I shall begin by stating that I am recently returned to Alabama after 13 years. I find it interesting how much has changed in that time. The people are much the same, though a bit less hospitable. I see the rushed lifestyle of the northeast invading my quiet southern homeland, and am not thoroughly pleased by it. Or perhaps I have changed during my absence. Either way, nothing lasts forever.
Now a bit about my personal style! I am a nerd that enjoys board games, science fiction, reading, computers, and the occasional video game. I love cinema, especially a good twisty flick with a joyous amount of mind-bending: think Gattaca, The Fountain, American Psycho, Black Swan, The Prestige, or American Beauty. As far as books go I enjoy the likes of H.P. Lovecraft, Anne Rice, Stephen Baxter, Isaac Asimov, Michio Kaku, Carl Sagan, and Richard Dawkins. For my listening pleasure I enjoy everything from Viking Metal (Amon Amarth) to Classical (Tchaikovsky).
Things that fill me with joy! I enjoy taking a telescope and blanket out to a big, empty, dark field and gazing at the stars for hours. A nice cuddle whilst sipping wine and watching a film is pleasing to me. I prefer tea to coffee, and I don't really drink soda. I enjoy exercise, as I find myself making the attempt to get back into fighting shape. I always smile and chuckle when I see my moustache styled. Dive bars are one of the most hilarious and entertaining places one can visit, though it must contain a pool table and Yuengling at a minimum. On that note I sing some mean karaoke. I rather enjoy dressing like a dapper gentleman; and have been known to dance around in my Calvin Klein bikini briefs (the "strategically impressive" underpants), listening to "Thrift Shop" whilst selecting an outfit.
My observations on relationships! I have long considered myself a hopeless romantic, and I still carry a flicker of hope with me that someone ultimately special would find their way into my life. However during my voyage throughout this life I have grown a bit jaded and cynical towards previously held conceptions of reality. I still hope that my positive assertions will be proven true one day, yet have quit holding my breath for it. That being said I have been purposely single for the past 10 months, due to not wanting to take a journey down another path swarming with bullsh*tand lies.
Quirks and strangeness! I am rather direct and more honest than most people, though I wield the art of tact mightily when it suits me. I can usually get a pretty good read on people, and should trust my instincts more. I would fill my house with animals if I could. I tend to over-think situations.
Pet peeves! Rudeness, willful ignorance, smacking, open mouth chewing, "yolo", "swag", liars, saggy pants, mistreatment of animals.
