To put it very simply: geek + Jackass = Me.
Even though I'm more the brooding intellectual type, I enjoy almost everybody, so whether you're into dick jokes or Fermi problems, I can dig it. The important thing is that I'm always looking for a laugh, even if it means I'm the butt of the joke. My shamelessness only adds to this, and the list of things I'm comfortable doing for the sake of comedy is almost infinite.
I live on my own... with a bonus three roommates! I figured if splitting the rent two ways saves money, why not go for four? In spite of having a house jam-packed with people, I've somehow wound up with a whole floor to myself. So, if I invite you to see my basement, don't freak out: that's where I keep all the cool shit.
I tend toward the philosophy "If it's worth doing, it's worth overdoing." If I'm writing a blog post or doing a research paper, I'm probably not eating or doing anything else until it's done. If I'm in the mood to watch cats on YouTube, then I'm'a watch every fucking cat jump into every fucking box that site has.
I try to enjoy art, but I feel like I'm missing that part of my brain. I get that creative human expression is important... but when I see The Scream I don't think or feel anything other than "There's a dude. He's screaming." Maybe you can show me the error of my ways?
"Philadelphian," for me, is as fundamental to my identity as "geek" or "heterosexual." I don't want a house with vinyl siding and a perfectly-manicured lawn surrounded by a white picket fence in a cul-de-sac: I actually prefer to interact with other human beings.
I'm on here because I'm looking to expand beyond the sausage fest that is my group of friends. There's nothing like shooting the shit with your buddies, but I need a dose of estrogen in my life or I'm going to start thinking Fast and Furious is quality cinema. On a related note: bonus points if you can hang with a bunch of foul-mouthed, flannel-wearing, beard-loving dudes.
