My self-summary
This space intentional left blank until I come up with something sufficiently awesome. Preferably this will make it perfectly clear that I am in fact cooler than a nuclear powered air conditioner stationed in the middle of the January...during the ice age. At the same time it will also show how completely humble I am - really ;)

Actually the above is a lie, at no point ever am I going to remember to fill this in. So just go ahead and assume I wrote something clever, it's ok - I won't tell anyone ... it'll just between you me and the internets.
What I’m doing with my life
I work a small web firm as a web developer, where I steadfastly pretend on a daily basis to have some clue what I'm doing. Luckily I seem to have convinced all the crazy folk that this is true, so let's not tell them I said that shall we?
I’m really good at
Supposedly I'm pretty good at writing computer programs, math, being sarcastic, making folks laugh, and finding new ways to look at different things.
The first things people usually notice about me
As stupid as it sounds, I actually have no idea about this one. I probably never will know this one either, as (1) If whatever it is happens to be enough to scare people away, I generally won't care enough about those people to find out why. (2) It would never actually occur to be to ask anyone who sticks around. If I had to take a guess, then either people tend to think I am shy or eccentric at first - depends on my mood when I meet them.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Assuming we aren't discussing technical manuals and other junk meant to make me appear more useful, my favourite books are: The Complete Novels of Sherlock Holmes (yes I am fully aware that this is more than one book),I-Robot (actually anything by Asimov), The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, The Diamond Age, and The Gods Themselves.

Movies: Not sure, 12 Monkeys is high on the list, so is 300, I don't really have a favourite movie I suppose.

Music: [pink floyd] [metallica] [blind guardian] that johnathan coultron guys has some good stuff, [ramsteinn], hendrix, rolling stones, pearl jam, eric clapton, paco de lucia (on occasion)

Food: It goes in me. I eat it. I am happy...unless it kills me, then I'm not. (on the other hand, if it kills me, I can't be said to be unhappy either, so it's all kind of win win). Except hot peppers - hot peppers do not go in me unless by force. Lots of force.
Six things I could never do without
1. My computer, without which I'd have to find some other way of making money and let's face it there aren't too many money making schemes that I'm incredibly good at that don't involve it.
2. Books of some sort. I like to read, especially science fiction and non-fiction.
3. Methods of Procrastination - otherwise I'd have to you know, actually do the things I'm supposed to when I don't wanna. Guess why my profile is being updated today :)
4. It would be hard to do without this number. Without it I have no idea what comes between 3 and 5 - could you imagine the chaos! The confusion! Tyranny even?
5. Food. Yes, this is kinda a cheat, but I've recently discovered I also like making it - some time around the time I became too cheap to continually order pizza and proclaim it dinner on a regular basis. Anyone who has ideas on new stuff I can try to make feel free to share - my smoke alarm needs more excercise :)
6. There is no number 6 - whatever you math teachers taught you regarding this number was just a big conspiracy to frighten you into learning addition. Trust me on this one.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Mostly about whatever new idea has come to mind recently. (Today's challenge is of course to find someone who isn't thinking about whatever new idea they have - good luck! There is a gold star and a spot on the longitudially impaired bus for you should you succeed).

In actuality I tend to spend a lot of time coming thinking about work, new stuff to learn, crazy ideas regarding internets, and the rest of time I spend lost in some strange happy place in my head. At least I think it's happy. That is what the voices tell me. (kidding - I don't hear voices or anything bizzare like that - I just see words flash up on the screen like on of karaoke machines - completely different I assure you).
On a typical Friday night I am
Mostly on Friday nights I go to the Climbing Gym, where I repeatable make attempt to defeat gravity ... unfortuantely gravity being the heartless wench she is never even remotely lets me win) and then out with some friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Admitting private things on the internet seems like a bad idea. However having all these boxes filled in so that the shiny percentage number goes up - now that's a good idea...ok a decent idea...or a sign that I've become obsessed with odd number based scoring systems and should be committed. If that's the case I want the room with the extra thick padding please. (And a stylish white jacket - don't want the other patients laughing at me).

Actually come to think of it, a nice padded room would be really cool. That's it - the most private thing I'm willing to admit here is that I wish I spent more time in padded rooms.
You should message me if
I'm mostly looking for folks to talk too - no I'm not some lonly fellow with no friends or anything (why...why won't anyone love me??? Sniff...hold me) If you qualify as new and interesting and I haven't messaged you already, feel free to inform me of my oversight. (At which point I will clearly admit I was going to message you, I just hadn't gotten around to it yet :D )
