My self-summary
Note: I am now married, so just looking to meet new friends. Moved recently to Cologne and my wife and I know almost no one!
So feel free to send me a note.

Almost everything on this page was written while I was single.
Interested in Christianity? Check out my new blog.

Update: My book on Unorthodox, Biblical Christianity is now published and available on Amazon. Check it out at www.WhoReallyGoesToHell.com .And, rather separate from that, I got my chess book published.

Since I know that the tic-tac-toe craze won't last forever, I am currently writing a book "How to build a car using only toast, duct tape, and copies of Queen's Greatest Hits." I should have a draft of that out by the end of the year.

I like to do challenging things, like slam-dancing to Kenny Roger's songs, figuring out Dylan's lyrics, or tying knots in cherry stems using only my MIND.

I used to be one of the 5 people in charge of stamping all the "S"s on skittles, but one day I got drunk on Venusian Wallbanger Schnapps and printed all the "S"s upside down. I figured it would go unnoticed. I figured wrong. That's okay, the people over at "M&Ms" have a better 401k plan anyway.

I think The Big Lebowski is pretty much the funniest movie of all time. Also, I love dorks/nerds/whatever you want to call them.

You can't really write about yourself...you can only write about the self you think you are or hope to be. I think I am extemely honest, compassionate, and a damn good back rubber, but your mileage may vary.

I am INTJ, excessively heavy on the N. I make goofy anagrams in real time. I can drink my weight in chai. I am a mathematician, science editor, teacher and amateur theologian who writes fiction. Jesus Christ rocks my socks.

If you can beat me in pool, I'll buy you dinner. If you can beat me in scrabble, I'll make you dinner.

My self summary would not be complete without saying that, the above levity notwithstanding, I am quite serious about God. I am an amateur theologian who thinks the modern-day mainstream Christian church has in general misunderstood and miscontrued the point of Christ's coming. I am hoping to cause Christians to develop a deeper understanding of Christ's work.

I am hoping to find an intelligent, self-confident, honest, spiritual woman who has grown out of the "The world revolves around me" phase that most people stay in all their lives.

------------------------ For anyone who cares, I have made a Bible Knowledge and Understanding Test. Click the "Test" button to see it. I'm Ntrospctivjestr for Quickmatch folks.

After 2 years, I decided to redo my OKC profile...so if this looks oddly familiar, that is why.

I am Tall, 7 shades of teal, and Unorthodox Christian
What I’m doing with my life
Mixing it with 3 parts Oregon Chai and one part uncooked laughter.

I play volleyball Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. If you know a league that plays on other days (preferably one that does not require my wearing a skirt), let me know.

I am working on a few independent writing projects. My prime motivation is to help people, mostly through teaching, so that factors into most of my writing interests. I write fiction, theology, and chess.

I have posted the first few chapters of my fiction at my myspace page: http://www.myspace.com/fwqhgads and I am in the midst of editing a chess book for publication.

I am also a science/math editor/writer/developer for www.explorelearning.com and have recently begun answering questions in the physics thread of answers.yahoo.com. I'd rather answer questions in religion/spirituality, but the audience there is more interested in picking fights than having questions answered.
I’m really good at
Settlers of Catan


Taking the blame when I screw something up, making people laugh, solving puzzles, knitting pot-holders from laundry lint, beating invisible trees into submission, playing volleyball, impromptu doggerrel , slam pong, receiving the lauds and praises of my many trained chimpmunk worshippers, finding grammar errors, wrestling, boiling water, being humorous and real at the same time, inapproriate humor, living without a facade or safety net, playful sarcasm, being honest even when it hurts, tying knots in cherry stems with my tongue, mentally approximating square roots of numbers, puns, appropriate anagrams, inappropriate anagrams.

Oh, and I may very well be the World's foremost authority on the Colle-Zukertort...of course since practically no one reading this is likely to know what the Colle-Zukertort is, that is of limited importance.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I am tall and I hate chit-chat. In those social situations normally requiring small talk, I normally instead turn into funny guy mode instead.

Oh, and I have a congenital condition that causes my eyes to go back and forth rapidly...some people don't notice it much, other's do. My head also sometimes tremors, but that has gotten rarer and rarer as I've grown.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
a) The Bible, A Song of Fire and Ice, The Fionvar Tapestry, Shogun, Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy. Cell, Gels, and the Engine of Life (A great book for all biology people) b) The Big Lebowski, Fight Club, Memento, 12 Monkeys, Zoolander, Boondock Saints, Breakfast Club, Galaxy Quest, Groundhog Day, Hudsucker Proxy, Being John Malkovich, American Beauty, Requiem for a Dream, Spirited Away,Lost Highway, Videodrome, Naked Lunch, L.A. Confidential, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, pretty much smart comedy or smart drama... c) Leonard Cohen, Alanis, Rich Mullins, Roger Waters d) Mexican, Italian, Stromboli

The only TV shows I find worth watching are Family Guy, Dead Like Me and Law and Order...but then again the only reason I own a TV is that an erstwhile flat-mate left his behind.

I am also a fan of Strong Bad emails and Ze Frank.
Six things I could never do without
Christ's Teachings (Though I am not a fan of what humanity and the church in particular has done in the 2000 years hence), Volleyball, Pesto, My computer, Music...and a player to be named later.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I wonder what God's will is for me...and for we.

Luke 16:9. I find that verse baffling.

What is the state of our souls after death and before the final judgment? The Bible gives very little indication. [Note: The Parable of Lazarus is not really about heaven and hell...so it's not really as much help as you might expect.]

I wonder where my socks escape to...I think they evaporate randomly.

How can there be 2.1 billion people who claim to be Christians in this world and still 800 million people without enough to eat?

How can someone claim to be "Atheist and very serious about it" and, at the same time, claim to be "open-minded"?

How can someone be "Agnostic, and laughing about it." Or...any religion/theology and "laughing about it." To me that's like saying "In need of a liver transplant, and laughing about it."
On a typical Friday night I am
Shooting magons or pool on the downtown mall.

(A magon is a half-monkey, half-dragon....you think a regular dragon is tough? Try fighting one with a prehensile tail.)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
My mother was a Native American Marxist Kangeroo and my father was a Swiss Sea Turtle with known lycanthropic tendencies.
You should message me if
You like a mixture of sincerity and humor, sarcasm and honesty.

You live near me and think it would be fun to get to know each other.

Do not message me if you are generally dishonest...it is the one quality I truly despise.
The two of us
