My self-summary
(I can't see likes so send me a message if you're interested).

What's the guy equivalent of a cat lady, but with dogs? Pretty sure I'm that.

Very curious by nature and still easily awed and fascinated by things I see daily (not like "ooooh, shiny," but "that's a neat storm cloud.").

I can be pretty funny, too (although this comes out more naturally for me in person than through writing). My sense of humor can be pretty irreverent (and occasionally tasteless) but always meant in good fun; think Sarah Silverman and Steve Martin's character from The Jerk having a baby and then throwing it out in a dumpster.
What I’m doing with my life
Running; rehabbing my money pit; making things (next are kites when I get some more free time); hanging out with my dog; learning more about sustainability, ecology, and design (volunteering in the Wissahickon right now), and always more about the crafts I know and new ones.
I’m really good at
Being sincere. Being goofy. Honesty. Making people laugh. Being observant and present. Befriending your pets. Book recommendations. Playing Four Square. Working Lord of the Rings references into conversations (now Game of Thrones, too).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: (this could go on for a while but here is a brief list) Moby Duck (not a typo); Catch-22; A Dirty Job; Lamb: the Gospel According to Biff, Christ's Childhood Pal; Crum (by Lee Maynard); Moby Dick; Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close; Everything is Illuminated; The Songs of Ice and Fire series (Game of Thrones books). Just finished Born to Run, The Age of Miracles, and The Scummers. As a genre, I've really been enjoying narrative non-fiction. Movies: Blazing Saddles, The Jerk, Rushmore, the Outlaw Josey Wales. While not my favorites, Be Kind, Rewind and Dirt:The Movie are incredibly inspirational to me (the book was good, too. really.) TV: Walking Dead, Game of Thrones. Music: White Stripes, Beatles, Nirvana, Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Pavement, the Who, Buddy Holly.
Six things I could never do without
Family and friends (including our cats and dogs of course) are a given so here's the rest:

The good guys
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why my dog who is 1/5 my size feels the need to take up 4/5 of the bed. How I can help the planet, even on a small scale. Why did whales evolve to move from the land to the sea? I realize I could Google this, but I'm more interested in the story. Like what was happening that proto-whale said, "fuck this. I'm out of here." (apparently the answer is just food).
On a typical Friday night I am
Stopping by happy hour to see friends, then hanging out with my dog (and maybe doing something crafty).
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Although I'm a dog dude, my spirit animal is Grumpy Cat.
You should message me if
We share a lot in common. I tend to be most drawn to women whom I share a lot of common interests, especially when it comes to making stuff, running, and nature. That being said, I enjoy when someone has passions different than mine that they can introduce me to (and vice versa). Having a similar sense of humor and being able to make me laugh is huge.
The two of us
