My self-summary
My mom says nice things about me and my friends say ... well, just ignore what they say. If you can't trust your mom, who can you trust?

I find my self moderately humorous, but others find me pretty funny or not so funny so I guess it depends on your sense of humor, but you are going to need to have one or tolerate me laughing at my own jokes. I am an introvert. I like to read - mostly news, economics, science, humor and cat videos. I listen to NPR sometimes. I think it's better to have information than uncertainty. I like to understand people, even their flaws. I lurk on reddit. I like spooky Halloween trails and bring people that can scream for my pleasure. I like movies. I play some sports (volleyball, soccer) badly. I find ways to get my kids out of the house and expose them to the "outdoors" on the weekends I have them and they moan something about the Geneva Convention, but I am not a signatory so I don't have to comply.

Pros: I can see over most people. I have a decent job and a clown car. I am not living with my mother and she does not live with me. My written English is pretty good and I spell fairly well. You can probably beat me in scrabble though because my vocabulary has never been able to keep up with women. Women have names for hundreds of "colors" and I only count about 10 colors. Eggshell? That's white-ish. Aqua? blue...ish. There is light blue and dark blue but they are all part of the blue family. Each shade of blue does not need an interior designer to name it. I know this is not real because two paint companies in the same store give different names to the same "colors". Seriously?

Cons: I am unwilling to skydive, I mean, who jumps out of a perfectly good airplane? I don't ride motorcycles. My singing sounds like an injured walrus mating call. I avoid mid-day sun or wears hats and stick to shady areas - may be part vampire, but not the Twilight kind. (I've never actually seen Twilight, but I hear the vampires glitter and that shit just ain't right.) I am losing my hair. I cannot tell you the number of times that I've been told, "I can't take you anywhere" after I've been slightly mischievous. I have no fashion sense - I have orange and yellow sweatshirts and I will wear them.

I don't watch professional sports. No football, hockey, baseball or basketball.

I'm pretty casual outside of work. T-shirts in the summer, sweatshirts in the winter. I dress for comfort and not for style.

Politically, I'm somewhere left of center although I refuse to join either party because ... Grocho Marx.
What I’m doing with my life
By day, computer guy solving problems.

By night, evil villain plotting world domination. Not very successfully, I might add.
I’m really good at
Making chili - I mean, at least I like it. And as my son said to me the other day, "I only like your Chili. it is the best."
Oh, and fresh salsa with cilantro. Lots of cilantro.
Fixing computers.
Finding the humor in a situation.
Really bad puns.
The first things people usually notice about me
I have no idea. Some people have called me Ronald McDonald because of my color choices and others say I melt into the crowd. Part spy and part ninja.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books - Dune, Forever War, Lord of the Rings, Hitchhiker's guide.

Movies - Serenity, Matrix, Fifth Element, Children of Men, Airplane, Blazing Saddles, Holy Grail, Green Mile, Watchmen, The Matrix, and others.

Music - Mostly rock, pop, and alternative. Older stuff includes Beatles, Mama's and Papa's, Elton John, Billy Joel, Dire Straits (except for that "Money for nothing" song), ELO, Pink Floyd and others. Newer stuff includes Pink, Dido, Maroon 5, Train, and many others.

Food - Chocolate, Pizza, lasagna, pretzel rolls, pasta, garlic, raw bell peppers, sourdough bread with butter, chocolate, garlic mashed potatoes, chocolate, toasted coconut marshmallows, tomatoes and cucumbers, good ribs, carved roast beef sandwich with horseradish, onion and bbq sauce, and chocolate ice cream. I have a sweet tooth, although I rarely order dessert when I go out. Oh, and chocolate. I can't forget the chocolate.

My diet at home is mostly vegetarian though, especially in the summer. I'll admit to being a picky eater. Some flavors or textures just don't mesh with me.

I don't eat seafood or fungus. No bay crabs for me. Feel free to have some crabs while I have a piece of this cow.
The six things I could never do without
If you assume we have the basics of air, food, water, sleep...

Computers, indoor plumbing, electricity, imagination, chocolate, curiosity, humor, and the ability to follow instructions.

And having lost power in a storm again (thanks Pepco), I can confirm the importance of electricity.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How can I get my kids outside?

Why do so many people support Trump?
On a typical Friday night I am
Out for a walk chasing Pokemon with the kids, watching a movie, or reading. Sometimes a little work.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I sing in the car while driving but I need the music loud so I don't have to hear myself singing.
