My self-summary
--I am the kind of guy who owns a dinosaur tooth. I dropped it and broke it a few weeks after I got it, but was able to superglue it back together. This means I can now put "Reconstructive Paleo-dentistry" on my resume. : )

--I was bit by a chipmunk once and lived to tell the tale.

--I enjoy traveling and have collected sand from two different oceans (and one gulf). I have an unopened bottle of water from Fountain of Youth. Also, I stole a rock from the Circus Maximus.

--I have lived in the north, south, east, and west, though I consider myself mostly a New Englander, having been raised in Massachusetts. (Western Ma though, not witch country.)

--I also love playing tennis very terribly. I'm an absolute beginner, but I have a blast trying.

--I like to relax by spending time at the beach or by watching all the Netflix.

--I am a cat person. But not in the sense that I am part cat and part person.

--One of my all time favorite things on the planet is Christmastime in New York City.

--I'm totally left handed. Except for when I use my right hand.
What I’m doing with my life
"Some of the most important decisions we make in life are done in a matter of minutes--even seconds. It's your life, do as you will."
--John Goodman from
Gigantic

After spending the last decade flittering around the country and taking in what it has to offer, I have finally enrolled in college. I am working toward a combination of history and political science. I'm fairly sure these will come in handy in my future.

My ultimate goal in life is to own and operate my own Tiki Bar. Failing that, I think I'll settle for becoming the President of the United States of America. Either or.

When I am not working, I like to spend my time working on my hobbies. I am quite a middling guitar player. However, that hobby has faded into the background as I find myself exercising more. I try to run at least two miles daily. When I can, I love a game of tennis, despite how awful I am. Mealtimes often involve me either inventing dishes on my own or playing "amateur food critic" at whichever restaurant catches my eye.
I’m really good at
--Standing quarters on their sides. (Click here to see for yourself.)
--Adjusting the directions on my box of dinner to make it better.
--Playing Oregon Trail. (The original, not the cheesemo iPhone versions.)
--Making iPhone apps.
--Portmanteau.
--Crossword Puzzles.
The first things people usually notice about me
The first thing people usually notice is, "Hey, that bum *really* needs a haircut!"

I also have a face so expressive that I'm often not aware I'm making expressions. And when not making faces, voluntary or otherwise, I've heard I have big eyes--as clearly not evidenced by any of my pictures here. : p
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Music
Every band in every genre has both good and bad songs. As it stands, there is almost nothing I won't listen to. In general though, my tastes steer me toward good old-fashioned rock and roll. Everything from Buddy Holly to today's modern rock music, I dig it all.

Some of my favorites are: The Yardbirds, Eric Clapton, Led Zeppelin, Sublime, The Beatles, Lady GaGa, Pepper, The White Stripes, and so on...

Movies
When I was a kid, Salieri, from Amadeus, scared the crap out of me. After rewatching the movie, I've decided that I actually like Salieri, and that Mozart was, in fact, a godawful goober.

Mostly, I just tend to watch whatever Netflix throws at me. Lately, that has included a lot of documentaries, and British stuff. Although, to be fair, my tastes do sway quite frequently.

Some movies in my collection are: The Shawshank Redemption, The Time Traveler's Wife, Bill & Ted, The Fall, Cannibal! The Musical, Goodfellas, Mallrats, Evita, Karate Kid, all four Terminators, and Unforgiven.

Movies such as "Epic Movie," and "Scary Movie," are terrible and should always be avoided. Always.

TV
I don't really watch TV, and I don't mean that as in: "I'm a hipster, and I think I'm better than you because I own a TV that I never, ever turn on." No, I just don't like sitting around on the couch all that much. That said, I will absolutely not miss any episodes of Breaking Bad, Doctor Who, and It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia.

Books
It's my argument that books are inefficient. I'll read, sure, but only when there's time for such things. And then, only for the story. That said, I really enjoyed reading Wicked. I have read it many times and will read it many more times. I absolutely love its take on the Wizard of Oz mythology. Also, Jurassic Park.

Food
My tastes in food are simple: I like food with a lot of flavor. That means that I eat a lot of Italian, Mexican, or otherwise spicy food. Lately, I've been eating more and more Indian food. And of course, you can't go wrong with some good old fashioned American food either..

I pour Godiva Liqueur on my ice cream instead of chocolate syrup. Just thought you'd want to know.
The six things I could never do without
This question is surprisingly hard. Things I could never do without, I don't know. Most things, I can either take it or leave it. Instead, here are some things I could never do without and some other things things I'd rather not do without:

--My #1 guitar.
--Love; friendship.
--Good food.
--Grandiloquence and sesquipedalian loquaciousness.
--Optimism (I just got a print of this in the mail!).
--My iPhone.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Often when I'm driving, I like to imagine that in my passenger seat is a famous dead person from history times. Usually it's someone like Ben Franklin or Thomas Edison (Why is it never Tesla!).

The time traveling passenger is both frightened and fascinated by the car and how fast it's going. I then explain how everything works to him and he is amazed by it all. I also wow and entertain him by showing him other modern technologies. This usually doesn't work out all that well because the person nearly always looks them self up on wikipedia, and finds out everything about their future.

Then the person goes back to their time, invents all the stuff that they saw here and totally changes history. Sometimes the history jerk steals my iPhone or whatever and I regret showing them anything at all.
On a typical Friday night I am
Friday? Usually that means it's time to re-superglue my shoes together.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I used to love rollerblading when I was in high school. I would spend all day every day skating around the neighborhood: up and down all the Berkshire mountains and hills. I would race the neighbor kids and usually always won. I even went out and bought high dollar skates because I loved it so much.

Here's the thing though: I never learned how to stop! I had actually managed to convince all the neighborhood kids that it was cool to end the races, or whatever, by diving into someone's lawn.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 24–34
  • Near me
  • For new friends
You should message me if
If you think we would get along, drop me a line.

Or, if you don't think we'll get along, send me a few words anyway. That's why we're here, right? To socialize. And who knows, we might have some really great discussions, you jerk.

Oh, and you should absolutely contact me if you are a magician. Seriously, how bad ass is that?
Me: "What's up?"
You: "Oh nothing. Just--what's this! I have three cups now! Also, where's your watch? In my pocket! I've been flying this whole time!
Me: speechless...

But, most of all, if you want to teach me to cook, message me now!

Disclaimer: I mainly browse this site from my phone a few minutes at a time, so if I don't return your message right away, it's because of that. Also, because the okaycupid app doesn't have chat built into it, I miss out on the chat features of this site unless I'm near a computer. So, chances are, I'm not ignoring you, I just can't see anything you're saying. Sorry.
