My self-summary
Hey, how's it going? hmm, summaries...
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 not.
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 understand it.
What I’m doing with my life
I currently work online, which contributes far too much to that side of me that screams misanthropic hermit. As I really only have to leave for the bare necessities. So I take karaoke supplements at dive bars and look for new things for my friends and I to plan for and never do.
I’m really good at
Perambulating, Prevaricating Provocatively, Procrastinating, Personifying Prudence Post-Peril, Puzzlingly Poor Penmanship...
and also, apparently, alliterating.
Apologies all around.
The first things people usually notice about me
Never asked, never had occasion to meet myself either. Soon as I come face to face with me I'll tell you.

From High School on I've gotten "you look like" : Rivers Cuomo, John Lennon, Elvis Costello, and once even Billy Joe Armstrong. The first three I took as compliments, the last I took to therapy.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Neil Gaiman and Jim Butcher off the top of my head
It has occurred to me to simply list a selection from off my shelf:
- Justice for Hedgehogs: Ronald Dworkin (a work of ethical philosophy, not a treatise on hedgehog abuse)
- Freedom Evolves: Dan Dennett (this man astounds me)
- Night Watch: Sergei Lukyanenko (It's in REPRINT!!!)
- Good Omens: Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman
- Straw Dogs: John Gray (Arguing against the concept of Human Exceptionalism)

Recently got dragged (happily) back into comics, recent reads:
- Saga (How great is one series allowed to be?)
- Federal Bureau of Physics (Never have I wanted more for gravity and time to fail)

Online Comics (one of the best inventions from the internet):
- Tweep (all told, probably my favorite on the list)
- LICD (Just great, occasional nsfw topics)
- Questionable Content (almost too much angst)
- John Allison's anything really, though now it's called Bad Machinery

Video Games: The Zelda series is pure nostalgia and Professor Layton is a new classic. If the names Day of The Tentacle, Indigo Prophecy, or Advent Rising mean anything to you congratulations on a well rounded life. Add to that list Duck Hunt, Battletoads/Double Dragon and Zombies Ate My Neighbors for a good idea of some of my favorite games over the course of my childhood.

Movies: I love noir, comedies with wit. I'd forgotten how much I love old Hong Kong Kung Fu movies (back when Chow Yun Fat still went by Yun Fat Chow in the credits, and poorly dubbed Jackie Chan flicks).
If you ask my favorite nerd trilogy I'll answer "where there are no roads". If only because the second always has snakes.

Television: (disclaimer: don't watch broadcast or cable)
- My mornings usually involve the previous night's Daily Show/Colbert Report/@Midnight off of Hulu though those can and do back up.
- British: Doctor Who and Sherlock obviously (how great is the reimagining heavy on the sociopathy?) Moone Boy, IT Crowd, Spy... The more I think about it the more I feel this list will get WAY too long
- I am a Firefly, Community, and Arrested Development die-hard fan.

if this makes you bust a gut we'll get along fine:

Music: Mix of classic rock, indie rock, folk, blues, bluegrass for fun. Sounds Hipster when I put it that way lol.
Sampling of songs:
Dispatch
Paolo Nutini
JJ Grey and Mofro
Pearl and the Beard
The Lone Bellow - Button

Food: I like to cook, need I say more? Perhaps I do, I love stews, followed closely by soups, though I draw the line at chowders. I make a mean Coca-Cola taco and a great Guinness beef stew.
I'm currently working out the kinks in my head for a Kiwano Melon Taco... I'm determined to make it work.
The six things I could never do without
In no particular order: Heart, stomach, liver, lungs, kidneys, and brain...
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
- My doctor who tea mug, lol
I spend a lot of time thinking about
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.

I'd love Presentism, but I'm pretty sure it wouldn't work for me in the future.

I'd like Solipsism, but I'm worried it's just me.

I'd like Determinism, but I have problems with authority.

I'd be an Existentialist if I could just see the point.

I believe hyperbole is the single greatest crime against humanity. The second is Irony.

There is no I in denial.

On a typical Friday night I am
Hanging with my friends or working.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Without the Daily Show I'd probably know next to nothing about current affairs while they're relevant. Also, my syntax strangely reflects my mood...

I'm embarrassed at the depth of my disappointment that I will never once experience a pan-dimensional gargle blaster. Also, that I messed up the name of the Pan-GALACTIC Gargle Blaster.

And finally articles like this one are how I get my jollies:
