My self-summary
Just visiting.

I live by the principles of my influences: Monty Python, Looney Tunes, John Muir, Mad Magazine of the 1970’s, Richard Scarry, Dr. Seuss, Dr. Who, Leo Tolstoy, Mr. Rogers, The Clash, and Tom Robbins. For all who say you can't summarize yourself in a sentence, there's your proof it can be done.
What I’m doing with my life
dancing the funky superfly.
I’m really good at
I'm good at hearing people's thoughts and finding those who see past their own stereotypes and preconceived notions and can appreciate those who are odd or different. How about faults? Expressing feelings in ways that can be misconstrued, keeping in touch, planning social events, accepting praise, dispensing praise, thinking aloud, impatience, overly pragmatic. These lead people to say to say I am unemotional/heartless. Which is not true. I just checked and I have a beating heart in my chest. Then again, so does Dick Cheney, and he is a dick to the nth degree. So I'm not sure what that proves.
The first things people usually notice about me
I doze off at meetings. Someone pointed this out to me. I replied, "Yeah, I doze off so I can skip ahead to the important parts, like when I need to say something".
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Favorite book: "Still Life with Woodpecker" by Tom Robbins. Murakami, McCabe, and Oates are favorite authors.

Favorite movie: "Once Upon a Time in the West."

When asked, "if you could be anyone else who would you choose?" I inevitably choose Tom Waits. Except I don't get cranky if you take me fishing. Otherwise, based on my record collection, favorites are Screamin' Jay Hawkins, Syl Johnson, James Brown, Etta James, Ann Peebles, and Ohio Players. Oh, and Billy Stewart.

I love ice cream. Repeat: love ice cream. My favorite flavor of ice cream is "ate". If you think me to be date-able, ask me out for ice cream and I'll grab my coat right damn now.
The six things I could never do without
Dental floss, boots (I'm partial to my timber boots, and not because they make me a few inches taller), a pair of warm socks, my glasses (or contacts), a steady paycheck, and a quality pillow. Honorable mention to a perfectly conditioned antique cast iron skillet.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How this was not a hit.

How white people need minorities and immigrants to save us from ourselves in the upcoming election.

Why all my white friends stopped posting links to Daily Show videos since Trevor Noah took over, even though he is a better host/commentator than John Stewart. (Apparently I've been thinking a lot about race in America as of late.)

How the main difference between people at a Trump rally and a Sanders rally is the old hippies in the crowd.

The myth of sustainability and how it blows the minds of people when you explain to them how it's just a feel-good form of consumerism. (Needless to say I LOVE doing this in Madison.)
On a typical Friday night I am
I've read enough profiles to know y'all do the same things on Fridays, no matter how unique you claim yourself to be. Last Friday I did something I can guarantee none of you did: I accidentally climbed a 200 foot cliff with no safety equipment.

What makes that so unusual? I wasn't drinking a glass of wine when I did it.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
My favorite curse word is "jesusjumpingchristfuck."

I name the jumping spiders that keep the fruit flies away from my bananas.
You should message me if
Frankly, I cannot think of a good reason not to. (Hey, I used a double negative! So much for that elite private school education.) If you want to be engaged, be engaging, or are neutral good, messaging me would be a delight.

I've had people tell me that on a rainy day or when they are feeling down it's fun to answer my questions to read my explanation essays. You'll get entertainment value out of this profile or your money back.

You can message to say I'm a great writer but I'm not. If I am a great writer why am I writing things on a dating website instead of making a healthy living at writing?

Message if you have a good, simple dinner recipe to suggest.
