My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I have been told to lead with the "romance dance card is full...friends only please" and I think that is a more than fair criticism, especially if you read through the entire damn thing. (...but stay till the end for a special prize!)

People tend to not want to bludgeon me with toasters....I consider this is a positive reflection on my personality. What more is there to say? If I divulged everything here, where would the mystery be? We can't have you knowing that I often imagine muppets singing oldies, I often move some computer speakers to my kitchen so I can watch Dr. Who or listen to Daft Punk while I cook, have been known to read webcomics and listen to James Bond soundtracks when I can't sleep, and that I enjoy watching the dog chase rope around a coffee table. You shouldn't know such is too much. Too much I say!

I am nerdelicious, geekirrific, and dorktastic
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I wish my job was filled with creative brain explosions or awesome jetpacks but it is not....It is more filled with construction codes and reports.

I went to school to become Indiana Jones and previously worked in museums and as a teacher, all which I miss, but I can dig my new pays the bills and I have a hat that prevents my skull from getting caved in, so that's good.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Holding a smile....a necessary skill when your dad used to take a billion family photos.

My grin was once timed at 10 minutes without wavering before someone tried to grab my crotch.

I still held the smile though.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
An old roommate once accused me of being part cartoon....he would not elaborate on what that meant.

I was told to comb my hair recently. It occasionally goes all manner of flopsy. I guess this means that it was noticed.

When I grew my hair out my brother called me Gaius Baltar...I am pretty sure it has to do with the hair length and nothing to do with genocide or hallucinations. Pretty sure.

People also notice my ability to ramble and occasionally talk in complete paragraphs. I blame my high caffeine intake levels and my history as an educator respectively.

I have also been accused of being loud. When I am comfortable with a group of folk, loudness happens. Brunch with my family is a festival of humor and laughter that has been known to fill a restaurant.

A few of the best compliments I have ever received were:
"You are kind of like the Mexican Xander Harris."
"If you were shorter and had longer hair you could be Thorin Oakenshield."
"You kind of have a Johnny Cash thing going on right now"
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books.....a favorite? just one? you are kidding right? I am falling for authors and genre's all the time. I always love fiction and satire (i.e Adams, Pratchett, Moore) and dark twisted fiction (i.e. Palahniuk, Lindsay) but really it depends on my mood. Some books that never get old are: World War Z, Good Omens, Lamb: the Gospel according to Biff-Christ's childhood pal, Ender's Game, Princess Bride, I am Legend, To Kill a Mockingbird, A Clockwork Orange, The Road, The Dragon Prince and Dragon Star series, The Phantom Tollbooth, The Song of Fire and Ice (Even though Martin often fills me with rage), Hitchhikers Guide to the name a few. What can I say, I like to read. I realize it's a wide spectrum and quite a few things at once but I have sometimes have the attention span of a over caffeinated rat terrier. I try to focus on one book at a time but usually fail miserably...this leads a lot of half finished novels at any given moment. I am also plagued by an addiction to used bookstores. I have a hard time passing up thrift store book finds, no matter how deep the "To Read" queue gets. Currently audiobooks are helping me chip away at that queue during my long commute so if you have something good to lend I would welcome it.

Movies....hmmmm, see above. I love movies and will give many things a chance (as long as it does not focus on street racing or dance challenges...I seriously worry about modern movies). You can't beat a good old movie (preferable starring Cary Grant or Audry Hepburn), a good swashbuckling adventure (Princess Bride, Indiana Jones), or the utter insanity that is Extreme Asian cinema (I am convinced that no one can do horror better. I don't rattle easy but "Audition" made me cringe)

Often Fixated on: Singing in the Rain, Wuthering Heights, Conan the Barbarian, Serenity, Auntie Mame, Arsenic and Old Lace, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, From Russia with Love, Crybaby, Pacific Rim, Tombstone, Casablanca, Tangled, Godzilla vs. Mothra, Hedwig and the Angry Inch, and always (for some odd reason) Big Trouble in Little China

Music: Favorites usually fall within the indie rock persuasion. The mood will strike for something different on occasion, running the gambit across several genres...

Musicians Currently getting the most play time on my ipod: Massive Attack, Dr. Horrible soundtrack, Fallout 3 GNR soundtrack, The Shins, Miles Davis, The Faint, White Stripes, Ladytron, Ella Fitzgerald, Arcade Fire, She and Him, Beethoven, The Blasting Company, Jonathan Richman, Matt and Kim, El Haru Kuroi, Honey Honey, The Cramps, Killsonic, the Editors, Poxy Boggards, Gogol Bordello, X, The Beatles, Camera Obscura, Agent Ribbons, Best of Bond, etc...
While the Ipod gets the most play time I also listen to KCRW, NPR, and KTLK and a few podcasts LIke the Nerdist. I have also been known to listen and contribute to the Happy Jack's RPG podcast...I did mention I am huge frickin' nerd right?

