My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Let me see if I can grab your attention while you're out doing your daily boy shopping.

I'm a scientist by training. Not the socially awkward type, well, mostly not the socially awkward type, but more of the somewhat wacky prankster type of scientist. It defines me in the way that art defines an artist.

I love: to be out on a hike, reading a good book, listening to music, cooking with friends, a really good party or to be zipping down the highway with the top down and the stereo turned up.

I like to volunteer and try to make a difference in the community.

I can be a great planner. But I don’t like to do it. It’s not the effort I mind so much as the lack of spontaneity. If you live in the big city, or big city adjacent as the case may be, there’s always something you can find to do that’s interesting. The Taoists have a saying, the journey is the reward. John Lennon had a saying, life is just what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans. I think both are true. The planners I know, tend to be the obsessers I know. And that’s just no way to live.

I like to travel. To see other countries, hike their pristine trails, eat their exotic foods and get sick in their exotic public restrooms. I like to show them that not all Americans are bastards.

Not enough? Damn.

I never want to shovel snow again.

I want to buy a basset hound that totally ignores me except when it needs to go out. Seriously, it shouldn’t even look up when I call its name. It might not even have a name. I'll call it something different every day. But, if he wants to go to the dog park, the Basset with no name will brag to all of the other dogs that he’s living the doggie equivalent of Nirvana.

I think that if you're not laughing at your self you're missing out on some really good humor.

My homemade, 2013 holiday card said Jesus loves you means something else in Mexico.

I think The New York Times has a liberal bias and that’s why I read it. Don't get me started on my lefty NPR.

I follow Batman on twitter and it is often the best part of my day.

I was raised by the Amish, well Mennonites really, but most people don't know who they are due the efforts of those glory hogs the Amish (oh yeah, I said it). The Mennonites would complain but we're talking about people who have until fairly recently considered the button as "worldly" and "proud" and as such, likely to be the work of the devil. Standing up for themselves ain't a strong suit. And think about those faded, well worn, and very comfortable 501's in your closet, they're are a first class, denim clad, making your ass look great, trip to hell.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Enjoying it.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Drinking Coffee, listening to The Beatles, making a really good cheesecake, finding the humor in almost any situation and being a klutz, first aid, particularly the self kind (see bit about being a klutz) but I've been known to throw a figure 8 on a broken bird wing in the past as well, being the calm presence in the midst of chaos, run on sentences that would make Falkner cry, now obscure Douglas Adams quotes. All non-starters really.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I honestly haven’t asked.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books - I could pee on this: And other poems by cats. Hilarious.
Movies - I don't really care, it has to tell a good story and it has to be told well. I guess I do care. But I don’t care if it’s a comedy or drama or that business.
Music - Something with melody and polyphony. My current favorite is a Bohemian-Danish folk tune. It's just beautiful. I have over 7000 songs on my itunes library and it literally ranges from Academy of St. Martin-in-the-Fields to ZZ Top.
Food - most anything as long as it doesn't have beets, mushrooms or zucchini. Oh, and no meat. I don’t care if you eat meat, that’s your choice and your business, it’s a very personal choice for me and me alone. If you get to know me, you’ll get the explanation sooner or later. I’m not militant about it, I don’t proselytize but if I cook it’ll be vegetarian (and I'm a very good cook), if you cook there needs to be something I can eat, doesn't there.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
In no special order: coffee, Music, spell check, Ibuprofen, my computer, friends. And rule breaker that I am, The Daily Show plus I really like my Mini too.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
If the ear buds for my iPod are fabricated from the rope that once made up the Gordian knot which therefore causes them to tangle in seemingly impossible ways every single time I put them down, or if there are invisible knot gnomes that follow me around. If it's the latter, what features I'd need to construct a humane (gnomane?) knot gnome trap. Seriously. How. Does. That. Happen? What's the physics?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
If you haven't come to the conclusion that besides the bipedal, carbon based life form business there isn't a lot about me that's typical, nothin' to see here folks, move along.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I didn't do it. It wasn't me. You've got nothin' on me.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If there was something in the above profile that you found interesting or made you laugh (and you know there was).
If you are happy with your life and you want to get to know someone who is happy with theirs.
If you think that joy, compassion, generosity and kindness are important.
If you love the warmth of the sun on your face but are content with a glass of wine and a great read on a rainy Saturday.
If you’ve never thought about submitting all of the answers in your annual corporate performance evaluation as haiku poems but now you can think of nothing else.
