My self-summary
I'm an irreverent, sarcastic, genuine, hedonistic foodie. I am ambitious, loyal and affectionate. I want a partner I can trade silly banter with as well as have terrific chemistry. I also expect someone who has her act together. I find that life tends to deliver on whatever intentions one broadcasts, although getting off one's ass and going after what you want helps immensely.
Some of my interests are connecting with interesting and unusual people, twisted senses of humor, motorcycling, nature photography, dancing, singing, cooking, going to awesome restaurants, learning about the world, intellectual discussions, parties, good science fiction, (I have strong opinions on what this entails, although it's easier to describe what it isn't, i.e. the character who can walk through walls via being 'out of phase', but inexplicably doesn't fall through the floor. Oh, and he can still breathe.) I also despise alarm clocks with the white-hot intensity of a thousand suns, unless I'm not the one who has to actually get up when it goes off, in which case I couldn't care less.
What I’m doing with my life
Returning to the vibrant world of salaried employment at a job I kick ass at after a long hiatus of self-employment. Also spending time with friends, helping start a motorcycle club, and doing the odd bit of volunteering with projects I find worthy. Learning some martial arts, and learning some new skills and recipes when the opportunity presents itself. I'm also working hard at getting myself into better shape and learning to eat those... things that grow out of the ground.
I’m really good at
I absolutely rock at being the very corporeal embodiment of humility. That and sarcasm. I'm pretty good at that.

Cooking without recipes, particularly outside with fire, vicious satire, skiing, explaining complex concepts in relateable terms, motorcycle riding, all manner of technical pursuits, using the right word in context, and singing or so I'm told. I've never had the cojones to listen to my singing voice recorded. If it's anything like hearing my own voice on an answering machine I'm sure I'd be traumatized for life.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I tend toward being notably quiet. Shortly thereafter they notice that when I do speak up it's usually something unusually perceptive or funny. I'm a bit introverted, and a recovering engineer, so I'm trying to make a point of actually letting some of the stuff out of my mouth that I have habitually filtered.

Also that my natural complexion has that healthy retina searing glow normally only found amongst the ranks of the walking dead.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Taste What You're Missing, a passionate eater's guide to why good food tastes good. Maccaciavellian Intelligence (a great book on how maccaque monkeys, who are closely related to humans, conduct their social interactions based on evolutionary theory. It turns out they're little bastards. And yes, that title is spelled correctly,) Super Freakonomics, A Brief History of Time, The Selfish Gene, anything by Dave Barry, the Myth series, Heinlein, Asimov, H.P. Lovecraft, and Sun Tzu's "The Art of Dating." I recently discovered the shining joy that is iBooks on my phone, so I'm currently cutting a merciless swath through the sci-fi section of their catalog while huffing and puffing at the gym.

Anything James Bond in particular, and explosion porn generally, although it's nice if the plot isn't TOO mindless. My favorite saying regarding movies is that men prefer movies about many people dying quickly, while women prefer movies about *one* person dying slllooooowly. Total Recall (the original, although I liked the remake too.), The Princess Bride, Groundhog Day, Real Genius, Religulous, Idiocracy, the Avengers, Futurama, Family Guy, Monty Python, Red Dwarf, My Hero, Dr. Who (the new one, as I've never managed to get into the original. I know, I'm a heathen,) The Oblongs, South Park, The Daily Show, Moral Orel, Big Bang Theory, Lucy Daughter of the Devil, Invader Zim, and TED talks on Netflix.

Music-wise, electro-swing is my latest all-time favorite genre, and after a long period of frustration over being unable to find enough albums of it to buy, I'm thrilled to discover it's because there are dozens of hours of it available on free podcasts, thus viciously undercutting the commercial demand. Next problem, I now need a bigger iPod. #firstworldproblems. Chap-hop. Seriously, look on Youtube. Brian Setzer, The Offspring, Boingo, Pink, Barenaked Ladies, Dave Mathews Band, Eve-6, Garbage, Nine inch Nails, Thomas Dolby, ZZ Top, Eminem, Weird Al Yankovich and of course his esteemed predecessor Tom Lehrer, and Frank Sinatra. (Unrelated side note: I think the spell checker should allow for British spellings. I will never de-program my brain from typing favourite instead of favorite.)

Sushi, Vietnamese noodle soup, Pad Thai, Dim-sum, Vindaloo, Spaghetti (I make a killer homemade sauce from scratch), Tacos, Coq-au-vin, Peruvian seafood soups, pupusas, cheesecake, apple fritters. Anything decadent. I love things spicy, crave variety, and am a card-carrying carnivore, although I've had to learn to temper this tendency and cultivate a relationship with salad in hopes of reducing my volumetric displacement. The list of things I don't like is actually considerably shorter, i.e. Haggis, German food, organ meats, overcooked vegetables and boiled meat. I also like to offend as many dietary sensibilities as I can, preferably in one sitting. Can I get the GMO bacon cheese vealburger with a side of foie gras and a poached bald eagle egg please?
The six things I could never do without
Internet connectivity, my motorcycle, friends, spicy food, housecleaners, and affection.

I am discovering that I CAN in fact live without my PlayCube 360, although I'm still prone to occasional relapse.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The utterly deplorable signal-to-noise ratio on sites like this. Ways to make my life easier or more fun, or preferably both. How to draw a million perfectly concentric circles in a square inch. The nature of intelligence. What I can do to improve my relationship with the rest of my species. Quantum mechanics, chaos theory, cosmology, economics, the interconnectedness of the universe, the Drake equation as it relates to dating... oh, and sex. That last one seems to come up a lot.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out having fun, dancing, and socializing, watching a show, or attending a party.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm disappointed that 'militant pastafarian' is not an option under the religious views section. It's not that private, but doesn't seem to fit in any of the other slots.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 25–45
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
You're interested in joining me in my quest for world domination, or you'd like to go on a motorcycle ride up the coast. You get my jokes. You can spell, and know the difference between 'their', 'they're', and 'there'. (Extra bonus points if you know the difference between 'it's' and 'its' which apparently the spell checker doesn't.) You're smart, opinionated, and have a dark sense of humor. You don't believe in ghosts, aren't in therapy, and don't have weirdly arbitrary dietary restrictions. You're not a big scaredy-pants.
