My self-summary
UPDATE: Well, maybe you can tell, I wrote the old intro a while ago. I've hooked up with a couple people here, and it's been fun getting to know some new folks. And.... hmmm.... I guess this is a give away..... here I am (ahem) updating my profile instead of deleting it (sigh). Hmmmm. :-/

I REALLY do not like to write these self profiles, so, I try instead to deal with it using humor. Which is my preferred mode, and besides... life is too hard not to have a laugh, right? And it's not that life is always hard, it's just that it makes you appreciate those wonderful times all that much more.... ya' know?

So far, I've had a pretty fun time with OK Cupid, and while I'm very inclined to write little introductory messages to people that strike my fancy, I rarely actually hear back. So tell you what, how about YOU write ME a short note, and I'll write back. Promise.

Not so much into angry birds anymore. Got tired of it.

Well, thanks for stopping by. Oh, yeah, and I have a contact in Nigeria who wants to deposit 17,000,000 British Pounds in your checking account. See below for details ;) (tee hee).

= = = = = = =

I generally dislike having to write about myself, so how about some adjectives and short phrases instead? OK, here goes. Prefers music to TV. Prefers films to sitcoms (but OK with both). Like some indie films (but not all). Can always use a good laugh. Does not own a tie (but I have lots of tye-dies). Prefers flip-flops and sport sandals (as opposed to penny loafers). Likes to go out for breakfast and explore greasy diners (but there's nothing wrong with going out for a juicy, delicious steak every now and then either). Likes good ethnic food when it can be found (or a slice of pizza). Likes to go for walks around Gates Pass. Has a sport coat "just in case." Enjoys good times and pot luck suppers with my friends. Can hang and chill, but also likes "Angry Birds" and Sudoku. Don't mind tackling the big questions, but loves trivia and striking up conversations with friendly strangers about nothing in particular.
What I’m doing with my life
Pursuing an independent project that's been a dream of mine for 25+ years and trying to make it work. Sigh. Uphill battle some days (okay, maybe most days), but at least I'm having fun doing it! :)
I’m really good at
Non-dual thinking. Making people laugh, seeing the forest for the trees, perceiving things, making food that you probably should not eat (like biscuits and gravy, LOL), living inside my head (that's not always a good thing), finding reruns of Hogan's Heroes on You Tube (ditto), understanding social justice issues, seeing beyond prejudices, empathizing with the "little guy" and the underdog, and have an above average track record for creative problem solving (it comes in handy).
The first things people usually notice about me
I honestly don't know..... maybe when we meet, you could tell me (LOL)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Oh, boy, that's a tough one. Pretty much anything related to American "roots" music, blues, R&B, rock 'n' roll, folk, or world beat...... books, music, and documentaries. Greg Palast, Howard Zinn, The Grapes of Wrath, Par Lagerkvist (the series beginning with "Barabbas"), The Tao of Pooh, Dandelion Wine, and "Bound for Glory" by Woody Guthrie. I'm sure there's more. That's what comes to mind off the top of my head. Most times, if I'm reading a book, it's non-fiction and related to my field (field? what field? That'd be a good question to ask me in an email, doncha think? hint hint).

Movies... The Survivors, Raising Arizona, One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest, Once Were Warriors, The Big Lebowski, Repo Man, Priscilla Queen of the Desert, The Big Chill, Stanley Kubrick, Coen Brothers, and a few good Hitchcock movies. Stuff with Jack Nicholson, Diane Keaton, and John Cusack in them, and I like a good Clint Eastwood movie every now and then too. Lately, I've been trying to catch up on all those classic 1950s Westerns I missed as a kid. Some of 'em are kinda fun. I guess. And I just watched "Miracle on 34th Street" for the first time the other day (honest!).

Shows? Monty Python, Mythbusters (yes, that "nerdy guy" show), Dirty Jobs, Deadliest Catch. The Prisoner (classic 1960s TV show). Maybe The Avengers (Diana Rigg was kinda hot). Carnivale and Deadwood (HBO) were fun. Really liked the Sopranos. And all these years later, yes, M*A*S*H is still a favorite. I miss Barney Miller sometimes.....

Food. Open minded. Tend towards the omnivore side, and feel like that guy who wrote "Eat Right For Your Type" has some good points to make. Wish I ate more fruits and veggies (who doesn't?).
The six things I could never do without

Let's see: Oxygen, Water, Food, Roof over head, Electricity (what can I say, I'd make a lousy 19th century pioneer in a covered wagon) and that leaves one more....... hard to say. Music maybe. Freedom's good. I like that too. Oh dear, that's seven. And pizza. Now we're up to eight. Gonna quit now. Oh, I just remembered! The constitutional separation of church and state. Oh, my, now I've done it... that's nine.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why we drive on parkways and park on driveways. Or why we drive in the mountains and (wait for it...) "mount" in the drive-ins (groan! yes, horrible, I know). And the first person who ever ate a crab. They musta been REALLY hungry, eh? And why Canada still has an allegiance to the Queen of England (or her representative; what's up with that, exactly?). What kind of incredibly evil person invented "Fracking" (and could we "frack" them back some?). And why, exactly, is Bobsledding an Olympic sport? We've got four guys cramming themselves into a glorified tin can going 70mph on sheet ice. Not a really practical idea, when you boil it down. And are tomatoes a fruit or a vegetable (never could get that straight)? And finally, WHAT IS the capital of New Zealand? Oh, yeah, and $64 question: Why can't we all just get along. I spend a LOT on that one, ya' know?

UPDATE: I've since been notified that a Tomato is technically a fruit. There ya go. Still waiting on the capital of New Zealand (and yes, I've actually heard of "Google." It's more a rhetorical question than anything. LOL).
On a typical Friday night I am
Probably pursuing that life long dream. Or not. Maybe going out to hear some live music. Or looking for reruns of Hogan's Heroes. Or listening to music at home. I'm flexible that way.....
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Feel free to ask. There are "G" rated versions and "R" rated ones. You pick. LOL.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 32–68
  • Near me
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating, casual sex
You should message me if
You'd like to meet a seriously nice guy who tries to approach life with a certain amount of humor and irreverence. Bonus points for those who a) actually read all the way to here; b) are into non-dual thinking; and c) know what a "Type 9" is on the Enneagram :) ...... oh, and about that 17,000,000 British Pounds? I think I inadvertently deleted that email. Ooooops! My bad!
