Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I've traveled a lot and hope to continue doing so. I'm more apt to
head north and explore a ruined castle on windswept moors than sit
on the beach and drink pina coladas (though I've done my share of
that as well).
I love to cook. Sharing a meal and a bottle of wine with friends is
my idea of a perfect evening. I enjoy woodworking and have made
several pieces of furniture as well as gifts for friends. I like
the outdoors, but haven't been taking much advantage of the
beauties of Oregon lately. I'd love to find someone to go on
I'm not spiritual or religious. However I've burnt candles in
churches for loved ones whom I knew did believe and I'll bow my
head politely when you say grace.
I'm a liberal, but if you think 9/11 was an inside job or that drug
companies are hiding a cure for cancer then we won't be a good
I can't stand snobs, or know it alls, or people who talk behind
others' backs. I feel sarcasm should be reserved for people who
truly warrant it, like Tea Partiers.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work full time in a food related business. On the side I'm doing
web development and kicking around ideas for the next big thing.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Learning one sentence in lots of language,
Finding a common area of interest with almost anyone,
And apparently making each line in a list longer than the previous.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My wit, humor, and tendency to make awful puns.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I read almost anything: British mysteries, books on physics and
other nerdy stuff, and the occasional block buster. I loved Lamb:
The Gospel According to Biff, On The Road, and Freakonomics. I'm
not the type to re-read my favorites or get all "fan-boy".
I love jazz: particularly classic stuff like Charlie Parker, Dizzy
Gillespie, and Thelonious Monk, but I also enjoy the blues,
classical music, and 60s/70s rock. I have to admit I didn't know
75% of the people on The Grammys this year.
I enjoy both art house and blockbuster movies. Pretty much anything
that is not ultra-violent or where people are mean to one another.
Tampopo, 2001, Harold and Maude, and the Zaitoichi blind swordsman
movies were some of my favorites. Lately I've enjoyed Zero Dark
Thirty and Argo.
As to food, I'll eat anything and everything. But offal is pushing
my limits, and the blood taco I ate from the food stand in a market
in Mexico was truly disgusting.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
A place to cook
Something to ponder
My smart phone
A shower and hot water
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What it is that I think now that will seem as silly to people in
the future as creationism is to me today.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Cooking something fun to share with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I miss having someone to text or call when something exciting, or
upsetting, or funny happens.
