Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
There came a day, one that will live forever in relative obscurity
as the day I was born. I've lived on since that day against all
odds, and while I've long since reached adulthood, I sometimes
wonder if I've reached the age of maturity just yet. I hope
I'm an unabashed Geek and a moderate Nerd; Wait, strike that,
reverse it. I like to think I'm rather clever and find it funny
when I'm proven wrong. When inspiration strikes and I feel like
adding more here I will.
For those that like Myers-Briggs, I'm a pretty textbook INTP as I
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I have now chained myself to my company's main office and rankle at
my (mostly perceived) loss of freedom. Though my weekends are once
again open, I remain at a loss for what to do with them. Two years
working at the drop of a hat to help keep a startup afloat and I've
forgotten what real "Free Time" feels like.
Beyond that I chase interests the way dogs chase squirrels.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Perambulating, Prevaricating Provocatively, Procrastinating,
Personifying Prudence Post-Peril, Puzzlingly Poor
and also, apparently, alliterating.
Apologies all around.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

This whole section was a proverbial "Wall of Text", for all our
sakes I'm going to shorten as best I can... (I know! I'll put
something semi obscure down that I love instead of a list.)
Podcasts: Startalk, Nerdist, You Are Not So Smart, Inquiring Minds,
RadioLab, the Alton Browncast, and the Dead Authors Podcast.
Comics: Federal Bureau of Physics and Saga are the only two I
really follow even semi regularly.
Books: I love to read, I have a hundred stories elucidating this.
All of which make this section just too long to list. Let me just
boil it down to the two modern fiction authors whose books I'll buy
Jim Butcher and Neil Gaiman.
- Illusions: The Adventures of a Reluctant Messiah - Richard
Movies: I love comedies, and old Sci Fi. Flight of the Navigator,
Ghostbusters, Back to the Future, Indiana Jones (it's a trilogy and
nothing anyone says will change that)
- Better Off Dead
Television: Hulu and Netflix are a racket, they steal away my time
and charge me for it, the rat bastards. But seriously I love
British Comedies and dabble in watching others. Obligatory Dr Who,
Sherlock, and G.O.T. I love Archer and I grew up watching OLD
- Moone Boy
Music: Mix of classic rock, indie rock, folk, blues, bluegrass for
fun. Sounds Hipster when I put it that way.
First Concert? Weird Al's "Running with Scissors" tour at thirteen,
in no way am I still ashamed to admit that.
- They Might be Giants
Food: I like to cook, and I really like to cook new things. As a
kid I wanted a chemistry set... instead I got a "Cooking up
Chemistry" set, it was downhill from there.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
In no particular order: Heart, stomach, liver, lungs, kidneys, and
Figurative necessities include:
- Dark beer or good whiskey
- A decent computer with internet access
- Books in physical form
- Family and good friends (aka found family)
- A quiet space for myself to think
- A rock to wind a piece of string around
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I spend a lot of time thinking, I also like to ruminate, meditate,
cogitate, deliberate, and on occasion I might muse or even ponder.
It's far rarer to find me obsessing or analyzing and I flat refuse
to mull anything over.
If anyone will EVER set me up with an honest "Can I be frank with
you?" It may or may not be on my bucket list. (It's the small
things in life)
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
If alone and winding down? Simultaneous Hulu/Netflix and games, or
book and nothing else. Outings are a different tale obviously, and
neither are they rare nor typical.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm embarrassed at the depth of my disappointment that I will never
once experience a drink like the pan-galactic gargle blaster.
And finally articles like this one are how I get my jollies:
