My self-summary
This profile is about a 6 minute read. (stole that from
Unless you read slower or faster than someone who wrote all this crap, then it's not. So probably not then.

They say high numbers of people lie on their profile or make themselves look better than they are...

I'm 194cm tall, I have four castles and three jet planes. I have all of the most recent pictures on my profile.
I hug all the puppies and kittens I come across, even though I have varying levels of allergy. Every month at least once I give a million euro to a lost cause.

Now you can just enjoy the rest without having to wonder if there's any lies.

And yes, quite a few of my pictures are older, because I don't have a lot of people in my life taking pictures of me. One of the many reasons I am here.

I have hundreds of stories to tell that didn't fit anywhere and I'll meet you for almost anything.

I don't specifically want or look for. But I like people who are honest (maybe even too much so) or interesting or have something going on or keep a conversation going on another basis.
Ik spreek en schrijf ook Nederlands.
My sister in law told me I have a nice voice to listen to. A close friend told me I have interesting eyes. Another good friend forbade me to shave my head in solidarity "because you have awesome hair". Someone else tells me I'm deceptively strong (for an IT nerd) - DIY and motorcycles I guess. I'm also told I make great cakes and brownies, the latter I definitely agree. It's a point of pride. Live with it.

What I say about me (this may be too honest for comfort, but, it's a new experiment I'm doing):
I have great moments, I have good moments, I have mediocre moments and I have bad moments. In my bad moments I need a day to mope and not be cheered up. Usually I hide in my lab for a day or two and come out good or great again. I don't like to argue (the bad kind), so I avoid it and come back to what bugged me when I've calmed down. Some people think that's a strength, an ex found it the most aggravating thing in the world. I am in many senses a brilliant individual, often, if not almost always able to logically solve problems of nearly any kind. I can truly care for and about people, but my biggest failing is not knowing how to express that in the right way all of the time (too much, too little, entirely wrong). We all have our issues.

Oh and as opposed to this app's opinion, I'm am super ro'o'omantic. I'll let you wonder whether or not that one is a lie....

My twitter:
My EE-Stack profile (for more techy people?):

Steam name Merdosh.

What I’m doing with my life
Freelancing. Helping people I like. And also:
I’m really good at
I'm good at becoming acceptable at things quickly.
Making Brownies. It's an established fact.
Making up sketches and jokes inside my head that make me laugh uncontrollably, but that cannot be explained to any degree to anyone else.

I'm horribly bad at realising how thought through some stuff I say is. I'm also less good than average at expressing my thoughts in normal human terms before I've finished thinking them.
The first things people usually notice about me
I don't know.
I'm told I can seem intimidating, which sucks, because I'm really not.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I don't really know how this bit really helps, but okay... Here goes (you asked for it!):

I cook. I try to do it well. But I like many kinds of food in all kinds of situations.

Books: Good stories, with plot lines.
I was surprised to find I liked Kathy Reichs' crime/thriller books when I started them. (They later created the basis for Bones.)

TV: British comedy, panel shows and stand-up. Some drama (not all though). Some sci-fi (like ST-TNG, or Firefly. None of that Brannon Braga or JJ Abrahams slurry)
I prefer TV as background audio when I'm doing deep thought things when home alone, because it feels most like there's something going on in house and that motivates me. When cleaning, organising or sanding down a piece of wood I often play all kinds of music.

In the case of music: Anything that isn't easily replicated by slamming one's head repeatedly into a cheap late-90's keyboard.
Six things I could never do without
There's a lot I really, really prefer to not do without.

But with just water and basic foods that nourish I'll make it anywhere eventually.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
All. None. I'm good at over-thinking on occasion.

- Where can I best hide my thoughts, once they have foolishly left the front of my face?
- If you colour everywhere outside the lines, are you not just colouring inside the lines again?
- Can you be accused of having lost your mind if you know where you left it, but just refuse to use it?
- Does anybody care that "You don't know what you've got, until it's gone" is a temporal inaccuracy?
On a typical Friday night I am
very disappointed about finally having established "a typical Friday night".
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
You should message me if
If you're not the kind of person who needs me to tell them when to send a message.
The two of us
