My self-summary
According to Myers-Briggs Typology I'm an INTP, which sums up my personality eerily well. I mostly associate with people even geekier than myself, and in that sense I'm the extravert among my group of friends. I value honesty and openness in dealing with others over mutual ego-stroking; as a result I can probably appear acerbic. I'm loyal and dependable, and affectionate in relationships without being clingy.
What I’m doing with my life
I work in San Francisco, but outside of that I spend my free time:

1. Playing badminton.

2. Video games. Yeah, I said it.

3. Doing amateur photography http://orbisterti.us/gallery2/main.php?g2_itemId=18 (not so much lately) .

4. Target shooting. (Single action revolvers, mostly.)

5. Practicing cello. I've been playing for only a couple of years at this point and haven't had the opportunity to practice regularly while I was in SF, hence you probably wouldn't want to hear me play.

6. Making mead and beer.

7. Going to cool concerts in SF.

8. Working on my own Roguelike. http://lostinprobabilityspace.blogspot.com This is more of a long term project.

I’m really good at
belittling my achievements.
The first things people usually notice about me
...people notice me?

The six things I could never do without
1. A set of polarized sunglasses.
2. An emergency food supply, usually consisting of dark chocolate.
3. A set of in-ear monitors.
4. An mp3 player.
5. Internet. (I'm hooked on this stuff.)
6. A computer of some sort. Given my occupation, I'd likely starve without having access to one.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Weltschmerz
On a typical Friday night I am
having a punch bowl at work.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I do have a reflection in the mirror. This is how you know that I'm not a vampire.
You should message me if
* You've been dealing with men on this site who are sending you photos of their penises, and now want something different.
* You weren't immediately spooked by my profile.
* We share music tastes. An uncommon thing, that.
* You don't describe yourself in your profile as "fun-loving" or "easy going". No, you must like filling out paperwork and standing in line at the DMV. Yeah. (<-- also joke)
* You put your punctuation outside of quotes and use the Oxford comma.
* You work in a tech industry and/or are a gamer.

DON'T message me if:
* You're a flake. I thoroughly detest flakes.
* We have a sub 50% match percentage. I don't have much faith in OKC's matching algorithms, but it still helps to be able to agree on some things in life.
