Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I have had the same self-summary for almost a decade. Things you
did your freshman year of college don't really hold up after you
I am myself; I have put up with my antics and lunacy for so long I
am not sure which flaws are most important to point out, or which
traits I should brag about.
I am a total peter pan syndrome.
I am almost certainly addicted to video games, and information (my
bouts of insomnia might be caused by visiting wikipedia).
I prefer to leave people amused and smiling, even if it requires a
lie or 3.

the time I gained from quitting the bar scene, and I really enjoy
I will go to great personal lengths to not betray a friend.
I love to give back rubs and head scritchies.
I am random, distant, and errant
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm spending the summer in the Noog trying to help get a tech
startup off the ground! It's long hours during the day/night,
followed by playing just as hard as we work. When we're not
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
/fps variants. Being
random and lucking out. Entertaining people. Dodging and evading
questions is another fine ability of mine. Being nonjudgmental (at
least, externally so.)
I have this incredible ability to say the exact wrong thing at the
exact right time. While it usually leads to hilarity, it also bites
me in the ass. I am very good at snatching defeat from
I have a great lack of fashion sense. One could, in fact, say I am
really good at lacking it.
Setting off other people's Gaydar. I guess guys aren't supposed to
look as awesome in a dress as I do.
I recently picked up playing pinball, and I seem to have a knack
for it (sometimes).
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My voice--I'm pretty loud.
Stick around for more than an hour or two and you'll see that I
don't view the world through the same lens most people do.

"We" by Yevgeny Zamyatin. "Der Vorleser" by Bernhard Schlink, even
if it is soft-core porn (UPDATE: That's The Reader
for you kids who prefer
your books in movie format.) "Links" by Nuruddin Farah. I recently
started reading print books again, but haven't really come across
anything worthwhile. Yet.

What can I say? Cheesy movies make me smile.
As for music I'm a huge fan of Paul van Dyk
, Milk, Inc. Paul Oakenfold Pendulum
and others. As for

My favorite foods, now in convenient list format. Gyros, Strawberry
juice, cheap Chinese take-out, Subway, ramen,
orange juice, Cinnamon Life
hole-in-the-wall restaurant BBQ

favorites. I've also been lactose intolerant since 2006.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
the Internet, gaming, freedom
, fresh air, sleep (I don't know
why I need this, considering how little of it I get), and music
(especially BBC1's Essential Mix. Or just BBC1 full stop). I think
in that order.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Why the hell everyone is jumping on the gluten-free diets. Did
everyone suddenly go allergic while I wasn't looking?

I find it upsetting that so many people seem unhappy with either
their direction or lack of direction in their life. If you don't
like it, try to fix it!
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
When you're in a tech startup, a typical Friday involves trying to
finish everything so you can go home before 6, followed by partying
as hard as you worked that week. I'm trying to make it to as many
CFC games as I can while I'm in town. Soccer in the USA!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I don't really hate people. I just tend to distrust them.
I'm terrified of dying alone.
One of my exes described me as follows, "complex, distant, and
oftentimes unbalanced." I find that to be pretty accurate. Well,
maybe not complex, more like obfuscated. She also called me a
I am VERY easily distracted as of late.
My normal home is with my parents. Free rent makes me a
happy camper, but a sad panda. Living in the dorms this summer has
made me miss having windows that don't leak during storms.

Disadvantage to the start-up life is that going dutch is the only
way to afford going out.
You aren't looking for something permanent (location-wise, not

You think I should have messaged you. Seriously, i've read
enough on reddit and gawkr and the like to really turn me off on
