As of April 2015, I am also seeing an amazing lady, so sorry ladies, I'm taken!, but I'm leaving this up to keep up/in touch with other OKC folks and friends, and new friends and pen pals are as welcome as usual. I'm also actively using the site to trade dozens of messages and play constant visitor tag with aforementioned lady (did I mention she's pretty great?), and really throw off site analytics. I'll edit the rest of my profile accordingly some time.
(OKC is no longer showing times on messages, so I'll be including them manually for convenience. Maybe you can do the same.)
Writing something in an interesting way, especially about me... it's like trying to sell myself as a car ("sell a book?" - now for my report on The Left-Behind Cat). I'm a classic '82 model, light grill work, original interior, fresh paint job...
More adjectives: I'm weird, a little intense, but sincere. (Trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly...) It may seem unnervingly disingenuous (almost, but not quite, a good name for a rock band), but it's not a facade. In normal operation, I am usually pretty lighthearted, fun, and funny - once I get over a nervous shyness. ("Funny" also includes terrible jokes, sometimes meant for real, sometimes not.) I'm also generally pretty positive in my outlook; I may be more vocal and specific about negative things and get tense or worried, but revert to a pleasant, easygoing default base.
I am absolutely not kidding about the meta thing. At times I think about things, then go up a level, and so on. For example, writing this paragraph about filling out my profile, and calling attention to it now. I'm aware that I do it, but I love it so. If it doesn't have a lot of parenthetical remarks and prefaces, I probably didn't write it.
Shall we press on?
