I work out of town at least half of the time these days, but I'm
here hoping to meet someone that I can spend time with when I'm in
town, and if we like each other then maybe we'll make something out
The travel is interesting but as often as not I just want to be
home digging in the garden. I wish I could spend more time paddling
canoes and breathing really good-smelling air.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm self-employed, mostly enjoying it and doing pretty well at it.
My jobs cause me to travel a lot, which I generally enjoy but
living out of a suitcase gets old; I'm feeling the itch for bricks
and mortar lately.
I’m really good at
cooking, riding bikes, camping, math.
Medium-good at singing, piano, guitar, harmonica, hockey, and
picking up new languages.
Not at all good at going to bed on time.
The first things people usually notice about me
I have curly hair and a beard. I speak quietly.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: A friend lent me some Jonathan Franzen and Chuck Palahniuk
novels that I have been enjoying recently. I also just finished
Maps for Lost Lovers and really enjoyed it. Some books that I go
back to are Roald Dahl, Poisonwood Bible, The Book of Negroes, Life
of Pi, and The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime.
Music: Folk and a bit of bluegrass lately. Previously rock'n'roll
from before I was born; prior to that lots of jazz and some
Food: Broccoli, beets, corn on the cob, onions cooked slowly in
lots of butter, tomatoes especially when you pick them and eat them
right there from your hand and they're still warm from the
TV: I recently got into The Wire, Community, and Breaking Bad. I
liked Lost but was extremely disappointed by the ending.
The six things I could never do without
2. Good chef's knife
3. Fresh fruits & veg
4. Clean air
6. Time to myself
On a typical Friday night I am
Likely to be having a pint with my friends or my sisters; if I'm in
the field or traveling I'm probably reading or working.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I once ate nothing but corn for 72 hours.
You should message me if
...you had to think about whether or not to capitalize the
beginnings of the paragraphs in your profile. "I'm really good at
Cooking"? That's not right.
...every once in a while you find poop jokes funny.
...you want to be an atheist but are annoyed that it's just as
dogmatic as theism so you are stuck with the pretentious-sounding
Come to think of it, those are just three facts about me, but if we
have them in common then we'll probably get along.
