My self-summary
A successful professional with a six figure job looking for the right woman...

just wondering... how can someone be a 90+% match but a 20+% enemy? somebody has some 'splaining to do.......

why do you want to meet me....? because i'll corrupt your morals....?because I'm a jazz drummer. (well, at least I hope to be--we all gotta have dreams!) That makes me the rarest of breeds-- a straight, white guy who has command of poly-rythms and odd-time signatures!

...and I have a cool dog (who makes me go running in the morning), and I'm not so bad either..... Oh, and I'm a good cook, like old movies (like black and white ones, even), and the outdoors (biking, hiking, camping, skiing). learning to play Go nowadays... Not too obsessive about any one activity--I try to enjoy many different things and get out and enjoy life. Both parents were artists, but I'm the logical son (seemingly!).

'cause i'm an independent cuss, but i'll always respect your opinions. 'cause when i'm being nice, it's probably 'cause
i want to be naughty.... So much more that i can't think

eclectic is a good word to describe me.

(p.s. - kurzhaar is the german name for the breed of one of my late dog--who was a very kool dog.... lord knows i'm not kool at all; kinda nerdy actually)

I am smart, fun, and creative
What I’m doing with my life
Just bought and moved into a new house (new to me and the animals... that is). Trying to get our bearings....

Helping my cat and dog get along in peace and harmony..... :-)

Just got a new DSLR (Jan 2012).... am exploring the world of pictures in a way I haven't in almost twenty-five years since I got my first film SLR.....

My goal this summer (2012) is to get back into sailing. Which I did a lot of when I was a teenager, but not so much since.... ;-) Which hasn't happened because I've been involved in trying to buy a home--a shortsale and it's been going on for five months! I think we maybe almost there.... but who knows...?
I’m really good at
Playing chess and go... playing drums.... kissing.... history.... movie trivia.....
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm not sure... My eyes..? My intelligence...? My loyalty...?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I don't have a favorite book--there are too many.... "Casablanca" is my favorite film.... for music--any kind of jazz or blues will set me off to somewhere... and I could eat sushi any or every day of the week.... really enjoyed "Blue at the Mizzen"--and no it was not a dirty story..... Geez get your head out of the gutter! At least occasionally... ;-)
Six things I could never do without
and a good single malt scotch couldn't hurt... ;-)
also, apparently, ellipses.... :-p
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The inhumanity of humanity..........
The colossal stupidity of humanity.........
Why otherwise, very intelligent, human beings have no interest in reading or learning, and do very stupid things.......
On a typical Friday night I am
Catching up on my netflix, snuggling with my dog and cat, enjoying a drink....
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm not the easiest person to get to know; but if you do, I will be your most loyal and trusting friend.... On Meyers-Briggs, I am an INTJ....
You should message me if
you're myrna loy in the "Thin Man" movies. failing
that, someone who loves sushi and my dog. Can go from camping
to the opera in minutes flat (or at least to Jimmie Maks!).
Loves tennis and long, slow, wet kisses. Isn't intimidated
by my chess playing--might be willing to challenge me to
a game on occasion (I'll make it worth your while ;)--if
you're a Scrabble player, i'll give you a run for
your money. Likes Stanley Kubrick, Monty Python, and Akira
Kurosawa. Enjoying life a must. Enjoying baseball a bonus......
The two of us