TV: I loved me some Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, and Firefly. Some other shows that deserve some love are Doctor Who, Madmen, Battlestar Galactica, House of Cards, the Middleman, the West Wing, Supernatural, and Leverage. I tend to catch up on my TV when I am sick....I polished off a few seasons of BSG while I had acute bronchitis, it made hacking up vital organs more bearable.

Comics: Yes please. Not enough? Fine. Some graphic novels that I enjoy would be: Y The Last man, Preacher, Chewed, Saga, most Brubaker, and The Ultimate marvel universe before they got crappy. Some webcomics I have bookmarked: Questionable Content, Girls with Slingshots, xkcd, Penny Arcade, Something Positive, Tweep, Troops of Doom, etc...

Food: Anything...I love to explore new kinds of food, different cultures, and new recipes. I have only found one thing that I am not down for thus far....durian. If you know what it is then you know why. I am proficient in making many foods, but one thing that eludes me is is a mystery. I was thinking about taking a class. If cooking is an art, baking is a science...I always did better in art than in science (damn measuring cups!)

Currently craving: a nectarine, bacon, some kind of miniature burger, falafel, New York style pizza, Sushi....Unagi and salmon skin rolls to be exact, and Yogurtland....not necessarily together. I've been embarking into the world of vegetarian and vegan cuisine of late and have found the forays to be not horrible. I'm not ready to forsake my omnivorous lifestyle just yet but I don't mind kale.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Family, friends, and my jerk dog are of course on this list but on the more superficial side of things I would have to say:

Used bookstores
Pie in its many glorious forms
More Coffee
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How much I adore museums. I loved the Natural History in NYC....I wish ours was as grand. We do have other wonderfully esoteric places here though, anyone for a trip to the Museum of Jurassic Technology?

Why security at LAX dislikes me so.....I am a nice guy.

What kind of tattoo I want to get next, the one I have is lonely.

Roller Derby....while I enjoy watching sports on occasion (especially live) Banked Track Roller Derby is the only one I actively follow and go to often.

How to best campaign for the position of Godfather of my friends' unborn children.

Brick vs. Concrete vs. Decking vs. letting nature swallow my house whole.

How hard would it be to do self dentistry?

How much I miss working at the Museum...I need to clear off some time in my schedule and start volunteering at the Tar Pits or something.

How the world will not end at the hands of a zombie apocalypse but at the mandibles of an unstoppable robotic ant horde.

How geek-tabulous activities (RPG, Ren Faire, Comics, etc) make me extremely ex-wife never understood that and I enjoy spending time with people who do.

Why am I awake at 2am watching Dr. Who or Torchwood when I have to go to work at dawn?

It has been pointed out that I glance aroud a lot at my surroundings when walking about the city. I am still paying attention to you, I am also trying to figure out if the sidewalk or street was repaired properly and what utilities are marked. Work occupies my mind from time to time.

Since my roommate moved out recently, I am giving serious thought to turning his room into a ball pit. I am pretty sure I can get them wholesale.

Also since I live alone now, I often forsake wearing pants while at home. There are times that I have decided against going out simply because pants were required.

I am still going pretty strong on the quit smoking thing....I occasionally partake in a cigar or a hookah but haven't had a cigarette in more than a year.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
My Friday tends to vary. More often than not it has ended by finishing up work, having myself a hot bath, a bourbon, a movie, and watch the dog run in circles around the coffee table. Occasionally it is hitting a bar or dinner with friends, playing a game (board or video), or finding something in the LA Weekly.

I've been looking to hit more plays, galleries, and readings so if you got something in mind let me know.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have geek love for the works of Joss Whedon and a man cush on Nathan Fillion.

I am not very good at disciplining my dog, he is very is quite disarming.

I wanted to be Indiana Jones when I grew up...I got a brief taste of it and on occasion regret not getting more. Then I remember that life is too short for regrets and move along with life.

I enjoy Musicals. Okay, you can stop laughing seriously, you can stop. I'll wait here until your done.
any minute now.
...screw it, moving on....
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You made it! Now for your special prize...My psuedo-sister commented that if anyone actually read through this entire profile I would owe them coffee. By all means, claim this free coffee but you may be quizzed on my ramblings before the transaction can be completed.

Honestly, message me if you want to give me stickers or buy me a cup of coffee. I could always use a cup of coffee and stickers rule. I am easy that way, and as my schedule is finally starting to wind down I may actually be able to go out. Woo!

I also need new folk for random text message haiku, snapchat offerings, or pictures of baby otters.

I have been embarking on adventures with a young lady of the lovely and super Rad variety so my romance dance card is currently full. That being said, friendship is always welcome because friends are awesome. So once again, feel free to drop a line if it seems we would get along...or for the aforementioned sticker/coffee/haiku/snapchat/otter offerings.
