I had a friend who summed me up the best way about 17 years ago. He told me that when a friend of his ask what I'm like he said that "You don't really describe Gord, you kind of experience him"
So, what does that mean? I'm somewhere between a nerd and a gameshow host. I've got all of the advantages of being a nerd (I can play Settlers of Catan, quote Stargate and repair your computer all at the same time) without all of the bizarre social awkwardness that comes with it. I'm outgoing, yet I like my privacy. I value people who don't just blythely go through life accepting anything that is fed to them. I would rather fix something than have it fixed for me.
I take pride in making people laugh. I also take pride in getting people to think.
I'd like to believe that I'm well informed. Following the blood sport of US politics is a passive hobby of mine.
I'm an Atheist. If you seriously think that the world is 4000-6000 years old and the Dinosaur bones were put there by the devil to test your faith, keep on clickin' to the next profile there sparky. Just keeeeeep moving. (Well, then again, if you seriously want to debate me about religeon and science, sure I'm game. Be warned, I'm well prepared...)
I'm polite, but I have have a very blue sense of humour and I know how to use it.
I like to talk, and I like to listen.
Well, thats all I got for now. I'll fill in more after I wake in the middle of the night in an existential quandary full of loathing and self doubt and wracked with the pain and isolation of my pitiful meaningless exisitence.....
