My self-summary
Time for a little updating. My avatar Snuffyspop is no longer accurate but OKCupid wants me to pay for the privilege of changing it. Snuffyspop was an homage to my childhood pug and became sort of a nickname for me.

Two years ago I adopted a beautiful four year old pug from a rescue I volunteer with. He is a godsend. I've named him Smitty after my late father who came up with Snuffy for our first pug. So that's my story and I'm sticking to it. I've posted a photo of him on my profile.

Ok back to the basics. I'm the nice Jewish boy, now all mature and grown up, that your mother wanted you to date when you were younger.

I prefer someone who can hold a conversation for more than fifteen seconds without it turning to her ex. Looks are less important than a New York attitude. Brooklyn transplants are my favorites but not exclusively my choice.

I am degreed, politically savvy and know the difference between a salad and a shrimp fork. I prefer watching to participating in sports but long walks with my dog are great.

I have a terrific, and slightly off-beat, sense of humor. I enjoy long Sunday drives to nowhere in particular, The Bay Area, flea markets, rock and roll, jazz, big bands, the arts and the Dodgers. Hey, I'm originally from Dem Bums hometown. I love kids, dogs and cats.

Age wise, I'm looking for someone who recalls when the Beatles performed together. Although not particularly religious I was raised Jewish but religion is a state of mind over matter and if you don't state it it doesn't matter. Tobacco breath is a no-no, as is drug use. Social drinking is a yes-yes. Past relationships are ok just as long as they stay there. Past baggage is not a problem. I've got a steamer trunk full but with a cyber lock to which I've forgotten the combination.

Now that you know something about me, tell me all about yourself. Let’s meet for coffee and conversation and take it from there.
What I’m doing with my life
Living the Vida Loca since I retired. Volunteering to help my fellow veterans and working with a group to feed the less fortunate. I am an active volunteer with a dog rescue group that specializes in pugs and pug mixes, my favorite breed.
I’m really good at
Reading other people's BS.
The first things people usually notice about me
My brain.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'm a Trekkie - but only the original series and its TV and movie offspring. Ferengis are my favorite aliens. Updating a classic like Star Trek is like rewriting Shakespeare.

I read primarily non-fiction and am liberal leaning politically, but not so far to the left that it becomes the polar opposite of the Tea Party. Marriage, gender, and all other equalities drive me. life is so much more interesting than fantasy. I enjoyed reading Jewish Pirates of the Caribbean. Who knew? Love Frank McCourt's books maybe because he was a high school English teacher of mine.

The New York Times and even the New York Post are superior to the LA LA Land Times.

Give me tickets to a big band concert or REAL rock and roll shows and I'm satisfied.
The six things I could never do without
We can discuss that over dinner.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I'm thinking I'm thinking.
On a typical Friday night I am
Usually out bonding with close friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I never would put that on-line. What a foolish question to be out there in cyberspace for all the world to see.
You should message me if
You want to continue the conversation.
