I currently do policy advocacy on behalf of old gays (and BLTs -
not the sandwich). My job takes me to NYC quite a bit.... but wait,
there's more! I’m probably shooting myself in my foot (okay, it’s
sacrilege), but I don’t like Madonna. I do, however, love lesbian
music (Patty Griffin, Dar Williams, and the old 10,000 Maniacs).
And I think Paul Simon is amazing (the singer, but the Senator
wasn’t so bad either, and he could really wear a bow tie). As for
dancing, I prefer pop to club music. I’m always out-and-about - I
don't like sitting home on my ass - but I’m also not a huge drinker
(I’m a cheap date). I’m a huge fan of Stephen Colbert and the Daily
Show. I also enjoy TV shows from the 50-and-over demographic
(common theme?), like CBS Sunday morning and 60 Minutes. I like
artsy films. I’m also quite active - I swim regularly (the water at
the Y hasn’t killed me - yet - but I often smell like chlorine). I
bike in the summer and I enjoy running throughout the year. I enjoy
architecture and modern design-y stuff... And wait wait (get it?)
I’m a big NPR fan. If you're lucky, I'lll show you my picture with
What I’m doing with my life
Apparently spending too much time on okcupid.
The first things people usually notice about me
I smile a lot, which, I found, is not good if you're prosecuting
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Patty Griffin, Dar Williams, if you catch my drift. Angela's Ashes.
I love pizza. And I love ice cream (all year long - I'll have a
blizzard in a blizzard - see photo). I'll try pretty much anything
if it doesn't have eyes or a head (still attached) or look
The six things I could never do without
On a typical Friday night I am
At dinner, movies, or maybe a club or a shabbat dinner with
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
When I was born, I had a projectile vomit problem. But don't worry,
lucky for you, it's cured!
You should message me if
If you're someone who’s nice to waiters (that’s a good sign), but who’s also sarcastic and enjoys people watching (as a judgment based activity), who follows what’s going on in the world, who is laid back but still likes making plans, and you don’t smoke. You're probably not someone who says he’s smart and attractive in his profile - you just are. You work out. Although avoid the moment where the lifeguard asks you to replace your suit as it’s falling apart (yes.... it happened). And while I’d want you to have a nice six-pack, you're probably someone who doesn’t want to show it to the world.
