My self-summary
I'm just looking for someone whose demons play well with my own.

I'd link to my wonderful partner Laura's profile, but she doesn't have one. Her husband might. We happily live together in North Seattle.

I'm not one that likes too much down time. I'm constantly working on some new project from organizing the garage, to home brewing, or finding some new hike to take, to get me far from the city.

I love Seattle, I've been here for a decade, and have been in PNW my whole life. Seattle has been to me like a barrel is to bourbon; it's helped to mellow me out.

What I’m doing with my life
With horror I'm trying to get my lest few prereqs set for grad school. Teaching was my goal when I started college, and after a little time off it's time to get back to that goal.

Otherwise I'm trying to cram as much life in to my years as I can. I feel like I've done a good job so far, and I want to keep that up.

Finishing a novel (either reading or writing). I'm always finishing a novel.
I’m really good at
Cooking. While it is mostly low carb, and sometimes on the boring side I love to barbecue and I love cooking for others.
Writing. I think so at least. There have been a lot of editors that disagree, and some that have been nice enough to print the words I've strung together.
Forgetting what I'm supposed to be doing when I start reading a good book or good bad book.
Rope I can tie a knot like a sonofabitch, and try to impart my skills to others.
Home Brewing. I have a love for good beer, so I've been learning to make my own. I have a nice robust porter, and a smooth citricy heffewizen worked out, so far.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books?
I like good books; I like bad books that suck me in.
Recent favorites include: Gone Girl, Blood Meridian, and Joyland.
Some of my all time favorites are:
The Heart of Darkness, Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, Red Planet, and Dreamcatcher. I've always been a big Stephen King fan; I squarely blame my mother for that.

Shows:
I don't have a TV, so my exposer is a little limited.
Hannibal might be some of the best TV I've seen in a long time. Mads Mikkelsen has kind of reinvented the character in a great way.
House of Cards, Orange is the New Back, and Longmire.
I like Netflix documentaries too. Like the stuff on Discovery and Smithsonian Channel.

Music:
I started playing guitar when I was 15. I've grown a great appreciation for musicianship. Even if I don't like a genre, I like good musicians.
An appreciation for Country, folk, and bluegrass is appreciated (bonus points if you want to go two-steppin').

Movies:
I like good movies and entertaining movies. I tend towards suspense, thrillers, and horror (I love good "found footage" horror), and Star Wars. I can't usually get into sic-fi, but I am a huge Star Wars nerd.
I won't even try with a favorites list here.

Food:
Don't get me started. I love cooking. It's a big part of who I am. I love eating real Mexican food. Everything else is up for negotiations. I like trying new foods.
The six things I could never do without
A good book
Something to write with. A pen, a tablet, an iPhone, anything.
Happy hour
Friends that are like family
My gym bag
30' of hemp rope
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Balance. "Life should be balanced, like a clean suit and a dirty martini."
How to finish this book.
Where did these people learn to drive?

I've recently become fascinated with chemistry, and I guess to a lesser degree microbiology not on a large scale, but practical applications.

I wish I had more time...
On a typical Friday night I am
Friday night is a crap shoot. Sometime out at a party, or sexy adventure (in my social circles the two are often one) sometimes chilling at home with Netflix. Other? Is other an option here?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
You can find me on FL: Josef_Abrams.
If we have similar intests there, well we might want to hang out.

Oh and I have this little phobia of the water. That extends to boats as well.
You should message me if
You enjoy cocktails and conversations, reading - specifically literature and genre fiction, but anything that is reading for enjoyment is just fine. I'm a writer, so if you don't appreciate literary art, picture a painter trying to date someone that hates art museums.

You think reading to each other is sexy. Bonus points if you want me to read my own work ;)

Cocktails can be replaced with outdoor activities. Conversations will happen either way.
