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.

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
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, within reason. No S&M erotica,
These past few months I've been on a classic science fiction kick.
I re-read Dune, Brave New World, and a bunch of old Ray Bradbury
stories. Innovative and awe-inspiring, as always.
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
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 recently burned my way through Ripper Street and
Daredevil while recovering from a moving injury (why did I think I
was stronger than the bookshelf?), 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 television these
days. I'm a huge fan of British television. Anyone looking at my
Netflix queue would probably assume it belongs to an English senior
citizen; I've never met a British murder mystery I didn't
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

Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.

excursion on occasion, but with middle age swiftly approaching I
generally just drink at home like grandpa should.
