Okay, NONE of that is true.
By day, I work in a "Computer Nerd" capacity at a local software company that you've probably heard of. By night and on the weekends, you're likely to find me at band practice, out listening to friends' bands, or sitting on the couch watching a movie with my two morbidly obese cats.
I'm a compulsive reader, alternating between nonfiction and fiction (I like horror and sci-fi) and (mostly contemporary) lit. I like board games too. As in Monopoly. Or Operation. Operation RULES!!!
My wife and I have a great open relationship, but this does NOT mean that either of us has mustaches or wears bathrobes at parties. I do like hot tubs, but you'd have to BYOHT, since I don't actually have one.
I can make excellent marinara and meat sauce from scratch. I can make really good mix tapes (if you don't know what a mix tape is, I'd be happy to tell you about them...). I can usually find interesting things to do even in places where there is absolutely nothing interesting to do (and I have the well-colored placemats from Long John Silver's to prove it, dammit).
As a former professional editor, I can use a semi-colon effectively; I appreciate people who love good punctuation and write well. But it's not a deal killer if you can't. See? That was a sentence fragment! I think. Well that one was. So was that.
Oh and I'm a science nerd. Reading about science is one of my favorite things, other than playing music. I love talking about cosmology, astrophysics, biology, whatever with anyone who will talk about it with me. Especially over beer! Beer + science = happy (I like talking about math too).
I love playing and listening and going to see live music. Local bands especially.
I love food, but am by no means a food snob. In fact, any kind of "foam" on a plate makes me feel a little like I'm eating some sort of contraceptive. Other than that, I'll try just about anything. I like making my own food (mostly Italian, which is a result of having a Sicilian mother).
I have this idea for a restaurant called "Purell" where all the food will be served out of those weird squirty hand-lotion bottles and you'll pay by the squirt and our logo will say "How Many Squirts Does It Take To Satisfy You?" Think that's a good idea? Actually now that I wrote it out it kind of sounds gross.

Science: I think Carl Sagan was awesome and had great taste in turtlenecks.
Time Travel: The causality paradoxes that might happen as a result of actually traveling back through time, though I'm pretty sure humans will never be able to re-create the Flux Capacitor. Have you seen Primer?
Photography: Specifically, what kind of camera should I buy?
If you're single or are in an open relationship and want to go out and get some food and/or beverage products, or go see a band, and talk about totally random fun things, I'm your man! Oh and if you want to go ride the giant Ferris wheel (which I just found out is called the Seattle Great Wheel) with me, you get extra points. I'm terrified of it, yet fascinated!
