My self-summary
Hello! More than anything I'm looking to meet people who will talk about things other than the weather. I've got an open ear and an open mind, if you're game I'd love to meet up and talk even if it's just the once. I eat, drink, and sleep movies. I read a bunch too. I really enjoy walking and talking to people and other outdoor related activities. I'm also fairly keen to try new things. Need a partner for your jewel thieving cat-burgularing jobs? I'm your guy. I'm not afraid to step outside of comfort zone, if you don't see your favorite thing listed here, I am more than happy to try it with you. I'm looking to meet and know other human beings. If we hit it off, awesome. If we break up a few months later, so it goes. I don't believe in "the one", I believe in discovering and understanding the other.
Take chance on me!

I should mention that I am deaf in one ear and have the condition colloquially known as "Asperger's Syndrome" (though now officially umbrellaed under the Autistic Spectrum). There is a handy wikipedia entry on Asperger's: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Asperger%27s_Syndrome If you have any questions, by all means, ask away.
What I’m doing with my life
Right now I'm a Lube Technician at Jiffy Lube which sounds a little more complicated than it is. I recently earned my transfer degree and am attending the University of Washington where I am pursuing a degree in Comparative Media studies. I tend keep busy.
I’m really good at
Humor, I like to think I'm decently funny, which of course means I'm not nearly that funny. And then this perhaps a cliche, but I *am* pretty good at listening and have a well practiced patience. Analysis and information, I've become very good at analyzing works of art or literature and expressing constructive feedback as well as explaining broad or complex subjects to a third party. I'm a bit of a database, comes with being an aspie I guess. If you've got some creative material you'd like feedback on don't hesitate to call on me! If I think of something else I should post here I'll come back so so should you.
The first things people usually notice about me
My wealth of knowledge. Or, on good days, that I'm funny.

The six things I could never do without
Movies, brain-food, normal food, humor, oxygen, the ability to count.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Stories and story-telling, the moral lessons of PBS's "Arthur", ethics, philosophy (without being pretentious about it I promise I promise) humor, etc.
On a typical Friday night I am
Watching a movie or something, because movies are my drug. Possibly homework, as well.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
There's nothing I hate more than a stranger who silently walks at my pace, three steps behind, and seems to follow me wherever I go.
You should message me if
You read this sentence. AHA! GOT YOU!
