My work is very structured and mostly enjoyable, once it is over I leave it behind till the next day or till after the weekend.
Writing: I do not do it often, but I write very well: horror tales, poetry and I dabble in erotica from time to time.
Listening: Yes, a man who does listen...believe it or not!
Empathizing: I play Devil's Advocate almost too well. It is in my nature to always look at both sides of an issue...it's the only way to be sure. Unless the answer is obvious...Evolution Deniers need not apply.
Being Romantic: It's Tuesday so I brought you (something I know you like) I am famous for R.A.A. (Random Acts of Affection)
Now let us flip the Coin.
I'm really bad at:
Juggling: sorry...was that expensive?
Understanding why people do some of the stupid shit they do.
Lying. Don't do it well and don't ever see the need.
Maybe my eyes, they are a deep gray. I have been told they are very sensual: which does suit my personality.
Right now I am reading The Better Angels of Our Nature by Steven Pinker.
Dune (Frank Herbert's six books; not his detestable hack of a son)
Lord the Rings
The Dark Tower
Ghost Story (best horror novel ever imo)
The last 3 HP books. I re-read these for pleasure every year or so.
Science Based Medicine.
Christopher Htchens (if only I could write with such wit - and drink as much top shelf scotch!)
Stephen Kinzer ( I am a big history buff.)
Agatha Christie. I love Poirot.
Shakespeare. (Henry IV. esp. If you have not heard it with Richard Griffiths as Falstaff, go to the BPL and get the Arkangel CD's ASAP.)
The Princess Bride (everyone says this one, and everyone is right!),
Dawn of the Dead. (Best Horror movie of all time.)
Shaun of the Dead. (Best Spoof of all time.)
Secondhand Lions. (very warm and sweet)
The Haunting. (Camera angles can be scary)
Robin Hood (The Erol Flynn version)
Anything Mel Brooks up until Men in Tights.
The Last 3 Batman Movies.
The Human Centipede (kidding! Kidding!)
Shows: The Soup
Robot Chicken NFL Football
Iron Chef America Chopped Diners, Drive-ins and Dives.
Daily Show, The Young Turks, Real Time with Bill Maher....gee can you guess my socio-political stance?
I listen to a lot of Podcasts: Skeptics Guide, Caustic Soda, Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me! Penn's Sunday School. Cognitive Dissonance, Hardcore History.
Music: Devin Townsend (current favourite), Peter Gabriel, Pink Floyd, Dream Theater, Evanescence. Vivaldi, Diana Krall. Red Hot Chili Peppers. Tori Amos.
I have a passion for complex music with powerful singers
Food: All Kinds. I am very good cook. I enjoy mixing foods from different ethnic areas: Pasta Sauce with Herbs de Provance and Harissa would be a good example. I have a talent for trying something at a restaurant and then trying to make it as good or better at home. I make a Chipotle Chicken and Corn Chowder that 100x better than the one at California Pizza Kitchen. I would love to find someone special to go through Zagats with, one place at a time.
The best thing I have ever eaten is the Dobin Mushi at Fugakyu in Brookline...The nectar of the Gods! I only wish I could get the Dashi right, it's the one thing that I just can't prepare properly.
Conversation: I love learning about people and discussing almost anything
Passion: About everything: from loving to learning.
Laughter: Two blondes walk into a Bar: one ducks.
Education: Critical Thinking is sadly not taught nearly enough. What good is knowledge without the ability to use it?
Friends: I have a couple of dear, awesome friends, and that is how I like it.
Why do you drive on a parkway, but park in a driveway?
I am looking for a serious relationship with a wonderful woman - who wants to come home to someone special; someone to share fun times and build a happy relationship with.
If you are: joyful, strong, confident, sensual - in both mind and body - and intelligent; if you want to have as much fun and passion as possible in a relationship and/or friendship, then...you know what to do.
