Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Oh no! Look behind you! There's a Yeti!
I'm a shortish white male of the stocky, northern European, get me
a hat if I'm going to be in the sun, variety. I don't like wearing
shoes, and I look really (ok, relatively) good when I get dressed
up in a suit. Why? Because when you spend your days in t-shirt and

I love reading, music, and I like to cook. My banana bread rules,
but only because I can follow the Cook's Illustrated recipe. I can
also prepare an entire Thanksgiving dinner without burning most of
I spend most of my time working, reading subversive websites,
watching movies and reading books.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working towards my eventual escape from this particular tax farm.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Nothing practical. I mentioned the cooking. I still need a recipe
to follow, but I'm getting better about that. A real cook can take
whatever is around and make something edible.
Actually, my code is pretty tight, I read well, and I usually
speaks good too.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have been told that I have pretty eyes. Not in a prison context.
I have squealed like a pig though. Not in a "Deliverance" context.

All of "The Man With No Name" flicks.

the first 15 minutes. *sniff* Such a loss.)
The Godfather movies (except the POS Sophia Coppola directed. She
made it up with her later films though so I'm not going to
The Princess Bride
Better Off Dead

Anything Amanda Palmer does
(pick a genre, there's probably something I like)
Nepalese (holy crap! It's like a combination of Chinese and

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Indoor plumbing (you keep your iPhone and dysentery, I'll keep my
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I think way too much about the economy and politics. It's like a
scab I can't stop picking at. Luckily, thinking about it means I'm
not usually talking about it so that saves people quite a bit of
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Doing the same thing I did on Thursday night. The fun stuff happens
