My self-summary
You had me at Sriracha.

I am a pretty cool guy, i adnim sevrers, and doesnt afraid of anything.

Hopefully you'll soon realize that my adjectives are chosen for their iconic and ironic value.

Just like everyone and everything else, I'm a work in progress.

I consider myself genderqueer with a moderate feminine lean; the beard is my way of being gender-deviant. Just think of me as gender neutral, if you please - and should you find yourself looking for the correct pronouns to use when referring to me, please use singular they pronouns (they/them/their) in place of masculine pronouns. I won't freak if you use masculine pronouns, but everyone's entitled to a preference. :)

I am a textbook INTP (MBTI) and Architect (KTS-II). My Enneagram Type is Five with a Six-wing - "The Problem Solver." In the past, I have been an INFJ and an Enneagram Nine - "The Peacemaker."

I'm into computers, technology, music, science, psychology, nature, and beauty in all its various forms. I'm fascinated by what processes drive us and where we're going, as well as where we've been and who we are now as a universe.

I rarely actually do it, but I love to people watch. I spend far too much time reading WikiPedia articles and various articles and performing a variety of mad science experiments as a result.

Lately I have a growing penchant for Steampunk, and find myself wishing I had a workshop to build wooden PC cases with stained glass panels.

The following words and concepts make me happy on a cellular level:

Satori - Sudden enlightenment.

Yugen - An awareness of the universe that triggers emotional responses too deep and mysterious for words.

Bokeh - The visual quality of the out-of-focus areas of a photographic image, especially as rendered by a particular lens.

Kintsukuroi - The art of repairing pottery with gold or silver lacquer and understanding that the piece is more beautiful for having been broken.

I find these traits attractive:

~ A high degree of identity resolution, in that you are aware of your true self and strive to be it at all possible times.
~ A childlike (not childish) fascination with the world around you - one that takes delight in exploring new concepts and learning as much as is possible in this short life of ours.
~ A delicate, if not precarious balance of compassion, warmth, and selflessness with the safeguards necessary to avoid being taken advantage of; the wisdom to know when to hug and when to admonish.
~ Generosity, tempered by the drive not to enable.
~ Listening actively rather than waiting to speak.
~ Enjoyment of both the simple and the finer pleasures in life.
~ The ability to laugh at anything and remain positive - even in the face of soul-crushing adversity.
What I’m doing with my life
Living it to the fullest. Slowly walking along the compass rose in the direction of improvement.

I moved to Houston in August of 2008 to accept a job at an IT infrastructure company, and recently obtained Red Hat Certified Engineer status. Now I can put the fancy letters RHCE after my name. Huzzah!

I ruin hackers' and spammer's collective days. I can almost hear their anguished cries through the internet as I strike them with my banhammer, and I love it. I think I may be able to claim that I've been cussed out in more languages than any of my friends.

A few years ago, I became the proud papa of two adult male rats Earnest and Dewey, and loved them to bits. I had to have more, so I adopted dylanfanforever's rats Mr. Bojangles and Basil Ratbone, my former neighbor's rats Blondie and Prince, another friend's rats Skwisgaar and Toki, and my own rats Ayasha Meoquanee, Captain Jean Luc Picard of the U.S.S. Enterprise, The Magnificent Mr. Macchiato, Lakiya, Natsumi, Shio, Huchu, Ajna, and Padme. Several of them have moved on, but I will always cherish our memories.

I never saw myself as a rat person, but they've worm(tail)ed their way into my heart. <3
I’m really good at
Dominating anything silicon-based. No, not implants you dirty bird! Technical Support. Causing an untold volume of swearing in an innumerable number of languages. Protip: See the hacker and spammer reference above.

I'm also good at starting every manner of project and not finishing them. I usually learn what I need to from the experience, however.

I'd like to become good at crafting things, because I have so many ideas but don't feel like I have a means to express them. I also want to pick up the cello again. Anyone have a spare lying around?
The first things people usually notice about me
I suppose that would actually require input from people that actually observe me for the first time. I should put together a survey or something, but I'm really not too concerned with first impressions anyway. I have a tendency to grow on people over time.

If I had to surmise, I'd have to say that I put off an aura of anachronism. For instance, I'm into the newest technology but I want it to look like it came from the Victorian era. I'm a young man, but I'm already going bald and if I had my way, I'd shave with a straight razor. I think I'm rather shy when first meeting people, but I've been described as brave by people who barely know me. I've been told more times than I can count that I look like John Lennon. Maybe you should tell me what you think!

