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

Now, let's see here.

Self-summary...

It's ok. I got this...

Hmmm...

IT Librarian, BFG, Motorcyclist. That works. :)

Cheers!
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.
The 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
That I constantly feel like I'm not really worthy of anyone's time. That anyone I'd be interested in would probably not be interested in me. (Look, this section just asked about private things I'm willing to admit, it never said it had to be positive. Also, I'm quite all right, thank you very much, I just have to work harder than most.)

I dream of one day summiting 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 woman had a husband and children and begged the wizard to let her see them. He agreed. At night, he brought the woman to her house. In the morning he came and took her home. One day the husband decided to go rescue her. So he snuck into the wizard's garden. He looked and looked at the 3 identical rose bushes trying to figure out which could be his wife. Suddenly, he knew the answer and he took his wife home. How did he know which rose bush was his wife?
