If I've stalked your profile, there's a good chance that it's because something in it has been flagged. I'm addicted to flagmod, and I can't help but look at the occasional profile. Either that or I'm just randomly going through profiles, looking for interesting people and inappropriate images.
I like: A certain degree of geekiness. Intelligence; the more, the better. Moderate cynicism. Alabaster skin. Charles Tyrwhitt catalogs. Proper grammar and spelling. Conversations about everything and nothing that go on for days. Maturity. Childishness. Interesting quotes. Dynamic memory allocation. Athletic girls. Musical ability. Horn-rimmed glasses. Penny Arcade.
I intensely dislike: Fear. Stupidity (especially my own, which my field reminds me of constantly). "I can't describe myself/I can't summarize myself in a little box" profiles. Tone deaf buskers. Total snobs. Closed minds. Decaffeinated coffee. People who believe that I'm nice despite all evidence to the contrary. The substitution of single letters for whole words.
I love things that are beautifully simple. Then again, I also love things that are incredibly ornate. I really enjoy the interplay of ideas with reality; both computer science and law involve the use of words to change behaviour, which is alarmingly close to magic.
-I'm better at video games when I'm so drunk that I can't stand than when I'm sober. Call that my drunken competency.
-Making an ass of myself, and/or figuratively inserting my whole leg into my mouth.
-Research and reasoning.
-Reading the Income Tax Act, which mostly means "not reading most of the Income Tax Act"; the skill is knowing what you can ignore.
Then again, I also seem to be incredibly forgettable.
Recently, people notice my incredibly nerdy t-shirts. Onyxeyes encourages my habit, which might be a bad thing. However, it has been a good way of starting conversations.
Movies: Donnie Darko. A Problem With Fear. Napoleon Dynamite. American Beauty. Fight Club. Anything with John Cusack. Boondock Saints. Ghost World. The Nightmare Before Christmas. Edward Scissorhands. The King's Speech. Other assorted ridiculous movies too numerous to name at the moment.
Music: Matthew Good (with or without the Band), Mother Mother, Hawksley Workman, Metric, Modest Mouse, Age of Electric, Radiohead, Wil, pre-Maladroit Weezer, Death Cab for Cutie, Sufjan Stevens, Ben Folds, Pomplamoose, Lyle Lovett, and on, and on, and on. Generally, as little rap and/or hip-hop as possible, but that's not always a solid thing.
Food: Good chinese food (a rare thing, it seems), thai, east indian, most things involving chicken, duck (duck), goose, nectarines, nutella... but really, I'm not picky.
My attention tends to wander, and I often find myself wondering why exactly I was doing something, because I'm thinking about something completely different.
That being said, I tend to spend friday nights hanging out with onyxeyes. Recently, we've spent time babysitting (squee!) or consuming substantial quantities of wine with my parents.
