Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I suppose i find that ordinary life is full of funny little
absurdities that if viewed from different perspectives can be quite
hilarious. But not everything is so funny. War, poverty, racism,
sexism, the mullet hair cut are no laughing matters. Laughing,
especially the kind that causes you to have hiccups, indigestion or
g*d4bid, unanticipated flatulence is just not worth it. The silent
laugh with mouth agape and teeth showing is sufficient for most
occasions. I especially enjoy the use of the "0h that's too funny"
grin: eyes wide, nod of head and pursing of lips and raised cheeks
I do not want to give the impression that l think life is one big
joke. I have lived and worked in some seriously not funny places
with more than their share of premature death, disease, destruction
and dust. I am not a big fan of a lot of dust. The sneezing and
coughing it causes really interferes with a good laugh.
If you'd like to meet for a laugh or some serious smirking lemme
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Enjoying it as much as I can. I have worked in the international
development field for over 20 years, which has afforded many
opportunities to get to know this planet and many of its
inhabitants. I continue to learn a lot through first hand
observation and by building relationships.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Getting along with other homo sapien sapiens and canines.

sharing meals and drinks with interesting people and getting to
know them more deeply.
Going to parties and throwing them. I am a talented partyer and

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I really liked The Wire and now I am into Breaking Bad. I find them
to be similarly twisted shows about American culture. Both shows
tell the tale of people, cities, underworld, corruption, politics,
law and order and the chaos that lurks underneath. I am an avid
reader and keep up with the Atlantic Monthly, Harpers, New Yorker
and less so with the NY Review of Book, Foreign Affairs, FP, and
Esquire and Vanity Fair. I have favorite books for different
genres. e.g. travel literature...most of Paul Theroux's and
Alexandra Fuller's books. Pulp fiction-- Elmore Leonard; fiction.
Classics: Graham Greene, Gabriel G. Marquez; Steinbeck,Orwell,
Hemingway; New fiction: Danielle Trussoni (check out her stuff if
you find angelology of interest). Movies: Chinatown with Jack
Nicolson, Faye Dunnaway; Tarrantino's Jackie Brown. Music--all
sorts, but warning: I am a Dylan fan; Talking Heads, World Music,
some good contemporary pop, and occassionally classical music
Chopin, Bach, Mozart, etc. Painting. Kandinski, Gauguin, Kahlo and
some Eastern European and East African artists such as Shonev and

Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
First six numbers
last six letters of the alphabet
Sex (said with a Kiwi accent)

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The amount of sniffing dogs do of plants.
On a typical Friday night I am
