My self-summary
If I come across as an arrogant bastard, that's because I am one.

On the other hand, class only looks like arrogance from below :).

Well, only partly joking, but interestingly (even to myself), I'm also quite kind-hearted, intelligent, tolerant, open to all kinds of views on life (if they're half interesting and not copied from the nearest billboard), interested in and intrigued by life, humans, nature, science, technology, language; authentic, dependable, enthusiastic, affectionate, playful, serious, sensual, eloquent, with a sense of humour and an easy smile.

I love to talk about & and do nearly everything (esp. crazy ideas), cuddle, have sex, enjoy life and at the same time make it hard on me.

"We are all made of pieces, and these are joined together so inconsistently that every single component at each changing moment plays its role for itself; the difference between what we are today and what we are at another time is as big as the difference between us and others." (Montaigne)
What I’m doing with my life
Well, mainly I'm living it ...

I like to work (on my own just as well as with others, fortunately I can do both, being self-employed as an IT consultant), and I like if I feel the 'flow' of something well done. I also like to do just nothing at all and look at thin air.

I like to dance, run, watch movies and plays, read, think, listen, talk, play, paint, work out, meditate (but do some of it much too little).

I like to experience life with others and also to spend days on my own seeing no one, I like to learn and grow and be aware of me and what life 'asks of me'. I like stretching my brain and my heart as much and as often as possible (stolen from blue_lightning_).

I'd like every day to have 27 hours so I could sleep longer.
I’m really good at
thinking clearly & effectively as well as in inefficient circles, laughing, fooling around, being morose, hoping, talking, being efficient, crying, playing, working, sleeping, drinking (lots of water, tea, Coke), being desperate, knowing what's good for me and doing the opposite, wanting something and its contrary.
The first things people usually notice about me
depends, of course; what I hear most often: my smile, my rather wry humour, my openness, my intelligence, my innate contradictions and ambivalence
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Lots, e.g. books by Douglas Adams, Elmore Leonard, Lorrie Moore, Terry Pratchett, Bill James, William Gibson, Iain M. Banks, films by Almodóvar, Coens, Godard, Iñárritu, Jarmusch, Kubrick, Tarantino, etc., music by Bob Dylan, Dire Straits, early Bryan Ferry, Sting, The Beautiful South, Leonhard Cohen, Wir sind Helden, Joss Stone, Bach, Mozart, Haydn, Strawinsky etc.

TV shows ... I don't know many, haven't got a TV for many years, and am very happy for it (saves much time and brain matter).

Food's important to me, I'm no all-in (or all-out?) vegetarian, but I prefer wholesome food without meat from all over the place(s): Japanese, Turkish, Italian, Indian, Pakistani, French, Mexican, Persian, Korean, etc. I was born and raised in Austria, but still most of Austrian cuisine turns me rather off because of fats, meat, sugar.
Six things I could never do without
Books, films, music, computers, food, Coke Zero :), which are all not as important as friends, love, passion, intimacy, sex, work etc., but I don't see those as things.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
life, love, people's ways of coping, everything I can think about.
On a typical Friday night I am
Sure, but I am also on Mon, Tue, Wed, Thu, Sat, and Sun days and nights.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
nice oxymoron; mostly anything, as long as you're willing to listen. If I'd killed someone, I probably wouldn't admit it, but as I haven't (knowingly), this is not germane.
You should message me if
you prefer to make up your own mind, you're not scared of unusual points of view, you're interesting, funny, bright, or sexy, or even all of those; if you're all of those, please stop making up your own mind for a moment and just message me right away ;-).
