I will not make you gag or flinch when looking at me for the first time.
I have a history degree which has done me nothing but spout out obscure facts at random times. For example, the Battle of Hastings was one of the sweetest battles in history, as in it was totally sweet.
I make a pretty good tour guide to Seattle's world of pure imagination.
I have an encyclopedic knowledge of 80s music videos, go on ask me anything about Tears for Fears, Lita Ford, or Courtney Cox's role in the He-Man movie.
I have never had to visit the food bank or the free clinic.
I have never had a restraining order against me.
Should be prepared for radness.
Should be old enough to order a drink or three at a local dive bar, but young enough to not be collecting Social Security.
Should have no visible deformities, but a third eye would be kinda cool.
Should love to go see a metal show at the Showbox or wander around an art gallery and make fun of all we see.
Should not be crazy, unless it is in a good way.
Should not mind if I skip a day shaving.
Should have an unhealthy obsession with pirates, webcomics, 80s music, microbrews, or some other unique aspect from popular culture.
Should want to visit Panama one day because Van Halen once sung an awesome song about it, or maybe because it is warm.
Finally, if you are using a free dating site you should have a sense of humor about it.
Soooooo drop me a line and see what happens. I'll take you to some fancy eating restaurant, you know one that does not have ketchup in a packet, but in a bottle.
Still not convinced?! Okay, time to bring my A game.
I'm taller than Tom Cruise.
I'm younger than George Clooney.
I'm cleaner than anyone in Motley Crue.
I'm smarter than Vin Diesel.
I'm more emotionally available than Batman.
I'm less hairy than Robin Williams.
I'm more stable than Charlie Sheen.
And I dress better than Matthew McConaughey. Alright, alright, alright.
What's not to love?
Most of my spare time is spent on projects on my new house. Those limited edition Star Wars busts and Marvel Zombie original artwork is not going to display themselves. When I can, I go out to concerts, movies, and throw money on hookers and blow (kidding!). I picked up the hobby of brewing my own beer and I'm currently striving to make the perfect pint. I do need feedback so, please, try some. (Not kidding!)
Singing along to Dr. Horrible's Sing-along-blog. (Look it up, it is awesome.)
Avoiding usage of emoticons and smiley faces. ;)
When not watching movies and tv, usually comedies, I like to listen to music. I'm the first to admit I have bad taste in music. I like both kinds of music, 80s and metal. Some of my favorite bands include Opeth, Mastodon, Amon Amarth, Led Zeppelin, and recently I've developed an unhealthy obsession with instrumental bands with long, drawn out songs such as Pelican, Explosions In The Sky, and Russian Circles. Don't worry if you haven't heard of them, I promise I'm not trying to sound elitist. Most of the music I listen to has the ability to scare small children. Also I will probably laugh at some of your favorite musicians, please don't take it personal.
Most of the books I read have variant covers and feature dudes in spandex, don't judge. I really enjoy the author Max Barry and several others I can't think of right now. I'm working my way through a vampire book called the Twelve. I often rotate between historic books, sometimes dry textbooks, and fun books involving various themes of sex and death (I can feel you judging).
As for food, I'm a big fan of Mexican restaurants. I am currently on a quest to discover the city's most tasty burger. It was Zak's in Ballard, which closed much to my horror, with Red Mill a close second. Bonus points if you can recommend another place of that caliber. Now you are probably thinking this guy is going to die of a heart attack, look how bad he eats. Well, I'm currently on a diet (I lost over 35 pounds and still going). I just really look forward to my one meal a week where I can eat anything I want. If you take me to Marco Polo in Sodo get ready for me go off on the tastiest fried chicken in the world.
1) My homebrewing kit, I love making my own beer.
2) My comic collection, I'm a little nerdy, but not in your face about it.
3) Something to look forward to like an upcoming vacation.
4) A way to listen to music, radio, computer, etc.
5) The occasional hamburger or taco, sorry vegans if we end up dating I will have to sneak off at least once a week to satisfy my meat cravings.
6) Last but not least, friends and family.
7) Oh, and sparkly vampires. (Kidding!)
The lyrics to obscure 80s songs.
Why there is a party in my pants and no one is invited?
Do we really live in the Matrix?
Who would win in a fight between Joan of Arc and Helen of Troy?
Now that I have the worst song in the world stuck in your head, I could be found on a Friday night at a show, the movies, having a hombrew party with my homebrew friends, or just chilling at home with some entertainment courtesy of the local library system. You know, fun. Fun. Fun. Fun. Fun.
Just to be up front, if you consider yourself "high maintenance" or if 9 out of 10 ex boyfriends would call you "bat shit crazy" or if you are described as "needs medication" we probably will not work out. I'm pretty laid back and try to gravitate to people of the same mindset.
If you still have doubts, remember bad decisions make good stories, I want to be your next good story.
