Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
About Me: A hybrid born of phrenological engineering in a lab
filled with moldy alchemical tomes and rabid mites... wait, no,
that's not right. I'm a human being. I have faults and strengths, I
have dreams and fears. In terms of an origin story, I was raised an
army brat, dropped out of college after a year, found myself
drifting from job to job, moved to Humboldt because I had some
family here and have been living like a mountainous hermit ever
I work for myself. Working for other people. If that makes sense.
Primarily I am a landscaper, but since I moved to the country, I am
also a ditch digger, wood cutter/splitter, plumber, junior
carpenter, and pancake. Wait, no, not pancake. More or less I'm a
basic handy-man slash general labor yutz for a few older families
in my area.
I once owned my own bowling ball, even though I rarely ever bowl
and I'm pretty horrible at it. I enjoy it, but I'm shit, really. I
named him Prince. Prince the Purple Bowling Ball. I neglected him
and now he is gone. I learned a lot about having inanimate objects
as pets, though, and felt the experience helped me grow as a human
being. Oh Prince the Purple Bowling Ball. How I miss you.
I'm on OKCupid because I live on a mountain and while I love the
rural setting and the picturesque views, there aren't a lot of
folks my age around here. I'd like to meet people. If we hit it
off, that's great, if not, that's cool too. But I do want to *meet*
people. I'm willing to drive a decent ways to meet you, because
frankly, if I wasn't, I'd never meet anybody.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I have a job. I have a home.
I'm constantly making an effort to be creative in some way. I
write, I play a bass guitar and sing, (I'm not great at either, but
I enjoy it) and I occasionally even sketch-a-doodle. I'd like to
turn that first hobby into something that pays. I seem to have
trouble finishing the things I start, though.
Also... meh, I'll get back to this.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
1. Not sorting my clothes when I do laundry.
2. Eating foods.
3. Singing to myself loudly in the car, then pretending I'm not the
moment I think someone might see me.
4. Not folding my clothes after I do laundry
5. Being kind to waitstaff. I've been there. Solidarity my
waitstaff brethren! One day we shall rise and overthrow our
6. Also, I play bass guitar fairly decently and putz around with an
electric guitar and spend a lot of my spare time making
post-punkish style music. Can't say I'm good, or even listenable,
but I really enjoy the process.
The first things people usually notice about me

Anyone care to contribute?
The first thing I noticed about Mote was that he was friendly.
My first impression of Mote
was that he provided a voice of
calm reason in heated... discussions, even when his was the only
dissenting one. And that no matter how heated, the others always
listened to and respected him. So I was initially impressed with
his courage and his values. The more I get to know him, the more I
find to be impressed by. He's a delightful conversationalist and
wonderful friend. JoyfulParadox
loves to write and it's a darned good thing for the
rest of us because he's pretty good at it. You wouldn't notice it,
of course, when meeting him. However, if you met him, the wry sense
of humor that sparkles... would be evident. (Yes, Mote
sparkles - you make people grin and you have a fan club). He's
probably not wearing a kilt though. Dammit.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
A. Science Fiction, Fantasy, Suspense, etc. I love fiction in
general, Fav authors at the moment: walter jon williams
and lots of bracketed
random other writers
.B. Movies: I like
weird movies, classic movies, pretentious foreign films,samurai
flicks and so forth. I can pretty much enjoy most anything,
movie-wise. With the exception of gangster movies (Including
godfather and Scarface and other "classics") which for some reason
hold no interest to me whatsoever.C. Music:I admit I have very
particular tastes in music. I am something of a music snob, though
I try to be more open. In general, I have very broad, yet specific
likes. Anything from classic rock- the animals
, pink floyd
, creedence, etc to early
80's goth-rock and punk- bauhaus
and souixsie and the
(not morrisey though) to more modern stuff like:
, magneta lane
, bomba estereo
, blonde redhead
, actually, scratch Vampire Weekend, I think. They've
gotten a bit too cutesy and obnoxiously clever. Lets not forget the
best band ever I hate these stupid
who played back-up to Gwar once, but then disbanded
because of creative differences.D. Foods: I generally like it in
direct proportion to its unhealthiness. The more unhealthy, the
more I gotta have it.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
4. Food, Air, etc. HA! I am now the 93,562nd 'okcupid' user to list
'air.' I should win a prize. WHERE'S MY PRIZE?
5. Life Experiences
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Where I want to go with my mid-life crisis. I'm closing in on
forty, so I need to start preparing. I was thinking sports car and
a 20 year old girlfriend, but that's so 1980's mid-life crisis.
Maybe instead I'll invest all my money in Bitcoins or some other
stupid trend that promises to pay off big in the short term. But
then I'll get greedy and it will crash and I'll end up destitute
and selling my body for pasta. But not that cheap store brand
pasta. That high dollar Annie's Mac and Cheese shit. A man has his
UPDATE: I AM
I am not ready! Nooo! Make it go back! Oh, fuck it. Feels a
lot like 39.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Watching the paint dry and accidentally getting high off the fumes,
then getting sick and being rushed to the hospital, where I might
meet a cute nurse and then ruin my chances with her by throwing up
on her shoes.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I enjoy the company of women more than the company of men
Risqué, aint I? (look I used that little e with the dashy! Fancy!)
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
1. You are capable of operating your keyboard.
2. Can think of something to talk about. If not- I suggest cookies
as a topic.
3. Do now/have once/will have ever had the use of a time
4. Want to give me a million dollars. Or any amount of money,
5. Don't mind physically meeting sooner or later.
Really, I'd love to meet a local(ish) or two to just hang out with
from time to time.
I like weird people. I like tolerant people. I like sarcasm and
snark, but sparingly... Too much too often is too negative. I like
well balanced people- people who have their own beliefs but are
willing to explore the motivations behind opposing beliefs. I like
people who are introspective yet self-assured.
*I like people who are fully formed individuals and capable of
taking care of themselves.*
Also, and I do think I mentioned this, I like cookies.
