My self-summary
OKCupid should start offering seminars on basic communication.

Sending email that reads "hi" in its entirety is like sending an empty email. Please don't send me empty emails.
----------
Quirky, clever, and cute. Adherent of the Oxford comma. There's a lot more to me than than most people would guess. That's because most people don't pay attention.

I'm honest. Honest in the helpful truths way, not in the "I'm not an asshole, I'm just being hooooonesssssstt" way.
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 down.

Details.

And...

...suspense.

----------
What I’m bad at:

Making a first impression.

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, meetups, MST3K, audiobooks, podcasts, rodeos (yes, really), philosophy, game night, live performance, Borderlands, 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.

My favorite movie is "A Clockwork Orange" and my favorite band is the Buzzcocks, if that helps. Oh and Christopher Hitchens is (was) my favorite debater. Also, I have a favorite debater. (I am not an arguer myself.)
The 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
How difficult it is to be funny in these profiles. I'm a big fan of comedy, and laugh my ass off on a regular basis—and sometimes make other people laugh theirs off, even. But not here. Oh no, not here.
On a typical Friday night I am
Most Friday nights, I wind up staying in with a cocktail and Xbox, because I tend to go out drinking on Thursdays. When I do.

Let's talk about ideal nights.
You should message me if
...you like snarky women who make oblique references and are lousy at smalltalk. (1: I'm fine, thanks! 2: Yes, I'm single, like it says in my stats. 3: No, I haven't had any "luck" here. 4: What I'm "looking for"—eventually—is monogamy. As in dating one person. 5: Yes, I'm going to hold it against you if you ask me any of those questions, since I just answered them.)

Or if you want to co-op Borderlands with me. (But only if you do NOT play the berserker. That one's mine.)

PS Be aware that I probably won't message you first. This isn't some "gender role" nonsense, it's my way of weeding out submissive boys.

Super-deep PS:
Don't message me "hi." Please PLEASE, I'm begging you, do NOT email me "hi." And yes, "hi cutie" is still just "hi." If you want to email me variations on "how are you?" all day, you are failing at this.
