My self-summary

This summary is more of a 'stream of consciousness' than anything remotely structured, so good luck. I may end up arguing with myself, but I really hope I don't. Getting along with myself is important, and arguments interfere with my unity. That's kind of nuts.

I'm a person who likes video games, reading, tabletop games, chatting and being slightly off-kilter. I'm quite laid back until I get riled up about a subject important to me, such as politics or whatnot. I'll try not to talk about politics unless you want to, since I know that sort of discussion can drive people away.

Speaking of discussions, I like debating and discussing things. And arguing things. I've been told I'm very logical and have a dry sense of humor, which doesn't always translate well over the internet and chat. So assume that everything I'm typing is sarcasm, or isn't sarcasm, or whichever you prefer.

Now back to discussions. I believe they're a great way to break the ice with someone, to determine whether or not you're compatible as friends. Even beyond the subject being discussed, you learn how the other person things and a conversation can drift off into other interests you share. Friendship is important to me in any prospect, so interests and being able to communicate is a big quality. Oh, and if I get really intense or irrational when discussing something, please let me know. I try to be reasonable and calm, but sometimes a bit of a temper can take over.

So yeah, I've written more than I meant to. Then again, I had no plan for writing and even this part is taking longer than I'd hoped. If you want to chat or discuss or whatever, please send me a message. But don't be too creepy. Or do, I guess, it might prove that we have similar humor, or it might just be good material for showing to friends. I generally don't share private, online-y chatter though. No worries, your thoughts are safe with me.

I swear there was something I wanted to add here, at the end, but since I can't remember what it was I'll just leave this here. Every time I look at it I will ponder and eventually give up. Curse you, ending paragraph!
What I’m doing with my life
I'm currently working for an accountant while I sort out what I want to do with my life. My end goal is to go into IT or some other type of computer work, and thus I am working toward my A+ Certification. Maybe an AS in Computer Networking after that, and more after that. Hey, as long as I can get into the field somewhere I'll be happy. And then Congress.
I’m really good at
I inhale oxygen and expel carbon dioxide like an expert. I'm also quite good at arguing about things, though not in a particularly confrontational manner. Debating might be a better word, actually.
The first things people usually notice about me
I've been told I have a penchant for dry humor. As I am not someone else and don't know what people notice about me, this is my only safe guess.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
This could take a while, so I'll be leaving many, many things out. Update: I keep remembering other things that HAVE to be included, and so I apologize for the current size and the unimaginable size that this section will eventually grow to. Please don't hate me, I can't stop myself from adding things!

My favorite books are The Anubis Gates, Altered Carbon, the Night Watch series, the Discworld series, the Black Company, and the Dresden Files.

My bookshelf gives credence to the fact that I am a Star Wars fan. This has waned in recent years, but it is still undoubtedly true. Unfortunately for the health of my loyalty, I prefer Plinkett's reviews to the prequel trilogy. George...! *shakes fist*

My favorite movies are I, Robot (yes, I know it was just renamed to sell better), Fifth Element, 12 Monkeys, Cloud Atlas, Super Troopers, Pirates of Penzance, Casanova, Repo! The Genetic Opera, Sean of the Dead, OSS 117: Le Caire, Nid D'Espions, The Big Lebowski, The Prestige, Dark City, Muppet Treasure Island, 500 Days of Summer, and Dune.

My favorite shows are Sherlock, Supernatural, Game of Thrones, Little Dorrit, Warehouse 13, Firefly, Battlestar Galactica, White Collar, The X-Files, Twin Peaks, Arrested Development, Lost in Austen, and Rome.

Bands I listen to often are Incubus, Puscifer, Modest Mouse, Florence & The Machine, Foster The People, Beats Antique, Lana Del Rey, Muse, Marina and the Diamonds, The Pixies, Diablo Swing Orchestra, The Black Keys, and Broken Social Scene. I'm also really into soundtrack music from shows, games and movies.

I prefer my food to have less ingredients and simpler tastes.
The six things I could never do without
Good conversation.
All sorts of books. Piles of books.
What's that other one? I don't know, probably cats or gaming or biking or something.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Recently my thoughts have been lingering on our political climate, but there's only so much gloom one can take. My brain would much rather be lingering on the similarities and differences of Abrahamic mythologies and other mythologies surrounding the Mediterranean. Or food; fantastic food is another great demand on my attention.

Also my cat, but that's because she's very needy. Treats treats treats treats. Cats, am I right?
On a typical Friday night I am
Usually hanging out and gaming with friends. Or trying to write something and not quite nailing it. Or researching Romanian mythology and teaching myself how to speak like a native Glaswegian.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I've wanted to write a novel my entire life, and some day I'll do so.
You should message me if
I'm here, most of all, for friends. Interesting banter and conversation is a boon beyond all else, though I will not complain if you simply drop by to suggest a new band or show to me. Quite the opposite, really, suggestions are good.
