(I changed my photo from the one taken with Steve Wozniak because some didn't know who was who. This one features my "stubble" look from a couple of years ago))
WARNING! What you are about to read isn't your standard everyday OKC profile; if you're looking a generic-type man, move on. I'm unique, but in a good way (so I've been told).
It is not possible to distill a person down to a small series of answers to OkCupid questions, so instead, I'll offer:
24 or so random facts about me (some little known)
I'm a Chocoholic. Big time.
I'm an Incurable Romantic.
I currently have 3 cats who can perform a variety of tricks. One even plays the piano.
I was EXTREMELY allergic to cats and hated them, but "cats" were a non-negotiable requirement for my former S.O.. When we parted, I kept the cats. I'm no longer allergic to them any more -- the constant exposure acted like allergy shots.
I was first interviewed on TV when I was about 9. Since then, I've been interviewed on TV, radio, and newspapers several times. Once the National Enquirer paid me for an interview. I don't feel famous, and I'm not.
I've never been interviewed by NPR, but I was asked to read the galley-proof for the memoirs of a very well-known NPR personality. (I declined, as I didn't feel qualified)
I'm afraid of heights, but still managed to get my pilots' license.
I believe one should stay inside an airplane, and not willingly jump out.
Al Gore didn't invent the Internet. I know this because I wrote part of the proposal to build it.
I'm a Lefty. Lefties are the only ones in their Right minds.
I once was paid as an escort (no, I know what you're thinking) -- a *tour* escort -- taking a large group of seniors to Seattle & Vancouver's World Fair.
I sing badly, but somehow got into my high school's Acapella and Madrigal choirs (I think they were desperate). I almost got kicked out for yawning during a concert.
I'm a "supertaster" which means my taste buds are extra sensitive to the bitter compounds found in some vegetables -- especially broccoli & Brussels Sprouts. I don't eat broccoli (if a former President didn't like it, I guess it's OK for me not to either) Yuck! So there!
I've been tested and my hearing is twice as sensitive as "normal". Loud sound is painful, and I often wear earplugs at movies, dances, and concerts.
I have two left feet and am incredibly shy, yet I regularly get up before large groups of people and teach them to dance.
Did I mention I'm a klutz?
I coached high school wrestling for several years.
I've been privileged to know several Olympic athletes. I'm absolutely bowed over by their drive and dedication. Even if I had superb athletic skill (I'm a klutz, remember?), I couldn't do what they do, mentally.
I was a computer geek before the term was invented.
I like my Macintosh, and dislike those Windows Pee-Cees.
I'm a "Folkie". Especially the live, acoustic kind.
In Western astrology, I'm a Capricorn; in Eastern, a Rat. Live with it.
Part of my anatomy made Michigan medical history. Really. (How about that for a teaser?)
"Do not mistake activity for achievement". Found this in a fortune cookie several years ago. Great advice and my favorite motto.
I am -?-, -??-, and _???!
"Grow old with me -- the best is yet to come" and I'm looking forward to every new day.
* I look younger than I am (I'm really 105)...
* I don't act my age. Age is just a number. (Peter Pan: "I won't grow up...")
* I'm quite shy around members of the opposite sex...
*What is Megan Purr-Purr really thinking when she gives me that look.
*How did the most profound truth I've learned end up in a fortune-cookie I got several years ago?
*Why will OKCupid suggest someone 700 or more miles away when both of our "looking for" filters are set to "Near me"? Or why OKC suggests "You might like" a 33 yr old (I'm looking for a partner, not a daughter!).
*Why can't OKC do math? How can I for example be a 98% Match and 16% Enemy at the same time?
"I’m an empty essay... fill me out!"
Message me if you'd like to help.
Oh, I don't want to seem overly pedantic, but:
Please don't bother to message if you don't have a profile photo. If you don't want me to know what you look like, why should I want to meet you to find out?

How does this violate our Photo Rules?
Thanks! We'll look into the issue soon.
