My self-summary
Little, yellow, different? (ok, well I am NOT little but my hair is indeed yellow(ish) and I am most definitely different).

I am a curious person by nature in both senses of the word. I love to learn and there is a good chance if you have a hobby involving power tools (that I don't know much about), I will be interested in it. I have a terminal case of gallows humor for which there is simply NO cure.

I am very much the type to be one of the guys. It is true in my professional life as well as my personal life.

My headstone (which I won't have since I want to be charred into ashes and make unsuspecting people sneeze uncomfortably) would probably read "Nice Shoes" or "Please Hold, I'll be right back". I have little to no filters and will almost always make some sort of inappropriate joke. I have been told I deadpan very well; TOO well sometimes.
What I’m doing with my life
I work for a living like a mostly normal adult, but at night, I become the world's least known superhero who moves EVERYTHING 1mm to the left -- I don't wear a cape though since it just seems to get in the way and is yet another thing to put in the laundry.
I’m really good at
Defying expectations. I don't look like what I am supposed to look like (and possibly what you hope I would look like). I work in a profession that has almost nothing to do with my academic interests.

I excel at being an unconventional geek.

I try to be funny a good deal but with limited success. Any complaints, please send a politely worded note to our writing staff. They are a good lot.

I also have an adept talent that a very great once in a while, when I message someone, I do such a piss poor job at it that none has ever replied. It makes me think my diction is faulty (and my delusions of cleverness are even more so) ;)
The first things people usually notice about me
Hmm...my eyes. Other notables are that I always dress in black (I am in mourning for the intellect of mankind (hand to forehead)), have really long hair (possibly inapproriately so for my age). I have a very caustic, twisted sense of humor that is
normally obvious from the beginning of any interaction with me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
a: Siddhartha, anything by Hardy, and far too many to enumerate here. Please ask!
b: Dr. Zhivago, The Southpark Movie, La Pianiste, 8 Women, Borat, La Vie en Rose, Man Bites Dog, Blue Velvet, again -- TONS more
c: A plethora (remember the 3 Amigos?) of genres and artists.(everything from Classical to Noise -- yep).
I am a big metal fan (lots of Death, Thrash, Black, NWOBHM, and some Prog).
I have re-embraced my love of East Coast Hardcore (oh look, it is High School!)
I love old Industrial, Martial Industrial, NeoFolk, Post Punk, and a bunch more.
I suppose I could list a ton of bands, but let's say it is from Dvorak to Darkthrone with some DRI and Dusty Springfield thrown in.
Want to know more? ASK! (Smoke signals work, but if I sneeze, I might not get back to you)

d:I love cooking shows! also LOVE documentaries about mundane things, like hot dogs and construction paper. I watch "How It's Made" all the time. I never knew making a hockey puck and snow shoes could be so interesting. I once called this show: embarrassingly Canadian. I also love Top Gear and have a rather embarrassing crush on James May and his ridiculous shirts and hair.

Food wise, well, there isn't enough time or space to rant on as I would like. Suffice it to say, I love everything about food, particularly cooking. This is also true of beer and cocktails/spirits, and am interested in learning more about the way of the grape.
Six things I could never do without
1. My laptop 2. My kittens 3. Shower 4. Black Stompy Boots/shoes 5. Smart Phone (oh yes, tech shackles!) 6. A Bottle of Evian

and here is an unofficial 7. A sense of humor (take that, arbitrary rules!)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The measly processor in my brain is severely overclocked. It is ON 110% of the time and probably needs a rest. It also needs to be rebooted every so often. An upgrade would be most excellent!

My real (and very spicy) brain was lost in a zombie related incident. Ninjas and Pirates tried to help, but alas, they were too late.

Where are the night owls? I seem to attract early birds.

Why it is probably NOT a good idea to have a second triple espresso.

Why is the signal to noise ratio here so poor. People, "your hot" isn't the way to greet a person with a mostly functional brain.

On a typical Friday night I am
I can be found going to a show (largely metal these days), out for drinks and dinner, at the gym, at work, once upon a time at Manray (which sadly is no more), etc. (Not necessarily in that order and I am open to new ideas).
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Hmmm...I am VERY shy but you will never believe it. That is about it, otherwise, if it is plastered all over the internet, it isn't exactly private any more...
You should message me if
You dare!!!

and if you have a great disdain for impractical shoes and (ridiculously overpriced) purses...

Don't mind ignoring the "Falling Rocks" sign.

You know the difference between: Their, They're, and There. :) Your, yore, and You're (and Ur was a Sumerian city) -- Ok, I will even go into further detail here: Your is a possessive pronoun, yore is an imprecise temporal noun, and you're is a contraction of you and are. So, if you're going to say "you're smart, etc." check your grammar/spelling. :)

You are over 25. Come on, guys, there are lots of young women here closer to your age. If I can feasibly be your parent or you are not legal to drink yet, I am too old for you. If, conversely, you can feasibly be my parent, I am too young.
