So it is hard to know what to say here. You should keep reading if you are looking for a guy who enjoys vacuuming. OMG. Making the nap of the carpet stand up with that never-been-walked-on look.
When I am not vacuuming, I am doing research, teaching, writing, gardening, working out at the gym, playing music, keeping in touch with family and friends, or editing my profile. All of which sounds very ordinary. But that is not how it feels from the inside. From the inside it feels extraordinary. Partly because I am a deliriously happy dad. But also because my instinct is to delve fully into experience, find out where it leads, see how everything fits. Taking time, soaking in the details, getting saturated in the moment.
Despite the zen bent, I am fairly good (and practiced) at telling bad jokes. (What happens to frogs when they park in a no parking zone; what one cannibal said to the other cannibal when they started eating the clown; what you call cheese that isn't yours). And because they are politically incorrect, I also enjoy demented jokes (why the baby crossed the road).
Who I am hoping to cross paths with:
Many things are very attractive to me. Any one would get me interested. If you take good care of yourself, that is a big deal to me. Kind-heartedness, and feeling like the best days in your life are the days when you have been most helpful to other people - equally huge. If you are a parent and love hanging around kids of all ages, another big deal. There have been plenty of social events where hang with the kids instead of the grown-ups, and one of the reasons that I have taught for so long is because college students totally rock.
