My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'd like to imagine myself as a younger, slightly taller Phil Coulson., However, I believe that I have not quite reached that level of awesome yet, so let's call that an ideal to pursue for the time being.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Writing. Defintion: Putting a set of words down in an order that they've never been put in before.

Full disclosure, I stole that from Chuck Wendig, one of my authorial heroes, but you know what? It's true. Every setence, every story, every blog and every feature treatment is a new journey that no one has even taken before. Even a re-write is a journey that takes you down new paths to the same destination.

I write like I try to live my life. I plan with a map, but I bring a GPS so I can take a last minute detour because I have to see the bat caves that have been advertised on the freeway for the last half-mile.

Full disclosure: I stole that from Alton Brown, one of my culinary heroes.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Well, I'm a Southerner, so I pride myself on my manners, hospitality, and cooking. People tell me I'm a pretty snappy dresser, and obviously I think I can tell a good story.

UPDATE: Experience has taught me that I need to go full disclosure on this one too, but I'm afraid I don't have a Southern accent. I sound like I should read the weather. Think young Walter Cronkite.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Imagine Groot from Guardians of the Galaxy, but better dressed and talkative enough to give Rocket Raccoon a run for his money.

Also, not a tree.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
That's a hard one. I'm so enthusastic about most things and am so frequently looking for something new and cool I don't keep favorite for very long (aside from my all-time favorite movie, Ghostbusters). So let's go with:

Shows: Yes. But I'm enjoying the summer lull to catch up on a bunch of stuff. Hannibal (fare the well, nightmare fuel), Star Wars: Clone Wars (the prequel stories I wish we had gotten), and the Marvel/DC superhero shows troika.

Movies: Yes to all, and Inside Out is one of the sweetest Pixar movies they've put out in a while. The way they depict our emotional lives is so inventive (and kind of accurate apparently?). The casting was comically perfect and its story is heartfelt enough to get me close to tears.

Music: Yes, although I'm really enjoying Nate Ruess' solo album, the Grand Romantic. Great Big Storm, obviously, but I also kind of like AHa.

Food: Yes, but lately I've been learning a lot more about wine. Full disclosure, I can talk a person's ear off about craft beer, but my wine knowledge is kind of limited beyond "red" and "white". I live in California, though, so it feels like it behooves me to actually know what I'm talking about.

Comics: Yes, but I just picked up Locke and Key on comixology for a song. Good for Joe Hill for getting out from under his father's shadow, ya know?

Books: Yes, but I'm finishing up The Child-Thief right now -- it's a real dark twist on the Peter Pan myth, with Peter as a wild-child of questionable morality fighting a war of survival using what are, essentially, child soldiers.

Games (board, video, tabletop RPGs, and otherwise): Yes, but these days? I'm getting through Assassin's Creed III. Parkour conspiracy historical tourism is my jam to begin with, but throw in some of founding of our great nation and I'm a happy man.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Tea. I don't drink coffee, but I drink leaf-juice by the bucket load.

2. Podcasts and audible. The only way to do housework and navigate our fair city's traffic patterns.

3. Sunshine. I may love video games, but I've never been much of an indoors-only kid.

4. My cast-iron enameled dutch-oven (file under: cooking utensils I would grab if there were a fire).

5 and 6. I'll let you know when I figure it out. It's always best to leave a few spaces blank for emergencies.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Many things, often very quickly. That I will likely tell you about if you don't stop me.

I do have a habit of wondering what's going on in that building. Or in that empty field. What's the story behind a grave or a plaque or a piece of architecture that makes no sense. Writers. Always looking for stories around every corner.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Friday -- the night of a million possibilities. Hosting a party (game nights a specialty) catching a movie (blockbuster, indie, outdoor picnic in a graveyard), taking in a lecture, or going on a foodventure.

Fridays aren't really a Netflix day for me. I do watch a lot of Netflix over the week though. Especially Sundays. Sundays are good documentary days.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If you're unabashedly, uncontrollably, passionately nerdy about something. Anything. If you can't wait to tell me (or any other gentleman or lady you meet on this website) about this thing.

Because I really want to hear about it.
