Note: I don't pay for my OKC account: if you "Like" me, clicking the little star is mostly pointless -- just send me a note to say hi!
My pics are recent -- not 20 years & 20 lbs ago.
I'm a dedicated dad to a terrific girl, fatherhood being the most fulfilling experience of my life (so far). I have time and room for you, too.
I value intelligence and curiosity. I have opinions, but I'm more interested in knowing ABOUT stuff – humanities, science, business, culture, arts, politics, law, and language – than I am in expounding my opinion. I'll discuss ANYTHING, but if you sing an endless song of intractable pronouncements on stuff like God, races, gluten, fur coats, vaccinations, fluoride, or flag burning, you MAY be more tiresome than interesting, even if I share your opinion. No one is required to have an opinion on everything.
I cook, and I do it well. Fresh, home made, in season, minimally processed. I don’t live to eat, but cooking is good for my soul and your mouth. Eating well at home with family and friends is just a damn good thing to do.
Piano -- a great love. I play the occasional club or private gig with favored musicians. No rock band in my garage.
I love the outdoors in general, esp. wilderness hiking and distance bicycling.
I'm not especially fond of: unnecessary drama; invented crises; chaotic lifestyle; self-absorption; stupid parenting; habitual impulsiveness; financial irresponsibility; dogma; discourtesy. Just sayin.'
If you have a drink now and then (I certainly do), I hope alcohol makes you even sweeter, more charming and affectionate than you already are, as opposed to, say, an embarrassing, uninhibited nitwit.
I encourage you to read all "our" responses to the OKC questions. I've bypassed many that are just too stupid or too sexually explicit: I don't actually want to answer 134 questions about anal sex publicly & online. If you really need those answers, fear not, for all shall be revealed when we meet on our first date at the brand new SphincterWorld Adult Novelty Super Center & Coffee Bar (formerly, Barnes & Noble) right next door to Wal-Mart.
