I just moved back to California after spending the last 25 years in Indiana. So if you're willing to show the new guy around I'm always looking for new places and things to do in the area.
If you like fun and a sometimes odd sense of humor then you might be in the right place. I'm a tall skinny somewhat nerdy guy with a passion for science, technology, information, cars, airplanes, and having a good time. I like to settle into familiar patterns but am always willing to try something or go somewhere new. I am always ready with a joke or sarcastic comment, and I appreciate someone who can give back with a snappy comeback on occasion. I am looking for someone who shares an enthusiasm for finding the joy in life, who I could spend hours with discussing everything from current events to politics to which superpower would be the best. I like Fencing, Skiing, going to airshows and car shows, watching football, and going to baseball games.
I love to learn and to share that knowledge with others. I am a Math tutor and I find it to be one of the most rewarding things I have ever done.
Books: I love to read, especially historical non-fiction. Right now I'm reading a book called "Is Pluto a Planet"
Movies: The Hunt for Red October, Star Wars, Snatch, Boondock Saints, The 5th Element, Hulk, Super Troopers, Full Metal Jacket, Death Race 2000, Dogma, The Lord of the Rings (all three movies), Batman Begins, Fahrenheit 9/11, Death to Smoochy, 300, Transformers.
TV Shows: Top Gear, Battlestar Galactica, Dr. Who, Red Dwarf, House, Wonderfalls, Star Trek, Monk, Firefly, Almost anything on the History Channel, Babylon 5, Get Smart, Heroes, Stargate SG1, Star Trek DS9.
Music: Anything that isn't country.
Food: I'll eat pretty much anything. My favorites include (but are not limited to) Mexican, Italian, Greek, Chinese, Thai, and Indian.
I'm a mediocre cook but a serious griller. Meat, poultry, sides, you name it I can grill it. I am a charcoal purist but I did break down and get a gas grill simply for the ease of use.
