::UPDATE:: I am no longer a tinner, but due to OKC not allowing me to change my username unless I spend money, I'm forced to state that here. I've moved on from trade school to higher education. Specifically English and Language Arts. I want to be an editor/professor 8 years from now.
What I’m doing with my life
Being alive.
I’m really good at
Poetry, prose, cooking, working with my hands, fixing things, jury-rigging what I can't fix, pool, darts, dominoes, Texas hold 'em, dancing, being in the right place at the right time, keeping my cool in uncomfortable/stressful situations, conversation, debate, misusing "quotation marks," using (parentheses) way too much.
The first things people usually notice about me
Either my eyes (they're really blue) or that they think they know me from somewhere.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Too many books to list, so here's my favorite authors: Terry Pratchett, Stephen King, J.K. Rowling, Edgar Allen Poe, H.P. Lovecraft (despite the staggering racism) J.R.R. Tolkien, Morgan Llewellyn, George R.R. Martin, Allen Moore, James O'Barr, Douglas Adams, Michael & Jeff Shaara, Max Brooks.

Music: Good music.

Movies: Generally I like the comedy and horror genres, along with movies one would describe as Cult-Classics. Here are a few of my specific favorites (which may or may not fit those molds). V for Vendetta, The Crow, Saw, The Nightmare on Elm Street Series, Repo: The Genetic Opera, Kickass, the new Batman series (sorry purists, Christian Bale just does it better), The Ring, Both Star Wars Trilogies, The Lord of the Rings, The Harry Potter series, Monty Python's holy trinity (Life of Brian, Holy Grail, Meaning of Life), Dogma, Clerks, anything Jay and Silent Bob really.

TV: The Daily Show, The Colbert Report, Dexter, Adult Swim, 24, Dr. Who, Firefly, The Simpsons (even after all these years...), Archer, Game of Thrones (up to season 5; yeah, I'm a book snob), Vikings, Mystery Science Theater 3000.

Food: I like strong flavors. Think garlic, jalapeno, onion, cilantro, that type of thing. Hmm... It seems I have a salsa recipe to patent and perfect (In that order).
The six things I could never do without
Books, Movies, Music, Art, The Beach, The Woods.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Things that infuriate me. It's something of a bad habit.
On a typical Friday night I am
...enjoying a typical Friday night.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have the same birthday, jagged scar, and vision disability as Harry Potter.

I listen to audio books to lull myself to sleep. The fact that the usual genre is short horror stories probably has quite a lot to do with the... ahem... *interesting* dreams I find myself waking up from by shooting bolt-upright like a television waking-from-a-nightmare stereotype crossed with some kind of toaster pastry. Maybe a pop tart? Let's go with a pop tart.
You should message me if
-You are primarily interested in making a new friend, and agree with me that "Dating" should follow (not precede) "Friendship."

-You have at least a pretty good idea of where you want life to take you.
