My self-summary
I'm a separated father of two young boys who's looking to find new friends. I socialise with all sorts of people, but am particularly missing intelligent adult conversation with someone capable of stringing together a coherent sentence. I'm not looking for a new mother for my children - they already have one. My tastes in life are broad, as is my sense of humour, and I definately don't take myself too seriously. I read a lot and widely, play music (be warned - it's mostly Irish Traditional!) and don't own a television set, although we do play DVDs on my laptop.
My boys are with me half the time, and I love spending time them and with other people's kids. My time is half kid's activities, half daddy stuff. I'm particularly fond of nature and regularly go camping and fossicking, although I have been known to lie on the odd beach.

I am tall, intelligent, and down to earth.
What I’m doing with my life
Cruising along - I work on a contract basis, so it's drought or plenty as far as that goes.
I’m really good at
Stunning people with my sledgehammer sense of humour. Thinking of a really witty retort three days too late (ah, l'esprit d'escalier!). Feeding two or more starving kids when there's nothing in the house - Old Mother Hubbard, what a loser! Getting drunk and talking sh*te. Ranting. Being a FIGJAM who knows everything.
The first things people usually notice about me
It would have to be my devastating lack of dress sense. And the huge esky of carry out.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I have a complete bookcase full. Although perhaps I should move the food to the refrigerator?

I'm currently reading three books - a collection of short stories, a textbook on wood carving, and one by Allison DuBois. Make of that what you will, possibly that I must have at least one extra eye, or even two extra if I'm managing to type as well.

I like folk music (there, I've said it) and some classical. And heavy metal naturally. I play some.

I like most things I can fit in my mouth. And yes, I am being dirty.
Six things I could never do without
my kids
good friends
satisfying sex

They didn't say you had to prioritise the list...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
All sorts of sh*t. In fact I spend more time thinking about it than doing it. Or at least I used to. And believe me, most people think it's complete sh*t.
On a typical Friday night I am
Not having anywhere near as much fun as I should be. Unless I'm playing music, in which case don't bother me. Unless you're also playing the same music. Or you have another pint for me. Or you're female, not physically repellent and have a pulse (being brutally honest here).
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I always cry when I watch one of the following films:

a) The breakfast club
b) Thelma and Louise
c) Highlander

You'll have to win my confidence before I tell you which one and why.
You should message me if
If you really want to make friends with a know-it-all, opinionated smart a*se who dresses like your least favourite uncle and dances like a funky fish. Or if you're bored, or lonely, or incarcerated for a crime you didn't commit. Or even for one you did. But especially if you think you can make me laugh, or perhaps more importantly that we can do that to each other.
The two of us
