Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Little, yellow, different? (ok, well I am NOT little but my hair is
indeed yellow(ish) and I am most definitely different).
I am a curious person by nature in both senses of the word. I love
to learn and there is a good chance if you have a hobby involving
power tools (that I don't know much about), I will be interested in
it. I have a terminal case of gallows humor for which there is
simply NO cure.
I am very much the type to be one of the guys. It is true in my
professional life as well as my personal life.
My headstone (which I won't have since I want to be charred into
ashes and make unsuspecting people sneeze uncomfortably) would
probably read "Nice Shoes" or "Please Hold, I'll be right back". I
have little to no filters and will almost always make some sort of
inappropriate joke. I have been told I deadpan very well; TOO well
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work for a living like a mostly normal adult, but at night, I
become the world's least known superhero who moves EVERYTHING 1mm
to the left -- I don't wear a cape though since it just seems to
get in the way and is yet another thing to put in the laundry.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Defying expectations. I don't look like what I am supposed to look
like (and possibly what you hope I would look like). I work in a
profession that has almost nothing to do with my academic
I excel at being an unconventional geek.
I try to be funny a good deal but with limited success. Any
complaints, please send a politely worded note to our writing
staff. They are a good lot.
I also have an adept talent that very great once in a while, when I
message someone, I do such a piss poor job at it that none has ever
replied. It makes me think my diction is faulty (and my delusions
of cleverness are even more so) ;)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Hmm...my eyes. Other notables are that I always dress in black (I
am in mourning for the intellect of mankind (hand to forehead)),
have really long hair (possibly inapproriately so for my age). I
have a very caustic, twisted sense of humor that is
normally obvious from the beginning of any interaction with me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

a: Siddhartha, anything by Hardy, and far too many to enumerate
here. Please ask!
b: Dr. Zhivago, The Southpark Movie, La Pianiste, 8 Women, Borat,
La Vie en Rose, Man Bites Dog, Blue Velvet, again -- TONS
c: A plethora (remember the 3 Amigos?) of genres and

I am a big metal fan (lots of Death, Thrash, Black, NWOBHM, and
I have re-embraced my love of East Coast Hardcore (oh look, it is
I love old Industrial, Martial Industrial, NeoFolk, Post Punk, and
a bunch more.
I suppose I could list a ton of bands, but let's say it is from
Dvorak to Darkthrone with some DRI and Dusty Springfield thrown

might not get back to you)
d:I love cooking shows! also LOVE documentaries about mundane
things, like hot dogs and construction paper. I watch "How It's
Made" all the time. I never knew making a hockey puck and snow
shoes could be so interesting. I once called this show:
embarrassingly Canadian. I also love Top Gear and have a rather
embarrassing crush on James May and his ridiculous shirts and
Food wise, well, there isn't enough time or space to rant on as I
would like. Suffice it to say, I love everything about food,
particularly cooking. This is also true of beer and
cocktails/spirits, and am interested in learning more about the way
of the grape.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. My laptop 2. My kittens 3. Shower 4. Black Stompy Boots/shoes 5.
Smart Phone (oh yes, tech shackles!) 6. A Bottle of Evian
and here is an unofficial 7. A sense of humor (take that, arbitrary
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The measly processor in my brain is severely overclocked. It is ON
110% of the time and probably needs a rest. It also needs to be
rebooted every so often. An upgrade would be most excellent!
My real (and very spicy) brain was lost in a zombie related
incident. Ninjas and Pirates tried to help, but alas, they were too
Where are the night owls? I seem to attract early birds.

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I can be found going to a show (largely metal these days), out for
drinks and dinner, at the gym, at work, once upon a time at Manray
(which sadly is no more), etc. (Not necessarily in that order and I
am open to new ideas).
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Hmmm...I am VERY shy but you will never believe it. That is about
it, otherwise, if it is plastered all over the internet, it isn't
exactly private any more...
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
and if you have a great disdain for impractical shoes and
(ridiculously overpriced) purses...
Don't mind ignoring the "Falling Rocks" sign.
You know the difference between: Their, They're, and There. :)
Your, yore, and You're (and Ur was a Sumerian city) -- Ok, I will
even go into further detail here: Your is a possessive pronoun,
yore is an imprecise temporal noun, and you're is a contraction of
you and are. So, if you're going to say "you're smart, etc." check
your grammar/spelling. :)
You are over 25. Come on, guys, there are lots of young women here
closer to your age. If I can feasibly be your parent or you are not
legal to drink yet, I am too old for you. If, conversely, you can
feasibly be my parent, I am too young.
