My self-summary
I live in Michigan and enjoy traveling. If you're not in MI, don't be shy.

My red highlights are blue now. Update! Purple now. A nice dark purple.

Quirky, clever, and cute. Adherent of the Oxford comma. Proud Morton's Toe possessor. There's more to me than than most people would guess, but that's only because most people don't pay attention.

Intellectual curiosity and kindness are two of the most valuable traits a person can have. And good calves don't hurt.
What I’m doing with my life
Being an atheistic infidel heathen. Spending my weekends at art/music shows. Or an out-of-town convention/event. And sewing.
I’m really good at
Reverse engineering.

Calming people.

Details.

And...

...suspense.

----------
What I’m bad at:

Making first impressions.

Fighting.

Taking a hint.

----------
What I’m bad at but enjoy anyway:

Bowling.

Playing the accordion.

Dating.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Museums/galleries, dive bars, conventions (of just about any kind), meetups, MST3K, audiobooks, podcasts, rodeos (yes, really), philosophy, game night, firing range (I'm no pro, but a damned good shot), live performance, Borderlands (Brick 4 Lyf!), debates/lectures/demos, road trips, motorcycles (I do have one), estate sales, sewing/crafting/making, writing (I'm a periodic writer at an arts/entertainment blog). In no particular order; take your pick.

Music: The Chunders, Maggie Smith and the Dames, Soul Shift, Ecclesiastes, the Grumps, Ill Wind, Dog Party, Noog, Death on Vacation, the Wrong Numbers, Try the Wine, John and Miriam, and yes, I made all of those up just to prove to myself that no one reads these lists of bands, and why would anyone.

My favorite movie is "A Clockwork Orange" and my favorite band is the Buzzcocks. I did not make those up.
Six things I could never do without
At least one of my sewing machines.
At least six of my fingers.
At least two wheels.
At least one quart of water.
At least 85% of my IQ.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why it is I can find people with 80+% "match" percentage, in my age range, in my geographic area, who match me on the tough stuff like atheism and no kids, and none of them email me back. And yet sub-literate, sub-30% matchers and scammers find me like a goddamned lighthouse.

I don't know what else I can do. WHAT DO YOU PEOPLE WANT
On a typical Friday night I am
Lately, I've been spending Fridays in with a cocktail and Xbox, but it all depends on what's on my calendar.

Let's talk about ideal nights.
You should message me if
...you like snarky women who make oblique references and are lousy at smalltalk.

If you've read all this, let me tell you a little secret.

People who ask me questions that are already answered in this profile — and I mean the big obvious ones like where do I live or am I single or (gods help me) what do I like to do (there are NINETEEN things in that likes paragraph, ASK ABOUT ONE) — show me that they haven't bothered to read my profile. I genuinely find this insulting. And when they try to cover it up by saying, "Sure I read it, I'm just trying to get to know you," I'm doubly insulted that they think I'm stupid. Or they've disqualified themselves by being the boringest people in the world, maybe, whose only method of "getting to know" someone is asking them questions THEY'VE ALREADY ANSWERED. Hey I know! Let's use all this connectivity and computing power to ask "how are you?" back and forth eternally! Have a bunch of essential biographical information easily available if I just used my eyeballs for 30 seconds? FORGET IT! Let me just ASK you instead! You can copy-paste your profile to me bit by bit as I ask the most fundamental questions that you've already done me the favor of putting in a space DESIGNED to skip over the tedium of asking questions like "so where do you live?" Why be thoughtful or engaged or interesting when I can just ask YOU to repeat yourself?? WAY FUNNER!!

(There are people who will find this funny, and people who will not find this funny. The former should message me.)

Oh look at all that sunshine — I'm going to go have a nice walk now. :)
