Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I was born and raised in Arizona. Ultimately speaking, I'd love to
live there when I retire unless a nicer place comes along in my
travels. So far, there's no place like home.
I just got back from a year in South Korea. When I got back, I
realized just how amazing our dry heat is, whereas South Korea is
so humid in the summer you simply have to live covered in a thin
layer of sweat, and when you take a shower in the morning, your
towel is still wet that evening. Foreign concepts, the both. Also
finally, I didn't understand how much I appreciated our clean air
here in the states when even on a rainy day or a cold wintery
blizzard day, the air over there still smelled like farm fields and
whatever they're pumping into their air. Keep in mind, every city
there is surrounded by farms, and they use the real stuff for their
I went to school at Arizona where I picked up a bachelors and a
masters and then discovered the disconnect between the idealists in
academia and the realists in the outside world. I also found out
that my degrees were immaterial towards finding either a good job
or a richer life. I am now employed by a large organization and
kicking myself for not joining sooner. They pay for my life, unlike
the myriad of jobs and work that preceded in my prior life. The
kicker? I did not need a college degree to get my present position,
and yet I will make more than I ever could with a degree when I
part ways with my current company. Perplexing, indeed...
I love the crossword...and Sudoku...and I always have a project
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Anything and everything that strikes my fancy. and eagerly awaiting
the point in my life called RETIREMENT! 14 more years to go! :P

Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Finding the silver lining and laughing about it.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm attentive, and I listen, and I love a good joke.

Help your potential matches find common interests.
All time favorite list: Watership Down, The Hobbit, Catch-22, The
Education of Little Tree, Calvin & Hobbes, Shel Silverstein,
Movies: anything, though I generally avoid horror.
I am an omnivore. Unless I am what I eat, and since cows are
vegetarians, I am a vegetarian!
I can listen to almost anything, within reason. When it sounds like
a dying cat bemoaning it's dreadful wasted existence while raking
its claws against a chalk board, I generally avoid it.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Everything. I haven't known boredom since the Reagan
Administration. I said I was bored one day around 1987 and they
made me do chores until I wasn't bored any more.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Doing anything but work unless its a project at home!!

I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm deathly ascared of snakes.
And I have a railroad in my living room. When my ship comes in, I
will have my railroad in my railroad room [or railroad building, if
I am so blessed!] and my living room will be my living room. For
now, there is a railroad in my living room, because I otherwise
don't have much use for a living room. No, I don't have a
conductor's hat or an engineer's hat, and no, you can't blow on my
whistle, because I don't have one - and I intend to keep it that
