My self-summary
Here are some things you should know about me.

I prefer to eat my chocolate chip cookies one spoonful at a time!

I'm sarcastic and I love teasing friends and partners. If you can match me tit-for-tat, I want to hear from you.

One of these days I will grow my hair and beard out long enough to braid together. I will then spend the day roleplaying as Chewbacca in public.

I'm geeky. Love books, games, and watching shows. But not all of the time. Sometimes I like to have adventures!

Some of my adventures this year will involve: randomly going to cities/states I've never been to, white water rafting, a zombie run, hiking in parks I've not yet been to, and whatever else fits into my budget and brain.

I want a long-term relationship. But I'd be happy with just plain old platonic friends. It's possible! Seriously! I was just a bridesmaid for a close friend I met off of OkC some years back. Just between you and me.. Her new husband is fantastic and I'm glad she chose to keep him :p
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a certified EMT-B. You know, the guy that lives in an ambulance. But not the cool one that gets to give all the drugs. Probably won't be one of those(Paramedic) for a couple years. Kicking down doors and taking vitals. Probably not kicking down doors, actually. But lots of vitals!

What this means is I have a career that matters. I'm also broke. And because I'm working as an EMT will remain broke. Shit you not, I would probably make more at Wal-mart. Or working at the adult lazertag place. They start at the same hourly rate. Lmao. Definitely bar-tending. But it's more important to make a difference. It makes it easier to hold onto ones sanity.

Also do some bartending for money. It can be a very fun job. Also awkward. There is so much awkward. If you're bored, ask me to tell you a story.

... By reading this you're sworn to secrecy... I'm totally training to be a ninja! Yup, I've been spending 2-3 days a week learning BJJ and Aikido. Something more entertaining than just going to the gym.. And is also why I'm constantly scratched up and bruised. So no, it's not my cats being abusive.
I’m really good at
Cuddling. Mostly with cats, but sometimes a pillow will get dragged into my sleepy clutches. Open to substitutes!
The first things people usually notice about me
Sing this to Aerosmith-" Dude look like a(bearded) lady." Hmm. Maybe that doesn't work, too many consonants. Ai well, y'all get the point! Long hair, beard, and a bunch of scars.

-Alert- A beard is missing. Presumed kidnapped by corporate policy. Last seen with Gillette. Reward offered if returned.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
For several years I had a small novella listing many of my favorite works of literature and cinematics. Each with a small blurb about why. Nobody else seems to give a shit, but if you do for some reason let me know. I saved it. Suffice to say. I like books. I like movies. I like television shows. Fantasy, sci-fi, and anything analyzing how utterly fucked up the human mind is and the terrible things it does to us will generally make me happy.

When it comes to music my tastes are eclectic. There is a song or artist in just about every genre that I like. Tend towards rock and, lately, folk/bluegrass.

Breaking Benjamin
Mumford and Sons(which leads to Trampled by Turtles, Greensky Bluegrass, and more)
If you combine a violin and/or a bagpipe with my rock I will probably love it.

If you want to whine about your tractor eating your dog right before a grizzly bear did a cannonball onto it.. I'll probably hate it. After Johnny Cash, most country just got.. to lame and poppy for my tastes.
The six things I could never do without
-Cooking. No, seriously. I love cooking for others. I try and invite friends over to cook for. I even drove down to Cleveland recently just to cook for friends who were having a rough week. Hate cooking for only myself.

-Stockholm Syndrome. It ensures my kitties love me!

-Irreverence. Nothing is sacred. You have been warned.

-Honesty. Hope I don't need to explain that one.

-Toilet paper. Seriously, grab the wrong thing to wipe with while you're out in the woods and all kinds of bad happen.

-OCD. Because that gives me a sixth thing. I need a sixth thing. It asks for 6 things.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I daydream all the time. Story ideas, pranks, "Why the fuck are these people driving 20-30 mph under the speedlimit when it's a small snow flurry with perfect visibility. Aaargh!"
On a typical Friday night I am
Typical? Ha!

My last few fridays have consisted of work, hanging out with friends/going to dinner, breaking my comfort zone by going alone to a bar for the first time, and staying home and hiding. Not much typical.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm an introvert who finds large social gatherings with strangers to be incredibly uncomfortable. Unless I'm getting paid, in which case I can talk to anyone about anything. This makes me sound like a whore.
You should message me if
If you like Zombies and you'd like to compare zombie tattoos.

If you hate boredom. I may not be everyone's cup of tea, but I've never been accused of being boring.

Or you can do it because sometimes it's just nice to have a conversation with someone who wants a long-term, preferably(though it doesn't have to be as long as it's consensual on all fronts) monogamous relationship. And knowing that if it does move to a date then sex is NOT the goal in the first 5 minutes. Obviously I need enough time to unset the table and make sure all the dishes are stacked by type and size. There's no OCD here.
