My self-summary
I'm happy with life and I feel like people should be able to say that way more than they do. I'm an intelligent person with a massive sense of humor and I'm pretty easy to talk to if you're will to have a conversation (oddly that issue comes up quite a bit). I believe in optimism and realism; Expect decent things will happen but I can deal as long and it's not unreasonably overwhelming (re: four horsemen... though I'd probably find that amusing to some degree). Bottom line is that everything has to do with laughter. Except puns... puns are below mimes on the Entertainment Ladder. The only thing lower than puns is Stalin, and then Kathy Griffen.

I do not keep old fingernails, I have no secret rooms with conspiracy string between pictures of empty garbage cans. My basement is not a den of horrors, though it is under-furnished. I'm not the guy the internet has taught you to fear. I'm oddly normal and using an online dating site... Here's to hoping you are too (normal... the latter, I think, is sorted). :)
What I’m doing with my life
I'm just trying to do what everyone else is doing. Make a better life for myself and balance doing my thing. I am a strong believer in The Optimism Bias.

Also building a pool to fill with gold bullion so I can swim in it. I mean, if you're not striving for that, what _are_ you doing with your life?
I’m really good at
Making people laugh... and noticing things.

Also, I'm fantastic at taking someone's leftovers and making something out of it. I hate to throw away food and it's like a mini-Iron Chef.
The first things people usually notice about me
People say my eyes are very blue.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Music is literally across the board (except country... of course). Right now I'm heavy on NPR and Eagles of Death Metal... Wax Tailor, Soul Coughing, Tom Waits... just give me something non-bubblegum and interesting. Lyrically or musically.

I haven't watched network TV in forever, but I enjoy netflix and the sporting events of whatever nature (I do not yell at the TV in most cases... and all my remotes are unbroken)

I enjoy reading but time has not been permitting. Very sad.

I cook a TON, like any good Italian should. I bake my own bread, make my own sauce and my own pasta. I enjoy meat, but eat more vegetables than anything. The Public Market is the greatest thing ever. Usually the rule is if I can't conceive how to make something in theory, I won't rush to eat it. Though Taco Bell is awesome... just awesome.
The six things I could never do without
A proper chef's knife.
Sense of reason
My car?
Winter... I love it with limits... when we start talking in 10-20 degrees Kelvin, I balk.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Random projects around the house, right now.
On a typical Friday night I am
Dunno... What do you want to do? As long as I don't have to dance.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
My deep dark secrets are not that ridiculous and who can afford the energy to keep track of all their wheeling and dealings? I'm a pretty open person though if someone wants to ask.
You should message me if
I'm looking for someone who can carry a conversation and has a good sense of humor (probably going to need it).

Bottom-line is be realistically happy and love yourself. Be emphatic about the things you care about. You dig those things and it means something to me to know why. Enjoy who you are, and it will be easy for me too as well.

This is going to sound condescending but it's not intended to be as such. Conversations are two way streets. Like improv, never leave someone without something to work with. Ask a question, share a thought... engage with the person. Otherwise it's an interview. I appreciate how hard this is for people, but it's important. :)
