy spicy food, it's possible to go too
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Oof. Well, honestly...
My computer (it's my primary link to friends across the state and
country, and bills etc., aside from entertainment value)
Books books and more books.
A few more books.
Sleep. Been there, been sleep deprived no matter how much I slept
(see below). It sucks.
Food and water. Ok, not just in the obvious, when I'm
hungry/thirsty I tend to get grumpy and snippy.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Either taking in a movie (depends what's out), or hanging out at
home chatting/playing games with friends online.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
One: I'm horrible with names of people/places/things. It's really
frustrating. It's basically as if in my mental filing system, the
labels tend to fall off. Most annoying is the impression this can
give others. I might have been chatting with someone, know what
they like to do, job, etc. Name? No clue, and that makes it seem
that I wasn't paying attention at all. I was, just a lot of the
time names do NOT stick for me unless they're written (again, I
tend to be visually inclined, so when I see the name it sticks
better than when I hear it).
Two: I have Obstructive Sleep Apnea, so I wear a pressurized air
mask when I sleep. If I don't, my throat tends to close and I stop
breathing, which really disrupts my sleep cycle (felt like a
sleepwalking zombie in Grad School until I was diagnosed). Oh, and
sleeping without the mask causes me to snore.
