My self-summary
I don't like writing about myself, I find it hard to find interesting things about me to write about. I don't doubt that there are some interesting things about me, the likelihood of a person in there 30s not having anything interesting to say is tiny and ever shrinking. Who knows, maybe you, yes you, dear reader will find this paragraph one rainy September night and be forever changed by the experience. The very words you are reading right now my give you the confidence you needed to finally tell your boss to go perform a dangerous and biologically improbable sexual act upon him self.
Though the preceding scenario must be considered highly unlikely, one can not rule such out such a reaction.
The truth is I'm a horribly shy guy. I overthink everything, I have problems maintaining eye contact, in fear of them betraying the real organism hiding behind a well crafted exterior of a confidant, no nonsense, brutish human male.
I'm searching for the same thing we are all after in this world. This world is too cruel to go it alone and I seem to have been left behind. No one told me when to run, so I must have missed the starting gun. I can't be the only one... can I?
What I’m doing with my life
I work in a fairly specialized aviation job. I kind of like my job, but it's shift work that can seriously put a dent in your social life.
I’m really good at
Useless trivia and making spelling mistakes.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm the guy that makes snappy comments about the situation, I can get people to laugh, mostly at me i.e. I'm the content of my amusing comments. I try to get around unnoticed most of the time. I'm told I can seem a little scary at first, like I'm angry at something or someone. I have been told that I'm to polite for my own good.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Anything by Stephen Fry. subject matter rather then writers. Love the Thrawn trilogy and other SW extended universe books (don't worry, it's the only nerdy thing I do). Christoper Hitchens is my idol, not only for his religion bashing, that I'm all for, but also his journalistic work.
Classic films mostly, Hitchcock, Kubrick and Lang. I like some of the new stuff too, but Hollywood seems to be more interested in showing off their new graphics computer then telling you a proper story.
Big Bang Theory, Community, Workaholics, 30 Rock, I like TV comedy. Political stuff like The West Wing and Newsroom.
Classic rock, blues, jazz. I like some classical stuff to, makes me curse at my useless hands that can't play the music I have in my head.
If music is on MTV or mainstream commercial radio, there is a good chance I'm not going to like it.
Italian, Indian. Anything but seafood really. (I know, an Icelander that doesn't like seafood)
The six things I could never do without
I spend a lot of time thinking about
why? why this, why that. Why does it cost so much? How can I make money? Why has no-one told me? What are you doing? What's happening to you and how can we make it stop? How can I get out of this mess? Do we have to get the insurance co. involved? what the hell is your problem? How can you believe in the talking snake? How can you be so blind to the tones of evidence that disproves your wacky ideas?
On a typical Friday night I am
there is no typical Friday night anymore, in the old days it was strait to the bars. If there is a party going on I'm there. But if not, I'm more then comfortable watching a movie and just chilling out.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Underneath the cool, confident persona I manage to fool people with all day, is a lost, hopeless kid, with dreams of one day growing up.
You should message me if
... you want to. I like to think that I'm a pleasant guy. I'm not the best at corresponding, so it might take a while to get a response.
