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
I try to keep laid back and unhurried. Life's short -- I'd like to
enjoy it instead of fretting about it.
You should hollar at me just to say hey. Yeah, that's the best path
for us both to take.
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.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
[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, I have a badass fedora for my hugeass head.
[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 incredibly wicked neck scar. :3

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
A computer way more powerful than I need
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.
My music collection
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 and God, Minecraft, the
world inside my own head, the world of tomorrow, the world of
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. :3
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have spinal cord cysts and ankylosing spondylitis. I'm an
arthriticky old man. :c

No restrictions! Message away! Here or on AIM as
[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.
[edited by Me:] Knowing when Temple Time is is not a requirement
for messaging. Being willing to LEARN when it is IS. 8)
