My self-summary
I live in the Italian Market area of South Philadelphia with my son who lives with me part of the week and share the house full-time with my black Lab. Used to have a hamster but he recently departed for Hamster Heaven.
Native Philadelphian who was born and raised in Gray's Ferry and love living in the city because I cannot cook and have a plethora of restaurants and bars that are happy to do so for me.
My work used to take me to NYC four or five days a week but now only one or two days, so I have a lot of experience riding Amtrak. Here's a question for you: when you stand on the platform waiting for your Amtrak train, do you hang near the area that will be the front middle or rear of the train?
What I’m doing with my life
Working, having fun with my son, teaching him the value of manners and chivalry, working, having fun, rinse, repeat. I'll have to try this yoga thing you all are talking about. There are a few common buzzwords so many of you say that makes me have visions of you in your "LBD" eating "sushi" and drinking "wine" while doing "yoga" just after you are "traveling the world."
I’m really good at
People watching and creating elaborate stories about their lives that entertain me.
The first things people usually notice about me
Eyes and that I am rarely quiet. Especially after a couple of pints for the latter.

My life requires a soundtrack and my tastes vary but are rarely of the Top 40 flavor.
Recent shows attended:

The furthest I've traveled to see a band was Northern Ireland to see Fugazi at The Nerve Center in Derry.

The six things I could never do without
Son
IPAs or a great Belgian
My dog
iPhone
IPad mini
Sunglasses but I do not wear them at night.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Life. How it works and what I am meant to do.
On a typical Friday night I am
When I have my son, he loves eating snow crabs so many times we are at Anastacia's feeding his need and during the weekends without him, I am hanging with friends enjoying a well deserved pint at a local happy hour.
I'd rather have you there beside me or both of us doing your favorite Friday activity.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have a couple quirky rituals. One is that I always put my left sock on prior to my right one.

You are in tune with yourself and have a balance throughout your life.
You are not hung up on what situation led you to become single again.
You are looking at your life with an open mind and thrive on trying and learning new things.
You are not filled with inane drama.
You want to let yourself relax, laugh and have a good time.
