Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Currently undergoing renovation. Don't mind me, pardon our dust...

Mellow geeky nerd seeks similar for geeky nerdiness, social outings, antisocial nights in (why is inning not a non-sports term?), esoteric conversations and occasional platonic (and perhaps occasionally non-platonic) intimate human contact.

Check the questions if you want to rate our compatibility. And yes, you can send me a message about any of them, even the ones with which you disagree.

I'm the friend you come to when you need to spell a word, or find the answer to an obscure crossword clue.

if you need the lid off of something, or something's on the top shelf. Think Hank McCoy, if Beast wasn't allowed to have his trademark blue hair due to employer policies. :/

I'm really BAD at keeping my house as clean as I'd like it. It's clean enough for visitors, I'm not an unfixable slob, but it doesn't look nice unless I've had help tidying up recently. Were I not opposed to the use of emoticons outside of the instant messaging context, I'd have a Frown here. Instead, imagine me sighing.

Stuff I like....

I'm a big Neil Gaiman fan, own most of the Sandman books, and several of his prose works as well. I finally read The Ocean at the End of the Lane. I was saving it for a special day, and a rainy day, on the job, where reading is finally permitted, is pretty special.
I adore Warren Ellis, he's radically prolific, and a mad bastard to boot.
Randy Milholland makes an amazing webcomic called Something*Positive, you should check it out if you haven't already.

Actually, I read about 3-4 dozen webcomics on a fluctuating basis. If you have a cool one, send me a link, preferably to one that's generally considered to have the broadest appeal, or you think will appeal to me in particular.

The last few books I read include:
Heinlein's Stranger in a Strange Land
Deborah Harkness' A Discovery of Witches, and plan to get around to the sequels
The Temeraire series by Naomi Novik
Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell by Susanna Clarke
The Wise Man's Fear by Patrick Rothfuss
I'm reading Heinlein's Stranger in a Strange Land, but I have a crappy epub scan, and it is chock full of sooo many typos.
I TRIED to read Fledgling by Octavia Butler, but I couldn't get through it.

If you printed off my 'have-read' list in size 2 font, on rice paper, and trimmed off all the excess, leaving no margin, you could choke a whale with it. If you printed off my 'to-read' list, you could use it for the whale's burial shroud, assuming you were going to have a funeral for it.

comic books/graphic novels of no particular persuasion. I am addicted to reading superhero comics like I'm majoring in it. I welcome non-superhero comics for that very reason.

Movies... I have several favorites, ones I can watch again and again. I don't know anyone who can sit through them with me, though. Hudson Hawk (with Willis), Oscar (with Stallone), Monty Python and the Holy Grail. I'm a Pixar fan through and through, I'll watch any of them with you, any time. Generally speaking, I feel like most CGI movies are basically good, and I suspect that this is so because they have to spend sooo much money making them that they just CAN'T afford to do a crap script. Wreck-It Ralph is one of my favorites. I like Vampire movies, and the campiest one I can think of right off the top of my head is called Blood and Donuts. Canadian, obviously a B-movie, it's ludicrous with how bad it is, and yet I can't... look... away!

I am A Regular Frankie Fan, and I dress like Eddie every month at the Irving.

NO, HAN DID NOT SHOOT 'FIRST.' You have to have a second shot to have a first shot.

There are several movies and TV shows I've inherited a love of from my parents; mostly BBC goodies and gonzo animation on my dad's side - Ralph Bakshi's Wizards, The Duchess of Duke Street, I, Claudius, etc. And mostly musicals on my mom's side - Fiddler on the Roof, Paint Your Wagon, On a Clear Day You Can See Forever, West Side Story... things like that.

As far as shows go, I'm an 80's kid. So, rewatching TransFormers, G.I. Joe, The Real Ghostbusters, and many others is how I genuinely enjoy spending time. Which is NOT to say that I won't jeer through the cheese, but I'll almost immediately follow it up with some redonkulously convoluted 33rd degree nerdcore lore hypothesis/apology for what I just shamelessly bashed.

