My self-summary
Ineligible pseudo-bachelor ex-action hero seeks rehabilitated voodoo death bunnie for heart stopping suspense, bizarre thrills, and death defying adventure in pool, pinball, air hockey, maybe even darts, and whatever other fun ACTIVITIES strike our fancy.

The evil succubic minions of Dr Koblenz need not apply and the sirens of ArCHEviL of Observantly Unconstrained Superstitions (ACHELOUS) are right out. "Ninja-chicks," being kinda cool, are encouraged to apply.

And yes, the above really does make sense but you'll probably have to ask for clarification. And yes, I do have "real profile" type information I'm willing to share.

I am a lower-case n, standing on a hill, and waiting for a rocket
What I’m doing with my life
I'm re-discovering and re-inventing myself while raising a young daughter, working in a respectable field, and trying to find ways to make the world a better place (and often succeeding, actually)
I’m really good at
Laughing, loving, learning, teaching, creating, and being sarcastic, to name a few.
The first things people usually notice about me
My intelligence, compassion, and sense of humor.

As for physical attributes, my ass tends to get compliments (is that normal for a guy?). I have an oft appreciated dimple, and (GASP!) some early crows feet, that gets a lot of use since I smile a lot. And my eyes can reportedly do this interesting green... wait... no... they're brown... no... really... they're green... but hold-on... yeah... they're brown... kind of thing.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Favorites are always tough.

Chuck Klosterman's _Sex, Drugs, and Cocoa Puffs_ was a blast, and _The Egyptologist_ evokes fond memories, as does Stephen King's Dark Tower series. I'm currently chipping away at Ann Auerbach's _Wild Ride_ on the demise of Calumet Farm, previously the premier thoroughbred breeding facility, and _The Life of Pi_.

_Angels and Demons_ and _Star Trek_ remain on me "To See" list from last year. I'm a bit clueless about what is currently in theaters, truthfully.

For popularish tunes I've been listening to Eric Hutchinson's Rock N Roll a lot lately but am also drawn to Jason Mraz's I'm Yours. On the classical front, at present, I'd go with the 2nd Movement of Beethoven's 7th, and on the folk/world music stage it would be the Orion Beer Song as performed by Begin -- I think the live performance at Osaka Expo Park in 2005 is the best. Their performance of "Kariyushi no yoru" is also good.

I like trying new things, but it's rare I get a fixation on something specific or think in terms of a favorite food. I guess I'm truthfully not much of a gourmand or epicure. At the moment, tho, I could really go for some Thai ginger soup with shrimp at Keo's in Waikiki.
The six things I could never do without
On the semi-serious side: good family, good friends, good colleagues, a purpose in life, universal love and gratitude, and hot chocolate.

On the slightly less serious side: duct tape, roses to stop and smell, a Leatherman tool, recycled packing peanuts, Billy Mays commercials, and hot chocolate.

As an aside, "Billy Mays commercials" was on my list for months before the pitch-meister passed. Now, though, they seem even more classic.
On a typical Friday night I am
...spending time with my daughter, catching up on sleep, and traveling (sometimes).
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I know the truth, and it was NOT Col Mustard in the library with the candlestick!
