My self-summary
I love meeting new people and having fun. I'm pretty relaxed about about most things.

All in all, I'd say I'm an open book. I'm always happy to share stuff about myself when asked, and no subject is considered intrusive. By the same token, I love getting to know someone and swap stories, so I'm a pretty good listener.

I'm a writer and manage a fairly successful website about gaming. If you are interested in board gaming, card gaming, tabletop gaming or roleplaying, that would certainly help things. OTherwise, an interest in writing would be good.

I'm a pretty avid reader. I'll read pretty much just about anything, but tend to stay away from "books" involving teenage vampires. I'm a gamer but don't take it too seriously. I'm happy playing table top games or video games, but it doesn't control my life.

I will add that I'm polyamorous. I'm married to grl_withguitar so yeah, you should be okay with the fact that I'm in a stable, happy relationship. If you're not sure what poly means I'm happy to answer questions.

I am creative, considerate, and funny (at least, I like to think so).
What I’m doing with my life
Right now I am busy balancing my personal life, professional life and my ongoing education. I'm pretty busy but always manage to find time for fun.
I’m really good at
Writing, listening, being a generally all-around good person (at least, I hope so).
The first things people usually notice about me
Well I don't know about first thing, but people tend to think that I'm older than I actually am. Sometimes it's complimentary, sometimes not.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Well, let's see...

As far as books go, I tend to be drawn to sci-fi and fantasy, but more often than not only the ones that don't take themselves too seriously. I've been cringing at all the promotional stuff I've seen for Twilight. That being said, I do enjoy classics, like: The Sound and the Fury, The Heart is a Lonely Hunter and even the occasional dystopian book like A Clockwork Orange, Battle Royale or even specific authors: Terry Pratchett, Neil Gaiman, Tom Holt, Douglas Adams

Here's a short list of some of my favorite films: Star Wars, Jaws, Inherit The Wind Juno, Superbad, Breakfast at Tiffanies, anything Miyazaki, Supersize Me, Some Like It Hot, Amadeus, Dr. Strangelove, The Libertine, Quills, I Heart Huckabees, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, The Pink Panther (original), Best In Show, The Birdcage, School of Rock, Tommy, Time Bandits, Hook

As far as TV goes, my tastes are pretty varied, here's my list:Firefly, Deadwood, Rome, Weeds, Arrested Development, Home Movies, Metalacolypse, Lucy the Daughter of The Devil, Heroes, Doctor Who, Fawlty Towers, Monty Python's Flying Circus, Lost, Coupling, Game of Thrones

Music is pretty much the same story. I have a pretty big record collection and when it's combined with my cds, it starts to get a bit ridiculous. My least favorites are new country (I'll always take Johnny Cash over Garth Brooks or his like) and heavy rap. However, here's a sample of my record collection: The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Sparks, Supertramp, ELO, Louie Armstrong, Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, The Police, Elton John, David Bowie

When it comes to food, I'm pretty adventurous and will try anything once. :D
The six things I could never do without
1) Pens
2) Paper
3) Good Conversation
4) Books
5) Movies/TV Shows on DVD
6) My Records + Record Player
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Story ideas... when I can start my career... anything really...
On a typical Friday night I am
Sitting at home and either playing video games, writing, drinking or any combination of those three. (I'm not really as big of a home body as I sound... I usually go out Sunday nights)

Recently, I started a board gaming group, which meets every other Friday at my place, so that's been fun. I've been slowly dipping my toe into the pool of board game reviews as well, so that has been exciting.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Like I said previously... I'm an open book. If you want to know something private about me, just ask. I'm happy to share stories, experiences, mistakes and regrets.

Something private I'm willing to admit is that I have a tattoo. It's on my left shoulder blade and it's a stylized version of the sleeping gryphon illustration from Alice in Wonderland.
You should message me if
You're looking to meet people who are different, outgoing and like to have fun.

Also, if you aren't freaked out by polyamorous people. I'm kind of tired of being a social pariah on here... :p
