Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm first and foremost a smart aleck - it's congenital, and I've
given up fighting against it. So if you're looking for someone
who'll sit there demurely and not comment on the world's
weirdnesses, don't look my way. However, I do promise to comment
under my breath, so no one who's not sitting next to me has to hear
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Currently, supervising middle school homework. I don't exactly have
kids, but one of my nephews is living with me at present. Is it
just senility setting in, or have they changed the names of all the
subjects since I was in school? What the heck is "consolidated
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Jigsaw puzzles, giving head scratches (to the dog), and knowing
impressive yet mostly useless words. Like defenestrate.....how
often do you get a chance to use that one in general conversation?
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I dunno. I get a lot of comments on my fabulous shoes, so perhaps
that's the most noticeable thing about me. Or perhaps I just spend
too much time around people with shoe obsessions.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

(a) ALL of them! I read constantly, and like almost every genre.
Except porn, which is usually badly written and has incredibly dull
dialogue - but can be unintentionally funny when read aloud in a
(b) Princess Bride and any James Bond movie
(c) Tom Lehrer rules! Other than that, this week it's The Ramones,
Lavay Smith, and Tannahill Weavers
(d) Asparagus, good chocolate, real macaroni and cheese, and that
maple-glazed pork tenderloin I make that is totally amazing (if I
do say so myself).
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Why six? What's so special about six? And why do I have to define
myself this way? That said, during baking season the list is pretty
1) Butter - good quality unsalted only, please
3) Unbleached flour
5) Mexican vanilla extract; and
6) Parchment paper
The rest of the year the list consists mostly of office and
organizational supplies. I have an odd fixation with indexing and
color coding. At least it's a marketable form of OCD!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Pierce Brosnan, chocolate, Pierce Brosnan dipped in chocolate,
world peace, and whether that splash means the cat has fallen into
the toilet again.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Honestly? Laundry. However, admitting to that doesn't exactly make
me seem like an interesting person so I'll try to make up something
better. How about "Saving the whales while tutoring underprivileged
children and engaging in competitive crossword puzzle solving"?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have an inexplicable attraction to French cuffs. Some
long-forgotten incident in my childhood apparently convinced me
that French cuffs on a man are the sexiest thing ever. Really nice
cufflinks give me chills.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You need your closets reorganized, you can deliver Pierce Brosnan
to my home (with or without chocolate), you think you fathered my
dog's puppies, or you have a strong opinion on whether argyle socks
belong to the left of striped ones. And especially, if you can run
a hand mixer while simultaneously removing a cat from the bowl of
cookie dough. That's a lot harder than it looks, you know.
