My (no longer) most recent fortune cookie said: "You will stumble into the path that will lead your life to happiness." That sounds like something I would do. Thanks, fortune cookie!
I prefer snow to sunshine. One-thirty am is my favorite time of day, and I'm a huge grumplestiltskin if I wake up before nine; people who willingly rise with the sun mystify and alarm me. The day's going to be waiting for you no matter when you get out of bed, people.
I'm trying to cut down the wall of text in this profile. It's slow going though because, and I gotta be honest here, I maybe kinda-sorta have a hard time shutting up sometimes.
I really like italics.
So there's that, and building a steamboat. Three guesses which goal I think is more likely to be met first, although I don't know why three guesses would be necessary. Actually, increasing my running mileage has been kind of problematic, so maybe I WILL build a freakin' steamboat in my basement first! It'll certainly be a conversation starter. If you're in my basement. For some reason.
Addendum: If I have to win a half-marathon in order to be cool, well, I guess for now I shall remain an also-ran! (Waldorf and Statler-laughter goes here)
The boss-dude of our new industrial/goth/whatever club night says I'm a good dj, which, hey, I'll take the praise!
Edit because I love self-promotion: First Friday of the month, Fuze Box, 9pm is our club night. Be there, unless you're a dick.
ANYWAY. I'm learning to sew, and I'm good at knitting hats or mitts. I kind of hate doing scarves, they take SO LOOOONG and are SO BOOOORING.
And this is just something I noticed again recently, but I have weird diction. Greg Proops, I'm pretty sure, is to blame for this.
Oh, you know what? I DO have a favorite book, after all. Count Zero. I don't know why, but it's definitely the Count.
Movies? Grosse Pointe Blank OR Ronin. Actually, I think it's Grosse Pointe Blank, but Ronin gets to stay mentioned because the car chases were so awesome. Also, I like that movie Hocus Pocus a lot, for some reason.
It's not a movie per se, but "Riding With Death" is my favorite MST3K episode.
In the continued interest of wall-of-text demolition, I will put up my Last.fm here instead of a list of music: http://www.last.fm/user/SRCTheory HOWEVER, you know how everyone is either a Beatles fan or a Rolling Stones fan, but not both? It's absolutely the Stones for me.
I think about memory, and why mine sure is something awful.
The urge to delete everything and start writing this profile as if it were a detective-novel narrative is almost overwhelming.
To up the stakes for a moment here: if I were to die on another world, or in an O'Neill cylinder, that'd go a long way towards me considering my life a success.
A list of suggestions I just thought up a few minutes ago, you should message me if you:
-think that you can run a 5k with me in the unspecified future
-think that you can tell a joke which will cause me to either laugh or make a face
-can reliably point out... let's say Finland, on a map
That seems like a good starting point.
Geography is important, is all I'm saying.
