My self-summary
Wow, you put up a picture and suddenly you get more attention than... well, you get a lot of visits. Guess I should try to make my profile better.

Been in the city five and a half years; came up for one of those jobs that takes all of your time but pays you a lot. Well, enough to pay back the loans you had to take out to qualify for the job. After the loans are gone, I will probably try to get into government or academia. I'd also make a great house husband - I can cook, clean, design, stay really fit so you can show me off, etc.

I don't plan to stay in this city, and tend not to get on with those who say they are enlivened by the "energy" of the city. Did they plug themselves into the one outlet above the hot plate that serves as a kitchen in the closet that is termed an apartment? No, not for me (especially since that energy is derived from a nuclear power plant - why can't we coat the buildings with PV cells? I want smaller, quieter, more green (forest, not drugs), and where Chinese take-out doesn't cost $20 (Yes, those places exist).

I don't swear, use tobacco, or drink, and don't believe that a crowd of a hundred thousand in a small space is a good thing. I cross streets at the cross-walk when the walk signal is in my direction (its only fair - you want cars to stop for red lights, why shouldn't you be expected to stop at a red hand? Bicyclists in this city... ).

Oh, and I do not put pictures of my face online. Even on Facebook. I WILL SEND ONE TO YOU IF AND WHEN WE SET UP A MEETING. If you ask before then, I will assume you have not read this and will be disappointed.

What do all of those orientation options even mean? I don't know, but I like the option "I don't want to be seen by straight people." If we had such options in real life.... So what am I? If we like each other, who cares what the label is. A rose by any other name... aww, so sweet, he can quote Shakespeare.

And hello people from around the world! I'm not sure why you are messaging me, but tell me about life in your country. How do you view the United States?
What I’m doing with my life
Working. Trying to figure out the next steps. Trying not to get into trouble. Occasionally succeeding.

I'm regularly told that I should do stand-up comedy. Probably would be good at it.
I’m really good at
debate, analyzing, finding dress shirts for under $20. In fact, I had to dress up for work (a/k/a "grown-up costume") and I realized that everything I was wearing was either a gift or had been purchased on sale. It made me very happy.
The first things people usually notice about me
Probably that I'm raising my hand to ask permission to speak. Makes it easier when they all stop to look at me - might think I'm crazy, but at least they're listening. Or maybe the cowboy hat on my desk. The desk at work. (Being "professional" is dumb). Or that I have Batman hanging off my wall.

Also, a very dry sense of humor/wit, precise use of language and critical (as in objective analysis) opinions as to everything. I don't really have one of those filters, so if you ask me what I think about something, I'm going to tell you.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Well written things. I don't care what the critics say - don't tell me what a masterpiece is - if I like it then its good. For example, The Fountainhead, Catch-22, Dogma, and The West Wing are great; Jane Eyre... not so much.

I have watched the entire series of the following: The West Wing, MacGyver, The A-Team, Knight Rider, Highlander, Hercules: The Legendary Journeys, Star Trek: The Next Generation, Merlin, Avatar: The Last Airbender, Ultimate Justice League... and others I can't recall right now. But you can probably see the pattern.
The six things I could never do without
Air, Water, Food... see, I'm very literal. Also very analytical.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
You. Just kidding, that'd be really creepy.

Life. Work. What's for dinner. Why there are no flying cars or hoverboards yet. Where are all the famous people. Where are all the people with super powers (including mutants). How much longer until we get warp speed and the Vulcans contact us. Why can't I be a model with an Abercrombie body (still have the teenage longing for physical perfection).

Not sure that list is any less creepy.
On a typical Friday night I am
On one of these stupid websites chatting with people while doing work. Lame answer? Hence the profile so I can meet you and have something else to do!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have a profile on this site.
You should message me if
You want to chat aimlessly while I'm doing work, or you know where the famous people are. Or you are a famous person! Or you have other suggestions as to fun activities.

I DO NOT DRINK COFFEE so don't suggest that. If you do, I'll assume you haven't read this and will be very disappointed.

Additionally, if you ever use the word "gurl" or if you have multiple photographs of yourself and alcohol on your Facebook profile (excepting weddings, graduation celebrations, family dinners, religious holiday gatherings, or similar special events), then we likely will not be a match.

I'm going to go watch my cartoons now.
