My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
A few years back I moved from the Las Vegas, Nevada area to Wisconsin. Since I'm mildly socially retarded, I haven't made too many close friendships since moving, which can suck at times.

I write fantasy and science fiction and spend far too much time roleplaying. When I venture outside, I tend to enjoy hiking and gardening and generally running amuck. Someday, I hope to hike the Appalachian Trail. I'm rather sardonic and have the bad habit of playing Devil's advocate no matter what's being discussed. If I really like someone I'll argue with him, because I know he can take it.

I've found that having different views from someone doesn't really get in the way of friendship. Having similar goals and compatible lifestyles seems to matter so much more. I guess I'd call myself a social liberal, though I might sometimes argue from a conservative point of view just to mess with people's heads. I probably have more in common with a sort of...friendly anarchy than either major political party in the US.

I am sadistic, zen, and amused
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Writing, editing other people's writing, trying to figure out where I want to spend the rest of my life, and now illustrating the covers for romance novels. Wut?
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Did I mention writing? I consider myself to be a fairly brilliant cook. Indian and Mexican food tend to be what I do best, though I'm pretty handy with creme puffs and puddings. I'm pretty into theatre, too, and founded the Student Theatre Association at my college. And then had the honor of our very first production being banned.

Then we put it on in the parking lot and ate cake.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My hair, which is fluffy and red, and my eyes, which are big and blue. I think the rest of my is fairly nondescript and I'm probably not speaking when someone first sees me, so my personality (unless you happen to catch a hateful glare) is likely not on display.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.

(D) There are few foods I actively dislike. Things that are bland and mushy generally don't appeal much, otherwise I love trying new things.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I know I should put something clever in here that allows you to understand just what kind of person I am and what makes me tick, but I seriously can't think of a single thing (aside from the basics of survival) that I couldn't do without. So long as I have my own mind, I'm pretty much set to go. Having something to write with and a person to talk to would be a pleasant bonus.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The impending zombie apocalypse.

Or how a body could instantaneously disappear using WWII technology (would a direct artillery shell hit do it? Hmmmm).

Or the Chinese room argument.

Or lots of other random, weird things.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Sitting at home, most likely. I may be roleplaying or reading or watching a movie, but while I like going out well enough, I'm not the type to go wander bars alone. Like I said above, I haven't been too great at socializing since I moved.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Ooh, here's a major private thing: I'm a trans guy. Probably better to have that here than deal with disappointing surprise bigots.
