I like being able to do things for my partner—opening doors, walking the dog when it’s raining, getting you a cup of coffee or hot chocolate, making breakfast, finding that book or movie that you keep making oblique references to because you don’t own it in the hopes that I will take the hint. (Although when you get it, you shouldn’t be surprised that it’s a first edition.)
A bit about you..you are AWESOME. And one of the reasons you are awesome is that you don’t entirely believe it. You shine from within—it’s no particular thing that you do or say, but a collection of all that you are. If you want to know more about you, just email me.
What I like. Sunsets. I like it when the sun touches the lower edges of all the clouds and turns them red, like a fire that is creeping across the sky. I like reading, and words, and things that deal with words. I am a grammar and spelling Nazi, so please please please please PLEASE proofread.
Other things that I like—the West Wing, Harry Potter, sci-fi, French toast, cartoons, poetry, Billy Joel, historical fiction, LOTR, pretty much any major band from the late 60’s to the mid-80’s (and I can still sing a lot of it, too), Calvin and Hobbes, PDQ Bach, high energy physics, Whose Line Is It Anyway, space travel, and so much more!
What I don’t like. Rude people. People who inconvenience everyone else instead of taking a little inconvenience on themselves. Bad drivers. Takers. People who are mean to their kids. People who take their chosen specialties so seriously that they look down on anyone who doesn’t take it as seriously as they do. (Baristas and coffee-nuts, this means you. It’s a BEVERAGE, okay? You know, flavored water? Take a pill.)
There's a lot more to me, and I'm guessing there's a lot more to you, too. So let's get to know each other and start having a great time!
I’m a good cook, I used to be a carpenter, I am handy around the house, I can do lawn care and vehicle maintenance, I know how to sew and to patch holes in clothes, I do my own laundry (and my son’s), I don’t own a dog but I’ve lived with them and we get along just fine, I have owned cats and they think I’m awesome, I try to keep in shape but I don’t always succeed, I toss a mean pizza and make really good chocolate chip cookies, I'm a sexy beast, I go out of my way to help my friends, when the mood strikes me I’m a bit of a ham, I can do most major accents (Scottish, Russian, British, etc.--try me), I make balloon animals, I coached little league at one point and soccer currently, I can probably fix your computer or build you a new one, I built my son a treehouse, I have a good stable job that I’ve been doing for 15 years, and I’m getting tired of this run-on sentence.
Now, were you paying attention?
Smart people to hang around with
