Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a proto-typical nerdy guy, really. I'd say I strove to be so,
but it comes naturally. INTP if you want to get more specific. I'm
a guy who loves his job, but wants to leave early every day. I'm
male, obviously (I hope). I'm a part-time amateur writer, riffer,
and voice actor. I'm not really the outdoorsey type, but I do have
to sit in awe sometimes of things bigger and older than me, which
nature tends to have a lot of.
I am wittful, nerdy, and pondering
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working my new office type job. The first I've ever had, which
makes me instantly want to watch "the Office" just so I can talk
about it at the watercooler, assuming that there is a watercooler
somewhere in the building. Writing both a novel and a screenplay,
and working occasionally on a home made Mystery Science Theater
3000 rip off as well. Looking for the watercooler.
Oh, and obsessively looking at who's stalking me.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Stretching jokes beyond their natural lifespans. Shelving DVDs.
Organizing my various collections. Thesaurus jokes. Trivia both
pointless and slightly less pointless. Cracking wise on bad movies.
Cracking unwise on good movies. Turning off the mediocre ones. Pop
culture references both obvious and obscure. Audio editing.
ANT. Writing profiles.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My eyes. They're very dark and quite expressive. Dark as my
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Non-fiction and comic books mostly. The non-fiction is
mostly history with a dash of sociology and economics thrown in for
bad measure. Favorite authors off the top of my head: Douglas
Adams, Cornelius Ryan, John Keegan, Stan Lee, Steve Gerber, and
Peter David. I apparently also read one fiction classic a year,
last year it was "Catcher in the Rye" this year, who knows?
(Update: it's two so far this year! "Lolita" & "Hitchhiker's
Guide Guide to Galaxy")
Movies: The Iron Giant. Rocky. Juno. Clerks. Star Wars of course,
the Marx Brothers. 30's Screwball comedies. Live action kids
movies. Sci-fi unless they're pretentious. Actually anything if
it's not pretentious or is just really good at hiding it. Oh and
anything on or similar too something from Mystery Science Theater
or in other words, bad.
Music: Bad techno. Melancholy "alternative". Most of the decade of
the 1990's. A slight amount of the decade of the 1890's, (mainly:
"Daisy") Not really attached to any bands though, I must say.
Favorite song of all time is a live version I have of "A Long
December," for what that's worth.
Food: Almost anything non-spicy. Bonus points if it includes
chocolate or avocado.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Sources of information. A hobby. Occasional companionship.
Occasional alone time. Air conditioning. Food/water/shelter.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The future of humanity. I really do. And honestly, in contrast to
most people I've met, I'm quite optimistic about said future, or as
I just now heard a great man say, "Cynicism is a sorry kind of
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I haven't had many free Friday nights in six months or more, which
was a different life ago.
I have no idea what to do with myself.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm balding. Slowly, but I am. I wish I could wake up one morning
and it'd just fallen all off, but alas, nature takes its time.

Sorry. I went the whole profile without a pointless pop culture
reference, had to get it out of my system in the last question.
