I'm lazy and copied this from another site which would be a better way to find me called "OKC"...
Nerdy. Intuitive. Thoughtful. Emotive.
Pretty much sums up my hallmarks. I love food, friends, and the latest gadgetry. A combination of them all is the definition of a recipe for awesome. Being a huge nerd is a pride I take very seriously. I love my Sci Fi movies; good and bad, video game nights at my buddy's house, The Science Channel, Firefly, bacon, random useless trivia, and were-badgers. Not the bad-tempered ones though, they are pointy. I like my nerdy T-shirts with things like Schrödinger's cat and Monty Python. I know what I like and I'm not afraid to embrace my nerd-fury! I am a fan of the quirky, strange, or just flat-out weird JUST to be weird.
However, I'm not your stereotypical nerd basement troll. I enjoy going out and just soaking up the sun in my car, sunroof open, windows down, driving down the interstate with nothing but the wind and my music. If presented with an opportunity to go out, I take it above all else. Hiking, going out with friends, walking around the city, random trip to a park to play some Frisbee golf, or any other outside activities are all awesome. Nothing substitutes good company too. If the company is stimulating and fun, it doesn't matter where I am or what I'm doing. Hell, I'll find some tree to sit under, random park bench in the city, hole in the wall coffee shop or just someone's couch, and sit and talk for hours upon hours and be just as content. I value good conversation and especially love hearing stories of people's lives. I'm a great listener. I also enjoy sitting in public and people watching all the while making snarky comments about random people.
Granted, I tend to hibernate in the winter. I absolutely abhor the cold weather and thrive in the April-September months. Spring is a beautiful time of year and is by far my favorite. I'm really trying to get out more during winter though.
I have an adventurous pallet and enjoy trying new foods. I love to eat and experience foods and enjoy the company of people who can share the same passion for food and complexity of flavors but the simple pleasure it can provide. If someone somewhere calls it food, I'll try it. There is something to be said about sheer joy that can come from food and the kind of connection it can bring with people.
A quirky sense of humor or at least an appreciation for the occasional goofiness is a must. If my pet piggy bank wasn't an indication, I am that guy that has no problem going into the toy section of Target and grabbing a foam sword and going to town a nearby willing participant. Or participating in one (or many!) of the "300 ways to get kicked out of Walmart". Or when being dragged 'girl-shopping' I'll take frilly things off the rack and hold them up in the mirror and ask 'do you think this is my color?'. I am also very sarcastic by nature, and hopefully you are too. I am looking for someone to challenge my wit and keep me on my toes and who doesn't take offense easily and has a good sense of humor. Snappy comebacks are paramount to surviving me and my friends! Bonus points if you think low-brow, grade school, your-mom jokes are entertaining in their own rite.
I also LOVE music and lyrics. I know a lot of people say that, but I live through my music. My Zune is with me -everywhere- I go and it's almost like a soundtrack to my life. My musical tastes are far too wide to list everything, but I have a fondness for John Mayer's lyrics. Everything from Anberlin, Beastie Boys, Dr Dre., Green Day, Mozart, Tiesto, Maroon 5, Seether, Dave Matthews to Frank Sinatra is in my collection. That's just a small sample. I'm trying really hard to like and accept country, but so far I can only tolerate Brad Paisley.
What I’m doing with my life:
I live my day life in a box. Not horribly glamorous or interesting, but it serves its purpose...for now. I am surrounded by good friends which I consider my family. I travel all over the PA, VA, MD, WV area visiting them.
Certainly 2010 was a rough year all around (friends and family as well) and have found myself back in my hometown of Frederick after being gone for nearly a decade. I live with a good friend and most of my contacts that used to live in this area have moved away. I'm looking to establish new contacts and meet new people and maybe someone special along the way.
The first things people usually notice about me:
Extremely sarcastic. Tact is only for those that aren't witty enough to be sarcastic.
Honestly, I think it would be my sense of humor and my rather blunt honesty. And I guess that I have really long eye lashes and green eyes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food:
Book: I don't read enough of them to be fair. The last series I read was Harry Potter. I enjoyed the Anita Blake series as well. I really need to read more, but I just never find the time to sit down and just read. I love audio books though, those I can listen to while going to/from work. Douglas Adams (especially the audiobooks read by him) is awesome.
Movies: Bruce Willis. He's my hero. I have a total man-crush on that guy. Comedies are pretty sure to be hits. Really bad B-movie action flicks as well. And I always get a good laugh at horror movies. They are just so bad and predictable these days. Ooo! Look how gory I can be! BORING!
Music: I covered this. Right now? Emarosa. This will change next week I assure you.
Food: Oh...so many possibilities to limit to just one. However, if I had to chose one thing to glutton myself to death upon it would be sushi...and sangria...with fried calamari...with some sort of chocolate death dessert...
TV: I don't really watch television at all. Haven't in about a decade actually, at least not with any consistency. I tend to get into shows AFTER they are canceled or have run their course. Flight of the Conchords, Scrubs, Firefly, Reaper are all shows that I got into after they were gone. I like random shows on Discovery Channel, History Channel, and Science Channel. Everything else is pretty much crap if you ask me. I stick to movies.
The six things I could never do without:
Bacon. It's the candy of meats!
Ocean breeze every once in a while
My soulmate and best friend to talk to
Laughter and good company
Sun soaked days (and with that; sunscreen)
My friends and family (friends ARE family)
Things on my mind:
Astrology. I find it fascinating to explore the nuances the zodiac, sun and moon signs, and changes of the solstice can influence people and relationships. I take a great interest in someone's sign and I am continually intrigued by just how accurate they can describe a person. I am a Cancer sun, Gemini Moon and for all I've read, it's pretty damn accurate.
There isn't enough space for the rest :P
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Going to dinner is usually the cliche thing to do and I suppose works if its a quiet restaurant but I'd prefer to find a nearby park and chill and talk (in summer of course, winter I'd prefer indoors :) ). Find out what makes each other tick, tell stories, and see if there is intellectual stimulation and if the other person meshes well. If you aren't interesting to talk to, there really isn't a point. In general I'm pretty open to suggestions on activities or where to go. Other things like simply walking around the city; especially historical cities, playing some a leisurely game of frisbee golf (I really don't know why I like it so much...), or finding a nice place to park the car, sit on the hood and watch the stars come out and talk about just how bad *insert random movie title* was.
In short; coffee first for quiet chatting, and go from there.
