My self-summary
I like to plan adventurous dates like gondola rides, choose-your-own-adventure dates, indoor rock climbing, sleigh rides with hot cocoa. Don't worry, I'll tell you what to wear.

I gave the devil blues lessons in exchange for his soul.

I'm trying to end a lifelong on-and-off love affair. She is sweet, and richly brown, and makes me feel bubbly. But so unhealthy for me!
(10 points if you guess right ;) 

Your cat will love me.

I like having tv-series marathons and netflixing weird movies.

I once had an Isaac Newton moment, when an apple fell on my head. I leapt up, flipped off the tree, and flew away.

I love Space. I originally majored in Aerospace Science, and worked for Space Command while in the Air Force, with missile-detection satellites, and I loved every second of it.

I think it's more fun to have a drink and talk in a comfortable place, than to shout in each other's ears and get a headache from the club's sound system.

I have epic dreams about things like fighting the evil robot overlords, and tweet about them. Follow me here: www.twitter.com/israfel070

I love my little sister. My friends are my family and nothing means more to me than having a little one-on-one time, catching up with my best childhood friends.

I have been known to read things like Supreme Court rulings or Thomas Jefferson's treatises on city planning and actually find them interesting. I have no idea how that got wired in.

I am actually a trustworthy guy, who knew those were still around? My integrity is important to me.

I get lost in thought a lot. It's ok to grab me if you want attention though.

My terminal-illness plan: skydive just offshore, over a busy summer beach, with a custom parachute that says "Cancer can suck it." Pull out the pins from a few hundred feet up.

I have four fish named USS Nimitz, USS Arizona, PT-41, and Spot. Unfortunately, little USS Cole was sick when I got him and he was ceremoniously scuttled. I have a desk plant named Scruffy and he doesn't put up with bullshit.

I mail back junkmail with the Rejection Hotline as my phone number.

I imagine that the gold statue-man at Venice Beach burns with jealousy for the Blue Man Group.

I text my partying friends with philosophical thoughts; I'm the exact opposite of a drunk-texter.

I have attended around 120 funerals (While in the Air Force Honor Guard, I used to perform military honors at them). It's weird whenever I think about this. If you're offended by occasional black humor then let's call it off right here.

I like to sit down and listen to things. Sometimes story-centric albums (such as Dream Theater, Shearwater, Phantom of the Opera, the Protomen, and Chronicles of Israfel), sometimes audiobooks (A Song of Ice and Fire is a fave), or just random things like the original radio broadcast of War of the Worlds. I have also been known to read books aloud while trading off driving on the occasional road trip (Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy is great for this!).

I've been to most of the states, as well as China, Hong Kong, and central Mexico. I got my first job at 14 and saved every single dime for a year, just so I could see Japan the next summer. I've met a lot of people and I've seen a lot of life. I have strong opinions and I like to talk about things with an open mind. To me, having different opinions doesn't preclude caring about a person.
What I’m doing with my life
After spending a few years in Sales I got myself a nice little 9-5 job I enjoy very much. I'm at the beginning of a career in Accounting, in about 2 years I'll be weighing some big options with career paths in that field.
I’m really good at
Lots of things, I'm a fast learner and I'm always trying out new hobbies. I've enjoyed paintball, flying Cessnas a little bit, model rockets, making electronic gizmos, just reading the hell out of stacks of books, rescuing kittens, a new video game or two a year.

I have also tried lots of strange jobs (phone operator, theatre stagehand, courier, summer camp counselor, Intelligence Analyst, Air Force Honor Guard) just to gain interesting experiences! It's time for me to settle into a career though ;)
The first things people usually notice about me
My stubble, or my dimples.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
All the stuff mentioned above.

TV faves include A Game of Thrones, Battlestar Galactica, Arrested Development, Rome, Dexter, Flight of the Conchords, Firefly, True Blood, and similar things.

I take my Kindle everywhere. Passionate reader here :)
The six things I could never do without
Amazing books
High threadcount sheets
Tablet/e-reader
Hobby projects
Indian & Japanese food
The Internet
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What the world will be like in the not too distant future, and what we can do now to make it even better/keep it from getting worse.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am very susceptible to petite brunettes who have a warm personality, are artistic in some way, and have brown eyes I can drown in.
You should message me if
If being dorky with your boyfriend is ultimate fun! If brains are a turn-on for you. If you feel flattered by me slapping your ass and giving you a compliment. If you want someone you can have a deep conversation about life's travails with. If you can tolerate someone who feels self-satisfied when he uses a word like "travails." If you can appreciate how fun it is to pronounce "kayak" several times (and paddle around in them, too... I guess)
