My self-summary
Why don't more people start their profiles with rhetorical questions?

I'm incredibly sarcastic and teasing. I know it's hip now to say you're sarcastic, but I'm so dry that when I talk the humidity drops by 10 points.

People ask why put pictures of your pets. Because I love my doggie, that's why.

Every day I look more and more like Steve Jobs. So if you think Steve Jobs was hideous, well, maybe we won't work out.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a novelist. Yes, professional. I quit computer programming to do my dream job. So far so good.

I live at the beach. I enjoy the lifestyle. The last 15ish years of my life it has been 75 degrees with a breeze. It's easy to get used to that.
I’m really good at
Anything trivia related. Most stuff requiring left-brained analysis but just short of calculus or quantum mechanics. Being silly and making people laugh.
The first things people usually notice about me
Tall, funny, and smart. I'm like a less gay Oscar Wilde--who isn't dead.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
BBC and NPR.

I love movies and literature and just about all kinds of fiction and non-fiction. Some of my favorite movies are Amadeus, City of Lost Children, Road Warrior, Wizard of Oz, The Fall. Also love Mr. and Mrs. Smith, The Lady Eve and The Thin Man. I Netflix often--and I don't mean that in the new sort of way. I've seen so much WWII it's crazy.

Books: I read a lot of books. I've been going through the classic noirs. Elmore Leonard, Hammett, Chandler are favs. I read good sci-fi and biographies/history. I love my kindle. Latest book is Lonesome Dove, which is great.

TV: Family Guy/American Dad! I've cut back on tv. I mostly watch news.

Music ranges from hip hop to techno to industrial to disco to classic rock.

Food. Well, I can't cook, so I tend to eat out a lot. If you come to Hermosa/Manhattan Beach I know pretty much every restaurant. Update, I've gotten slightly better at cooking. I find it's mostly common sense.
Six things I could never do without
-I need intellectual stimulation. If I'm not always learning, I'd die. Okay, maybe not die. But I'd feel really stupid.
-I need some games of some sort. They are how I relax.
-My dog.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Piecing together the wacky world of human interactions. Writing. Daydreaming.

Why every woman on here has as a requirement that men must know the difference between your, you're and yore. Really? That's like a top ten? Or even top hundred? I'm a professional writer and can diagram sentences until the participles come home, but isn't there a whole lot of things more important in life?
On a typical Friday night I am
I'll go to clubs or bars or movies or snake charming. The usual.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm not incredibly private. I'm generally not ashamed of what I do and like. Maybe that's the private thing I'm admitting. Irony.
You should message me if
I've found I get along best with are cute, athletic, young at heart. Funny, smart and sarcastic are musts.

I've also noticed, much to my sadness, that a lot of people don't read. Or the last books they have listed are works from middle school they were required by law to read. I'm a novelist. The ability to sit down for lengthy periods of time and be comfortable in your own space in your own head is very valuable to me. I suppose it's not a deal-breaker, but if you think books are stinky or stupid or can't understand their appeal whatsoever, then that's probably an issue.
