I like people. I see potential, both realized and latent, and it excites me. I am also friendly and, I'd like to think, plenty approachable, so if you're anywhere between mildly curious or hot-and-bothered-intrigued, just chat with me a bit, I enjoy the dance of personal and interpersonal discovery.
I'm good at making people laugh, I'm good at strategy games, I am very good at finding ways to be amused, I excel at making silly faces and voices, I am a genius at being a goofy bastard, and a savant at not taking myself or the world too seriously, while simultaneously finding a way to better both in the meantime.
Barring that, my roguish grin and the twinkle of mischief in my eye. My left eye. I've blinked and rubbed and washed, but the recalcitrant sparkly little thing just won't come out. It causes misunderstandings at times when I am witnessed looking at children.
Oh and back in the day I read the living crap out of the Animorphs series.
Movies: Ratrace, Amelie, the Avengers tie-in movies, Tom Yum Goong, Ong Bak, Sukiyaki Western Django, The Princess Bride, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Secretary, Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World, Serenity, Quills, Sherlock Holmes, Boondock Saints, Zombieland, Sean of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, Inglourious Basterds, Up, Public Enemies, just about everything Disney, Pacific Rim, the recent Planet of the Apes movies, Guardians of the Galaxy x10, aaand a load of other movies that aren't coming to mind during this particular stream of consciousness
Shows: Mythbusters, Family Guy, Robot Chicken, Adventure time, Korra ... mmm I don't a whole lot of TV otherwise. I watch a couple series here and there with specific people as something to share with them, though. Oh, and I've been getting back into anime more these past couple seasons, though mostly via online binges.
Music: I love a plethora of songs from a wealth of genres, but I don't end up often liking everything a group does. A few notables: Mumford and Sons, The Good Lovelies, Fair to Midland, Daft Punk, Bare Naked Ladies, Metallica, Nightwish, Rammstein, Woodkid, The Birthday Massacre, Niyaz, Reel Big Fish, Cake, Red Hot Chili Peppers, aaand more that I can't think of, potentially due to my propensity for picking up a single song from a group and not really pursuing them further. I suppose you could call me musically ditsy, among other things.
Food: Food! Good kinds! I love spicy, savory/umami, complex, and then spicy some more. Sushi, Middle Eastern, Mexican, Traditional Chinese, Thai, etc.
I also like tea, wine, beer, and the taste of victory.
-Books (read: all books) (hehe)
-Tea (I have this mate and chai oolong mix right now that is SO GOOD)
-Sex (preferably with consenting adults or otherwise my hand)
-Adventure (Random trips into the woods, spontaneous road trips, spontaneous booze-gatherings, sabbaticals from humanity, getting lost)
-Intellectual engagement of some sort (A bit of a cop-out here, but somewhere between science, philosophy, or even something geeky like strategies/builds for a game, a lack of this would drive me insane, whether I'm living in a cave or a house. Which wouldn't be so bad, my own mind is a decent conversationalist.)
...No, really. One of the common "critiques" I get after some unexpected comment or another is that I "think too much," which is to say, quite furiously at every topic and event under my mental nose, as it were. No assumption, decision, or urge is left void of examination. Socrates famously said, at his trial for heresy, "The unexamined life is not worth living." I fully agree with this, especially on topics typically considered sacred or profane, and I think the criticism assumes that one's excess of thought outside of an accepted norm must come at the price of simply feeling or experiencing, or being decisive. This is not necessarily true, but rather more of a reactionary prejudice I think, and at least for my case I know that I leave room for feeling, experiencing, decisiveness, etc. and am quite happy with it.
Sometimes just spending a quiet evening at home with a book and a mug of tea.
Though perhaps here is a good place to reiterate the fact that I am Polyamorous and kinky.
(P.S. It has come to my attention that "jiggly bits" sounds decidedly male-centric to some. To that I say: You aren't looking hard enough. Wiggle yourself and observe in a mirror, it might help XD )
