My self-summary
New to the Lewisville area. I'm seeing someone, so I'm just here to make some new friends.

I'm Jess. ENFP, if you're the type who's interested in that stuff.

A few things about me:

I'm a named hasher with the El Paso Hash House Harriers, one of the local chapters of the worldwide 'Drinking Club with a running problem'. We get together on Sunday afternoons, run a few miles, drink a few beers, and generally have a good time.

I've been accused of being an intellectual type. I love to read. I listen to a wide variety of music, from indie to overproduced radio crap. I'm into movies and video games and comic books and all the typical 'geek' stuff.

I'm also one of a dying breed: the man's man. I love to build, fix, fabricate, disassemble, rebuild and improve just about everything. This doesn't mean I'm a misogynistic patriarch rape-justifying pro-life lunatic (quite the contrary: I'm actually kind of a feminist); I've just embraced my masculinity. I come from a long line of handy-man fix-it types... it's in my blood.

Hand-in-hand with that is my love for the outdoors. I enjoy a good hike (especially with my pup), a good swim, or a long weekend in a tent under the stars. There's nothing like the feeling of the sun on your face and clean air filling your lungs.
What I’m doing with my life
Working, writing, and carefully planning many adventures.

And I'm training at El Paso San Soo. It's Kung Fu designed for the street, a functional art the likes of which they teach to law enforcement and military personnel. It's awesome, fun, and a great workout. And it's amazing how stress-relieving it can be to punch things. And people.

Also, I just started a new fitness program. I won't bore you with details, but after recovering from some pretty serious injuries, it feels great to be back at it. And I've lost a bunch of weight, which is a pretty cool bonus.
I’m really good at
Sliding across vinyl or hardwood floors in my socks. Don't be jealous.
The first things people usually notice about me
My eyes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I am obsessed with A Song of Ice and Fire by George RR Martin. It's the series HBO's Game of Thrones is based on, and it is nothing short of mind-boggling. Other favorites include The Great Gatsby, Starship Troopers, Merle's Door, and pretty much anything Sherlock Holmes (Conan Doyle, of course, not any of the later stuff written by others).

Music: As I mentioned before, I am a total music junkie. I love Americana, Alt Country, non-pop rock, and pretty much anything of the independent variety. Rock: Dream Theater. Spock's Beard. Paul Thorn. Marillion. The Flower Kings. Transatalantic. Liquid Tension Experimient. The Black Keys. American Blackbelt Academy. The Who. Modest Mouse. Joe Satriani. Ok Go!. Paperwork. My Morning Jacket. Kings of Leon. Country: Roger Creager. Jason Eady. The Trishas. Cory Morrow. Radney Foster. Bruce Robison. Reckless Kelly. Eli Young Band. Bleu Edmondson. Carolina Rain. Zac Brown Band. Kevin Fowler. Cooder Graw. I've also become a huge fan of revival music (not the religious kind), freak folk, and the like.

Movies: My top 5: Shawshank Redemption, Swingers, High Fidelity, Walk the Line, and Scott Pilgrim Vs The World. Comic book movies are my crack, anything with zombies has a special place in my heart, and Sci Fi might be my favorite thing ever.

TV: I have a few shows that I watch, but I ditched cable and went with Hulu Plus. Frankly, I don't miss TV much.

Food: I don't have a favorite food, really, though when I eat, I try to keep it healthy. Anything spicy goes down easy.
Six things I could never do without
1. Exercise.

2. Music, and lots of it.

3. Dogs. My two hyperactive heelers, specifically.

4. Tools. I'm a tool guy. I fix things. I make things. It's what I do.

5. Something to read, be it mindless fun or deep and thought-provoking.

6. Water. And no, I'm not being facetious or anything- I drink so much of it that, when I was a kid, my mom took me to the doctor to have him test to see if I was diabetic. He came back and said "No, he doesn't have diabetes, he's just really, really thirsty."
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My mind is a terrifying vortex of thought. Superman, Carnitas, Paper towels, My DVR, Books, Music, Batman, Film, Batman Films, Zombies, Cleaning my apartment, Work, Play, Beer, Running, My hands, My pants, My dog, My apartment, Work, Sex, Food, Music, What's on TV tonight?, Rubick's Cubes, Science, My truck, Fixing my truck, Austin, San Antonio, Dallas, Working out, My budget, and how if we were all immortal, all the matter in the universe would eventually be people, and then what would we do?
On a typical Friday night I am
Fridays vary a lot for me. I'm a flexible, spontaneous person, so this question bothers me a little bit.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I hate this question.
You should message me if
You're an active, outdoor loving kook like myself.

Also, if you're savvy enough to use proper grammar, spelling, and the correct version of words like 'to/two/too.'

If you enjoy intellectual pursuits, and don't mind geeking out from time to time (or even all the time).

If you're a dog lover, a music aficionado, a beer connoisseur, an equal rights supporter, a Star Wars geek, an artist, or simply have a lust for life and all its seductive allure, definitely drop me a line and say hello. And hopefully a great deal more.
The two of us
