Nerd, amateur cinephile, pirate (?).
I'm a self-supporting 30-something year old trying to make my way through this crazy world. If you are mature but still enjoy being goofy and having fun, then we'll probably get along just fine. I love eating meat, so if you're against that then we probably shouldn't have dinner together. I'm also a proponent of organic and homegrown food.
In general, I agree with OKCupid's personality assessment of me.
What I’m doing with my life
I work mornings through the early afternoon, typically just on weekdays, which leaves me with a lot of flexible time in the evenings and on weekends to do whatever I want.
I also have a habit of starting new and diverse projects, which in turn means picking up many random hobbies. Occasionally I even finish one of them, like the new computer I just built.
I’m really good at
Starting new projects! Finishing them... not so much.
I have spent the last 20 years or so working in technology so that
probably tops my list in expertise. Hardware, software, whatever...
just give me a few minutes to brush up on my coding and I'm good to
Reverse-engineering, cross-engineering, and over-engineering.
Engineering, in general.
The first things people usually notice about me
Physically, my hair, my eyes? Meta-physically, that I make a lot of
sense for not making much sense at all.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Shows: Dr. Who, Castle, Sherlock, Burn Notice, It's Always Sunny, Star Trek (TOS, TNG, Enterprise, and Voyager, but not that DS9 crap), Archer, Bob's Burgers, Vikings, Suits, House of Cards (US), Rake (Australia and US), Californication
Music: Pandora Shuffle (Mornings - John Butler Trio/Rusted Root/Johnny Cash/Fleetwood Mac, Work - Daft Punk/Lindsey Stirling/Escala/David Garrett, Nights/Weekends - NIN/The Prodigy/Marilyn Manson/Covenant)
Food: Spicy anything -- like dripping sweat spicy. Also, just about anything stuffed with cheese. Habanero poppers? Yes, please. And bacon, mmm... bacon.
The six things I could never do without
"Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most" -- Mark
I spend a lot of time thinking about
... simple solutions to complex problems, complex solutions to simple problems, and inevitable problems with any solution.
... the Kobayashi Maru.
On a typical Friday night I am
Having a beer with my neighbors and catching up on Netflix or any
episodes I missed over the week.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I've messed with Texas and I'd do it again.
I'm not nearly as cynical as I come across most of the time.
You should message me if
Message me if you'd like a chat a bit and then grab a bite or drink sometime.
