I love to discover things. When I was a kid, if I saw something in
a store window that fascinated me, I would stop whatever it was I
was doing and go into that store to see more. When I would go
hiking on a camping trail, I would inevitably deviate from said
trail to explore other paths, or make my own. I love to travel, but
don't do as much as I would like to... yet! I have so many things I
still want to do in this life... which means I'll never get bored
and never "settle down" the old fashioned way. I love Art! A lot!
My Parents were both Artists so how could I not!?! I dig going to
galleries. I have a passion for Theater, Movies, Photography,
Music, Dance, Concerts - Lots! I'm an excellent cook, though I
don't do it as much as I would like to.
I am dis!, dat!, and the other ting!
What I’m doing with my life
Pursuing my career, getting back into photography, working out and
cooking as much as I can (not at the same time), working on my
Christopher Walken impression, vacuuming, painting my bedroom
furniture, looking for the ultimate 24 hour diner, running around
with a pack of Hounds, writing, preparing for the coming thing...
it's big, whatever it is. New Passport photo.
I’m really good at
Impressions of people. Cooking. Staying up late. Napping, though I
don't nap nearly enough. Being pro-active. Thinking on my feet.
Being spontaneous. Photography. Taking care of my various Hounds.
Gaining access to things that others can't. Not giving up. Leading
when necessary. Finishing Marathons (3 and counting). Playing
devils advocate. MacGiver...ing (falls under 'thinking on my feet),
not MacGrubering (as I try not to blow things up too much!).
Working with my hands. Eating slices of pizza. Being ridiculous.
The first things people usually notice about me
My blue eyes and my strong cheek bones. My sense of humor.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

The six things I could never do without
To hell with 6! My Mac, Thai food... Ok, food!, staying up late,
BBQing, Friendos, Dogs, Traveling, Monkey business, skating on thin
ice, sleeping, NPR, Jon Stewart, Jedi mind tricking, my right to be
ridiculous! My neurotic Incredible non-edible Droid! Law and Order,
SVU, Working out, breaking the rules when they need to be broken!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The allusive attainment of balance and harmony. Traveling to exotic
lands. (I've done some, want to do a lot more!). My Dad getting
better and coming home, being as green as possible, squeezing in as
much out of life as possible. Bionics, as I want to be Better,
Stronger, Faster, how to adapt, improvise, and overcome!
On a typical Friday night I am
Seeing things, researching things, looking at things, playing with
things, eating things, petting things, wanting things, purchasing
things, taking things back, writing things, seeking things, working
things, reading things, and things in general... Things! The point
is I never have a typical night. But sometimes, just once in a
while, I just sit quietly... and stare... at things!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Ah, my dahling. How beautiful you are. How devastating. How lucky!
Little did you dream that one day you would meet...
You should message me if
you know that a five ounce bird (African Swallow, etc.) could not
possibly carry a one pound coconut. You like to laugh! A lot!! You
think people who believe we didn't land on the moon are just plain
silly (or whatever 'other' word you might apply!), in other words,
you're not into insane conspiracy theories. You like Spontaneity.
You see life as a grand adventure. You like to explore. You love
Dogs. You just plain wanna! Oh yes, there are just a few caveats.
(aren't there always!?!) If you lean far right and or hate our
current President - you shouldn't! If you have strong urge to
control things, then contact a good therapist, but not me... and
OK, you are now free to move about the Cupid!
