Yeah, i should expand this. Think I'll go for a walk instead. (For now)
I am Shiny, Irreverent, and Irrelevant
I am off the "market" for a while as I seem to keep foundering on my attempts to get past a first date. I recognize that I have three fairly serious red flags for women: One is that fitness level is simply not what I would like to to be, second is the financial issues attendant with having recently begun a new career and third is the simple fact that I have not been in what I would characterize as a serious relationship since the early 90s, though two undergraduate degrees, law school and getting started as an attorney. The third will not be entirely amenable to self-help, of course, but I've been working on the other two. I'm fitter than I was a year ago. (Those are not little mountains in the photos from last summer). However, I would simply like to have to haul less weight up them next summer. Progress is currently slowed due to a nagging rotator-cuff injury, but I'm getting there. The second is coming along improving slowly but steadily, and I actually will pass a milestone on that front December 6th. So for the meantime, I will leave this profile active, mainly because I'm going to be too lazy to fill it out again. If you are interested in writing, please do. But I am not looking to date at this time.
Addendum to the addendum, 8/14/11
I've been trying to think about how to rewrite this, but failing miserably. Lets just say that the fitness thing has taken a setback due to the shoulder problem. (Amazing how much we use that joint, and how it effects seemingly non-related motion) Finally started lifting weights again, though, although it will be a while coming back to my fitness level of a year ago. The financial continues to improve, abet slowly in this economy. Haven't been on a "date" in nearly a year. However, it would be nice to go to a movie with someone besides my current crop of friends, walk around downtown after tea at the crumpet shop, take a stroll over to the Locks after dinner in Ballard, perhaps someone to hike with, or some such. Looking more for someone to do things with more than anything else at the moment, but amenable to something more long term if it rapped me upside the head.
Anyone? Anyone. Bueller?
It also occurred to me how nice it would have been if you had been around while I was wandering around the city looking at leaves yesterday. The old part of Cap Hill around Volunteer Park was particularly nice.
Wondering what this whole "friend"/"enemy" thing signifies...
