My self-summary
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
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
spelling and making toast.
The first things people usually notice about me
Sarcasm. Unnatural whiteness. Chances are I will remind you of a celebrity or fictional character with no hair. Popular choices are Lord Voldemort, Howie Mandel, Maynard Keenan, and Powder.
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 Nook, 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 "The Goldfinch" by Donna Tartt. In fact, "good" does not do it justice. It was so fantastically well-written that I want to punch myself in the face every time I think about it. There, that's better.

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 enjoy the staples...Downton Abbey, True Blood, Game of Thrones, etc. Anything that makes me laugh is most welcome, like It's Always Sunny and Little Britain. 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.

I most currently enjoyed the shit out of Hannibal, Sherlock, and The Fall, and am eagerly awaiting new seasons of each.

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
Coffee, red wine in moderation (or excess), books and their digital equivalent, "bad" carbs, my phone that is smart, and the sweet oblivion of Netflix.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
clever ways to frighten people.
On a typical Friday night I am
hopefully doing something not stupid. I do enjoy a good dive bar 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 have an unparalleled fear of sea monsters. Are they real? I don't know, but they're fucking terrifying!
I’m looking for
  • Guys who like guys
  • Ages 27–46
  • Near me
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
you like nerds, toast, and being frightened in potentially clever ways.
