I'm my own worst critic and don't much like talking about myself,
but... I'm a college-educated, single male in Brooklyn. More? I'm a
history buff and fascinated (if not a bit disgusted) with the
current political landscape. I am also a huge sports fan (but don't
let it get in the way of important things), I enjoy photography and
taking long walks (no, really!).
Most importantly... my family and friends mean everything to
(PS - I actually don't like being called "Joey", but I allow my
nieces and nephew to do it... how could I not? And besides, it was
my judgement that, when my nieces were born, every little girl
should have an Uncle Joey From Brooklyn.)
What I’m doing with my life
I am trying to get better every day. I am fully employed and
consider myself pretty well balanced. Of course, we can all keep
learning and growing.
I also find myself losing faith in OKCupid. Care to restore it?
I’m really good at
As I said, I'm my own worst critic, so I'll let you decide. I'm a
pretty good conversationalist, though.
The other night after counselling three different people on their
jobs, I also found out I give good advice (and have more patience
than I thought).
I guess you could say I'm a bit like a dog... I'm fiercely loyal,
very attentive, protective of those I care about, and if you show
me some love and trust, I'll give it back ten times over.
I have other skills... but I'll wait to share those as I don't want
to sound cocky! :)
The first things people usually notice about me
Uhhh... I shave my head and have been told I have nice eyes. Oh,
and... I'm short (5'6"). *damnit*
(Also, if you work with me you'll notice I tend to laugh at
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Good heavens - too much information to include here. I don't
discriminate with regard to entertainment. My favorites that I can
Music: Led Zeppelin
Movie: It's a Wonderful Life
TV: Family Ties, Cheers, Family Ties (old); Big Bang Theory, The
Blacklist, Grey's Anatomy (current)
Books: No "favorites" - I like historical biographies
Food: Italian (and yes, I know how to cook)
The six things I could never do without
Family and friends are most important to me, but not "things". So
(in no particular order)...
Something to write with/on
My Big Puffy Red Chair
My Nook (it's new and makes reading on the subway much
My DSLR camera (affectionately known as "my baby")
I'll think about number six...
(In truth, I grew up with a "packrat" (these days known as
"hoarders"), so I have gone the other direction and have very
little use for "things".)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I think a lot (I'm a writer at heart and a Virgo, after all), but I
can't pinpoint one thing. My mind is always active.
On a typical Friday night I am
Having dinner or drinks with friends or home watching a ball game.
(Then I sleep late on Saturday.)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
One of my favorite quotes: "Tell me all your secrets and I'll tell
you most of mine." (Brownie points if you tell me where that comes
Ok - I'll share two dirty little secrets - I like watching American
Idol and So You Think You Can Dance *shame*
You should message me if
You have something intelligent to say and want to meet someone who
happens to be pretty awesome.
