My self-summary
I'm a lapsed hedonist, poking my head out of the blankets and blinking at the sunlight. I'm energetic, inquisitive, and when I find something to be really funny my laugh starts off as a tea kettle whistle/wheeze for a few seconds before it finds a gear and gets going. I'm lucky enough to be in a position where I'm enjoying my current direction in life; figured I'd see if someone was interested in coming along with me for a little while.
What I’m doing with my life
Toiling away in networking, eating stuff. Traveling, writing, sipping wine. Exercising regularly, eating right, and testing frozen surfaces with my tongue. Sautéing onions, garlic, and carrots in bacon fat, then dousing the whole thing in white wine and standing over the skillet to inhale the steam.
I’m really good at
Reading, conversing, hiking. Basically any "ing". Well, any good "ing". I'll pass on genuflecting and harpooning.

Effortlessly steering a conversation off on a wild tangent without you being aware it's happening until it's too late to do anything except hang on and enjoy the ride, baby.

Fetching items from low branches for the diminutive. Fruit, and such. Maybe a kitten.
The first things people usually notice about me
My height, how quickly I talk, and very likely the hippo I brought into the store with me. "Pardon me," the clerks say, "I couldn't help but spot your hippo.""Yes indeed," I reply, "I expect it was the first thing you noticed about me."
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Murakami, Belano, Chabon, Gaiman, Calvino, Helperin, Pynchon, Wallace, Cantor, Mitchell, Egolf.
Lawrence of Arabia, Jules et Jim, Harold and Maude, The Big Sleep, Princess Bride, WALL-E, The Awful Truth, and Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs has worn awfully well so far.
Community, Arrested Development, Doctor Who, 30 Rock, Firefly, Battlestar Galactica, Venture Bros, Mad Men, Deadwood, Futurama, Archer, Breaking Bad.
Pixies, Django, Janis, Basie, Black Keys, Jack White, Waits, Watson, Lead Belly, Belle and Sebastian, Chuck Berry, Die Amsterdam Klezmer Band, OCMS, Lucinda Williams, Velvet Underground.
All of the food. All of the food!
The six things I could never do without
Music, books, some sort of writing medium (papyrus would be pretty cool and get-backish, so I'll go with that), thermal underwear, wine, and soup.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Lately it's been a lot of musing about triathlons. Triathlons and, as always, monkeys. Also travel, travel, and possibly travel.

Beets! If I'm honest they're what I was thinking about when I wrote this (and the previous) sentence, and hold no special place in my brain. They're pretty awesome, though, so I'm considering thinking about them more often. If that happens I'll come back and remove this bit and all you'll read is "Beets!" and then nothng else.

Still thinking about monkeys, too. Monkeys eating beets.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out poking around live music venues looking for something good, or eating at home while hunched over a book or tablet, or meeting up for a beer, or sitting in a theater watching something either good or not-good, or sitting in a playhouse watching something either good or not-good, or eating at a restaurant hunched over a book or tablet, or whistlin'. Sometimes all of the above! Those Fridays are the best Fridays.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
When I was much younger I used to enjoy dunking my graham crackers in milk and eating up the sodden, crispy result. In my prime I could go through a whole thing of crackers in a sitting.

Not particularly private, but it was a nice thing to remember. My gut would be cold and hard for about a half an hour afterward.

  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 28–52

You should message me if
it doesn't cause you injury. Please don't injure yourself on my account. Unless you're messaging me 'cause of your interest in finding a traveling partner, in which case I'm ok with some slight spraining. If that's your situation, remember - ice, then heat.
