My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Je suis l'capitaine du mon propre l'ennui.

I am not a beautiful and unique snowflake.

I am well-educated, financially secure, curious and always trying to expand my knowledge. I love animals and would love to meet a woman who values honesty.

I will respond to messages. This profile is done in hopes of meeting someone for a serious long-term relationship. But, I am not averse to meeting friends. "Friends" is not code for something else so don't read into it.

I believe the joke that optimists are people who believe we live in the best of all possible worlds and a pessimist is someone who is afraid they're right. The glass is half full...of AIDS.

I want a partner in crime; a Butch Cassidy to my Sundance Kid, a Thelma to my Louise, crazy old Chief to my Josey Wales.

We can be young only once but immature our whole lives.

I decorate my house with functioning swords, dogs playing "X" paintings, and have AstroTurf for rugs.

I do not own a suit, slacks, nor even a tie. That is one good thing about working in the oilfield...blue jeans, boots, and western shirts are the pinnacle of professional business fashion.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Extracting dead dinosaurs from thousands of feet below the Earth's surface

Babysitting children 18-60 years old

Being amazed at the crazy ass conspiracy theories out there like the one about reptoids

Trying to get to the point in my career where I can own a dog and actually be a good owner rather than have it caged all day while I'm working.

Being debt-free except for bills and any credit charges from month to month. It is liberating to not owe anything and own all your things outright.

Translating Dostoevsky's works into Klingon.

Wondering why and grateful that funnel cakes are so popular in south Texas
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Mechanical things. I like to tinker with things, do all my own automotive maintenance, and try to repair things even though it is not in my job description. While I am not an engineer I do these things to try and figure out how things are built and whether I could imagine a better design.

Foreign languages. I speak Spanish fluently and used to speak Korean fluently but am losing it due to lack of practice. I minored in Russian in college and am competent with it. My Arabic is slowly receding but I can still read and write it. French...familiarity with it. I have my degree in English Literature and love studying it and its history. I have been told by native English speakers that my ability is passable.

Reading. No seriously! If I'm interested in a book I can, depending on length, read it all the way through. 400-500 pages a day depending on overall length and my interest. I read World War Z in one night. If that impresses you, or doesn't, then how about the Ghosts of Cannae (heavy, military, non-fiction) and Dune (the greatest sci-fi novel ever written)...I read them both in one long weekend.

Cooking. I also am peeved when people think that barbecuing and grilling are the same. They are different cooking processes (like frying is not the same as baking). But, I can cook very well. Maybe not haute cuisine, but the aforementioned Cajun fare, chili, wild game recipes, and simple things.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My intense gaze or height.

I am like Zartan...if I stand still long enough I can blend in to the background and change skin colors.

I carry entirely too much shit around with me.

At first I speak little and always say profound shit. After I've warmed to people you can't shut me up.

My highly offensive, inappropriate sense of humor.

I can recite Shakespeare from memory and have read Beowulf in its original Old English but people notice that I sound like a caricature of southern stereotypes when I talk.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
My favorite food is Korean food.

My favorite movie is "It's a Wonderful Life" or "Ikiru". "Seven Samurai" is up there. I also love the Aliens trilogy (Alien Resurrection sucked). One of my favortite movies in recent times is "Drive"; yes, the one with Ryan Gosling. It is actually a superhero film in disguise and he plays it brilliantly.

I do not watch much TV but I like BBC stuff like "Extras", "Sherlock Holmes", and "Being Human". I also enjoy the "Daily Show" and Colbert. Through Netflix I have become hooked on "House of Cards", got to catch up on "Breaking Bad", "Hell on Wheels", and other series.

My favorite book is "The Story of St. Michele" by Axel Munthe or "Baudolino" by Umberto Eco. I also love the classic staples of English literature: Shakespeare, Poe, Dickens, Chaucer, Kipling, etc. I also love Chalmers Johnson's Empire Cycle: Blowback, The Sorrows of Empire, and Nemesis. The Ghosts of Cannae. I also love longer poetry not necessarily epics or sagas like Gilgamesh but The Red Cross Knight and Childe Roland to a Dark Tower Came.

U2 before Pop!, when they did not suck

I listen to all kinds of music and am one of those who needs it going in the background.

I also love the sound of my turbo spooling up on my truck as it's pulling or climbing a hill. The radio gets turned down for that one.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My old Army buddies. Time and distance do not matter to us.

Beethoven's Symphony No. 9 in D Minor

My Aggie Ring

The loyalty and love of a pet

Books

CZ-75

Unspoiled, uninhabited places

Good food (o-jing-o bokkum is the best, followed by my mom's German sausage stew)

A comfortable pair of boots

Math lessons
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Halfway down the trail to Hell,
In a shady meadow green
Are the Souls of all dead Troopers camped,
Near a good old-time canteen.
And this eternal resting place
Is known as Fiddler's Green.

Marching past, straight through to Hell
The Infantry are seen. Accompanied by the Engineers,
Artillery and Marines,
For none but the shades of Cavalrymen
Dismount at Fiddler's Green.

Though some go curving down the trail
To seek a warmer scene.
No trooper ever gets to Hell
Ere he's emptied his canteen.
And so rides back to drink again
With friends at Fiddler's Green.

And so when man and horse go down
Beneath a saber keen,
Or in a roaring charge of fierce melee
You stop a bullet clean,
And the hostiles come to get your scalp,
Just empty your canteen,
And put your pistol to your head
And go to Fiddler's Green.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
For, looking up, aware I somehow grew,
Spite of the dusk, the plain had given place
All round to mountains—with such name to grace
Mere ugly heights and heaps now stolen in view.
How thus they had surpris’d me,—solve it, you!
How to get from them was no clearer case.

...or out riding my motorcycle.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
is that I want to move to Portland, OR solely because of the show Portlandia.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Keep in mind that I am very busy. I work in the oilfields long hours to earn my keep. This means I may go days, if not a week or more without checking my email. So, understand if you message me that you may not get an instant response. Whether we might hit it off or not, I am courteous enough to respond to any messages I get. And now, the list:

1. I have my own hobbies which I will gladly share with you and would like to participate in yours as well. But, if you do not like mine nor I yours, let's not pretend. Just because someone does not share a particular interest you have does not mean they hate you.

2. Your profile pics, without context, would not have someone mistake you as a street-walker.

3. You are honest.

4. You can stand to be around someone who cusses (curses) so much that it goes beyond rude, profane, and embarrassing to being comical and absurd.

5. You find that the differences between "there", "their", and "they're" are important. The same goes for "it's" and "its".

6. You do not have kids and will not miraculously produce any by the third date.

7. You cannot decide whether the world occupying the space between your ears is more important than that before your eyes.

8. You have a sense of adventure and know how to set up a tent.

9. You know what S.P.O.R.T.S means...or "tap, rack, bang" if your GT score was too low; and you get the joke

10. You are a gamer or don't mind me being one.

11. You are not totally cray-cray.

12. You understand that I am who I am and am not a work in progress. I will not become someone's idealized version of me unless I want to. I grant the same to you.

13. You are one of the 65% or women polled who hated "50 Shades of Grey".

14. You know the difference in the operating principles of a Diesel engine vs. gasoline.

15. You know what someone is talking about when they say "direct impingement" or "piston driven". Bonus points for knowing the difference between long and short stroke piston systems. Hint: not sexual
