I like rainy days, sodium lights, and concrete buildings. I get a little bit suspicious about people that always seem very happy. Dry, somewhat self deprecating humor is my jam.
Also, I would probably be a good thug. I'm a little too tall, a little too big, and have a little too much brute strength to operate perfectly in polite society. Instead I got a degree in physics. 20/20 hindsight, I guess.
I'm working on my heritage arts in preparation of the predicted economic apocalypse (or whatever type of apocalypse happens to fit your fancy) of 2030. That and video games.

On the subject of food: if I have not tried it, I have a reasonable expectation that it will be edible, and there is no sign it will make me ill, then I consider it my self made duty to eat it. The only foods that I have no desire to ever try again are sea urchin, blood sausage, and beef intestine.
Late night internet purchases
I once spent a weekend in the past progressive when my ride broke down. I was stuck. It was tense.
- You have a fun fact you would like to share or quiz me on.
- I have a typo or some other problem that you can't resist correcting.
- You have a corgi, border collie, or similar dog I can play with. You can come too if you want, I guess.
- You would like to be regaled with tales of daring and interest over coffee, tea, burritos, sushi, or anything else. Other available tales include tales of disinterest, stories without a punch line, and bad retellings of television shows or video games. Or jokes. I have a good number of bad jokes.
