Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm pretty awesome.
I am often too sarcastic for my own good and use too many obscure
references. I have been known to speak before thinking and usually
to say the wrong thing.
When I was 13, my mom bet me that I wouldn't read 10 books during
the summer. I read 50 in three months. I donate to public libraries
when I am done reading. I go to the bookstore at least once a week.
Maybe twice a week. Getting one of those electronic books was both
the most awesome and worst thing that could have happened to me.
Now I can carry all sorts of books with me. And on the downside, I
buy even more books now.
I ate a starfish. And some kangaroo. And a scorpion. And some dog.
And some cat. And some sea urchin. And some raw horse. And some
bat. I can now add camel to the list. I've gone swimming over the
Marianas Trench. I've climbed the Great Wall (and got drunk while
climbing it) and visited Tienanmen Square. I've spent New Years in
Tokyo and Thanksgiving in Hong Kong. I've fed a wombat in
Australia. I've lived in Spain. I've been in a bullfight. I have
almost been to every continent now. My latest goal is to get to
Antarctica before I turn 40. I may or may not attempt to smuggle a
penguin back with me.
I am a geek. I enjoy Star Wars (the original trilogy - not those
three horrible ones that came out recently) and Dr. Who.
I watch sports. I am a San Diego Chargers fan (one of the most
painful things in my life) and I can guarantee that I will never
cheer for the Patriots or the Raiders (sorry?).
I am handy around the house.
If I don't know, I will probably go look it up. I don't think I
will ever stop learning something. I am trying to teach myself to
play the mandolin now. And I have no musical talent. It's not going
well. But, damnit, I will learn. I gave up on the mandolin. too
many strings. I've decided to start smaller. now attempting to
learn the ukulele.
I am witty, aware, and lost.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working. Traveling. Breathing. Learning. Living. Enjoying. Probably
I try not to let my job define what I am. It's just what I do to
pay the bills.
I try to learn something new every day.
Finally done with my Masters.
Looking for ways to have a Charlie Sheen
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Remembering the lyrics to the greatest hits of the 80s and
Avoiding being in pictures.
Watching movies. No such thing as a bad movie.
Drinking good beer
. And no whiskey
and scotch are not the same thing at all.
. I can make a pretty amazing pesto. Or guacamole. Or grill
Making pop culture obscure references.
used to never take naps. Then I learned the joy of napping.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I've been told my eyes, but it's up to you to make your own
Or that I will sometimes say something inappropriate.
Or the scar on my forehead.
Or that I am eating a starfish in my picture.
Or that I usually have money from at least four countries in my
wallet at any one time.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
- Whatever the
last book I read was. My personal favorite these days is "Lamb" by
. Or "Pillars of the Earth" by Kent Follett. I prefer
fiction to non-fiction. I'll read non-fiction when the subject is
something interesting, but I read to relax, and I find that fiction
does that much better than anything else.
- I lost
count. I enjoy movies. I will watch almost anything. I don't really
care what critics says about a movie. If a movie is supposed to be
dumb fun, and it is, I'll probably like it. I'm not expecting Bill
and Ted's Excellent Adventure to have some sort of higher meaning
and social impact. I'm not saying that it didn't. I'm just saying
that I wasn't expecting it to.
Music - Something loud. I put my iPod on shuffle one day at work
and people thought I was crazy. It went from punk to classical to
celtic folk music. I don't listen to a lot of the stuff they put on
the radio. Mostly I listen to rock or hardcore or metal. All That Remains
, Rise Against
, Against Me!
, The Birthday Massacre
for my Valentine
. I can't stand most rap. If I am
listening to rap, it's something like Aesop Rock
, MC Lars
or MC Frontalot
Food - Anything. Some of my favorites are Thai
. I travel a lot. I have found good
food everywhere that I have been. But I will drive 50 miles for
decent Mexican food, Carne Asada
or Fish Tacos
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How I am going to survive the coming zombie apocalypse.
What I want to do with my life. Or what I want to do tonight.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Here or there.
Going to the movies.
Finding a new place to eat.
Drinking beer/wine/whiskey/gin and enjoying a quiet/loud
On my couch, reading.
Out on the town.
Not on dry land.
For the last 6 months, my friday nights have consisted of drinking
bourbon and writing my thesis. But that's done.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
At one point I had 75 staples in my right leg. Ask me about that
scar sometime. Or the scars on my chest. Or the one on my forehead.
Or the one on my hand. I used to set of metal detectors in
airports. I've broken a few bones in my time.
I get shy in large groups.
I have two tattoos
. I want more. But I don't know
what I want.
I don't know what I want to be when I grow up.
I got attacked by a seagull when I was a child. And I have a very
strong dislike of those flying rats to this very day.
I'm a bit of a geek
I am afraid of flan. That stuff just isn't natural...
