Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
What's to say? I'm a man. I'm more complex than the stereotype, but
low maintenance enough. I prefer intellectual pursuits and good
company. I wear a real watch, shave with a real razor(and brush!),
and wear a real hat. I like to dress like my grandfather, when I
I work with computers, did my college coursework in sociology, and
have an analytical mind. I enjoy puzzles and systems.
I play video games, and design(and test) systems recreationally,
enjoy reading, and the study of people.
I'm not an underwear model, unless you're talking about flannel
underwear that comes with a trap door in it.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Doing the IT thing. Have you tried turning it off, and then on
I draw and paint, but I'm lousy at both. I do it because I like it,
and to hell with the rest. I noticed that OKC says I'm "Less
Artistic". I think it means I am "Less Like That Annoying Skinny
Guy In The Stupid Beret And Black Clothes". I hate that guy.
I read. It's a habit I've been in since I was a wee sprout.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making folks laugh. Taking tests. Public speaking. Cooking.
Driving. Identifying wine by taste.
Apparently, I can tell stories well.

D. I used to be an absolute foodie. Now, my menu has become pretty
limited. I love spices and intense flavors, and am pretty
egalitarian with the breadth of my cuisine choices.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Brain, spinal cord, heart, lungs, liver... wait, are we talking
about stuff? Okay, then.
Food. Good food. I love to cook, and I love to share the labors of
well cooked food with pride. Guess that makes me a foodie.
Games. Yep, those fun intellectual exercisers. Video games, RPGs,
