My self-summary
I'm a dude. I enjoy doing dude-ish stuff, like picking up heavy things and moving them from here to there. I like to drive cars, and fix them when they break. I like to shoot guns, if only for the loud noise they make. I pee on things. I like to tear down walls in my house and put them back up. I like to build things. I'll occasionally break something (because I'm a bit of a klutz), and I'll enjoy fixing it. I don't like, or play sports, however. I simply never had any interest in games of physical prowess.

I have many not-dude-specific interests as well. I enjoy cooking food. Not just frozen pizza, burgers, and steaks. I mean real food. Like from-scratch spaghettii or alfredo, desserts (you should really try my cheesecake of death), and any new recipe I can find. I'd like to go to culinary school so I could be someone's personal cordon bleu chef. I enjoy growing bonsai (you know, those cute little trees). I like to sit around and watch something on TV with people. Occasionally, I'll play a video game. Every now and then, I like to break out my flute and play something (although I haven't done that much since high school).

Some of the things I enjoy most people would call downright girly. I really enjoy cleaning the house. I like washing the dishes, by hand. Laundry day is a weekly event I look forward to with great anticipation. I'm even looking forward to the day when I have some kids to make messes for me to clean up.

I also, believe it or not, like to spend time in the company of women. Yes, yes, I know I'm a freak, but they're just so good to look at, and smell, and touch. I think it would be really neat if I had one of my own.
What I’m doing with my life
Right now, I am striving to become more awesome than I already am. Yesterday, was a pretty awesome day, but it was nothing compared to today, and tomorrow is looking good too.

On a daily basis, I fix ICEE machines (Take a break to go get one for yourself, you deserve a treat.) Then I come home and fix up my house a bit. Got a bit of painting to do, and need to look into getting these windows replaced.

As to goals... My 5-year plan isn't too complicated: Meet a woman as awesome as myself to spend a good long time with, sell this house and buy a small farm out in the country (but not far enough out to hear banjos), and maybe start breeding my army with which I plan to conquer the earth.
I’m really good at
Mac Guyvering stuff. I think I'm a little TOO non-specialized. If I want to be good at something, it takes me twice as long as someone with no talent.

Tire gone flat? Stove busted? House on fire? Can't find the ginger for your chicken? Yeah, I can solve all those problems, and only two of them might need a paperclip.
The first things people usually notice about me
I've never actually asked anybody what the first thing they noticed about me was. However; if I put myself in the position of casual observer, and walk past myself, the first thing I would notice would probably be my solidity. Very much a viscous solid.

I'd see my massiveness next. I'm not actually very large; quite the opposite. I'm 6' (5' 11.75" without shoes) tall, and I only weigh 150-160 lbs (it can change by 10 lbs depending on how much I had for lunch the past week), but people JUMP to get out of my way as though I were a miffed sumo. (maybe I just have a scary face...)

Having made it past my massive solidness, I'd most likely flag me as a Man. Because, well, I'm kinda mannish.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My favorite books are usually of the serial variety. I read constantly, and spent more money at the used book store in '06 than in all the retail stores combined, in my whole life. I have some favorite authors (Heinlein, Niven, Goodkind), but I can't choose a favorite. They're all just so wonderful.

I don't really have any favorite movies, and my musical interests are so far-flung that it has become impossible to describe my tastes. I like a bit of everything, and a whole lot of a few things.

Food... Now there's something I can get into! My favorite sandwich is two fried eggs (over medium) with cheese, mayo, and a slice of ham. My favorite staple is baked potatoes with butter, sour cream, cheese, and whatever else is in the fridge. My favorite sushi is the eel roll. My favorite pig-out food is spaghettii (or lasagne, they're about the same). My favorite dessert? It's an abombination I created myself. The 5-layer Cheesecake of Death
Six things I could never do without
1.) Music: I live for my music. It is not merely the spice of my dish of life, it is the plate that holds it up. It's the fork that helps me to eat. It's the squishy bits that allow me to process the sensations of taste and texture in the meal. Without music, I'd not be able to feel.

2.) Coca Cola: Seriously, I'm wondering if maybe they went back to the original recipe and stopped taking the cocaine out. I'm hooked.

3.) My buddies: My little brother Darren, and my best friend/roommate DJ. They put up with me and don't ask too many questions.

4.) Food: I love it. Some of it even tastes good! I'd die if I couldn't eat.

5.) Air: Yes I'm digging, but you gotta admit, it's pretty damn necessary.

6.) Masturbation?: After all, when you've got nothing to do, you've always got something to do.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Too much stuff. I try as hard as I can NOT to think, because when I do, I end up hurting myself (like the time I shoved the chisel through my hand when a random thought distracted me.)

Common themes, however, include: World conquest; New recipes to try; Bonsai; Body modification; Learning everything I can; Pain, and how to avoid it.

Lately, my mental processes have been tuned to the family channel. I think that, just maybe, I'm ready to start working toward the wife and kids thing.
On a typical Friday night I am
Playing with my cats and wondering what normal people would do on Friday nights.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I still have a stuffed animal (raccoon named Charles) from when I was a kid.
You should message me if
You just should. I mean, you made it this far down, and you'll have to scroll all the way back up next. That's a lot of scrolling (due to my long-windedness), even if you just skimmed/skipped over everything between here and the top.
