My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I love the city, but somehow I got convinced to move out here to Aurora. I'm hoping I can find just as much to do and people to meet here, so I'd love to go out and explore!

I took a wonderful vacation in Seattle a while back. One day, I pretty much just walked aimlessly around the city, and it was wonderful, and I found out that I like wandering very much.

I occasionally get drunk in the winter so I can then taste the cold, because it really tastes good.

I grew up in a Christian household, and while I wouldn't say I follow the religion anymore, it still has shaped a good part of who I am today. (Less 'THE GAYS ARE EVIL,' more 'Don't be a dick')

I once cooked up homemade rocket fuel in a hot plate. It turned out to be more of a smoke bomb, though. I need to perfect the recipe.

I like planes and trains, but I'm not fond of automobiles.

Every now and then, I get the urge to move to Iceland.

I should have been a 16th century blacksmith.

I might just be the only person in the entire Chicago Metro that still enjoys cold weather past mid-January.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work in IT sales. I enjoy it and it does a very good job of providing me the money to live comfortably. I might finish my college degree one day, but for now that's not a specific part of my plan, as I would prefer to learn things when I'd like from now on.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Confusing people with my deadpan sarcasm. The only indicator I like to use to let people know I'm not serious is being incredibly over-the-top and ridiculous, which still goes over some heads a little too much.

Being incredibly cynical while holding a very happy and optimistic outlook on life. I don't really understand how.

I cook one MEAN rack of ribs. Seriously, I'll never go out for ribs because they're never as good as mine.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My sometimes-deep laugh. If something's just the right amount of funny, it'll resonate and shake the floor.

I am a Swedish Viking.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Fantasy and sci-fi, especially anthologies. A Song of Ice and Fire > Lord of the Rings, so there. Random science-y books as well. For the most part, I enjoyed the books I was forced to read in high school.
-List: ASOIAF, LotR, The Gods Themselves, Foundation, The Dresden Files, Hitchhiker's Guide, Dune, 1984, Animal Farm, 'Cry, the Beloved Country,' To Say Nothing of the Dog, Uncle Tungsten, 'Surely you're joking, Mr. Feynman,' Flatland, Candide, Machine of Death, Ender's Game, World War Z, Brave New Worlds (That's not a typo), and many more.

Movies: I don't watch many movies anymore, but I'm not a consistently intelligent viewer. I'll watch, and like, just about all the blatant-cgi-fx-action-packed-no-plot movies that Hollywood mass-produces, in addition to brilliantly written meta-comedies. Also, when it comes to movies at least, it seems like Marvel can do no wrong. I've loved everything in the entire MCU since Iron Man.
-List: Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang; Contact; Real Genius; How to Train Your Dragon; The Avengers; The Prestige.

Shows: No TV service, but Netflix galore. I just started watching Arrested Development, The Walking Dead, and American Horror Story. Recently finished the first season of Sense8, which I found to be Awesome. The first two episodes of Black Mirror left me dead inside, but in a potentially good way. I think.

Music: You like a bit of everything? Try me. Interests range from progrock to Nordic power metal to showtunes to neo-classical choral music. You know what they say, the best way to piss off a music hipster is to genuinely enjoy music. I've also recently been increasingly drawn to EDM and glitch hop, like Glitch Mob, Zedd, SomethingALaMode, etc.
-List: Closure in Moscow, Fair to Midland, Nightwish, Epica, Kamelot, Halestorm, Phildel, The Birthday Massacre, The Glitch Mob, Something A La Mode, Mochipet, Ratatat, Paramore, Mae, Tally Hall, Relient K, Sleepthief, Florence + the Machine, Metric, Project 86, The Romanovs, Kimbra, Eric Whitacre, and more.

Food: I can't stand rotisserie chicken, I will never have enough sushi, and I usually prefer getting drunk on hard cider, wine, or vodka. That's about it.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Trees
Alarm clocks - SEVERAL of them.
Bike paths
Occasional late nights
Occasional late mornings
The hypothetical future
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Honeycrisp apples: Genetically engineered to be the *perfect* apple.

The technological singularity, or "DAMMIT When do I get my cyborg implants?"

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Friday nights are my geek-out-with-friends night, consisting of mostly drinking and D&D. Oh, yeah, I'm a TOTAL nerd, almost forgot to mention that.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I've moved around a few times the past year or so and I'm not really sure how long I'll be staying where I currently am or where I'll be going next.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
...I've piqued your interest? Yes, that sounds good.

You wanna go see that #DateMe show that OKCupid is advertising for the Chicago area.

By the way, I have two tickets to the field museum, good any time. I'm just sayin', y'know.

You would like to show me cool places here in the west 'burbs, or if you would like to join me in my endeavors to find cool places.

You think that going to a beercade would be an awesome time!

You wanna talk about tattoos that you want to get, or hear about the tattoos I plan on getting.
