That is, normal defined relative to myself.
I'm pretty sure that's what everyone else does too.
Relative to most people, I'm-- well, me.
Internally I'm a Punk. Externally I'm a Suit.
I'm a reliable sort, who just happens to like to do strange things and meet interesting people.
I get the honor of having the rarest personality type. The simplest way to imagine me is as an absent-minded professor. It's wrong, but it'll do until you've spent enough time to get a sense of me. Just imagine I think backwards and end up very normal from the other side.
My puppy-dog eyes are hilarious. Apparently this is not the point of puppy-dog eyes. So I'm going to have to practice.
I grew up in the Midwest, but I've spent almost half my life on the East Coast.
I'm trained as a scientist and a performer. I'm probably a lot more the performer now because I'm employed as a technical manager for hospitals. So I create a lot more than I discover. I get called professor without irony, even though it's not accurate.
I'm a geek, and I spend too much time with machines, but I need people. So I like to do things that are active and participatory.
It's actually kinda odd to admit that my shit is pretty much together. I've got friends, a good job, good opportunities for the future and lots to do. --Damn, I think I've become an adult. I'd just prefer to have someone to share it with.
I count as a Discordian, Zen Atheist from a Jewish perspective, or maybe a Secular Humanist Jew with an odd sense of humor. We need Discordian as a religious choice so that I can be quite serious and laughing about it at the same time.
Goal for 2013: Kill zero or fewer people. [I do medical decision making software.]
I was married once, long ago. That's how I ended up in NYC with nothing but what fit in my car. In the end it was good for me, but if I get married again you're probably stuck with me.
So nope, not pure, not perfect, not without (literal) scars. But I'm largely housebroken, and I know lots of stuff. [Note: Literal scars are not from past relationship, nor knife fighting, but I'm willing to pretend if it makes for a good story.]
