My self-summary
I think I need to apologize. Based on one of the most common themes I read in many profiles, it seems that as a male I am supposed to have at least one shirtless bathroom photo. Sorry, that's more of a second date kind of thing.

I'm trying to get back to a lot of the things that I enjoyed doing in the past: playing guitar and writing songs, and outdoor activities. I've also been trying to get back into drawing, but making the time has been an issue for me.

(This space left intentionally blank)

(End of blank section)

My user name may need explaining, but I decided to remove the explanation from my profile. You will either get it or you won't. When you figure it out it will make me sound geeky, but I know what I like and I know who I am, and I offer no apologies for it. (Except for the shirtless photo issue. I apologize profusely for that, but you will have to deal with disapointment.)

I still enjoy playing with Legos. I love the building and creating. I have most of them organized by colors and/or specialty pieces. It's great fun, and a great outlet.

It seems weird to me to state what I am looking for, as if I am putting in an order. I have a few types of women that I tend to be drawn to, and different traits that I prefer as well. But that doesn't mean that I won't connect with someone who has different qualities. Many of my best friends would not be matched up with me if there was a site to find friends; you just never know who you will connect with, so why limit ourselves?

To paraphrase a line from my favorite movie: "If you are reading this, and you've come this far, maybe you would like to come a little further." So thanks for taking the chance by viewing my profile. If you'd like to take the chance and read on, and if you like what you read, then I'd like to hear from you.

When I worked with young people I would joke around a lot, so sometimes they weren't sure if I was being serious or not. I finally came up with this guideline; The first answer I give you is usually a joke. Each subsequent answer is 'more true'. So maybe you should take my profile with a grain of salt, whatever that means. But don't each too much salt, cause it's bad for you.
What I’m doing with my life
'Getting on with my life' is the first answer that popped into my head. But im trying to instill my life with more purpose than just getting by. I strive to help peopke, amd always feel that i can do more. For my job I work with computers for a local business. I repair computers and troubleshoot related issues. Sometimes I get to travel around the nearby area, which is nice.

I have 2 boys that stay with me half the week. I certainly enjoy when they are with me, but it is also nice to have time for myself.

I recently got a recording program for my computer so I can record my songs. I am also trying to draw more. I like doing abstract designs, as well as drawing trees.

Right now I am concentrating on organizing my house, and getting rid of a lot of things that I don't need. (You really got interested with that when organizing part, didn't you?)

I like hiking in upper park, and want to mountain bike more.
I’m really good at
Playing guitar and song-writing. I also have a good sense of humor. It's very sarcastic, which is hard for some people to get used to.

I am very skilled at making goofy faces at kids. I will challenge anyone at this, even Jim Carrey. I may lose, but I am confident that I can compete at that level.

Most of my jobs have involved working with kids on some level, and I have a natural talent for relating to kids.

If you put me in front of 100 or more kids, with no time to prepare, I will get them quiet and occupy them for about 10 minutes. For more time I will need a little warning.

I am not an egotistical person, but I am very confident in the things that I know I do well. But it is not false confidence.

I also make a mean sandwich.
The first things people usually notice about me
Physically it would probably be my freckles. Once you talk to me it's my pleasant attitude and my sense of humor.

People also say that I look young for my age. Which of course is nice. It's just interesting to me that in my 20's people thought I looked older, then at some point that changed. But it's ok, cause when people tell me that I look younger I just yell at them to 'Get Off My Lawn!' And they usually go away.

But if I'm wearing a tight cut-off t-shirt it's my belly button. It's amazing!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My favorite movies are Shawshank Redemption, Dances with Wolves, original Star Wars Trilogy, Back to the Future, Indiana Jones, Fight Club, Real Genius, Dumb and Dumber, Naked Gun/Police Squad, WALL-E, Heart And Souls, Elizabethtown, to name a few.

Movies that I like that get a little better every time I see them: Groundhog Day, Office Space, The Usual Suspects, Stranger Than Fiction, Primal Fear, Field of Dreams, The Truman Show. (One of the songs I wrote that I am very proud of was inspired by The Truman Show.)

I like good romantic movies as well, like Sleepless in Seattle, Before Sunrise, When Harry Met Sally, Fools Rush In, and While You Were Sleeping.

