I am geeky, quiet, and faithful
I work at a public University, in computer networking.
2010 update: I'm married now (to Dichotomygrrl -- yes, we met on OKCupid!), and am enjoying this new lifestyle very much.
These can be lots of things, but the most common examples are computers and networks that are behaving in unexpected ways. (Thus my job is a good fit.)
A friend introduced me to Orson Scott Card. She later told me that I'm a lot like Ender, and she is like Bean. That's probably a profound observation. FWIW, I think she is just like Jill Pole in the begining of The Silver Chair.
MOVIES:(Grr... this got cut off -- starting over!)I really liked The Lion, the Which and the Wardrobe. I also enjoyed the Lord of the Rings. I have two complaints about all of those: 1. The movies were too long, and 2. They left too much out. (okay, I'm hard to please.) I meant to see Aeon Flux when it was in theaters (which wasn't long), but I missed it. Ah, memories of 90s animation. Older stuff: The Lion King came out about the same time that my dad died; it packs some powerful emotions for me. I loved Doctor Strangelove for many years, but our current lack of a cold war makes it harder to love the bomb. I liked almost every Jackie Chan movie I ever saw, but they don't seem to be nearly as good for a second or third viewing. But Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon and Hero go much deeper.
Okay, it's probably weird to say this in a profile, but I think music is uhm.. so/so. I mean, it's fine. But I'm not way into it. I mostly listen to Christian stuff -- like DCTalk (They're not broke up; they're just takin' a break!), Mercy Me, and Rebecca St. James. When running, I need more "beat" than these favorites provide. Searching for this on itunes seems to always lead me to the 80s, and many guilty pleasures there, like Duran Duran and Nena (and not just 99 Luftballons).
I already mentioned Orange Juice NOT from Concentrate. Honey Nut Cheerios are sweet AND crunchy. Turkey sausage lets you get a little meat in your breakfast without too much fat. If you pile meat and cheese on bread, you get a sandwitch -- this is very important technology that we all need to understand. Bento and low-cal TV dinners round out my nutritional intake.
Air, water (or OJNFC), shelter, food.
Okay, most private.
If one looks at the tests I've been taking lately, one might get the idea that I'm some kind of a kinky pervert. However, please note my purity score on the comparison page, before making any harsh judgements. At worst, I'm a pure pervert. It would probably be more accurate for me to say that I desire to keep by body (and mind -- but that's harder) pure out of respect for God, I have other desires, too. OKCupid feels like a safe place to explore that (It's just a test; not porn).
