My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Student/floating bartender, geek, liberal, feminist, non-fan of labels and a begrudging acceptor of taxonomy in general, book lover, movie lover, peanut butter lover, information sponge, shot a man in Reno just to watch him die, reader of signs, but not the ones on doors which say push or pull, great strategist, lousy dice roller, marshal on mars, from earth, funny, or at least capable of amusing myself, ex logic tutor,consumer of too much caffeine, servant of the Secret Fire, wielder of the flame of Anor, Muppet fan, shy, nerdy, Arthurian Knight in President Obama’s Cabinet, possessor of poor scissoring skills, not to mention hand writing. The above was a least of labels, some more accurate than others, that more or less describe me semi accurately if incompletely. For further edification should it be desired I’ve left a large number of explanations on questions I’ve asked. They would probably give good insight. Also should all else fail please feel free to ask.

Beyond the obvious reason for being on a dating site I’m also trying to fix a flaw in my social circles. My casual acquaintances and coworkers tend to be in their early twenties and while many of them a very nice people they also tend to make me feel old with their not really remembering 9/11 and mistaking Johnny Cash lyrics for Veronica Mars lines. With my closer friends there’s the issue of the Venn diagrams of our interests don’t line up as well as I might like. For example I’m happy I saw Pacific Rim in IMAX 3d, but it’s not a great film. It’s a mediocre film but a great spectacle. It’s the Phantom of the Opera of movies. The stage musical version not the movie. The stage version is a great spectacle, the movie is a dime a dozen period costume piece. Unfortunately once you strip out the spectacle all Phantom, is the dull tale of a girl, the creepy guy who wants to tell her how to live her life and her masked music teacher. But buried under all that somewhere is a great story about two members of the nouveau riche who bought an opera house and their temperamental diva.

Okay that last paragraph kind of got away from me and went strange places. What it boils down to is ideally I’d love to find, if she exists, the woman who would go with me to see Spider-Man and the orchestra. Failing that I’d like to find someone to go to the orchestra with as I already know people who will see Spider-Man.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Recovering from a bad winter, trying to feed the right dog, trying to find a subject for my capstone project, looking at where I want to go for my teacher’s certification after I get my BA, wondering if human sacrifice would appease the weather gods, still ignoring the pile of books on labor history my mom loaned me several years ago, trying not to let the discovery that I can get a pretty decent peanut butter burger delivered to my house ruin me.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
For a guy who doesn’t drink much I seem to have knack for finding jobs involving liquor. I’m also pretty good at trivia. I thought I was pretty good at Words With Friends, but then I had a conversation with my aunt the nationally ranked scrabble player. I have a knack for serendipity.

So here's an example of my knack for serendipity. At work while cleaning the popcorn machine I managed to gash my thumb bad enough that it required four stitches. While driving me to the occupational health center my boss tells me we were both due for random drug tests anyways. So hey two birds with one amazingly sharp tray.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
No idea really, beyond the incredibly obvious. I’ve gotten comments on my eyes. I’ve watched people walk past multiple people wearing watches to ask me what time it was when I’ve had no visible time keeping device. Apparently I suffer from what my dad described as the family curse, we don’t scare shy people. Beyond that, I don’t know what to tell you.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

The media section is always so hard I don’t want to make really long lists that make my eyes glaze over, so here are some random thoughts.

If I wanted to be one specific example of the problems with a lot of geek media, the fact that the makers of the Game of Thrones series managed to film a rape scene without realizing they were doing so seems like a good one.

The combination of taking forever to finally getting round to watching disks and several temporary cancellations of my netflix subscription means I frequently get things with little idea of what they are or where I heard of them. Sometimes it results in a ww2 movie so bad the sergeant is literally shot seconds after saying he was going to look the woman who sheltered them up after the war. Other times it gives me Ornages and Sunshine and I don't know who to thank.

I'm still vastly surprised by the fact that of three incarnations of The Walking Dead, it's the video game which has the best writing and way more non white people than the show.

Normally I would cosign people who talk at the movie's to the special hell the couple who came in late when I saw Inside Llewyn Davis and talked through out the film put me through a scene out of a Cohen brothers movie at the end so I sort of forgive them.

I want Bill Hader to come back to SNL for a weekend update where the 19th century critic reviews Stefan's clubs.

Peter Jackson is the George Lucas of his generation a very talented film maker undone by being so successful no one dares tell them no.

1) The Internet
2) Peanut Butter
3) Books
4) Play
5) Good Conversation
6) The Occasional Late Afternoon Nap
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Oncoming chest cold and comedy club was a bad combo, but worth it.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Floating on the river, or homework.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
So right now I'm being frustrated by the interaction of Facebook and my phone, but one of my cousins posted a link to a t-shirt that's just the words Gray Duck with a silhouette of Minnesota between the words. It will be mine.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You want to go to a taping of an episode of Wits, one of the reasons I haven't gone is lack of some one to go with. Or if something I said interested or amused you. Or if IMDB is down, my dad emailed me once when it was down and I knew the answer. Of course I also didn't read the email until after it was back up, so if time is of the essence, maybe try someone else.
