and knocked the side mirror off backing up in an alley. Someone once asked Warren Buffet why he doen't buy expensive close and he replied: "I do buy expensive clothes, they just don't look expensive on me." Hand me a Maserati, and I will drive it like a used Corolla.
Nor is cooking a strong point. I'm happy if you like it but I'd advise a boxout until the pot is in the sink and needs scrubbing. I will be glad to regale you with enlightening conversation while you cook. I do excel at reservations however, all kinds.
Shopping eludes me entirely. Sure I have nice things. But I acquire them commando style: insertion, acquisition, extraction. I subscribe to the axiom that if I want to look nicer, I should skip Nordstroms and go do some sit-ups in my bedroom.
Muriel's Wedding is my favorite movie.
I grew up in a Midwestern college town so football is in my blood. I can't help it. Lots of really intelligent people like football. Really. If
witnessing someone yelling and dancing in front of a TV bothers you, move along.
I don't happen to have a beer belly (really…) but I did spend one year brewing beer competitively. I won 46 ribbons at California competitions including best of show at the California State Fair. And yes I'm a beer snob. And no, this accomplishment is not helping me score beautiful women. And all those years with my trombone never helped out in that department either. I'm hoping the comb-over will.
I travel some, but if I'm not going to be spending half my time hanging out with a glass of good Pinot Noir while on vacation, I'm going to object.
I love music but at this point I need someone like you to help curate my collection and manage all these durn iPods.
I exercise all the time, mainly really hard hikes with lots of elevation. But I also need you to encourage me to do more core body. That's not a lot to ask….
I do love pulling up to a bar, ordering a drink, and having a long conversation. Fancy place or dive, it's all ok by me.
I'm a political junkie but I'm beginning to think they're all on the same team.
Grounded, edgy, but good natured guy here.
I would be overjoyed to find an entertaining companion and lover.
