So, OK, about me. I tend to have a pretty deadpan sense of humor. And pretty obscure. A lot of times people don't realize when I make a joke that I think is hilarious. Or maybe they do know, and just think it's a terrible joke, who knows?
I work nights, and some weekends, so I don't always have an opportunity to spend an evening with my potential match. On the other hand, I work a compressed work week, so my weekends are three or four days long. And I've worked at the same company for 14 years now, so it is pretty stable.
Yes, I am pretty geeky. I'm a lifelong fan of comic books, long before they became trendy at the local cinema. I read and watch a lot of sci-fi and fantasy, as well. However, I present a pretty normal face to the world. You won't mistake me for the Comic Book Guy from the Simpsons.
I tend to be laid back, even tempered, quiet. Maybe a little shy. Or boisterous and outgoing. Depends on my mood, and who I'm with. Most of my friends are people I have known for 30 years, and sometimes longer. They really are my family.
Movies? Well, of course Marvel's Avengers, and the other superhero movies connected to them. I'm a huge fan of Army of Darkness, too. Some other favorites: That Thing You Do, The Right Stuff, The Frighteners, Princess Bride, and too many more to count.
For TV, well, I mentioned Game of Thrones. Walking Dead is coming up, which I'm excited for. Big Bang Theory, Craig Ferguson, Castle, Firefly, Star Trek (original series, primarily). And I love a good cartoon, from classic Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck to Justice League and The Brave and the Bold.
Musically, I admit it. I am a product of my upbringing. Late 70s and early 80s New Wave and post-punk. 70s power pop, and some classic rock, too. I also enjoy old, old country, and some modern alt.country stuff, like Rhett Miller and the Old 97s.
Food? Yes, please! I love Indian food, Chinese, Thai, Mexican, sea food, and a nice medium-rare steak. Not all at the same time, of course...
The Late Show with Craig Ferguson.
My close friends.
A sense of humor... yours or mine. Preferably both.
My vintage blazers (I may have a fetish for shark skin).
Or if you're a chemist/engineer who wants to get rich on Shark Tank with me!
