My self-summary
Hello! I'm Anthony and I'm freaking the heck out!

I'm a big ol' geeky weirdo currently surviving somewhere in Northeast Philly. It ain't pretty, but it's home. I'm a super shy/awkward guy just trying really, really hard to meet/connect with someone who may share something in common with me, or everything in common with me. I'm not great at the whole socializing thing, so that kinda hinders the whole meeting someone thing. I work a lot, and when I'm not doing that I usually hang out at home. I prefer the indoors to the outdoors, but I still like to go out and do stuff when there's stuff to do. My interests include music, interactive media (a.k.a. video games), and other forms of media. I have a wide ranged sense of humor, and my favorite word is "prestidigitation."

My dream pets are either a pig or duck. Or both. I would love to someday overcome my fear of flying and travel. That would definitely require a travel buddy. Ideal travel destinations include England, Iceland, and Japan. I'd also like to attend a con of some kind. A Comic Con or a PAX...something like those. I'm a big shower singer, and despite my gruff, manly exterior, I have no problem identifying things as "cute" and "adorable." This includes myself.

With all that said, my mission to form a super awesome relationship with someone who is super awesome. Ever since I hit the big 3-0, I've been worried my chances at romance are slipping away and I'll have to resort to desperation. Oh god, I don't wanna be desperate! That sounds like a nightmare! See? Freaking the heck out. At the end of the day, I just wanna meet someone who accept me for the odd goofball that I am, and would want to spend sickening amount of time together doing everything or nothing or both. I want a relationship that sticks forever like peanut butter sticks to crackers. I love peanut butter crackers!

I should also point out that I am crazy, but totally not insane.
What I’m doing with my life
By day, I'm working my glamorous "full-time" retail job. By night, I'm solving mysteries with my hippie friends & their dog. Or sleeping.
I’m really good at
Random facts, staying up really late, crafting mix CDs/playlists, making ridiculous meals, eating said ridiculous meals, listening, alphabetical order, bad impressions & accents, microwaves, spending money, mumbling & keeping it real.

I'm really bad at: long division, smiling, taking compliments, communicating with words, making sense, climbing ladders, poker, using an oven & taking directions.
The first things people usually notice about me
If I don't get my hair cut regularly (which I don't), my hair gets pretty wild. I also wear shorts year-round, and people tend to point that out when it's below zero. And people usually compliment me on my choice of t-shirts.

Oh, and there's that whole quiet thing...

(Food)
I like food, food tastes good.
The six things I could never do without
My family & friends, of course. My busted-ass iPod is still required. Air to breathe would also be nice. Food is also kind of important. And viewers like you.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Life. Squirrels. Life with squirrels.

Why do I dream about zombies so often?
On a typical Friday night I am
I don't like this implication that Friday night is special. I've always preferred Tuesday nights.

Regardless, I'm either working or at home. If the planets align, I might spend time with friends outside the home & workplace.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm secretly a ninja. Keep that one in your pocket.

Besides that, I have nothing to hide.
You should message me if
If you're looking for a sincere, nerd-ass guy who has some (major?) social quirks & a yearning for a meaningful relationship, then why not send a little message? Who knows; could be the best darn thing you do today. Nothing to lose, something to gain. And I really don't want to end up a crazy hermit mountain man who lives alone in a shack...at least not by myself!

Also, if you think "Teenage Dirtbag" is one of the greatest songs ever written, then why aren't we already talking?! Or why aren't we singing the song from a rooftop at 3 in the morn?!
