My self-summary
Middle aged white guy with intelligence and creativity. Shaved head with a coat and tie, and no complaints. Polycompetent, largely autodidact, I refuse to be patronized, and return the favor. I do not discuss politics.

I am charming, desireable, and froglike. Currently recovering from encounter with Metro bus. Broken ankle and foot will keep me in wheelchair and out of dancing shoes for while. (Now updated to crutches and the possibility of a stylish walking stick!)

But you should see the bus!. I've been in a LTR with a very dear woman who died 3 Sept 2015. I can flirt, I can chat (though I don't IM), but my heart is heavy, and my soul is burdened, although our last words together were "I love you" and "I love you too".

Currently, I'm homebound, heartbroken, and unemployed. I've managed to avoid picking up a major opiate habit in hospital (Yay Me). I will take a drink.

Be told.
What I’m doing with my life
I rather enjoy my work (the design and fabrication of museums), although I wish it were more financially rewarding. I'm the father of 2 sons (pre driving license age) on whom I dote on alternate weekends and more frequently when their mom allows. I'm semi-retired from the music business, but am looking forward to some studio work n Austin sometime this fall See supra.
I’m really good at
engineering-type analysis (critical path analysis &c), Musical instruments (I play maybe a dozen at levels from master to please-for-the-love-of-god-stop), fixing things, making things.
The first things people usually notice about me
My posture
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Currently reading: Graham Greene
Robert Rankin
Evelyn Waugh
Terry Pratchett
Adam Smith
Walker Percy
Roughly 500 blogs. (Well, look at my bookmarks folder. Realio, trulio)

I really can't remember the last time I went to a first run movie. It may have been the first Indiana Jones movie. I don't own a TV. I used to watch the Astros on radio, but I.don't so much anymore.

Food: I don't eat out for that which I can cook - that means I get my Italian, French and Mexican mostly at home, but I do love to cook. For recreational food, I like Vietnamese, and chicken fried stuff. I raised my kids on "schnitzel" but I just don't wanna clean up after it anymore. I will make exceptions for alligator and mastadon. And probably zebra, but just to complete the alphabet. (SRSLY, a bud found some Siberian mastadon but I didn't trust the storage. And I've heard about a herd of rainbow farting zebracorns, but for my part I'm willing to wait until i get a good, verifiable, steak from one).

I've played guitar and sung in front of people since I was...what? 14? I have Johnny and June playing at the moment, but mostly listen to second generation blues; Rory Gallagher, Albert Collins, distinct guitar voices.
Six things I could never do without
Another E (I use the standard tuning, even for slide)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why the intuitively obvious is neither intuitive nor obvious, -OR- why Common Sense isn't
On a typical Friday night I am
Movie & pizza with the sons/laundry/musical gig/taking over the world (same as every other day, Pinky)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I just bought 14 identical pair of socks, and am throwing out all my old socks.
And the new ones are all purple. Me and Monsignor Quixote.

OTBE. .The purple socks ended up getting alll linty and picking up twigs and such. It is not possible to have an even number of socks
You should message me if
You have a giggling bone in your body.
Seriously, the "looking for" category lists "casual sex? I wouldn't know how to dress for that. Or undress, as the case may be. Hell, I worked as an artist's model for some years. Just like Sean Connery, and Ronald Reagan.
The two of us
