My self-summary
I've had a profile since this site first came over from TheSpark many many years back. Sometimes parts of my profile go out of date.

I have a girlfriend and she has a profile here.
http://www.okcupid.com/profile/Andrastes_hare

I'm very happy with my relationship with her and have no interest in anything happening to it. It's a sorta open, sorta poly, relationship thing. We can date as long as everyone knows what the other is up to and gives a thumbs up. Honesty is a key part of our relationship and we talk a lot since we live together.

I've always been weird about terms anyway though. I can never tell a hanging out from a date unless someone says it specifically or the status between me and the person I am with has been well established over time.

Politically I'm a type of socialist and I'm very liberal socially. Religiously I'm an atheist and a bit of an anti-theist. I've been messing around online with free college classes online lately. I spent all day at work watching videos online. I love politics but I avoid political sites at work to avoid political conversations for "keeping my job" reasons.

I try to be a feminist. I try not to be transphobic, homophobic, or racist or anything like that. I can easily I'm better at it then an Alabama republican but I'm not going to be the one to say I do an awesome job at everything liberal all the time since I only get my own perspective. I grew up a white male on a military base with a conservative family my experience may not be the best perspective for my own actions. If I do something bad though I'm okay with thinking about it when called out on it instead of trying to defend myself so I can consider myself and my future actions.

I got rid of the car I that I obtained back when I lived in Cedar Park when I moved to where I live now because I live two miles away from work, right next to a mess of buses which include night owl buses that run until some weird time like 3:10 am, and I have a relatively nice bicycle that I recently bought. I get everywhere pretty efficiently with a mix of my bicycle and the city buses by choice.

I'm a bit hyper in some ways. I don't sit still but instead I twitch around and mess right things all the time. I talk fast. I go off in random mental directions and ten to be thinking about many things at once sometimes making my conversations a bit messy if I don't actively apply controls. I also tend to be in a good mood even in bad situations I'm fully aware of.

I often feel I need to go to more music shows like I did in San Antonio then I remember that I work weekends, I don't know where to begin with Austin's bands most of the time like I did in my old city, and I'm probably broke because I spent all my money on fancy vegetables. I'd worry since I'm only off Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday that I'd go off not find what I want and go home.

I like lots of things, mostly nerdy things. Someone could be like “hey dude, what do you think of,” and then say something nerdy like GURPs, or Shadowrun, or Star Trek, or Doctor Who, or a video game, or disc world, or whatever nerdy thing and I'd probably have a lot to say in the conversation.

I'm part of this site mostly because like conversations, especially instant message conversations that I can have in front of a computer. I am at a computer at work 40 hours a week and then I go home and spend time doing many different things in front of a computer and when I'm on the go it's likely I'll be at my phone reading something or playing something if I'm alone. I'm a very much a technophile who doesn't like to go too far from an electrical outlet to charge things. I would be happy if my fleshy body could be replaced by a cool cyborg body.

I have a bunch of PC games and love see and hearing about them as an art form owning more indie games then anyone I know. I think it's amazing we have an actual personally interactive form of media that combines sound videos and control in that way and uses newer technology all the time.

that's me. I'm slow with the hands though and tend to like slow or turn based strategy games best. Steam says I played civilization 5 for 492 hours. That means I played an average around 6 minutes a day since it's release in 2010 but that number may include a few times I fell asleep or went to the store and left the game on.
What I’m doing with my life
I don't know. Is OkCupid is asking me what I want to be when I grow up even though I'm in my 30s now. If I think about it I can think of lots of things I'd like to do but I don't think I know a big thing from a small thing and what even defines a thing I am doing “with my life” from a thing I just happen to be doing.

Working with various small projects on my computer? I spend a most nights reading random things online while I'm at work.
I’m really good at
I'm a computer nerd who's been doing tech support and computer repair type things for so many years I can often fix a simple problem before I even fully know what's going on just off some weird level of developed instinct.

I've gotten better are understanding and repairing a bike from all my time fixing my own bike.

I'm good at knowing the brewery and where the brewery is located at the mention of a locally available beer. I know many of the Austin breweries because I prefer to get something local and I know a lot of the Texas ones also.

I'm dependable in the kitchen as long as I have kitchen timers. I can properly use a knife and I have a lot of techniques down for the things I can eat. (I'm vegan though so I'm I don't know much about meat preparation.)

I know a lot of indie game developers by name and can list many things very small studios did. PC only though I never pay attention to console things except for some basics for it's effect on PC.
The first things people usually notice about me
Who knows? Do you know? I don't know. I have never met myself. If I do meet myself someday I'll be sure to tell me.

