Likes: politics, sports, monkeys, my dogs, politeness,
intelligence, documentaries, good grammar, those who can hold their
own in a political/philosophical debate, newspapers and
occasionally, a highly caloric dessert. Dislikes - um, just the
opposite of the above. Oh and people that flash the peace sign in
I value being compassionate to others, including animals. I am a
strong advocate (but not a nut) for being kind to animals (i.e.
petitioning for significantly better treatment of factory farm
animals). I don't eat beef or pork, rarely chicken, sometimes
fish/seafood, but what you eat is up to you, of course.
What I’m doing with my life
Aside from my day job working for the government - lots of cool
stuff. You'll just have to ask!
I’m really good at

Breaking Bad, Arrested Development, Homeland, the Wire, Modern
Family, The Daily Show...
The six things I could never do without
Just need my iPhone. With it I'm sure I could hook up food, shoes,
pants, electricity etc. Oh and I need my dogs (Ernie and Tucker).
They're great little fellas.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Politics, social justice, the state of humankind, nuclear physics
(seriously), animal welfare, factory farming, the idea of learning
to play a musical instrument, what my dogs are thinking...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I like Coldplay - deal with it.
You should message me if
You're smart, sexy, witty, compassionate, believe in treating people (yes, even strangers) with respect and kindness, lean left or center-left on the political spectrum, and know what's going on in the world around you.
Or if you can bench press like 300 pounds - because that would be really impressive.
