My self-summary
Greeting, salutations, and hello!

So who am I?
Well, I have reached a point in my life where I have a stable career, good friends and I have a good plan for the future. But I am missing someone to explore that future with.
I like to smile and someone with a good sense of humor is a must. I can find the silver lining is almost any situation, and it makes me feel better knowing that even after something terrible happened, I can still smile about it.

Avid reader, mostly science fiction or fantasy, with an odd mix of philosophy thrown in every once and a while.
Own one and a half cats, who will probably not like you right away. They were originally rescue animals and take a fair amount of time and coaxing to come out when someone new is over. I am planning on getting a puppy as soon as I have a house with a nice yard. So if you are not a pet person, we likely wouldn't be a good match.

I play a myriad of card, board, and assorted other tabletop games every week with a small group of friends. Other than that I enjoy biking around town and trying to find someone willing to go canoeing or kayaking on the Huron with me. Well all that during the summer anyway, winter not so much with the biking and canoeing. Normally I would say something about going skiing during the winter, but didn't get to do much this year after breaking my leg. I am looking forward to skiing again next year, but after the winter we just had I am content to wait a bit on snow again.

You can also find me experimenting with cooking different foods, often spicy, but normally something more exotic and out of the ordinary. Occasionally the recipes do not work out as intended, and I am left wondering why I ever thought that this recipe was a good idea.
I do also enjoy cooking non-spicy foods, which I am sure my taste buds are thankful for. While I am good at cooking, I am still trying to get the hang of this baking deal. I have no idea why I find cooking so easy, and yet I am completely flummoxed when it comes to baking cakes, tarts or other assorted pastries.

I follow the English Premier League, with the limited broadcasting here in the states, it can be a challenge to actually watch the games. Never miss the World Cup.
What I’m doing with my life
Currently I am a manager in customer service and technical support for a large telecommunications company. With an eye on perhaps transitioning into a full-time training role, or continuing up the corporate ladder. I love the training work that I do right now, working with newer people and helping to teach them, then watching as they grow and succeed. It is extremely rewarding on a personal level.
My work schedule can be pretty crazy, and flexible, but I really like the company I work for and see myself growing within for many years to come.
Last year I started to put more of a focus on the gym and living healthier. Lost 30lbs and I plan continuing to work toward my goal of returning to my soccer shape. Broken leg has sidelined the gym time, but I plan on going back as soon as I am cleared to.
As a side project/hobby I am also working with a friend to design our own customizable card game.
Currently nursing a dislocated ankle and fractured(read: shattered) Fibula back to health as mentioned above. Moral of the story, don't hit a hunk of ice sledding at full speed. Thankfully done with the cast and working on rehab now, going well so far. Don't think I will make it back in time for spring league soccer, but summer or fall I will be out there.
I’m really good at
Problem solving. I love the challenge and I am good at coming up with creative solutions to problems.
Telling funny stories. I like making people smile, and I am fortunate to have enough oddball experiences I can look back on and laugh.
Cooking(but not baking). Seriously, baking is hard and I am terrible at it.
Creating detailed shopping lists, then leaving them at home when I go to the store.
The first things people usually notice about me
I am tall. So yeah, that pretty much gets noticed first. Otherwise, I am told that people notice my eyes. Really not sure why, I mean they are pretty much your basic brown colored eyes. Something to do with eyelashes. It is all very confusing to me.

Or perhaps it is that my smile is uneven. A fedora is actually to blame for that. Well a fedora and a pair of Converse anyway.
No, I wasn't wearing the fedora, or the Converse either.
But it is a funny story now that I look back on it.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Hard to pick just a couple authors or books from all that I like to read, but here goes. Brandon Sanderson, Timothy Zahn, Robert Jordan, Terry Pratchet, and Isaac Asimov. Discworld, Ender's Game, Dune, Wheel of Time, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Red Dwarf, and Catch 22.
Currently reading the Dresden Files series.
For movies and shows, I don't watch a lot of television but I do have some favorites. Princess Bride, Crash, American Beauty, Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog, and Original Star Wars trilogy. Firefly, Castle, Dr. Who, Sherlock, and Top Gear. I have a soft spot for Pixar style animated movies and Wreck it Ralph is my current favorite there. (Yes, I know its Disney, and not Pixar)
In the non-TV sense of shows, Waiting for Godot is my favorite play. My broken leg stopped me from seeing it on Broadway with Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen and made me extremely sad.

Favorite piece of music is Gabriel's Oboe by Ennio Morricone, but for everyday listening I like, in no particular order, Breaking Benjamin, Bleeker Ridge, Seether, Imagine Dragons, Red Elvises, Thirteen Senses, Hurts, Simon and Garfunkel, Gin Blossoms, and Smashmouth.
I generally like good spicy food, and enjoy cooking it too. Otherwise, sushi, Caesar salads, Thai and Korean foods are tasty. I am not very picky about foods, and will try just about anything once. Sometimes to my detriment, which is why I can safely say never again to oysters.
Which is a quite embarrassing story that my grandfather never gets tired of telling...
The six things I could never do without
Friends and family
My car
My computer and the Internet
Good tea.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How much better life would be if I had one of those refrigerators that dispense ice cubes. Well, not really. Mostly I only think about that when I run out of ice.

What path my life and career will take in the future, and buying a house next summer when my lease expires. Seriously, putting down 20k cash, then still being over a hundred thousand dollars in debt is a scary thought. It is also exciting, and even though I am a year out from my plans of a house, I can still spend hours looking at homes for sale online.

But seriously, that fridge will be mine one day.
On a typical Friday night I am
Working! Sad but true, my schedule has me working Friday evenings until at least mid June right now.
If somehow I have the Friday off, then I would be out with friends, generally being a nerd. We do cookouts, pencil and paper RPGs, different card and board games, paint tiny figures, and whatever else seems interesting at the time.
If not out with friends, I am back at home reading, goofing off on my computer, or trying to figure out why my cat feels the need to sleep on every bit of clothing I don't have in the dresser.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I tend to read this question as the most embarrassing thing you would admit to on the internet.
I suppose this depends on who I am admitting it to. I mean, if I tell you that I've never played Portal and you don't know what I am talking about, well that just defeats the whole purpose.

I will admit that I still have a stuffed panther from when I was 4. When he was brand new, I brushed his paw against a freshly painted white wall, you can still see a little of the paint there.
I cried for a week over that as a kid.

Not sure which of those two is worse really.

And no, I have never played Portal.

You should message me if
You should message me if you think that we would get along, or if you want to tell a funny story.
You should message me if you are not ashamed of your imperfections, or if you have some amazing or spicy recipe that I need to be made aware of.

Above all else, you should message me if you like to smile.
