Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm an unashamed nerd, but not in a creepy way--or at least I'd
like to think so. I'm not the type to spend 20 hours a day on the
computer playing WoW (in fact, I don't play that at all).
I guess you could call me a bit of a pessimist by nature, which I
express via a sarcastic/sardonic sense of humor. I try not to be
mean-spirited about it to people's faces, though, and I'm always
fast to apologize if I hurt or offend someone I care about.
I really need to get more recent pictures of myself, as well as
pictures taken by other people. The most recent pic on here is a
year old and in no way does justice to my current, nigh-Adonis-like
I'm told I give great backrubs.
I am tall, nerdy, and loyal
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Trying to break into the wild, wonderful world of becoming a
writer. I'm also finally making some kind of dent in my backlog of
books--I'm on kind of a classical literature kick right now. I'm
waiting for the weather to warm up so I can start riding my bike
again. I probably spend too much time on the computer--thankfully I
don't spend nearly as much time on the bus now that I live
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Staying mellow, rolling dice with more (and on occasion less) than
six sides, listening, being brutally honest (probably too good at
that, actually), being around when I'm needed and gone when I'm
not. I have a knack for saying the right thing at precisely the
right moment, often after a period of silence. Three years of
Portland life has also made me something of a public transportation
ninja--long as I can get downtown, I can get pretty much
I'm also pretty good at cooking, but I don't get to make
complicated stuff very often. Baking is kind of my
specialty--especially my chocolate chip cookies.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My freakish height--it's hard to keep a low profile when you're a
head taller than everyone around you! Also possibly my lack of
fashion sense. And my premature, horribly unfair male pattern
baldness which makes me look older than I really am. And how I can
never figure out what to do with what little hair I have left. And,
if I'm wearing shorts, the way my leg muscles flex with each step.
But mostly the height.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Music, books, public transportation, my friends/fellow nerds, and
the Stairmaster at work. And water, I suppose.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Bizarre hypothetical situations, all too often. And sex. Not at the
same time as the hypothetical stuff. Usually. Also, do I look
better with hair or without? With my genes, I'm hoping "without".
