My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
is only the beginning...

Just recently, I went to the Metropolitan Museum Of Art in New York, where my favorite painting was Venus & Adonis by Peter Paul Reubens. Venus is trying to restrain Adonis from going off to hunt the wild boar and even Cupid (the inspiration for this website!) is wrapped around his legs. Adonis should go live happily ever after with Venus, but instead breaks free and becomes an unsuccessful matador (the boar survives and Adonis doesn't). :( We can all learn from this painting.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
includes moving to SF in August 2012...As for the pic of me wearing a suit, its caption is ironic. I think that people who wear a suit too much become a suit. Like those grumpy old men in Congress...And as for Myers-Briggs types, I'm a total ENFP.

Of course I like working out and traveling in Europe and Latin America. But my most interesting hobby is blood drives, which I've done since I was 17. When I first entered high school, I wanted to be like the seniors who seemed fearless about parting with a pint of blood. But a pint was the size of an ice cream container - no small amount.

I secretly hoped to get out on a technicality, so that I could avoid getting pricked by the needle and not admit being afraid. When I was told that I had normal blood pressure, I was so disappointed. To make a long story short, I looked away when it was time...

When I was little, I used to ask the doctor giving me vaccinations to give himself one first to prove it didn't hurt. Each shot contains just enough of the illness to give your immune system a workout. So if he injected himself all day for every frightened child, he would have given himself enough to take down a hippopotamus!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
cooking! I like to experiment with a lot of sauces and seasonings, and I frequently surprise guests with my cooking. I first got into cooking in high school when I volunteered during senior year to cook food to be served at a homeless shelter. I expected that I could just start at the end, by pouring salt over tin containers.

But they expected me to make meatloaf, with me using my bare hands, mixing eggs, oregano, garlic powder and onions into cold raw meat. I was crying...because of the onions that I had just cut. I had to wash my hands many times, even though I was using a premium quality soft soap... I don't have any children, but I think this would be good preparation for changing diapers and being vomited upon regularly.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
is that I'm similar to most of the guys you've dated in the past. I have good personal hygiene, taking a shower and brushing my teeth daily. I appear reasonably dressed, without stray crumbs, stains and holes. I look like I go to the gym on a regular basis. I even have cell phone service through a major telecommunications carrier, instead of pre-paid! All that AND a bag o' chips.*

You notice your parents whispering to you "he's a keeper!!!" because I work in an office, drink $5 cups of frozen coffee and prefer checking accounts over check-cashing. As opposed to someone who's in and out of jail every weekend. Hopefully you've outgrown the codependent, shock your parents and make them cry phase.

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Book: A tie between Post Office by Charles Bukowski and Kitchen Confidential by Anthony Bourdain (They can share first prize.) In case you didn't know, Bukowski's alter-ego was Henry Chinaski. My username carries on his proud legacy.

Movie: Taxi Driver (a remake would answer whether his mohawk can be worn as an ironic haircut on Valencia Street or the "new" Divisadero Street).

Show: The King Of Queens (its satire was always exact).

Music: The Rise And Fall Of Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From Mars by David Bowie (what a sense of grandeur - with a name like that, it had to be a masterpiece).

Food: Stone crab claws when in season. Otherwise, the top prize goes to ceviche (the sushi of the Pepsi Generation, Millenials, etc. Saying sushi is still your favorite food is like saying you still like Aerosmith's power ballads from the '90s - it'll be our guilty pleasure). Dessert must be key lime pie.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
include: local non-corporate coffee; an honest pour of half-and-half; one sweet-n-low; one equal; one splenda; its splendid aftertaste when it's preferably served cold...It's so much better than the office coffee that makes you wince!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
what's up with that question where they ask if you think contraception is morally wrong? The followup question should be: "If you answered yes, are you a Republican candidate for president?"
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
spreading joy and merriment, and not on the computer!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
is why they only ask for one? Here are three: 1) My birthday is August 29th - same as Michael Jackson!; 2) Harvey Milk taught at my high school - decades before I was there, obviously; 3) I hardly drink and don't take sleeping pills, so I won't snore and keep you awake!
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
you'd like to get together for drinks in a light-hearted, mainstream part of the city, known for its $7 gelato cones (nowhere marginal or desperate, for mama's little jewel): we'll share ideas, learn about each other and see if there's a connection.

My profile is all in good fun, even if it comes off a bit tongue-in-cheek at times. So if you think we'd enjoy each other's company, I'd love to hear from you!

And feel free to take the initiative by sending me a nice greeting. Don't just check out my profile, wondering what I'm like, and hope that I take the first step so you won't have to. I can see the determination in your eyes. Jump in! Hit reply. Water's warm. :-)

P.S.: Quickmatch doesn't tell who rated me. I need a message of words, not stars. Kthanksbye.
