My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm here to meet new people and make new friends. I feel more comfortable about meeting people and then seeing if anything develops from that, than I do about seeking people to date. I don't like feeling like I'm going in with an agenda.

I am puzzled, amused, and lateral, with an offbeat sense of humour. I post odd things to twitter sometimes for a convention I'm helping to organise. Occasionally they even make sense.

I tend to get stuck in a routine easily - which is great when I'm travelling because where ever I happen to be, that's where I'm comfortable. It also means that home life tends to need a bit of a kick from time to time, which is why I'm on this site, now.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working, running a gym at work and (for the last few months at least) going to it regularly, trying to organise life while staying relaxed about things. Helping to run a convention, and trying to tidy the house after home improvement's been and gone. No-one tells you about that part of it. I've also got a new housemate, so I'm being a good landlord and decorating.

I've decided that age 39 is going to be my mid-life, and I'm currently trying to work out what sort of crisis I'll have. I'm hoping it'll be fun, like one of those second-childhood things.

I've recently got a fitbit. The computer tells me I should go for walks. I go for walks. I am a good computer-citizen.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm good at explaining things; people've said I'm clear without being patronising. I've taught computer based subjects and martial arts, and seem to find it easy to get the message across. Or maybe I've had gifted students?

I'm told I'm really bad at puns, but I think that's a good thing.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I honestly don't know, I've never asked anyone. I will, and fill this in later.

Ok, I've asked someone what the first thing people notice is, and they said "A bad pun drifting across the room." So there you go.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
When it comes to the TV, I go for QI, Dexter, Supernatural, White Collar, Once Upon A Time, Person of Interest... there are lots of shows that come and go. Movies are just as varied, although I could watch Serenity over and again.

I prefer to listen to music that make me feel happy, regardless of genre.

I tend to read a lot of factual books as well as fiction, as I love learning about the way things work. I like the Sherlock Holmes stories (and the two recent TV shows, too, although Jeremy Brett is still amazing). I read a lot of Charles Stross and some Alastair Reynolds. I'm a fan of Pratchett, and I've been to a few of the discworld conventions. Only some of the people there are odd, they're good people to know.

I'm trying to cut down on the take-aways, so I shouldn't really list those as favourite foods. Calorie control works, but it's so dull.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Anytime the internet connection goes away, I'm stuck for something to do, because everything I think of involves looking something up on the internet, from what films are on to the opening times of places to visit.

My cats, although I answered the questions honestly when it asked whether I would make accommodations for people who were allergic or didn't like them.

My friends, an open mind, a sense of humour, and the ability to count to six.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I think about a wide variety of things, from complex issues to what shapes my spilled drink looks like. I sometimes burst out laughing just because I've seen the funny side - or some funny way of seeing what's going on.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Watching DVDs, playing video games, or out at the pub.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
This question is tricky for me. I seem to have different boundaries to some people, especially in what I'll accept other people telling me, and what I'll share. Not in a TMI way, though. Maybe that's something I shouldn't admit?
