My self-summary
I'm the sort of person who like to take regular wild adventures, but always have a consistent and comfortable home base to return to.
I am a unrepentant and happy nerd and a serious Halloween-o-phile.
I'm that sort of screwball who delights in rousing reactions from others, and will go out of my way to do odd things at times just to see how people react and maybe improve someones day with a laugh. This may or may not include wearing goofy hats at odd times.
I love learning, and applying that knowledge to creating new and interesting things. I firmly believe I can never had enough skills and abilities and always want to push the ones I have as far into excellence as my time and energy allows.
As such, I am a very build-y type person. I love making things, and occasionally fixing things. Its awesome to see something made with your own two hands, or to know you can fix something of yours if it breaks.
I'm pretty much immune to boredom, but do, on occasion get tired of my usual routines and patterns and feel the the need to randomly flip things over on their head just to see what will happen.
For those who like to dig into such things, my Myers-Briggs type is INTJ, and I seem to fit the profile pretty well.
What I’m doing with my life
I've somehow managed to segue from management into business ownership in the last few years, and bumbled through all the insanity that particular set of changes entailed. Now that I am getting a handle on that situation, I am looking to shake up my proverbial snow globe with some new activities and possible adventures.
I’m really good at
Being amused. I find a lot of things, even horribly inappropriate things funny and generally believe life is too short to take anything too seriously. Even tired or lame jokes can entertain me thoroughly.

I also am passing good as building things. I was that kid with the unnaturally large amount of Legos ... Now, I just have the tools and experience to have realized that everything is a Lego waiting to be built with. Some just need more "fixing" then others to get them to fit right. Between a variety of different crafty and construction related hobbies, I can usually manage a way to create just about anything given time and funds to make it so. Admittedly, most of this effort goes towards my month-long binge of good times that occurs each October. But with luck, it will eventually expand into more year-round options.
The first things people usually notice about me
Most likely either my glasses or the slightly Disney-villain goatee.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
For novels I always loved the Age of Unreason series by Gregory Keys, Jim Butchers Dresden Files and the Magicians series by Lev Grossman. The Dune series is pure classic awesome-sauce in a can. I also devour technical manuals, RPG books, and how-to guides like popcorn at the theater. Oh, and I am still a comic-nut at heart for when I can find well written examples. Both eastern or western. I.E., The Sandman, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, or Nausicaa. And of course, I am a fiend for Wikipedia.

Movies are always hard, but to toss a few names out there to give an idea, you could include Dark City, Cloud Atlas, Gladiator, Swordfish, The Incredibles, The Crow, John Wick, Star Wars (the originals please!), An American Werewolf in London, Alien, the Lord of the Rings trilogy, Jurassic Park, Ghost in the Shell, Cowboy Bebop, Serenity, and Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

My taste in music varies enormously with my mood. That nature of my current projects and how stressed I am will tend to dictate my choices in tunes. But to give some commonly-listened-to examples; Parov Stelar, E Nomine, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, ACDC, Nightwish, Daft Punk, Korn, Aerosmith, Rammstein, Basshunter, Vivaldi, Yoko Kanno, Danny Elfman, Abney Park, Voltaire, Flogging Molly, and the Bare Naked Ladies are but a few.

I'm pretty easy-going in the food department. I love breakfast food, and can happily eat it at any time of the day or night that the urge happens to strike. Sadly I have been more recently trying to improve my diet and get into back into better shape, which means bacon and pancakes are a rare treat rather then the norm.
The six things I could never do without
1.) The fantastic friends that I talk to most regularly. They've kept me sane through all manner of ills and woes, and put up with me and my antics for years.
2.) My computer. I use it more then anything else in my house, bed included. So its only fair the monolith gets the number two spot.
3.) My glasses. I like being able to see!
4.)Access to enough books, or the internet to keep me entertained. I'd go a bit bonkers without a constant stream of new learning to keep my brains sponge growing.
5.) My board game collection. I'm a bit of a board game nut. So its a bit extensive. Favorites include Dominion, Betrayal at the House on the Hill, King of Tokyo, and Lords of Waterdeep.
6.) Some sort of workshop or open place to make things in.... One of these days, I will own property. And when I do, I will build myself a nice, big, equipment filled workshop of awesome in which anything my oddball brain can imagine can be made in!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My next build project.
General financial bits from work.
The ongoing self destructive tendencies of mankind
Why exactly "I've got a lovely bunch of coconuts" is so damn catchy?
How can I talk my apartment complex into building or letting me build a rock climbing wall.
On a typical Friday night I am
Playing host for friends with board games, booze, and perhaps if the stars align correctly, chocolate and cheese fondues.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I almost always read something whenever I eat. Even when munching at work, I'll read nutrition and ingredient labels if nothing more stimulating is available. But usually, Wikipedia and I make buddies whenever I fill my stomach.
