Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I don't have the type of ego that allows me to tell you why I'm
such a good catch. In fact, I consider myself quite average. Not
that I spend my time eating unflavored gelatin
my Saturdays re-organizing my sock drawer
, but that I just don't
give notice to self promotion well. I do believe I am above average
in intelligence, which is a tool I use to accomplish things. I
believe that I am not irritating to the eyes and even smell good
most of the time. I tend to use sarcasm and humor as my weapons of
choice. I was a family man for 15 yrs and I have 2 daughters, 14
& 12 as of this date, that I love very much.
So OKC wants me to expand my profile out to 1000 words. I have to
believe I'm close, but I think they need to put a word counter up
here too. My hovercraft is full of eels.
I am cognitive, warm, and have a pulse
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
After a 15 yrs marriage, my wife thought it best if we divorce. A
favor in disguise as it turns out, otherwise I would still be
trying to turn a "sows ears into a silk purse". She apparently has
Asperger's Syndrome, an affliction that prevents affect, empathy
and self expression. A condition I didn't recognize until recently,
the problem with being blindly committed to a relationship.
So, I am out to make up for a bit of lost time in both my personal
and professional life. I am a very passionate person and want to
apply that value in very positive ways through empathy and
**The following has been added to fill out OKC request for 1000
words**. I'm not trying to bore you with the rest of this post. I
thought I had said all I wanted to say before this edit. OKC wants
me to expand out to one thousand words to be 95% complete. Good to
know that all I have to do is put down some meaningless blather and
I'll be a B+. The problem with this system is, once you achieve
100%, you need not work to improve. I would have no problem with
modifying my profile as I grow, as I evolve, as I mature, but I
don't think I should bore people with rants or BS to fill out some
requirement arbitrarily. It's hard enough to keep someones
attention to read your profile when they actually want to get to
the pictures immediately anyway.I feel like such a word slut.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I can't comment on this topic directly. I believe I can give you
the "flavor" through philosophy though. I can do and have done many
things well, not perfectly but well. I believe no task it too great
if the task is broken down and analyzed correctly, allowing room
for spontaneous discovery, the application of said discovery and
just plain luck. Besides that, I use to be good at chasing and
wrestling a greased pig. There had really ought to be a name for
that. Please inform me if you know of it.
**UPDATE** I have received many email notifications the the name of
this sport is "Pig Wrasslin'." I have, unfortunately just ruined
one of the best icebreakers I have ever programmed in to a profile.
No matter, you all just want to look at the pics anyway to see if
there is any reason to go forward. That being said, I have recently
changed my profile pic so you might recognize me if you are at a
music venue (a cool music venue) and you see me doing some photos.

Too many times have I experienced a comment about how I have worded
something. Either it is criticized for being too "high brow" or
torn down because the other believes they are a much better
wordsmith. I surrender to both. I word things the way I do to bring
about a concept of what I need to express in as few of words as
possible. If the meaning escapes you, my apologies. It is just a
dating site after all. If my grammar offends you, please go pound
sand in your ass. Minimalistic writing should be expected on these
sites. I certainly am ruining the impression that I am a very good
listener by writing these addendum.

I've been known to make my own beer
and take a bit of pride in my ability
to cook. When my kids were little, I use to go to good restaurants
by myself, come home and replicate the dish I just had. I'm not as
well read as I would like to be and I'm not overly wrapped up in
movies as some are. Not that I don't enjoy them, it's more of a
matter of schedule and priorities.
**Geez this idiot is long winded**
I did leave out the element of music. I have no time for anyone who
specifically has a focus on specific genre. I get my music fix by
listing to original music. Diamond in the rough, many times, and a
work in progress at the least. I do photography for the local
original music scene. Contact me and I will give you addresses to
see some of my photos. I'm not as interested in you seeing my
photos for your approval as I am you seeing the passion the artists
are putting in to their performance. That is why I do everything in
ambient light with no flash!!! If you are an artist and you read
this profile, no posing!!! I want candid shots of what you do.
Likewise to the venue, if your lighting sucks, so will the pics.

and ham salad
I could go on for the balance of this 1000 word expansion about ham
salad. It's the perfect food. It is already preserved through the
process of making a ham and gives a lot of margin or creativity.
I'm a fan of chicken salad too and a German buddy of mine made some
fleisch salata, but ham salad is the most stable. Turkey salad is a
possibility but requires smoking to be interesting enough to make a
salad out of it. Beef has many incarnations but evolved into "shit
on a shingle" which I kind of enjoy too. Shrimp salad is great but
requires a knowledge of shrimp to make it right. Let's face it, I'm
in Indiana where the shrimp are small and frozen. I've had a
lobster salad before that I considered a waste of lobster, but some
other fish might have serve the dish better. I love fried bologna.
I think it might be a great salad maker too. Fried bologna stands
on it's own as a great sandwich, if done correctly, and seems
redundant to continue on with the process of making a meat salad
out of it.
Braunschweiger (sp?) is a guilty pleasure of mine as well. I have
met so many people who love it and have a special way to make their
sandwich. Mine is with swiss cheese and a good mustard. Best if
German mustard but Dijon will do. Coarse ground Dijon is better,
but nothing like the mustard I make from scratch. Mine is more like
Wasabi and, yes, I'm a Sushi hound too. I expect Shashimi grade and
you should too. If you are still reading this stuff,
congratulations! You are obviously either really interested or you
do strange things to farm animals.

I spend more time thinking about why I'm thinking about things that
I think about. I would love to give you the inner workings of ME,
but I don't think you should have the unfair advantage since most
of you will not have filled out your profile as in depth as I did
before I had the goal of expansion to 1000 words. Suffice it to
say, I constantly replay what I have said in my mind to figure out
if what I had said could have been taken the wrong way. This is
mostly done after the fact of being said, but I do it to see if I
have anything to clarify later (I'm a creature of conscience).
