My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a single guy living in the Johnson County area of Kansas City. I'm tall, not all that dark and somewhat handsome. I tend to look at things with a quirky bent and see dark humor in almost any situation. I'm more comfortable in small group/one-on-one activities instead of large group parties. I played the saxophone through college, and occasionally pull it out when I feel adventurous.

I am fun, intelligent, and cuddly.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a technical writer, which in real terms means I write stuff that people glance at and then toss in the corner while trying to figure it out on their own. I've worked in telecommunications, health care and a Big Bank.

I go to the gym on a regular basis. Sometimes when I feel like throwing up on the pavement I'll run outside... but not fast. I've done two indoor triathlons in February and March 2011 and the Heritage Park Triathlon in May 2011. I was the last person to finish...but I finished. I've done several 5Ks and a few 10Ks with a goal of longer races eventually -- part of my continuous battle trying to reduce my souffle top to a muffin top.

I like to get out of town every once in a while. Recent trips have been Austin in September 2013 and Detroit in November 2013 & July 2014.

I also spend way too much time on Facebook when I'm at home. I feel like the commercial where the daughter has 721 friends and her parents have 19...which is why I try to get out of the house occasionally. I have several friends involved in the local music, performance and burlesque scenes and I try to go out and support them whenever I can.

I also make a pretty good boozy peanut brittle.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
figuring things out, which is a good match for my job.

Note: This does not necessarily apply to things like troubleshooting computers, cars, and relationships. :P
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm tall, quiet, and have a dry, dark sense of humor.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: history (Stephen Ambrose), alternative history (Harry Turtledove, Bernard Cornwell), science fiction/fantasy (Jim Butcher, Simon Green, John Scalzi, Glen Cook, Anne Rice, Rachel Caine, Jacqueline Carey, Naomi Novak), humor (Hunter S Thompson, P.J. O'Rourke), cooking (Anthony Bourdain, Eric Ripert, Michael Ruhlman).

Movies/DVDs: an eclectic mix from comedy (Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Office Space, Spaceballs, Blazing Saddles, Stripes, Monty Python and the Holy Grail) to action (Gettysburg, Kill Bill, Basic, The Italian Job, The Hours, LOTR) to documentaries (The Capitol, The White House) to TV series (The West Wing, SportsNight, Doctor Who, Eureka, Firefly, Farscape, Band of Brothers).

TV: Create (the PBS channel with food & travel shows), Travel Channel (Bizarre Foods, Ghost Adventures, Off Limits), ESPN, SyFy (Ghost Hunters), and BBC America (Doctor Who, Top Gear). The Science Channel and NatGeo are also on my radar for specific one-off shows. I've been watching more Netflix, binging on BBC mysteries.

Music: classic rock and r&b, jazz, funk, blues. Currently in my car I have Prince, James Brown, The Eagles, Men At Work, Barenaked Ladies, Devo and local band The Latenight Callers.

Food: meat. My diet is theoretically restrictive, low on starch and sugar, so some high-carb foods like Italian can be challenging (I get my pasta fix via a company called Dreamfield). Basically, it's a modified Atkins diet. I have a weakness for tortilla chips, though, and it shows.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
The laptop and the TV are on virtually all the time when I'm home, whether I'm paying attention to them or not. I like to know where my cellphone is, although the ringer isn't always on.

I also have at least one book in the car so I have a date when I go out to eat by myself.

Three more -- my wallet, my watch, my car/house keys.

(Okay, that's seven. I'll learn how to count.)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
how to get from here *points to the ground at my feet* to there *points that way*.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
either downtown watching friends perform, or at home on the couch watching Netflix.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have lots of goofy scifi props and toys, from Star Wars to Star Trek to Firefly to Blade Runner to Doctor Who.

(I'm a single guy in his 40s -- what did you expect?)