I would probably ask people but I never really got that interested in what people notice about me first.

I'm wearing my batman suit. If someone saw me now I hope the first thing they notice would be that I'm dressed like batman and then they would wonder why the cape on my pajamas is yellow.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books. It is hard to pick. I actually do read a lot. Mostly fantasy, sci-fi, and sometimes horror., but a specific book does not stand out as better then the others. I'm also pretty big on Lovecraft. I read all of the disc world series and love terry pratchett, I read the hitch hickers guide to the galaxy stuff, and I'm fond of a whole big bunch of the stuff H.P. Lovecraft wrote, but I can't pick out any specific books. I like to read books that come in a series. I have quite a few series that I keep up with whenever a new book for them comes out. I also like Glen Cook, Simon Green, Jim Butcher, Neil Gaiman, Charles DeLint and some other authors... I also read a lot of cookbooks weirdly.

Movies.... A long time ago this question was about specifically which movie I saw last year. Sometimes I watch movies while I'm at work at night.. and I remember I'm generally more interested in cheesey B movies then big names. I like to feel like everyone had fun making the movie. "They live" by John Carpenter is my favorite movie ever.

Shows.. I watch shows sometimes, but not normally unless I'm getting paid by the hour or it's on in the background while I'm doing other stuff. I like Niel Jordan version of "The Borgias" sometimes I'll watch news shows like Rachel Maddow, Young Turks, or Daily Show. I also will watch Doctor Who (But I don't like Steven Moffat) liked all of Firefly and all that other standard nerd requirement stuff.

Music.. Most of the time I have metal, hardcore punk, and strangely irish folk on buts a bit hard to say when I'll go into a burst of something specific that isn't my norm though. I used to see a whole lot more live bands still love the experience of a good live show. I leave Pandora Radio on in my ears while I do stuff in the world frequently.

I’ll read some bands I've liked. Bad Religion, Le Tigre, Korpiklaani, The Marked Men, Dead Kennedys, Black Flag, The Pogues, The Tossers, Propaghandi, Eluveitie, So Unloved, Filthy Thieving Bastards, Eagle Claw, Crimpshrine, The Circle Jerks, Gogol Bordello, Flogging Molly, Prevail Within, Alestorm, Reagan Youth, Go Betty Go, Smartbomb, Kivimetsän Druidi, Dead Milkmen, Haggard, and Nightwish. So Unloved and Prevail within are local San Antonio bands.

I am vegan so I only eat things that are vegan but I like a lot of food. I do a ton of cooking in the home and make almost everything from scratch. I make a lot different areas. Often I just make up a recipe based on what’s in the kitchen.. what I like best tends to change often but I go through bursts of favorites. I’m also fond of Indian food in general.
The six things I could never do without
There is not much I can think of that I cannot live without. If all the basic needs that I die without like air and food are banned for use in this question. Even things I really prefer having, like my computer, books, good kitchen knives, and my smartphone, I can live without and find other things to do with the absence of everything I have I know from experience. I'm limiting it to physical objects though.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I don't know. I'm not my mind's baby sitter. It's a chaotic mess. Sometimes I can't sleep for days because my brain goes into overdrive and won't stop. I'm normally in multiple directions at once.

I'm considered to be weirdly both very calm and relaxed but at the same time so constantly hopped up on my natural energy level that I remind people of a meth addict. I'm not sure how I manage that either.
On a typical Friday night I am
On Friday night I am at work.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am afraid of water. It can give me panic attacks. I have to stay away form a distance where I can sleep and fall into it. I can still shower and drink water and be outside in the rain but when it starts ganging up into something you can fall in it becomes scary stuff.

I can walk past the tiny creek near my home also. I don't know the level where water starts to freak me out until I am at that level.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 21–36
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For new friends, short-term dating
You should message me if
If you are a gigantic robot with cool missiles that pop out of your body you should definitely message me. It would be nice to speak to something like that.

Also if you are just bored and want to talk to anyone who will talk to anyone. I find IM conversations entertaining. We might not talk for long or often, but I'll see how the conversation goes with anyone.

You aren't a conservative and involved with the tea party. Unless it's a party that involves sitting around a table and drinking actual tea though. That kind would be fine as long as they use tiny cups.

I'm easier to catch on instant message then email. I may think you are cool but not reply to an email just because of how much I dislike organizing a message.

Here are some other methods of catching my by IM.

AIM: TheChiatroll
YIM: The_Chiatroll

I almost always show up online with okcupid IM though because I have a plugin on pidgin that lets me chat on okcupid without using this clunky website.
