My self-summary
I'm a bit quirky, and enjoy hanging out watching a movie, going to see shows, or being involved with theater in general. I'm very much a geek, and at least enjoy my own sense of humor. I have a penchant for Hawaiian shirts. I also really enjoy cooking and fixing things.

I am geeky, funny, and cuddly.

Happily married to look_a_shiny, but open for more.

I also tend to feel very self conscious in conversation, especially when talking with new people. I really have trouble figuring out when in the course of making friends I should actually bring up topics. This somehow always comes across as shy and/or creepy, and I don't mean to be.
What I’m doing with my life
I work as an automation Systems Engineer. Ask if you want details.

Slowly restoring a 1979 Jeep CJ7 - though that's been put on hold until funds are more liquid.

I'm into theatrical lighting and sound, I fix things, collect and restore vintage (50s to 80s) lab equipment, make small projects with Arduino/PIC microcontrollers, see plays/musicals/shows, I camp a couple of times a year in Maine and New Hampshire.
I’m really good at
Cooking, fixing electro/mechanical things, making a room groan from a good/bad joke, computers, saying the wrong thing at the right moment.

Getting in the way when trying to help.

Also, really good with my hands.
The first things people usually notice about me
The bad puns.
Or apparently, my beard.

Books: John Grisham, Shakespeare, Robert Ludlum, technical manuals, Martian Chronicles, LOTR

Movies: The LOTR: Trilogy, Office Space, Star Trek, Evil Dead (1+2), Army of Darkness, Big Fish, most Pixar stuff, really I just about any movie that is not just action fluff. And then there are exceptions.

The six things I could never do without

Sushi
Rocks, Trees, Ocean. As a single thing, and time to enjoy them.
My glasses
Bad jokes.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Puns, how things work, human sociological constructs, cute animals, completely random things, the origins of various traditions.
On a typical Friday night I am
At home, cooking something nice and watching a movie/show with the wife.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I compensate for anxious situations with humor. But just because I'm being funny doesn't mean I'm anxious.
You should message me if
You like a dry/sarcastic/'lame' sense of humor, vent at, need something fixed, or are willing to try and get to know someone who has a quiet depth to them and is unable to compress it meaningfully for an online dating summary. Or if you are interested in anything I'm looking for.
