My self-summary
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 Lemon?

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' sausage party.
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 dreamboat.

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
Math.
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?
