Hi. I'm Tyler. or Tyco, to my family. I'm quirky. I've been described by others as "eccentric", "strange", and "odd", which, apt as they may be, are less fun to say than quirky. I like to think I defy description. Also, I invented the avocado. Thank me later.
(by the way, I have a tendency to type -waaay- too much. Don't feel obligated to read everything.)
I'm a city kid who can ride horseback, and knows more about camping than most scout masters. I'm a Shakespeare buff, and a Sci-Fi geek. I play Chess, and go to raves. I'm a recovering corporate slave, with bohemian sensibilities. I'm a hopeless romantic, and an analytical pragmatist. I'm a good listener, who often talks too much. And most of all, while I enjoy the familiar, I'm always looking for new people, places, and experiences.
I'm looking for a partner in crime. An intelligent, independent woman who is as sick to death of the status-quo climate in which we live as I am. Someone to curl up with on the couch in front of a video, and someone to wander through the river valley with on a warm summer evening. Someone to meet with for Coffee or drinks and conversation. Y'know, boyfriendy stuff.
I love the theatre, whether I'm acting, directing or just watching. I'm a writer. Seldom published - it's more for myself because I just dig playing with words. The best way of putting it, I read on the profile of someone who calls herself Zhasminka; "I'm constantly tweaking things I write (my constant flirtation with repackaging the written word is almost an obsession)."
Moving on... Umm, I can't decide If I like Gouda or Brie better... I dig monochromatic colour schemes. I love cities - (I'll take the concrete jungle over ones you find in tropical climates any day.) And my jungle has scarier creatures prowling around at night than any tropical jungle could claim. I think archaic slang is hysterical, (you hip to my jive?), I kick ass at Trivial Pursuit, and quickly grow bored of filling out these personality profiles in the traditional sense. Therefore, new approach!
My favorite forms of sensory input!:
Visual: The Rockies, A genuine smile, enormous crowds of people.
Auditory: Laughter, Psy-trance, jazz, purring (girls or cats, they're both good.)
Tactile: Soft warm hands, squishy riverbed mud, kittens, the sun on my skin and a soft kiss.
Olfactory: Fresh ground coffee, freshly cut grass, the smell after rain and lilacs
Gustatory: Salsa, Green tea, Rhubarb, Mashed Potatoes, Diet Cola and Pixie Stix.
okay... back to prose... I'm extremely open minded, and you'll find that I'll often come around to your way of thinking, if you can present a convincing argument. I enjoy having my conceptions challenged, and I don't get offended. Ever. I have things I'm passionate and opinionated about, but I'll never dismiss anyone who disagrees with me.
I -still- find "all your base" amusing. I know, it's over. I don't care.
I just discovered The Weakerthans. I love this music.
Also, piercings and tattoos turn me on to no end. hmm, anything else?... mmm, I've been told I look like Ben Folds. Which I think is mostly just the glasses and the propensity for cool hats. But I like hearing it anyway. Okay, I guess I'm done. Moving on....
I am Absurd!, Intellectual, and a total geek.
