My self-summary
I'm a boy who likes words and nerds, though I've been told I really mean dorks. But mainly, I like sweet queer people who have good politics.
What I’m doing with my life
I make things. Recently I made mazes for birds and bicycle-part sex toys. A while back I made a business. Then I decided that all work and no play was no fun, so I cashed in my chips. I'm living a life unencumbered by work for now.

UPDATE: I start work again soon - I know for whom, but not what I'll be doing. Any good adventure contains mystery - and snacks.
I’m really good at
Things that have no productive social value. I'm more interested in taking things apart than in contributing to the GDP.

That said, I have a number of theoretically useful skills. I was an EMT for a while. I can pick locks. I have two mostly-finished inventions that multiple beta testers have told me I should patent, but they are both a) dangerous to the end user, b) of highly questionable legality, and c) fuck patents. So I'd be an ideal partner in actual crime.
The first things people usually notice about me
Those are some cute socks I'm wearing.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I like light non-fiction like Bill Bryson - like the Discovery Channel, he provides a veneer of educational respectability on what is essentially brain candy. I've read quite a lot of classic dystopian shit.

Movies include "The House of Yes", mainly for Genevieve Bujold. "Dial M for Murder" in 3-D was also special, and I'm partial to a good heist flick. My two favorite films are definitely "Hedwig and the Angry Inch" and "Harold and Maude" though.

I used to listen to super-indie shit, so I'd probably list some Irish punk podcast here. These days, I'm more likely than not on the Spotify top 100.

I forget about TV as soon as I watch it, but in 2016 I enjoyed Black Mirror, GoT, and Peaky Blinders.

N.B. - If compatibility in media tastes is important to you, I'm probably not the person for you. My brain doesn't work like that.

Peanut sauce, fresh-baked bread, and homemade coconut milk ice cream. Though my favorite food category is undoubtedly sandwiches.

Reading this, the impression I have of me is "different like all the different people". Perhaps accurate, but I'm very happy with who I am.
The six things I could never do without
Blank Scrabble tiles
Tabbed web browsing
Zombie apocalypse daydreams
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My million-dollar ideas that will never make me a million dollars. Like the BedFridge. Or my backdating mail service for late college applications or rent checks. Vitamin-fortified alcohol and cigarettes. The unifying element to my inventions is that they are born of my personal malingering.
On a typical Friday night I am
oh god.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Umm...I used to prefer emacs to vim? Really, the closest I get to shame is that at age 22 I was a real estate broker.
You should message me if
You're a member of the Apostrophe Liberation Front, or can at least give some rescued apostrophes new lives as Oxford commas.

You are OK with  non-monogamous relationships.

You think the terms "gender normative" and "intersectionality" are obnoxious and elitist yet indispensable nevertheless.

You find awkward dorkiness endearing, and maybe have a touch of it yourself.

OK, where else do you put more keywords?
Words like poly and polyamorous usually bring to mind pagan Renaissance Faire Trekkies. I'm not one of them, thanks for asking.
Feminism is important.
Similarly, I support anarchism but I'm hardly an anarchist. Call me a non-denominational anti-authoritarian.
