Really been enjoying doing things like floating down the Clackamas, learning to rock climb and playing games designed for 3rd graders in someone's back yard while we barbecue and have a drink or two. I have a great group of friends (none of whom I want to date) and a pretty satisfying job, but it'd be fun to go on some dates and potentially meet someone cool.
I like referencing movies and good television. If that sort of thing annoys you, we're probably not a good match. I feel like there is a background soundtrack most of the time in my head spitting out random lines from Arrested Development, Archer, The Big Lebowski, etc. and it makes me laugh. I like humor that makes pretty square-cut folks cringe on occasion.
Bonus points if you use the phrase "shiny" and can passably swear in Mandarin. Or if you at least get what I'm referencing. :)
Hansel: So I'm rappelling down Mount Vesuvius when suddenly I slip, and I start to fall. Just falling, ahh ahh, I'll never forget the terror. When suddenly I realize "Holy shit, Hansel, haven't you been smoking Peyote for six straight days, and couldn't some of this maybe be in your head?"
Derek Zoolander: And?
Hansel: And it was. I was totally fine. I've never even been to Mount Vesuvius.
Scrabble & Boggle
I'm an okay musician -- I wouldn't classify it as something I'm "really good at," though
I may be the one guy on here who really likes to shop
anything by braughtigan, bukowski, palahniuk, hemingway, james clavell, heinlein, niven, hiaasen, david foster wallace, patrick rothfuss, stephen king, steinbeck, neruda, whitman
six feet under, breaking bad, mad men, archer, frisky dingo, athf, the office, parks and rec, shitty reality tv (i'll admit it), it's always sunny in philadelphia, workaholics, the league, traffic lights, sherlock (bbc), house.
music: i'm all over the board, sorry portland. my shuffle as I'm driving is likely to pop out any of the following: the xx, hopsin, deathcab, iron & wine, aesop rock, sage francis, led zeppelin, the beatles, the blow, jay z, comedy records, elliott smith, heatmiser, hazel, pond, friends' bands, wesley willis, childish gambino, the shins, cage, astronautilus, why?, deltron 3030, hall and oates, kenny loggins, bright eyes, and anything your mom played me during naughty time the previous night.
My next great adventure, what I want to cook, a fun place to take my dogs...or I combine them: an adventurous place to cook my dogs. Kidding.
Why are there so many pictures of women with fake mustaches and/or jumping?
I think a lot about how awesome sugar snap peas are. For real.
Why hasn't PowerBall decided I should win, even when I don't play?
This is due to the fact that I have achieved 27th level wizard status in the Church of Scientology. Tom Cruise folds my socks and fetches me delicious pastries on the regular.
I have a three year old son who lives full-time with his mom and her ex-wife. She wasn't supposed to be able to have kids and always wanted to be a mom. Nature: 0, Me:1
To clarify the above statement, I play an active role (both financially and in hanging out) in my son's life. I just don't have him day-to-day, so I don't really know what it's like to be a single dad. He doesn't stay over with me, though I'd imagine when he gets older he may want to hang out in that fashion, which will be rad. As it is, though, he lives full time with his moms and we've all got a great relationship. My son's mom wasn't supposed to be able to have any kids due to a physical condition, so it was a happy accident. And, yes, this means I knocked up a lesbian. Though, I pretty much feel like most people are on some kind of sliding scale, because she obviously had sex with me. Or maybe I just look like a woman. I don't know. :) But he's a rad kid, and the world is better for having him in it.
I'm not looking for nor interested in hook-ups. I'm looking for Mrs. Rad, and I'm willing to wait. We're both worth it :)
That said, I hate writing out-of-the-blue messages. And I'm not very good at it. But I can probably make you laugh until you fear peeing your pants in person. Unless you have no fear of peeing your pants. In which case, many elderly people want to know your secret.
Also, don't be sad when I repeatedly destroy your face at Boggle and/or Scrabble. It's not your fault; it happens to everyone.
