My self-summary
Let me just say that the username is meant ironically. It was chosen for me by some friends who set up a Livejournal account, and I used it here for quizzes, not realizing that there was a dating site attached. Now I seem like a slut. But I'm not...

I'm a fairly run-of-the-mill, average guy with a few quirks (but aren't we all?). I'm a self-avowed geek; I read and watch lots of science fiction and volunteer for a local science fiction convention called Polaris and the affiliated Constellation Awards.

Yeah, like I said... I'm a geek.

But I also enjoy watching sports, which is unusual in the gay community, but I'm not the type to just sit on the couch and veg with a beer and a bowl of chips. I enjoy watching baseball (the Blue Jays) and am a big hockey fan (Go Leafs Go!), which is ironic because I can't skate. (I own a pair of skates and want to learn, but haven't gotten around to it.) Oh, and I bowl in a league, too.

And just to make myself sound more stereotypical, I enjoy theatre, especially musicals. I once auditioned for the Broadway production of Rent (though I didn't know it was the Broadway production until after I was finished - I was just there to keep a friend company).
What I’m doing with my life
I work as a web developer for a small company, but I firmly believe in working to live, not living to work. I keep myself busy when I'm not at work by volunteering for conventions.
I’m really good at
Trivia. My mind is a bottomless pit of useless trivia. Which might explain why things drop out from time to time. I really out to put a bottom in that pit so that stops happening.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm told that I have a unique smile. Since I have all of my teeth, I'm not sure what they mean by that, but I'll assume it's meant as a compliment.

I've also been told by a number of people that I resemble John Simm. I've also been mistaken for John Hodgman on more than one occasion - don't ask me, I don't understand either.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I'll give any science fiction a try, but I'm partial to Terry Pratchett, Robert J. Sawyer, James Alan Gardner, Charles Stross and the classics, like Asimov and Clarke. I'm not a huge fantasy fan, though I make an exception for the Harry Dresden series by Jim Butcher, the Sookie Stackhouse books by Charlaine Harris (on which the show True Blood is based) and the aforementioned Pratchett. I'm also trying out some Brandon Sanderson these days. I also think Jasper Fforde is brilliant, and will admit to a weakness for what I jokingly refer to as "the gay equivalent to 'chick-lit'," like Robert Rodi's, Joe Keenan's and Warren Dunford's books. (But it has to be funny. No depressing fiction for me, thanks.)

Movies: Whacked out comedies like "It's A Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World," "Clue," "Noises Off", "Murder By Death" and pretty much anything from Mel Brooks. Star Trek, of course. The Star Wars (original trilogy, thank you), X-Men and Lord of the Rings films.

TV: My TV is almost always tuned to Space. Again, Star Trek is a favourite, even though I've seen them all about a billion times. Sanctuary, Doctor Who and Torchwood are also featured on my viewing schedule. While I don't go out of my way to watch The Listener, Eureka or Merlin, I'll happily watch them too when they're on. I thought Lost was brilliant. When I'm not watching Space, I'm usually watching a sporting event or Wipeout (a guilty pleasure). I've lost track of House, though I'm still buying the DVDs and will catch up eventually. I'm slowly getting caught up on True Blood as well.

I have zero interest in reality shows. If I want reality, I'll look around me, not at the TV.

Music: I'm most likely to be found listening to Pet Shop Boys and Erasure, though I like Franz Ferdinand and Rufus Wainwright. I used to have a lot of Billy Idol and Jethro Tull albums as well, but they went missing and I haven't replaced them yet. Okay, I'll admit that I listen to Lady Gaga too.

Food: Pasta, steak, and British pub fare. I've recently developed a taste for sushi, though I'm still reliant on other people to do the ordering.
The six things I could never do without
My friends, books, Star Trek, pasta, ice cream and my PDA. Seriously, I'd be lost without it. And I'd be dead if I lost it.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Where my career is headed.
On a typical Friday night I am
After I get home from my bowling league, I'm usually sitting in front of the computer doing convention work, or going out with friends for a few beers to unwind.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
How many times do I have to admit to being a big science fiction geek?
You should message me if
You enjoy good conversation about a variety of topics, or you know to whom I referred above when I said that a lot of people tell me I resemble John Simm.
