My self-summary
My general qualities: creative, loyal, nerdy.

I am a big fan of wordplay, although I often come up with it a minute or two too late. I am consequently (or unrelatedly?) awful at scrabble. I pay too much attention to meanings and will crack up at an unintended double entendre at the most inappropriate times.

I enjoy just about everything i've ever done, if you're genuinely excited about something, chances are i'll enjoy it too.
What I’m doing with my life
I mostly just work. I am also a television nerd. I follow more shows than is probably safe.

I am generally happy to do whatever with friends.
I’m really good at
Thinking ahead( Keeping my word. Making a plan. Following directions. Listening. Skipping the BS. Making dessert.
The first things people usually notice about me
Usually I go unnoticed until I open my mouth. If I'm in a group, it'll typically be after a long silent period, and (hopefully?) something astute or hilarious [probably just obscure and weird, though]. People will laugh [out of kindness] and then wonder "how long's that guy been here?"
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Candide (the best of all possible satire?), Douglas Adams, The Red Queen, Godel, Escher, Bach: An Eternal Golden Braid,

Movies: Anything with a Rifftrax. Or almost anything else, really. There are 3 known movies i didn't enjoy: Juwanna mann, marie antoinette, and the divine secrets of the yaya sisterhood.

Music: Girl Talk and Hospital Records are foremost lately. I like most anything, though, at the right time. Even country has its moments.
Six things I could never do without
I always know where my phone, keys, laptop, and portable Rifftrax collection are...and I obviously can't do without the essentials of life.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Things that are truly tangential to whatever is actually being discussed. People eventually learn to smile and nod at my puzzlingly offtopic comments.

One time, I went for a walk and ran into a trio of kids who were up to no good. One had a pillow, another was carrying a small dog, and a third was carrying a kickball. They were camped out at the side of the road waiting for a passing car, to do what I still can barely imagine. My failure of imagination to even comprehend their plan often serves as inspiration to explore more childlike wonder.
On a typical Friday night I am
Alphabetizing. Blaspheming*. Clever. Different. Elsewhere. Farsighted*. Gerrymandering*. Heedless. Inappropriate. Jazzed. Kissing. Looking. Meandering. Needling. Ostriched*. Playing. Quiet. Rioting*. Spoofing. Trumping**. Underwhelmed. Vacilating. Whiffing. Xenarthral. Yowling. Zen.

*Metaphorically or fictionally only.
** with cards, not politicians.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I've been on okc for the better part of a decade and have nearly lost hope in sending messages, as it is [statistically] a complete waste of my time. Nevertheless, I let slip an errant message once in a while. I consider it like buying a lottery ticket. Which makes your pleasant response like winning the lottery to me.

I know that can be interpreted as desperate/sad, but it's really just realistic/hopeful.

Better: sometimes I edit my profile just to get more people to look at it.
You should message me if
You give good banter or are interested in musing about the metaphysical implications of the movie Her. I am profoundly upset that I cannot rewrite my operating system to achieve the Singularity.
The two of us
