Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I hate self-summaries, I'm not good at talking about myself
normally, it's almost impossible in just a few sentences. If you're
reading this it is probable that this site has indicated we have
SOMETHING in common...if you're really curious about just what that
might be, go ahead and message me...or don't, that's cool
I am calculating, quiet, and oblivious
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Right now I'm living in Huntsville, AL. I was a contractor at NASA
MSFC for 4 years until the Constellation program was cancelled and
got laid off, but I am back at work in the industry with a new
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I can juggle, and can play games
(video, board, or otherwise) well. I
am good at several sports despite a general lack of athleticism; I
love basketball especially. I also run and bike as my health
allows. I gravitated towards math and science in school, but I
always scored high at all of my academic pursuits.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Probably that I'm being quiet and reserved, which makes it even
harder to notice anything about me! It takes a bit of prodding to
get me to talk, but once I'm your friend I have trouble reigning

books) Fantasy novels, mostly (WoT, ASoIAF, Dark Tower) but I try
to branch out to other fiction and non-fiction. I don't identify
real strongly with particular authors or books however.
film) favorite directors include: Coen brothers, Wes Anderson
, the Flaming Lips
, Super Furry Animals
Sigur Ros, Explosions in the Sky, all sorts of other stuff...I'll
give anything a shot although I stay away from pure pop.
shows) I don't watch much TV but Parks & Recreation is probably
my favorite thing on TV right now.
food) Well, I enjoy food but I don't really have a strong
preference for anything.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Family, Music, Books, Free Will, Games, Philosophy
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I spend a lot of time thinking about nothing. I'm very Zen in that
way, and very not Zen in almost every other sense.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Probably watching a DVD or out with friends at a bar throwing darts
and drinking crappy beer (actually, now that I and most of the
people I know are not graduate students, the quality of the beer I
drink is much higher).
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
In real life, I can be annoyingly close lipped. I think I like to
appear as mysterious as I can, and I don't know why. I like to keep
private things private though.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You have the patience to get through my non-responsiveness and
general suspicion of online interaction--I want to give this site a
better shot than I have in the past, but it's a little hard for me
to pay attention to it. Or if you like any of my favorite bands,
I'd like to meet people who have similar musical tastes. Favorite
bands include: Radiohead, Sigur Ros
, The Flaming Lips
Fleet Foxes, DJ
, the Shins
, Morning Benders, the Strokes,
rock in general.
