My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I was born in Michigan. A lot of things have happened since then.

Objectively, I'm smart. I have been a member of Mensa but it didn't really do much for me. I have a great memory for useless things.

Subjectively, I'm funny and kind and polite and easy going and a pretty good cook. I can offer no proof for these things in this format, so you'll have to take my word for it until we meet.

I have many interests that make me unique among 40-something males. They are more generally associated with 80-something women. For example, I am an avid player of contract bridge. I am a season-ticket holder to the Lyric Opera for six or seven years now. And sometimes I leave my keys in the front door and don't find them until the next morning.

I like to learn new things. Most times this means all-out learning of something for a period of time before I find my next obsession. Past obsessions include (but are not limited to): Fountain pens, chess, tequila, darts, wilderness survival, barbecue.

What I may lack in pulchritude I more than make up for in charisma.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Have you ever seen the show How It's Made? That's kinda what I do for a living. I have seen everything from dog food to cars to Pop Tarts being made! (First date pro-tip: Ask me how the Pop-Tart frosting is applied. The answer may surprise you.)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
folding dollar bills into elephants.

I'm less good at the vice versa.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That I have a nose. It's subliminal, but people notice it right away. If I didn't have a nose, they'd know that they noticed the non-existent nose, but since I do have a nose they know not that they notice the nose.

My favorite cheeses are Manchego and Juustoleipa (Finnish bread cheese).

Go ahead and give me another category and we'll see what I come up with!
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My iPad, a Coke Zero, Roasted meats, The Internet, my pets, a good chef's knife.

Of course I COULD live without any of those things.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
who I'm going to take with me to Fhlosten Paradise if I win Gemini Croquette contest.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
playing bridge. Yes, contract bridge. Yes, the card game that your grandmother played. It's great.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Sometimes I want to move to rural Vermont and live in a Yurt. I'll settle for a cabin in the woods nearby. I will practice my bushcraft skills but then sleep in a comfortable bed. And then come back to the city where there's, you know, stuff to do. Plus I don't think they've perfected bushcraft internet yet.
