My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Not your usual, but nice.

I have an amazing life full of awesome friends whom I love greatly. I am looking for an awesome partner, not a provider, to share my awesome life with. It would be helpful to hate the same things I hate (not that I have them listed here, but ya know...).

I like to make things, often involving wool or food. I also tend to buy amazing cheeses to share with my friends. I kind of have a reputation, ifyouknowwhatimean...

I am easily amused and pretty loyal to people in my life that have earned it. My closest friends are better to me than family.

I have a cat. He's pretty terrible to everyone on the planet but me. I love him anyway. Dogs are superior. Shared evolution with the human species is pretty damn hard to beat in a companion!

Every time I see an old, abandoned anything, I desperately want to go inside. Preferably with a camera. I'm sure it won't be nearly as cool once I actually go into one. I've built up so much excitement over several years that now I just watch the sides of the road with glee every time I'm a ways outside the city.

Random things about me: hyperbolic; unabashed devil's advocate; don't want kids; believe in one fewer god than most people; bad at lying; often (and ineffectually) attempt to apply logic to human relationships; sometimes a quiet talker; likes the sleep.

Left to my own devices, I'm inclined to stay in and hang out, but I love to go on adventures! Adventure me!

I am human, of the, and year.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
gamification to promote incremental gains in productivity (via habitrpg).

I'm a product manager, learning about user experience and design on the side (oh and wev dev/css too, apparently?) and incorporating that into my job description as much as possible.

Otherwise, I go rock climbing, blues dancing, or couching (that's a sport, right?) as much as possible/motivated.
I help run a monthly blues dance to feed my addiction.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Learning. Listening. Laughing at inappropriate things/times.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have no idea. I hope it's my hot-librarian-glasses or winning smile (those things cost a lot of money!).

Let's be honest. It's my smoking rack and/or amazing ass. But if your first message to me is "your beautiful" or a variation on that grammatically horrifying theme, you haven't haven't been paying attention to the right things here, and it's insta-delete for you! (Obviously, this doesn't mean that that sort of comment is never allowed ever, but seriously... it's a terrible opener and you should be ashamed.)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Ken Follett's Pillars of the Earth is number 1, followed closely by any Douglas Adams book. Scalzi is my newest love, also Brust. Slowly getting back into the reading habit in 2013, 3-pages-before-I-fall-asleep at a time. Sigh.

Movies: Amélie, LOTR, and most of the comic book/nerd reboots of late: Superman, Batman, Star Trek - they were all amazing.

Music: pretty much anything. Quick but very incomplete list: Coldplay, Weezer, Ben Folds, Regina Spektor, Jason Mraz, Band of Horses, System of a Down/Scars on Broadway, Silverchair, Weird Al, Muse, Avenged Sevenfold, Barcelona, Stephen Lynch, Dresden Dolls/Amanda Palmer, Vienna Teng, Elbow, Christabel and the Jons, Blair Crimmins and the Hookers, Mumford and Sons, Avett Brothers, most of what pops up on the awesome dubstep Pandora station that I took over from a friend.

Food: I'll try any food at least once. I am an omnivore. I also drink. I could eat sushi pretty much every day and not get bored.

TV: Shows I have enjoyed (off the top of my head and in no particular order): Firefly, Bones, NCIS, House, Dollhouse, Grey's Anatomy, Mythbusters, Doctor Who, Torchwood, Psych, Game of Thrones, Community, Arrested Development, Dexter, Misfits (before it started to suck), Sherlock, Elementary, DaVinci's Demons, Continuum, and some other things.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
tea, machine wash/tumble dry low, high speed internet, laughter, friends and the Oxford comma.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
sleeeeep. I like it a lot. I get cranky without enough. Ditto food.

Also: Are most of you guys REALLY 6 feet tall? I find it hard to believe that so many of you are [literally] above average!
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
ideally dancing blues. Or being a classic cocktail snob in my friend's basement bar. Or drinking scotch or classic cocktails. Often these all happen at the same time.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I secretly (NOT SECRETLY) look forward to NPR pledge drives. I mean come on, they play their best stuff and a bunch of awesome people have to beg for their jobs for two weeks. When else can you get so informed AND feel so guilty at the same time? This year: cornerstone society. Wheeeee, NPR nerd. Yes I am.

Less seriously (or more seriously?), I just had to move my scotch collection into a cabinet. It was finally too large to line up along the back of the kitchen counter. So sad. 14 bottles of single malt is NOT too many for one person to have, I don't care what anybody says.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
... you don't take yourself too seriously

... you are literate

... you want to go blues dancing or rock climbing or geocaching or drink yummy scotch and smoke cigars with me. Ideally, all of the above and mostly at the same time or in a short time span

... you treat people well because it's the right thing to do and not because of the promise of some tasty sky cake when you die

I'm pretty -ist about what area of town you live in. If it's not inside the perimeter or on the north east corridor (Ptree-Indust through 85 ish), I probably can't be bothered to go there... Sorry. I live in Norcross and work in Midtown, so location-judge away! I shall not be offended.
