My self-summary
I'm a poly, kinky bi guy in SEATTLE who's NOT looking for another Long-Distance Relationship. I am a science fiction fan and an avid cyclist - so much so that I've never owned a car. I love music with great lyrics and can talk about it for hours. I also like word games, both in the "Scrabble" and "Boggle" sense of the word and in the "making cheap and corny puns" cents of the word.

I'm seeing CelticWisdom on this site.

I am quirky, insightful, and independent
What I’m doing with my life
Working as a computer geek consultant starting an MSW program in the fall. Also seeking enlightenment through careful attention to the cycles of my life (and my bicycle wheels).
I’m really good at
Making music compilations, thinking about leftist political theory, living simply, massage, consensual play.
The first things people usually notice about me
I've got dreadlocks and I wear two differently-colored shoes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
NOTE: if I've read, seen, or listened to almost everything by someone (and am willing to admit it :-) then I've marked them as one of my interests.

I'm a vegetarian (but not a picky eater and you don't *have* to be one yourself). I especially like carbs!

Six things I could never do without
Cycling, good friends, making the world a better place, music, alone time, and sex.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
what Utopia would look like and how to get there. And how to make a world that works for everyone rather than just a few.
On a typical Friday night I am
teaching, going out, renting a video, reading a book, killing time on the internet, listening to music, talking to friends on the phone... I don't *have* typical Friday nights :-).
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have over 15 stuffed animals and sleep with some of them (not in that way!). Personal favorites include Opus the Penguin and Max 3 the Clip-On Koala Bear, who lives on my bicycle's right seat stay (and has a velcro seat-belt since Max 1 left me in San Francisco as I bicycled down the coast to Tijuana in 2004 (Max 2 is still on the frame of the bike that got rear-ended and totalled in 2012, and Max 3 is on the frame of my new Rivendell Hunqapillar).
You should message me if
you think it's a good idea. Or if you think it's a bad idea but want to do it anyway.

Either way, please understand that I'm not monogamous and not looking to become so. I wish you the best of luck if you are, but let's not waste each other's time if that's what you're looking for.
The two of us
