My self-summary
I am an inspirational figure, often seen posing majestically on top of cliff faces and skyscrapers that I have free-climbed in record times. I negotiate terrorists into trying bacon 'just to say they've tried it,' and have designed a line of paper clips which can combine to form fallout shelters in ten easy steps with minimal carbon footprints. On weekends I teach animals to play the soundtrack to 'Casablanca' on the piano dressed in coats and tails. Women are overcome with passion at the sound of me ordering meals at the drive-thru in iambic pentameter. I brew beer that is so bittersweet that it has taught hermit crabs the meaning of heartache. I have speared sharks, walked with wolves, and helped hawks with their penmanship. I am known on the island of Saint Lucia as 'the white death,' in the Rockies as 'strongo' and by my friends as 'hey stupid.' Clowns fear me and mimes gossip as the sight of me. I counsel exotic birds over hair loss issues. Sperm whales exist because of my legendary negotiating skills. I know a little about a lot, and a lot about a little. I have memorized Shakespeare, delivered a particularly large baby, and won cliff-diving competitions in the Himalayas.

The short version is: I'm a brewer who is an avid reader, writes (just for myself), loves to lift and train, and loves animals. I also like wasting time on imgur. I'm very athletic, very smart, extremely loyal, have eyes that change from green to blue (happens a lot with us Irish), and tend to laugh a lot.

Although I am fairly lighthearted and joke around quite a bit, I do take life seriously, am extremely goal-oriented, and plan for the future. I just don't see why life shouldn't be something to laugh at.

Seeing as I'm on an island I'm open to getting to know people.
What I’m doing with my life
I've been a brewer, (a great) teacher, bartender, and like to write (for fun). Playing a mean game of scrabble. Being really, really ridiculously good-looking. Making references.

Finding food. I'm extremely food-oriented. Bribe me with food, and I can be made to do nearly anything.
I’m really good at
Other than that... I'm a fair hand at writing and brewing, I cook like an angel ... lots of stuff. I'm good at stuff. Stuff is the operative word here.

Referencing stuff. If I said something that sounds a bit unusual then it's a safe bet I made a reference that fell flat.

Impressing ladies. Here's a review.
"10/10, would let him touch my butt again" - my dog.

"Chris Evans. You're Captain America, dude." - random bar acquaintiances.
The first things people usually notice about me
I've been told I look like the lovechild of Gabriel Byrne and Michael Fassbender , someone from one of the 'Bioshock' video games, and several others. I only know one of the people on that list. This happens to me at least twice a month.

Also, when I don't laugh people keep telling me I look like I have whatever the male version of resting bitch face is. A cashier at a cafe I study at said that they all thought I was 'mysterious' until I started joking with them.

I asked a couple lady friends how they'd describe me, and they said "Charming... caring, understanding, [I'm] pretty sure you could always get me to laugh." Figures - not one thing about my butt *sigh*.

Also, another friend describes me as "Harry Potter mixed with Obi-Wan, with some serious Han Solo overtones." It's THE nicest thing anyone has ever said to me.

And I apparently I have 'incredible eyebrows'. Yep. That's how I'll draw you in!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: way too many to list, but sf/fantasy, biographies, and history are favorites. Hemingway, Henley, Pablo Neruda, Tennyson, Robert Jordan, Brandon Sanderson, Stephen King... a ton of others. If you like Name of the Wind, then we need to talk. NOW. I'm just starting on a book by Joseph Campell.

Movies: mostly stupid humor (Young Frankenstein, Zoolander, Hot Tub Time Machine, Murder By Death etc) and classics. I usually love Woody Allen (Midnight in Paris, Bananas) or anything with with Bogart. If a woman breaks out a 'To Have and Have Not' DVD or line then my brain does that thing where it takes all my focus on breathing for a bit. Action movies are fun, too. Firefly speaks to me on a spiritual level.

Music - All over the board, but 90s music will always have a special place in my heart. Lindsey Stirling and Woodkid are my studying music. At the moment. I have never been in a situation that couldn't be improved by the Rolling Stones' 'Gimme Shelter'

FOOD: Italian, Irish, Mexican, Vietnamese. The best part of going out to eat is seeing if there's something new I can try to make at home. I like to cook a lot - last month someone gave me an Irish cookbook and I railed through four or five recipes in a day. It's relaxing. Just no cheese. Also: not really a big fan of eggs. No idea why. Craft beer, obviously.
The six things I could never do without
Not in any particular order...

1) Books
2) Interesting beer
3) My family
4) Trails/gym
5) My pets
6) A creative outlet

If they mean survival stuff then I guess I missed the call of the question, didn't I?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to do well at my dream job, the future, etc. "Why do people do that" Also, 'wouldn't that be an awesome idea for a story?'

What's this shirt made of? I swear to god it's so soft it must be made of synthethic chinchilla fur. Someone pet me.

My thought process tends to be a lot like the dailyoddcompliment.com

As you can see, I'm like a Calvin & Hobbes comic strip. I tend to have several thoughts running through my head at any given moment if I'm not zeroed in on a project or a conversation or what have you
On a typical Friday night I am
At the gym. Quietest night of the week there, and if it's not crowded then it's almost meditative. If I'm not there then I'm probably exploring the island.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I go absolutely stupid for about fifteen seconds when I see a pretty girl with a braid and a book. I don't know why it's such a turn-on. It just pushes all the right buttons. And good smiles? Goner.

At any given time my PC probably has at least a dozen tabs open and I'll forget what's there. If it looks like I've been on here for three days straight I'm probably not obsessed with answering all the questions so much as forgotten that tab's open.

I have a pinterest. I use it to ogle food while I'm at work.

Aaaand if I don't see any books listed in the 'likes' section I sometimes get a suspicious squint going.
You should message me if
You're sweet, loyal, and can hold a conversation. Love a girl who is smart and fun, and a little sass never hurt anyone. Just love laughing.

No serial killers
No mimes
No vegans
Yes pizza
