My self-summary
Apparently I'm weird and a bit abrasive. A geek, a gamer and obsessively independent.

Random facts;
I've worked the same job for 17 years, casino dealer.
In that same time I've owned 13 vehicles.
I'm apparently the Grim Reaper of cars.
I once ran myself over with a truck, which was fun explaining at the ER.
I've been to China and Canada and aiming for Thailand next year.
I once stopped an industrial grade acid leak with nothing but chocolate bars... no wait, that last one was MacGyver...
What I’m doing with my life
You mean besides attempting to prove my mousey worth by over throwing the earth?
I’m really good at
I don't think I've even stuck to any one thing long enough to get "really" good at it. ADD? Yeah I guess I'll blame AD... hey look something shiny!

I have gotten passably good at photoshop over the years. I actually use GIMP (GNU Image Manipulation Program) but I know that's a technical detail only other hobbyist would care about.
The first things people usually notice about me
These days I'd say the shaved head. After 20+ years of long hair damn it feels good to have it all gone.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I think my favorite stand alone book of all time would be Inferno by Larry Niven and Jerry Pournelle. It’s the story of a Sci-Fi authors journey following Dante’s path through Hell. (and yes as an atheist I do see the irony in this pick)

A tie for second place would be between Wizards First Rule by Terry Goodkind and World War Z by Max Brooks.

So a short list of some of my favorite authors: Larry Niven, Terry Goodkind, Brian Lumley, Steven Erikson, Harry Turtledove, Robert Jordan, Tad Williams, Frank Herbert, lots of others. I think at last count I had around 300 books in my library.

My all time favorite movie would have to be Fight Club. Runner up RoboCop. No really, really, stop laughing, that movie is a lot deeper then it seems! Listen to the directors commentary track some time.

Also Highlander 2 was EPIC! I don't care what anyone says, B movies rule!

TV- I cut my cable years ago but I still watch plenty of shows. NetFlix marathons have very much become a thing I love. I think I watched most of Daredevil in one sitting. I also get together weekly with friends for a TV night where we keep up with the week to week for shows like Walking Dead, Agents of Shield, Falling Skies, Doc Who (though that one we've fallen way behind on) and a few other old Sci-Fi classics we're re-watching like Stargate an Red Dwarf.
The six things I could never do without
I’m pretty sure you could drop me on a deserted island naked, come back a year later and I’d still be alive.

Actually I wouldn’t still be there a year later, I’d have built a raft way before the year was up and be gone!

Yeah I’ve spent way to much time thinking about this scenario.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Apparently how I’d get off the damn island.

Step one: Kill Gilligan.

Really after the 2nd or 3rd time he screwed up their escape from the island they would have thrown his ass to the sharks…

Step two: Avoid the smoke monster...
On a typical Friday night I am
Hate to say it but home most of the time. I work weekends so Friday is my Monday! Ugh… The down side of the casino business.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
When I was a kid we had 5 small abstract paintings of western landscapes in the second floor hallway. One day I turned them all up side down. No one noticed, so I left them that way for 6 months, then I turned them all right side up again.

Still no one noticed…

Most people have inner demons, mine seems to be a small gremlin that likes to rearrange other peoples nicknacks.

I also have an odd habit of putting non food related items in the refrigerator... you know, it's like a filing cabinet... with a light... that's cold...

Ok so I have a tendency to misplace shit.
You should message me if
If you think the dolphins are plotting against us! Really, you can't trust anything that smiles that much, they're like talk show hosts with fins!
