I'm somewhere between Andy Dwyer and Ron Swanson.
I'm originally from Upstate NY (where we keep all the trees), and spent 2 years in NJ (the nice part, but still... Jersey) before moving to the city 6 years ago.
Is there something between one night stand and serious girlfriend? Cuz that's what I'm looking for. Something with no pressure or games, just two people enjoying each other's company.
I'm not against something real, but I'm often VERY busy, so I don't really have time to invest in a serious relationship right at the moment.
Anything else you want to know about me you'll either have to read further or ask me. (Actual contact with another human? That's just crazy talk!)
I also have a Tumblr where each day I post a song about a historical event for that day. Some days are more difficult to do than others, so I spend a lot of time researching that.
Or sleeping. Not gonna lie, I LOVE sleeping. I need to get a job sleeping. Like an MTA employee. (Jokes, America. I got jokes.)
Bumping my head a lot and otherwise generally injuring myself in fun new ways. My old boss called me "Crash."
Making up new lyrics to songs.
Eating delicious food. I eat the FUCK out of good food.
Then they notice my hair and tattoos and say I look like I should've been on "Sons of Anarchy." Lately I've been getting Khal Drogo.
Also apparently I look Croatian. I'm only 1/4 Croat, but the old Balkan men in my neighborhood talk to me like we're back in Karlovac.
Pretty much any Vonnegut, Heinlein, or Palahniuk. Steppenwolf, American Gods, Bossypants, League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Jitterbug Perfume, just started ASOIAF. Currently reading: Modern Romance
Dirty Dozen, Big Lebowski, Roger Rabbit, and too many others. Too many. Most recent watched: The Night Before and The Wolfpack.
I'm huge into GoT, and I quote Futurama, 30 Rock, and Arrested Development in casual conversation. Also other shows you probably watch. Currently watching: Man in the High Castle, Jessica Jones, Brooklyn 99, and as always: SVU
I have an incredibly eclectic musical taste, but predominantly like hard rock, 90s rock & hip-hop, but I also dig folk, old country, blues, Motown, etc. Currently listening to: Faith No More and Clutch's new albums, STP, Run the Jewels, Ramones, and J Roddy Walston & the Business.
I generally prefer food that used to have legs. I also like food from all over the world (living in Queens helps). And of course, salt potatoes. You don't even know what those are, but you love them. They're that good.
- music (I don't think you understand how important music is to me)
- intelligent conversation (I don't get enough)
- a creative outlet (I love making things)
- my car (it's not much, but it's a way out of town, and it's mine)
- naps (sleep is the best)
- I tried to not say "my phone" but who am I kidding?
The semantics of the OKC questions.
The logistics involved in the construction of various structures and buildings.
The paradox of HATING the tourists, but knowing my job depends on all all the sweet money brought in by the chain-smoking Québécois and mouth-breathing Appalachians that clog our sidewalks.
Hoping Québécois women aren't offended by that last statement. UPDATE: at least one is, she wrote to tell me.
You're 5'9" or taller. I'm serious, that's a deal breaker. Nothing against shorter women, there's just any number of annoyances that come with dating someone drastically shorter than me.
You're GGG too.
