My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Ever had one of those days where everything goes RIGHT? I feel like most days are like that for me. As Kerouac said, "though the flesh be bugged, the circumstances of existence are pretty glorious.” The glass isn't half full - it's almost overflowing, and I sometimes get confused as to how it got this way.

I don't act or look my age. For example, I like to showcase the crazy, and those who stick around will probably be the ones who are equally interesting (or perhaps just plain nuts) :

I carry 3 broken watches with me in my pocket at all times, except when sleeping or showering, I've written 4 full-length novels, the old rubber-suit Godzilla sends chills up my spine, I go running twice a week, I have a deep love for the idea of religion, my spirit animal would be hot green tea, I enjoy moments of sardonic introspection (that means laughing at myself), I've never had a nightmare in my life (at least not that I can remember), and I firmly believe that you can have too much of a good thing. That's me in a run-on sentence.

While I've only gotten a handful of dates from this site, I've made some really great, life-changing friends both near and far. Originally when I joined it wasn't just a dating site, and I keep that in mind at all times.

You aren't a soul with a body or a character off of a TV show or a zodiac sign. You are you, not a metaphor for you. Be that. Own it. No shame. Lao Tzu was wrong : do not flow like water - flow like whatever the fuck you are.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Approaching the achievement of a long-term life goal, which is MEGA exciting for me. I have to ask what defines "doing something with your life?" I'm breathing, which I'm told is a good thing. Everything beyond that is negotiable and dependent on what one qualifies "doing with one's life" as.

I've just finished writing my fourth novel and am currently trying to get published, which is an interesting and somewhat emotionally taxing endeavor, but it's starting to pay off.

The "fun" answer to this question would be "making dreams into realities and vice versa." I do have a job that pays the bills, doesn't rule my life, and rarely bleeds over into my personal time.

My life is defined by me, not by my stuff, my job, where I go, or my social groups.

Also I like flying around in my ninja-powered dirigible. Bring it.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Storytelling! (I'm told I'm better at this in person than in text)

Asking questions. Or maybe I'm not. What is "really good" anyway? Sometimes I ask the wrong questions, so maybe I'm not "really good" at that. Then again, does asking the wrong questions make one "not good" at asking questions?

Don't think this makes me uncertain, just inquisitive. Question the questions, always. Is it the right question? Is it topical? Who comes up with these weird WinAmp visual animations?

I've been told I'm a good listener, but that may just be because I don't enjoy talking about myself (though you wouldn't know it from the length of this profile...)

Causing explosions. (metaphorical ones) (and sometimes real ones)

Escaping explosions. (not really)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My.... shoes? Hell, I don't know. I'm not "other people." I'm me. Meet me in real life and tell me what the first thing you notice about me is, then maybe I'll post it here.

I think it's kinda like saying "don't think of a bear" to someone - the first thing they tend to think of is a bear. You tell me what you notice first, no preconceptions.

This is peripherally related : a dude recently thought I was 21. Seriously. So maybe people notice how young I look? (or maybe that guy was just clueless)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books : As I Lay Dying. Huckleberry Finn. Tripmaster Monkey. Landfill Meditation. Kafka on the Shore. Blood Meridian. Stuff by Kerouac, Murakami, McCarthy, & Faulkner. Poetry by Stevens or Ferlinghetti. I generally like books that manipulate language and shape narratives more than sci-fi / fantasy adventures.

Movies : Aliens. Spider Man 2 (the older one). Big Trouble in Little China. Flash Gordon. Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. Memento. Ghost in the Shell. Leprechaun 4 : In Space. Troll 2.

Music : Course of Empire. Skinny Puppy. The Black Keys. Jurassic 5. Queen. Thievery Corporation. Indigo Girls. Dead Can Dance. Soundgarden. Morphine. Brutal Juice. KMFDM. Ghost Shit.

Foods : stuff that doesn't eat me first, excepting mushrooms. I only consume 4 kingdoms, and 2 of those are not by choice. As a foodie, I'm pretty easy to please. I do have to say that I was exposed to Frito Pie only a few short years ago and still think it's a stroke of genius. On another note, is "Frito Pie" supposed to be capitalized?

Madagascar Vanilla Red tea. Oh baby, show me the love. Actually if it's any sort of actual artisan hot tea or rooibos, PUT IT IN MY CUP!
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
The idea that love is infinite and eternal. I don't know that I really need much else.

Man, I just realized that sounds really corny, but I'm just gonna own it. I could list 6 material possessions, but they'd all be lies because I'd find ways to live without those things. Most humans are survivors, and I'm no exception.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Music, language, dreams, the day's events, girls, the universe and its relation to science and religion, shutting up and falling, weird existential / epistemological / phenomenological crap that's probably a waste of time.

I recently spent about 10 minutes in my kitchen trying to figure out how to translate into text the sound a plastic tupperware container makes when it opens and closes. Man, that sentence seems really jacked-up now that I read it.

Also a lot of time is spent pondering where I'm gonna go next in my blimp that's powered by ninjas on bicycles.

What?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Trying to figure just how much Jell-O it takes to protect a human being during atmospheric re-entry. If you think you can help, you like the taste of burnt grape Jell-O, or you have access to a rocket ship then I could use your help.

This is of course all so I can attract hot nerdy girls with glasses who ask what I'm doing with all that Jell-O. Hasn't worked yet, though I'm somehow convinced it will someday.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
It pains me to admit it, but I've never been to the moon.

Unless of course I have and I just don't remember it. After all, absolutely anything is possible in an infinite universe, is it not?

Here's an interesting tidbit that's relatively private : I wasn't physically attracted to any of the three women I fell madly in love with, at least not at the beginning. With them it was always charisma, confidence, companionship, and sense of humor. Of course later they became "hot" to me because, well, that's just how it happens.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
What am I supposed to say here? "If you're cool?" Bah. Do what you like. I will say though that if you have an imagination that can rip the ass off of reality or if you carry 3 broken watches in your pocket at all times, I will DEFINITELY want to talk to you. Finally, if you can answer the rhetorical question "what more can a guy ask for?" you win the prize. (hint : it's from one of the movies listed above, you probably can't google it though, hee hee). Even if you can't answer it, you're guaranteed to have something to talk to me about.

Seriously though, if you've somehow made it through this entire wall of text, why NOT message me? Obviously you found something of interest. Or you just wanted to see where all that rambling led to.

I know lotsa people regard this as a dating site, but I'm here to meet people in general. If it turns into something more, yee-haw. If not, it's not like anyone's lost anything.
