My self-summary
Why don't more people start their profiles with rhetorical questions?

I'm sarcastic. I tease and enjoy being teased. I give out nicknames.

People ask why put pictures of your pets. Because I love my doggie, that's why.

I enjoy politics, economics, culture, and I dislike Trump with a passion.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a novelist. Yes, professional. I quit computer programming to do my dream job. It's still work, but very few people can honestly say they are doing what they've wanted to do all their lives. I'm extremely lucky.

I live at the beach. I enjoy the lifestyle. The last 15ish years of my life it has been 75 degrees with a breeze. It's easy to get used to that.
I’m really good at
I'm left-brained and right-brained. Many years a computer techy, many years a writer. Being silly and making people laugh.
The first things people usually notice about me
Tall, funny, and smart. I'm like a less gay Oscar Wilde--who isn't dead.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
BBC and NPR. I had to reactivate my cable tv because I got tired of not seeing CNN and CNBC. News and financial news.

I love movies and literature and just about all kinds of fiction and non-fiction. Some of my favorite movies are Amadeus, City of Lost Children, Road Warrior, Wizard of Oz, The Fall, Mr. and Mrs. Smith, The Lady Eve and The Thin Man.

Books: I read a lot of books. Noir, sci-fi, fantasy, biographies/history. I love my Kindle. I read a fair amount.

TV: Family Guy/American Dad! I go on big Netflix binges like most people it seems.

Music ranges from hip hop to techno to industrial to disco to classic rock.

Food. I've started cooking more. I've gotten decent at chicken curry.
Six things I could never do without
-Some kind of exercise
-Entertainment (books, movies, games)
-3 other things
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Writing. Daydreaming.

Why every woman on here has as a requirement that men must know the difference between your, you're and yore. Really? That's like a top ten? Or even top hundred? I'm a professional writer and can diagram sentences until the participles come home, but isn't there a whole lot of things more important in life?

Why people can't answer what they're doing with their life and have to put some kind of "living it" or "owning it." Is it because they are embarrassed of their jobs? Not everyone gets to be a ninja rocket scientist doctor, but we spend an awful lot of our time working.
On a typical Friday night I am
Days of the week don't mean much to me other than I know I can't schedule a doctor's appointment or check investments on weekends.

I walk my dog. A lot. I go out. I read. I watch movies.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm not incredibly private. I'm generally not ashamed of what I do and like. Maybe that's the private thing I'm admitting. Irony.
You should message me if
I've found I get along best with are cute, athletic, young at heart. Funny, smart and sarcastic are musts. Also, I feel I need to add this: have your shit together. Or at least be on a good trajectory. Thanks, and best of luck.

I felt I should add that I'm not looking for kids. If you are, I wish you the best. I don't dislike kids at all. But that's not remotely the same as wanting some of my own.
