My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
"People who throw kisses are mighty hopelessly lazy."
─ Bob Hope

I love that quote!

Before we get too far into this, let me give you the definitive TL;DR version. I'm kinda cute, kinda funny, kinda smart, and kinda poor. I'm working on that last one though.

Alright then ─ let's get on with it, shall we?

I lead a life of mystery and intrigue. It involves copious amounts of studying, frequent rearranging of letters to form words, and weekly feats of strength, agility, and endurance.

I am... jones1973 ─ a good man with a dirty mind.

You might want to grab yourself a drink and brace yourself for a flurry of words before continuing.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
"Not all those who wander are lost."
─ J.R.R. Tolkien

Ruining it, I reckon. At least if I am doing it right.

I used to have a pretty nice paragraph in here about how, when I lived in Michigan, I was involved in a variety of sports. It was true, but I think it made me look like some sort of athlete ─ which I'm not. I just like playing. And yeah, the paragraph was all kinds of nice. You'd have liked it.

These days, I am attending college again. My plan is to get a healthcare-related degree. I intend to get the degree and parlay that into a related career, rinse, and repeat. Aw yeah! It's really kind of exciting. Am currently treading water as I languish on the waitlist for my program.

Was previously employed as a software developer. Changing careers has been, um, an adventure. I still program, but it's for personal satisfaction as opposed to monetary gain ─ I enjoy it.

I also participate in clinical drug trials as a *healthy* volunteer (important distinction, that). It's an interesting experience, and I've met a lot of great people doing it. It's definitely unconventional work, but it'll do as I make my way toward something more conventional.

Speaking of volunteering, I also volunteer at the local food pantry.

For fun and sport, I like to occasionally throw myself headfirst into nature and go day hiking. Traditionally it's been on Saturdays, but I can really go any day of the week. I enjoy exploring and am more than happy to eschew maps and go off-trail to check things out. When the cold weather descends upon us, I tend to go out less as I embrace my inner wuss.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
"I'm such a good lover because I practice a lot on my own."
─ Woody Allen

• Making pancakes. I have references.
• Rocking facial hair like nobody's business.
• Putting the toilet seat down ─ like, 99.9997% good.
• Being a poor college student.*
• Knowing random things.
• Forgetting a word, but being able to dance all around it.

Practice makes perfect.

*Makes me an excellent buy as I'm currently undervalued.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Obviously how devastatingly handsome I am. How the invading grey accentuates the brown in my hair. The scruff on my face. My custom-built chin.
In other words, I have no idea.

UPDATE! One woman said, "You're taller than I thought you'd be." She was obviously referencing the average 2" height increase guys give themselves on this site. I'm actually a smidgen taller than 5'7", but I round down because of, y'know, common sense.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
The Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy series and Freakonomics. Possibly because those are the only two I can remember right now. In general, I prefer non-fiction to fiction, but it's only a slight preference.

Okay, so I actually do remember other books ─ if only because I've read them recently. For example, the last book I read was The Signal and the Noise: Why So Many Predictions Fail ─ but Some Don't by Nate Silver. Was an interesting, but sluggish, read. Am currently reading Naked Statistics: Stripping the Dread from the Data by Charles Wheelan. I sound like a lot of fun, don't I?

The Skeleton Key, because it didn't have a happy ending. Too few movies don't, and that's too bad. The Lord of the Rings series, because it was rather epic. I gravitate more to the action and adventure genres, possibly because they both start with "a".

In more recent news, I've watched Guardians of the Galaxy about five times now, which I never do.

Shows, TV
While I like television, I don't watch much of it. Just a few shows here and there. Specifically, I watch The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, and Orange Is the New Black. I really enjoy them all. I've just started watching Orphan Black and am totally digging it.

I'm really digging these songs right now:
Rhye - "The Fall" (and really, the whole album)
Aloe Blacc - "Love is the Answer"
The Pierces - "Secret"
Juke Baritone - "Ya Said Ya Loved Me"

The vast majority of my music is streamed via Pandora. I just have it shuffle all my stations. If you're really curious about what I listen to, here is a link to my stations there:

I love live music of just about any type. When it's good, it's good.

While not music, NPR needs to be listed here. Good stuff, that NPR (with the notable exception of Prairie Home Companion).

Many favorites. Frequently crave a version of Spicy Spinach and Sausage Pasta, and when comfort food is called for, a version of Incredibly Cheesy Meatloaf. Also, breakfast; I love breakfast.

I am absolutely not a fan of sushi, and mushrooms are completely worthless.

Not much of a fan of chocolate. I'll eat it, because sweet, but I never covet it. More for you!
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
"He is richest who is content with the least, for content is the wealth of nature."
─ Socrates

Though I still love pizza, I've been cutting back in a combined effort to spend less on food and eat healthier. With that said, I'll never completely give it up. Pizza and I are BFFs.

Changing of Seasons
I don't mind the actual change from fall to winter, but winter itself and I have had a bit of a falling out.

The Internet
God forbid I actually pick up a book, talk to other people, or rent porn from the local video store.

Good Beats
Helps keep my neck limber and gives me a semblance of cover for impromptu dancing, making me look a smidgen less the fool.

Not Quite Warm Enough Covers and a Cold Room
So very awesome when going to sleep. Seriously. This is sex. With chocolate.

Yeah, that's only five. It felt like six though, and that's what counts ─ right? Right?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
"I have no special talents. I am only passionately curious."
─ Albert Einstein

Slowly making my way through.

Mostly the naked ones. Mostly.

Why I'm not doing it more often. That the in-between, falling back asleep off and on time between waking up the first time and actually getting up can result in some sweet ass dreams.

My Kids
Boy, 8. Girl, 11. They live in Pennsylvania with their mother.

The Future
What my next adventure will look like. They've been rather spontaneous as of late.

I quite enjoy it. Very much so. If I looked at your profile, there's a good chance I considered what it'd be like to kiss you. Sorry about that.

Strange Random Thoughts
Most of the randoms I mull over don't belong in a profile as swingingly cool as this one.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
"What America needs now is a drink."
─ Franklin D. Roosevelt

Out for drinks and/or dinner. Resting. Watching a movie. Studying. Wishing my friends could come out and play more often.

And that's all in a single night. Maybe.

All of the above is a lie, a damned lie! It was written in a weak moment when I thought I actually had a life. I don't. On a typical Friday night I'm diluting my beer with an unending cascade of salty tears.

That might not be true either.

Usually I'm at the bar with my friends telling them that all I really want is someone to hold me and tell me that everything is gonna be alright.

Again, probably not that.

Most Fridays I'm packing my meager belongings and moving to a new city, trying to stay a couple steps ahead of the Feds.

No... that's something I used to do. In my dreams. At night. When thinking about ideas for a new screenplay. Probably.

These days I'm video chatting with my friends, planning the revolution. And, uh... You didn't hear that from me.


Now this is an example of something that I'd like to be doing:

Having dinner, a couple drinks, and doing something else such as catching a show, seeing a movie, visiting a museum, listening to live music, descending upon the zoo, or *whispers* going bowling. Preferably with someone else. Preferably with you.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

*I just wanted to put that song into your head.

Any of the above is fine. Combinations of the above are awesome. All of the above is über. None of the above is so out of left field, it makes my heart go all pitter-patter.

Following the questionable premise that all men are assholes ─ that you should just pick one ─ I posit that you should pick me. After all, you've already invested a nice chunk of your time in reading my profile, and more importantly, you're already here.

I can be verbose.

*makes small hand movement*

You are going to write me.

(it's a Jedi mind trick)

We should go out for tea or, if the weather is nice, a short hike.
