My self-summary
First off, thanks for stopping by.

I started on this site for the quizzes. Now, they've taken that away, so I figure I should put a bit more effort into this self-summary.

I'm a big softie, most of the time. I only like mushrooms when they're cooked. I'm a Masshole when I'm driving. Motorcycles are my passion. My favorite book is Mercer Meyer's "East of the Sun, West of the Moon." The 1984 version of A Christmas Carol with George C. Scott is the best one. Never give me an ultimatum, I will choose the other option every time (unless it has to do with dessert). There are only 4 lights.

Cheers!

P.S. If you voted for Trump, you're everything wrong with this country and I highly doubt we'd get along.
What I’m doing with my life
Dealing with computers and patrons, usually.

Also, rebuilding a project motorcycle has now made me want to try other vehicles. For example, take an old, mid-80's, G-body and drop a 454 V-8 into it.
I’m really good at
Poker (funny story, that), debates, making people laugh, having an off-kilter sense of humor, daydreaming. You know, the usual.
The first things people usually notice about me
Probably the beard. It ranges from neatly trimmed Van Dyke to "mountain man" depending on the season.

Also, I tend to be either really quiet, or talking to every stranger in the room.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My favorites, huh? Well, I can't really refine some of them, but here it goes:
a) As far as books go, I'll read just about anything interesting. Just no Jane Austen or the Bronte Sisters (an exception is granted for Wuthering Heights).
b) Movies are a grab bag.
c) One really, really cool band is Nightwish. They stand at the top of the list.
d) Atkins makes things strange in the food category. Most of the time I wind up eating a lot of salads.

I should add here that Hunter S. Thompson is one of my literary heroes. Pretty sure he's my spirit animal.

I should probably also add that I may reference H.P. Lovecraft's work quite a bit.
Six things I could never do without
First off, I don't feel this can truly be quantified, because I'm pretty sure I can come up with a list easily longer than six of things that are biologically required for life to continue. However, should I be forced to name those things that I would miss greatly (family and friends are a given) should they no longer be available to me:

1. My 1983 KZ1100 Spectre
2. Music
3. Apple Pie Moonshine
4. Puns
5. Books
6. A sense of wonder
I spend a lot of time thinking about
"We shall not bring back a single bit of gold or silver, not a gem, nor any coal or iron... If you cannot understand that there is something in man which responds to the challenge of this mountain and goes out to meet it, that the struggle is the struggle of life itself upward and forever upward, then you won't see why we go. What we get from this adventure is just sheer joy. And joy is, after all, the end of life. We do not live to eat and make money. We eat and make money to be able to live. That is what life means and what life is for." - George Mallory
On a typical Friday night I am
Who am I kidding? I have no night life. Could be worse, though.

Occasionally, going to bed really early so I can get up incredibly early to get somewhere cool to watch the sun rise.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Deep down, my favorite captain of the Enterprise is Edward Jellico.

I dream of one day summitting Chomolungma (Everest. Chomolungma sounds nicer and translates to Mother Goddess of the Earth. Better than some stuffy Welshman's last name).

Fight Song by Rachel Platten is my jam.

And, for the truly curious, ask me about my Harley Rant.
You should message me if
Anything you've read interests you, or you have a burning question that just needs to be answered.

You know what the suffix of my profile name means.

If you find that this song (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cwqhdRs4jyA) is damn near perfect music.

Also, if you're a lover of riddles. Can't get enough of them. So I will present a simple one here:

There once was an evil wizard. He took 3 woman from their homes and turned them into rose bushes that looked exactly alike. He put them in his garden. One of the women had a husband and a young child and she begged the wizard to let her see them. He agreed, telling her that she could only visit them at night and, in the morning she would turn back into a rose bush. At night, he brought the woman to her house. In the morning she returned to the wizard's garden. The husband, desperate, sought out a wise woman for help. She told him that if he could pick a rose from the bush that was his wife, the spell would be broken. Surely, this would be quite a feat, as all three rose bushes were identical. After thinking on it he realized the answer and went back to the wizard. He pleaded that for his wife to return just for one night, as their child needed a mother. The wizard agreed, for one more night, the wife would be allowed to return, but, as before, in the morning she would return to the garden as a rose bush. The next morning, the husband entered the garden and immediately knew which rose bush was his wife. He picked a rose and took his wife home. How did he know which rose bush was his wife?
