My self-summary
Intelligent! Clever! Witty! Handy! Probably not too smart...

I'm a software developer, but not a geek. I don't do computer stuff or 'gaming' in my spare time.

I'm pretty damned fit, but I don't use it for competition. I don't run races, really. I did run my first race in 10 years in 2004, and SORT OF won it. First place with about 5 asterisks. And I'm looking for someone similarly fit because most of what I really like to do involves covering lots of ground under my own power. And it's cool if you're racy. You could probably get me to race sometimes if you twist my arm. Sometimes the spectacle is kinda... fun.

I'm pretty independent (which probably has something to do with why I'm never-married at this late date). I don't cruise bars, I don't tailgate, or go to church, or political rallies, or volunteer, or belong to any clubs (though sometimes I find myself in a running group).

I'm not at all a winter person, but I'm even less an indoors-person, so I find myself braving the cold, to some 'degree' anyways. Mostly I've been doing local hikes with microspikes. But maybe I'll get bored with that and get snowshoes or XC skis or something before warmer weather returns. Or even get back into snowboarding, though I'm hesitant. The ski resort thing just seems a bit hectic for me. I don't need that on the weekend.

Summer is where I belong. Every weekend I'm somewhere else. I've climbed most of the fourteeners, and MAYBE I'll finish them off this summer, or maybe never. And I have kind of a lot of time off work this year, and plans to hike some of the highest peaks in the various western states, and see cool stuff in between. Does this sound good to you? Probably not, but if it does, maybe you should say 'hey'.

Lastly, but most importantly, I have a certain sort of wit or humor. I've commented on most of my question-answers on here. Maybe read some of them, and see whether I'm the kinda person who might get on your nerves. Probably I am. But if I'm not...
What I’m doing with my life
Maintainin'.
I’m really good at
I'm really good at editing. I'm pretty good at running, and mountain biking and tennis and fishing and road trips. And a certain sort of humor.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm pretty existential.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Murakami is my favorite fiction author. Mostly I read stuff on wikipedia about e.g. megafauna, or dinosaur comics. Have you read dinosaur comics?

I have a 50" flatscreen. It's in a box (I always keep the box because I seem to move EVERY YEAR), and my stereo is currently on top of it. So, yes, a TV can STILL BE FURNITURE in this modern world we live in.

Recent musical favorites are La Luz, Ezra Furman, the newest Liars album, Little Red Lung, really, a lot of 'random' stuff, but I'm quite picky. I don't like most of the stuff the hip kids are listening to. If it's at Red Rocks, probably it's not my thing. And that's not because I'm TRYING to be different. I'm just... different.

I can't imagine why it would matter what kind of food I like. I don't eat red meat, but I don't care if you do. If you care if I eat red meat (which I don't) or chicken or fish (which I do), then probably that's kind of annoying.
The six things I could never do without
I don't know. I really need to have some decent mountains nearby, I guess. I really hate wintry weather, almost enough to live someplace low and south (I've tried it), but I just gotta have me some mountains. Maybe that's about it.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
a way out.
On a typical Friday night I am
man, nothin' much. Maybe that's where you come in.
You should message me if
You know fun stuff to do in wintertime besides just the ski resort grind.
