My self-summary
Alright let's get down to brass tacks.

Why would I be the perfect romantic companion for the Zombie Apocalypse?

First off, I'm fat. Now society sees that as a detriment, but I see that as a win for you, since I can afford to go without food much longer than someone with a low BMI and we're all going to have to ration once the dead rise.

Second I am Polyamorous/into ethical Non-monogamy. Now again this is a turn off to some. But how many groups of survivors have been torn apart by jealousy? Not an issue when you're willing to share.

Three I am a feminist. That means that when you tell me your plan to find the vaccine and save our fallen civilization I won't question it out of some chauvinist assumption that leadership should be done by men.

Plus I'm a progressive and that means that when we do rebuild society we can make it a lot less hostile and focus on equality as we slowly push back the tide of undeath.
What I’m doing with my life
I own an arcade and tabletop gaming space. This is a perfect place to hunker down and hold off the endless waves of the damned.

Having to fix and move pinball and arcade machines of the past 30 years has left me with the ability to Solder and a lot of knowledge about how to block doors with an X-Men Six Player Deluxe cabinet.

Running the place, while it leaves me with a mostly nocturnal schedule, has taught me to hire and communicate with a diverse group of companions. That's an invaluable skill when your survivor party starts infighting. And my habit of being awake all night means that I'm perfect for overnight watch against the walkers.

Additionally having access to a commercial kitchen gives us some great options for communal meals and having to meet health inspection standards regularily means we'll be all set to convert it to a place for sterile medical procedures.
I’m really good at
House of the Dead and Aliens Armageddon have really given me a lot of hands on training as far as speedy precise target acquisition. After all if you can't headshot and conserve ammo what use will you be in the blasted wasteland that once was Steel City?

My years of playing Crazy Taxi and my skill with a manual transmission mean that missions to find supplies out among the ruined metropolis will be viable no matter what vehicles we salvage. Also I commute into the city every day and that means I've got 20 years of experience dodging traffic via secret back routes and when the main arteries are stuffed with the rotting hulks of mankind's hubris, we'll need to know those.

Also I like to think I'm a good caretaker to my dog TJ and that's vital because dogs are immune to the pathogen and we'll need their help to scavenge and fight off the horde.
The first things people usually notice about me
You'll notice that I look fantastic with a big bushy beard. So keep in mind that once hair care is no longer taken for granted and becomes just another reminder of the world we lost, I'll still look great.

Some of those fresh faced types look fine now. But imagine them with three months of patchy beard desperately trying to fight off a slavering monstrosity.

I like cheap pizza a lot. And pizza is caloric-ally dense so it's a great food when you don't know where your next meal is coming from.
Six things I could never do without
We never knew how much we could lose and still survive until the dead took it from us.

But so long as I have my friends, my dog, a good book, a place to lie my head, something to think of, and someone to talk to I can survive and even thrive.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I like to think about quotes, and hopefully we can carry some of them forward once civilization has collapsed and they could all be lost forever.

Even though he was a misogynist douchebag Hemingway had a point with this quote, "There is nothing noble in being superior to your fellow man; true nobility is being superior to your former self." I like to think of how I can improve myself. Like anyone I've done some things I regret, but I hope I can be someone better today and in the future.

I try to live by this wise creed: "If you are thinking you are winning."

A quote from Warren Ellis because I like him, "Be authentic to your dreams. Be authentic to your own idea about yourself. Grind away at your own minds and bodies until you become your own invention. Be Mad Scientists."

As with most non-asexual humans I think a lot about sex, but often in a nerdy way. As John Mitchell Cameron said, "Sex, like music, is a universal language. We want to use it to introduce character, evoke emotion, propel the plot. Sex is also the funniest thing I know. How the hell do we find ourselves in those positions?"
On a typical Friday night I am
These days I am usually at work, but every second I'm prepared for the first sounds of the hungry dead, and once they rise . . . well will calendars even mean anything or just be another reminder that every day is a struggle to survive?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I've done things I'm not proud of, but they got to where I am today, and I've learned from those mistakes even if I've lost some people I really cared for. But we've all lost someone haven't we?
You should message me if
You ever wonder whether it's mankind who is the real monster.
The two of us
