Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
First, a disclaimer:
I can talk ad infinitem about many things. One thing I cannot do is
write a decent email that is not, in some way, tech or job related
(unless your first email is directly asking me a computer question
or about what it takes to be a reference/systems librarian, my
emails will tend to peter out).
This means that I much prefer chatting to emailing (either with a
chat program, over the phone, or in person).
Second, the shameless self promotion:
I'm strange, weird, funny, teddy bear, and philosopher. A little
bit of warrior in there somewhere. Most of the time I enjoy simple
things. I love reading, I try writing from time to time (I have
more story beginnings than I care to admit), and I'm an avid video
gamer. And while I admit that seems to be a bit of a deal breaker
for some, I will say that the reasons I have for playing most games
primarily deal with plot and story. I love a good story, no matter
the form (book, movie, game) and I can be rather picky about
At the moment, I'm still searching for someone to help me try and
find new experiences and explorations.
Kind of a side note, I love to cook, but I hate cooking for myself;
if that makes any sense at all.
Speaking of food: I need crockpot recipes. Just a small point I'd
like to throw out there. Crockpots are awesome.
All that said, I'm always looking for friends.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm enjoying my new life as a Librarian.
Trying like mad to get in shape. It's slow going... :(
Looking into starting broadsword lessons.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Poker (funny story, that), debates, making people laugh, being a
, daydreaming. You know, the usual.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Two words: Teddy Bear. If that doesn't work, think of it like this.
You know the movie Monsters, Inc.? you know Sully? there's a reason
my nickname is Kitty (damn that movie!!! Although it is one of my
favorites, next to Finding Nemo).
Also, apparently my sense of humor is best described as "Archer."
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
My favorites, huh? Well, I can't really refine some of them, but
here it goes. a) For books, I'll just say that Robert Heinlein
much ass. b) Movies are a grab bag. c) One really, really cool band
They stand at the top of the list. d) I dunno, all sorts of
I should add here that Hunter S. Thompson
is one of
my literary heroes. Just saying...
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
First off, I don't feel this can truly be quantified, because I'm
pretty sure I can come up with a list easily longer than six of
things that are biologically required for life to continue.
However, should I be forced to name those things that I would miss
greatly (family and friends are a given) should they no longer be
available to me:
1. My Motorcycle (2001 Honda Gold Wing GL1800)
3. Really good beer
5. The ability to count
G. A sense of the ironic
E. If you get the numbering for this one, I will love you forever.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Motorcycles. I can't help it. There is something very liberating
about riding; it's also highly intoxicating.
Isn't having a collective noun for hermits a little bit of a
contradiction in terms? (It's an "observance" of hermits.)
Can a depressed introvert really help bring about a positive change
in the world?
So, yeah, that's something else I think about.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I wish I could say that I was one of those "cool" people who always
has a plan to go out of Friday nights, but, really, I'd be just as
happy (probably happier, truth be told) riding over to Kelly's on
the Beach and getting a large roast beef sandwich, or lounging
around with friends and shooting-the-shit.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I can't really think of anything. I tend to be rather blunt. Just
ask and I'll probably tell you.
I dream of one day summiting Chomolungma (Everest. Chomolungma
sounds nicer and translates to Mother Goddess of the Earth. Better
than some stuffy Englishman's last name).
There are two things I will not get rid of: my bike and my
And, for the truly curious, ask me about my Harley Rant.
However, if seriously pressed, it would be that I am fairly
intimidated by people who have traveled extensively. I'm not sure
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're interested in making a new friend. No fuss, no bother, just
a friend. I've got that down pat, it seems.
I would also accept you are looking for someone to go on motorcycle
rides with. (Listen, if you ride and wrench your own motorcycle,
I'm probably hooked already.)
Also, if you're a lover of riddles. Can't get enough of them. So I
will present a simple one here:
The man who builds me has no need for me;
The man who buys me does not want me;
The man who uses me has no idea I'm being used.
Especially message me if can glean from my profile what my favorite
Hunter S. Thompson quotation is.
