My self-summary
An open minded geek who works as a programmer and is obsessed with random bits of popular culture.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm working at a small (as in 3 people) software company. If I'm not doing any of that you can usually find me playing a game, reading a book, binge watching a show or playing awesome boardgames with my friends whole night long. ... and meanwhile I'm planing world domination.
I’m really good at
• Explaining technology in layman's terms.
• Talking too much about something, that the other party does not care about.
• Killing time.
• Filling little text boxes with random words that I assume make me sound clever.
• Putting a smile on your face. (It's there, isn't it?)
• Being wrong. (Guess it wasn't...)
• Writing bullet lists.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I have a tiny red spot under my left ear, that I've inherited from my grandfather... okay, no. I have no idea what's the first thing people usually notice about me. Maybe my weird sense of humor? (Which I assume you have already noticed if you've read so far.)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books? ... let me modify that to mostly read media:
C. Clarke's Childhood's End, Worm (a cool webfiction, look it up), Asimov's Robot and Foundation books, Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality, Scott Pilgrim comic series, Umineko no naku koro ni etc. etc.

Movies:
Pan's Labyrinth, the Avengers (I'm kind of obsessed with Marvel Cinematic Universe), The Dark Knight, Cabin in the Woods, Exam, Man from Earth

Shows:
BBC's Sherlock, Game of Thrones, Fate/Zero (yes, I watch anime, problem?), Gundam Seed

Music:
Mostly anything that's not entirely electronic, but I'm kind of into metal in a casual way, so...
Blind Guardian, Kamelot, Within Temptation, Power Glove, Ale Storm and some others that might be more mainstream, and I would lose my hipster card for listing them.

Food:
I'm kind of an omnivore, but I love good food, so I can be elevated temporarily to a higher plane of being with something fancy as sushi, a really well done pasta, or even a well made salad.
The six things I could never do without
1. A World that has at least some intelligent and interesting people in it
2. The Internet... I don't have mobile data on my phone, so I can technically do without it, but extended exposure to non-internet connected environment will produce withdrawal symptoms.
3. My smartphone. It's a Sony Ericcson Xperia Pro. (It has a QWERTY keyboard, why don't modern phones have QWERTY keyboards?) Even without mobile data I use it to play games (mostly older ones emulated, heck there is a working PSP emulator on my low-end Android Phone), read books, comics, watch new episodes of TV shows, writing code etc. ... Also I will use it to contact you if you're interested, so it is pretty important. d:
4. Food that is not boring.
5. My cat! ... oh wait, I don't own a cat... how could I ever do without it? D:
6. My sense of humor (It was here a minute ago... )
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My previously mentioned plan of world domination. It needs constant tweaking. Yes, registering to OkCupid is part of the plan.
Other than that? Well I sometimes have these ideas of genre novels that I sometimes start writing and usually leave after a few pages, which is kind of sad.
On a typical Friday night I am
Home alone watching a show or a movie, unless it's boardgame night.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
That I was born literally the same day as Megan Fox. ...oh... that's the most random thing about me.

Let's see then... umm... I'm willing to sit on public transportation 3 hours a day, just to work in the environment where I'm already comfortable at, instead of searching for a job, less far away.
You should message me if
...it's Wednesday.

Okay no, message me if you found the above insane ramblings interesting enough.

(Why Wednesday? No reason actually, message me whenever you like.)
