My self-summary
Life is good. I'm happy in my own skin and have enjoyed a relatively full life so far. A relationship can put spice into an otherwise well-balanced existence. If I find one, so much the better; if not, life is still good.

I am sincere, broken-in, and funny (ha ha)
What I’m doing with my life
Enjoying life in all its many aspects. Work fills a good percentage of my time, and is a somewhat 'necessary evil.' I need the health benefits and will for the forseeable future (depending upon what the collective brain trust in D.C comes up with), it's nice to have the money, and playing golf all the time would bet boring in a hurry. I'm fortunate in that I have a 'hobby' that I both enjoy and that provides a bit of income. If we ever get national health insurance, I'll probably convert the hobby into my occupation.
I’m really good at
Fixing things.
Cooking.
Keeping small children entertained for short periods of time.
Telling jokes.
Crossword puzzles.
Trivial pursuit.
Jeopardy.
Laughing.
Not locking my keys in my truck.
The first things people usually notice about me
My long eyelashes and deep voice, followed by my wicked sense of humor, if they stick around long enough to experience it.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Spy novels, John LeCarre, Len Deighton, Robert Ludlum, how-to books, biographies, humor, history. Movies run the gamut from the Bourne trilogy to The Simpsons' Movie (which was a disappointment) to Meet Joe Black. One of my favorites is The Commitments.

Ah, food! I enjoy many varieties, but in a finicky way. Examples: I like cheese on hamburgers, but not if it's melted on; but I like grilled cheese sandwiches. I like most kinds of pasta, but can't stand macaroni and cheese; I like broccoli with cheese sauce, or raw, or with dip, but not steamed broccoli. Weird, huh?
The six things I could never do without
Sleep, coffee, chocolate, milk, comfortable shoes, my tools.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Creating new variations of the items I make as a 'hobby.'
How reality television can be so incredibly stupid and yet so incredibly popular at the same time.
Why many people seem so obsessed with celebrity for its own sake.
The demise of newspapers.
How to make money from the internet without scamming anybody (or selling porn).
A plot for the best-seller that I'll probably never write.
On a typical Friday night I am
There is no typical Friday night. There are times when Tuesday morning can be my Friday night. I'm sure Cupid or the Staff Robot (or both) were well-intentioned in formulating this question, but it implies a certain rigidity that is anathema to me.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Believe it or not, I can't think of anything that people I'm close to don't already know. It's kind of like buying a six-pack and the cashier asks if I want a bag. I always replay, "No thanks, everybody knows I drink."
You should message me if
You're a woman (yeah, I've had messages from guys....not that there's anything wrong with that, I'm just not into it); you're intelligent; you can spell; you have a sense of humor; you want to send me money (unless I have to send you some first, give you my bank info, are from Nigeria, etc., etc.).
