First, a special NOTE: If by chance you are checking to see why I
looked at your profile, even though I'm very far away, or that I'm
a guy and you are too, be aware that some of us are volunteer
Moderators, and we are asked to review others profiles for
violations. It's not anything special one way or another, it's just
that SOMEONE flagged you for review. It could be that they thought
ill of you, or even that they thought "flagging" meant
"applauding." You might notice that one or more of your pictures
disappeared. Flagging and review would be why. Before you post them
again, read the rules on pictures. By the way, it takes a number of
votes to remove anything, so if something of yours is missing, that
does NOT mean that I personally voted to have it removed. End of
Actual profile starts here!
I am a writer, employed as a computer service technician, with a
novel brewing, and a few drawers full of poetry. Some of my songs
have actually been sold for actual money (not a lot) in South
Korea. Why is beyond my understanding, but it's funny as
Living alone now. Recovering from the divorce in progress is a big
job, but it is going well, since it's amicable. I have so much
painting and house overhaul to do!
Oh, and if at all possible, I intend to save the world.
I am rebellious, thoughtful, and philosophical
What I’m doing with my life
One part rebuilding, and one part continuation.
I've marked my status as Married, though I am legally separated, we
are in different houses. This particular site doesn't have as wide
a selection of status's as most. Some folks figure I'm married,
others would recognize the LEGAL (and expensive!), as well as the
real distinction. Anyway, my best to any and all, whether my
incomplete progress towards finalizing my divorce puts you off or
I'm trying to write my first novel, reworking and recording old and
new songs with my brothers, SLOWLY making my recently acquired
house look slightly less like the hiding place of a serial killer.
Everything is slow going, but mostly in the right direction.
I’m really good at
Reasoning in a balanced fashion. I am perhaps genetically
programmed for this, with an intelligence analyst father, and a
civil engineer grandfather.
I'm also fairly handy fixing things, though all too often I can fix
SOMEONE ELSE'S stuff, while my own remains mysterious!
The first things people usually notice about me
? I don't know. People don't usually SAY what the first thing they
notice about someone is. See? I'm pretty literal in responding to
questions. Maybe THAT would be what people pick up on most quickly.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'm trained as an Historian, so my personal library has a bunch of
history books, but I read mysteries and science fiction somewhat
voraciously. I wouldn't say I have a favorite book, unless you
include reference material: I do look at historical Atlases for
entertainment as well as education.
The six things I could never do without
There are THAT many things I need to have? I'm in big trouble! I
thought it was the usual hierarchy of needs, plus personal
preferences. I've HAD to do without plenty of things, so I don't
think I could give this a serious answer.
my mind, and my soul.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to SAY things. I'm a writer, after all. Also, as a musician,
I'm usually busy pondering a new Bass line for something I'm
working on, writing a new song, trying to think of new subjects to
talk about in song, poetry or novel form.
Sex, too, I'm reasonably normal in that respect. I don't fit the
"every seven seconds" nonsense, or even the slightly more
believable "several times a day" myth. I'd rather leave off
thinking about it, for when I can be doing it. Otherwise, I'll
probably crash my car, or smash my fingers in the machines I'm
trying to fix.
On a typical Friday night I am
Recovering from the week of work! I'm disinclined to fight the sea
of people trying to squash their romantic lives into Friday and
If you want to know what I would do if the other yokels WEREN'T
filling the roads and lengthening the lines at various venues, I'd
probably be going to live theatre performances, some dancing, and
even eating out occasionally, if I could afford it. Times are tight
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Too difficult for a literal person like me to figure out what the
MOST private thing would be. This is kind of a "dare " question,
and I don't respond to dares in an amicable fashion, as a
With people I'm speaking to, I'm fairly open about my life. I would
restrain myself from bringing up things I suspected would make
others uncomfortable, but if someone asks, I'm most likely to
answer logically and completely.
Perhaps something in this area:
I have a very short "bucket list." It includes
1. to finish and record as many of my songs as possible, to finish
all of my personal writing projects.
2. to develop the opportunity to finally have a high tea, using my
exquisite small collection of Wedgwood china and glassware.
3. to find my first real, and final life mate.
You should message me if
If you want to, I guess.
