Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I got here by installing a Facebook application, which surely says
something though I'm unsure what. Hopefully something about
more probably something about procrastination
I like stories
using my imagination
. So what does that mean
in practical terms? Well, for one I enjoy roleplaying
games, reading fiction
, watching movies
and so on. I also enjoy reading aloud, storytelling, theater and
writing (well - mostly I'm too lazy to really write, but at least
sketching out stories, characters and plots. Have managed to finish
a couple of NaNoWriMo
s though). Part of this
fascination is probably due to introvert escapism, and part of it
is that I'm so damn smart, that I need something to keep my brain
engaged :) I'm sure there is a more positive and less snarky spin
on that, but I enjoy a good snark so I don't really need one.
I am stylish, nerdy, and charming
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I try to learn new things all the time. Most recently I studied law
at night school, and I'm thinking I might try sociology or
psychology next. I've studied anatomy via online lectures. In
general I've found that the kick other people talk about getting
from a good workout I get from attending a lecture, reading an
interesting article or watching an inspiring TED talk.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Picking up useless (and occasionally useful) facts.
Coming up with questionable ideas end evil plots. All in the name
of interesting stories.
Baking. Well, I guess it depends on your definition really good,
but I've baked my share of stribed joconde bisquit and meringue
layer cakes, and I enjoy learning new recipes.
I also like to pretend I'm really good at other things, a delusion
I keep up by mostly doing things I'm good at :)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That I'm better dressed than they would espect for a nerd. Or that
I'm way nerdier than I look :)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Hmm - I don't like to pick favorites, since it all depends on mood.
But I guess I can select a few highlights.
Books: Raymond Chandler, Terry Pratchett, Oscar Wilde, Jim
Movies: The Labyrinth, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Dr. Strangelove,
TV: Star Trek, Glee, House, Fringe.
Music: David Bowie, Haydn, Katie Melua, Army of Lovers.
Food: Sushi, italian, indian. Pancakes. I love making pancakes. :)
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Well, there are all the obvious bits, like food and air. But I
doubt that is the point of the question.
My imagination and a chance to exercise it.
Rationalisations (try going a week without those). Mainly of my own
actions, but even of others.
Books. I don't read as much as I'd like currently, but even now I
just don't feel comfortable with a book close at hand.
Puzzles. Anything to occupy the mind. :)
Sugar. Part humming-bird, part man, that is me. But fortunately my
metabolism seems to handle it just fine, so I guess I'm just well
adapted to living in the 21st century.
Looking at other profiles it seems I'm supposed to mention sex as
well, but as much as I enjoy it, I've had opportunity to discover I
go very long without it. :| Oh well.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Stories. Coming up with new ones and mulling over the ones I
already know. Same thing with games. Work habit I guess.
Why our laws are the way they are, and how they might be refactored
to be more understandable. I think the very need for legal experts
to resolve even basic issues is a potential democratic problem, as
it disenfranchises the regular public.
What I might do with various superpowers - mostly in the realm of
telepathy or clairvoyance.
Regrets. Contrary to the popular notion I don't believe in living
without regrets. I believe regrets are a sign you can imagine a
better world and how you might have acted differently to bring that
better world about. I believe that teaches me something about what
I really want and how I might act differently in the future.
Lots and lots of other things. I may tend to think a bit too much.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Probably playing games
, be it role playing
, board games or
computer games. And possibly drinking. I have a thing for rum and
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have a complete collection of XXXenophile comics, and I greatly

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You feel like long rambling conversations. Or short ones. I'm sure
you can come up with better reasons than I can. :)
