My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I retired nine years ago after playing an active part in making the world a better place, mainly trudging around nuclear power plants with a geiger counter looking for illegal environmental contamination.

I also made some common sense investments and now I am enjoying life comfortably.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I have always been and I will probably always be stuck in the 70s to some degree. My life is 99% unstructured and I chase whatever whim strikes me at the moment.

I won't claim I invented the phrase 'wake and bake' but I was certainly an early adoptor. Anyway, while we're here, please take a look to the right there. Where it says, "Drugs? Often"? That's weed only for me. Everything else is a tad too hard on the heart.

Hey, and while we're discussing the spec list, yeah, I am overweight. After my third heart attack, I gained a ton, and only after the fourth did medical technology catch up with my condition. Now I am in a cardio therapy program, and I have dropped 35 pounds since June. On track, baby!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
finding new experiences. Do you like a bit of chaos mixed into your adventure?

Like the movie The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, dropping everything and moving somewhere for a few weeks or a couple months is my idea of fun. Berlin? Stockholm? Wintering in BC out of an RV?
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I do not wear a hairpiece.

I have little tolerance for bullshit. I don't waste a lot of time fretting over politics, and for me, religion is politics.

I would much rather play guitar.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
You can talk me into seeing virtually any live performance. The symphony? Opera? A death metal concert? Yes, to any one.

Music: Everything but rap and xenophobe country. When I play guitar, I have a fairly solid psychobilly sound.

Movies that I can watch repeatedly: Monty Python & the Holy Grail, Amadeus, Excalibur, Blade Runner, Stanley Kubrick's The Shining, Legally Blonde (guilty pleasure). Oh, and Rocky Horror Picture Show, of course.

Books: Imajica - Clive Barker, A Clockwork Orange - Anthony Burgess, Myra Breckinridge - Gore Vidal; everything by Philip K. Dick.

Food: I am a damn fine home-style cook, and I have broad tastes. I could happily cook three meals a day, every day, for somebody for the rest of my life. My favorite adventure is going into an ethnic restaurant and ordering more or less at random. I don't however do stunt foods.

Television: I do not own one, and I doubt I ever will again. I did like Twin Peaks and The Prisoner. Also, I am an occasional viewer of The Colbert Report on Hulu, but the focus of that show makes the jokes somewhat predictable.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My cat, a guitar, an internet connection (search Google for my username Ardiril), warm slippers, and the occasional good cigar.

#6. Singing silly cat songs. For instance,

♫ Cats wear hats but seldom flats,
they think heels are what appeals. ♫

to the tune of 'Both Sides Now'. You've been warned.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
~ How can drummers be such terrible dancers? That's like chemists who can't bake a cake.

~ You can't blame my generation for karaoke.

~ In seven years, Nick Offerman will be hosting Family Feud.

~ "The direct opposite of nihilism is donuts." - a friend's tweet

~ Can you really tell when taffy goes stale?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
wishing I had someone in my life who would like to go to a dance club once in a while. "wubwub"
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Having sex with bondage and leather
is just not my sort of endeavour.
If you ask me to shag
with a whip and a gag,
I'll answer "not now and not ever".

-- stolen shamelessly

Some of my best friends are witches.

I make yummy crabcakes.

I am not a material person, nor am I spiritual and certainly not religious.

Developing sentimentality for mass-produced commercial goods is nearly impossible for me. My most favored possession is my 12-string electric guitar that was custom-built to my specifications. I have shed my personal effects down to fit in a couple boxes and a few suitcases. I like to move around.

I much prefer experiences. Spending a few thousand dollars on a once-in-a-lifetime journey with nothing more to show for it at the end than a few ticket stubs and a stamped passport is worth every penny to me.

My cat prefers porchetta over prosciutto. Can't say I disagree.

I like watching car races. I was born that way.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
... you have an unbounded curiosity.

... you play a musical instrument or sing, or you are in some way creative, whether artistically or intellectually.

... you noticed that my grammar and spelling are impeccable. You also noticed that I do not slavishly subscribe to putting a comma inside double quotes when placing it outside makes more sense. I wrote my own grammar book, you know.

... no one will watch Wheel Of Fortune with you because you often guess the phrase before *any* letters are revealed.

... you would enjoy chasing Renaissance Faires around the world.

... you dropped acid in the 70s (or 80s (or 90s)).

... you will not drink Budweiser under any circumstance short of someone threatening your offspring, and even then, you'd gag.

... you grow occasionally wistful at the long-cherished memory of a chilly Saturday night with a quarter moon and a lukewarm bottle of Boone's Farm. The state of your undergarments at the time shall remain your secret.

... you posted something private in the question above, rather than be a fuddy-duddy stick-in-the-mud. Saying "I'll tell you after we meet" is not coquettish, but merely intellectually lazy.

... your vices are only the tiniest bit beyond your control.

... you don't really give a fuck about any of this cuz you're gonna have me regardless.