One of my guilty favorites is Hudson Hawk. It's really dumb, but really funny. I have others like that as well, what about you? Tell me a movie you really like, but is really dumb.

I reread the Harry Potter series every so often. They are really enjoyable, and I don't consider them kids books. I like some science fiction like Arthur C Clarke. Also like Stephen King, although haven't read much of his recent stuff. In General I will like a book that sucks you in, and makes it difficult for you to put it down.

I've been watching How I met your mother, Fringe, Person of Interest, Big Bang Theory, The Walking Dead, New Girl, and Simpsons. I recently gave up cable, so I'm watching shows on Netflix or DVD. Shows that are off the air but I still like: West Wing, Sienfeld, News Radio, Freaks and Geeks, Friends, Scrubs, Sports Night, and Sifl and Olly. (I will have to explain that one, it's a little different.)
Even if I don't have my boys I have been known to watch Phineas and Ferb. If you haven't seen it give it a try; It's very funny.

My two favorite bands are either Barenaked Ladies, or Trashcan Sinatras, depending on who I have listened to most recently. If you are within driving distance see BNL live; they have an ongoing conversation with the audience, and do a few improv songs each show. But you can't throw Mac and Cheese anymore, which I understand, but it's still a little sad. And 'Cake' by Trashcan Sinatras is one of my favorite albums. Check out what Frank Sinatras family thought about the name.

But I also like INXS, Dave Matthews Band, The Waterwalk, Tears for Fears, XTC, Extreme, Eric Johnson, The Sundays, Michael Penn, Beatles, Indigo Girls, Weird Al, Duran Duran, The Outfield, and Queensryche. I enjoy a lot of '80's stuff as well, the good as well as the bad. Some newer bands that I'm starting to get into are Foster the People, Phoenix, Haim, Empire of the Sun, Bastille, Two Door Cinema Club, The 1975, and Vampire Weekend.
The six things I could never do without
I'm gonna skip the actual things that I couldn't live without, and focus on the things that are essential to me, even if they are not required for my survival.

My boys
Music
Friends
My fond memories
Personal time
My guitar.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My kids.

How I can be a better person.

A book that I have been wanting to write for years. It's loosely based on my years working at a summer camp. But one problem is that there are only so many ways to say 'he/she said sarcastically.'

How to solve all the words ills. (I've almost figured it out.)
Related to that thought; I think about a line from one of the Star Trek movies a lot. (No, no, don't go...) "The acquisition of wealth is no longer the driving force in our lives. ...We work to better ourselves ...and the rest of humanity." How can we get to that point without using any of the dreaded 'isms'?

Imagining how some of the songs I've writen would sound once I get them recorded. They sound amazing in my head.

And honestly, I also think about sex as well.
On a typical Friday night I am
I could be telling myself that I'm going to go out, but really end up on the couch telling myself that I should really get to bed when it's only 9pm. Or playing with Lego's, wrestling, and watching movies with my boys. But its never 'typical'.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I get a little weepy during parts of the following movies:

Forrest Gump; When Bubba dies, and when Jenny and Forrest wade through the water to see each other;

Field of Dreams, when he says to his dad 'you wanna have a catch?';

Star Wars, when Han Solo comes back to help Luke blow up the death star;

Die Hard, when John McClane says Yippi-ki-a...
OK, that one was a joke, felt like I was getting a little too deep.

But the other ones get to me a bit because of the strong bond two people can have.

Sadly, I think that a very small reason for my marriage ending is that I could not live up to Edward, the Sparkly Vampire. I am perfectly ok with that.

I'm not ashamed to say that I like fruity foo-foo drinks. Don't get me wrong, I like many types of beers and often enjoy wine. But I also like drinks that just taste good, and I don't care if people have a problem with that, because damn they're good! And I won't surrender my dude card for that; I think it takes a real man to stand up and say 'I like fruity foo-foo drinks!'.
I’m looking for

  • Near me

You should message me if
You would like to know more and think we may have something in common. It's ok if at some point we realize it wouldn't work. That's what this is all for. (Aside from harmless stalking, of course.)

You should also message me if you just can't stop thinking about my belly button. It's ok to admit it, you're only human.
