Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
According to the Nerd-Geek-Dork Test on here, I'm "pure nerd." But
I've always felt like more of a geek. I've never been very good at
math and I can't fix your computer. However, I'm passionate about
the things I love and endlessly fascinated by things in this big
beautiful world. My television habits focus on the Discovery,
History, and Travel Channels (and any channel showing an episode of
Scrubs). I recently went to live in New Zealand for a year, and now
I'm hopelessly in love with the country and eager to return, as
well as to travel to other countries. I have a film degree and I'm
a trained projectionist so I am very passionate about movies,
though I gravitate more towards the goofy and odd than what one
might expect. I've seen more zombie and vintage Jackie Chan films
than a productive human being probably should. My hobby is nature
videography. I've always enjoyed making people laugh and I spend
much of my time trying to do that. I'm very laid back, and open
minded, and tend not to take too many things too seriously. I'm the
type that notices the person who's not having fun and focuses on
trying to get them to have some fun, whether it's at work or play.
This is my first crack at a self-summary, which is sort of an
awkward thing to write so expect me to edit this on a regular
basis, as I do with just about anything I write :P. Overall, I
don't know if I'm more Nerd, Geek, or Dork. I guess I'd like to
think I'm an odd but fun hybrid of all three. Hopefully you'll
think so too!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working, saving up to travel again. Trying to write more often,
maybe re-kickstart the ancient art of letter writing. Trying to
finish a 2000 piece jigsaw puzzle slowly but surely. Enjoying Shark
Week. Learning to cook more things, to learn French and Maori, see
more movies, try out more restaurants, and of course meet new
people. But that one you probably knew already.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
making people laugh, even if it's at my own expense. Learning new
things, making work fun. I'm good at sales though I don't enjoy it
as much as I once did. Learning new languages. Making scrambled
eggs. Rubber band marksmanship. Exploring and learning about new
places. Apparently not so great at jigsaw puzzles. Giving advice
although I seem to be totally immune to my own, for some reason.
Putting a tent up in the rain. Getting a smile out of someone who
doesn't feel like smiling. Being able to tell you the name of that
actor who was in that movie about the thing and what's-her-name was
in it too (The answer, by the way, is Stephen Tobolowsky.)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My glasses and my smirk. My glasses because even though I have
contact lenses, wearing glasses feels more like me, a bit nerdy and
introspective. My smirk because it seems to be there most of the
time, be it a sarcastic smirk or a playful one or because I got a
question right while watching Cash Cab.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
XBox360, Notebook and a good pen, camera, digital video camera,
Lucky Charms, Netflix, and a stack of good books.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Seriously, why does that rich Russian guy in the DirectTV
commercial have a tiny giraffe, and where can I get one? My
writing, new ideas for stories. Why anyone would ever listen to
Glenn Beck. Why people are so obsessed with Twlight when it's so so
awful. Why Americans care more about what Lindsay Lohan is doing
than they do about people in other countries with no access to
clean water. Traveling again very soon. Getting back to New
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Typically I'm working. If not, then maybe seeing an opening night
movie or trying out a new restaurant. Or I might be relaxing at
home playing video games. Or maybe watching "Smallville." But we
can pretend I didn't just admit that last one out loud.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I... don't know how to say this so I'm just going to say it: I have
XBox360 boxer shorts.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
you like a good zombie flick (or even a bad one... hell, especially
a bad one), spiders don't scare you, you're not averse to sleeping
outdoors and possibly even away from indoor plumbing, you like
seafood (the odder the better), you enjoy a nice long hike or a day
trip to some new interesting locale or travel in general, you can
quote "Ghostbusters" or "The Goonies." You know who Bruce Campbell
is. You want to check out that new french bistro or that new
indie/horror/Matt-Damon-kicking-someone's-ass film and don't feel
like going alone.
