My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Moved to Portland, OR from northwest Arkansas on Jan. 14, 2015. Doing my damndest to make this place feel like home; so I'm hoping to meet a lot of people to make that be true.

I consider myself to be fairly quiet and reserved, but I open up quickly. I'm a cat lover, but my BFF, Gene, says I'm more of a dog in terms of personality (which is amusing, because while he is a dog lover, he is definitely far more cat-like in personality).

I try to keep laid back and unhurried. Life's short -- I'd like to enjoy it instead of fretting about it.

You should holler at me even if just to say hey. That's a good start.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I build websites and maintain databases for a charity which raises funds for research into multiple sclerosis treatment and provides programs and services for persons living with MS. This lets me work from home, which is great, except that everyone I support is in the Central Time Zone, meaning my alarm is set for 6:30am. :(

I want to publish a video game and I have designs on a JRPG-style one.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Computer programming, mathematics, cooking, singing (maybe?), deflecting salespeople.

[edited by Gene:] Being there for the ones I love whether I agree with their actions or not. Sometimes, in fact, being the only one. Taking friendship as an oath, not a convenience. Staying true and being loyal to what I believe.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My beard. I get random compliments on it all the time. I have been variously referred to as Abraham Lincoln (obvious), Ulysses Grant, and Brigham Young (?!), none of whom I think I look like.

Also, my enormous head. I wonder if I can get a 3D print of my skull?

[edited by Gene:] Usually when people get within 20,000 miles, they think "That planet is awfully close to Earth..."

And now, since August 2013, my wicked neck scar. :3
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
In no particular order! And not necessarily all-inclusive! :D

Books: How to Win Friends and Influence People, Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, anything by Dave Barry, The Sword in the Stone, The Invisible Man, What Do You Care What Other People Think? and everything else Richard Feynman ever wrote, The Three Musketeers, The Hobbit, House of Leaves, Yotsuba&!, others I have likely forgotten to mention. I mostly prefer reading nonfiction to fiction, though.

Shows: Top Gear (UK), Mythbusters, Good Eats, Blackadder, The Venture Bros., Q.I., How It's Made, Haruhi no Suzumiya, Monster, Steins;Gate, LeLouch, Welcome to the NHK, The Adventures of Pete & Pete, Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends, Reboot, Where in the World Is Carmen Sandiego?, Lucky Star, Dirty Jobs, Father Ted, Wakfu, Kill la Kill... others I've probably missed. I've gone a good stretch of time without any TV at all (not worth the fees to me) and thus get most of my media these days from the internet, such as via PBS Idea Channel, SciShow, Crash Course (all of em), and augh so many more. YouTube complains about the size of my subscription list. And that doesn't even count podcasts... Welcome to Night Vale, Freakonomics, Good Job, Brain, Stuff You Should Know, and more.

Music: Flogging Molly, Metallica, The Beatles, Malice Mizer, symphonic and operatic pieces in general, video game pieces in general, Green Day, The Offspring, Pink Floyd, Queen, many Disney tunes, Gorillaz, Blackeyed Peas, Weird Al, Pendulum, System of a Down, Tenacious D, Cake, Cheb Mami, the music of Cirque du Soleil, Counting Crows, Enya, Franz Ferdinand, Hank Williams, Sr., Johnny Cash, Patsy Cline, Nat King Cole, Panic! At the Disco, R.E.M., Red Hot Chili Peppers, Styx, Weezer, plus many, many, many others. Only thing I don't like is country after about 1970.

Food: Everything! Except nattou.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
The Internet
A computer way more powerful than I need
A car
My job -- seriously, the bizarre forces of luck which landed me my current gig are nigh unfathomable; I love what I do and that I get to do it.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Sex (surprise?), the nature of the Universe, Minecraft, music, people generally, persons specifically, the world inside my own head, the world of tomorrow
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Don't usually plan these things, so whatever. Let's go to Hopworks and have some pizza and beer. Or play games at home while drinking wine. :3
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am an arthriticky old man; I have ankylosing spondylitis.

I also have a hole in my spinal cord; a dozen neurosurgeons have no idea why.

Both these things are very well managed.

I also have idiopathic musical hallucinations, constantly. These require no management. Brains and bodies are weird!
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
No restrictions! Message away! Here or on AIM (does anybody but me still use this?) as CheesesFreak.

[edited by Gene:] You should message me if you can accurately discern when Temple Time is. If you cannot, you MUST inform me of this beforehand. When temple time comes around and I start getting the culture, if I leave you in the dirt - hey, that's on you, babe. 8)

[edited by Me:] Knowing when Temple Time is is not a requirement for messaging. Being willing to LEARN when it is IS. 8)

[edited by Me, much later:] This Temple Time thing goes all the way back to 2004. Will I ever remove it? :o
