My self-summary
I had some poetry wank here earlier. I deleted it all, but I couldn't just start with the next line. that would sound too pompous. it needs a little buffer. ok. ready? here we go.

I am literally the funniest, most charming man on the planet.

No really what do you put here? uhmmmm.. I've always been a cat person but I'm thinking about getting a dog. [edit: got dog. cutest german shepherd ever] I prefer dark chocolate and crinkly, caramelized cheese to whatever the alternatives to those are. DILF. Kinda over 'the scene.' But there's got to be something cool going on, right? Or maybe I'm just hangin with the wrong people.

Generally more interested in having quiet, unique moments than having some sort of standard, ready-made experience we've been taught to ape from off the teevee. Yes, i'm one of those don't have a tv jerks (who also watches plenty of crap on this computer).

More? Less? too much? Not enough? I smell good and do right when I can.
What I’m doing with my life
taking care of kids, unsure of the future, we make up songs about poop and kung fu.

the future is a flowchart. I've just come out of this.. toddlerhood tunnel, where i didn't see a lot of friends. I'm really trying to fix that. Spending time with other adults using multiple syllables with impunity. How nice does that sound!

Working part time at the moment. It's a start! (cue over the top smile and two thumbs up) I'm trying to get back into actually working, as I've been a stay-at-home dad for the last few years, and I kinda forgot what having a work schedule was like. Or wearing actual pants, not just whatever, relaxing, comfortable, vaguely exercise related pants, the uniform of the stay-at-home.
I’m really good at
hangin out, melting cheese, stacking blocks, makin bacon, paper planes, witty quipicisms... Look, I bring nothing to the table besides a sandwich. Just move on.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm very tall and I have one of those faces. Like, I look like an actor from some movie but no one can remember his name or which movie.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
the word favorite is not my favorite.

Books! I used to read a lot. Lately I've been reading nothing beyond the classics of kid lit. The bests so far: AA Milne's Winnie the Pooh, Carrol's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, and EB White's Stuart Little. For myself, I just started A Game of Thrones and yes, I like it. It's actually quite a nice story that I can focus on, as opposed the constant boobs on the tv show of the same name. Which, i mean yeah I like. But come on guys, low hanging fruit.

I have pretty eclectic music tastes. I know everyone says that. I used to dj on KUSF for years, so I have a pinch of street cred when I say it. But I'm generally able to enjoy quality music from any genre if I'm in the right mood.

organic, seasonal, grass fed, shade grown, cruelty free, farmer direct, carbon negative, solar powered, sustainably produced, simply prepared foods. <---said with irony, but it's also how I roll.

Growing tomatoes, strawberries, lettuce, kale, and eggs right now. Trying to keep the garden zone simple. It is becoming complicated. berry bushes and fruit trees!


willing to try anything more than once
Six things I could never do without
health and knowledge and wealth and power
passion and poems and sex
I spend a lot of time thinking about
certain people

situations, moments from the past that maybe didn't go quite right. Or other moments that went perfectly.

Leaves fall in the breeze, the laughter of children. Little rainbows diffracting around my eyelashes.

the demise of the middle class. drone strikes. whistle blowers.

robots. the future. what might have been.
On a typical Friday night I am
on the internet. watchin the teevee. whatever, man. Amateur hour, if you ask me. On a typical wednesday afternoon tho? Man I could be having all sorts of crazy adventures. Or. something.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have a complicated home life.

I worry that my living arrangement, which is basically living with my ex (and her current dude) and our kids is off putting to prospective dates. While we're not in a romantic relationship, we still have to coordinate our schedules and I end up spending most of my non-work evenings putting the kids to bed (which is great, but can also tire me out to the point where I don't want to go out..)

I guess my point is that I don't want to come off as aloof or toying with anyone's feelings. But I do have a sorta familial commitment that is predominant in my life. It's not a permanent situation by any means, but it's what I'm working with at the moment. I do want to go out and spend time with adults in the world, I do I do. Really.
You should message me if
if you're smart, cute, open, fun, caring, honest, silly, bored, etc. If you're still reading or especially if you just skipped down to this part first. If you think anything I said was interesting. If you can bare me seeing you in my visitors section and knowing you didn't. Oh.. How dare you? HOW DARE YOU.
The two of us
