My self-summary
There are two kinds of men in this world. I'm one of those types.

Objectively, I'm smart. Subjectively, I'm funny and kind and polite and easy going and a pretty good cook. Proof available on request.

I have been told that my charm is irresistible, but many of you ladies are doing an excellent job of resisting it completely.

I have the hobbies of an 80-year-old woman. To wit: I am an avid player of contract bridge, I am a season-ticket holder to the Lyric Opera, and I sometimes leave my keys in the front door and don't find them until the next morning.

What I may lack in pulchritude I more than make up for in charisma.
What I’m doing with my life
Have you ever seen the show How It's Made? That's kinda what I do for a living. I have seen everything from dog food to cars to Pop Tarts being made! (First date pro-tip: Ask me how the Pop-Tart frosting is applied. The answer may surprise you.)
I’m really good at
folding dollar bills into elephants.

I'm less good at the vice versa.
The first things people usually notice about me
On a subconscious level, they notice that I exist.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Let's do some top twos, keeping in mind that my answers might change from day to day. How does one choose favorites from so many great books or movies?

My favorite movies (comedy) are The Jerk and Airplane!
My favorite movies (drama) are Topsy-Turvy and Master and Commander.
My favorite operas are Gilbert and Sullivan's The Mikado and Offenbach's Tales of Hoffmann
My favorite bands are Steely Dan and Ween.
My favorite TV shows (current) are Archer and Orphan Black.
My favorite TV shows (all time) are Deadwood and NYPD Blue.
My favorite artists are Amedeo Modigliani and Bob Ross.
My favorite authors are George Saunders and Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.
My favorite TV chefs are Rick Bayless and Julia Child.
My favorite words are spigot and ostensibly.
My favorite vegetables are ramps and arugula.
My favorite crushes from early 90's music videos (3-way tie) are Lady Miss Keir (Deee-Lite's Groove is in the Heart), Kay Hanley (Letters to Cleo's Here and Now), and the girl from Whale (Hobo Humpin' Slobo Babe).
My favorite cheeses are Manchego and Juustoleipa (Finnish bread cheese).

Go ahead and give me another category and we'll see what I come up with!
The six things I could never do without
My iPad, a Coke Zero, Roasted meats, The Internet, my pets, a good chef's knife.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
who I'm going to take with me to Fhlosten Paradise if I win Gemini Croquette contest.
On a typical Friday night I am
playing bridge. Yes, contract bridge. Yes, the card game that your grandmother played. It's great. I'd like to teach you.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Sometimes I want to move to rural Vermont and live in a Yurt. I'll settle for a cabin in the woods nearby. I will practice my bushcraft skills but then sleep in a comfortable bed. And then come back to the city where there's, you know, stuff to do. Plus I don't think they've perfected bushcraft internet yet.
You should message me if
you're awesome and you think that maybe I might be, too.
