My self-summary
Easygoing but entertaining. True-blue but truthful. Realistic but optimistic. Strong enough for a man but made for a woman.
What I’m doing with my life
Besides looking for you? I spend a good deal of time increasing and interpreting knowledge, while appreciating and acknowledging non-knowledge (including biblical). In the meantime, I find that I never help myself more than when I help others.
I’m really good at
Wordplay, trivia, running (but let's just say it's been too long since my last marathon), chess, singing, listening, solving other people's problems, conversing with animals (you should hear what they say about us!)
The first things people usually notice about me
Blue eyes and one-liners
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
A Confederacy of Dunces, The Shawshank Redemption, The Daily Show, classic alternative (I'm listening to the MC cable channel right now - The Clash!), cherries
Second-favorites: Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail '72, The Philadelphia Story, The Rachel Maddow Show, 19th-Century Romantic (Brahms!), Eggplant Parmesan
(By the way, "Grease" could fit in every category [yes, there's a novelization based on the movie based on the musical, and a UK casting reality show].)

Sox, Pats, C's, B's, Gators, Gators. (13 championships in 14 years!)

Six things I could never do without
I can do without any "thing," so ...

Friends and Family
The ocean
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The human mind & how it interacts
Information (useful and otherwise)
The music in my head
Whether "More Conventionally Moral" is a compliment or an insult
Why mattress stores aren't open later
Why my poetry blog is popular with Russians (http://gpoesy.blogspot.com)
Rachel Maddow (I know, I know ...)
On a typical Friday night I am
living in the now. Now. (A funny-looking word, as are "one," "two," "four," "eight," "shoe," "awry," "juice," and "kumquat." [OK, "kumquat" really isn't in this category - I just wanted to write "kumquat." Kumquat. Kumquat juice.])
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm agnostic about agnosticism.
You should message me if
you're sick of going out with THAT guy.
The two of us
