My self-summary
I suppose I should update this once in a while...

I am an odd individual, unfortunately I am not wealthy enough to qualify as eccentric, though I have not yet found a specific dollar amount that is the demarcation line, so I may well be.

For example, I'm equally split between being an outdoorsy type, spending time outdoors be it rustic areas or exploring a city. Some days I enjoy it spending time indoors enjoying other pursuits, either totally geeking out on the computer, enjoying movies, working on my art, some crazy project, or sitting taking notes from a pile of books. (I really dig history - see below).

I enjoy both history and current events, especially discussion thereof. I love food and cooking, and consider myself a bit of an epicurean.

Ok, I am fond of adult beverages, though I am not one to drink to excess by any means. I really enjoy sampling all the different styles of beer, ale, mead, and spirits, "such wondrous variety!"

Oh if I did not mention I am a geek, I like science fiction and fantasy, either in books, TV or movies. I enjoy electronic games, especially FPS style games or the like. I also enjoy "old-fashion" RPG games with friends.

I am a bit old fashioned, I open doors for people, take off my hat indoors, and display general courtesy. I have even had some people become "offended" by these behaviors, which astounds me. To me it is right and proper, and is a sign of respect and consideration of a person, not a dismissal that they are incapable or lesser in any way.

I am always looking for some new friends to socialize with; I enjoy meeting new and interesting people and sharing time with them. I am also always on the lookout for fun drinking partners who are up for going out and hitting a place with a decent selection and trying new drinks as well as old favorites.
What I’m doing with my life
Mainly being a wage slave currently, but happily I telecommute. Other than that I get tied up with working on my hobbies and activities.
I’m really good at
Cooking - Specifically meat, soup, stew, and bread.

Creative Construction - Give me odd bits of metal and lumber and I can make most anything.

Making people laugh, sometimes it is not even at my own expense, imagine that.

Holding educated conversations about history, science, theology and other assorted trivia.
The first things people usually notice about me
Typically my goatee is the first thing noticed, a close second would be my eyes, they are an unusual color.

Most people get the impression I am very stoic, I am a bit reserved, but most of the time it is saving up for a good one-liner.

Oh, and I have been told I look good in tights.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Terry Pratchett, outstanding author.
Literary classics from around the world
The romance sagas and the collected stories of the men who were men. (think 14th century mafia)

Dark Comedy, Action, Adventure, and Sci-fi. It is a very long list,

TV: (when I get around to seeing it)
Rome, Deadwood, True Blood, Burn Notice, Royal Pains, Blacklist, yay netflix!

My music collection is way eclectic, everything from AC/DC to Japanese Imperial court music... Odd eh?
The six things I could never do without
1. My watch (I just feel naked without one)
2. My cellphone
3. Coca-Cola
4. My computer and internet.
5. My car
6. This is a state secret.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Projects, which one to do next, how to go about it, etc.

At least 10 minutes a day, absolutely nothing... I make a point of it.
On a typical Friday night I am
Either trying to enjoy spending it with friends, getting ready for the weekend, or heading to a tavern I like.... they have awesome soup and sandwiches as well as drinks.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Wow, ummm... I am a sucker for cute fuzzy animals.
You should message me if
You like history, going to events, getting together to cook or drink (or both!), you have a dark or sarcastic streak, a sense of humor, a keen wit, your seeking a guy who can be equally a gentleman and a scoundrel. In short I'm looking for a fun-loving, unabashed/unapologetic woman who is sure of herself as a friend and possibly more.
