Dog rile-er-up-er. Mountain climber. Snarky comedian. World traveler. Strict omnivore. Outspoken curmudgeon. Excellent planner. Terrible runner. Punk rocker. Adult child. Dry clean only. A great source for all your daily vitamins and minerals. 100% awesome. 93% fat free and 50% sure I stole some of this information from a nutrition label.

I kind of love the fact that I'm turning into a curmudgeonly, irrelevant old man who doesn't understand twitter or snap chat and is completely disinterested in social media.

I have a masters degree and a continual urge to radically change my life.

Crossword puzzles, Galaga, cooking eggs, remembering facts, slow cookers, wrapping presents, folding laundry, building things from scratch

I'm not good at:
Whispering
The first things people usually notice about me

I spend a lot of time thinking about

If I should give up all worldly possessions and seek a shelter by a lake.
On a typical Friday night I am
Drinking classy beer with semi-classy people.

Or watching Turner classic movies.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
This entire profile was an elaborate ruse to get you to think I'm cool.
You should message me if
You have book suggestions.
