Eventually I may actually think of the perfect and most witty introduction, but that is not today. Apparently I need to actually mention the fact that I am gainfully employed and live on my own; I work in the Loop and live in the Gold Coast (I either live in a lavish and expensive home or a normal apartment; I'll let you guess which one is true).
Some infallible internet tests inform me that I am an INTJ, make of that what you will. I'm a bit of a nerd (classic sense, not in this new 'cool/hipster' sense); I read a ton, know way too much about way too many things, enjoy playing video games on occasion, and despite all this, I am actually decently athletic. I'm pretty much an open book, so feel free to actually message me to find out more.
I could create a list of all the books on my bookshelves (2 1/2 floor to ceiling shelves full), but odds are, if it's well written and not too self-indulgent, I'll enjoy it. Lately I've been on a bit of a sci-fi kick (with Game of Thrones thrown in); I don't know if it's just because I've been bored and want some escapism or what. I've always enjoyed Steinbeck and Dumas, as well as Stephen King on the lighter side. I minored in English, so there's also a bunch of pretentious sounding stuff in there, too.
Musically, I can be rather eclectic, but other than rap/hip-hop or electronica, I pretty much can listen to anything, given my mood (not really a big top 40 fan, but I don't hate most of it). I tend to listen to albums rather than singles thrown together into a playlist. Lately I've been listening to Bad Religion a lot, with some old Green Day, Lucky Boys Confusion, Nirvana, Decemberists, The National, Bowling for Soup, Oasis, Beatles and Simon & Garfunkel mixed in (amongst others).

If you can string together more than one sentence with proper grammar and no shorthand. If you know when to use 'whom' in proper context.
You understand either of the following sentences: 'As FemShep I romanced Liara and as BroShep I romanced Jack'; 'I bought a second GPU for an SLI setup and [current poorly ported game] still runs like shit'.

And yes, I am aware that I put casual sex up there; though, not for any reason other than I'm not averse to it, and if someone out there sent me a message asking if I wanted to just grab drinks and have a one night thing, I wouldn't dismiss it out of hand (and be rather impressed with her moxie), but it isn't really my motive for this profile.
