....carry the 2, plus 16, let's see--I'm 443. Not bad.
What I’m doing with my life
Warning for all who enter: We all strive to make our profiles interesting and exciting. So okay, I'm probably interesting, but I'm pretty sure, I'm not traditionally exciting. Which is to say I am by nature sort of interior and maybe not explicitly exciting, not a gregarious, party-type. Fortunately (or "un" as the case may be), I "balance that out" with a greater-than-average quirk quotient. For some that combination is just fine--even fun--but I've read many profiles of outward-ish people and they're a bit intimidating so I'm just saying: for a red-painted night on the town, followed by naked hang-gliding and absinthe in war-torn Syria, I am not the man with the brush. More likely, I am the man who built the brush or tinted the paint. (wowee, should I uncork the smelling salts?)
To get on with it though, I'm otherwise tapping into my senses, emotions and intellect. striving to be responsible--to be better and make it better.
I’m really good at
I'm such a dilettante. I've never mastered anything, except perhaps having an awareness of the mixed up, sweet-bitter gifts of life. And I don't know how good I am, but I enjoy writing, editing, writing music, life-insights and beautiful relationships.
The first things people usually notice about me
i don't know. slender? mussed and unironed? sorta alt-ish?? I'm happy wearing jeans torn at the knee--but I also like to painstakingly patch them.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Everyone has so much to say here, but I'll contribute one each from the left-field bag:
book--wilfred the rat
film--the russians are coming, the russians are coming
show--pepe le pew
music--dirty pretty things
The six things I could never do without
needle and thread
the strong belief that we have to pitch in once we see injustice and unfairness if we expect solutions
I spend a lot of time thinking about
how i'm very very lucky to have my one and only wife and the sub-orbital life i stepped into. why it's impossible to trisect an angle and what is that cool approach my math teacher, Ms. Lapasha taught me for finding the square root
On a typical Friday night I am
preparing for saturday (I've a weird work schedule)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
1)Don't use copper cleaner on the bottoms of your pots. Switch to a few shakes of salt and a splash of white vinegar. 2)Even though I denied it, I did steal that dime from Jackie in first grade. 3)I think my belly button is lower than most people's. 4)I recently realized that apparently for years, when I shower I talk to myself about what part of my shower comes next--sort of like a play-by-play. And oh yes. 5)I am a poly, non-monogamous guy in an open-marriage. I'm completely open with my wife (and she with me), but neither of us publicly flaunt the lifestyle.
You should message me if
First of all, I can't see "likes," so message me rather than like me. Secondly --- I'll be honest. I will be very tortoise-y deliberate here. I'd love to meet someone who likes what I represent, who is kind and playful, but only after some nice "seems-like-we're-clicking" messages. And more truth be told, generally speaking, finding someone within a dozen or so years of my age in either direction might make sense. Finally, I know I don't have a pic and I know that increases the odds of anyone even reading to this point (wait. I mean THIS point), but I do have pics to share with you and I'm not hideous (oddly, I look a bit like the "outline man" in the photo box--you know, kind of straight-and-and-square standing, slender, with a tossed off do....) and I'll happily share, roots-to-toes, if we move to the exchange-y phase and so sorry about the hesitancy.
