I'm a normal, run of the mill home body that goes out all the time having adventures. It doesn't make sense to me, either.
Fiction gets my heart rate up. I love science fiction, fantasy, and various forms of make-believe. Deadpool and Ian Malcolm are my fictitious soul-mates, I'm one Lovecraft reference away from needing to join tentacles-addicts-anonymous, and pretty much any argument can be resolved with a Bruce Campbell quote.
On average I spend more time traveling than I do stationary and spend more time camping than in a house. Hiking is one of my absolute favorite activities. This year I went rock climbing for the first time in San Fran, where I learned I falling more than climbing. Static ropes were awesome! I want to go repelling now. This was only a little while before I went mountain climbing in Death Valley where I learned that I am unequivocally *not* a mountain goat. It takes a really long time to get anywhere if you have to keep the majority of your body pressed flat against rock because you're too terrified to do anything else.
Let's go sky diving.
The more serious answer is that I am a small business owner selling art, and I am a part-time student slowly creeping my way towards a college degree. Very rarely am I in a rush, my goal is not to live fast, but to live well.
I adore movies, but I don't get to watch them as often as I'd like. Chick flicks annoy me, and I hate kids movies. Judge me as you will, but they're fucking depressing. Chick flicks are either about lying, missed opportunities, snap judgments or poor communication skills. Kids movies are all about parents dying, lost loves, kidnapping, killing your best friend (?!?!?!), blah blah blah.
Sci-fi, action, horror, comedy are my favorites. I like crime movies, British humor, b-horror, fight scenes and explosions. To be fair, I love serious movies too.
Few Favorites off the top of my head:
--The Red Violin
--Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels
--Army of Darkness
I'm bad at watching tv, I'll go three months without watching a thing then binge for days. Anyone have any recommendations?
Recent likes: Breaking Bad, The Following, Orphan Black
Always Favorites: Torchwood, Being Human (BBC), Rome, Misfits
Truthfully, a little bit of everything. I have yet to meet a genre I don't like. However, there are many artists I can't stand. But yes, that crazy obscure band you think no one has heard of? I love them! That song that's always on the radio, is the trendiest thing out there you hate? I was just rocking out to it!
Handful of favorites off the top of my head:
Vegetables. Not because I love animals, but because I hate plants. Roasted veggies is probably my favorite food. You can hear them screaming while they're slowly burning. ...Too far?
Indian and Thai food are probably my two favorite 'fancy going out' food. Generally, I eat pretty standard American food. Is there a place in Indy to get a good medium-rare burger? They always over cook them, and I like it a little bloody.
I just realized I left this section blank, yet I still recieve messages. This is more surprising than it ought to be.
Recently I've been slacking on m reading, but I'm trying to work myself back into it. Normally I am working on three or four books at once. Currently sitting in my bag right next to me is Sociology of Mental Disorders by Cockerham, Existentialism from Dostoevsky to Sartre selected by Kaufmann and The Vision and the Voice by Crowley. If reading that sentencce alone did not bore you to tears, message me.
--Jean Paul Sartre, Oscar Wilde, Chuck Paleniuk, Michael Criton, Terry Pratchet and Tom Robbins
--Dresden Files by Jim Butcher, Lord of the Rings, Song of Ice and Fire, The Strain, Animal Farm
Someone think of an interesting five and six for me...
This section should really be titled "Stuff that could scare people away". I'll go with that, instead.
Many people tell me I should have been born a man, and I make *a lot* of jokes that I have a penis (or are they jokes?).
