Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a born and bred Brooklynite. I lived in Milwaukee for six and
half years and prior to that spent a year in Dublin before moving
back east Christmas 2011.
I work as a philosophy teacher at a college. I'm enjoying some time
off although I may pick up some manual labor before the Fall
I'm a pretty active guy. I like being outdoors moving around. I
bike a lot and run and play basketball and handball. I read a lot
for leisure and it's also a significant part of my career. I write
both prose and poetry. I enjoy reading fiction but certainly have
no facility in writing it :)
I also like to imbibe the occasional libation ;)
I lived in Wisconsin for six and a half years and I was just back
for a visit. Milwaukee is a nice midwestern city on the lake.
Before that I lived in Dublin for a year for my first MA degree. It
also so happens that I have a lot of family in Dublin and have
spent a lot of time over there throughout my life. I haven't been
to Europe since 2008. I keep hoping that I'll be able to get back
one of these days.
I am a pretty good cook and can make a variety of dishes.

I update this periodically 7/7/14: I'm currently reading the
Hobbit. Haven't read it as an adult and it is still a truly
enchanting tale. I'm always reading a philosophy text of some sort.
Generally in ancient and medieval philosophy but I await a Searle
text on philosophy of language and ethics. I will also be starting
a history of Regis HS, my alma mater. Other things I have from the
library currently: Kafka's The Castle; James' Portrait of a Lady;
I'm a GoT fan. Love watching Nat Geo particularly Life Below Zero
and Drugs Inc. I love going to the movies. Haven't been in a while.
I got a great fright watching the Conjuring in the theatre last
summer. Just watched Jason Bateman in Bad Words on DVD. Funny
The six things I could never do without

As Victor Frankl says - a human can learn to get used to anything.

Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
My presence on here should indicate I spend time and energy looking
for a woman. I'm quite certain there is an inverse relationship
between this and the likelihood of finding a woman. As the former
goes up the latter goes down. That's my experience. What do you
On a typical Friday night I am
