I love cooking and baking. I like to play pool and can even be good at it on occasion. I don't really like most sports but I'll cheer for whatever team my buddies or family want to win.. I do like hockey though (go Caps) because the games are bloody and short. I like to read. I don't I want any kids. Words are my first love. Not religious but I would call myself spiritual in a way. Anyway, whatever your religious/spiritual beliefs, they will not bother me. I might ask lots of questions though. I love games, especially board games and games with large zones to explore, like WoW & Fallout 3. (I don't play WoW at the moment.) I rarely make jewelry, which I never wear, and occasionally like to color.
I am poly. If you're looking to settle down into a monogamous relationship with a girl who wants to marry you and bear your children, please look elsewhere. If you're looking for one night stands, please look elsewhere. I am somewhere between these extremes. If you are curious, please feel free to ask.
I'm good at writing. Putting words together in pleasing patterns. I love words.
Things I am NOT good at:
Verbal communication. I can express myself well through text but when it comes to speaking I am all umms and pauses. I wouldn't trade my writing talent for a golden tongue though.
Console video games - I love them, but am not very good at them. I blame controller sizes vs. my small hands, which I know doesn't even apply to some of the newer consoles haha.
Dealing with confrontation. I am very non-confrontational normally. That gets me in trouble sometimes, too.
Books: The Discworld series and some other Pratchett works, ASOIAF, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy series, the Chronicles of Narnia, His Dark Materials, E. A. Poe (more the stories than the poems,) Wicked, Robert Heinlein, Star Wars novels (mostly the older ones,) 1984, The Monkey Wrench Gang, the Barrytown trilogy, the Sprawl trilogy... I suppose I could go on all day. Oh and books about random stuff like the ghosts of Ireland or dinosaurs or what-have-you.
Movies: Snatch, Natural Born Killers, the original Star Wars Trilogy, the Alien series, Fight Club, Tarantino films, RHPS, Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Run Lola Run, But I'm a Cheerleader, Saved!, Empire Records, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, 10 Things I Hate About You, Monty Python, zombie movies, The Princess Bride, Pan's Labyrinth, Digby Goes Down, Labyrinth, SLC Punk, Wild Zero, Office Space, Anchorman, 7even, Reefer Madness, The Avengers, 12 Angry Men, Mr. Smith Goes to Washington, Enemy at the Gates, Idiocracy, Kelly's Heroes...
I like watching terrible movies and making fun of them. I love watching action movies, I love hiding my face in someone's shoulder while watching horror movies, I dislike most romance and romantic comedies, and I love suspense and thriller movies. Drama I can take or leave depending on subject matter. Non-romantic comedy movies are hit or miss for me.
Shows: Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad, Once Upon A Time, Archer, Futurama, The Simpsons, Eureka, Fringe, Doctor Who, Raising Hope, The Walking Dead (such a train wreck, just can't look away,) Orange Is the New Black, Sons of Anarchy, Merlin, The Wire, Law & Order, and of course plenty of others.
Music: I listen to a lot of different stuff; just ask, I guess. A sample of what has played from my random cycle of music in the last hour to follow shortly.
Food: I'm a picky eater. That's not to say I won't try anything once, provided it's not dog meat or something. I especially have a thing about textures and about knowing what is in the food I'm eating. I don't like bacon; apparently this is completely insane to some people. My favorite comfort meal is tomato soup and a grilled cheese sandwich.
I find myself counting when I read this section on other people's profiles to make sure they can count to six.
Fair warning, I auto-delete messages that say boring stuff like "Hi, how are you?" How about responding to something in my profile? Let me know what made you want to talk to me so we have a good starting point. I try to do the same when I message people. I don't think it's asking too much.
