My self-summary
I am an outgoing, fun-seeking, curious, sarcastic, analytical, thoughtful, talkative good-listener. I like good food, cold ales, warm friends, and hot tea. I don't care for birthday greetings on Facebook, reality shows or Fox News.
What I’m doing with my life
I am a construction project manager. Hospital projects are what's keeping the industry going these days, so I know a lot about stuff like MRI machines, medical gases and how wide a door you need for a stretcher. I started out as a structural engineer, and thought I would put a stop to the earthquake thing in Califonia. turns out mother nature is more stubborn than I am.
I’m really good at
... pretending that i am really good at playing drums, cooking, paying attention to details, seeking out new restaurants, being a reliable friend, exploring new towns, not finishing last at 5K's and sprint triathlons, using turn signals.
The first things people usually notice about me
are my smile, and my full belly laugh.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Six things I could never do without
* British comedy
* Music
* Netflix+Youtube
* Desserts
* Family and good friends
* Healthy sarcasm with a dash of self-deprecating humor
I spend a lot of time thinking about politics, history, will there be new episodes of the Daily Show this week, what's playing at Landmark or Laemmle, does time really flow forward, that we are all star matter...
On a typical Friday night I am
winding down, and getting ready for saturday.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Sometimes, I daydream that I can singalong to Freddie Mercury really well, and that my bathroom or car is the Royal Albert Hall.

oh! and I don't care for bacon. There, I said it!
You should message me if like mint chocolates. I actually don't like mint chocolates at all. After Eight was the first thing that popped in my mind thinking up a username, and now I can't change it. But I think dissimilar interests sprinkled amongst similar ones make for good couples.
The two of us
