My self-summary
Sooooooooo, I've been on and off of here a bunch of times over the past few years, as have a lot of you. It seems like there's a group of us who come and go, working the circuit, sometimes disappearing (yay, there's hope) and then, for the most part, resurfacing again.

I refuse to become jaded about it! I'm back, as willing and eager as ever.

However, I have no idea what to write here. I've tried a few different approaches, but alas, I'm still here. So, here are some words that are important to me:

Hard work
Good TV

All I want is someone awesome to grow old with who can make me laugh and I know will always have my back.

Let's go out and have fancy-pants good times, but let's also stay in and binge watch TV and drink box wine in our ugly comfy clothes.
What I’m doing with my life
See above. Good career. House with room for more people.
I’m really good at
Fixing anything.

Going out and staying in.

Figuring stuff out.

Getting out of town for the weekend and doing something random with little or no plan.

Solving problems, from emotional ones to that weird noise your car makes.

Hanging out with kids.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I generally appear to be relaxed, regardless of the situation or stress level.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Easy Rider, Napoleon Dynamite, The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, LOTR, Lonesome Dove, Caddyshack. I recently watched "No Country for Old Men" and when it ended I said out loud, "hey, wait, what the fuck?" which is a sign of a truly good movie to me.

Better Call Saul!

Netflix roped me in and I may need to get into some sort of rehab program. However, I'm all caught up on Sons of Anarchy, The Walking Dead, Breaking Bad and Mad Men, which has me wanting to do my hair better and drink more whiskey...but not smoke...or philander, at least not to such an extent.

Really great burgers and other red meat-related dishes. Pub-style fish & chips. I freakin' LOVE brussels sprouts. Good veggie food. Not super into sushi, but if I like you enough I can pretend. Train me! I recently ate octopus soup, and finished my bowl, because it was the socially-appropriate thing to do under the circumstances. I feel I am capable of anything now. EDIT: still struggling with sushi. Hope that's not as much of a dealbreaker as your profiles make it sound.

Most recent: The Martian, Wonderland Avenue, Monster, Crazy from the Heat. Richard Feynman (#1), Jon Krakauer, Carl Hiaasen. Sometimes things like The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo and the Hunger Games trilogy to satisfy my pop-culture-y side. I recently wrote my high school English teacher asking for a reading list, so I can read the classics for pleasure instead of under duress this time around (update: holy crap he gave me a list that's going to keep me busy for years!).

There's always one big book that I'm reading to my girls, and currently it's the Harry Potter series.

Royal Blood! Zep, Stones, Jimi, Ben Folds, Morrissey, The Smiths, The Cure, Duran Duran (extra points if you know where they got the name), LMFAO, Chemical Brothers, Ween, TMBG, Weezer, Beck, eminem, Dr. Dre & Snop Dogg, Jay-Z, Willie, Waylon, Kris, King Missile, New Duncan Imperials...

The Conet Project (not really music, but the weirdest, most mesmerizing, most intriguing thing ever)

Kids in the Hall (My pen!!!)
Six things I could never do without
- Machines
- The outdoors
- Red meat
- Tools
- Freedom
- A comfortable helmet

Basically 'Murica stuff. But don't worry, I'm not a Trump guy. Just a good old fashioned middle-of-the-road free thinker (and feeling more and more alone in that respect these days).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
why women are so shocked when I open the car door for them. Why is this unusual?
On a typical Friday night I am
trying to get out, working on something around the house, or vegging out to recover from the week.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have shirtless bathroom mirror selfies.

Well, just one, taken as a joke, but I like it so I secretly kept it.
You should message me if
...you want to get out of the house for an evening.

...you have a sense of humor and you're not afraid to use it.

...you are an intelligent, friendly, fit, self-confident woman with an active life of her own but room to share it. Energy and passion are important to me, as are emotional maturity and honesty. Be independent but need me at the same time.

And ladies! You're not the only ones who get lame one-word messages. C'mon -- just because you wield all the power doesn't mean you shouldn't put some effort in!
The two of us
