My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I have no clue what to write here. I am your standard nerdy and jaded thirtysomething who has it all figured out/knows absolutely nothing about life.

Yuck, self-description is awful. The only interesting things I can think of to list are potential character flaws, which, if you meet me, will make themselves known soon enough, I'm sure.

Humor. I thrive on humor. Make me laugh and we'll get along just fine. Being a smarty-pants is good, too. Wearing good pants: also a plus. Oh wait, this is supposed to be about me...
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
You're reading it.

Also, I work in healthcare, so if you're in need of horrifying/disgusting hospital stories I can probably accommodate.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
spelling and making toast.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Sarcasm. Unnatural whiteness. Chances are I will remind you of a celebrity or fictional character with no hair. Popular choices are Lord Voldemort, Maynard Keenan, Powder, and most recently Boy George.

Yeah, that last one was a bit tough to swallow...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

More than I can list here. I have more books than is healthy to own (and counting) and a tablet, which means I spend about 98% of my time reading. Please don't tell my boss.

I read equal parts fiction and nonfiction. History, science, and biography are probably my favorites in the nonfiction department. Favorite fiction authors off the top of my head are Anne Rice, China Miéville, Wesley Stace, Ian McEwan, Charles Dickens, Lian Hearn, Donna Tartt, Ursula Le Guin, and, of course, Tolkien. I'll give just about anything a shot, though. Except Twilight. Vampires do not sparkle. They do not attend high school.

The last good book I read was "Arrowroot" by Junichirō Tanizaki. I have a fondness for Japanese fiction, and this is among the best I've ever come across.

I love most ethnic cuisine, excluding Eskimo and anything from Bizarre Foods, but I will attempt to try new things so long as they're not too bizarre...you know, like balut or kæstur hákarl.

I listen to music that I like, regardless of its popularity, which means I like a lot of stuff that people have never heard of. Yeah, I'm that guy.

Television: I'm currently in love with Penny Dreadful and Hemlock Grove, but I'll watch anything that strikes my geeky fancy. Anything that makes me laugh is most welcome, and fortunately there's a lot of that on TV. I'm a huge fan of British television. I cannot get enough. Anyone looking at my Netflix queue would probably assume it belongs to an English senior citizen.

Also, life could never be complete without a liberal dose of the Golden Girls. In heaven I live on their street and we have parties on the lanai.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Coffee, red wine in moderation (or excess if the mood is right), books and their digital equivalent, tomatoes...lovely lovely tomatoes, my phone that is smart, and the sweet oblivion of Netflix/Hulu Plus.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
clever ways to frighten people.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
hopefully doing something not stupid. I do enjoy a drinking excursion on occasion, but with middle age swiftly approaching I generally just drink at home like grandpa should.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I love taking ugly photos of myself; it's freeing. If you ask real nice I'll send you one!
