My self-summary
I'm here to meet interesting people, have adventures and develop friendships. If there's also a physical click in addition the friendship, then we see where it leads.

I'm eclectic, geeky, a bit nerdy at times.

Jack of all trades, master of none, though oftentimes better than master of one.
What I’m doing with my life
I have an IT Career as a Networking/Server Support/Desktop Support tech. Sure, it's a career, it's what I do, not who I am.

My time is spent in a variety of ways. I read, primarily sci-fi and fantasy but dabble in all sorts of reading material. News articles, opinion pieces, blogs, science articles, etc etc. I game, video games, board games, card games, table top role-playing games. I enjoy building things. Home Rehab/Improvement projects, costuming things (like mechanical dragon wings). artsy stuff. Helping friends, it could be to help them move, build something, bury a body... um... er.... help with problems/solving things... Go on adventures: explore Aquariums, Zoos, Museums, Concerts. See Fringe Theater, visit Parks, go on day trips with friends. Workout, train in martial arts. Garden (I'm new at it, turned my front yard into a garden and I'm learning as I grow things. I occasionally go out swing dancing. One of the circles I'm on the edge of is the Flow/Fire/Burning Community (Burning Man) or whatever it's called. I'm not really into bars but I'll go. A couple times a month you might find me doing the Goth Industrial/Aggro/Noise club thing.

I'm an animal lover with too big of a heart. I have cats. I've taken in a few neighborhood strays. I also have a turtle. and in the process of designing and then will build a Plywood Aquarium and will likely get another. I like dogs and enjoy them, just don't have one.

I never know where to put this part.

What I'm not doing with my life:
The traditional thing. The societal expected thing. I'm not looking to "start a family" or enter into an existing one. I have no "relationship goals" beyond meeting someone I find attractive in personality as well as physically and enjoying their company. It should go like this. Step one, we enjoy each others personalities and a friendship develops. We go on adventures (dates). Step two, there is a physical click, we are sexually attracted to each other. We have sex. Step three, after awhile we're enjoying each other and we decide we both want a serious relationship. To go with the non-traditional thing, I do not want children. I have no interest in being responsible for a life beyond the pets. Not only do I not want to be responsible for them but I don't want the obligation of spending the time and energy on them. This goes for children from my loins, or children from someone else's.
I’m really good at
Being Awkward. I'd like to think that it's cute and charming.
The first things people usually notice about me
Cobalt blue hair. I've frosted the tips of my hair. It's fun and suits me.

If not the blue hair, or because of the blue hair, people notice I'm a bit different.

I'm rocking black hair at the moment, the blue is coming back... well, the dark blonde will grow back in and then the blue is coming back.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
As mentioned above, my book preference is in the realm of fantasy and sci-fi. Recently I've enjoying the Dresden Files series by Jim Butcher. I do branch out from time to time. The most recent non fantasy/sci-fi was the memoir Dry by Augusten Burroughs.

Music is all over the place. I primarily listen to Alt Rock, but I enjoy everything from Swing/Big Band Jazz to Goth Industrial/Aggro/Noise.
On a typical Friday night I am
Probably relaxing after the work day and week. Likely I'm working on one of my projects/hobbies or pondering things. Basically, recharging. I'm not the type to go out, just to go out. But if there is something interesting to do, then I I'll be doing that.
You should message me if
If you're artsy, geeky, nerdy and want someone to join you in finding fun, interesting things to do, and go on adventures.

Adventures, we should go on adventures.
