My self-summary
Hi, stranger! I'm Kyle~

I'm just a big, twisted kid, only-just settling into a sense of professional belonging, which I find pretty fucking rad. I've an affinity for spicy cooking, veteran friends, and walking. The walking bit is important, since I'm mostly paid to do that. :3

I'm very sensitive to toxic behaviors, and highly responsive to solving my own emotions, feeding from a one-two absurdist/nihilist big-picture perspective. Most anything is easy to process from a high enough perch. :D

There's also a budding minimalist in there, as I look around at all my stuff, with my big fancy perspective, and daydream about owning just four pieces of furniture and a Swedish Vallhund. That'd be cool~ :3
What I’m doing with my life
I'm improving my business/people skills as a Supervisor at one of them thar big box retailers. Business stuff is interesting, people are hard, and my team is a good team. :3

Now that I have this comfy pile of vacation time racked up? I'm planning a road trip! Looking like a tour of Abandoned America at this point. :3

Also(!): I've teamed up with a buddy to build up his garage shop. He gets my woodworking/basic carpentry, and I get to tool around with his welder(I'ma learn to weld! >:D).
I’m really good at
Fixing the broke thing(if it can be fixed).

Crises. Like... not that I'm always in one, but I tend to keep my cool in the face of all hell breaking loose.

MST3K! I /can/ enjoy a movie even as I make fun of it, though. This also happens with music. SAIL.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Most recent read: The Go-Giver
Super-short, packed with good things. I think I'll be re-reading this every few months just to make sure I stay on track.

I read... sometimes. It's silly, 'cause I really do love to read, but the existential dread following the end of a book/series is a pretty strong deterrent...

I... don't use my TV for TV... not to be that pretentious "No TV" dude, I just get plenty of media from the internet, and don't feel the need. I like GoT(Need to catch up! D:!), loved Breaking Bad, and I'm fielding recommendations for my next series.

My music runs from Kaki Cole, to CellDweller, to Tricky, to Nickel Creek, and really all over the map. Recently I've been listening to a mix of Barenaked Ladies and various metal groups... Oh, and Steam Powered Giraffe! A thing happened about four years ago that damaged my voice, but now it's pretty much better, and so I'm getting back into singing as much as possible. :3

There is a thing that happens, where I'll ask "Do you want to go on an adventure?" That always, /always/ means I'm looking to push my limits with spicy food. That said? I like most ethnic foods! If I could, I'd let my weekly diet revolve through Burritos, sushi, curry, and whatever new recipe I've chosen to put through my pressure cooker(it's so cool). :D
Six things I could never do without
Play. ouo
Pre-emoji type faces. :3
Fascinating humans(all humans are fascinating)!
My EDC.
The subtle knowledge of my own insignificance, even though I'm awesome. :D
Spicy food.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Energy, cyber-security, radiation, the dangers of pseudo-science, business stuff, enjoyable narrative, relationship mechanics, The Future, the ridiculousness of politics, a comfortable balance of intersectional feminism and people skills, nihilistic absurdism, singable music!

That's a pretty good sample, anyway. :3
On a typical Friday night I am
Working! Or not. My schedule is normally all over the place, with a couple weekly islands of stability. The craziness I work with these days leaves me happy to chill at home, though good friends and new foods often call to drag me away from my comfortable bolthole.
You should message me if
I don't really have rules for this. I think you'll know if you "should." I find messages in general to be exciting, so maybe you just want to feed into the optimism of someone who doesn't get harrassed here on a daily basis.

Seriously, though, the ladies here have to deal with a lot. o_o

P.S.- Maybe you want to find out why I bought a locket and put my own picture in it.

Or you want to know what the farmer said when he lost his tractor.
