My self-summary
I seek, and always find, the good in people, events, activities and places. In that way I'm a reliably positive person.
What I’m doing with my life
Working with the state on a long term project intended, effectively, to describe all that is and aught to be done to make New York a less messy and polluted place to live. I review, manage, fix, and direct the fixing of data.

I'm also seeking out strange new life and new civilizations (joining meetup groups) exploring new horizons (Kayaking when the weather's right, skiing when the weather's REALLY right) and communicating in the manner most familiar to me (through card, board, and party games).

When I am home, I typically spend my time as a butler for my two quick and curious rabbit hosts, Penny and Ruby. And the three of us pay much attention to, at turns, the news and games and the Roomba.
I’m really good at
Asking uncomfortable questions and not knowing that I am asking uncomfortable questions.


I'm also a good note-taker, but that's more relevant for role-playing sessions than anything else.
The first things people usually notice about me
My eyes (or my heavy glasses)
My fashion sense (I have none. I will wear hoodies in the summer, tee-shirts in the winter, and work shirts and pants while everyone else I know dresses casual.)
My (cough) dimples. I have been given to understand that my smile is winning for some.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Well, my formative novel series was Orson Scott Card's Ender's Game and the Speaker for the Dead sequels - pretty sure that twisted me up into the morally conscious sci-fi nerd I am today. Thank heaven I didn't start with his political editorials/rants.

And then Kim Stanley Robinson and Ray Kurzweil made me work out what I hope for in my future and in ours as a species.

For movies, I like Action, Suspense, and Romance movies in equal measure. I am building my tolerance for Horror movies. Expanding one's horizons is apparently important.

For music? Lately I'm listening a lot to Glen Hansard, Toad the Wet Sprocket, Dawes, Bon Iver, Fleet Foxes...

For food, I will try anything, enjoy most things, and remember - just about nothing. I always fall back upon the comfort food ingrained in me in ancient (re: pre 90s) memory. Friendly's is home sweet home. That said, in the home, I have become a vegetarian - it's easier, sometimes more healthy, and a heck of a lot less messy.
Six things I could never do without
A working kitchen,

trapping materials/farming tools, 'cause I want to survive on that deserted island, don't I?

portable solar power generator,

a computer with a satellite connection, hence internet.

clothes - well, I'm sure there's circumstances in which I could do without clothes, but more than a week naked? depends how my company would feel about it, which leads me to my last.

A happy, patient and peaceful friend. This because I need to remember how to listen, and how to talk. Also someone to kick me into gear when the rum is gone (the rum is always gone) and they want to see their family again.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My hermit habit. My heart is perfectly safe and there is no one on this planet who's heart is hurting because I'm not there.

My hermit habit. There's someone out there for everyone, and when I am not looking for them, they are lonely, or they are saddled with someone who is not me.

On any given day, it's a flip of the coin.
On a typical Friday night I am
There is no such thing as a typical Friday night - or typical night, really - but lately I'm busy enough with different adventures on many of the 7 days/nights in a week that I'm satisfied sticking around at home.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I care, intensely, from the start. I am not the type of person who 'grows fond' over time. I'm fond at the start, and my feelings for family, friends, and lovers, they don't fade easy.
You should message me if
This is a list of 'or's. If you meet any of these arbitrary standards, please go right ahead.

You're in the habit of making friends.

You suspect that we share interests, or that we aught to.

You want to be messaged back.

You've ever been passionate enough about something to go to a convention about it, and you'd like to get to know/initiate a fellow fan.

You have some friendly advice bubbling in your head, but you're not sure I'll listen. I'm not either, but I promise there's no harm in trying.
The two of us
