My self-summary
I’m not one for being self descriptive in a text box. I'm far more for conveying with action what can be conveyed in words. I go from being exceptionally geeky to exceptionally socially adjusted, I’m very outgoing, always willing to strike up a conversation with anyone, frequently the one to get the room laughing.

Let’s see, interests, wrenching on cars, camping, fishing (I prefer catching, but who doesn't) going places I’ve never gone before, taking the dog out.

Fun facts: I'm pretty strong, I pick people up when I’m drunk, I make fondue better than melting pot does. I built a car that gets 60mpg - and then I built a race car from bare metal.

I am Sarcastic, Charismatic, and Enthralling
What I’m doing with my life
I can safely say that I’m gainfully employed at a fantastic job, have my own car and do not live in my parent’s basement. I'm going places in life and want someone who's doing the same.
I’m really good at
Making people laugh, cooking (not to be confused with baking), blowing awkward silence away. I'm not afraid to take a giant leap to get something done that needs to be done (or fixed) that I know very little about. People tell me i'm good at photography - i'm not as confident in that but I certainly enjoy it. Find my flickr and decide for yourself (hint: it's tongboy.)
The first things people usually notice about me
You'll probably ask me "aren't you cold?" and I'll almost always answer "no, it's a beautiful day out, why would I be cold?" as I stand in a torrential downpour wearing a tshirt and shorts.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Love sushi & wine tasting. The movies run the gamut from touching and thought provoking to mindless violence.

Music encompasses just about everything, I’ll shy away from country usually. If "Please do persist girl, it's time we met and made a mess." rings a bell, you should message me. "Total Eclipse of The Heart" is one of my go-to karaoke songs - that should speak to my range of music preference.

I adore cooking as much as I do finding a new place out and always enjoy the challenge of a very mismatched ingredients list to turn into a fantastic meal (be it the bare remnants of a kitchen in need of a shopping trip or a semi forced opportunity to try new food pairings/combinations.)
Six things I could never do without
The obnoxiously cute dog, friends, diet soda, my camera, cherry chapstick, witty tshirts.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The other day I was listening to a rendition of Ayo Technology and realized that I'm frequently tired of technology. Which is mundanely ironic as I work in the tech field and i'm typing this into a box on a computer. It's also not entirely true - I only dislike technology when it removes human interaction from the mix too much - a conversation with hand gestures and facial expressions is much more engrossing than one over an IM window. Most interaction between people is improved by vicinity and technology frequently impairs that.

(Argue with me over my modern colloquial usage of "technology" in the above paragraph instead of the Oxford definition - it'll be fun!)
On a typical Friday night I am
Everyone says they don't have a typical Friday night around here. Well I wouldn't want to break that mold... The only thing I can say that is typical is that i'm usually not working too late. Happy hour and a movie, cooking dinner and board/card games with friends, trying a new restaurant out, a project around the house, under the hood of a car, who knows.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I move my income level around on here on occasion - let's call it a societal requirements test. Yes I make money, no it isn't the most important thing I do.
You should message me if
I have a bit of a weakness for smart girls and glasses (bad eyes love company?) So if you fit that combination... Or if you're a composites or aerodynamics engineer and want to lend a hand with my race car's body re-design.
The two of us
