Hmm, my friends said my profile sucked, or at least made me seem weird. I prefer the term "unique." In my defense, when the zombies come, I'll have my pick of the ladies :-p I've done Match before and had a pretty good experience with it (I wasn't killed and harvested for body parts), so I'm here to try it again. This is my 12th year out here. I'm originally from South Carolina. No, I don't have the accent anymore (only on rare occasions). I'm a HUGE dork,but I won't embarrass you in front of your friends...much.
Yes, we all like puppies, cookies, walks on the beach, rainbows, etc... It's too bad I can't make a kick-ass PowerPoint presentation about myself. You'd be impressed. Since Match won't allow that, I guess I'll have to write something without all those fancy animating slides (just kidding, I hate PowerPoint, but I'd still rock it).
I play beach volleyball a few times a week and do tournaments when I can. I feel I started too late, as everyone out here has their kids playing by the time they're 3. C'est la vie! I run a few times a week too, so if you're into running, that's even better. In the winter, I snowboard when I get time. I enjoy the local mountains (yeah, it's the LA crowd, eww) and Mammoth. In general, I'm a fan of most outdoor activities. Don't get me wrong, I'lll veg out every rare once and a while and certainly don't feel ashamed about it. If you enjoy the outdoors, gold star for you.
My humor is a bit morbid and dry. I'm going to use the term someone mentioned to me: Gallows humor. I like it. I often poke fun of myself, so feel free to join in, but don't be too rough :-P Sick jokes? Count me in. Zombie escape plans? Check.
I'm a huge animal lover (except for horses...one bit me as a kid). I don't mind if you're a vegetarian/vegan, as long as I can eat some meat when I want (not that it's a lot). I have two cats, Oreo and Mochi, so if you're allergic to cats, well, it probably won't work out as they can sense people that are allergic and will hunt you down (seriously).
I went to high school in Tokyo, so I'd like to return there someday for a long vacation (I could do some damage in Akihabara now). I haven't had a really long vacation in the longest time, so hopefully soon I can do some more traveling with a partner. My list of favorite places I'd like to visit someday: Moscow, London, any place in Africa where a bug won't lay it's brood in my arm while I sleep, and China.
I won't say I'm a food connoisseur, because that would be such a lie. I tend to like simple foods, but that doesn't mean you can't have your Oysters Rockefeller or whatever. Just hand me the mac and cheese. Just kidding (unless it's good mac and cheese). My favorite restaurant is The Curry House (yeah, go ahead, laugh). Love that place. Nom Nom Nom.
I'm looking for someone that either has a dorky side or can tolerate it. She should be confident about herself, who she is, how she looks, etc... Someone who doesn't take life too seriously. I tend to like life's simple pleasures, but I don't mind dressing up once and a while. I am not a big bar/club person, so if that's your thing, I probably won't be a good match. I like doing new things, so if you can teach me something new, great, if not, we can both learn something new. I'm seeking someone to complement me. I don't want a girl clone of me (even though that would be sheer awesomeness), but it would be nice to share some common interests.
TV (don't watch much, but when I do):
Arrested Development (Fave)
* not Walking Dead, because the characters annoy me (less talking, more brain munching/bashing)
my Roombas, Red Leader and Mr. Clean (a must for pet owners)
Kindle Fire (mainly sci-fi books on it)
those little hand wipes you get at restaurants.
kickball (much harder than I remember)
