(There was a whole bunch of floofy bull malarkey here, bah-leeeted!)
I do most of my work from home. Since the workplace seems to be the most common place for people to meet new people and make new friends, I'm kind of cheated in that regard. I'm sure that it probably contributes to my social awkwardness, as well.
I am stubborn, loyal, and a complete smartass.
NOTICE! ADVERTENCIA! ACHTUNG! ATENȚIE! FIGYELEM!
(I thought this was still in here but I guess I took it out) I have a housemate that's also my ex girlfriend. Time and time again I'm told "That's not a problem" and then by the third date it's a problem. If that sounds like you, then exit stage left.
I'm also in the middle of starting a small business. I'm going to get rich selling bubblegum to your kids.
One of these days I'll get a real job and be a chef or something sexy......
When I'm not doing the stuff that pays the bills, I'm busy going to lots of concerts, wrecking my liver, picking up bits and pieces of different languages that I will probably never learn well enough to amount to anything, and attempting to play drums. I just recently got accepted onto the county search and rescue team, so I've been having fun learning how to find y'all when you get lost in the woods.
I never seem to make time to read fiction, but I loved Anne Rice's Vampire Chronicles, and The Hunger Games trilogy (That reminds me that I need to finish Mockingjay.) For non-fiction I'm usually reading some O'Reilly book or other tech publication that somebody has written to explain the latest fad technology that my bosses have become infatuated with and wish for me to implement.
The last book I read for fun was How to Talk to Your Cat About Gun Safety. I highly recommend this book regardless of whether or not you own a cat....or a gun.
Silence of the Lambs, Memento, Mulholland Dr., Blue Velvet, Pulp Fiction, Taxi Driver, Network, 11:14, Inglourious Basterds, Stay, The Machinist, Requiem For a Dream, Eyes Wide Shut, American Beauty, Se7en, Fight Club, The Butterfly Effect, How to Train Your Dragon, and Hostel.
I'm a metalhead and have been since I was a teenager, and when I say "metal" I don't mean crap (in my opinion, obviously) like Slipknot, Godsmack, and Job For A Cowboy either. I listen to a lot of 70's progressive rock, mostly Pink Floyd (my favorite band ever), Jethro Tull, and Peter Gabriel-era Genesis. I absolutely love Scandinavian folk music, and Scandinavian folk influenced rock and metal. On top of this, I also enjoy small to moderate amounts of 70's funk, 70's R&B, reggae, rockabilly, punk, 80's pop, blues, Motown, old school American country & western, and even some rap. About the only music that I will dismiss solely on it's genre is probably smooth jazz.
It has been brought to my attention that while I mention heavy metal all over this profile, I don't list a lot of the metal bands that I listen to. So... let's fix that, shall we? This list is NOT all-inclusive, or in any particular order but it's a start:
Black Sabbath, (older) Judas Priest, Nightwish, Decrepit Birth, After Forever, ReVamp, Epica, Immolation, (Echo of) Dalriada, Obituary, Death, Eluveitie, Korpiklaani, Kivimetsän Druidi, Finntroll, Villieläin, Running Wild, Alestorm, Tyr, Cruachan, Månegarm, Nevermore, Warbringer, Volbeat, Therion, Exodus, Overkill, Metallica, Arkona, Vreid, Xandria, Carcass, Candlemass, King Diamond, Mercyful Fate, and on and on and on.
I also enjoy some very non-metal stuff such as Duran Duran, Supertramp, Joss Stone, Adele, Marina and the Diamonds, Florence + the Machine, Imagine Dragons and First Aid Kit.
Robot Chicken, Metalocalypse, Modern Marvels, Pawn Stars, Justified, Once Upon a Time, The Americans, The Bridge, American Horror Story, Grimm, Rizzoli and Isles, Resurrection, Salem, The Millers, and Alaska State Troopers, Northwoods Law, Cops. Aaaand... don't laugh, but So You Think You Can Dance. I said don't laugh, dammit.
Steak, fried chicken, buffalo wings, gyros, shawerma, pizza, tex-mex, Chinese, kimchi, oysters, and lately I've been getting into Indian food.
Right now I'm just thinking about what other sorts of bovine excrement I can put in here that will convince you to keep reading and maybe message me.
To be honest I'm not really sure what I'm expecting to get out of this. I clearly need to expand my social circle and acquaint myself with more people who are interesting and who find me interesting. It would be nice to have somebody that I can call up and go "I'm bored, let's go do something." I'm not necessarily looking for a girlfriend, or a booty call, but whatever happens happens.
