OK, it's 2015, time to update the old profile (not on as often as I used to be). I currently work night shift, and my evenings are generally taken up sleeping or taking care of my son (he's 6) so for the most part my only free time is during the day (not really the best situation for getting out and meeting people). Currently living in Oak Ridge, but looking to move to the West Town Mall area soon. My goal for this year is to try to get myself back into shape (at 6'1 and 260 I could stand to shed a few pounds).

T-shirt: Be Nice to me or I'll sic my ninja monkey's on you.

I'm notorious for spouting random song lyrics, movie quotes, or really bad puns. It's infectious.too.

I have a strange sense of humor. I like Epic Rap Battles of History and Oxhorn videos.

I love comedy and comedians: George Carlin, Dennis Leary, Robin Williams, Jeff Foxworthyand Lewis Black rank among my favorites. A friend of mine turned me onto Jeff Dunham a few years ago. "Silence....I keel you". HA!

Bumper sticker: Do not meddle in the affairs of Dragons, for you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup.

I'm grew up a GAMER Whether it is card games (anything from Spades to Uno to Magic:The Gathering) to board games (anything from Monopoly to Chess to Clue) to RPG's (D&D, Vampire:The Masquerade, Shadowrun). From computer/console games (particularly Civilization III & IV for my computer and Final Fantasy X on the Playstation2) to math puzzles (Cross Sums, Sudoku).While I've largely grown out of that lifestyle since I hit 30, especially now that I have a 4 year old to help raise, if it's a game I might be willing to play it from time to time.

I have an interest in personality systems, and am a big fan of the Enneagram. I am a Type 5 with a very strong 4 wing, otherwise known as an Iconoclast (which is where the icon part of my name derives from). While not absolute, I do fit my profile very well (both the good point, and, unfortunately, the bad points as well).

I am very opened minded about a lot of things. While there are some things that are just not right for me, or that I am just not into, it doesn't mean I think they are wrong for everyone. Conversely, there are some aspects of my life that work for me that would clearly not work for everyone else. The trick is to find those people for whom life works in harmony with each other.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm an overnight stocker for Kroger. It's not the most glamorous job in the world, but I enjoy what I do and I'm really good at it (although now that I'm in my 40s it's not quite as easy as it used to be).
Raising my son. I was fortunate enough to be able to be a stay at home dad for about a year and a half (the one upside to being out of work) and even working full time again I am still very active with my kid.

Other than that there isn't a whole lot going on these days.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Math, I tend to have a good head for numbers.

Being a parent and dealing with kids.

Being a smartass.

The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm tall (6'2).

One of my best friends described me thus: "You're like a giant freaking Teddy Bear unless someone actually manages to piss you off, then it's like running into a rabid Grizzly." A few of my other friend agreed, so I went with it.

Intelligent conversation




Quality Friends/family
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
There isn't enough space to cover it all, and if there was nobody would read it. Just pretend there are 30 paragraphs here and say TL:DR heh
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Working, Unfotuntately. One of the pitfalls of being on third shift.

I originally joined the site when they were actively advertising their "10,000+ tests" as a way to keep track of all the cool tests/quizzes I found and dating was a sort of "another service we offer" kind of thing. I started actively using the site when they introduced journals (which is seems they've finally done away with completely now, which sucks because I had some cool stuff I'd posted over the years). Made a few really awesome friends here (although not really had much luck at dating).
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You feel like it. One of my best friends, whom I met on this site, originally messaged me with a question about a book (George Orwell's 1984) and I've known her almost 9 years now.
