My self-summary
I'm polite, empathetic, easy-going, a big fan of dogs, less a fan of sports, and I swear I'll finish that novel someday!

I can't not be nice to other people. It's not a selfless thing -- the thought of successfully brightening someone's day helps my own mood. 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....

These days, if I'm not working I'm 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.

Now and then I also take a stab at writing music -- which is always a challenge if you don't know how to read music. Not impossible, but a challenge. And often the end product is something that I'll listen to over and over.

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.

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 the local golf course -- a job that would be infinitely easier if I ever managed to learn some golf.
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
According to real life people that I didn't just imagine, my first impression always falls into one of three categories:
a) friendly and charming,
b) very polite, or
c) unnervingly quiet.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books:
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

TV Shows:
(Except for "The Daily Show", I don't keep current with TV. I tend to binge via Netflix instead.)
The Daily Show; The Big Bang Theory; Jeeves & Wooster; Avatar: The Last Airbender; Firefly; Spaced; The Simpsons; MST3K

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

Music:
(70-80% of my collection is film scores and soundtracks. The rest is mostly Classical and showtunes.)
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.:
City of Heroes (while it lasted); Cracked.com; green tea; coconut; Not Always Right; Sudoku; Japanese food (especially anpan); The Sims 3; SWTOR
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'm not a robot. Seriously.

Also, I actually kinda liked The Phantom Menace.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 21–29
  • 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."

Maybe you're a fan of witty comedies or escapist epic fantasies.

Maybe you're keen to try your hand at an Origami rabbit.

Maybe you prefer John Williams' 90s scores to his more recent work, or are surprised more people aren't aware of David Arnold.

If I'm outside your time zone, maybe you'd like a friendly pen-pal.

If you like and/or have dogs, maybe you'd like to join me and a rather goofy border collie for a stroll. (Otherwise, she'll just be a "bored-er" collie....)

... and maybe you'll have to put up with occasional bad puns.
