My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
INTJ. I'm an introspective person who gets along well with people, but I spend a lot of time following my own interests. Some people find me amusing, and I try not to make humor at the expense of other people.

I'm broadly read, pretty intelligent but not brilliant (top 1% but not top of the top 1%), somewhat credentialed (law degree), good at most sports but love playing basketball and soccer, a veteran, a liberal, interested in intellectual history, with undergraduate degrees in Philosophy and English, childless, a former Catholic altar boy and now longtime atheist, from a small town in northern Wisconsin. Does that help you peg me any better?

I'm sometimes surprised when a person walks into my life and I just enjoy who they are, someone with whom I can have a lively, amusing, ongoing conversation. But that is so indefinite, so idiosyncratic, so vague as to be useless as a description of what I am looking for.

Here's my Facebook page. In lieu of a diary my blatherings are probably as good an indicator of who I am as anything I can write here. My sense of humor isn't for everyone.

(6/8/14--I got the lovely hat along with 10 other items for $2 at an estate sale. I love these hats and wish I could carry it off. Gave it to a neighbor who was happy to have it.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Getting used to this middle age status, and wondering when I cross the line into bona fide elderly.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Learning, making decisions, fixing problems, attending to people who are in trouble. I'm a generalist who can learn to do most things reasonably well. I'm interested in intellectual history, but can also do various repairs on cars and motorcycles, given a manual and the tools. I'm currently teaching myself the fundamentals of basketball and reading on Renaissance culture and history.

I can also play a decent game of Scrabble, am pretty fair at Bridge, a solid intermediate Chess player, and was once a wicked foosball player.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
No clue. I'd love to meet some of you and have you tell me. Sounds like a narcissistic project.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Lately I've been a Netflix junkie, with TV series being my favorite fare; Breaking Bad, Damages, Downton Abbey, The Killing, etc. I like The Current.

I've read a lot of the classics in literature and philosophy, and I love reading history. I read a lot of science fiction when younger.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My mother and four younger siblings.
My health
Cat litter.
A cat litter scoop.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Why. It's very subversive.

In my darker moments I read or think about Camus, particularly "The Myth of Sisyphus", nihilism, the futile search for purpose and meaning, and the ways I and others avoid experiencing existential despair. At my best I help out others, or at least limit the harm I inflict.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Dodging paparazzi.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I used to pose nude for art classes in college.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You want. If I don't respond, it's because I don't see the point in sending someone a thanks-but-no-thanks email. I wish you the best on your path. If that's not fair, please let me know. It seems to be how others operate, and I'm alright with it.
