My self-summary
Me: Good condition with low miles; athletic (esp tennis!); honest; irreverent; liberal-minded; non-religious; selective; empathetic; introverted (until I get to know you); overworked; underloved; often sarcastic; drug, smoke, and disease/STD-free; love kids, animals, and good-hearted people. Btw, I can't see "likes," so if you're interested, shoot me a quick message.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a lawyer. I work in corporate litigation. Currently, I go after the "bad guys" (i.e., banks that screw people over). It's a living, but it def does not define me. I'm looking for something more useful/beneficial to humanity. I'm thinking I should probably be an English teacher. I need to look into that. Doing whatever I can to make sure my daughter (she's 22) is happy. Paying bills. Staying fit/healthy. Saving up for a nice home/farm with a pool, tennis court, and a big-ass yard for the rescue dogs/animals and chilluns that I want to have. Someday soon, I hope...
I’m really good at
Downshifting, handling the details; being a dad; taking care of kids; tennis; writing/editing; listening to & observing others; cracking jokes; planning vacations (Portugal, India, and Cuba are next, I think); knowing near-useless info about cars and motorcycles.
The first things people usually notice about me
No clue. Probably that I'm short, pale, and bald. I've been mistaken for Scott Hamilton, Ed Harris, and Ryan Gosling. Mostly Ryan Gosling ;-)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
BOOKS: Love 'em. A must-have at all times. Esp on the train to and from work. It's the one thing I look forward to every day. Current fav author is Khaled Hosseini (The Kite Runner, etc). Just read "12 Years a Slave." Xlnt. Very well-written. Currently reading Elon Musk's biography by Ashlee Wallace. Meh. Brilliant guy. Clearly an asshole and a cold-hearted prick, but def brilliant. Def plan to buy one of his cars.
SHOWS: I really like Shameless, Weeds, Breaking Bad, and Sons of Anarchy. Haven't watched much of anything lately though. And I just cut the cord and dropped cable. So there's Netflix. So I'm thinking all of the great documentaries will be interesting. I just watched "Blackfish" about Tillikum, the orca whale. Heartbreaking.
FAV MOVIES: Airplane!; Caddyshack; Fast Times at Ridgemont High; Cool Hand Luke; Office Space; The African Queen; No Country for Old Men; Dumb & Dumber; Deliverance; Gumball Rally; Pulp Fiction; The Godfather; Inglorious Basterds; Blood Diamond; Fargo; Meatballs!; My Cousin Vinny; Contact; Gangs of New York; the James James Bond series of movies
FOOD: I don't think animals should be killed for our mere culinary pleasure, so I do my best to avoid animal flesh. No cow, pig, lamb, etc. I'm not a nutcase about it, but I do my what I can. Every life matters. Thai, Indian, Japanese, Mexican; and Italian are my favs (esp pizza from Roberta's In Bushwick!); craft beer (esp Matilda by Goose Island)
MUSIC: Led Zep, The Who, Soundgarden, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Pink Floyd, Wolfmother, the Doors, Steely Dan, AC/DC, Nirvana, Hall & Oates, White Stripes, Rage Against the Machine, Black Sabbath, BeeGees, Rush, Guns 'n' Roses, Rolling Stones, Rod Stewart/the Faces, etc.
Six things I could never do without
Something to read
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Currently, Trumplethinskin is haunting my thoughts with the daily horrors he's engaged in. I am def NOT happy with him, his cronies, or the 62.8 million ignorant fools who voted for him.
My daughter. She's 22. I worry. Esp with Drumpf as president.
Animals' plight. Or, more accurately, our willingness to ignore the torture and murder of animals so that we can enjoy the fleeting pleasure of eating their flesh. If I was king, I'd ban all killing of animals for food. We'd get over it. We don't need hot dogs, steak, pulled pork, lamb chops, hamburgers, chicken parm, etc. We just don't. Ugh. :-(
Massive income inequality in the U.S.
Hungry children.
Water and air pollution and global warming.
Meeting someone nice. As in kind. And funny. Who is single. And attracted to me. I worry that's never going to happen. It's a lonely world out there. Gotta change that.
On a typical Friday night I am
...either at the gym, playing tennis, or at home, online, looking for a more interesting job and where to go on my next vacation. I'm not a big fan of bars/clubs, although I wouldn't mind shooting some pool, playing some ping pong, or catching some live music.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I dislike cigarettes, rollercoasters, mayonnaise, lobster, capers, trout pouts/botoxed lips, corpulence, Kim Kardashian, poorly maintained teeth, and most Republicans.
You should message me if are kind, have a great sense of humor, you aren't self-absorbed, have no STD's, like to laugh, are liberal-minded, like kids and animals, are not super-religious or married, and don't smoke. Also, if you're cold, emotionally distant, repressed, mean-spirited, bitter, angry, racist, or spiteful, then we won't be a good match.
If you like what you've read, shoot me a message. If I think there might be a spark, we'll meet for a drink and/or a bite to eat. Thx!
The two of us