My mom gave me Doctor Who, though, I'll put that out there.
And they both taught me to love Star Trek, which I took and ran with, but then Rick Berman soured me on it extensively.

I listen to many different kinds of music. I like ancient music, instrumentals, a capella, and stuff that generally gets labelled world music. I love Rock and Roll in many flavors. I didn't like Rap for a long time, but I got over it. Still have some hang-ups about Opera, though.

I am of Sicilian descent, so that means I do like Italian food. But I'm unapologetically nitpicky about food labeled as Italian which is actually something... other. I'm pretty safe with most pizzas, though.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Probably in order of descending importance, Air, Water, Food, Clothing, Shelter and a toss-up between lights and plumbing.

And now for the non-sarcastic answers

Creature Comforts/Civilization. Some people camp, some don't. I have discovered the hard way that I'm a bit of a Don't, all things considered. I like having lights after dark, and a toilet on which I can ponder LtUE (bonus points if you know that one) without 'gettin awl et up bah skeeters'. We spent thousands of years getting out of trees and caves, putting up good, solid, reliable shelters which keep us cool in the summer, warm in the winter and dry in the rainy season, and what do we do? Leave it all on the weekends to go back to what we spent all that time getting away from. We are crazy. But who knows, maybe I did the camping thing all wrong.

Information Glut, in the guises of Books, Graphic Novels, Movies and... The Internet. Yes, the webbertron. It lets me meet you, keeps families more closely connected, speeds up bureaucracy. It brings us entertainment, education, information... and their children edutainment and infotainment. And, recent commercials notwithstanding, I think we'll be okay on the 'search overload' thing.

My family. I've tried living without them, it's a pain in the ass and lonely to boot. If you have a family that gets you, cherish them.

Human Contact. I used to have my pets on here, but they're gone now, and I didn't appreciate at the time how much I relied upon their presence and affection. My communication paradigm is very tactile in nature, and lacking that, I find myself feeling disconnected and adrift, emotionally. Not being ready to adopt again, I prefer to have companions whom I don't have to walk, feed, or feel less-than-ideally-hygienic about kissing.

My friends and intimates. These are all pretty big things, I think you'll agree, but friends and loved ones are those who make the world WORTH connecting to. I would spend more time with my friends, if we didn't all keep such disparate schedules, and I like to think I could satisfy several lovers, but, again, I'm picky.

Also:

It makes me grit my teeth to admit it, but my cellphone. I had lived for a long time with the notion that it's little more than a lowjack disguised as a convenience. But now the mask has become the face, regardless of what's beneath the surface. I still have paranoid thoughts about it, but it's a handy little factotum.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Space, the Final Frontier. Honestly. I know we'd have to seriously get our act together, but I see real potential out there. And furthermore, 100% of all humanity is sitting in this one basket, just waiting for a rock to fall out of the sky and ruin everything. What say we spread out, JUST A LITTLE BIT, hmm?

Environmental stuff. I'm somewhere between 'ponder' and 'fret over' with this one. I'm using CFLs, I'm shopping with reusable bags, I triple-R the big three, and I read articles about how we could be doing things better and bemoan the fact that I can't throw a big pot of money at some of these ideas.

Nerddom. Fantasy and Sci-fi. I love that stuff. Star Trek, Eureka, Dresden Files, RPGs... Ask me about these, tell me about yours.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Doing whatever. If you have a better idea than whatever I'm doing, let's do that instead. I've taken up an interest in Swing Dancing lately, and I'm looking to get back into an Industrial/goth night, if anyone knows a good one. Show me a party, and I will take a gander.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

I will find a way to laugh at your baby's funeral. And you'll hate
me for it, especially if I make you laugh too.

I'm polyamorous and new to it, so I'm still learning the ropes vis
a vis communication, et al.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You want to. Or if you are bored. Or if you are a Suicide Girl-type girl. Or possibly looking to unload some old roleplaying books. Caveat Scriptor; I'm not on here every day. I'll get back to you when I get back to you. But I check my inbox for letters that don't have the little 'replied' arrow on them fairly regularly. Say, weekly?
