My 8 year old son is my life. I try to eat lunch with Ray everyday
at school and play with his friends. We love to camp, fish, swim,
and walk along the trails. I love the outdoors, especially anything
near, on, or in water. Playing and watching sports ( Skol Vikings!
), karaoke, time with friends, reading... Currently trying to
expand my repertoire of coking specialties.
What I’m doing with my life
I have been at the same job for 17 years this May, but am seriously
thinking of finding a new job in the Cities, if I can find the
right one. I don't truly have a 'dream job', I have always felt
that if your job allows you to make a decent living and be happy,
anything else is a bonus, but a job with one of our local sports
teams would have some cool perks.
I’m really good at
Quick ( usually slightly sarcastic and I think witty ) jokes.
Darts, not a great voice , which is why I sing dance/hiphop.
Learning how to cook Chinese, Italian, American,and Mexican. My
favorite Chinese dinner is Chicken Friend Rice, with Chicken Stir
Fry, and egg rolls. For Italian, I make a mean chicken Cattiatore,
For American, Pulled Pork, and Mexican Red or Green Enchiladas with
The first things people usually notice about me
Tall and easy going.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Finishing up 'Science was Wrong' by Stanton Friedman, next up is 'A
People's History of the US' by Howard Zinn for non fiction. For
fiction, The Hobbit as I haven't read it since grade school.
Movies tend towards nerdy or semi historical. Lord of the Rings,
Harry Potter, Hunger Games, Schindler's List, Braveheart.
Shows... I dont watch a ton of TV, but I love Big Bang theory,
HIMYM, and watching the sci-fi/geeky 'reality' shows like Finding
Bigfoot, Ancient Aliens, ect. I went to ParaCon with a friend last
year and had a great time.
My musical taste is very wide, my iPhone has everything from old
swing music, up to current dance music. I do try to limit my tear
in your beer country, you can only hear those so many times before
it gets depressing.
Food - my favorite fast food is Sonic, my favorite semi- upscale is
Axel's Bonfire, favorite Mexican is El Tequila in Brainerd,
favorite pizza is Red Savoy sausage mit kraut.
The six things I could never do without
Son, my library, fishing pole and tackle, my kitchen utensils,
I spend a lot of time thinking about
If I am raising my son to be a good person, and giving him the
tools to be happy.
On a typical Friday night I am
Work, then maybe karaoke for an hour or so.
You should message me if
Willing to either sing with me, or dance while I sing. It is a
nice, easy first date, offering chances to talk and not too much
