My self-summary
Unlike most people, I was born. Some time later I signed up for this site. I'm not sure how, and I'm not sure why, but it happened.

If I was asked to describe my personality, interests, and hobbies, I would likely create some kind of snarky response. Luckily that is not the case here.

I like thinking about things, and doing things. Not necessarily the same things, mind you, but things in general. Some things I would rather think about than do. Such as attempting to swim away from a horrifying denizen of the deep as it draws ever closer, ever closer; its loathsome visage hidden by the claustrophobic darkness of the ocean.

See, that would suck to do.

And other things I'd rather do than think about. Like eating cupcakes. Cupcakes are awesome.

I can enjoy basically anything (besides the aforementioned Lovecraftian predicament), and can get along with pretty much anyone. My sense of humour ranges from simple (pigeons are inherently amusing) to the obtusely obscure when it comes to puns. I am like a chamaeleon. Only less like a lizard and more like a person. And less like a chamaeleon and more like a guy who's pretty relaxed about stuff.

So really not like a chamaeleon at all. They do seem like pretty chill little dudes, though. Jus' sayin'.

I guess this has been a pretty meta/mimetic representation of the question. Probably a good time to end it before it gets any more obscure.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm basically a renaissance everyman.

Currently pottering about before heading back to university to do a Masters of Business starting next year. Good times. Apparently a BA isn't much good for getting employed or something. Scandalous.
I’m really good at
Most things, really. Analysis is what I do best, I suppose, it just depends on how I aim it. I can cook some pretty tasty stuff (I have conquered bacon, eggs, pork roast and steak, as well as non-meat stuff).

I am the king of up-selling my friends or otherwise justifying their outlandish purchases. It is uncanny.

I'm also good at flicking cards.
The first things people usually notice about me
Probably the puns, really. Or the loudness. Or the lack of shame.

Mostly the awesomeosity. Awesomositude? I am unsure of the correct adjective.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books - Just got done reading all of The Walking Dead, which was interested. The book I recommend people is Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, which I adore. I'm mostly a non-fiction or modern fiction sort of person.

Authors - Chuck Palahniuk, Michael Lewis, Max Barry, Max Brooks, Neil Gaiman, Terry Pratchett, Stephen King (short stories and Dark Tower stuff mostly), TS Eliot.

Movies - My favourite movie is Walk Hard, and I have no idea why. That's not to say it's the BEST movie I've seen (that's probably Fargo), but I'll be damned if I don't enjoy every moment of it. I love movies, even bad ones. From Coen Brothers masterpieces to Ryan Reynolds romantic comedies (seriously how good is Definitely, Maybe).

TV - Community, How I Met Your Mother, Futurama, House, Castle, American Dad, Black Books, Arrested Development, Top Gear, Friday Night Lights.

Music - Eclectic is a very good way to describe my taste here. I like long DJ sets, but also weird acoustic bands. The Mountain Goats, Why?, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, and Scroobius Pip are all getting high rotation pretty regularly. I am also looking forward to the new Kanye album, it's sounding awesome so far.

Food - I'm always partial to a good burger. My cravings are generally built around texture as opposed to taste, though. Very fond of crunchy, but also like chewy quite a lot. Not toffee chewy, or chewing gum chewie, though. Good wine gum chewy.
The six things I could never do without

New things to find out about.


In jokes, and the creation of more in jokes.

The Oxford English Dictionary. I am serious here. I've been without it for months and I'm starting to get withdrawal.

Terrible drivers. As much as they frustrate me, at least they keep me interested.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Minutiae. How things work, and how to make them work better. Why roundabouts are awesome. What I would do if I ran the madhouse. Pie.
On a typical Friday night I am
Generally hanging out with friends. This sometimes means catching up at someone's house, sometimes a movie, sometimes heading out. It really is a thrill ride that never ends.

A non-typical friday night would involve unicorns.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
In my younger days I always hated those people who would brush your hair while you slept and whisper to you in chinese.

And now I'm one of them.

Life's funny, Beartato.
You should message me if
You think I'm interesting, or think that I'd think you were interesting. Random comments are also quite fun.

Or if you like long rambling messages.

Or if you acknowledge that blue is a flavour.

Or if you can explain to me why the winks or woos or whatever here are sponsored by a rum.
