I'll try to spare you all the generic - and often time
contradictory - adjectives about my personality that people seem to include in their profile :-) I'll let you make up your own mind as
to if I'm "funny, kind, and energetic", and try to stick with more
concrete descriptions :-)
I think that I'm best described as a science geek. I love science
and I'm proud of it! So, if you find xkcd funny, you and I will get
along well :-) That said, nothing makes me happier than spending a lazy Saturday sitting at a good bar (usually JJ Mahoney's), chatting up the bartender and the other customers. On occasion, I've been able to combine my two loves, like when I met two former NASA engineers at the bar. I apparently blew them away with my knowledge of the Space Shuttle. I guess it's not every day they meet someone who knows where on the control panel the OMS engine switches are located!
If online dating profiles are to be believed (and why wouldn't they
be?), I'm the only person in the Seattle area who doesn't spend
every weekend skiing in winter and rock climbing in summer. This
summer, I'm trying to change that and get outside more often during the 10 day window during the summer where Seattle has decent weather :-)
I'm open to all sorts of relationships. Primarily, I'm wanting to
start with a casual romantic relationship and see where it goes
from there. If I find love and a long term relationship, great. If
not, I'll enjoy every step of the way!
I am something, something and something.
I love writing software. To me it combines the intellectual process of engineering (trying to come up with a better solution, making the best tradeoffs, and taking a critical eye at what you've done to try to see where you might have missed something) with the aestetic beauty of art. A well written piece of code is a beauitful thing, and I'm excited when I get to be the person who creates that thing.
(luckily my team at work shares my sense of humor :) ).
Driving stick. It seems like it's a vanishing skill, so I'm pretty
proud of it.
At one point in my life, I was really good at flying airplanes.
Good enough, in fact, that they let me teach others to fly! That's
a frightening thought!
My guilty pleasure is watching cheesy horror movies. When AMC's MonsterFest roles around in October, I'm in heaven!
I've recently added Jason Statham action movies to my list of favorite cheesy movies. It's a newcomer, but it's showing progrss.
My favorite TV show would be Strangers with Candy. If you like this show - let's just cut to the chase - I'd like to meet you :-) Obviously other great shows are Family Guy, American Dad, Robot Chicken, The Office, South Park, Dexter, Breaking Bad, Nova (and NovaScienceNOW), and American Greed. Not a fan of reality shows. If the show invoves 20 woman parading themselves out in front of one guy desperately trying to get him to pick them over all the other women, I usually want to throw stuff at the TV (and lose my faith in humanity just a bit more).
My favorite music is whatever I happen to be in the mood for at the time. Frank Zappa is always on the list. Indigo Girls songs (at least the songs written by Amy) are always good. The Lonely Island is hilarious. Ben Folds with or without the Five. Van Morrison's album Moondance is sublime. Big Star is classic. This week I've pretty much gone thru Cake's entire catalog.
Food is usually anything grilled. I find that grilling is a simple way to take a basic meal and make it awesome. I go to Saporro Teryiaki about 2-3 times a week. Tropeo in Redmond is incredible!
But I do have an addiction for Jagermeister and my iPhone :-)
Also, what the hell my neighbors are doing to make all that noise?
What kind of person STILL takes Sarah Palin seriousy?
If there's anyone on OKCupid who *isn't* looking for someone with a good sense of humor? Also, is there anyone who believes that they do not have a good sense of humor?
Finally taking a flight across the Atlantic (seriously, I have this dream about once a month!).
Why OKCupid keeps resetting my profile to say that I'm only looking for new friends.
You saw the Peekskill meteor.
Or, if you're just interested :).
Remember, there's no bouncer trying to keep you out :)
