Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I believe in a world of Positive Good
, where the onus is
on doing Good Things as opposed to merely abstaining from
I like my friends, I like having a few drinks, I like losing myself
in a project or activity.
I've spent a couple years in the Peace Corps and a couple years
teaching overseas and thought I was done but it turns out my most
marketable skill is being willing and able to work in inhospitable
climes. I've got enough stories, now I'd like to be able to build
something before I'm too old.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working, like everyone. Trying to put the years in so I can apply
for a job that pays more. I also do little consulting on the side.
The extra money from that is nice, but mostly I like it because it
keeps me busy and allows to take pride in something I'm good
Do some crabbing. Do some Scrabbling. Do some hiking.
Spending too much time on the internet.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Oh my stars! Verily, 'twould be easier to list the things at which
I am NOT good at, HAHA!
Truly, if I had to narrow it down to but one talent, it would be
Humility. Not since Moses has there been a more humble man on this
fair Earth than I.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My bad haircut.
My dour expression or my goofy smile depending on what kind of day
I'm having. I tend to wear my heart on my sleeve.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Mostly Mysteries. I also like Steampunk and Crosswords
Mostly Comedies. I don't really have any favorites right now. I
tend to find a movie I like and watch it over and over and over
until I find a new movie to like.
Right now I'm following Wilfred, Burn Notice and superhero
cartoons. I like absurd comedy, I like MacGuyver style spycraft and
I like things I liked when I was twelve.
I'll just pick some music from my playlist and give thoughts on the
performers; Jill Sobule (quirky songs about doomed people), Aimee
Mann (I can kinda see how she's emo, but do the kids really listen
to her? Is emo still a thing?), Dr. John (classic funk), t.a.T.u.
(can't understand a word of it, but it's peppy), Bob Marley (not
really a reggae fan, but he's got some good stuff), Righteous
Brothers (another classic group), Bark Psychosis (a newish band
that's got some nice slow music), Rusty Bryant (decent spoken word
jazz), HP Lovecraft Historical Society (I like Lovecraft, I like
old musicals, I like Christmas carols, and I like when things I
like are combined well), Jon Pertwee (poetry spoken over classic
Dr. Who theme music, pretty good)
I'm usually up for anything. I hate sweet potatoes (unless it's
soju) from a two-year period of it being the only thing to eat.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Brain, heart, liver, kidneys, lungs, left big toe. (I don't know
how to answer this)
Seriously, I'm a simple guy. I've lived over two years in the third
world, and I know how to do without.
There's stuff that's important to me, that can't be taken away,
that I'm not sure I can put into words. Talk to me and I'll try.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I'm a worrier.
I'm a big dork and so I spent a lot of time thinking about dork
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I live on a barge halfway between Alaska and Siberia. When I can
get out I avail myself of someone else's cooking, better cell phone
reception, drink some beers and read my books in a place that's not

If you like writing big essays about whatever you're interested
about and don't mind reading essays in return.
There's no realistic chance for any kind of physical romance here,
but I'd like to make some new friends. I'm interested in other
people and will do my best to be interesting in return.
