My self-summary
Back to being single after nearly a decade. Mostly happy, somewhat sleepy, terribly funny. I will probably confuse you (I was once told that I have about 75% of a conversation with the remainder occurring in my head). Nearly infinite capacity for snark, miniscule capacity for mean (which is generally unused). Oh yes, and I sometimes type incomplete sentences and put periods at the end of them.

Exactly one dog I have ever met didn't like me, and that wasn't my fault (good story though, if you want to ask). I have yet to meet an unfriendly cat, guinea pig, hamster, horse, ferret, or other mammal commonly kept by humans.

I am not currently boyfriend material (what with the whole not having a wife anymore thing to deal with)I am available as a fun date or a pretty awesome friend. If you have fun on our first date, let's have a second date, and so on. Also, I'm not bitter and I didn't date for a loooong time to ensure that I'm being fair to you.

I'm emotionally stable and capable of checking my baggage although, by now, my remaining baggage fits neatly in the overhead compartment.

I'm not saying never again, just not now.
What I’m doing with my life
I have a job with the City of Chicago that I enjoy enormously. I will even talk about it if I have had an hour or three to cool down after work.

I'm trying to rebuild a social life as many of my friends are now parents and super-busy. I have been rebuilding through volunteering and finding different interest based groups to check out. So far, so good.
I’m really good at
As it turns out, I'm pretty good at dating and sort of awesome at all that listening I do
being a kick-ass uncle
seeing the absurd in the familiar (which should totally be a word in German or Sanskrit or something)
ridiculousity (also making up words)
obscure references
procrastinating
Reading people
Reading books
Hijinks
Making chicken soup in a pressure cooker, from scratch
Making homemade pizza also from scratch (except the sauce, I don't boil the tomatoes down but I do combine ingredients)
Wearing interesting socks
Sticking it to the man. Really.
The first things people usually notice about me
Either my eyes, my smile or my sexy, sexy behind.

The aquarium with fake jellyfish, Super Grover, and Gary the Mold-A-Rama lion on my desk at work.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
1. Yes, I have favorite books. Many of them. We'll discuss later.
2. Caddyshack, The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus, Wet Hot American Summer and more that I don't feel like typing now.
3. The Simpsons (still), Buffy, Dr. Who (original and re-boot), edit: had to remove Sherlock as series three makes baby Jesus cry, cough Downton Abbey cough, Nature, Brooklyn 99. I dislike anti-heroes in television.
4. If it's good, I'll listen. Favorites change from hour to hour. I tend to like music but don't really care enough to differentiate that like into taste.
Exceptions: Tilly and the Wall is awesome. So is The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald.
5. I will only eat things that were once alive, like plants and animals. And salt, it's a rock we eat, how crazy is that?
The six things I could never do without
1. A towel
2. A daily dose of absurdity, usually in the form of my socks
3. Lemonade/Iced Tea from Trader Joe's
4. Rain and Thunderstorms
5. The printed word
6. Hammocks
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Things that may never happen
Death and the nature of consciousness and how they interact
The nature of time
Danger
Repelling Zombies/Commies
How lucky I am to live in an age of miracles and wonders
What would Dream of the Endless do? (Especially since we now have the same first name)
Eating rocks and how crazy that is
How to beat you at Scrabble or Words with Friends
Why is there no Words with Fiends, it could be nice for jail inmates or demons.
Why so many women include a picture of themselves at a gun range in their profiles
Why so many people misunderstand the "most private thing you'll admit" question. It's not asking your most private thing. It's asking for the most private you'll admit. The answer to that can not logically be, "it's too private" if you answered any other questions!
Okay, I just spent 30 minutes moderating photos for OkCupid. Dear God, ladies I am so so sorry. We're not all like that. I swear I'm not like that. Guys are seriously the pits.
Why does Vivaldi's Spring Concerto make me weep like I'm at a puppy funeral?
At what point did I just start enjoying things non-sarcastically and un-ironically and does that mean I'm old now? (probably has a lot to do with my niece and nephew operating as fully functional independent units, seeing things through a child's eyes will definitely hit reset on the old sarcasmotron 3400)
On a typical Friday night I am
Kind of crabby. Or napping with my cats.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have the second most hilarious disease on the planet, Narcolepsy (Tourett's is funnier) and I hate it. Really really hate it. And I do not have severe symptoms. I am happy to answer questions about it if you are curious.

I have written several programs for the Bozoputer.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 31–45
  • Near me
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
You are in Chicago or 1) a reasonable distance from CTA/Metra or 2) love to drive into Chicago.

Your list of six things includes something I haven't seen in a list before.

You'll shave your head. (don't know why, but I think bald women are the bee's knees.)

Eclectic is not a word you would use to describe yourself or your taste. Not that there's anything wrong with varied or wide-ranging taste, I'm just so freaking tired of that word.

You are poised on the precipice of world domination and need a good henchman. I'm pretty damn loyal, strong and smart. I also have no interest in ruling anything larger than a city so I'll not stab you in the back or betray you. Just don't remove my brain for use in a robot body.

You don't think it's edgy to describe yourself as un-PC. C'mon really? Saying you're un-PC in 2014 is utterly meaningless. Unless you're just trying to say you're a rude jerkface.

The End.
