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.
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) ;)
normally obvious from the beginning of any interaction with me.
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.
and here is an unofficial 7. A sense of humor (take that, arbitrary rules!)
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.
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.
