My self-summary
I'm an ex-standup comic and current computer geek. I think of myself as easy-going, but I'm afraid the reality is that I'm a larger version of Barney Fife--highly excitable at times ;-).

This is going to be a work in progress. BTW, I am *very* skeptical of many of the online tests that are modeled after the Briggs-Meyers tests. If you would like to know more about them, go to http://www.skepdic.com/myersb.html

I am Humorous as hell, skeptical, and Poly
What I’m doing with my life
I was in a rebuilding process and I've found out things about myself I either never knew before, or never admitted to knowing. And, most of it's good. Like being poly. While not a viable lifestyle for everyone, I find it fits me well.
I’m really good at
Most of what I am good at can not be discussed in polite company. ;-) However, if you have a spittoon handy, I will accommodate...I may not be a gourmet chef, but I have a lot of the science of cooking down pat.
The first things people usually notice about me
People think I'm a biker. Some people think I have a ponytail. I have neither a bike nor ponytail, but I once had a pony named Nicky (Thanks to Steven Wright!)....UPDATE: I now have a ponytail. It's cheaper than a Harley. UPDATED UPDATE: The ponytail is gone again.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Big on Batman and James Bond. Love comedies, things with Leslie Nielsen and stuff by the Zucker Bros and Jim Abraham, together or apart. In fiction, I like a lot of the modern classics, and counter-culture authors like Charles Bukowski or Somerset Maugham. Wait, Maugham is not counter-culture. He lived a rich, extravagant lifestyle. Oh well....
Six things I could never do without
A computer with high-speed internet access
Good friends
Exceptional food
And this lamp...
And this chair...
And this ashtray...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I think a lot about the current state of the United States...how some people consider the freedom of religion means they can do anything they want willy-nilly in the name of their god (My god's name: Marty. He's a Sagittarius that likes candlelit dinners and walks on the beach). To paraphase George Carlin: Religion is like a lift in your shoe. If you need it, it makes you stand a little taller, walk a little straighter. The problem with most religions is that they want to nail their shoes onto the natives' feet.
On a typical Friday night I am
I no longer work the weekends, so Fridays can have me going out to dinner with friends, meeting others in a social group I frequent, or hanging around the ol' homestead.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
HAH! Thought you'd lull me in to a sense of trust, eh?
You should message me if
You want to chat, debate, argue, commiserate, date, perform deviant rituals, discuss current events, talk about a movie or book, take a test, or just want to hang out...drop me a line. I do prefer local people, however.

UPDATE: Someone who enjoys Indian food or other spicy and/or hot cuisines. If I have a choice between a new place & one I've been to, I pick the new place...
The two of us
