Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
So I was on the bus earlier today, and I was sitting there minding
my own business when a shortish sort of fellow got on. He had his
orca card in a little ID thingus attached to his belt, and it
wasn't quite high enough for the card reader on the bus to pick it
up. So this little man starts trying to jump up and press his card
up towards the reader, and of course that doesn't work right away.
So his attempts get slightly more frantic and he starts jumping
higher and pretty soon there's a little man effectively trying to
hump the card reader up at the front of the bus. It was pretty
amusing I thought. Personally I felt that the least he could have
done was buy the bus flowers first, but what do I know.
I see people do a lot of strange things in my travels around the
city. I should probably starts making videos of them now that I
think about it. And not videos on my phone either. I want something
like a super-8 camera, something that really announces to the world
that yes, I'm taking a home movie of the guy who's trying to make
love to the bus. Actually that's not a bad idea, a normal digital
camera that was in the same housing as a super-8 camera would be
pretty cool. Oh what am I talking about, someone probable already
makes that exact thing.
Okay, well that's my self-summary for the time being. I hope you
like it. If not, well, I'm sorry.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Hmm, well I make an honest effort to make the world a little bit
better place every day. That probably brought on an eye-roll in
most of you, but it's true. I have a few means of doing so, but I
don't think I'll divulge those right now.
In a more day to day sense I have a somewhat unusual job that
sometimes keeps me pretty busy. Then again there are plenty of
times when it doesn't keep me busy at all. It's kind of hard to
predict. Between that and working on my house I'm rarely at a loss
for ways to fill the time though, so there you go.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Oh, I'm pretty good at a lot of things, but it seems kind of
dickish to say that out loud. Honestly my outlook has always been
that if another human being did it then there's no reason I can't
figure it out, and for the most part that seems to work. Okay,
admittedly there were a few spectacular failures in there, but the
statute of limitations has run out on most of them so I'm not going
to let anything hold me back from here on out.

I get told that I have nice eyelashes a lot, but you'd have to get
right up in my face to see them. If someone I didn't know got that
close to me I'd probably feel kind of uncomfortable. You'll have to
take my word for it for the time being I guess.
Actually it's been quite a while now since anyone mentioned my
eyelashes. Maybe with my advancing years my eyelashes have lost
some of their appeal. Well, the rest of me has probably been losing
appeal at the same time, so there's no reason the eyelashes should
have to shoulder all of the burden.

My favorite movie generally speaking is His Girl Friday. One nice
thing about that one is it's public domain, so you can download the
whole thing for free, and it's legal.
Charade is another good movie, also starring Cary Grant. I seem to
have a Cary Grant theme going here. If you've never seen it I'd
recommend it. It's on Netflix, and since it's one of maybe four
non-shitty movies in their whole selection it shouldn't be too hard
to find. At least that was the case back before my tv broke. It's
been quite a while now since I had access to Netflix come to think
of it. I was going to go get a new tv, but I never really got
around to it.
Oh, and speaking of movies, My Man Godfrey is another good one.
Cary Grant isn't in that one, but there are bunch of people who
probably met Cary Grant at some point along the line, so there you

Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Well if I remember correctly suffering is caused by desire. That
being the case I try not to get too hung up on things. I am pretty
fond of my cats though, and I like my house. I suppose I'd miss the
house and the cats, but aside from that I'm good.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.

Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Well I live on the Hill, so you'd think I'd be out "tearing it up"
as they say, you know, with the cool kids. Honestly though I'm kind
of low key most Fridays. Saturdays too come to think of it. Really
any day that ends in a Y. I'm usually content just to hang out
around the house and visit with the animals. Upon further
reflection it occurs to me that I'm probably kind of boring in a
lot of ways. Well, make of that what you will.

You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Do you know deep down that you're really smart, but you want to
crawl under something and die if anyone actually points it out? Do
you ever feel like you don't quite fit in, but you keep trying your
best anyway? Have you ever identified with Charlie Brown's
Christmas Tree? If any of those statements resonate with you then
maybe we ought to talk. I hope I don't sound too angst-filled, I'm
really normally not. It's just how I was feeling right this
P.S., you probably ought to message me if you have any interest at
all in talking to me. I don't mean to sound grumpy, just hear me
out for a second. I've never been one to send a message to everyone
woman on here like I was getting paid by the word or something.
Every once in a while I'd see someone really appealing, and our
little score thingy is up in the mid 90%'s, so I say "okay, I'll
write to her". So I write out a real message, not just "Hi, show me
boobies" or something silly like that, but you know, a nice polite
hello sort of thing.
Well after making the effort to send a worthwhile message that some
thought went into I hardly ever heard back from anyone. It was kind
of disheartening, and after a while I decided I had to stop doing
it. Anyhow my point with all this is that if you think we might get
along and you'd like to talk please just write and let me know. I
promise I'll write back and we'll have a nice time talking at the
very least, but after so many discouraging experiences I can assure
you that there's no chance I'm going first. Hopefully that's not a
problem for anyone. Thanks!
