Of course, I do have a job, other hobbies, and enjoy meeting new people and hanging out with friends. Recently I've been making a point of hanging out at a local board-gaming pub to meet new people, and had some success and lots of fun.
I'd like to get into better shape, but it's a lot easier to keep up an exercise routine when one isn't doing it alone.
I used to sing in a choir, and kind of miss it. I don't watch much TV as such, but the Netflix streaming service is great. I like gadgets and tinkering with computers, and have an academic interest in religion, skeptical thought, and general science. Lately I've been trying to learn to draw, although I don't have a whole lot to show for it yet.
"There is no life I know
to compare with pure imagination.
Living there you'll be free...
if you truly wish to be."
Edit: Moved recently from Dallas to Austin, and definitely looking for new cool people there. Say hello! :D
Seriously, though, I've been told I have a good sense of humor, and am generally very easy to get along with.
Also, I'd like to think I'm a fairly smart guy, although I'm probably not the most impartial judge of that.
Otherwise, I'd have to guess I register as a big, quiet guy until I get to know someone. I tend to be polite and a little shy with new people, at least until I can get to know them a bit.
(This is in addition to lots of various comics, which I can absolutely go into if you're interested.)
Movies: Three Amigos, Fifth Element, Shaun of the Dead, Incredibles, Cannibal(The Musical), Up, Arsenic and Old Lace, Scott Pilgrim, Tucker and Dale Vs Evil, various MST3K, Cloud Atlas, old Disney stuff, pretty much anything Miyazaki...
Shows: Futurama, Doctor Who, Walking Dead, Firefly, Star Trek(: Pretty Much Anything), Stargate, Mythbusters, Archer, Dexter, Psyche, Lost Girl, Burn Notice... Netflix streaming is a good thing. :)
(Also some anime, see the above note on comics)
Music: Currently fond of BT, Dragonforce, Regina Spektor, Jonathan Coulton, Symphony of Science, Supreme Beings of Leisure, Bowling for Soup, and Architecture in Helsinki. In a word, "eclectic".
Food? Food is good. I tend to fall into a groove, going to the same restaurants and getting the same things, but that's more convenience than preference. Allergic to peppers, which is VERY inconvenient here in Texas, but spice via peppercorns and curries and such is very tasty.
I am a bit of a beer snob. I don't tend to drink all that often, so when I do I prefer something tasty rather than brownish water.
A computer(of some kind),
Air conditioning(negotiable in cooler climate, not Texas summer!),
and a good book.
Does anyone else like to imagine hypothetical conversations with people that don't exist? Maybe that's just me.
Is that private? Not really, no. It is important, though, and I need to leave SOME things to talk about on a date. :)
Also, if something in my profile really abruptly turns you off, I'd appreciate a heads-up on that, even if you're not interested in pursuing something. I make an effort to always say what I mean, so I may not change it, but I'm always interested in suggestions to help refine this thing, and there's not a really good way to get useful feedback.
(If I've visited your profile more than once and not messaged, I apologize... I have a bad habit of browsing when I'm not in a position to send a well-thought-out message. If I seem interesting, say hello!)
