I've never been struck by lightning, despite years of very expressive profanity, so that's at least anecdotal evidence for either the nonexistence of the almighty or my own latent power to absorb levinbolts that the divine dares not wake.
I can do a cartwheel! And a backwards somersault! Even in my thirties!
I'm reasonably tall, essentially in shape, relatively successful, and have all but one of my own original teeth (the one is a very nice sculpture of porcelain and gold that they stuck on my tooth nubbin).
I don't take myself, or other people, particularly seriously. I'm probably not as funny as I think I am, but that just makes getting the laugh all the sweeter.
I'm into some pretty deep nerd shit for my hobbies, and it would be cool if you were too, but I also like more mainstream pastimes like hiking, live music, and trying to remember to use more specific and illustrative nouns than "things" when I'm filling out dating profiles.
I like to think that, of all my many an assorted hobby-level interests, I'm a particularly good entertainer and writer. It's important to me to keep the people around me amused, informed, and happy, to the best of my ability.
Also, I'm good at spreadsheets. They come from miles around to see my spreadsheets.
Books: I read your typical assortment of geek fiction, but also read a lot of non-fiction, particularly pop science stuff and how-to guides. Somehow I made it through a whole English major without ever getting a particular love of the classics instilled, much to my professors' chagrin.
Music: I have some level of interest in most music (except Country, which is suddenly a problem again now that I'm back in the South), but particularly like electronica, industrial, and alternative metal. I really enjoy going to live music shows, and I've relatively recently seen Garbage, Lacuna Coil, MS MR, the Birthday Massacre, Röyksopp, and Ellie Goulding.
Movies and TV: I try to stay on top of all the things you have to in order to maintain nerd street cred, but that's getting harder and harder ever since we took over pop culture. As with books, when I have time for nonfiction, I tend to like pop science and educational stuff.
Food: I'm not a very experimental eater, and tend to stick to classic Americana, but I tend to have at least one thing I like from most other cuisines. I enjoy cooking and baking, and have a somewhat limited but highly perfected repertoire. I have somewhere between a weak allergy and a strong dislike for most foods with heavy tannins, which tends to baffle people that I don't like chocolate, coffee, or tea.
