The profile ID is a Buddhist term. The Bodhichitta part, that is. The Jim part comes from my parents. But I digress. I'm not Buddhist, per se (I love cheeseburgers), but the more I read about it, the more I dig the philosophy. I won't spoil the definition; if you're interested, you'll probably look it up anyway. :)
Anyway, the vitals: 5'8, ~168 lbs, negotiable facial hair, if any of that's important to you (currently trying a beard, since I got bored. However, now I'm itchy. Which do you like? I could go either way, really ...) I'm also originally a Masshole, having grown up in Worcester and Boston. Somehow I escaped the accent.
I wish I could say I was over six feet tall and had a full head of hair, but I'm not, and I don't. Genetics are a bitch. I do my best with what I've got, though. Like my calves - if you like strong calves, I may be your guy. Leg calves, for the record. Not baby cows. I have a small apartment and could not possibly keep more than one of those.
I'm a gainfully employed, responsible, and debt-free adult, but I'm also a big kid at heart. I follow current events, pay my bills on time, take care of myself physically, emotionally, and financially - but I love Star Wars and South Park and listening to loud music, too. I also love breakfast burritos. I cannot stress this enough.
I find Bill Murray, the Marx Brothers, Tina Fey, Mitch Hedberg, Eugene Mirman, David Cross, Trey Parker and Matt Stone, Ron Swanson, and Statler and Waldorf hilarious, if that helps you figure out what I think is funny.
I'm very easy going (never thrown a punch in my life) and have no surprises waiting to jump out at some unexpected moment, I promise. I've been divorced ~3 yrs, though. Good terms, no worries - and occasional dog visits, which is nice. :)
I clean up well, but definitely enjoy dressing down on occasion, too.
I try not to take for granted how fortunate I am in my life to have my health, a safe place to live, food on the table, and plenty of toys to keep me entertained.
For the record: I listed ages "25-44" in my "I'm looking for" part of the profile, but I'm iffy about that, at best. Over beers with some friends and coworkers (guys and gals alike), we started talking about what's "appropriate", and they encouraged me to "loosen up" on this. 25 seems a bit young, but ... I don't know. So as not to seem creepy: If you're <30 and interested, it's on you to write to me first. :)
