I am a fairly well adjusted individual that is re-adjusting to
living solo. Not necessarily looking for that long term
relationship but not hiding from it either. Would like to meet
someone that wants to have fun and discover life again. So many
things to catch up on and old dreams to pursue. Sound familiar?
What I’m doing with my life
Eager to start phase II (Doris already got her oats..if you get this we may be on the same wavelength) of my life. Been working the same job since I was 21 and have already secured my retirement, now I'm looking for that one thing that drives me for the remainder of my time in this world. Possibly return to a post grad program that I abandoned several years ago in education and history. Maybe teach or chase down history and join an archeological expedition to find the Holy Grail. For now I'm going to have some fun and well deserved me time.
I’m really good at
Working under pressure, like after I've procrastinated on
something. Cooking, grilling, creating recipes from old world
cuisine to various regional styles...local seafood,Cajun etc.,
using herbs from the garden and locally available ingredients.
Don't care to be politically correct when it comes to food...meat,
real butter welcome. Also homebrewed beer. I own as many if not
more kitchen tools as I do power tools.
The first things people usually notice about me
Probably the lack of hair, then my smile.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'm a history junkie so I read mostly about the ancient world..Rome
Greece, Egypt etc but also modern history. For fiction I like
historical novels, imagine that and those about the
supernatural,good and evil and the devine. Recently read a nine
volume version of the Arthurian legend that is like none other that
I have ever read called 'The Camulod Chronicles' by Jack Whyte. It
is set in the chaos of lawless ancient Britian with the withdraw of
the Roman Empire and it's legions in the fourth century. Love Dan
Brown's way of weaving history with fiction and the realm of the
mystical. I am currently reading, 'Caesars' Wives, (sex, power,and
politics in the Roman empire)'. Listen to most music but do not
like rap or any of it's variations. Prefer classic rock, blues and
some select country. Also enjoy listening to Classical music,
particularly the Russian composers. The Beatles are my favorite. I
do confess to not keeping up with the latest music(I've become my
parents), but I like alot of the music from groups such as
Nirvanna,Alice in Chains, Pearl Jam, Nickleback, Creed and
Metallica. Favorite movies...wow! I'd have to start with the
Godfather trilogy, then A Bronx Tale, Casino, Scarface and
Goodfellas. Other than mob movies I'd say, Braveheart and
Gladiator, Patton, A Christmas Story, Blazzing Saddles, Young
Frankenstein and Monty Python stuff.
The six things I could never do without
Besides the obvious, air, water and food,the support of my family, a handful of life-long friends, then coffee, a GOOD craft brewed beer and music.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The many roads my life has taken and how my choices effected this
path. How each day presents a new fork in the road and a new set of
choices. Life is a quantum quagmire. Esoterical matters of the
universe, or contemplating my belly button. These are actually
related...we came from our belly buttons and our spirit returns to
the universe. Not exactly Steven Hawking but close enough.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out with friends, where ever that may be.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Now if I admit it, it wouldn't be private. Maybe just one thing, I
never thought I'd find myself here but....
You should message me if
You want to, if you would like to hang out and have fun realizing
good things take their own time. Remember the old ad campaign,
"There can be no wine before it's time"?
