My self-summary
Don't know what i'm doing here, maybe it has something to do with it being 11:30 on a Saturday and me siting here in front of a computer.
I've lived on both sides of the Atlantic, both in the US and in the Netherlands, but settled in the middle where I belong, yet somehow out of place.
What I’m doing with my life
I work in aviation. I 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 like the fly on the wall observing more then anything.
I think that the first impressions of me are fear, not the "this guy is going to punch me" kind of fear, but the same kind of fear many people have of Pit-Bulls. Strongly built dog that they don't know, but soft and friendly when they get to know me.
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.
