Summarizing myself feels trite and a bit shallow. I'm more than just a paragraph on a page. To truly know someone is the real challenge and cannot be accomplished through a "self summary". Well, OKCupid, I deny your rubric for self description. I defy your logic, reject your reality and substitute it with my own.
That is, to say, it is challenging to sum myself up. I have various interests that range from the mundane to flights of fancy. I'm something of a renaissance man, as I will study anything that catches my interest.
Scientist, dreamer, artist, musician, hopeless romantic, all are terms that have been used to describe me. I suppose that's one place to start.
Some say they seek a partner in crime. I think big. I'm looking for applicants to join my Guild of Calamitous Intent.
I logged back in today for the first time in forever.
Funny thing, I picked up a new hobby recently, making my own wine. Well, specifically I'm making mead, Scandinavian honey wine, getting back to my Norse roots and whatnot. The first batch is okay. It needs to age a bit more to mellow out.
There was a time when I called myself a "nice guy." A few years ago, I realized that this moniker had been appropriated by some boys in fedoras, claiming to be "nice guys" but weren't all that nice. So no, I don't consider myself a "nice guy." I strive to be a good person and pursue understanding and meaningful relationships. One of my friends described me as a Chaotic Good Paladin of Freedom.
Once upon a time I was a good musician and wish I had a group to play with again.
Good with my hands.
Good at planning things out when it's go time.
Cooking, not nearly as good as my chef friend, but I can hold my own.
Often people say I look familiar. I swear, I just have one of those faces . . . I think.
Movies: The Fifth Element, Serenity, Dogma, Snatch, Scott Pilgrim vs The World
Shows: Doctor Who, Firefly, Weeds, Robot Chicken, Metalocalypse, Venture Brothers, Sherlock, Once Upon A Time, Game of Thrones, anything with a decent plot
Music: I like me some metal and rock, Iron Maiden, Nightwish, Halestorm, Protomen, Sound Garden, I could go on, but you get the idea.
A tooth brush
A cup of tea
A good book
My right to party (I'd very well fight for it)
My license to chill
Lately I've been contemplating the merits of being a super scientist over a costumed villain. I mean, really, the super scientist adventures around and such, but the costumed villain gets a snazzy outfit and henchmen, not to mention the ever essential death ray.
