My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hahaha. Wow. So like, the other day (okay, actually it was a few months ago), I was reading the xkcd forums, and a thread popped up about OKCupid, so I went to look at some people's profiles. As it happens, I had a profile here years ago, and I figured it would have been deleted from inactivity, but apparently OKC keeps these things around FOREVERRRRRR. So naturally, after looking at a few pages, the OKC mailer logic springs to life, and decides to start emailing me stuff again. So then I have to come back and redo my ANCIENT profile from scratch. \o/ So here goes.

I am mary, quite, and contrary
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Just about done my current job at a games company downtown called Bitcasters. After this is done I plan to take some time off, find a place for myself and work on personal projects for a few months. If I can make a business out of it, great; if not, back to work for me.

I don't really like "stability" in these things. Mixing it up is fun. I have a few years of savings so I'm not worried.

Oh, and I suppose I should mention that I'm currently in an open relationship.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.

Programming; it's my job, after all. Oh, and all the related skills that you would expect given my degree - especially mathematics of various sorts. In high school I used to write and do well on all the math contests, and got to go down to PA a few times as part of Ontario's delegation to an American math competition.


Go, the board game. I'm rated 1k on KGS.

Music games such as ITG, DDR, DrumMania, etc. Sadly, I only ever get to play GH/Rock Band at other people's parties so I haven't really gotten used to the interface :(


Kissing. Or maybe it's just that everyone I've ever kissed was able to make up for my gross ineptitude. Or I just enjoy it so much that I don't notice anything wrong. - Nah, it's me, for sure.


Making my friends laugh. It's not all geek humour, either.


Cutting myself off from drinking (and in general, exhibiting self-control).


Not being disturbed or shocked by things.


Confusing people. I like to make statements that seem completely out of my character, but are actually quite consistent with my beliefs - once you stop making the usual inferences.

The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I really don't know, because I'm me, not "people". But here are some educated guesses.

That I'm skinny.


That I like to move with a certain grace and dramatic flair when I try to cut through crowds or open doors for people.


That my wardrobe is hilariously out of date. Actually, it consists almost entirely of hand-me-downs.

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I don't really do books or movies. Or TV. I do almost all my reading on the internet now.

As far as music goes, I'll listen to damn near everything. I kind of have a soft spot for classical (in particular, anything by Chopin, Satie or Debussy) but my clock radio is set to 104.5, I envy my friend's collection of experimental stuff, I get tunes from 80s video games stuck in my head, I drool over turntablism vids...

As for food, whatever. I'm not vegetarian. I don't care if you are as long as you don't care that I'm not. I appreciate the finer things, when I feel I can afford them. I wish I had more of an appetite because I really enjoy eating, despite appearances.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.

This question sucks. For the geeks among us, the temptation to list basic necessities of life is too high. And for everyone else, a simple yes/no question "Are you obsessed with sex/your physical appearance/your social status?" would provide about as much information. Oh, and the jokes people make about "counting skills", "sarcasm" etc. are lame.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Everything.

I compose short stories, poems etc. in my head and never get to write them.

I think for thinking's sake. I practice thinking in other languages. I can hear myself talking to myself - in other languages.

I do long multiplication, simple numerical integration, etc. in my head to relieve boredom.

And of course, I spend lots of time thinking about how I got to where I am now, and wondering how I escaped with so few regrets.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Sigh, Funland is dead now. So the only regular outing I get is UTARPA once a month. I hate myself for staying at home and being anti-social, but I hate clubs even more (uninteresting, drunk people; smoky air; loud repetitive music - ugh).
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Okay, first off, for anyone who was stalking me, actually I lost my virginity a couple years ago. Yeah, the profile's THAT old.

Anyway. Best I can think of at the moment: I used to be a "nice guy". I really think I'm recovering from that now, and not simply turning into a jerk.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You think of intelligence (and in particular, being really good at something intellectual) as a positive trait; don't smoke tobacco (pot's OK but I probably won't join you); are OK with the open relationship thing; and think you'd look good next to me in a picture.

Oh, and if you think you're "fluent in C++", you're going to have to prove it.
