I'm a big adorkable (adorable dork) from the South. I could teach a class on science fiction and yet still explain the rules of baseball to you. I'm that rare person who scores 50% extrovert, 50% introvert on the Myers-Briggs personality test.
My go-to phrases are "Oh my Buddha" and "son of a Joe" (I'm Joe). It's not fair to pick just one deity or curse someone's mama when you don't know them (I know myself, so I feel just fine cursing myself/any male offspring of mine out).
I make my living by consulting on cloud technology, so if you just need a weekend drinking/exploration buddy, I can be that!
This describes me extremely well...
Calling it now Bernie Sanders becomes POTUS in a race between himself and Ted Cruz. You'll see pretty soon. 2/3/2016
I was once asked what was my personal brand. A word or phrase or image that represents me. I drew the symbol of Superman.
I'm the guy you call to lift a couch...by himself up your three flights of stairs.
My sister describes me as a "Californian Surfer Dude" who has never learned to surf. It's a shame, I think it would be fun. Plus I've just moved to California so at least the first part of it is coming true.
I <3 Movies...Name a few and I bet I've seen 75% or more of them. My favorite, however, is Gattaca. It demonstrates that we can rise above our so-called potential to achieve something more than us. Movies that I always keep stashed on an accessible harddrive though are: Better Off Dead, The Princess Bride, Stranger Than Fiction, Garden State, Hot Tub Time Machine, Despicable Me, Pirate Radio, Eurotrip, Moonrise Fiefdom, well, there are others but I think you get the picture.
I listen to Punk, Hip-Hop, Indie, Alternative, a little Metal, R&B, Pop, etc. Top 5 (High Fidelity style): The Academy Is..., A Day to Remember, Silverstein, Forever the Sickest Kids, Brand New. Guilty Sixth: Taylor Swift
I've read more books than you a fact that we could argue for hours I'm sure, but nowadays I mostly read sci-fi and fantasy books.
My favorite book by far is The Count of Monte Cristo, but I will also give props to Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell.
The book I am most proud of owning: A signed copy of The Fault in Our Stars
Favorite Fantasy Book/Series: Tie between The Gentlemen Bastard Series by Scott Lynch and The Kingkiller Chronicles by Patrick Rothfuss (thankfully both are still being written)
Favorite Sci-Fi Book/Series: The Moon is a Harsh Mistress
Favorite Guilty Pleasure Reading: Percy Jackson/Heroes of Olympus Series by Rick Riordan (I love mythology)
Currently reading: Redshirts by John Scalzi, Ready Player One by Ernest Cline, and Golden Son by Pierce Brown.
As for TV, I like comedies. New Girl, The Mindy Project, Modern Family, Family Guy (I constantly make references), anything that will make me laugh mostly.
As for what food I like to eat, I'll eat anything trust me on that. Worst thing I've ever eaten has been fish eyeballs, an experience I don't want to repeat. Remind me to tell you about the first time I had chicken's feet though, it's a decent story.
Beer: IPA, Stout, Saison, Hefeweizen, Tripel drinker. I dig Chimay, anything brewed by Three Floyds, Lagunitas Lil Sumpin Sumpin, Russian River, Terrapin Hopsecutioner (Georgia IPA that may be better than most beers I've found on the West Coast yet), and Old Rasputin
Do people on here really pose naked in their beds so they can attract attention?
Then there's the good old-fashioned question, why I am so much taller than my parents? My thoughts are that it comes down to diet, we eat significantly different food than our parents did when they were growing up.
Also, I've got a teddy bear named Archibald the Tyrant.
If you brought me a six pack of beer and a super hero movie you could probably get into my pants...
(I wonder which of those three should be the more private thing?)
Likes sci-fi books or movies
Not afraid to eat a whole pizza with me (I'll do the heavy lifting here)
Can laugh about anything from funny faces to making fun of each other
Is ambitious but we'll help each other get away from work when we need it
Will let me give you a back massage. Strange as it sounds, I like giving them and I'm good at it.
Loves to travel. I am heading to Morocco in November, so I would like to find someone equally excited to travel the world and try new things. (And Denmark -> Germany next March.)
