My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
So, you've been looking through these profiles trying to find the Prince Charming that waits on you hand and foot and agrees with you blindly. I am not he!

Be forewarned that this individual:
*is a mischievous, practical joker
*Saves the serious side for work
*Never afraid to call someone out
*Never made friend or relationship decisions based on politics
*Equal friend to a communist, a libertarian, to the teetotaler and rampant user

This makes me a little unusual for the DC area - the land of the
hyper-opinionated ideologues

The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Celtic features - dimples, charm, and no, my eyes aren't brown.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books - My favorite book of all time is probably The Tale of Genji If you haven't read it, I heartily recommend it - such richness with a tapestry of romance and poetry woven together that I can only compare to Shakespeare in depth! That would be followed closely by Don Quixote another masterpiece.

I'm currently reading books on C++ & web development. Authors I have enjoyed reading are Miguel de Cervantes y Saavedra, Vladimir Nabokov,Louis L'Amour, Anais Nin,William Gibson, Isaac Asimov, Raymond Feist, Piers Anthony, Orson Scott Card, Frank Herbert to name a few. My bookshelves are divided into sections including: graphic arts & design, project & program management, history, historical fiction, cookbooks, computer networking, programming, computer security and finally, travel.

Movies - love a mix of classics, drama, guy movies, foreign films, great cinematography and witty wordplay. Dangerous Liaisons, Valmont, Pride & Prejudice, The Breakfast Club, A Midsummer Night's Dream, Braveheart, Seven Samurai, Terms of Endearment, anything James Bond. I also like foreign films & independent films and with the American Film Institute Silver so close by, I have been attending regularly.

No tv but netflix and equivalents yes. The Walking Dead, Dr Who, MI5, The Vampire Diaries, True Blood, Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones to name a few. I like watching TED, as any self respecting techie would proudly say. Yes, I'll admit to appreciating teenage vampire dramas. Secretly though, I am pining for more Legend of the Seeker and wish The Tudors had never ended!

I enjoy live music a great deal, Irish pub music, Acoustic guitar, rock/alternative, classical, trance/house/Drum and Bass. My favorite bands/artists are, by genre
(Alternative) Smashing Pumpkins, U2
(Trance) Robert Miles, DJ Tiesto, Paul Oakenfold (Classical) Rimsky-Korsakov
(Post-Wave) Future Islands
I enjoy exposure to new music, more recently that has been early alternative, post-punk, post-wave & garage-rock. If I am seeing shows, 99% of the time it is indie rock. Noting above, my favorite bands are Smashing Pumpkins and Future Islands, & also find Mumford & Sons rather sublime.

Often traversing Epicurious finding new recipes then trying them out. I have 20+ cookbooks too, so finding something fun to make is never much of a challenge. My baking though is mediocre, or worse; I don't attempt much beyond muffins, brownies, cheesecake or cookies.

The food I assemble vacillates between Pescatarian and Paleolithic ; I don't have anything against meat. It is all a matter of convenience and expedience. I generally do not eat fast food because I want to live a long time, and I believe in good nutrition.

I like Chardonnay, Riesling, Gewürztraminer, a mellow red like bardolino, a citrus Hefeweizen Bavarian-style. Please hold all American hefes - too well-traveled for that! I've also been trying out big reds more recently. Hey, it is good for your heart! :D In spite of appreciation, I drink little.

Theater I love but have never gone here in the US. Hopefully that will change soon because I adore Shakespeare. I want to go see Julius Caesar & Macbeth very much, not as much a fan of newer plays.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
If a disaster happened, I could live without everything except food, water and oxygen.

I have never owned a TV.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You have exuberance, charisma, empathy, brains, playfulness, and a sense of adventure. It wouldn't hurt if you brought the energy of Kara Thrace, the sharp tongue of an Elizabeth Bennett, and the brains of Temperance Brennan perhaps with the erudition of Camille Paglia thrown in for good measure.

No pressure!


And finally, as if this was not long enough... TL; DR
You are a professional dog-walker, and your idea of a fun first date after dinner activity includes playing with the dogs, as if you are one too. Thanks to past experience, I am going to say I'm not your type and wish you great luck in finding your fellow "furry" guyfriend :)
