My self-summary
I am definitely a big picture kind of person. Especially when I'm on a roll with a project. That sometimes makes it look like I'm in my own little world, but I'm here. I'll snap out of it as soon as I ... do this one thing...

I have been divorced for several years now. I have three kids ranging in age from 18 to 11. I love them and they keep me sane, at least on the weekends when they are with me. I have a strict policy of not introducing my kids to whomever I am dating until the time is right, and that is usually a while and in a neutral location. It just makes sense to me.

I prefer to follow current events and politics over following professional sports. I would rather play sports than watch.
What I’m doing with my life
Contemplating a Master's Degree.

On the more mundane side I spend my days in front of a computer putting together textbooks at a publishing company. It is worthwhile work, we make textbooks for the eldercare industry. It pays the bills, and it's really a great place to work. It must be a great place to work, I've been there nearly 15 years or...maybe it's my presence that makes it great?

On the personal side I am working on being in the moment. Narrowing my priorities, trying not to over-extend myself.

Trying to fit more cycling into my life along with getting back on the skateboard.
I’m really good at
I am good at keeping my word.

I really enjoy working with my hands making things or fixing things.

Sort of following a recipe. The results are almost always good.

Taking on new ideas.
The first things people usually notice about me
I have absolutely no idea. I am told that I am intimidating at first. I suppose that is because of my dry sense of humor and shaved head?
Actually the more I think about it, it's probably my 10 pound miniature rat terrier. I often have to say "My eyes are up here!" He is easier on the eyes than I am, so I understand.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I like biographies, textbooks, mostly non-fiction. Of course all the prerequisites from youth: LOTR, Dune... so on and so forth. Recently read Descartes Bones, that was interesting. Just started Cat's Cradle by Vonnegut, after enjoying Slaughterhouse 5.

I'm open to just about any movie. It's terrible because I tend to become invested in a movie within the first 10 minutes, and I have to see it through. Because of that I have watched many terrible movies, and have no regrets. It's the commitophile in me.

With netflix it's great to be able to watch a whole series without missing a show. Yup, I tend to binge-watch a series that I like. I recently watched Shameless(UK), and that was fantastic. I prefer sci-fi, but will enjoy anything thought provoking. I love a good documentary.

I'll be honest and say my music tastes have stagnated. I don't have much music in my life anymore. I do tend towards more punk and classic rock. I am also fond of bluegrass and some country. I generally avoid the over-marketed flavor-of-the-day type stuff. Having said that, I would like more music in my life. Send me a suggestion, and I'll give it a listen.

And here is what my iPod says: the transplants, tim armstrong, sublime, the beatles, the doors, social distortion, red hot chili peppers, this listing of shit is boring, offspring, nirvana, no cash, minor threat, leftover crack, janis joplin, green day, flogging molly, eagles, dropkick murphys, the distillers, cypress hill, aggrolites and so on and so forth.

Food? I'm open to anything. I will say I am craving some cafeteria food right now. Yes, that is odd, but I have fond childhood memories associated with BIA cafeteria food.

Local breweries trounce anything from Budweiser and the ilk. Marble Red is like the nectar of the gods, no it is the nectar for the gods. A sandwich from Relish is preferred over some chain fast-food joint.
The six things I could never do without
My kids, tomorrow, shoes(I have sensitive feet), inspiration, seasons, and spare moments.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The hamster wheel and why we are on it. Looking forward to getting off the hamster wheel and start doing art full time.

Whether ideals truly exist. I mean that nothing is perfect. Everything is flawed, and that makes it beautiful. Some things from a distance look perfect, but on closer inspection it appears to have been oversold. I can live with imperfection.

Visiting far flung places and integrating into new societies.

How things have evolved to become what they are. I mean things, like keyboards, mice, cups, spoons, etc.. Basically I wonder about all the things we take for granted, and that once upon a time it was a huge breakthrough for someone.

Possibly taking up throwing clay. I know I would enjoy it, and be really good at it.
On a typical Friday night I am
It's kidtime for me on the weekends so usually I'm cooking dinner and unwinding from the week. Then the weekend is usually filled with kid activities.

Update- I am finding more free time on the weekends. As the little ones get older they are increasingly having plans of their own. It's a little disheartening, but I understand. They need to start sprouting their little wings.

You should message me if
You want a partner in crime.

You want to try to get me to like stouts or other non-hoppy beverages(that's a big challenge, I'm not sure you are up for it).

You have something new to introduce me to.
