My self-summary
I've recently moved to the Seattle area from Massachusetts, which managed to take a surprisingly long time for someone who's ostensibly used to out of state moves. After a marathon session of twists and turns, lemons and lemonade, horses fallen off of and onto, I'm finally ready to catch my breath and figure out what exactly I've gotten myself into.

I'm looking forward to the change of scenery(wonderful so far!), new experiences, and tentative root placement.

About me:
I'm fairly easygoing with a personality that can land all over the place on the intro/extroversion spectrum depending on the company and mood. I waver from being young for my age, to a prematurely crotchety old geezer. I can be a bit on the snarky side, but tend to be the butt of my own jokes, so maybe that doesn't qualify as proper snark?

I'm a skeptic by nurture, with a deep interest in questioning assumptions and spotting logical fallacies. -Both for the purpose of understanding myself and reality, and sorting out all the hilarious (and not so hilarious) things our species has a tendency to let ourselves get away with. I think this makes me more inquisitive and honest as opposed to blunt or abrasive.
Now, having just admitted all that "reality is more interesting" stuff, I would gladly trade universes for one that allowed me to go to school at Hogwarts. -where I would intentionally stretch the very boundaries of the definition of "super senior".

I'm a fan of comedy, curiosity, intellectual honesty, creativity and storytelling. I like words and correct spelling (I thank spellcheck daily), portmanteaus, playful sarcasm, situational and self depricational humor, obscure (and dorky!) movie references, punctuation (regularly misused), and parentheticals (regularly overused).
I have a low tolerance for arrogance, pretentiousness, and closed-minded people. I have a high tolerance for dumb jokes, bad movies, and conversational tangents.

Admission section:
I'm not really a bar-scene type of person, and like a fish in lava (this is not a type of dance) at a night club. I'm generally indifferent about sports(with exceptions), snarky (unadulterated snark in this case) to social conservatives, and my parallel parking isn't what it used to be.

Also pssst...despite what my photos might convey, I'm primarily a creature of the indoors, but willing (and excited) to learn about fun outdoorsy hobbies. Surprisingly, indoor activites just don't seem to warrant picture-taking as often(actually not at all surprising). Things I enjoy and plan to do more of: kayaking, (indoor) rock climbing, hiking, and ____insert_verb(s)____.

About you:
Hopefully intelligent, fun, kind, and attractive, with great comedic timing and a knack for cajoling people out of the house when they'd rather be lazy.

If any of the above(or below) strikes your fancy, you're interested in investigating the area, getting into(and out of!) adventures, trying new things in and out of our comfort zones, learning some junk, and more, please let me know!
What I’m doing with my life
-Starting fresh in a new city!
-Working a lot, and continuing to enjoy it.
-Putting more effort into experiencing new things.
-Living in a maze of boxes.
I’m really good at
-daydreaming and getting excited about potential future projects!
-daydreaming about awesome skills I'd like to learn (practical or otherwise).
-getting excited about Science news based on a sometimes tenuous layman's understanding!
-admitting when I'm wrong
-giving people the benefit of the doubt
-going with the flow
-burning anything I try to cook
-not being able to whistle
The first things people usually notice about me
I think you were supposed to fill this one out...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books:
Yes please. Currently (and very slowly) reading The Stand.

Audiobooks completed during my massive 50+ hour driving odyssey to the PNW: The Psychopath Test by Jon Ronson and The Eyes of the Dragon by Stephen King.

Other authors I like: Neil Gaiman, Neal Stephenson, Terry Pratchett. Graphic novels are a guilty pleasure (minus the guilt).

Movies:
Comedies, documentaries, Sci-fi/fantasy, suspense, 80s/90s classics...big dumb action movies(especially from the 80s/90s)
Some random favorites: Top Secret, A Fish Called Wanda, Big Trouble in Little China, The Big Lebowski, Trekkies, anything Miyazaki. -Probably most of what you like as well.
Shows:
My Netflix subscription hasn't been getting much love lately, I was formerly working through Dexter.
A few all-time favorites: Monty Python, Mr. Show, The State, Firefly, Penn and Teller's Bullshit.
Music:
I have a terrible time thinking of bands I like off the top of my head. No music snobbery, por favor!
Random favorites: Floex, Hidden Orchestra, My Brightest Diamond, Anamanaguchi, Antoine Dufour, True Widow...the Conan (Schwarzenegger) movie soundtrack.
Food:
I'm very easy to please. I eat meat, but enjoy vegetarian food as well. I tilt my head like a dog when I encounter vegans. No offence, vegans, but kindly deliver your portion of cheese and milk to me. It'll be put to good use, I promise.
Favorites: Thai, Indian, and Mexican. Cheese!

Games:
I can have fun with pretty much any type, and would love to try more board/party games after trying some amazingly fun ones at Thanksgiving with friends. Videogames: I like to sample a wide variety, but almost never have the time or attention span to finish any these days.
**Important note: I make games for a living, so some amount of respect (or at least no disrespect) for that is probably crucial.
The six things I could never do without
-Humor
-Intellectual stimulation
-Something to draw/paint/sculpt on/with
-A preference for knowing what's real over false comforts, and the honesty to accept the difference.
-Glasses/Contacts
-The internet
I spend a lot of time thinking about
-if I'm doing it wrong.
-if I did it wrong.
-if my new job title will fit well, or be too long in the arms.
-did I just walk out the door without my keys?

periodically:
-How to use reason to talk people out of positions they didn't use reason to get themselves into.
-how to avoid triggering conspiracy theorist co-workers.
On a typical Friday night I am
-decompressing after a long work week.
-spending too long surveying my options.
-hanging out with friends
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I would give up a significant number of my hopes and dreams in order to hug dogs for a living.

-Non-joke answer: I've nearly cried at work while listening to sad stories on Radiolab/ThisAmericanLife. I don't remember which one, but lets hope none of my co-workers noticed...
