Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a desert rat/former chef who recently transplanted to the Twin
Cities in search of adventure and minions to further my goals of
world conquest and drinking all of the tasty beverages this lovely
area has to offer. Do you know where the best beer, food, music,
nerd games, coffee, waterfalls, dogs, art or hiking trails of the
city are? If you do, I will trade delicious home-made food, beers,
cuddles, massages, or time with my unfairly adorable (it's
seriously such bullshit) dog for this knowledge! It's a unique
opportunity, with potential for future barter!
I'm in an open relationship, so I'm mostly looking for new friends
(maybe with benefits later...after 6 months I provide
medical/dental and a 401k). I recently changed my orientation to
bi: I've had a couple experiences with men that I'd like to explore
further, though I'm in a serious relationship with a woman and
enjoy having adventures/making out with ladies.
I laugh and swear a lot, I draw most of my powers from my beard,
and I talk to people on buses.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Most recently I was running the kitchens of several different
restaurants/companies, but since moving I've pared that down
significantly (man, free time is AWESOME. So is sleeping more than
a 4 hours a night). My time right now is divided between setting up
in the Twin Cities food scene and exploring Minnesota. And napping.
And playing nerd games of various types. And wandering the woods.
And figuring out how exactly to save the world. Someone's gotta do
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Cooking. It's basically my favorite thing to do, so that's pretty
convenient. It's safe to assume that if we've been friends for
longer than 2 weeks I've cooked something for you. I'm not the sort
of vegetarian who has problems with other people eating meat, so if
that's your game I can provide.
Saying completely inappropriate things and getting away with it. In
fact, saying something appallingly inappropriate (and offensive) is
the quickest way to make friends with me.
Being immensely lazy...until I have to work really hard to make up
for it. Pretty good at both sides of the equation.
Apocalyptic scenarios. Do YOU have a zombie apocalypse plan?
Because you SHOULD.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Hmm...toss up between my bright blue-green eyes, my lustrous beard
and the smack-talk usually issuing from my lips like a fountain of
willfully inappropriate and occasionally vulgar glee.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Some thought provoking thing, whether it's a book or a game or a
weird interpersonal situation. Currently having lots of fun with
the writings of Chang Tze, fantasy novels by Steven Erikson, a
rather informative book of techno-futurist hope for humanity called
Abundance and a couple TEDtalks on poverty or medicine.
A decent kitchen with a sharp chef knife. Food is a pretty central
aspect of my life.
The occasional-to-frequent death-nap.
Trees and stars.
Fresh stories about crazy things to swap over GOOD beers with
equally interesting people.
Something to play or sing or hum, if only in my head.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Words. The way people express things is endlessly fascinating to
Apocalyptic scenarios. I've sorta always enjoyed the idea of
everything going to shit. It sorta boils things down in interesting
Music. I tend to find a new artist I like and obsess for a few
weeks and then move on to something else (though a lot of artists
sorta hang out in the periphery and are absorbed osmotically).
Currently having a moment over Brownbird, Bach's Orgenwerke and
Murder by Death.
. It's not a porn site, and it makes me
How best to live life. My time tends to straddle the gap between
lazy sensuous generally cat-like days and seizing visceral
experiences that scare me a little. I've never been able to decide
between the two, and don't particularly feel a need to.
How best to save the world. I'm generally of the opinion that
there's a lot of big issues that need work in the world (energy,
resources, poverty, climate change and resultant species die-offs
being the big one/s for me) and spend a lot of time thinking about
how to go about making things better.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You share my interests. Or if you think I'm *HAWT*. Or if you are
singularly knowledgeable about the awesomest places in the Twin
Cities and want to show a new guy around. Or if you want to get out
and play in the woods. Or especially if you're willing to teach me
something (or provide some sort of creature comfort such as
massages) in exchange for delicious food. Or ESPECIALLY if you want
to swap adventure stories over good beer or coffee.
This is kind of a silly question. I mean, if you find me
intriguing, you're going to message me anyway, no?
