My self-summary
Potential nerd alert. Read on!

Love to cook. Love good food and good wine. Really love someone in my kitchen distracting me with wine while I cook for them :) I cycle when the weather's good. Also in good weather, camping is fun. I listen to audiobooks when I can, mostly scifi and fantasy. I also listen to a ton of podcasts. I cut cable-tv out of my life years ago so if I can't get it online via Netflix, etc., I don't care about it. Oh, I do like to play pool - my Liverpudlian grandfather taught me billiards and snooker tho I am somewhat rusty.

I am a bit of a chivalrous gentleman (thanks, mom). It's still a thing guys can be. I'm an avid gamer, gadget enthusiast and tech maven. Also big into sci-fi and fantasy. I also love science and sciency things down to the depth of my being, tho I was never much good at anything beyond the computer science variety. The whole genre fascinates me - from cell biology to astrophysics to quantum mechanics to earth and planetary science to oceanography to atmospherics to zoology - love it all. I want to understand how it all works, from the very tiny to the very large.

The outdoors do not frighten me as a geek. Indeed, the interior of Algonquin is one of my favourite places. Camping or generally being "out in nature" is a thing I enjoy more than almost anything. In fact, as a city-dweller, it is a thing I miss a great deal.

My head is screwed on right and I am drama-free. Animals of all kinds seem to like me, which is good, because I like them. I am familiar with multi-syllabic words and am comfortable with same. I appreciate those same qualities in others. In other words, please be able to string together a coherent sentence - I like that in a woman!

I am somewhat shy to start and not all that confident in my ability to be charming lol. I have to screw up my courage quite a bit to message women first, so if you want to go ahead, I wont mind :) Besides, it is 2016. The old rules that suggest the guy has to make the first move seem a tad antiquated, no? Would love to hear from you

Oh, and as a standard disclaimer, please have photos. I do - it is only fair that you do as well. Please have more than a blurry headshot. Also, the clever artistic shots of nature instead of your face do not count. No pic at all? Please move along - I do not wish to waste my time nor yours. I want to know what you look like!

Women from the central Ottawa area only, please. I do not own a car and unless you seriously interest me, I ain't truckin' to Carp or Embrun.
What I’m doing with my life
Being a geek and loving it. Running the country (ok, not really, but I do work on the Hill). Working on improving myself.
I’m really good at
Being sarcastic and funny. Poking fun at life. Being of an even temperament. Making a tasty breakfast - I likes me bacon crispy :) Also, killer morning coffee.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm somewhat irreverent - titles and rank do not impress me. That, and the coke bottle specs.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Sci-fi and fantasy literature and movies. I like to see things go boom! As far as music goes, I am a child of the 70s and 80s but that does not limit me. I love me some jazz and roots, bluegrass, classical and celtic as well.
The six things I could never do without
Canada, the internet, bacon, beer, podcasts and good coffee.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
In no particular order: The state of things on this rock we all call home. The wonders of scientific and technological discovery. Women of a certain age. My next PC build.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out after work for a pint at my local. Or making a meal at home (wanna join me?)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Geekdom encompasses a lot. You'd be surprised what I like and it just might be something you like, too :)
You should message me if
You are in the central Ottawa area. You are geek-curious or want someone with a great sense of humour and don't mind a little chivalry.
