My self-summary
Greetings, Earthican.

I'm a self identified nerd, and proud of it. I love reading and dabble in writing and other creative activities. My first love is history, and it is something I have an over-riding passion for.

I'm shy. I feel like I'm more awkward than I probably am. I can also be the funniest person you've ever met. Sometimes I will make you want to tear your hair out.

I identify as bisexual, but truth be told, I've had somewhat limited experience with other men, but it's a side of me that I want to explore more of. I just need to find the right person for that.
What I’m doing with my life
To quote Xavier, Renegade Angel, "I'm a conundrummer in a band called Life Puzzler."

I figured this would be as good of a place as any to share some quotes I enjoy.

"Strangers passing in the street,
By chance two separate glances meet,
And I am you and what I see is me.
And do I take you by the hand
And lead you through the land
And help me understand
The best I can."

"Did you ever wonder why
We had to run for shelter
When the promise of a brave new world
Unfurled beneath a clear blue sky?"

"God is a comedian playing to an audience too afraid to laugh." - Voltaire

"You will always be lucky if you know how to make friends with strange cats." - Proverb

"Semper fidelis tyrannosaurus!"
"You mean 'sic semper tyranus'. What you just said was 'always faithful terrible lizard'."
"I did? Cool!"
-Conversation between Henchman 21 and Dr. Henry Killinger, "The Venture Brothers"

"If you're going through hell, keep going." - Winston Churchill
I’m really good at
Cooking, Writing, Debate (when I have my +5 Box o' Wine)
The first things people usually notice about me
The hair, the beard, the labcoat, or the voice. Hell, everything about me screams "out of place!".

And no, I am not British.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
The best way to turn my home into a fortress. Also, the song "Be Prepared" from the Lion King. I cannot get it out of my head, ever.
On a typical Friday night I am
Wanting to do drunken karaoke, but more often than not, not finding anyone to come along... So probably just hanging out with friends at home instead.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Website, I like you and all, but we've just met. I don't think it's time yet to be busting out these secrets. Give it some time, and I'm sure we'll connect, and I'll tell you some secrets that will knock your socks off. ;D
You should message me if
1. You can hold a conversation.
2. You're not easily offended.
3. You're not going to sober up anytime soon.
