My self-summary
I am completely and utterly dichotomous.

I'm recovering from the gym and watching Lost from beginning to end on Netflix at the moment, please leave a message!

Update: finished! Ending was somewhat unsatisfactory (and predictable), but nowhere near as bad as people said it was.

Update 2: Yes, Available was intentional. I'm in a relationship, yay! Yes, it's open. Yes, she knows I keep a bio here (Shocker! So does she!) So if you're looking for something monogamous, best of luck to you! If you're looking for something not monogamous, let's chat! :)
What I’m doing with my life
I have yet to cure cancer, end global famine or reach Nirvana...

Oh, but I did build my own computer!

More seriously, I assume this question more specifically means "What are you doing to remain gainfully employed and staving off starving destitution." The answer: I run the Operations for a small delivery solutions company. Oh glorious upper management!!
I’m really good at
Writing, trivia, sports of any and all kinds (hockey was my first passion, MMA my second, and weight-lifting my current...) I'm really good at being a father to my kids, dishes, doing laundry, vacuuming... I've been house-broken. :)

Things I am not good at: anything related to music and drawing. I envy the ability to draw.
The first things people usually notice about me
I am tall.

My glowing nimbus of awesome is somehow often overlooked. :\
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'm a voracious reader of all things fiction, but two that have really stood with me are definitely Stranger in a Strange Land and Time Enough for Love. Heinlein's utopias may be unrealistic, but the theme of openly expressed love really resonates with me.

As for movies:

Princess Bride is probably my favorite. Tombstone is also a must-watch whenever it's on.

I don't watch much TV (I don't have cable... Hulu/Netflix yeah!), but I've been really impressed with the shows in recent years. It's like Hollywood suddenly "got it" and stopped producing shitty TV. There's some damn good shows out there now. Community was my recent fixation. Before that was Weeds, Lost and 30 Rock. My all time favorite is easily West Wing. Show me really dense, intelligent discourse with great story arcs and interesting characters and I'm hooked. Or, you know... Troy and Abed.
Six things I could never do without
Sarcasm - It's my milieu.

My computer/internet - I've been hooked since Gore invented it...

The Gym/Rink/Dojo - I'm a life-long athlete. I gave up physical activity for a couple years after a personal tragedy, and getting back into it made me realize how much I missed/need it.

Affection - I care nothing at all for gifts/cards/flowers/balloons or whatever else. I want hugs and kisses. Oh and if you give good massages/back scratches I will love you forever. Genuine affection is the most intoxicating drug in the world.

Books - I'm not much of a TV watcher or a movie buff. I like books. Draw your own conclusions.

Cheez-Itz™ - My addiction. This is why I'm fat, dot com. (I'm not fat.)

(Two items that narrowly missed the cut: a car and a shower. I like to be clean, and I like to have mobility.)

(I also apparently cannot do without ellipses or parentheticals...)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Lately, it's whether the events in my life were required for me to end up where I am on the path at this time... Or if I could have learned lessons an easier way.

Yeah, probably not...
On a typical Friday night I am

Trolling for Kit Kat...


Playing The Internet Dating Drinking Game™:
1. Use the 'Show me random match' function (roll the dice, quickmatch etc)
2. Take a drink whever you read the following (or similar):

* I'm sarcastic (I'm meta - I break my own rules. Endless drink cycle!)
* Shy until you get to know me
* Love to laugh
* Easy Going / Laid Back
* Txt spk
* Misspelling in the first sentence
* no full body photos
* listen to any music except country or rap
* uses lol as punctuation
* Ridiculously inane things they couldn't live without like 'Air' and 'Friends'
* Message me if 'You want to'
* Private thing 'Wouldn't be private if I told you'
* There's no such thing as a typical Friday night
* Loves to travel; no mention of having been anywhere significant
* Zombies
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I can deadlift nearly 500 lbs (2x body weight).

Strangely, no woman has ever before asked me how much I can deadlift. I find this a failing in the female gender...

Update for the "embarrassing" private thing: I realized tonight while at the gym that Limp Bizkit is somehow on my Ipod play-list. This in and of itself is only somewhat embarrassing. The truly embarrassing part is I was un-ironically enjoying it. Ha.

Second update: Limp Bizkit is no longer on my Ipod. I'm wistful, but not sad.
You should message me if
Well since it's free, message me about anything and everything. This isn't some kind of sociological barrier where just the right words will unlock the door. Banter is good. Witty banter is better. Sarcastic witty banter is best. :)
The two of us
