Mostly happy, somewhat sleepy, terribly funny. I will probably confuse you (I was once told that I have about 75% of a conversation with the remainder occurring in my head). I'm usually kind but i don't try to be nice. Nearly infinite capacity for snark, miniscule capacity for mean (which is generally unused). Oh yes, and I sometimes type incomplete sentences and put periods at the end of them.
Exactly one dog I have ever met didn't like me, and that wasn't my fault (good story though, if you want to ask). I have yet to meet an unfriendly cat, guinea pig, hamster, horse, ferret, or other mammal commonly kept by humans.
I am not currently boyfriend material. I am available as a fun date or a pretty awesome friend. If you have fun on our first date, let's have a second date, and so on. Also, I'm not bitter and I didn't date for a loooong time to ensure that I'm being fair.
I'm emotionally stable and capable of checking my baggage although, by now, my remaining baggage fits neatly in the overhead compartment.
I'm not saying never again, just not now.
I'm trying to rebuild a social life as many of my friends are now parents and super-busy. I have been rebuilding through volunteering and finding different interest based groups to check out. So far, so good.
making people feel comfortable, safe and special
being a kick-ass uncle
seeing the absurd in the familiar (which should totally be a word in German or Sanskrit or something)
ridiculousity (also making up words)
Hijinks (with occasional shenanigans thrown in for good measure)
Making chicken soup in a pressure cooker, from scratch
Making homemade pizza also from scratch (except the sauce, I don't boil the tomatoes down but I do combine ingredients)
Wearing interesting socks
Sticking it to the man. Really.
The aquarium with fake jellyfish, Super Grover, and Gary the Mold-A-Rama lion on my desk at work.
**Update: Alphonso the Mold-A-Rama gorilla now inhabits my desk as well.
2. Caddyshack, Casablanca, The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus, Wet Hot American Summer and more that I don't feel like typing now.
3. The Simpsons (still), Buffy, Dr. Who (original and re-boot), edit: had to remove Sherlock as series three makes baby Jesus cry, cough Downton Abbey cough, Nature, Brooklyn 99. The League (which is as close as I get to fantasy sports). I dislike anti-heroes in television.
4. If it's good, I'll listen. Favorites change from hour to hour. I tend to like music but don't really care enough to differentiate that like into taste.
Exceptions: Tilly and the Wall is awesome. So is The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald.
5. I will only eat things that were once alive, like plants and animals. And salt, it's a rock we eat, how crazy is that?

3. Lightning and Thunder
4. Thermal underwear
5. The printed word
6. Parenthetical statements
Death and the nature of consciousness and how they interact
The nature of time
Why people get worked up about the Oxford/serial comma. If it makes the sentence easier to understand, use it; if it doesn't, don't. Don't use punctuation for style, use it for clarity.
Eating rocks and how crazy that is.
Why so many people misunderstand the "most private thing you'll admit" question. It's not asking your most private thing. It's asking for the most private you'll admit. The answer to that can not logically be, "it's too private" if you answered any other questions!
Why does Vivaldi's Spring Concerto make me weep like I'm at a puppy funeral?
I recently got my first tattoo, I love it and I am considering how long before my next one and the next one and the one after that...
I dislike giraffes due to childhood trauma.
Your list of six things includes something I haven't seen in a list before. Or, you've watched the video I have at #2 and it moved you.
You are poised on the precipice of world domination and need a good henchman. I'm pretty damn loyal, strong and smart. I also have no interest in ruling anything larger than a city so I'll not stab you in the back or betray you. Just don't remove my brain for use in a robot body.
You feel like it. Go ahead, I'm respectful and can hear "no", "never mind", and " I'm not interested". No one owes me anything, attention included, but I do appreciate communication.
You don't think it's edgy to describe yourself as un-PC. C'mon really? Saying you're un-PC in 2015 is utterly meaningless. Unless you're just trying to say you're a rude jerkface.
One thing: human sexuality and gender expression exist on a continuum as far as I can tell. So why, oh why, do people think their personalities can be distilled by the revelation of four dichotomies? What I'm saying is Briggs Myers is nonsense. Of course, I realize that I have my birth sign on my profile and the two things are equally scientific but I like the thought of people knowing when my birthday is.
