My self-summary
Are you not very good at these things and don't know what to write here? Well I do, and I love it! (This has been written with the help of many friends for maximum hilarity. Please enjoy, it's for your benefit after all.)

I'm a game programmer with a masters in astrophysics and cynical/sarcastic sense of humor. I can also be brutally honest and annoyingly logical, which can make me a bit abrasive sometimes. (As you can see, I also suck at marketing.)

I have a beard because I look like a 15 year old if I don't and I wear plain colored untucked dress shirts because that's sexy. I very much enjoy meeting new people (or sometimes an awesome pet) and am genuinely interested by your stupid anecdotes (those you'll tell your grandchildren to annoy their parents), as I can then steal them and reuse them as mine with other people (that's almost a lie).

Though my english is quite good (the accent, I have it), I am a native montreal french speaker (born and raised Plateau and I know the city like the back of my hand... though now that I think of it, I don't really know the back of my hand that much.)

Oh, and I'm not a serial killer. But then again, that's exactly what a serial killer would say, so... your call.
What I’m doing with my life
In my spare time I'm trying to find out what "zigazig ah" means, so I can give it to the spice girls.
I’m really good at
Being spontaneous. Holding a conversation. Finding thr fun to be had in pretty much any activity.

I can also hold my breath for 37 seconds and I cook minute rice under 56 seconds.
The first things people usually notice about me
My eyes. I have been told they are like infinite pools of wonders wrapped in an enigma. (this is, of course, a lie)

I'm pretty much "what you see is what you get", unfortunately, which means that I often lack a certain social tact that you have learned to expect from decent human beings.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books : Fantasy almost exclusively (Pratchett (may he rest in peace), Abercrombie, Rothfuss, Gaiman, Hobb, Lynch, Erickson (if I can finish them one day...), Cook, Lawrence, etc. And Tolkien/Martin of course.)

Movies : Pretty much anything that's entertaining, with little stress and sadness (screw suspense and drama, god, I've got my life for that!). So basically action, comedy, animation, mystery, sci-fi&fantasy. As well as the whole superhero bandwagon (what can I say, I'm a sucker for vain men with superpowers).

Shows : Mostly sci-fi/fantasy/mystery (Stargate, supernatural, grimm, revolution, lost, sleepy hollow, arrow, misfits, just to mention a few) as well as the known comedies (Big bang theory, How I met your mother, New girl, Parks and Rec). Again, anything that's entertaining.

Food : Ribs and anything with melted cheese (which should be its own food group in my humble opinion!), but pretty open to anything as long as it doesn't go against the first rule : "Peanuts do not belong in a supper dish."

Music : Whatever. Try Tom Lehrer.
The six things I could never do without
Stories
Voyages (that end up as awesome stories)
New people to meet
Weird spontaneous thoughts
Cool historical moments

The fun awesome part of learning a new game and imagining all the possibilities until you realize that that specific plan you had in mind all along won't work and your hopes and dreams come crashing down around you.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Completely random things (when you're at the movies, which armrest is rightfully yours?)

Every time I cook pasta, I ask myself how much is enough... Every. Single. Time.

How to stay in the shower longer without disappointing humanity.

How long can you wear jeans without washing them before you should reconsider your life choices?
On a typical Friday night I am
planning world domination with stray cats.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I've always wanted to take swing lessons. Suspenders and milkshakes.
You should message me if
you got down to the very bottom of my profile.
(Might as well say hi! I won't bite, not that I normally bite, unless you like biting. In which case I bite all the time, everywhere.)

Ps : You get bonus points if you show initiative and make the first move, passive is so boring.
