I'm an ex-standup comic and current computer geek. I think of
myself as easy-going, but I'm afraid the reality is that I'm a
larger version of Barney Fife--highly excitable at times ;-).
This is going to be a work in progress. BTW, I am *very*
of many of the online tests that are modeled after
the Briggs-Meyers tests. If you would like to know more about them,

I am Humorous as hell, skeptical, and Poly
What I’m doing with my life
I was in a rebuilding process and I've found out things about
myself I either never knew before, or never admitted to knowing.
And, most of it's good. Like being poly. While not a viable
lifestyle for everyone, I find it fits me well.
I’m really good at
Most of what I am good at can not be discussed in polite company.
;-) However, if you have a spittoon handy, I will accommodate...I
may not be a gourmet chef, but I have a lot of the science of
cooking down pat.
The first things people usually notice about me
People think I'm a biker. Some people think I have a ponytail. I
have neither a bike nor ponytail, but I once had a pony named Nicky
(Thanks to Steven Wright!)....UPDATE: I now have a ponytail. It's
cheaper than a Harley.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Big on Batman and James Bond. Love comedies, things with Leslie
Nielsen and stuff by the Zucker Bros and Jim Abraham, together or
apart. In fiction, I like a lot of the modern classics, and
counter-culture authors like Charles Bukowski or Somerset Maugham.
Wait, Maugham is not counter-culture. He lived a rich, extravagant
lifestyle. Oh well....
The six things I could never do without
A computer with high-speed internet access
And this lamp...
And this chair...
And this ashtray...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I think a lot about the current state of the United States...how
some people consider the freedom of religion means they can do
anything they want willy-nilly in the name of their god (My god's
name: Marty. He's a Sagittarius that likes candlelit dinners and
walks on the beach). To paraphase George Carlin: Religion is like a
lift in your shoe. If you need it, it makes you stand a little
taller, walk a little straighter. The problem with most religions
is that they want to nail their shoes onto the natives' feet.
On a typical Friday night I am
I no longer work the weekends, so Fridays can have me going out to
dinner with friends, meeting others in a social group I frequent,
or hanging around the ol' homestead.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
HAH! Thought you'd lull me in to a sense of trust, eh?
You should message me if
You want to chat, debate, argue, commiserate, date, perform deviant
rituals, discuss current events, talk about a movie or book, take a
test, or just want to hang out...drop me a line. I do prefer local
UPDATE: Someone who enjoys Indian food or other spicy and/or hot
cuisines. If I have a choice between a new place & one I've
been to, I pick the new place...
