My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My wife SioLazer and I are high school sweethearts pining for the intelligent, winsome ladies we both so adore. I don't believe in unicorns; I do believe in unconditional and eternal love which need not be exclusive. I'm a skeptical, dorky, chronically sarcastic, feminist, eclectic, reserved, occasionally foppish, aspiring optimist; a perfectionist, a bit of a snob, and (like all of our species) occasionally an idiot. INTP, FWIW. I take much greater stock in narrative responses (this section & Messages) than multiple-choices (Questions & Personality). I do relish the sesquipedalian.

Sometimes I'm so afraid of making a bad first impression that I do nothing. The higher my hope, the greater the fear. And I do realize this is a flaw: Better to regret something you have done (within reason!) than to regret something you haven't done, no?
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Mastering the zen of pinball.

Teaching myself to play the bass (as in electric, but string basses are cool too). Know any great bass lines?

Collecting analog entertainments.

Working nine to five.

Editing Wikipedia (mostly proofreading).

Writing much and talking little--more of a listener in person.

Brewing beer in the garage and dreaming of opening a brewpub/grill. I'll run the brewery & she'll run the kitchen (our respective passions). Because Portland can never have too much good beer and fine cuisine.

My other major aspiration is to become a lawyer; I'd like to practice in criminal defense and civil liberties. Perry Mason is a hero of mine. (Heroes can be fictitious, no?)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Love; listening; diagnosing and fixing things abstract and material; playing pinball; not taking myself, you, or anybody else too seriously; reading; writing; and arithmetic.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My quietness; my sometimes goofy/sometimes dark/seldom relenting sense of humor; my gregarious, glorious firecracker of a wife (as she and I are seldom apart); and my candor.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
As a news junkie I spend most of my reading time on it--web, newspapers, magazines. I tend to lose hours wandering from link to link in Wikipedia. I do enjoy fiction but can seldom find the time, transfixed as I am by the marvels of reality.

I dig movies by Tarantino, the Coen brothers, Buñuel, Monthy Python, and Hitchcock, among others.

TV shows I've enjoyed: Simpsons, Futurama, Boondocks, Community, Outsourced, Parks and Rec, Modern Family, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Breaking Bad, Dexter, Daily Show, Colbert Report, Real Time, This Week, Meet the Press, Washington Week.

Audio programs: Q, Savage LoveCast, Wait Wait Don't Tell Me, Radio Lab, Car Talk, and This American Life. I miss Talk of the Nation, most of all Political Junkie Wednesdays.

Music: I'll listen to anything with a good rhythm and melody. Again in no particular order: , funk, soul, blues, classic rock, electronica, hip hop, bluegrass, metal, Motown, jazz, ska, opera, and any anything in between--but I mostly gravitate towards pop-punk and new wave.

Food: I was a very picky eater as a child, but around adolescence I came to my senses and began to explore the full spectrum of flavor. Notwithstanding heavy use of garlic, cilantro, or raw onions, I'll eat pretty much anything. My favorite pizza is pepperoni and pineapple. In the summer I always make time to forage for blackberries. I barbecue a fantastic brisket. I do respect your right to choose what you eat or don't, and expect the same in return. Use your freedom of choice!
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Why six, praytell? I suppose I'll go with love, laughter, sex, scenery, pets, and play.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The future; how each thing might be perfected (including this profile, which I cannot stop editing). I try not to dwell on the past, but always to learn from it. I do have a penchant for (over)analyzing most all aspects of life. For instance, when I give you a star rating on here, if then write you and and you don't respond, should I subtract stars? Proprietary algorithms: How are they operationalized?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Drinking a pint with my better half and perchance a friend or two, playing pinball or watching a film (which I reserve the right to pronounce "FILL-um" in a lousy English accent for comic effect).
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm an open book (e.g., I have no interest in "browsing invisibly"); to which page will you turn? I.e.: What's the most private thing you have the audacity to ask? BTW, if you know what each of the preceding Latin abbreviations stand for, you get eleventeen bonus points in my book (And no, I don't consider that a private detail; consider it a symbolic act against the rigidity of the OKC profile format).
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
you spotted the Devo lyric above or at least agreed with it (it was "Use your freedom of choice!");

your gut instinct tells you to--I promise I won't bite (unless of course upon request); and

you have similar stirrings for SioLazer, because seriously, we're pretty much attached at the hip.
