Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
"and you can solder! what a catch!" - actual quote.
People see me as smart, wickedly funny, and the kind person who
will usually bring cookies. People all think this is out of the
goodness of my heart. I just want the free love. I'm fascinated by
the world and how it operates. I enjoy men who are intelligent,
enjoy discussing ideas, romantic and dorky. It's true. My one true
love is Roy from The IT Crowd.
When given a chance, people enjoy my company. Many are also often
shocked by how very openminded, candid and devious I can be. I am a
very sympathetic listener. You will be amazed at how fascinating
I am constantly surprised that people consider some pursuits
somehow unsexy. I don't get why D&D, a love of game shows or
collecting maps supposedly dooms guys to a virginal life in their
parents' basement. Having interests in life is a good thing.
I am obsessed with Lego minifigs. I will not apologize for this
My path has not been a standard one. I was an electrical apprentice
for a few years (to everyone's dismay). Now, admittedly becoming a
construction worker was not a complete success, but that had more
to do with the social structure of the work than me. But most of my
coworkers came to respect my work ethic, and I did learn skills
that were very unnatural to me. I'm glad I tried skilled labor; I
can still wire up a light fixture faster than anyone I know, and
learned a lot about what I can do if I push myself. I also have put
in time at graduate school, fixing the internet, and working as an
administrative assistant. It's been an interesting journey.
If I'm in a playful mood I am not afraid to make a fool of myself.
My favorite color is red, and I am not above singing in public. I
don't mean karaoke either. I mean in the hallway.
I am tolerant, sympathetic, and a work in progress.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am a contractor at Bing. I am spending time with my kid,
exercising, and experiencing things. After all, what else is there
really? Recent projects include weeding my crap, baking and sewing.
I was taking some classes. Woo human anatomy!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Spelling. Trivia. I am told I am a decent baker. Crosswords. While
I am an adequate video game player, FPS are not my forte. I like
board games but tend to suck at them unless they involve words, or
trivia. :) Coop games (think Pandemic) are my favorites
I used to be able to construct grammatically accurate sentences,
but apparently I hate commas now. I blame texting.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My twisted sense of humor.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I don't like or dislike anything particularly out of the ordinary.
However I am generally openminded and will try most things. I do
have a pretty dark sense of humor. The movie that lightens my mood
is Observe and Report.
I'm fairly open to most movies. I am fine with subtitles. I used to
go to movies just about every weekend, but law school and life got
in the way. Sometime I would like to do SIFF but I've never had the
time or the cash. I am a sucker for comic book adaptations (even
though I usually quibble with non-canon details).
My taste in music isn't particularly unusual. Rock of various
flavors. Recent purchases (yes, I buy music) include fun., Ellie
Goulding and the Clash.
I am not too good for TV. I tend to gravitate towards smart comedy
like Community, Newsradio and Futurama, but I also like sci fi. I
have a particular fondness for English comedy - Red Dwarf, Spaced,
Black Books. I can rattle off every single Dr. Who from William
Hartnell to Matt Smith. And that includes Paul McGann even though
the movie was crap and actively offended me. Seriously. I love me
some Dr. Who. Sylvester McCoy and David Tennant are my favorite
Doctors. Recent shows include House of Cards and Elementary
(Sherlock is superior but Elementary has grown on me).
Lately I've been reading. I am making an active effort to read new
things and stretch my mind a little. I love my Kindle.
I am a reformed comic book nerd. I had a pretty serious addiction
to four-color crack. I had to stop cold turkey because of law
school - both time and money. I still miss the ritual of going down
to my dealer and collecting my box though. Mainstream Marvel and DC
stuff mostly. I have been known to make dark rumblings at
continuity errors at the movies but I am mostly able to let it go.
I like to cook. The Food Network website rocks; most of the recipes
I've tried from there have been very, very good. I make a superb
apple pie, cocoa to die for, and a very mediocre pad thai. Lately
I've been doing a bunch of yeast projects. My croissants are
As far as restaurants, I like the standard Seattle fare of Thai,
Indian and seafood. I prefer authentic Chinese to American Chinese.
Taco vans are the best Mexican. But I'll try most things at least
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
It's amazing what you can do without when it really comes down to
it. I would prefer to not live without my Windows phone (although I
resisted getting a smartphone for the longest time) my iPod, my
Kindle, my laptop, my friends, and the boy. Not in that order.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Everything. I have trouble turning my brain off. I like to
deconstruct things, I like to watch sales techniques. I am rarely
taken in by advertising. I fall for it but I know perfectly well
what they are doing.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
playing Xbox or watching Netflix. After I get home from the gym.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm wildly superstitious. I suspect it is my way to trying to find
patterns in a random universe.
You should message me if

you find any of this compelling, and live within a reasonable
driving distance. Other than that, I'm pretty friendly. :)
While I do have a nine year old child, I am a part time parent, and
in fact you won't even meet him unless things go really, really
well and then not for a long time.
Also, I am not interested in poly at all, I don't have temperament
for it (as so many on this site seem to be interested in it), just
as a disclaimer.
