My self-summary
New, condensed profile. Potential nerd alert. Read on!

Me: Love to cook, tho I am no gourmet. Really love someone in my kitchen distracting me with wine while I cook for them :) I cycle when the weather's good. The outdoors do not frighten me as a geek. Indeed, the interior of Algonquin is one of my favourite places. I listen to audiobooks when I can, mostly scifi and fantasy. I also listen to a ton of podcasts. I love science and sciency things down to the depth of my being, All of it 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.

You: Your head is screwed on right and are drama-free. Please be familiar with multi-syllabic words and be comfortable with same. Mostly-complete sentences with punctuation and grammar are appreciated. Being somewhat shy, I appreciate your ability to be charming. If you want to go ahead and message me first, 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. Not listed but critical is gaming. Big MMO fan. Also action 1st person games. RPGs, too.
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?) More than likely gaming.
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.
