My self-summary
I am a philosopher by training, and a former professional driver. Now, due to unforseen circumstances, I am experiencing some upheaval in my life. I am a Catholic Christian who tries to live my faith, but often fail. I am a fiscal and social conservative who has a sense of the need for proper social services to help people whan they can no longer help themselves. I am someone who is passionate about those things I believe in. I try to function along logical lines, but I also recognise the limits of that same logic. I enjoy a good argument or debate - and if you want to take me on, you better be prepared for an intellectual street fight. I have a sarcastic, borderline caustic sense of humour. And I am always ready to go to the aid of a friend or someone in need - I don't like bullies of any sort, whether in the schoolyard, on the street, or running their country into the ground, while torturing their people and threatening to develop wmds. Guess where I stand on the invasion of Iraq, as well as on Canada expanding its role in Afghanistan. I realise this is rather poorly put together - but then again, they don't give style points here, do they?

I am thoughtful, humourous, and a defender
The first things people usually notice about me
My size - when one is 6'4" and 300+ lbs, you stand out. Or it could be my pretty easygoing demeanour. Or my red hair. I would suppose it depends on who your perspective.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
BOOKS: Lord of the Rings trilogy, Chronicles of Narnia, Harry Potter, CS Lewis' Space Trilogy, Michael Pirsig's "Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance", Tom Clancy "Jack Ryan" novels, a lot of non-fiction, Harry Turtledove's alternate history work, Eric Flint's 1632 series... MOVIES:LotR, Star Wars series, We Were Soldiers, The Passion, Shrek, Batman Begins TV: Corner Gas, Justice League Unlimited, House, Grey's Anatomy, Numbers, Doctor Who MUSIC: Bruce Cockburn, Sarah Harmer, OMD, Pet Shop Boys, Kathleen Edwards, Johnny Cash, Rich Mullins, Amy Grant, U2 FOOD: various, but Subway, Dominoes, and McDonalds come to mind, not to mention that place which is so close to my heart - Tim Horton's - great coffee and sandwiches
The six things I could never do without
1. My Bible 2. Music - especially the artists mentioned above. 3. Books 4. Jeans and button-up shirts 5. pen and paper 6. Some source of news 7. The will to ignore illogical and arbitrary rules with the simple object of annoying whoever came up with it.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
-screwy things in this world, like:

-the crooked Martin Liberal government

-lefty Democrats without a sense of humour (think about it - I am a Canadian conservative, which puts me to the left of a significant number of Democrats on various issues, especially to do with healthcare, welfare, gun laws... - to be considered a member of the loony American left, by my standards, you would have to think Howard Dean was some kind of right-wing nut)

-Quebec separatists

-Ontarians who repeatedly vote for the crooked Liberals

-the French government under Jacques Chirac

-the Ottawa Renegades moving into first place in the CFL east{!?}(well, that situation may be on the verge of resolving itself)

-what I would do to try to fix those screwy things

-life - its meaning and purpose, and how best to live it

-writing ideas, cultivating the seeds of stories

-where my life is going

-why some on the extreme left have no sense of humour, or at least no capacity to laugh at themselves - a lot of us on the right have fun with the latest Bush malapropism, or will wax sarcastic at mistakes made by our side (it seemed like a good idea at the time...), so why not LIGHTEN UP - maybe if we sit down for a laugh or a chat, we might learn from each other
On a typical Friday night I am
-not doing a lot - dozing on the couch, watching TV or a movie, reading, or writing
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
-while I like to think of myself as a grizzly bear, my friends and family, especially my nieces and nephews, see me as a teddy bear, along the lines of Paddington or the Bear in the Big Blue House. Oh, and I like to watch "Ed the Sock" on Friday nights - he's lewd and crude, but rather funny.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 28–72
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For new friends
You should message me if
...you have been intrigued by something you've seen here, and are looking for someone who doesn't necessarily fit into the more conventional male stereotypes.

-You enjoy using your mind, you have a sense of humour, and you are passionate about what you believe - or if you have found anything else interesting here, I suppose.

-write if you disagree, and want to engage in a discussion of why I am wrong - politics are no fun if you don't talk about them from time to time

-write if you are Canadian, eh

And don't write if:

-you don't want to - last time I checked, Canada was a free country...
