Well, let's see.
My story is pretty typical. I had dreams of being a writer (and
still do), but was pulled off the rails by the usual need for food
and shelter. I've had a good run doing administrative work, but
it's hardly the dream. Give me even the slightest book deal and
I'll never work a spreadsheet again.
Outside of that, I've been lucky. I have a supportive family, good
friends, and a full head of hair. (Some of them gray, but still.)
I've never taken a lot of chances, though, so it's about time that
I am also fairly tall, which I hear is a draw.
What I’m doing with my life
Just going through the administrative motions right now. Office
work pays the bills but it's about as fun as running in
My two current projects are a book I'm writing with one of my
dearest friends, and the written portion of a video game another
friend plans to publish.
Oh, and I just drank some ginger ale.
I’m really good at
Writing, video games, memorizing television quotes, and listening
to a friend in need. Seriously, I am a top ten all-time listener.
The first things people usually notice about me
Hell, I don't know. I've never noticed myself; at least, not in
I'm tall. Maybe that? Or the glasses? Some dry, snarky comment I
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Book: Alice In Wonderland
Movie: Dr. Strangelove
The six things I could never do without
Good friends, creativity, a warm bed, long walks, music, and ginger
ale. Not necessarily in that order.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Philosophy and/or sociology. I am deeply fascinated by human
thought and behavior. We are amazing creatures, even at our worst.
On a typical Friday night I am
Home, probably? I'm not the night life sort.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Not sure you know what private means, OkCupid.
You should message me if
If? Who needs the qualifier? If you feel like it, just message me.
What's the harm? Worst-case scenario, I turn out to be boring
and/or strange and you get a funny story to tell your friends.
Best-case? Who can say?
Even if you just want a digital pen pal, that works. I am always
seeking a distraction while computing.
