Facetious. Introvert. Snarky. Actually, I am incredibly polite. Your grandma would probably like me... though my introverted nature might make me appear rude/stuck-up sometimes. I suffer from a little bit of Peter-Pan-Syndrome but I'm rather responsible when it comes to most adult things. Museums, flea markets, antique malls, used book stores, libraries, parks, diners - are some places I am a fan of. Also Home Depot...I rarely purchase anything but I just like looking around in there. Plus, it smells awesome! Invent some sort of Home Depot air freshener and I'll buy the crap out of it.
I would like to get to know and date a really great person. However, I don't date just for the sake of companionship. I don't get caught up in the whole idea of people needing to couple up in order to be happy/complete/blah blah. I'd rather be single than settle for a subpar relationship. Basically, I just want someone that is smart, fun, and I find attractive to go on adventures with and to hit up museums, bookstores, buttes/mountains, oceans/lakes/rivers/puddles, and to spend lazy days with; playing scrabble, watching the best cartoons that came out when we were kids, and listening to silly music. Being able to enjoy doing nothing with someone is great! It can be serious without needing to be complicated.
INTJ last I checked.
ASL, German (took it in high school but remember about a dozen words) and then maybe Mandarin. Also - juggling, drumming (not now due to living in an apartment), oil-painting, drawing beyond a 5 year-old level, how to be a better writer, lock-picking, fencing, kayaking
I am still figuring it out. There are a few things I'm interested in but I haven't found anything that I'm so passionate about that I could just do it and forget about eating and sleeping. THAT IS WHAT I WANT. I'm interested in film-making, directing/editing. Maybe voice-acting - I'm good at coming up with different voices. I dabble in photography. I really enjoyed a welding class I took. I think I'd be a good radio personality too. Maybe a part-time gig at a library or bookstore would be fun.
I actually did start a webcomic. It isn't completely horrible. Got burnt out on it pretty quickly though.
Modern society is so...anxious, frazzled, nuts. Desperate for money, constantly worried about work they don't find rewarding or even enjoy, and trying to keep up to date with every little thing in the world that has nothing to do with them. No one should give a shit about what their cousin just had for dinner or that someone from high school they haven't spoken to in a decade went to a concert.
I'm not a bum or anything. I am employed "full-time". I make plenty of money and have a bundle from selling my home so as to not have to stress about finances. I am just not into society's expectations in regards to careers, student loans, decades of debt, working 60 hours a week to afford a super nice house I barely have time to enjoy, a sweet car I only drive to and from work, etc. I mean...who decided we're supposed to go to school for 20some years and then do basically the same job for like 50 years?? That seems like something a crazy person would come up with!
Being funny. If you'll allow me to be slightly full of myself for just a second...I'm hilarious. I can alter my humor to fit the situation. Sometimes I'll pull out some c-material for the folks at work and still get the room laughing. Usually just quick witted and full of references. Master of the call-back. I can get really dark and morbid too because I find that sort of thing hilarious.
Insomnia/sleeping for 10 hours straight.
Honestly...I'm confident I could do pretty much anything above average if I really tried.
I smile in real life too, I just can't fake it for pictures. Oh, and I guess I don't walk around with bedhead all day too often...at least in public.

Cliches and unoriginality bore me.
It sure is a crock that mouse holes in real life are nothing like mouse holes from cartoons. Also that eyes don't glow in the dark. Huge let down.
It's so crazy unfair that I'm allergic to cats because I really want one.
Dolphins. They sleep with one eye open just so they can FUCK YOU UP. Plus, I hear they're known for raping divers. So they're also sexually violent.

I stole this from someone else - giving people shit is my favorite form of intimacy.
-'While misanthropes express a general dislike for humanity on the whole, they generally have normal relationships with specific people.'
- 'effectively functioning in society has little or no value to the misanthrope, and the prospect of fitting into their culture seems to them like idiocy'
-'They will typically be very selective with whom they choose to associate'
You want to speak with British accents all day. OR! Want to roleplay that were ARE British while shopping or dining out. Other accents are fine too. Made up or mixed up bad accents are fun also, we'll just confuse the hell out of everyone.
You are Canadian.
You're a redhead. I don't believe in souls anyway.
If your profile says "ask me" on multiple sections -get out. I'm not a fucking journalist, man.
