I'm a societal daredevil, willing to break bread with anyone within earshot. Yes, I'm a geek. But my obsessions don't make me a pariah. I can reign it in when the occasion calls for it. I know not everyone may be interested in what I like, but maybe if I could explain it to you in private...
And as a final note, I hate to bring this up, I don't drink or smoke, but I don't chastise those that do, unless it presents a problem to other people. Some people find my teetotaling odd...as well as my use of outdated, old timey terms such as "teetotaling."

2. My Glasses. I'm near-sighted, so it doesn't help me driving without them at night.
3. My Car
5. My Phone
6. The ignorance of the world. (where would youtube be without it?)
I also think about why should we go to the lobby.
In all seriousness, I'm a semi-normal (Just a few pegs up from abnormal) guy. Strike up a conversation.
