I don't have a detectable ego. I do have one, but I keep it to myself. I'm incredibly shy, and at times socially awkward. I don't drink, dance, smoke tobacco, or care about team sports at all. I absolutely love animals. I cuddle with animals even when I know they will give me an allergic reaction (only certain animals). I have a good sense of humor, I love making fun of myself, and I like to be silly almost all of the time. In many situations, I have no shame.
Music is incredibly important to me. I don't expect you to like my favorite, Lamb of God, but I do expect you to like my close second, Black Label Society. If your favorite music is modern pop music, modern country, or most rap (I do have a couple guilty pleasures), then we probably will not advance beyond friendship. I'm not a trend follower. I don't care about pop culture. The radio has a very small effect on what music I like. I'm disgusted by celebrity news/gossip.
I don't like people who readily raise their voices, or overly-dramatic people, or attention whores. I actively try to not be a jerk. When my schedule allows it, I volunteer at a soup kitchen.
I'm incredibly affectionate. I like to give and receive lots and lots of affection. This can be in a friendly way, romantic way, or sexual way. Sometimes those ways can overlap. Not always. I am monogamous. I am a great lover. If I am dating someone, then I will always offer to drive. I will open your door for you, always let you order dinner first, and always let you get the bill. Just kidding on that last one!
I haven't been camping since I was a teenager but I have been wanting to do so for a while. My idea of a good time is just sitting somewhere peaceful and having long discussions and cuddling. Listening to entire albums beginning to end. Museums, concerts, theater. Watching Rachel Maddow, Star Trek: TNG, Real Time with Bill Maher, the original X-Men, or sci-fi/action movies. Playing Super Mario Allstars or Mario 64 or Final Fantasy III.
Feel free to ask me anything.
I am compassionate, affectionate, and rational
I've had a few people say I favor Elijah Wood. Bah, I don't look like that halfling fairy. :P
I've been told by more than one person that I made them feel safe, and that my voice was soothing and comforting.
Movies: My all time favorite is The Matrix. I love the entire trilogy, The Animatrix, and Enter The Matrix. The Terminator series, 300, Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, Watchmen, Iron Man 1&2, Star Wars series, The Lord of the Rings trilogy, Inception, Seven Pounds**, Mr. Holland's Opus**, Office Space, Alien trilogy, Predator 1&2, Zombieland, Transformers from 1986 (which I listed before the modern ones were even announced, I HATE the new ones), Over the Top**, The Wraith, The Princess Bride**, The Green Mile**, The Shawshank Redemption**, Back to the Future trilogy, Pitch Black, Chronicles of Riddick, Underworld series, Borat. When I first saw the preview for The Hangover, where Mike Tyson punches the guy to In The Air Tonight, I cracked up for like a full five minutes. The X-Men movies are almost there too, it's a love/hate thing.
TV: Star Trek: The Next Generation**, original Knight Rider, Real Time with Bill Maher, Keith Olbermann, Rachel Maddow, The Young Turks, X-Men, Spiderman, Raw**, Smackdown, Impact, That Metal Show, Transformers
Music: I could easily list a dozen songs that could bring me to tears. If you don't like at least some Black Label Society**, then I honestly think that there is something wrong with you, Lamb of God, Tool**, Alice in Chains**, Rage Against the Machine**, Led Zeppelin**, The Beatles**, Pantera**, Lynyrd Skynyrd**, Disturbed, Mastodon, Soundgarden, Kansas**, Queen**, Bad Company**, Godsmack, Sevendust, ZZ Top, AC/DC, White Zombie, Hellyeah, Mudvayne, Metallica.
Food: I love food. I'm not too picky. My favorite is Asian. Anything from made-from-scratch stir-fry, to a Chinese buffet, to a Japanese hibachi. I don't care for grits, oatmeal, quiche, chicken soup, some gravys, rosemary, or anything with eyes staring back at me. At some point I would like to start eating super healthy. Like for example chicken, broccoli, and onions**, grilled with a dash of pepper, and water for lunch and dinner 5 days a week. I would just need the smallest bit of encouragement and support.
Video Games: Super Mario Bros. 3, Super Mario World, Sim City (SNES), Final Fantasy III** (The cart has a roman numeral three on it; I'm not Japanese, so it's three, not six.), Mortal Kombat, MK2, Killer Instinct, Final Fantasy VII, Killer Instinct 2, Tekken 3-6, Mario 64, Quake II GXmod, Homeworld**, Quake 3, Homeworld: Cataclysm, Half-Life (Original orange box single player before you ever heard of it. /hipster; I never got into Counterstrike or the new stuff), Everquest** (2001 - 2005), Splinter Cell Pandora Tomorrow and Chaos Theory, Battlefield 1942, Desert Combat, Enter The Matrix, Battlefield 2, Supreme Commander, GTA: San Andreas, GTA 4, Guitar Hero, Rockband, Gears of War, Elder Scrolls: Oblivion & Skyrim.
The woman of my dreams.
How I could have won a debate or argument from days ago.
Why are there so many Leeroy Jenkins out there? Why are people so irrational and willfully ignorant? Why don't more people care about justice for all?
How much longer until Bill Maher is back on the air?
I am a professional wrestling fan. There's much more psychology to it than you would think. The winners get paid more than the losers.
** Why are some things starred up above? You get two hints: 1. I've already told you and 2. Notice that onions are starred. Yep. That.
If you're willing to get to know me, and if you're honest and upfront. No games, please.
If you aren't local to me, and want to chat, that's fine too.
