My self-summary
Get comfortable: this profile is longer than Moby Dick (the classic 1851 novel, not a rapper with a big schvantz. You're thinking of MoB-dikk).

Note: I don't pay for my OKC account (sorry, but it's a waste of funds). Therefore, If you "Like" me and click the little star, I will have absolutely no idea who you are. So just send me a note to say hi, OK?

My pics are recent -- not 20 years & 20 lbs ago.

I'm a dedicated dad to a terrific girl, fatherhood being the most fulfilling experience of my life (so far). I have time and room for you, too.

I value intelligence, curiosity, and balanced, rational thinking. We all have opinions, but I'm more interested in knowing ABOUT stuff – humanities, science, business, culture, arts, politics, law, media, and language. Ignorance doesn't really complement worthy opinions.

I cook, and I do it well. Fresh, home made, in season, minimally processed. I don’t live to eat, but cooking is good for my soul and your mouth. Dining at home with family and friends is just a damn good thing to do.

Piano -- a great love. I play the occasional club or private gig with favored musicians. I don't do garage rock band stuff.

I love the outdoors in general, esp. wilderness hiking and distance bicycling. I work out semi-regularly and am fit.

In a relationship, I really try to avoid: lots of drama; frequent crises; chaotic or impulsive lifestyle; self-absorption; bad parenting; financial irresponsibility; dogma; discourtesy.

If you have a drink now and then (I definitely do), I hope alcohol makes you even more charming, sweeter, and more affectionate than you already are, as opposed to, say, an embarrassing, uninhibited nitwit. Been there...

I encourage you to read all "our" responses to the OKC questions. I've bypassed many that are just too incredibly stupid. And I don't really want to answer 134 questions about anal sex publicly & online. If you really need those answers, fear not, for all shall be revealed when we meet on our first date at the brand new SphincterWorld Adult Novelty Super Center & Coffee Bar (formerly, Barnes & Noble) right next door to Wal-Mart.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
how the time I spend on this website is hours I'll never get back.
On a typical Friday night I am
FRIDAY! Alcohol-Fueled Paranoia Night! I'm wearing a filthy wife-beater and briefs with no elastic left in them. I'm killing a fifth of Safeway brand vodka, sweating profusely, cleaning and reloading my many guns, watching COPS, and pacing around my trailer with increasing agitation. I stick my head out the door to scan the sky for government helicopters and to glare ambiguously at the neighbors. I stare into my 1962 non-working refrigerator for several minutes: there's only some mustard in there. Then I pass out for a couple of hours. Then I check my OKCupid account.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Tragically, I have a body part disproportionately long for my size. My arms: I should be a 33" sleeve, but I'm a 34" -- practically a howler monkey.
You should message me if
you have any three of the following attributes: sweet, kind, clever, industrious, sexy, calm, presentable, articulate, brilliant, short, tall, bi-lingual (that means having two tongues), recently-bathed, perfect pitch, mezzo-soprano, omnivorous, foreign accent (especially Texas), own fewer than 17 cats, not currently violating parole, have completely kicked your meth habit.

If you're incredibly wealthy, 97 years of age, at or near death's door, please, oh please, drive your Rascal scooter to the head of the line. I promise you the most gratifying last nights of your life. :-)
