I'm a true nerd. But I also enjoy martial arts, working out, guns, and indoor rock climbing (though I haven't climbed in a while).
I was raised by parents who constantly wondered if I was their kid or not because I was so different from them. I only listened to classical music until middle school.
I think of being with friends and around people as a nice side dish. While a wonderful addition, I'm just as happy being alone.
Physically: P90X... Again... Woot? Getting ready for my next belt test.
Personally: Reading books. My friend and I have a bet on how many books I'll read this year. I just hit 40.
Disappearing: One part of this is I'm small. The other is martial arts. When I want to, or don't think about it, I cease to have a presence and end up accidentally sneaking up on people.
Conversations: I pride myself in the ability to talk to anyone about anything for at least 5 minutes. Engineering, sci-fi, theatre, sports, theoretical physics, you name it.
This one was pointed out to me recently -
Finding out information on people. Apparently I'm really good about learning the nuances of people incredibly quickly. We recently hired two new people at work and I know them better than anyone else. Weird.
My penchant for non-sequiturs. This goes back to me having random leaps in logic/conversations.
Movies - Murder in the First, Shawshank Redemption, The Boondock Saints, Shall We Dance (the Japanese version), Milo & Otis (fave kid movie), The Dark Knight, etc. (ask me for a more complete list)
Music - Metallica, Dethklok (ridiculous, I know), Lake Street Dive, Muse, Radiohead, Arturo Sandoval, The Seatbelts, Beethoven, Johnny Cash, Nobuo Uematsu. Pretty much anything but reggae, hardcore rap, and hardcore country.
Food - Thai, Japanese, Mexican, in that order.
BTW- Seeing the music that I've listed, does anyone have a new suggestion for me? Hmmm?
2 - Martial arts. What should I teach the students next. When I should take my next test. How to get inside my Sensei's defense while sparring with him (he's 6'2", I'm 5'6").
3 - Media. Figuring out the next book to read, or band to listen to, or movie to attend.
4 - Theoretical Physics. Like, could you actually teleport if you could figure out a way to bend the 3rd dimension by tapping the powers of the 4th dimension (and/or extreme amounts of gravity). And, if that works, could you only travel to places that you've been to before because you can prove you've been there in the past?
5 - Female OKCupid users with the fake mustaches. There are so many pictures of them. Why? I almost feel like it's the female version of the topless male. But instead of trying to make themselves more "sexy," they are trying to prove they are funny/unique. But seriously, can someone PLEASE explain this to me?
6 - What Okcupid has to say about me when they're listing me on someone else's page. You know what I mean. Do they say I'm less spiritual? More desiring of sex? More likely to become a super hero.... feel free to tell me.
7 - Now that I've been doing moderating on OKC, I'm curious if I've been reported.
And something more embarrassing.... Somewhere out there is a video for my Elementary school with me and 3 friends air-banding to Weird Al Songs (Smells Like Nirvana, The White Stuff, and I think.... Blame it on the Drain). I will be forced to murder anyone that can find this video.
And a new one.... I've apparently been nominated to be a moderator for the site. Odd.