Glasses & sexy bald head. I know he would rather have long hair, but I had to restrain myself from licking it. Okay, maybe not, but now that I think of it, I like the idea. -jasmynnight

This is much less sexy than the previous comment, which makes me feel like a hippie, but the first thing I got was a general impression of warmth and strength. --elyssadeath

DEFINITELY glasses, then eyes: fixated on those for a long while - A LONG WHILE, then the length of his face, then his years, then his triangular patch, his nose, then his lack of hair --h1s4k0-89

The aura of dominance and terror he carries with him like a cloak at all times. He smells always of spilt blood. If you close your eyes near him you will hear plaintive and insistent whispers demanding entrance to your thoughts. One time I saw him sneeze in a petting zoo and all the animals in a twenty yard radius fell over dead. I've never seen him eat. I've never seen him smile. This man scares me as the devil himself does not. --SkippleNanifram

Editor's note:
Contrary to Skippy's dramatic flair, I'm really a nice guy. I promise, I do smile! :3
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I really don't read enough but I like to read books with deep plots that deal with spiritual issues, yet aren't treatises on spirituality. The Myst trilogy was a treat. His Dark Materials rocked. I'm also reading The Upanishads, The Bhagavad Gita, and The Dhammapada. That reminds me, I need to finish reading the Conversations With God trilogy. Why does some of the best reading come in trilogy form? Oh yeah, the Harry Potter series.

Movies: I could go on at length about movies I love. Perfume: The Story of a Murderer, The Matrix Trilogy (there's that word again), and 9 are among my favorites. V for Vendetta rocks, despite its nihilist message. 300 is amazing from a visual standpoint, and who wouldn't admit that they love looking at all that skin and muscle? I force my friends to watch Hedwig and the Angry Inch with me at some point. A.I., Bicentennial Man, and films of the sort always get me thinking (and crying).

Television: Since there wasn't a category, I created one. Piss on that, OKCupid! I pretty much love the whole Star Trek franchise and watch it whenever possible. I was into CSI Las Vegas for awhile, but I've seen almost all the episodes and I don't care much for any of the spin-offs (except maybe CSI Miami). I'll watch Scrubs any time I bump into it, because I love the cynical and wacky humor. I'm also convinced that there should be an entire channel devoted to Family Guy and Futurama. Mythbusters is always entertaining, and Adam and Jamie are devastatingly hilarious in real life. Dexter is in my NetFlix queue, as is Lost. If I'm not watching any of those, I'm probably watching a documentary with David Attenborough narrating.

Music: Here's another one I could go on about for ages. I like pretty much anything as long as it's not too mainstream. I can deal with repetitive, even hypnotic rhythms, but I can't stand repetitive lyrics (which is what the lion's share of Top 40 music should be hung for). Don't give me hooks, tell me a story! It doesn't even take words! I'm usually chilling out to some Ambient or IDM. I listen to Classical Music and Opera at will, and can even be caught jamming out to some Bluegrass now and then. My favorite songs are those that are highly complex and multi-layered. The rest of the time, I'm listening to Rock and maybe even a bit of Hip-Hop.

Art: Salvador Dali, Patricia Piccinini, M.C. Escher, Vincent van Gogh, and pretty much any other impressionist or surrealist. Also anthropomorphic artists such as Blotch, Kacey, Hibbary, Kyoht, SilverOne, Cubi, and CulpeoFox.

Food: The best food experiences often originate from other countries. If I had my way, I'd eat Indian, Mediterranean, Cantonese, Thai, Italian, or Mexican. Cajun and Creole light my fire. Spicy food and anything with pomegranate, mango, or avocado is good in my book. Jimmy John's Beach Club, anyone?
The six things I could never do without
1: Electricity, because it fuels so many of my fascinations.

2: The adaptability of the human species.

3: Unitarian Universalism.

4&5: Compassion and hope, because we are all lost without them.

6: Friction. Try to imagine what life would be like without it. Not very pretty, eh?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to survive the Zombpocalypse. Will this person (once they're a zombie) go down with a simple boot to the head, or will I have to break out my boom stick?

How doth the little crocodile
Improve his shining tail,
And pour the waters of the Nile
On every golden scale!
How cheerfully he seems to grin,
How neatly spreads his claws,
And welcomes little fishes in,
With gently smiling jaws!
On a typical Friday night I am
Recovering from another day of work. I don't care what anyone says, fiscal responsibility is sexy!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I can't stand the sound of soda (or other fizzy drinks) being poured. It drives me crazy, and I can't exactly place why.

I do something that's supposed to prevent Alzheimer's, but damned if I can remember what it is.

Whatever sense it is that allows people to detect earthquakes, I don't possess it. I've lived through a handful and haven't sensed a one.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 21–40
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
You live in the Houston metropolitan area. You have a new idea for me to wrap my mind around, or would like to know more about one I've presented here. You know a place to chill near the Galleria or Museum district.

You are Unitarian Universalist or get along well with UU's, in which case messaging me is not optional. :3

You have been stalking my profile for awhile but never write. You know who you are. ;)

I'd like to meet successful, independent, thoughtful, optimistic people of the feminine, androgynous, genderqueer or genderless persuasion.

I apologize in advance if I don't meet your definition of <insert label here>. Labels are for soup cans.
