My self-summary
Just about to start a new job in a couple of weeks. I'm looking for people to hang out with while I have a mostly clear schedule. Lately, I've been editing a book I wrote awhile back and catching up on shows I didn't have time for.
I’m really good at
I'd say I'm a good listener. If you think of yourself as a talker, I'm sure we'll get along great! I'm also rather creative, especially when it comes to problem solving. I don't know if I'm quite on MacGyver's level, but I'm pretty high up there.

I'm a pretty good poker player. Texas Hold 'Em's probably my favorite, but I like a lot of other styles too. 5 Card Draw is super lame though. No fun whatsoever. Nada. (Okay, I'm just bad at it.)
The first things people usually notice about me
I tend to blend in initially, so it's difficult for me to say. Rather than a visual, I'm guessing most people first notice a joke I made.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
For books, I typically read a lot of nonfiction and fantasy. The last few books I've read were about Russian Tsars, Native American women, and a fantasy novel about a fictionalized China during the Tang dynasty.

For movies, my tastes are all over. Some of my favorite directors are Mel Brooks, Scorcese, Coppola, Nolan, the Coen brothers, Kubrick, and John Carpenter. I've been making a point to go through and watch classic movies whenever I can. I just saw the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly for the first time which was great and also explained a lot about Tarantino. Oh, Tarantino should probably be on that list too. My Netflix is a mix of classic movies, B-movies, documentaries, and cartoons.

I used to be an extremely picky eater, but I've gotten way better within the past few years. I still won't touch meat loaf though. The food, not the singer... Or maybe both. Actually I like Meat Loaf. The singer, not the-- oh forget it!

For music, I like rock, punk (well, some punk), folk, and most other genres. I'm not a fan of country, but a lot of Johnny Cash is really good. I'm not huge on hip hop, but I do really like a lot of older silly stuff like the Sugarhill Gang and Beastie Boys. Some favorites include, Gogol Bordello, Tom Waits, the Rolling Stones, Velvet Underground, Cake, Foo Fighters, the Who, Queen, Pink Floyd, Gorillaz, and the Decemberists. I've been getting into some Frank Zappa lately too.
The six things I could never do without
