My self-summary
Most people would probably describe me as a laid back, friendly guy who seems equally content either chatting with anyone nearby, or just quietly hanging out.

(Though most of those quiet times I'm actually waiting for the opportune moment to deliver a quick joke that makes people spray their beverage out their nose. Not to be cruel you understand, it's more of an experiment to determine how the amount of liquid sprayed from a nose varies depending on the type of drink consumed. It's purely scientific. Really! I'm going to write a book. Or at least a web article.)

More generally, I try to take a balanced approach to life. I plan and prepare for the future, but living life fully is too important to pass up opportunities because they weren't "part of the plan". Adapt to what is, and get on with it.

Family is very important to me. My son occupies a large part of my life; along with the rest of my family. Thankfully, they all live close by and "time with the family" generally means a Saturday of wave runners and barbecue at the cottage or the occasional family dinner.
What I’m doing with my life
My current priorities are my son, working (yes, I am gainfully employed) and having fun. I've also begun the coursework necessary to upgrade my state certification to the Master level. (if you're really curious let me know, but I won't bore everyone right now)
I’m really good at
Making sarcastic comments to unpleasant people without them being entirely sure I've just insulted them;

Finding a cheaper way to buy almost anything;

Persuading bleeding children that they don't need to cry because bleeding wounds are really cool.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm very quiet right up until I start talking;

I accidentally use enough SAT vocabulary to make people wonder if I'm doing it on purpose; (I'm not, I just read too much)

If I'm concentrating hard on something I tend to look angry.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
A Dance with Dragons, Wicked, Write it When I'm Gone, Half Baked, Lord of the Rings, Office Space, The Big Bang Theory, How I met your Mother, Boston Legal, pizza, a really good chili dog, most Italian food and my mom's Lebanese cooking
Six things I could never do without
my phone,
Diet Mountain Dew,
a vehicle of some kind,
Chaco sandals,
a belt (i feel undressed without one, and you can use it to repair cars in a pinch)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Ensuring the continued supply of the six things I could never do without;

Whether my next big trip will be Disney World or Brazil;

Whether I want to wake up at 6:50 or 7:10 am for work.
On a typical Friday night I am
Half of the time I'm playing cards with friends or occasionally at the pub; I also try to go to the Theatre or a concert every couple of months.

The other half of the time I am driving a pre-teen to whatever event he has scheduled this time.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have far more in common with Sheldon from Big Bang Theory than I'd like to admit.

I still have some d10's and d20's, I'm familiar with M:TG, Rifts, Champions and AD&D; and I remember when WOTC didn't rule the world. (yes, this is intentionally vague. I'm only willing to admit it to people who know what it means.)
You should message me if
You at least smiled while reading my profile;

You don't mind that I have a child who lives with me;

After you tell me you think I'm wrong you won't get upset when I return the favor; (politely of course)

And obviously, if you think it might be fun to meet;

P.S. If you're the type that doesn't want to send the first msg but you found my profile interesting, at least wink or something. Otherwise I may never know!
The two of us
