I love animals (well mammals mostly and cats especially) and am
thinking about ways of incorporating more of them in my life, have
a good/broad sense of humor and know an amazing catalog of nearly
useless trivia (the keyword being nearly). I can hold up my end of
a conversation rather well if I do say so myself and I can help
with computer problems, and recommend movies and scifi/fantasy
books with the best of ‘em. Oh yeah, and I really like going to
festivals/geeky conventions and want to do a lot more traveling. I
tend to keep up with world affairs, politics, economics, etc.. and
find it interesting.
Also, I'm not a fan of short term relationships, and that's not
what I'm looking for here. What I am looking for is someone who is
caring, understanding and has time or makes time to spend with
someone special. Honesty is important to me and I appreciate a high
level of self awareness in a person. Mind you, no one is flawless
and I'm mature enough to embrace the quirks in a person.
I want to share my life with someone. Sorry to get all heavy, but I
think this matters enough to be stated plainly.
What I’m doing with my life
Trying to find the best way to live my life with integrity AND
enjoyment. Trying to overcome any internal hitches I find along the
way. I know this is vague, but I'm not gonna go into a dissertation
on it here. Leaves a little mystery ya know? :)
I’m really good at
listening to people and understanding where they are coming from.
At work, I often end up translating between technical
concerns/people and non-technical people. I'm also really good at
working with computers, we seem to be on the same wave length
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm not sure, maybe a Cheshire cat like grin I get from time to
time. I've been told it's my blue eyes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: don't really keep track.. I like scifi mostly, especially
with a detailed setting, likable well rounded characters and an
interesting plot I can't figure out until the end
Movies: so many.. silly comedies like "Young Frankenstein" or "Kung
Pow Enter the Fist" or MST3K, horror with a scifi twist like
Pandorum or The Cabin in the Woods, Rock musicals like Shock
Treatment or Rock and Rule, Foreign movies like Juan of the Dead or
Funky Forest, I can go on. In the past year, of the big movies, I
liked Elysium, The Croods, and Oblivion.
Music: I tend to be attracted to music with interesting lyrics,
usually backed up by some kind of rock or pop. I also like passion
in my singers. And often you can hear me listening to comedy/parody
songs mixed in to my playlist.
Food: This is a toughie. I have lots of rules about the food that I
eat, mostly for health reasons. Still Skydottir cookies are up
there. I love nectarine's and peaches, Synergy Third Eye Chai..
Olivia's Superfree Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough cupcakes. OK I
realize that doesn't sound all that healthy but moderation is key
The six things I could never do without
Air, water, food, shelter (unless I'm in a place with REALLY nice
weather).. let's see that's four.. OK the internet and a way to
access it, to keep me from getting bored. And well, someone to talk
to. I could get that on the internet, but it's not the same.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
World affairs, the nature of man and society. The future of this
country and sometimes all the way up to the species. And I guess,
what is the best path for me in it. Oh and where can I find more
things to enjoy.
On a typical Friday night I am
Slinking out of work disturbingly late, trying to decide if I want
to do something or rest up for Saturday. Start making all kinds of
wild plans for Saturday that are fairly unrealistic :) Trying to
let the whole no work tomorrow thing sink in.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I think some of my answers to the questions are private enough...
Check'em out, there's some winners in there :)
You should message me if
Um.. you have a pulse?? Electronic will do :) I think this has been
covered in about 8 different ways above, but here are some things I
may have left out: if you have an appreciation for fantasy(scifi)
in books and movies, if world affairs and the future on a grand
scale interests you, if you don't think long term monogamous
relationships are passé, if you think living in another country
might not be such a bad idea after reading up on current
Thinking about this topic, I wonder, do many women ever message men
on here? Well I can tell you I will always respond (eventually) and
unless you insult my lineage, I'll even be polite about it. :)
