My self-summary
I am really enthusiastic about everything. Painfully indiscriminate about it. This produces an overuse of exclamation points!!! It makes me look dumb, I know, but that's how I do.

I think I have restless-being syndrome.

I make lots of lists of stuff to do, but don't get too upset if nothing gets done. I like ink. Pen and ink drawings and actual letters in envelopes and inky tattoos. I need to get more of those. That goes on the list. Oh, and I like the smell of books, especially old library books. And leaves! And coffee! And soap!

What else? I am an absolute bastard for a long walk with a beer and a chat at the end. Or picking up a book from the big stack that is supposed to get read and getting lost for a few hours. Or having a conversation that ends up being about so many things that you forget what started it.

Whenever I am in that two-people-trying-to-get-by-each-other-in-a-hallway thing, I always pick the wrong way to go. In related news, I can't tell my right from my left without a little bit of thought. It goes without saying that I am colossally inept at everything mechanical ever.

Gah! In general, I am a complete spazz, but hopefully in an endearing way, not in an I'm-going-to-kill-you kind of way.
What I’m doing with my life
I spend all day wrapping my brain around things that don't like to be wrapped around sometimes. I play droney music with no words to make my brain unwrap. I run around chasing a soccer ball to pretend that my knees are not getting older. I read and read and read and read as much as I can. I want to get excited and make things until they turn the lights out.

I am in the process of an amicable separation from a very good friend. We had an "open" relationship in the last two years of our marriage (which meant that she had another partner, who is also now a really good friend), but it didn't entirely click with me, so I'm trying to figure out what does--which means, right now I'm just interested in people to geek out, learn from, and occasionally smooch with.
I’m really good at
I can read really, really fast! And remember ridiculous facts. And listening to people talk, especially about things that they feel passionate about.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm tall. And skinny, or lanky, or slender, or thin, or something. And I generally have an gigantic shit-eating grin on my face and am about to walk into something inanimate.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Robertson Davies, Ryszard Kapuscinski, Michael Ondaatje, James Joyce, Charles Dickens, Graham Greene, David Foster Wallace, Ian Rankin...I've gotten into this weird non-fiction thing recently, but picking up Neverwhere is making me love imaginary worlds again.

Music (based on the last 10 artists in my playlist): Coltrane, Mogwai, Unwound, ...And You Will Know Us, Bach, The Who, Nadja, Thee Oh Sees, Mash Hall. And Elbow just came on! I am about to fall over.

Movies: The Big Sleep, The Godfather, The Third Man, The 39 Steps. Airplane!

Food: I grew up in a mostly Italian family, so I'm a sucker for making and eating large amounts of pasta. And I have a thing for ketchup. I'm not afraid to admit it! Otherwise, I'm willing to try just about anything. I was vegetarian for a long time, but just starting eating fish recently, and I am very thankful for their oceanic goodness.
The six things I could never do without
Books. Making music. Places to walk to. People to talk to. Being loving. Learning.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How I think! How you think! What makes brain go? How patterns fit together and fall apart. How memory works. How art and music trigger things in our heads.
On a typical Friday night I am
This is lame, maybe? Eating pasta, exorcising the Netflix list, and going to bed early so I can play soccer Saturday morning.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I cry at the movies. But only during the part where the lights start to dim and the opening credits roll.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 30–45
  • Near me
  • For new friends
You should message me if
If you're up for a drink and a chat about everything and anything. Nothing makes me happier than a beer and someone who has something amazing going on that they're dying to tell me about.
