My self-summary

I have had the honor of sharing my life and my home with a wonderful woman (with whom I am madly in love) for almost a year now! Thanks OKCupid!

I also have a beard now. And, if properly waxed, I can rock a pretty impressive handlebar mustache. Life is good.

I'm smart, funny, easy-going, and in general a pretty happy person. I love to laugh and have fun and tell stories and make other people laugh. But I've also got a serious side, and could talk for hours about a wide range of topics great and small. Art, literature, philosophy, politics, science, the future, the past, current affairs, whatever. As long as we're not talking about the latest exploits of the Kardashians, I'll have an opinion and something interesting to say. I consider myself to be a good, honest, and honorable man. I'm not religious and I don't believe in God (at least not in any traditional sense), but I've still drawn a lot of my life philosophy from religious sources, including Buddhist teachings on karma and meditation and all that commie/hippie stuff Jesus was always talking about. That being said, I try to be open minded and respectful whenever possible unless faced with inexcusable levels of ignorance or bigotry.

In my spare time, I enjoy pretty much anything outdoors: camping, hiking, fishing, floating, etc. You know those crazy people who live in a shack in the the mountains without electricity or running water? I aspire to be one of them.

Ok, I'm going to stop, because it feels like I'm writing a novel here...
What I’m doing with my life

So I finally took the plunge and started my own business! Ready & Able Senior Services, offering non-medical home care throughout the greater St. Louis area, is officially open for business!
I’m really good at
Listening, making people laugh, taking care of others, communicating openly and honestly, expressing my views/opinions, learning new things, trying new things, being on time, cooking, writing, reading, and not sweating the small stuff.
The first things people usually notice about me
My smile or my laugh. They're both pretty awesome.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Update! I've been on a bit of a series binge recently. Finally got around to Harry Potter and The Dark Tower! I just finished It by Steven King, because 8 DT books wasn't enough King apparently.

The Brothers Karamazov, Anna Karenina, The Stand, City of Thieves, The Lord of the Rings trilogy, The Corrections, The Master and Margarita, A Tale of Two Cities, Watership Down, Matterhorn, Native Son, The Heart is a Lonely Hunter, To Kill a Mockingbird, One Hundred Years of Solitude, the Game of Thrones series, 1984, Animal Farm and many others I'm sure I'm forgetting.

Movies: The Big Lebowski, The Godfather I and II, Fargo, There's Something About Mary, Goodfellas, The Shawshank Redemption, Star Wars, The Princess Bride, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Pulp Fiction, Ghostbusters, Dumb and Dumber, and pretty much anything involving zombies.

TV: Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad, The Sopranos, The Wire, The Simpsons, Futurama, South Park, Survivor, Battlestar Galactica, The Walking Dead, Arrested Development, The Shield, The Big Bang Theory.

Music: Classic rock mostly, with some oldies, pop, and rap thrown in for good measure. Today I had Good Time by Owl City and Carly Rae Jepson stuck in my head, yesterday it was Daydream Believer by The Monkees, and the day before that it was Life Goes On by Tupac. Take from that what you will.

Food: Whatever I'm cooking, because it will be awesome. Although I'm especially proud of my chili, meatballs, pecan-smoked BBQ ribs, and any of my homemade sauces (I can make a tomato sauce so good your Italian grandma will beg me for the recipe, seriously).
The six things I could never do without
Good friends, good food, good stories, laughter, new experiences, and the love of my life.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Anything and everything. I've been told on several occasions that I think too much.
On a typical Friday night I am
Probably relaxing with my lady after a long week.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Whenever I look at a new profile, I look at the books section first. And I may or may not make snap judgements about the kind of person you are based on that information. I apologize in advance.
You should message me if
You're a cool person. And by cool, I mean comfortable standing in your own truth. Did that even mean anything...or did it mean everything?

You laughed at that last bit of cheap philosophy/stoner wisdom. If you thought it was profound, I apologize for making your head hurt.

You have books I can borrow. The answer to your next question is yes.

You have something interesting to say. Anger me. Shock me. Offend me. Just please don't bore me.

You think George R.R. Martin needs to write much, much faster.

You want to get into a circular, pointless debate about deeply held philosophical, spiritual, political, social, cultural, and moral beliefs that ultimately solves nothing.

You want to play RISK. Because it's awesome.

You need tips on beard maintenance.

You need someone to care for an aging relative or know someone looking to purchase a ridiculously expensive purebred Bichon Frise puppy. I can totally hook you up.
