Me..?.. I'm a pretty happy guy. Outdoorsey- perhaps a bit of a science dork at the same time. I just got my master's degree in salmon genetics, basically a fish biologist, finally - in a field I love, involves fish and the environment, and am looking for someone to just hang out with, share a laugh and see what kind of trouble we can stir up.
Live in a cool 2 bdr cottage all to meself with 2 goldfish ponds, I put together and 3 chickens, yep, I'm THAT idiot :).
I've decided to explore fine cooking more. Watching too many travel cooking shows and want to mix fennel and raw almonds, etc. Why Not? I really do enjoy cooking. It's art and experimental science you get to eat! Need more catfish.. more catfish! And my brother just got a surfboard I need to teach him to ride. shame the ocean is so close, but the waves are hours away.
I was born in England, but I've been in Washington most of my life and love it here - the mountains, the ocean, the desert, even the rain. I tend to go boating with my brother or mini-golfing with my dad almost once a week. I used to drive a cute '66 falcon futura with a ski rack on top that held my windsurfers. But alas, she's been put out to pasture (not literally). I always loved 6o's American cars, but now it's Toyota matrix and love it!
Let's see... I used to be in a punk band in college, now I play banjo and guitar. I was born in England, so I hold two passports which is nice for traveling Europe. I love cooking and gardening. I am addicted to music and enjoy most styles though I guess I'm more into pop/new wave for listening to, though now I play more acoustic folky, even irish stuff.
I've been an Alaskan fisherman, a Seattle writer, an English bartender and a French street musician. I like people who have their own thing going on - hobbies, for example. I don't care what it is as long as you have a passion for something. I love seeing live bands or just renting a video. I'm pretty easy going and unlike some people I don't get upset with traffic, I just turn up the radio and nothing really sets me off on a rant.
I enjoy meeting new people and am ready to see where it leads. I've got a lot of stories of my adventures so I can keep the conversation going, but I am curious and a good listener. I like to have fun (yeah, people seem to list that, like it's so unusual) so... as long as you enjoy life and have some hobbies, try me.
I just discovered the word "blithe"... and I like it.
I like my beer on the weekends (after a good, long day of fun) and coffee or tea in the morning. Reminds me , time start another batch of homebrew, maybe a hard cider after that.
I have met a few really cool people this way, but I'm still looking. It's been fun so I'm always up to meet more. I just want to keep trying 'till it's right. I don't have a "type" really; as long as you're happy with who you are, that's a big step. Maybe you decide what I should look for.
