My self-summary
I would call myself eccentric, but I have not yet found a specific dollar amount that is the defining point of eccentricity, so who knows.

I'm split between a love of the outdoors and a computer geek. I enjoy exploring rustic areas or walking around a city. Some days I sit around home taking notes from a pile of books. I enjoy both history and current events, especially discussion thereof. I love food and cooking, and consider myself an epicurean. I am fond of adult beverages, though I am not one to drink to excess by any means. I really enjoy sampling all the different styles of beer, ale, mead, and spirits with friends.

I am a nerd, I like science fiction and fantasy, either in books, TV or movies. I enjoy some electronic games, especially FPS style games or the like. I also enjoy "old-fashion" RPG games with friends.

I am a bit old fashioned, I open doors for people and display general courtesy. I have even had some people become "offended" by these behaviors, which astounds me. To me it is right and proper, and is a sign of respect and consideration of a person, not a dismissal that they are incapable or lesser in any way.

I am always looking for some new friends to socialize with; I enjoy meeting new and interesting people and sharing time with them. I am also always on the lookout for fun dining/drinking partners who are up for going out and hitting a place with a decent selection and trying new food experiances as well as old favorites.

Those are some of the basics about me, My mind is almost always running, I get very involved in work or my projects/hobbies. I tend to hyper focus on things when I have the time to do so. I warn you in advance, it has annoyed people. I have a fairly full life.
What I’m doing with my life
I spend a good amount of time being busy with work, but happily I telecommute. Other than that I get tied up with working on my hobbies and activities.
I’m really good at
Cooking - Specifically meats, soups, stews, and breads. I also enjoy doing a variety of ethnic dishes.

Creative Construction - Give me odd bits of metal and lumber and I can make most anything.

Making people laugh, sometimes it is not even at my own expense, imagine that.

Holding educated conversations about history, science, theology and other assorted trivia.
The first things people usually notice about me
Typically my goatee is the first thing noticed, a close second would be my eyes, they are an unusual color.

Most people get the impression I am very stoic, I am a bit reserved, but most of the time it is saving up for a good one-liner.

Oh, and I have been told I look good in tights.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Terry Pratchett, outstanding author.
Literary classics from around the world
The romance sagas and the collected stories of the men who were men. (think 14th century mafia)

Dark Comedy, Action, Adventure, and Sci-fi. It is a very long list,

TV: (when I get around to seeing it)
This changes so often (provided I have time to watch TV) it is not worth keeping updated.

My music collection is way eclectic, everything from AC/DC to Japanese Imperial court music... Odd eh?
Six things I could never do without
1. My watch (I just feel naked without one)
2. My cellphone
3. Coca-Cola
4. My computer and internet.
5. My car
6. This is a state secret.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Projects, which one to do next, how to go about it, etc.

At least 10 minutes a day, absolutely nothing... I make a point of it.
On a typical Friday night I am
Either trying to enjoy spending it with friends, getting ready for the weekend, or trying to figure out a interesting restaurant to eat at. (There is not a lot of variety around here, but a few good ones)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Wow, ummm... I am a sucker for cute fuzzy animals.
You should message me if
First and most importantly, I am looking for a woman that is independent. I do not want a princess to rescue, I want a partner that will pick up her own ax so she can "slay the dragon." I want someone who is OK with herself, and wants a companion, not a trophy. I am sexual, I would like someone else who is as well, but that also is not the end all and be all. I want someone I can physically be intimate with, but that does not always mean sex either.

If you like history, going to events/activities, getting together to cook or drink (or both!), you have a dark or sarcastic streak, a sense of humor, a keen wit, your seeking a guy who can be equally a gentleman and a scoundrel. In short I'm looking for a fun-loving, unabashed/unapologetic woman who is sure of herself as a friend and more.
The two of us
