I try to throw in the occasional head-fake in the direction of Judd Nelson, but I'm not fooling anybody. If you're familiar with the series "Firefly" (the source of my profile name), I'm Wash, the dependable-but-not-battle-hardened, slightly goofy, good guy from that series.
Let's get the deal-breaker out of the way, shall we?
I'm married (to Rockasally on here) and we're polyamorous. I don't cheat, and I don't lie. If you have trouble wrapping your head around that, we're probably not a good match. The bottom line is that we've been married for 14 years, we're crazy-stupid in love with each other, but we don't keep each other on leashes. Well, okay, there WAS this one time that involved a leash, but we were drinking, and…
So... about me. Well, I like old movies, good books, Tim Minchin, girls in stripey socks, the oxford comma, and serendipitous bag fries. I know a little bit about a whole lot of things, and a whole lot about just a few.
There are two quotes that sum up how I try to live my life.
"Shared pain is lessened, shared joy is increased. Thus do we refute entropy." - Spider Robinson
"A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects." - Heinlein
You'll find me often at burlesque events, south city music venues, hanging in The Grove with friends, or working behind the counter at Shameless Grounds, the business I own and operate with Rockasally.
When it comes to matters of the heart, I'm an open book. You can ask me anything - and if you're unsure of anything, or don't understand where I'm coming from, *please do* ask.
For the most part, I am a "take things as they come" kind of guy. That means, if you're just looking for a platonic friend, I'm all good with that. If there is chemistry between us, but no desire for a relationship, I think I'd make a pretty good "friend with benefits". And lastly, if you're looking for a serious, long term, loving relationship, I'm open to that possibility as well.
So there you have the bullet point summary. We can work out the underlying details as we go along. :-)
