My self-summary
Would rather lend than bend an ear in exchange for thoughtful, considered perspectives (vice versa is an ideal supplement).
I'm often drawn towards those with a creative streak and their heads askew though riveted at discernable angles: independent, active, with an appreciation for homespun humor and able to not take themselves too seriously while at the same time inclined to seek deeper understanding.
I've a need to head out of town on at least a bi-weekly basis (hike/bike/disc golf/kayak) and enjoy intrepid company.
What I’m doing with my life
Living in the black while exhibiting a modicum of disdain for the Joneses.
I’m really good at
Making the bored shop assistant laugh.
Plus, somehow giving off a vibe that invites others to rib me within minutes of first meeting; I'm no milquetoast, mind you, just jovial and honestly self-deprecating with a twist.
I have trouble getting lost, unless invited to, and have a tendency to get pretty good at anything I set my mind to.
Although I rarely need assistance, I will occasionally deign to ask strangers for directions with only a modicum of hesitation.
The first things people usually notice about me
Dunno. My snappy brand of 'east coast' friendliness?

anchor (daughter)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
propaganda and willful ignorance;
antidotes to cynicism;
true value;
On a typical Friday night I am
Not crafting the repast;
spontaneously searching for novel options.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm allergic to lobster & bisque
You should message me if
'n you wants to.

'message me'?!
and then, I suppose, 'talk me' if it comes to that.
