My self-summary
I'm polite, empathetic, and easy-going, and I swear I'll finish that novel someday!

I can't not be nice to other people. I imagine being rude and impatient would really save time, but it's just easier to be polite. Probably healthier, too, in the long run. And so I hold doors open for people. I ask the bank teller how their day is going. I hang back a second so that waiting car can pull into traffic safely. And I never cuss where others can hear me. Well... okay, if I'm really ticked I'll whip out the only German word I know....

When I'm not out there bringing paltry bits of sunshine to random strangers, I'm probably at home writing. Or trying to write, I should say. I've been working on a handful of novels for years, but progress is painfully slow.

Music is another key interest of mine. I'm always listening to something, or whistling, or humming. Sometimes I even try writing it myself -- which is always a challenge if you don't know how to read music. Not impossible, but a challenge. And since the end product is something that I'll listen to over and over... yeah, there are worse ways to kill some time.

I could never decide whether I prefer cats or dogs. Dogs are generally more fun to socialize with, but cats are so delightfully weird. Dogs are easier to decipher, but cats walk that fine line between aloof dignity and utter lunacy. I dunno....

I'm not religious, but I'm not an atheist either. There may well be a universal force greater than our comprehension, but who am I to assume I know what that is? Until I see empirical evidence one way or the other, I'll try to keep my mind open. That said, I believe that most major religions today are more about politics than faith.

I've never been big on sports. I have no problem with the concept, I just never found them entertaining. On the other hand, since I come from a family of longtime SF Giants fans... go Giants!

I'm not an adventurous person, and my comfort zone will never include clubbing or wild parties. A quiet night at home or out with a few friends will do just fine, thank you.

I can't stand cigarette smoke. I don't know how to relate to heavy drinkers, but I have no problems with a little now and then. I don't approve of drug use, but I could possibly tolerate marijuana as long as it's not a major problem and you respect my choice to leave it alone.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm currently learning the ins and outs of the San Francisco voice-over industry. While still a fair distance from being a bankable performer, I hope to eventually break into commercials or character work.

Meanwhile, bills are paid by a pair of part-time jobs.
I’m really good at
... paraphrasing.
... solving mechanical puzzles, like disassembling a bike wheel, untying knots, or Origami.
... spelling and grammar. I don't correct other people, but I'm careful to follow the rules myself. Except that I use fragment sentences a lot. But that's my style. So there.
... linking actors and movies together in my head. (e.g. "Road to Morocco" and "The Hobbit": "Road to Morocco" stars Bing Crosby, who was in "White Christmas" with Danny Kaye, who was in "The Court Jester" with Angela Lansbury, who was in "Anastasia" with Kelsey Grammer, who was in "X-Men 3" with Ian McKellan from "The Hobbit")
The first things people usually notice about me
For first impressions, apparently I'm either:
a) friendly and charming,
b) very polite, or
c) unnervingly quiet.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

the Discworld series (esp. Witches Abroad and Wee Free Men); Harry Potter; Sherlock Holmes; Ender's Game; The Hobbit (but not The Lord of the Rings); the Fall of Ile-Rien trilogy

Films:
Road to Morocco; Marvel's The Avengers; How to Train Your Dragon; The King's Speech; Keeping Mum; The Music Man

How to Train Your Dragon; Kung Fu Panda 2; The Last Airbender; John Powell; Princess Mononoke; John Williams; James Newton Howard; JS Bach; Alan Menken

I often listen to music I wrote myself, as well.

Misc.:

The six things I could never do without
-Technology: esp. my computer, my iPhone, iTunes, and the Internet
-Family: my family is supportive and a huge part of my life. I can't imagine not being around family.
-Civilization: I would never survive in the wild, nor would I last longer than five minutes when the zombie/robot/ape uprising begins. I make no apologies for this.
-The drive to be creative: as frustrating as frequent writer's block can be, a resignation to just being an immobile sponge would be a lot worse.
-People: as shy and awkward as I am, it's comforting just to have others around. A kind of "social ambience", you could say.
-Sixth thing... I dunno. Lists, I guess.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
... how long it's been since I've written anything interesting.
... ways to find/impress a VO talent agent.
... how I'll definitely see Scotland someday.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I grew up with a very tight comfort zone -- something I'm trying to break out of. Making friends was always hard for me. Because of that, I'm... well, not exactly anti-social. More like socially-inexperienced. Don't get me wrong: I do care about people, and I'm very pleasant to be around. But making that long-term emotional connection is a challenge.

As for admitting something fun: I actually kinda liked The Phantom Menace.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 21–28
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
The clichéd answer being, "If you want to."

Any amount of nerdiness/geekiness is a big plus.

It would help if you know the difference between their / there / they're.

Alternatively, if you're local to me and have a dog, I happen to know a very bored border collie in need of exercise....
