Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a lifelong nerd and geek, and now I get to be one
professionally as a librarian. My hobbies include cannibalism,
smoking crack and worshiping the devil.
No, wait...take two: My interests include puzzles & games,
comic books, and trivia. I also like movies, travel and good
My former life includes time spent as a teacher, a student career
as a theater major, professional careers as writer, editor, and
pizza dude. The current score is one marriage, one divorce, no
children, no hits, two errors-touchdown! I enjoy science fiction
and science fact, animation and mixing metaphors.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Time for a much needed update! I've been in Gainesville for a few
years now. I'm a research librarian, aspiring mad scientist, and I
love my current job.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
And I make a great baked mac n cheese.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I look like a displaced mountain man, which, to some extent, I am.
(And the beard stays.)
I should say that I have one hand, but it's amazing how few people
actually notice that.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
This is tricky for me, because I believe that if you are asking for
favorites, then I am under an obligation to apply strict criteria
in order to truly establish one, or possibly two, items as
exemplary standouts in the field of whichever category I happen to
be addressing at the time. I cannot fathom when people are asked
for a favorite and they respond with lists of fifty or more. What
kind of standard is that? You cannot truly be saying that all of
those items are of equal merit or personal value. While making a
choice can be difficult, the point of using discrimination in
examining one's personal tastes is an exercise ... sorry, I did it
Of Mice and Men
The Twilight Zone (original series)
The Alan Parsons Project
Alternatively, more recent stuff I've fallen in love with ...
Ready Player One
Mad Max: Fury Road
Great Big Sea
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My computer, my car, my cat ... That's about it. I've done without
an awful lot in my life and discovered that it's mostly survivable,
like it or not.
And Gummi Bears.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Alternate counting systems. Who invented magic. Wood-turning.
Solving Rubik's cube and related puzzles. What I'm like on
You know, the usual.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
At home by myself. Well, with my cat, Dex. That's why I'm here.
I've been told I need to go out and meet people, but that's never
been very easy for me. So ... here I am. I used to do trivia with a
team, but I may be giving that up. I'm getting tired of the drunks
and the noise. I believe that means I'm getting old. How old? The
doctor has to stick his finger in my bum once a year now.
And I hate those damn, punk teenagers.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I used to be 100 pounds heavier.
