My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
About Me: I'd say I'm mildly outside the mainstream but not so far afield as to attract the attention of the law or social workers (so far). I'm not climbing any corporate ladders, don't belong to any religion, and vastly prefer people one-on-one to in groups; there's just more substance to be had, and frankly, organized groups can work my nerves. Honesty and integrity are utmost in my camp and I have little truck with those who don't also subscribe. Simplicity and balance are current goals. I'm trying to de-clutter, pare down and generally improve my life. I’m trying to age well, and continue to learn by asking “why”? Finding ways to stretch my perceptions in ways that don't compromise me or the things I care about. At the end of the day I’m simply looking for things that make me laugh or think or care. Despite a generally cynical world view and more than a passing familiarity with sarcasm, I actually do possess a wide, deep vulnerable/sensitive/sentimental stripe. I am deeply moved by many things, some of which might invite mockery. I want someone I can freely share this aspect of myself with along with the more acerbic, dry, sometimes blunt side.

About You: You should be intelligent, emotionally articulate, well-read, light hearted, utterly honest, and maintain an active sense of wonder. Additional qualities worth extra points include; proximity to London, susceptibility to life's everyday aphrodisiacs, and a tolerance for fun.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Recently retired (Jan 2012) and have decided to stretch perceptions a little. I'm currently gutting and rebuilding my apartment in London while exploring Europe fairly aggressively. Eventual goal is to split time between Washington (to annoy the progeny), London (because it's fun), and Jerez de la Frontera (porque es alli).

I'm still not sure what I'll do when I grow up.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Smoothing out life's travails. Finding new types of irreducibility criteria.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I've no inability to synchronize with my surroundings, perhaps.

Also...while on this subject...I've noticed a lot of profiles include statements starting with something like "My friends would describe as..." Am I the only one with friends that have never tried to describe my personality while I'm in their presence? Do you think my friends might be insensitive louts...or could it be that some people have friends with ineffective sociological filters?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
As a lifelong fan of SciFi I've never run into a book that was too cheesy for my taste. I prefer movies that either require no thought at all or leave me mystified. Both Rossini and Pink Floyd make me cry. Food should be spiced to excess.

Update: How come nobody ever told me about Flann O'Brien? The Third Policeman is the best thing I've read in years!

Further update: I'll really miss Christopher Hitchens.

Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Roaming around looking for food. I'm usually home by 9 or 10 so as not to be crushed by the "Party People".
