My self-summary
I tend to spend a lot of time in my head, punctuated by fairly mindless pursuits that in some way supplement the things I -actually- care about.

I'm not sure how to characterize my relationship with human contact. On the one hand, it tends to wear me out (exceptions being when I'm in a particular mood, or among the small subset of people I call friends). On the other, it fascinates me, and I learn a lot from it. I enjoy interacting with sorts of people I've never interacted with before, even if the interaction can be challenging at times. Overall I'd say I'm in favor of it?

The way I'm writing this is more or less the way that I sound in my head. In person I'm usually more truncated, more to the point- literal and rational in application to things that normally have nothing to do with literalism or rationality. Occasionally, I end up in the correct headspace to speak like I think (which is different from speaking what I think- a matter of translation, articulation, and generally playing to the audience). Usually its after a few drinks, but rarely its just due to clicking with a person.

I suppose those are the persons I'm here to find, among others.

I've been dubbed More Kinky and More Sexperienced. While I do appreciate a good portmanteau, and while it's empirically true, that isn't what I'm here for. I'm hunting down connections, and if that's where they lead, so be it; I'd prefer it not be where they begin. I think I'm also More Empathetic and More Cerebral than most people, for the record (and if you hold any stock in personality assessment, the Watson-Crick supercomputer totes agrees with me).

I'd rather have questions than answers, because in my experience, answers tend to close minds. I'm not much for the establishment, but I'm more of a theorist than an activist and not sure if that should change (never mind whether I want it to). I don't lead an entirely conventional life and don't expect to end up in an entirely conventional relationship, even if I have no idea what that means just yet.

Also, since this is seeming rather serious: I'm usually not. All that serious. I'm irreverent, curse like a sailor, given to puns and wordplay, and on occasion (read: most) fairly sarcastic. Humor is an excellent lens through which to view the world, and often an even better way to address it.
What I’m doing with my life
Gaming. Gaming-related projects. Writing or at least thinking about writing. Reading. Accruing experience points, leveling up. Checking the walls to make sure I'm not in a Skinner's Box. Exercising my intellect in general.
I’m really good at
Nothing. I would classify "really good" as at least top 20%, and I don't think there's anything I'm that good at it. Most of the things I'm fairly good at are nebulous. I am, however, good at a lot of things, and competent at most.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I'm noticing them.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Too many things. My tastes run broad and deep (and I can be entertained by the shallow).

I have an onerous commute, which bodes poorly for books; I've been tearing through them of late. Recent conquests include: Kraken, Giovanni's Room, The Picture of Dorian Gray, Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality, American Gods. I tend to reread a lot of Neil Gaiman, Gregory Maguire, Michael Chabon, and Bret Easton Ellis.

I worked at Blockbusters for about five years before they went under and saw roughly every movie that came out in that period. I don't tend to see too many these days unless someone suggests we go (which I'm totally amenable to) or we're just hanging out and manage to decide on something via Netflix.

I only keep up with Supernatural. I'll lapse in and out of binges of other stuff, ranging from critically acclaimed series I missed to random guilty pleasures (usually CW or MTV fare).

I like food. A lot.
The six things I could never do without
-Human interaction
-Escapes from human interaction
-Books (the physical objects, along with their ephemeral content)
-Cigarettes and coffee, currently (I've done without in the past, for stretches)
-Parentheses
-Sleep
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Human nature. Sociopathy. Social contracts. Magic: the Gathering. Genre fiction in all media formats. Guys. Everything.
On a typical Friday night I am
Ridin' nerdy.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Well. It's hardly private that I'm More Kinky and More Sexperienced, now, is it? Thanks OKCupid.

Thanks.

(But seriously, I'll talk about almost anything with anyone. Feel free to ask)
You should message me if
You think we might connect. You don't think we might connect, but do want to interact. Anything in my profile resonated with you. You're superlatively geeky and want to geek out. You find my profile extremely wrong-headed and feel compelled to correct me.

For the record: I don't have a lot of spare time for friends, online or otherwise. Odds are that exceptions to that rule exist. I also am not looking for casual sex, but some kind of meaningful friends-with-benefits scenario is feasible.

I think that's all. Say hi if you'd like to.
