Tall eccentric, decent-looking, never married/no kids, reclusive, fit, impractical, did I mention eccentric? How about reclusive?

I am erudite, inscrutable, and ignominious
Tryin' to hold down a job and paying off my student loans. Wasting my time online, hanging out with my nieces, Tae Kwon Do, reading, writing, chatting, City of Heroes (an MMO), arguing politics, writing poetry, and generally being a derelict.
That statistically, I should exist, but I'm never seen in public!

Books. Caffeine. Imagination. Solitude. Writing. Self-deceptions.
1) are perfectly happy having nothing to do with alcohol, television, or "god,"
2) are reasonably ethical, sane, decent-looking, and smart, and
3) think you would find the sundry facets of my geekiness (see above) interesting enough to spend time with.
Hilarious true fact: I actually look better than my profile picture.
