Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I really hate writing these things, but I really shouldn't leave
this blank. Hi. I'm sort of your classic northwest born computer
geek. Very left leaning, socially libertarian, (L deliberately left
lower case) and looking for social interaction. Over the years I
have become somewhat... feral. This isn't me trying to sound like
some kind of tough guy, and if you've ever been around feral cats
you know what I'm talking about: Skittish around strangers but I'm
ok once I get to know you. :)
** Update **
Ok, been working on the feral thing.... I'm still a bit of a hermit
but I have been getting out more often. I still have a need for
what a friend once called 'man-cave time...' but that's more or
I am independent, leftist, and slightly feral
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Currently looking for work and trying to live my life. I've moved
back to the Portland area and am getting settled in.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Computers and listening to people. I'm also reasonably good at
being.... a bit paranoid. (You get used to it.) :)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'll get someone else to write this part. :) It'll be more honest
from "someone else": You'll notice his intelligence, his intense
gaze, and his sexy voice. Well, that's what I noticed, anyway.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I'm a big Robert Heinlein buff, (the sort that was mortally
offended by the movie version of Starship Troopers) plus the
classics. Frank Herbert, Roger Zelazny, (of course) JRR Tolkien....
plus more modern works, largely from the Baen crowd. David Weber,
(big Honor Harrington fan) Eric Flynt, John Ringo.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Aside from the basics of life, I've learned over the years that
there's very little I actually can't live without. Whether I enjoy
the experience or not doesn't really enter into the equation.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Politics, (I'm intensely political) video games, (Edit: Tabula Rasa
is dead. To hell with NCSoft. I won't be going back to City of
Heroes/Villains either, soooo.... I guess I'm continuing on my
Nethack binge until I find another MMO) sex, (I'm male. Deal.) and
life in general. :)
** edit **
Recently got back into Everquest. (Hey, it's free.) Currently I'm
working on that and other thoughts include the various political
issues that are important to me.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Home gaming usually. Also frequently laundry and posting on teh
I can be found on DailyKos and YouTube when I'm not
** update **
Being dragged back into SecondLife turned out to be a much more
temporary thing than I had suspected it might be.
** update update **
Got booted from DailyKos. Apparently being an uppity minority is a
problem. Who knew? Oh and youtube is a wretched hive of scum and
villainy. That one didn't come as nearly as much of a surprise.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I think we've gotten about as private as I'm willing to get on a
site full of strangers. I do answer questions honestly, but
anything private would have to require that I know the person in
question. :) (I also reserve the right to refuse to answer
questions that would involve someone else's privacy.)
