Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm willing to bet I'm the only person you've ever met who has ever
signed autographs in the town of Tomahawk, Alberta (population:
It's scenarios like that which lead me to my fledgling hobby
(possible eventual side-career) as a stand up comedian. Sure,
everybody eventually is going to travel to the big spots, but how
many people have seen the little nooks and crannies just around the
corner that barely get cable TV signal? It's a strange life, but it
can be quite fun.
Have you ever been in a really strangely decorated bar when,
suddenly, a large plastic giraffe falls over and instantly draws
the attention of the entire room? If so, I was the guy in the back
yelling for a medic and a very large neck brace (true story.)
I'm the kind of person who's kind of hard to peg down in a "type",
as I bounce around a lot. Not too many people I know have ever had
to put a shopping bag from a comic book store in their locker at
the gym... but it's definitely something I've done more than once.
That being said, this also means I can generally find at least some
common ground with most groups, which tends to pay off. If we can't
find *something* in common to talk about, you may be a cyborg...
not that there's anything wrong with that.
One of my resolutions this year has been to start just randomly
trying things I never have before. This has already lead me to my
first shooting range experience (hard to believe for an Alberta
boy, I know). Rock climbing and sky diving are on the horizon, and
I'm always looking for new ideas and cool people to take along for
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I dislike this question because people tend to use it to drone on
about work, and VERY few people are defined in any meaningful way
by their work. I'm certainly not one of them.
I prefer to think that what I'm currently doing in my life is
looking for the next experience, opportunity, outlet or
relationship that can help shape the person I am OUTSIDE of the
work day. I'm always on the lookout for something interesting to
do, or someone interesting to do those things with. Sure, this
attitude may never lead me to a spot on the fortune 500, but at
least I won't be one of those guys on their death beds wishing they
spent less time at work.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
pieces, I rarely finish anything very long so I can't say if I'm
good at it or not), comedy
games, reading people... and other
stuff I can't think of right now.
Remembering my skills, however, is clearly NOT a strong suit.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books - fiction-wise: most by Joe Hill, "Odd Thomas
" by Dean Koontz,
" by William Goldman, "Mystic River
" by Denis Lehane (SO
MUCH better than the movie), and a bunch more.
in terms of non-fiction: I'm borderline obsessed with the works of
Music - My phone has at least A LITTLE of everything from rap, to
country, to a band that plays pseudo-metal on cellos.... but the
bulk of my favorites fall in the rock-ish spectrum (which is still
like, 12 different genres really, lol). Some favorites are
, Stone Sour
, The Bravery
, The Dudes
... I could go on
Movies: Wow. I'm a huge movie guy so I could practically write a
novel on this... but the real A+, must-have list includes...
(if I had to pick one favorite, this is it), Repo!: The
, The Dark Knight
, Chasing Amy
anything by Kevin Smith, really), Three Musketeers
version), The Butterfly Effect
Bang You're Dead
, Pan's Labyrinth
, A Time To Kill
Kiss Bang Bang
, most of the Marvel movies (yep, I'm a
geek)...and I think I'll stop there before I go way overboard and
scare everyone away with the length of this list.
, Big Bang Theory
, How I Met Your
, and lots of stuff that's no longer on TV.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
...Actually, I'm hard pressed to THINK of six...
- My iPhone (since having one, I have no idea how people settle for
- Laptop (with internet connection)
- Friends / Family
- Pizza! (has a more perfect food ever been created? I think
....Yeah, I dunno, I'm out. I could probably survive with those 5.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
religion (though I'm not religious at all)
and my various nerd-tastic hobbies.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
hard to say.... the gym, a comedy club, out with friends, or
sometimes just chilling at home with a good movie or videogame.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
This is kinda hard cause I don't really keep that much private.
Pretty much whatever ya ask I'll answer, but I guess the idea of
this is to post something silly and semi-embarassing so.... I
suppose the fact that I still, on occasion, play a trading card
game (sorta like Pokemon cards with less children and more socially
awkward nerds lol).
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
...you want to, I guess.
Life's too short to let other people decide if you should do
anything. If you wanna do something (messaging me or whatever else)
go for it! You never know what could come of it until you try,
right? ; )
Who are you looking for?
This helps us know who to show you on OkCupid.
