Let me start off by saying that I am terrible at filling out things
about myself, Especially in text. I am much more articulate in
person and these things kinda of strike me as applied narcissism at
best and noetic masturbation at worst. Anyway lets do this thing!
So I am fairly outgoing when necessary but am perfectly content to
just lounge about sucking up oxygen like a sponge. Sarcasm is my
preferred method of communication these days and is also extremely
attractive to me, and my sense of humor can best be described as
twisted. This is probably the case because I have spent the last
ten years cooking in tiny rooms with bearded angry men and things
can get a little dark. I'm not college educated but I read anything
and love inane facts and esoteric ideas. Sometimes I enter a fugue
state of sorts and will obsessively try to learn all I can about a
subject and consider myself to be fairly intelligent. I am a very
loyal person once you get to know me ; one of those people you can
call at 3 am for a shovel and a bag of quick lime no questions
asked. My group of friends is extremely close knit and we have
known each other since grade school, but are accepting of "new
members" as it were. I am a gamer but not in the halo lets go get
some fucking mountain dew sense. I play alot of old school games,
mostly rpgs but my mario skills are strong. Not obsessive about it
but sometimes I need to smoke a bowl and play some chrono trigger
to find my inner peace. Struggling as a recovering workaholic, most
of the withdrawal symptoms have faded,although I am a chef so my
work is important to me, it is my passion because otherwise I
wouldn't do it(the hours are brutal). As such I love to cook for
other people, I consider it one of the best forms of hedonism.
What I’m doing with my life
Right now I am reading,gaming, attempting to quit smoking
cigarettes and basically just trying to keep life interesting. Oh
yeah, and toiling ceaselessly for fun and profit. Sous chef at a
newish local place; keeps me fairly busy.
I’m really good at
cooking, street fighter, listening and arguing. Making things out
of lighters and plastic. No really, I am like a MacGuyver of melted
straws. Its a life skill. I used to be able to beat the original
Mario bros in ten minutes, although I am a little rusty now. Using
the "I" too much when I write. Thats a life skill too! Also I am a
certified knife wielding badass. If a onion is ever talking shit to
you call me. I will make it rue the day it was picked. Or use it in
a roux the day it was picked even. Food jokes are for cool people.
The first things people usually notice about me
My red beard and my height. People say i have a "open" face. Unless
I am at work, people seem to think Im angry when really Im just
listening to radiolab on my headphones zoning out.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Its really hard for me to list all my favorite books. My parents
owned a bookstore and currently I have 3,000 books on my Droid so
its a safe bet to say that I will read pretty much anything. I read
very fast especially when I am bored and sometimes read a book a
day. I really enjoy hardcore scifi and fantasy but also read some
nonfiction. I read Dune like once a year just to ground myself in
reality and although I love books I am not a huge fan of Tolkien.
It has to do with his prose, strikes me as literary diarrhea
sometimes. Unable to get to a point without describing the history
of every rock Frodo comes across. As for movies my favorite guilty
pleasure movie is probably Hackers or Clueless. I shouldnt admit to
the last one more than likely, but I think its cute. I am addicted
to MST3K and rifftrax, thats my lullaby at night these days. Bobs
burgers and acrcher are really the only shows I am keeping up with,
on a whole I dont watch alot of tv. My taste in music can best be
described as either eccleteic or horrible depending on your mood.
Jazz, crappy 90's rock, classical, gangsta rap, video game scores,
dubstep. It really dosent matter to me, I get exposed to tons of
random music at work and I listen to what I like. Food is my
passion of sorts. Some times its a love hate relationship, but it
keeps me whole. I dont have a "favorite" food as I will eat
anything damn near. I do have perfect food though. Tomatoes and
salt, Figs and some sort of salty meat, bread and butter,
doritos(from the freezer) and mountain dew. I love cheese. There, I
said it. In fact one of my favorite quotes is Emerson :"Cheese is
milk's leap towards immortality".
The six things I could never do without
Books, friends,headphones at work, cooking,a sharp knife. Maybe China Delight.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Life, the Universe, and everything. Also my navel.
On a typical Friday night I am
Slaving away so other people can enjoy/ complain about their food
or their life.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I hate to be alone for long periods of time. I like myself but too
much time in my own head and I start to cannibalize myself
You should message me if
You want to see if my grammar and vocabulary is as bad in real life
as it is in text. Or if you just want to hang out, chill, or eat
some food. Im down with pretty much anything. Life is too precious
and short to spend it not doing new things.
