Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm updating my profile for the first time in nearly 10 years, so:
bare with me for a bit.
Nothing makes me doubt a person's sense of humor like a completely
straightforward claim to have a sense of humor. And listing off
every single artist/hobby/food/etc that I enjoy will lead to a
block a text I don't think anyone wants to read... So rather than
tell you everything I am and do: I'll write out the first few
sentences that come to mind. If anything sounds incomplete, then we
can fill out the gaps with an actual human conversation. :)
BTW: The photos and essays are new, but my "questions" are still
culled from 10 years of bored weeknights on the internet. I'm
updating them, yes, but if any of my questions sound
"questionable", keep in mind that I've changed and grown a lot in
the last decade.
I mean, I just saw an answer in there saying it's mandatory that my
match does not like dogs. What the hell, me-from-2004? Dogs are
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Settling into a new job after ditching the tech-world to help-out
my family during a nasty health scare.
The crisis is over now, so I'm having fun in downtown San Jose,
hosting meetups in the South Bay, or exploring the Bay-at-Large at
the mercy of my new and awesome circle of friends.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Dancing too much. Then: singing too loud while I dance too much.
Then: Sleeping in bed because my voice is dead now and my limbs
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Not hiccups. Hiccup. One. Singular. It strikes without warning and
leaves just the same. I barely hear it anymore but it scares the
daylights out of my friends.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
-) An iPod, or some other way to keep my music around.
-) Feet, and enough elbow room to use those feet to dance.
-) Friends who accept my silliness and counter it with their
-) Cold rainy nights wrapped in a cozy blanket.
-) A whiteboard, a notepad... something to store my crazy
-) Literally any food wrapped in warm fresh naan. I'm serious.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The Design of Everyday Things. The little bits and pieces of stuff
we use in our day-to-day life, and all the care and engineering
that went into making them work.
This usually translates into me staring in awe at some random pen,
or cursing the designers responsible for whatever doors, parking
garages, etc that confused me earlier afternoon.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Checking the listings for a good movie, polling around to see who's
available, then (after much deliberation) firing up Rock Band or
Hulu and staying in.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I don't think I'm pretty.
I think I'm a complete badass. I'm lovable, strong and awesome,
that's clear. And I'm _so_ much better off since I started taking
care of myself. But pretty? Me? Not so much.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If anything at all on this page made you smirk: Go for it.
And if you could maybe extend that smirk into something more than a
one-line copypasta, so maybe I can reply to you and we'll actually
hold a conversation? That'd be brilliant.
(This is pretty much what my sense of humor is like. For better or
for worse: there's more where that came from.)
