J'ohn loves his oreos.

*waves!*

I posted here, once, when I first moved to Toronto, but figured I'd give it another try. Does anyone even pay attention to this community, anymore?

Name: Nick
Age: 31
Gender: Male, I think. Hang on. *checks* Yep, male.
General Location: Downtown Toronto (relatively near The Annex, my favourite part of town)
Occupation: Mature/Returned Student and Part-Time Blockbuster Monkey
Smoker?: Nope. No drugs, either.
Drinker?: I like beer, especially Keith's. Mind you, I'm a Maritimer, so I'm contractually obliged. I might go out for beer MAYBE once a month, if that.
General Style: Total dork. I'm talking sci-fi, comic books, cartoons, bad jokes that even someone's father would groan at.
Likes: As I said, nerdy things, which we'll get to in later questions. But I also take good care of myself. Lost 45 pounds a few years ago and have kept it off through yoga, biking, jogging, etc. Also, I can't wait to get back into some casual video gaming when I get a PS3 for Christmas! Dead Rising 2, here I come!
Dislikes: The smell of smoke (I gag at the mere sniff of pot; nothing against people that do it, I just can't be around it), rude/obnoxious/close minded people, people who don't take accountability (working in customer service, I see this a lot).
Hobbies/Passtimes: I've already stated some. Oh, I also love boardgames. My favourites are Fireball Island, Mwa-ha-ha and Pandemic.
Fave Places to Go or Do/Hang Outs:  James Joyce Pub, The Green Room, skating at the Harbourfront Centre, this great Korean BBQ place in the Annex, book and comic shops, the ROM, Fresh, Bloor Cinema.
Talents: Encyclopedic knowledge of comics (should I be proud or ashamed of that?), climbing the steps of the CN Tower in 21 minutes, writing (got published this year for the first time!).
Fave Foods: Given how many different foods I've tried for the first time in the last few years, I honestly don't know anymore. I do love my protein shakes. Mmm. Now, I'm craving one.
Fave Movies: Shawshank Redemption, What Dreams May Come, Pan's Labyrinth, The Incredibles, Unbreakable, Killer Klowns From Outer Space (oh, that's right)
Fave Books: Simon R. Green's Nightside series, The Year of Living Biblically, Bret Hart's autobiography, World War Z, Watchmen, Superman: Secret Identity
Fave TV Shows: Lost, Flash Forward, Dollhouse, Eureka, Entourage, How I Met Your Mother, Spectacular Spider-Man, the DC Comics cartoons (Batman, Superman, Justice League),
Anything Else? Ideally, I'd like to meet someone to date and it turns into a relationship. That said, I wouldn't mind meeting some new people to meet, hang out with, go for beers or whatever. Just be very aware that I'm really not comfortable around pot, which I know is becoming more and more common in this day and age.

These are slightly older now (taken over the summer or, in the yoga picture, back in January). I'm currently sporting short hair and a goatee, which is my most common look.






(Yes, that's a full back body bend. Took me awhile to accomplish that in yoga.)

I totally love your icon (J'onn + Oreos = <3!!)

I'm a total nerd too. and an encyclapedic knowlage of comicbooks TOTALLY is a talent!!
Weed is good for the soul.
Let's not get into that argument, please. It's a lifestyle choice that I won't do and never will (much like smoking). Seriously, even just catching a small whiff of the smell, I'm gagging.
I catch a whiff of alcohol and I gag.
I agree.
I won't ever do the stuff, and have no repect for anyone who does.
