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 (well, I used to be), 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
I watch TV. Some of my favorite shows are BoJack Horseman, Lady Dynamite, Mozart in the Jungle, Archer, The Man in the High Castle, Game of Motherfucking Thrones, and Last Week Tonight. There's also this show about forging weapons called "Forged in Fire" that I really like. I would like to try that one day.

I like sports but I'm not super sport-obsessed. My favorite sport is hockey where I support the Detroit Red Wings (my lone sports holdover from growing up in Michigan). Bears and Cubs games from time-to-time, and I've started to watch British Premiere League football, where my team is Tottenham Hotspur. They're my team because I liked their logo which is a chicken standing on a soccer ball, plus it's fun to say Tottenham Hotspur.

I read books. Well, mostly I ear-read them during my commute. Favorites authors include Vonnegut, Christopher Moore, George Saunders. Some non-fiction as well, like "Saving Capitalism" by Robert Reich, a great explanation of why progressive economic policy is the best economic policy. I also recently read a really good book on improving your willpower and I have some ideas of what to do next. Eventually I'll get around to trying them.

I go to a lot of operas. Hopefully that is something that interests you, but if not then that's okay, too. I subscribe to Lyric Opera with a friend, but I go to the Met Opera simulcasts (live opera in your local movie theater) by myself, and I've subscribed to Chicago Opera Theater on my own. I'll probably have an extra ticket to an opera or two this season if you play your cards right.

I also listen to a lot of not-opera as well. Ween is a long-time favorite band of mine, though I get that it's not for everyone. I also like Jack White, Steely Dan, Andrew Bird... Doesn't everyone say in this section that they have eclectic taste? Me too.
Six things I could never do without
My pets, especially my bloodhound. Very few decisions get made lately without considering him first.
I love my iPad, though I hanker for a new one.
I am legit addicted to Coke Zero, though I quit soda completely for the month of May without issue.
Roasted meats are delicious, and I like delicious things.
The Internet, because it's where my friends live.
[Item Six intentionally left blank.]
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
For many years, Friday night meant playing contract bridge. I've gotten out of practice lately but I'd like to get back into it.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Sometimes I want to move to rural Vermont and live in a Yurt because people can be annoying.
You should message me if
you're awesome and you think that maybe I might be, too.
The two of us
