Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Who am I?
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
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.....

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm temporarily trying out the unemployed life. Don't get me wrong,
I'm hardly a drifter, grifter or job flake. My previous job came to
a close, and I'm happy to spend a bit of time to get my life in
I try to get out to karaoke. I also like to go to the occasional
I'm contemplating getting into stand up comedy. I hear there is
great money in being a transient comic.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm really good at fixing things, making things, etc. I love to get
down and dirty. I would rather take something broken and bring new
life to it than just run out and buy something new. Except
underwear, I have limits.
I'm really good at making people laugh. If there is a chuckle to be
found somewhere in there, I'll find it.
I've been told I'm a very good singer.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My red hair. Also my personality, come to think of it. Also how
humble I am. So very humble. Like, I'm the best at being humble.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
While I tend not to read "books", I read an enormous amount of news
and online media.

You get the idea.

- I've watched 30-40 movies this year, so, ermmmm
I'm now recovering from the strangest problem in life. For years it
was very difficult for me to eat vegetables. I've been slowing
poisoning myself with greens and I've developed the tolerance for
them again. So my favourite things to eat are usually crunch salady
things smothered in some cholesterol-death dressing. MmMmmmmmm...
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I think this list is much easier than most people think, in order
1. Oxygen. Asphyxiation isn't much fun.
2. Water (I had food here, but apparently we'll die of dehydration
pretty dang quick)
5. Moderately temperate environment that doesn't harm me.
6. Protection from predatory species. (Bears, Cougars,
As for things in my life I couldn't do without: (In no particular
1. Something to "do". (I'm easily bored)
2. Something to sing.
3. Stimulating conversation with someone who is able to keep
4. Something to fix.
5. Someone to keep me "company" You know.. That kind of
6. Freedom to be who I am.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
how the things that people think are good ideas are really stupid,
if you consider all of the consequences.
Aside from that, I think about many things... Yes... Things... You
