My self-summary
I'm Mike, but my friends call me"Wiki". The world is too damn interesting to not want to go see whats out there, and to learn whats in it. From that, I've learned to be tolerant of others; that a lot of folks are just getting by; and being petty is a waste of energy. I can be blunt and direct, but also jovial and caring. I don't consider myself a user of people: none of us got to where we are alone, but few succeed at the expense of others.

I'm genuinely interested in making good friends that share my interests, or can show me something that I've been missing out on. I really would like someone to spend time with and go on assorted adventures with: I work on computers for a living; I don't want to spend all my free time on them! I got here a year ago, and still trying to make sense of the place and its people. Its going to take years to see decent portions of LA Metro and California...

Side note: I do live in a place that has a cat; I know some folks have allergies.
What I’m doing with my life
* Been here in California since June 2013: moved out here for the job, and I like the people I work with. I also spent 22 years in Florida, and 8 years in Kansas. So far, so good!
* Trying to get a few miles of hiking in a week to stay somewhat fit. There's a giant hill down the street that helps.
* Randomly going places, and using my camera on anything that looks promising. http://unquietwiki.com/photos/ if you're interested. I also have an Instagram: http://instagram.com/unquietwiki
* Playing modern board games with friends, usually once a week.
I’m really good at
Problem solving, programming, and fixing computers and networks. A few people ask me if I make money from my hobbyist photography. Sometimes I'll crank out a decent essay or opinion on something.
The first things people usually notice about me
Depending on when I last shaved, people call me handsome or rugged.

Also, as an IT guy, I usually get called out as being the person sitting at their desk. :p
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'm an NPR listener and contributor. Otherwise, I listen to really anything that isn't country or religious music: and a 10GB collection to prove it. I've ended up buying albums and random singles because of what I heard on http://www.radio-kol.net/

I've read the books series of Game of Thrones, Dune (the originals, not what his son wrote), Enders' Game (just the original four), and The Lord of the Rings. I also like to read stuff from Peter Hamilton and Alastair Reynolds: I'm not sure the former's really "hard" sci-fi, but the latter is. As a leftist, my bookshelf also has some history and political content.

It'd be easier to say what foods I don't like: sour cream, onions, relish, and shellfish come to mind.

I really don't get to watch TV much these days, though I've seen a fair bit of Archer, Futurama, Adult Swim programs, and Mythbusters. I'll also watch some Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert clips online: even went to their big "Rally for Sanity" back in 2010.

I read xkcd & Questionable Content regularly. I also like the anthologies for Dilbert and Pearls Before Swine. My Twitter feed will sometimes have Zen Pencils in it.

Ask me about Catan, Carcassonne, or Fluxx sometime. I run a Minecraft server for friends, and think people should play Kerbal Space Program at least once.
The six things I could never do without
* My backpack
* A camera
* Comfortable clothes
* Something handy to read.
* Something to listen to.
* People I can share what I see with.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
* How to make things run better.
* Why do people do things in particular ways?
* How people live, given their particular situation.
On a typical Friday night I am
If I'm not home, I'm hanging out with friends, or on a random adventure. If I am home, its preparing for the weekend, or catching up on a project.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
My family's a mess, and I spent my 20s just getting by. Coming to California meant a chance to "reboot" for my 30s: and so far, so good!
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 25–40
  • Near me
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
You want to go on a short hike, try some board games that aren't Monopoly, or go on a random trip around here to check something cool out. Or if you want to just ponder the meaning of things. Hell, if you got a random question, I'll probably answer it.
