My self-summary
One of my friends called me "the guy you marry, not the guy you date." I'm still not entirely sure what it meant. Was it a compliment? I think I'm a nice guy. Definitely not an emotional game player.

I value honesty & communication. You will always know where you stand with me.

I love wandering around the City finding interesting little nooks & crannies, being outdoors, watching movies, making dinner together, and a bunch of other random little things. I do enjoy doing community service, and am a strong beliver that we should always give back.

I love repartee. I love talking and joking back & forth. My friends are all smart & funny, and just hanging around with them shooting the breeze can be a great day (especially if picnics are involved!)
What I’m doing with my life
It's important to me that my work matter, that it help people. I have been in the non-profit world for many years, and that's where I want to stay.
I’m really good at
Gentle mockery? Thoughtfulness? Emotional openness? Communication? Baking brownies? I really don't know which direction to go with this one.
The first things people usually notice about me
My laugh or my eyebrows (I was once asked if they were plucked. No, they aren't..)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'm a big reader and huge movie fan. I like to read non-fiction mostly, although I love to just go to the library and see what grabs me.

A few movies I like enough to own - Once, Empire Strikes Back, Waiting for Guffman, Much Ado About Nothing and the Dark Crystal. Although, I will watch just about anything - from blockbuster to indy documentary.
Six things I could never do without
In no particular order:

1. My friends
2. Boardgames with good friends
3. Burritos
4. Laughing at myself & life in general
5. Coke (the soft drink, not the hard drug - although they are probably about equally bad for you)
6. My bike
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why so many people are 5% my enemy. Which 5%? Does your foot really hate me? Or your Zyphoid Process?

OK, that was really just an excuse to say Zyphoid Process. I'll cop to that.

Why we call them pineapples, when the rest of the world calls them something like Ananas (their proper name)
On a typical Friday night I am
Usually home decompressing. Maybe catching up on my Tivo or watching a movie. Vainly seeking affection from my 2 cats. Or, catching a movie at the Alameda Theatre, just to enjoy the art deco lobby.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
In college I went to a toga party with a toga using my only pair of sheets - with Disney characters all over them.

Oh, and I love show tunes. Wait, come back..
You should message me if
You love finding hole in the wall restaurants and exploring the Bay Area. You are not a big club person (except for the odd 80s dance party. Heh.) You love people, and personal interactions. You are a good communicator, and are honest with your partner.

Wouldn't hurt if you like minigolf, and one day want to be my partner on the Amazing Race.
The two of us
