I leap tall buildings in a single bound, but I'd rather take a
running start. I can change a flat tire, but make sure the jack is
actually in the trunk first before you ask me, please. I'm the
ringer on your team at trivia night, so you can finally win that
free bar tab. I'm the guy to bring with you to both corporate
events and dinners with your parents - I promise I won't embarrass
you. I ask great questions, but I'm not the Spanish Inquisition.
I'm an excellent driver, an excellent driver. I rarely drink beer
anymore, but when I do, it isn't Dos Equis. I respect your
preference to eat lawn clippings, as long as you respect my
preference to eat the animals that eat the lawn clippings. I will
almost always go for the easy pun &/or one-liner, and yes, it
IS an inherited trait. I walk into every room like I own it, but
I'm really just leasing it with an option to renew. A man in my
position can't afford to look ridiculous, and yet I seem to manage
it with startling frequency. I believe in long, slow, deep, soft
kisses that last three days, but let me put on some Chapstick
first. I'm not a nerd, but I definitely speak their language. I
will never make you a sports widow...except during the playoffs. I
love watching hockey, but on the ice I'm a danger to myself and
others. I have yet to see a bicyclist on the streets of San
Francisco who actually obeyed the traffic laws. I believe that
stuffing is evil (cooked IN the turkey, that is). I own a white
polyester suit, a foot-tall afro wig and white patent-leather disco
shoes with 4-inch heels, and they look damn good on me. I like
YOU - are alive and conscious, and have a conscience. I'm less
concerned about your political affiliation than a good heart and
good manners. You are more of a city person than a country person,
though you don't mind the occasional taste o' nature...especially
if it involves visiting vineyards. You don't NEED to be in a
relationship to feel good about yourself. You will call a spade a
spade, but you know when it's time to be diplomatic. You know that
the purpose of a first date is to see if there will be a second
What I’m doing with my life
I'm in career transition mode, having just become a residential real estate salesperson for a boutique agency. In my hypothetical spare time, I'm learning how much more I don't know about wine, and writing the Great American Novel...
I’m really good at
Writing essays, obviously.
The first things people usually notice about me
My sexy eyelashes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'm a reader. When dining alone, I have to be reading something, even if it's (gasp!) an actual newspaper. As far as what I like to read, a lot of history, especially American and military; cookbooks; and yeah, sci-fi/fantasy stuff.
Music - classic rock, and blues. I will go with you to the Symphony or Opera; you just gotta dress up real purty! :-)
Favorite Movies - Lone Star, Raising Arizona, the Star Wars series, Godfather I & II, Mel Brooks' earlier works, all the Pixar movies.
TV - I only recently rejoined the civilized world by getting cable once again! Mostly, I'll watch ESPN, Comedy Central, the Food Network, and the bio/educational channels like Discovery, History Channel, The Learning Channel, etc. San Jose Sharks hockey games! Coming soon, season 5 of A Game of Thrones on HBO...
Food - more, please! But seriously...favorite dinner is a nice steak and mashed potatoes, but I'm always up for exploring the infinite options that SF has to offer. I'm equally comfortable at In & Out or Slanted Door, so you CAN take me anywhere. Just warn me, I wanna have the appropriate attire!
The six things I could never do without
NOTE: My family are not things! They come before any object or
institution, and I hope you feel the same way about your family.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
This very essay...
On a typical Friday night I am
Wine tasting, watching the ball game, movies with friends, going to
see stand-up comedy. Occasionally, though, I will collapse on my
bed after work and just zone out; depends on the week!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Rice-A-Roni IS the San Francisco treat!
