I don't really know how to lie or boast in order to make myself seem cooler or more interesting than I actually am. Which seems like the thing to do in online dating.
I have a scar on my forehead. Did I get it:
1) In a knife fight while saving a puppy from a burning building;
2) From a wizard trying to kill me when I was a baby; or
3) Running into a door when I was 3.
Ok, I lied. I'm great at boasting.
I didn't see snow until I was like, 24, so every winter when it snows I'm like a child.
There I go again.
Sometimes I write...a lot. But mostly to stem my oncoming insanity. I sorta dream of becoming a hermit in the woods, writing of the madness that envelopes me. I don't consider myself that great of a writer, but it's kinda fun.
Making jokes that only I think are funny...My profile is filled with them. Don't let that make you think I don't take this seriously! Woo online dating!
Graphic Novels: The Sandman, Maus, Watchmen, Ex Machina, Y: The Last Man, Runaways. (See a trend with those last three? If you do, send me a message right now because you are amazing.) These are all magnificent books. Just finished Locke & Key and the ending almost made me cry. Something I don't think a book has ever done before.
Currently reading: The Walking Dead, Saga, Fables, Deadpool, 100 Bullets, Ms. Marvel. Some other random books I bought.
Movies: So many I can barely remember them all. It's rare that I'll actually dislike a movie. But here are some good-uns. Pan's Labyrinth, Eternal Sunshine, In Bruges, Children of Men, I dig the Star Wars movies, Rian Johnson movies are great, as are most Coen Brothers movies. Also Edgar Wright movies. So many. I see movies quite regularly...A lot of times alone...cause I'm awesome.
TV Shows: I probably enjoy too many excellent TV shows.
Music: Loudon Wainwright III and Tom Waits are my top two. I would say my two favorite genres are the Blues and Irish rock/folk.
My iPhone has music from both The Carter Family and NoFX...let that tell you what it will.
Also, fuck Maslow. Who does he think he is?
How many random references and/or big words I can throw out to make people think I'm smart.
How come Friday night isn't just called Frinight? Mic drop!
My cat is named after a character from Buffy the Vampire Slayer. See? I told you I don't know how to lie...because that definitely should be replaced with one.
I enjoy video games...yeah. I tell myself it's mostly as a way to hang out with a couple good friends that don't live in New York, but that's just rationalization. Video games are fun. Barcade is a very fun place.
I'm honestly terrible at sending messages. I refuse to use anything scripted. Half the time I just say stupid shit, and the other half I say inane shit. But that's just who I am. Stupid and inane.
If you want to go out and do something...comedy clubs are fun. I want to start playing pool again, but it's just too expensive to go alone, haha. I want to start going to shows and such again as well, but most of my friends aren't really into that. Also if you'd be interested in Comic Conventions or going to PAX East with me, that'd be rad. Also baseball or basketball games (The US Open too!). Look, basically I find enjoyment in everything...it's actually a bad thing at times because I can't really focus on one hobby.
Also...please please please know the difference between various homonyms and homophones. And hominids, but that's really for your own sake more than anything.
Did I mention I make awful jokes?
