Are you neat and fun and silly? Do you want to ride bikes, run, play, stay up late talking in dive bars, watch movies, hike, travel? I guess, read on. Dull people, you can too.
I'm Simon. I'm not quite as cool as a cucumber but much cooler than most radishes, and I am/might be your huckleberry. I'm a politics/pop culture wonk, singing/dancing fool, & biophile.
I'm interested in people who care about the health of the world and its people and maybe their own health. I love nerdy, pedantic girls. I know that's a bit general, but I get a somewhat uncomfortable talking about myself so I thought it might be better to let some of my friends fill in a few details:
“Floats like a breeze block, stings like a Sweet Valley High breakup.” –robert mugabe
“His theories are quite sensible” - Charlotte Bronte
"When he sings "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road" at the karaoke bar, I close my eyes and swear I'm in the presence of the real Sir Elton John." - William the Conquerer.
"He'll knit you a sock and make you laugh until it falls right off your foot." - Uncle Sam
“Makes me feel like a natural woman.” - Henry VIII
"An honest, loyal and giant-hearted person, devoted to spreading peace, joy and happiness around the world as casually as one might spread raspberry jam on crumpet." -seabiscuit
"Not only is his carbon footprint less than zero,, his argon footprint is barely visible" -Quetzacoatl
“A pleasant coupling of Wuthering Heights and The Bratz. You should probably just send him a message. ” – Mary Todd Lincoln

That big spoon in Minnesota with the cherry on it.
And as Columbo might say, "just one more thing," I think it's time I learned how to play Pokémon and magic cards. So I'd you know about those and want to teach me, let me know.
