My self-summary
I am not strong, fit, or agile, but I have certainly been accused of having intelligence, wisdom, and charisma.

I try to be friendly and helpful.

I'm 5'9" and 230 lbs., with bluegrey eyes and brown hair. I wear glasses and I'm white. My half-Cuban ancestry does not enable me to speak Spanish.

I'd like to think I'm a good guy.

LongboardTomboy and I have an apartment of our own now and would love to have visitors.

I'm an atheist. I grew up attending the First Christian Church of Kent (Disciples of Christ). That's a fairly obscure and redundant Protestant denomination, the "individual interpretation" doctrine of which meant I had to take half an hour or more to explain any time someone asked what religion I was. I would think the switch to atheism would shorten this conversation, but no such luck. People want to know, do you believe in faeries? No. Do I believe in Eastern philosophy? No. Do I believe in neopaganism? No. Do I believe in astrology? Oh hell no!

I am an atheist. I do not believe in any form of deliberate self-deception as a path to a better life; even affirmations may well have been entirely discredited by Barbara Ehrenreich or her sources. I do believe in a number of things it's difficult to impossible to see or touch, such as integrity, honesty, community, decency, kindness . . . and love. I like sex plenty, but this does not preclude a belief in love!

I speak English. That's it. Select phrases of Russian, Spanish, and, to my everlasting shame, Klingon, but not enough of any of those to even say I speak them poorly. Phrases only.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm looking for work as a customer service representative until LongboardTomboy gets into and out of grad school and gets settled in her career, at which point I will become a homemaker and pursue my own creative interests.
I’m really good at
Putting my foot in my mouth over and over and over again.
The first things people usually notice about me
A friendliness that tries too hard to put people at their ease and ends up doing the opposite. :(
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
A: Free at Last by Daniel Greenberg, The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay by Michael Chabon, and Black Superheroes, Milestone Comics, and Their Fans by Jeffrey A. Brown.

B: Anything by David Mamet, P.T. Anderson, Wes Anderson (except, of course, The Life Aquatic--what a disappointment!), etc. Dialogue is more important than anything else to me.

C: TMBG, showtunes, folk, pretty girls with guitars. I am, weirdly I admit, not a big fan of live music.

D: Greek, Italian, Baklava.
The six things I could never do without
Books, games, my niece, my nephew, women, attention.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The future.
On a typical Friday night I am
Abandoning the meticulously planned weekend schedule.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I want to play Eldritch Horror with you.
