Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I've had other profiles on here before, with previous names
relating to names. (blue_route was from a Walkmen song and "Map
Ref"45N_122W was loosly based on a Wire song.) PDX_Serenade is a
take on a Gun Club song (Texas Serenade). Interesting, no? Howdy.
Let me see here...
I work full-time at a local grocery chain and have been for the
past five years. I quite like my job, they treat me well enough, I
get benefits and free food... I cant really bitch.
I am fairly active... I ride my bike year round, rain or shine. I
have been really proactive on staying in shape after losing 70
pounds. If I'm not on a bike, I'm on foot... I'll try and avoid
public transit if I can help it, not to say I won't ride a bus...
I'd rather just burn calories than to listen to crying children
more than likely.
I live on my own, quite like it, I really enjoy me time... I did
have someone who didn't want to date me due to not owning my own
house... Sorry about that. I like my place just fine, thank
I quite enjoy coffee, and on occasion imbibe on booze... Though due
to my weight loss, my tolerance is WAY low... at times
embarrassingly so. With that said, I really try to behave myself...
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working, bicycle riding, spending time with friends... Seems I've
not be so creative lately... I really need to get back at
There is some of the shit I do.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Listening, cooking on the fly, not putting up with bullshit and
returning the favor.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Mostly my hair... sideburns.

This list is ever changing. As far as books go, the latest books
I've read that I enjoyed were The Dog Stars
by Peter Heller,
, The New York Trilogy
Paul Auster. I can say that I like Murakami, Bukowski or Palaniuk
but everyone does, so after awhile, who cares. I'm a huge fan of
Perfume by Patrick Suskind
. Honestly, I
like to think I'm fairly well-read... I'm just not a pompous dick
I really do enjoy "all kinds" of music, but to list everything is
dull ultimately. So, I'll just list what albums I've had on heavy
rotation in the past month Trail of the Century
by Slayer, Sound Affects
by The Jam
... and for some reason,
I've been listening to Sisters of Mercy
, This Mortal Coil
lately... I guess I'm moody. James Blake

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I use to be pragmatic with this list, but I'll just mention those
super obvious things
2. Your easy demeanor
3. Wide bike lanes
4. Long conversations that don't involve me talking about my
5. This shot of whiskey at the moment.
6. Friends who get me
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Admittedly, I'd like to think I was some profound man with a
wearhouse of ideas... I'm just a average dude with low expectations
and a fondness for dick/fart jokes. Also, I've been told I'm very
black and white on issues; that's true... I do not do well with
I'd like to surround myself with more positivity... Apparently that
can be too much to ask at times.
Recently my mother had passed away, so lately that's been something
that has been heavy... probably too private, but it something that
does effect me from time to time. Truth be told, I miss the hell
out of the old lady...
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You should have a drink with me... Yeah you! It would be nice to
have people not constantly flake on me as well... Perhaps I'm
asking too much.
Also, looking for a date for the Hillstomp show later this month...
My pal throws a good show. Actually, a coffee date sound most
appealing at the moment.
