My self-summary
"Abstinence engenders maladies" -- Shakespeare

Tried creating a new profile, but the voyage of self discovery and improvement means I'm not the man I was even just a couple years ago.

My life is a revolving costume cocktail party. While libations do play an important role, company is critical.
What I’m doing with my life
I play music, spend time with the puppy, send off a resume once in a while.
I’m really good at
Findind quick solutions.
Making things better.
Enabling.
Providing a good time.
Drinking.
Cuddling.
The first things people usually notice about me
That would be the beard, Bob.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I <3 books, but haven't been reading much recently. Lots of sci-fi, cyberpunk, classics, noir. In the age of ebooks, it makes it difficult to see someone's soul on a bookshelf, mine included...

I'm a movie whore. Don't make it to the theater nearly enough, but will probably start spending weekends hibernating and catching up on things soon. Noir, sci-fi, period pieces.

Recently I've been enveloped in the Avengers universe, both movies and TV. The story threads that exist between the separate entities fascinate me.

Most of the music I own is old. Lots of industrial and swing with some other stuff thrown in. It's not uncommon for me to throw a random streaming trance/electronica station when I'm working. It gives my mind something to do, but isn't distinctive enough to be distracting.

Food = yes. I eat well at work. We typically go out 3 days/week to decent restaurants. It's not uncommon for me to drag friends out to dinner so I can fill the gaps for the few things my coworkers won't eat. Sushi, Indian, Thai, Vietnamese, Chinese, Cuban, Italian, American, German, all of it!
The six things I could never do without
This is tough, as I've lived with nothing.

1) My hitchiker's guide. (iPad) I use it all the time for everything.

2) A decent bed

3) Alone time

4) Biscuits and cheese. That is not a euphemism. Blood sugar crashes are a bitch.

5) Intimate contact. While it won't kill me if I don't have it, life is pretty unpleasant otherwise.

6) Mandolin!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why don't more companies allow dogs?
Will my next job require pants?
Can I call it work if it doesn't cause calluses?
Do I want to pack up the dog and busk dressed as a leprechaun outside the Guinness brewery in Dublin?
On a typical Friday night I am
Sitting at home playing music.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm pretty when I'm drunk.
You should message me if
You're up for a good time.

You want to balance lazy nights in with crazy nights out.

You think "Yes" is the sexiest word ever.
