Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
It has been a long time since I've done much with this website.
I've looked through all of my answers to all those questions and
some of them are not quite correct anymore. I've changed some of
them to reflect the person I am now. I may have missed some so if
you see something on there that may be a deal-breaker ask and I may
have not gotten around to changing it yet (provided you even get
motivated to look). I don't really look at people's answers to
those anyway and tend to just go by how they present themselves on
their profile. It did make me think about how people change over
time. Maybe keeping a diary would be a similar experience.
I have a professional office-type job that pays the bills and
allows me to create, though it sucks up a lot of the time that I
could use to actually make things (funny how that works out). I
have a very long list of potential projects to do that I will
probably never get to the end of, especially since I keep adding to
it. I sometimes take breaks from making things to recharge the
creative banks by reading, watching movies, listening to new music,
I like to cook and enjoy cooking for other people. I cook a lot of
Asian (Indian and Southeast Asian, mainly), Middle Eastern, and
African dishes. If you have the gene that makes cilantro tastes
like soap or if you are a vegetarian you may not appreciate my
I enjoy going to art events. I realize that is vague/possibly
cliche but it probably gets your mind moving in the right
direction. Lately I have been interested in various types of
performance art. Again, probably vague but maybe that will give us
something to talk about.
I like to travel though it's been a while since I left the US.
Wouldn't mind a travel buddy. Just saying.
I really like fresh air and love to spend time outside (I go hiking
in the Metroparks fairly regularly). Go figure, I live in Ohio
where you can't go outside six months out of the year.
I'm now semi-regretting my choice of screen names since I
discovered that in addition to being a seer in Greek mythology,
Tiresias was also a transsexual. I have to wonder what sort of
message that sends, but I don't feel like changing it and having to
answer all those questions again. In any case, you probably didn't
even know that before now anyway. And if you did, maybe you clicked
on my profile just out of curiosity. Please be assured, I am male.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Reading and writing a lot, just not quite the way I'd expected.
Mulling over buying a new camera to get back into photography.
Painting and making things when I find the time and inspiration.
I’m really good at

Depending on my environment, I may be overdressed, wearing lights
of some kind, or on fire, so probably one of those.

I have very wide-ranging tastes so I could go on and on to answer
I have read a lot of Douglas Adams, Tom Robbins, and Hunter
Thompson. I also read a fair amount of non-fiction (I know Hunter
Thompson could almost be considered non-fiction but...), including
travelogues (read "Drinking Arak Off an Ayatollah's Beard" if you
get a chance sometime), sci-fi (I enjoy Neal Stephenson, to name
one author) and historical stuff.
Movies...I tend to like indie/arthouse type movies and a lot of
documentaries. I also enjoy the occasional bad movie (going back to
the books bit and overlapping with the movies..."The Disaster
Artist" is a must read if you have seen the epic train wreck that
is The Room").
I fairly open when it comes to music and I will usually go to any
show (especially if it's free). Lately I have been interested in
bands that blend genres, if that makes sense. I recently discovered
Pandora and I've been enjoying that a lot. I try to stump it but it
is surprisingly good at finding music like other music, no matter
how unique I think it is. I like pyschobilly and some EDM (lately
I've been enjoying electro-swing...it's just fun), to name a couple
genres, but I also like neo-cabaret and a lot of metal (and
As I mentioned above, I like to cook and I am quite partial to
Middle Eastern and Southeast Asian food. I will try just about
anything. Just not brain tissue (at least, not until the zombie
apocalypse). When I went to Argentina I made sure to learn the
Spanish word for "brain" so I didn't accidentally order it off the

Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My brain, heart, and lungs. A book to read. The world outside my
apartment. Mystery (I love Bigfoot!!).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Traveling. That is probably my biggest interest. I want to go
everywhere. I'm always in the process of planning a trip somewhere.
Right now I'm aiming at Central America or Asia. I also like to
think about becoming a space pirate. That's why I'm a big supporter
of NASA...the sooner we start building space ships and space
stations, the sooner I can start stealing said space ships and
using them to attack and plunder said space stations.

You have something to say. Seriously...I prize decent conversation.
Also...while I will be friends with pretty much anyone who is not a
complete train wreck of a human being, I can be a bit picky about
who I get involved with. Just a fair warning.
