Oh boy, uhhh... Huge nerd (viz. comic books, computers, games
[video and, to a lesser extent, tabletop/board], sci-fi, English
grammar [formal and vernacular], science, math, I could keep
going...), very smart, very funny, married (but not like, super
married; she's got a couple boyfriends), and a genuinely nice guy.
But not like, okcupid, fedora-wearing, internet nice guy, where I
buy someone dinner and then bitch about "friend zones" or some
shit; actual nice guy, where I help someone push their stalled car
out of an intersection because I've run out of gas before, and I
actually just really like helping people.
What I’m doing with my life
Professionally: working a job that's often frustrating, but also
often incredibly satisfying, and oh god have I turned into Liz
Personally: being married to the best lady I could have possibly
married, taking care of three cats, and having no interest in kids.
Also, wanting to meet some new people, primarily (to be frank)
people without Y chromosomes, because I spend a lot of time at
work, in the software industry, and it tends to be a big ol'
I’m really good at
Explaining things I know.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm quite tall.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I mostly read sci-fi (and technical programming shit): my favorites
are probably Alastair Reynolds and Neal Stephenson, and I have been
a die-hard Star Wars nerd for probably 15 years now. Yes, even
through the prequels. (I have my reasons; they are surprisingly
personal.) Oh, and for technical programming shit, I actually
really love my 4th Edition The C# Programming Language
with commentary from my programming hero, Eric Lippert. He is a
TV: 30 Rock (what am I going to do now, oh god), Raising
Hope, and Better Off Ted are all great.
Movies: my wife used to work at a movie theater, and could get us
both in for free, so we watched a loooooot of movies that summer. I
guess my point is I just love movies; I can't pick one or two
favorites. Think nerdy (apropos of above) and also stuff that's
really funny when you're drunk (viz. Anchorman, Super Troopers,
Idle Hands, Fired Up).
Music: a lot of stuff with absolutely no consistent theme.
Food: I can't even begin to address my food situation. Let's say
"remarkably annoyed vegetarian" and leave it at that until you get
a chance to ask me to elaborate.
The six things I could never do without
In no particular order: books, my voice, the English language (I
really do love it), my wife, cats, and my sister.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
On a typical Friday night I am
Unwinding from a long week at work.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Sometimes I really really miss my mom.
You should message me if
You want to. Really, what else am I going to put here?
