My self-summary
Too intellectual, too emotional.

I drive trucks for a living. This is much like being a rat. Having to get into and out of mazes to earn one's cheese.

I am by disposition a philosopher. This is much like being a pig, rooting around in the substrate one is standing on, seeking interesting, nourishing things that one suspects one has caught a whiff of.

I voted for Trump this time around, mostly because of how deeply, totally, and passionately I despise the Left, and their characteristic behaviors of the present day, which basically consist of unilaterally setting themselves up as an authoritarian state, which engages in relentless thought and language policing, and suppression of dissent.

I am perfectly aware that I lack the requisite male qualities of confidence and ambition, and that for this reason I do not exist in the eyes of women. So whatever. I would say that being single is sort of a lower energy state, in that you are never as a happy as you can be when you're with the right person, and never as miserable as you can be as you are when you're with the wrong person. I know that I am still capable of getting into a relationship with a wrong person, and am hellaciously wary because of it, but to entirely rule out the possibility of finding a new relationship is to switch off a certain avenue of life affirmation that I'm not inclined to view as completely extinct at this time.

I also have too many guitars, too many guns, and too many books.

In keeping with the theme of rooting around in the substrate, I also do quite a bit of metal detecting, and as a side efffect of it have become a bit of an amateur history detective. Stuff you find in the ground clues you in to a lot of things that have gone on that aren't reported in the history books. I have a great fascination with old graveyards and factory buildings, art museums and giant trees, things which are saturated with time.

One of my cats likes you, but the other is suspicious of your motives.
What I’m doing with my life
This "life" question is tricky. It turns out that while life is not intrinsically meaningful, it can, to a degree, be infused with meaning by persons determined to make it meaningful via actions of one sort or another. But it seems to me that the only people who are any good at making life meaningful are the ones who thought it was intrinsically meaningful and proceeded to live according to, and thereby create, the meaning that they thought intrinsically existed.

On a day to day level I
Get the bills paid, by driving trucks around, delivering valuable cargoes
Take care of two cats
Play the guitar. Very badly.
Spin clay on the wheel
Shoot many photographs
Spend too much time online.
I’m really good at
One thing that complicates making out a list like this is the possibilty that one might be capable of great self-delusion, or have a personal agenda that would be furthered by judicious self-aggrandizement, in either of which cases none of the claims one makes about what one is good at are to be believed.

Having presented potential emptors with these caveats, I claim that I may or may not be good at

Scrabble
Baking pies from scratch
Being so totally not a lefty or a righty I might as well be from another planet
Completely alienating women with the first sentence I speak to them
Celebrity voices including Beavis, Butthead, and John Lennon
The science and history questions on Jeopardy.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Ones written by JK Rowling, James Herriot, JRR Tolkien, Ann Rice, and/or CJ Cherryh. When I was younger I read CS Lewis, Lloyd Alexander, and Carlos Castaneda. I haven't read any thing by Ayn Rand, at least not more than a page, insofar as she had something of a prolixity issue going on, but so many people on here seem to view her as the devil, that I think that if I were to have a daughter, I would name her Ayn, just to piss off my leftward friends.

Movies: Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon; Forrest Gump, Ed Wood, Big Fish. Many flicks by Pedro Almodovar, Juzo Itami, and Woody Allen. Also Finding Nemo, Princess Mononoke, Nausicaa, and The Incredibles.

Still pictures: Alfred Stieglitz, Ansel Adams, Edward Weston, Imogen Cunningham, Jock Sturges.

Paint, canvas, paper, ink: Modigliani, Klee, O'Keefe, Dali, Schiele, Bierstadt, Beardsley, Mucha.

Das Fernseher: Farscape, Star Trek, The Muppet show.

I really miss the days of going out to rent videos.

Sounds: The Beatles, Dan Bern, Jack White, Buckethead, The Cure, Siouxsie, Depeche Mode, Various Seattle bands, and a lot of other stuff.

Cuisine: About all that I don't like is the hot sort of spicy. I am also not all that into the cuisine of my ancestry, which over-emphasizes cabbage.
Six things I could never do without
Crushing My Enemies
Seeing Them Driven Before Me
Hearing the Lamentations of Their Women
Dark Chocolate
Red Wine
Sex
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The fundamental aspects of motivation. What human-ness is, in thought and behavior.

The left's twin religions of Social Justice and Climate change. Whether there's anything I could personally do to speed their consignment to the compost heap of history. A lot of people are working on a red pill for the left. I shall have to add my two cents' worth at some point. Whether the religious aspect of social justice reflects a cultural inheritance from conventional religions or whether it and conventional religions just reflect the native traits of the human mind.

Mortality

That awkward moment when you admit to a girl that actually you're a mind projection being generated by a giant space amoeba, so she's going to have to drive.
On a typical Friday night I am
Beating Sicilians at games of death.
You should message me if
You're way too young and/or too pretty for me.
You have never once checked your privilege.
You think you are good at Scrabble. I will laugh at your hubris. In fact, I am already laughing now. Hee hee, ha ha.
You'd be up for catching a fish, or other things adults aren't supposed to have time for.
