Body Type

Agnosticism and it’s important
Has kids and doesn’t want more
English (Fluently), C++ (Fluently)
My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Is this where you talk about long walks on the fireplace? Because I really can't be bothered.

(Actually, it turns out I can’t be bothered about a lot of things—I am the despair of greeting card marketers—but I can be there when it’s time for sincerity. Or silliness.)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working mostly, or so it seems. Also catching up on my enormous stack of unread books, hanging out with the kids, etc.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I hate this question. I mean, I really really hate it. That said I'm very good at C++ and trivia.

Does that tell you anything about me? I really really hope not.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My eyes: I've heard the words soulful, striking, cerulean, honest, humorous, communicative, blue, deep.

My fashion sense: I've had more than one person tell me they envied me for clearly not caring what anybody thought. Ironically, this isn't entirely true.

I'm the strong silent type (who won't shut up once I get to know you well enough), albeit clearly engaged and with a readily apparent sense of humor.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I like a lot of the same things you do, except for the things I don't.

Musically, I'm mostly a rock guy; I don't watch very much TV and never got in the habit of binge-watching; i like films that are smart, funny and self-aware (although I'm not immune to the appeal of a big budget explosion-fest, seen in the proper circumstances); and I enjoy most genres of food (especially sushi and Mediterranean).

I've always liked something that one of the Monty Python guys said: that the secret to their success was that they did high brow, and they did low brow, and absolutely nothing in between.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Twenty-five odd years ago, I would have agreed with LL Cool J who you know he couldn't live without his radio. But times have changed.

More recently, I would have said something about my books and my CD's, but the internet is changing all that. I do have to say that I would have a hard time living without access to the cultural world that those things represent.

Beyond that, I don't know. And why six of them? But let me see:

Companionship, sex, indie-rock (although the current wave of it leaves me underwhelmed--maybe I just need to get out more), books (mostly FSF these days, but that could change), good food (see above).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Mostly decompressing from the week. If I'm going to do something on my days off, it's much more likely to be Saturday or Sunday.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I shot a man in Reno, just to watch him die.

(Actually, that wasn't me, that was Johnny Cash. However, I did live in Reno for several years, and went to high school there, and I often wished that Johnny hadn't stopped at just one man.)
You should message me if

you're smart and funny, and/or If you would like a companion to explore the city with. (And if you're okay with me ending a sentence with a preposition: seriously, down with grammar pedants.)
