My self-summary
OK, 1st things 1st. Here's what I'm looking for in a partner. I figure it will save us both a lot of time to get it out of the way right from the start:

I'd like to hear from you if you're in physically fit; if you rarely drink alcohol and never do drugs (including weed!), except for medical reasons; and you already have an interesting life of your own apart from me.

A few tattoos and piercings don't hurt; neither do a lot. ;) If you're without body-mods, that's totally awesome, too.

If you can get past those hurdles, I might text you later... :)

Now, here's the straight dope on me: I'm straight, single, vegan, disease- and drug-free (this includes the 420!), financially independent, very much into healthy living & the outdoors, and I have a car.

I do CrossFit 5 times a week, and usually get in some other exercise on Saturday. Physical fitness and healthy living are one of my top priorities... and yet, I don't give a damn about professional sports. Like, not even a little bit. I barely know the names of any pro athletes or teams, and I can think of nothing more boring than watching a game on television, or even worse, following a team as a fan. Seriously, I have much better things to do with my brain cells. Like read books about dragons and spaceships.
What I’m doing with my life
My new philosophy on life: live every week like it's Shark Week.
I’m really good at
Vegetarian cooking, writing, teaching/communication with others to help them acheive their potential, and staying up past my bedtime to fill out profiles on dating websites.

I've never been defeated at Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon.
The first things people usually notice about me
I don't look my age, apparently. Most people assume I'm in my early to mid 30s.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Food -- Full disclosure: I am a vegan, for all the reasons people think are crazy. It is the one thing I am completely inflexible about. Now, most people see the word "vegan," and immediately think of what they can't eat. But, my experience was the opposite; when I went vegan, I discovered thousands of tasty things I could eat, that I'd been missing out on because I'd been wasting my time eating meat at every meal! It would be nice if you felt the same way about eating animals as I do, as I don't plan to spend my life with someone fundamentally opposed to my beliefs. But, you can take baby steps if you're not there yet. :)P

Music -- Recently discovered "gothic country/dark roots/cemetery & western" music, and I'm loving the genre. It reminds me of the old days, when I was the Goth-punk kid with the secret stash of classic country albums under the bed... except now the world has caught up with me! Some artists from the genre include: 16 Horsepower, Woven Hand, Hank Ray, Munly, Graveyard Train, Ninth House, Ghoultown, Those Poor Bastards, Strawfoot, Sons Of Perdition, and Legendary Shack Shakers (just to name a few). I also dig Voltaire, classic country & western, a smattering of hip-hop and quite a lot of the standard L.A. hipster music.

Movies -- I like mainstream movies. But unlike you, I'm willing to admit it. ;P I don't particularly have a favorite director, or actor/actress, or screenwriter. I don't care if a movie was made by a big studio, or by an underfunded one-legged Trotskyist lesbian dwarf film student. I don't think indie or foreign automatically equals good, and that big budget Hollywood automatically equals bad. That's not to say I don't have preferences: I'm a nerd, so if it has monsters, ghosts, or creepy-crawly things going bump in the night, or steely-eyed gunslingers seeking justice against even badder men than themselves, or spaceships and robots, then I'm game. I'm more impressed by movies that win Saturns than Oscars. And I have a new and pretty intense crush on Bollywood.

Television -- I don't have cable, so I get all my TV from Hulu, iTunes, and Netflix. I am a Doctor Who fanatic; as Trekkies are to Star Trek, I am to the Doctor. I watch a lot of 90s shows, cancelled series I never caught the first time, and Law & Order SVU, The Daily Show, and The Colbert Report. Also, see "Movies," above.

Books -- I read a lot of non-fiction about science and nature, and a lot of sci-fi and horror fiction. And I'm usually in the middle of more than one book at a time. I've just entered an "animal fantasy" period (that is, novels featuring animals as the protagonists); in the middle of Tad Williams' "Tailchaser's Song," and from there will move on to "Watership Down," "The Book Of The Dun Cow," and some novels by Clare Bell, David Clement-Davies, Patricia Hearst, and William Horwood.

Also, I am getting back into comic trade paperback collections, thanks to the DC New 52. Curse them for getting me excited about comics again!
The six things I could never do without
1) Orange juice from my Jack LaLanne Power Juicer.

2) The scent of used books.

3) The sound of distant trains.

4) The songs of hidden night birds.

5) The knowledge that those birds are cousins of the velociraptor.

6) My awesome goth-cowboy hat.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
obscure, arcane science-y things, like Triassic pterosaur evolution, the sauropod hiatus, and the air-speed velocity of unladen swallows.
On a typical Friday night I am
Working out or hanging out with my special friends. Or both.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I almost never take the freeway anywhere within the L.A. metro area. I'm in no hurry and I have nothing to prove.
