My self-summary
(I realized it still said "single" here in the description, when I changed my status a while back. Now I'm back [dramatic shotgun racking] to fix that mistake. I am not interested in pursuing a romantic relationship at this time, because I'm already in one! So keep up hope, because I met her on this site, but I'm not available.)

This page will continue to be a work in progress, until it isn't. But what can you do?

I tend to be a little reserved when around people I don't know all that well, but I get more gregarious once I've had time to get comfortable. Expect sarcasm and puns in roughly equal measure.

As to general attitude, I used to be a "t-shirt and jeans" guy, but moved on to "t-shirt, slacks, and an overshirt" (aka "business lazy"), though I don't have a problem throwing on a suit and tie or just a blazer if things need a little class.

A lazy afternoon reading or catching up with friends is more interesting than a long hike to me, but suggest something to pass the time and I'll likely be interested.

I'm an avowed geek and I work in the video game industry, so I tend to be up on the latest happenings, even if I don't play a whole lot at home anymore and don't touch MMOs with a ten-foot pole. If you've got similar interests, great! If not, that's also great. Different strokes for different folks.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a writer and editor for a video game publisher, protecting future generations from the horrors of "Someone set us up the bomb" in this modern era. Call it being an Engrish Repairman.

I read a lot, I keep up to date on all sorts of things, and I enjoy my coworkers, so life certainly isn't as stressful as it could be. All in all, I'm enjoying myself, but I'm certainly capable of admitting that there's room for more.
I’m really good at
Puns, general trivia, teaching small children how to fistbump.

Apparently I give good hugs, but I wouldn't know.
The first things people usually notice about me
Probably the beard or the glasses.

I'm rather tall, or so I'm frequently told (by short people).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Much too long to list here. My favorite authors are Terry Pratchett, Neal Stephenson, and China Mieville.

Movies / TV: I've been without cable for a couple of years and my TV reception is awful, so I've learned to live without TV pretty well. That said, Hulu keeps me up-to-date on Parks & Rec and The Daily Show. Other shows I enjoy are Community, Archer, Sons of Anarchy (though it's kind of gone off the rails last season), and Breaking Bad. RIP 30 Rock.

Music: If it's got a beat, I'll probably listen to it.

Food: It says "Mostly anything" over on the side there, and that's about the size of it. Sushi? Yes! Thai? Okay, if it's not too spicy... You can put pineapple in anything and it would be an improvement. I prefer a decent restaurant to a loud bar, but fast food and/or takeout is a viable alternative. The best orange chicken comes from the holiest of hole-in-the-wall Chinese places.
I'm currently on a quest for the perfect Fish & Chip. If you've got suggestions, I'm all ears.

Lately I've been attempting to cut caffeine out of my evening meals, and coincidentally go a teensy bit healthier about what's going into my body.
The six things I could never do without
Something to read
The necessary apparatuses to read (eyes, glasses, etc.)
Electricity
A sense of humor
Not caffeine anymore. I am sad about it.

*TBD, as per my whim.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How'd it get burned? How'd it get burned!?
On a typical Friday night I am
Either blowing off some steam after work with friends/coworkers getting some good food, or enjoying a movie at home. Bear in mind that I'm not dating on the "typical" Friday night, and I'm hoping to change that. That's where someone else comes in. Maybe YOU!?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
My stoic exterior degrades in relation to my proximity to cute animals. You have been warned.
You should message me if
You're still reading this. Congratulations on making it this far, by the way.
You happily call yourself a nerd/geek of any sort.
You're a firm believer in the Oxford Comma.
You're quick to catch the perfect moment for a "That's what she said!"

If you listed Ayn Rand or one of her works in your favorites section, I'm going to give you a long hard appraising eyebrow. I get to admit to being a snob about something, right?
