My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Rarely has a new year been so damn, well, new! I find myself, with January not yet over, about to start a new life in a city I had no intention of moving to. I have a couple of creative projects just waiting for me to settle into said new life before they see the light of day. Then there's the ever important resetting of my OKCupid questions, I mean talk about shaking the foundations of ones life!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Moving. About to start afresh in a new location, which is not something I thought I'd do when I rang in the new year. Granted, I was pretty damn drunk, we all were, the entire party forgot the damned countdown, next thing you know "Oh shit, it's midnight!" and a "Happy New Year!" rang out mangled with the laughter of drunken beauties finding the whole thing utterly hilarious. There's your brief story time folks, you're welcome.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Apparently I make an awesome soup. At least I'm a fan, and at the end of the day, it's my own damn tastebuds that matter! At least until I stop with this whole 'single' thing.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My dashing good looks, my mighty forehead, my concentrated awesome height, you tell me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I love this list, no matter how often I change this profile, this is the list that will grow. I might condense it some day, but I kind of like it this way, we'll see which way the wind blows come the future.

Finch, Jeff VanDermeers fungal Steam Punk noir, a damn good read if a little odd in it's style.
Jim Butcher's fantasy series Codex Alera. He is also the author of the Dresden Files series which kicks much ass.
Fond of Glen Cook's Black Company books. Slowly getting through the third omnibus, keep running into distractions though, been spacing it out with some H.P. Lovecraft and other books. Working on Jim Butchers "Side Jobs", a compilation of his Dresden Files short stories.

Steven Brust, Steven Erickson, Stephen King, yep, lots of Stephens/Stevens in the literary world. George R.R. Martin's Song of Ice and Fire series. H.P. Lovecraft stories. Old Pulp Fiction sci-fi and fantasies. Jim Butcher's Dresden Files series. Fantasy Novels in General. Just about any graphic novels published by Vertigo. (I.E. Sandman, Lucifer, Preacher, Hellblazer, etc) Fables graphic novel series.
Neil Gaimen books. Gene Wolfe books.
And many many more.

I like a wide variety of movies, I am a movie junkie, not to be confused with a movie snob, unless it's Will Ferrell or Rob Zombie, fuck those guys.

Banshee Chapter is quite the chilling horror film. Just saw Space Pirate Captain Harlock, and while anime is kind of low on my nerd totem pole, Leiji Matsumoto knew his shit.
Personally I think Django Unchained is one of Quentin Tarantino's finest.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
*Insert clever witticism or generic list here*
I'll get to this later.

Alright, so far, my cat. Seriously, there have been numerous cases where trying to pawn him off on someone else would have made my life far more convenient. That fluff ball is my friend though, and you don't get a pet if you plan on abandoning them when they become an inconvenience.

Side note, I went without coffee for a number of weeks. The world continued it's existence, hell didn't suddenly exist and freeze over, and none of my stuff is broken. That said, having that first cup when I was finally able to acquire some, like my taste buds were all having a goddamn orgasm. I think I made my roommates uncomfortable what with the unholy chorus of moans that issued from my suddenly autonomous and sexually capable tastebuds. I really have to stop reading forbidden tomes of the outer stars before bed.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I have the English translation of the First Edition of Brothers Grimm. It is officially one of, if not the, most precious books I own. Along with a rescued copy of Faust I picked up with a new and snazzy cover made by a wonderful bookbinder I met at a festival. There are other things, politics, video games, dreams, but these are the things I'm thinking about now.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
What is this Friday you speak of?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Ignoring the contradiction of this part of the profile, I'll throw two at you:

I had armpit hair when I was nine. Puberty was strange, but then, it always is... right?

Also:

My Mom read me Stephen King for bedtime, right alongside Berenstein Bears. We watched all sorts of horror movies together as well. Sometimes I'm amazed that I didn't start dying my hair black and using eyeliner once I hit high school.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Cthulhu tells you to?

You know who/what Cthulhu is and want him to run for President in 2016.

You are a geek or are at least geek friendly.

Seriously, the last one is a requirement, if you're not at least geek friendly, best be moving on. This liger ain't changing his stripes.

You need a dance partner, this is not a metaphor, my last attempt at learning social dance was relatively random. My partner wound up being a snob who went on about how my height was ruining her steps, how much she hated the type of dance they were doing, and blah blah blah. Most unpleasant. It seems every time I attempt to learn swing dancing, something comes along an inconveniences these efforts, I would like to rectify that with someone (a very patient someone, I hope) who would be willing to go on this journey, which might lead to a couple of toes being stepped on, with me.
