I can't detail my life story in 120 words so I won't give it any
time. I'm keen on languages-I speak three myself and can converse
passibly on two others. I'm good with my hands, I can master most
trades quickly. I'm a wee bit of a book worm, but I'm keen on the
Cine and theatre as well. The bar scene bores me, so stool warmers
should steer clear. The great outdoors are great under the right
circumstances, but hanging out in the city watching humanity has
its good points. I'm well traveled and very cosmopolitian in my
outlook. When the World Cup is on, make yourself scarce since I'll
be off in another world:). Same goes for any Gaelic football league
games. You'll find I'm very loyal, very honest and very considerate
of others. If you E-mail me to say I'm uglier than home made sin,
I'll at least answer back politely:) And God forbid that you should
look or act like something from MTV or the Soaps.
I'll admit a smile and an honest word will get you farther than an
impressive physique. I'm a Catholic but I'm not a fanatic about it
and I'm very tolerant of others in this regard. Race is
unimportant. What I do expect is honesty loyalty and consideration.
And if you're one of these worthless persons who has several
expensive hobbies and no character or virtues to your personality,
then keep browsing. There's a sucker born every minute and I'm sure
you'll be lucky:). I enjoy the company of females who can stand on
thier on two feet and are not looking to be "rescued". Been there,
done that. Plus points if you own your own power tools:)And if you
have to be insane, then please be so in a charming manner.
I am Loyal, Demented, and Honest and a certain love of
In my own country, I am in a far off land.....
I am strong, but with no force or power......
I win all and yet remain a loser.
At break of day, I say Good Night......
And when I lay down, I have a great fear of falling.........
What I’m doing with my life
Getting rehumanized after 8 years of government service. Getting
re-educated, rediscovering myself. I run my own business now-if you
can't find a job, then make one. Getting ready to re-plant my
vegetable garden. OKCupid elected me a Moderator-I think this may
be a mistake as I left the seminary for a good reason long
I’m really good at
Being on time......Being considerate......Being direct......Not
suffering rudeness or idiots.
The first things people usually notice about me
A very dry sense of humor with a wickedly deadpan delivery.

My wallet, integrity, Radio Eireann, Gaelic League
football, my house keys and my tin opener.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I spend a lot of time thinking about how damn good bok choy with
minced garlic and curry powder stir fried in chili oil really is:).
How much of this 'percentage' silliness has any factual
basis......Career-wise I wonder if I need to hire up someone.
Should I go corporate?I need a large volume printer!!! Is the
Federal Trade Commission as dumb as it acts?
On a typical Friday night I am
At the pub (mainly for the craic) or at home curled up around a
book. Or doing one of my numerous ongoing building projects.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I love the smell of motor oil.....
You should message me if
you feel like it. However, don't message me if you have attitude
with an ethnic group that has been at war for 900 years-better
known as the Irish-in the struggle for freedom and unity. But
please don't try to entertain me with stories from your travel log,
about how you ice skated on East Jabip or how you played Mah-Jong
with a one eyed Englishman in New Orleans and won his dentures in
return........And PULEEZE, post at least one photo of yourself
WITHOUT sunglasses. Don't worry about the crowsfeet, I have the
damn things too. Just be honest about who you are because you'll
find I am very tolerant about those basic human flaws that we are
all subject to.
