“So who is this fellow, and where can I learn more about him?” you think to yourself. Well, think no more! Er… well, wonder no more.
My name is Chris. I am 39. I live in Phoenix, Arizona, where we think winter is something that happens to other people. 78 degrees in December is nice, though 118 in the summer is somewhat less so. I sadly have recently joined the ranks of the unemployed. Hopefully this state of affairs will not last long.
My hobbies include reading (favorite authors are Terry Pratchett and Harry Turtledove, but I also like more mainstream books and, strangely, don’t really care for sci-fi or fantasy novels, despite what some might expect), cooking, playing video games, watching TV, playing about on my computer and writing.
Lately, though, my main passion has become movies. I own hundreds of DVDs, and I’m constantly adding more. My favorites are too long to list, but if you check that page you’ll get the general idea of what I’m into.
I’m an atheist, though this wasn’t always so. Back when I was younger, I was raised Methodist and thought that I believed. Eventually I realized that wasn’t for me, and spent a few years thinking I was Wiccan. Then I took a class in logic and that was the end of that. I drifted to Buddhism for a couple weeks as part of an effort to get down someone’s pants (it didn’t work). Finally I began really examining everything and wound up in my current position.
Politically I’m more socialist than anything, though as we don’t have a viable socialist party in this country, I end up voting Democrat when I can. I’m very pro-choice, anti-death penalty, in favor of single-payer universal health care, pro-union, pro-diplomacy, etc, etc. In some ways my social views are more libertarian than socialist. I am, for example, in favor of legalizing drugs, getting rid of seat-belt and helmet laws for adults, and legalizing prostitution.
Sexually, I go both ways. I’m more into guys for romance, dating, etc, but I enjoy… er… “activities” with both. I’m single and looking, but it would take a very special person indeed who could put up with me long-term. Still, should anyone wanna give it a go, I’m after someone who is smart, cute, skinny as a stick, preferably emo, goth or Asian, younger than 35 and capable of putting up with me long-term.
Despite what many of my misguided friends might think, I am not a furry.
That’s all about me for now. I’m sure I’ll eventually add more to here. Any questions about me?
