I'm a desert rat/former chef who recently transplanted to the Twin Cities in search of adventure and minions to further my goals of world conquest and drinking all of the tasty beverages this lovely area has to offer. Do you know where the best beer, food, music, nerd games, coffee, waterfalls, dogs, art or hiking trails of the city are? If you do, I will trade delicious home-made food, beers, cuddles, massages, or time with my unfairly adorable (it's seriously such bullshit) dog for this knowledge! It's a unique opportunity, with potential for future barter!
I'm in an open relationship, so I'm mostly looking for new friends (maybe with benefits later...after 6 months I provide medical/dental and a 401k). I recently changed my orientation to bi: I've had a couple experiences with men that I'd like to explore further, though I'm in a serious relationship with a woman and enjoy having adventures/making out with ladies.
I laugh and swear a lot, I draw most of my powers from my beard, and I talk to people on buses.
Board games. Huge nerd over here. Empire is always a solid date.
Reaching things on the top shelf. I'm always happy to help my vertically challenged friends.
Building a fire when it's raining and the wood is wet and you forgot to bring a good shell and everyone is tired and cold and hungry and grumpy.
Apocalyptic scenarios. Do YOU have a robot apocalypse plan? Because you SHOULD.
A decent kitchen with a sharp chef knife. Food is a pretty central aspect of my life.
The occasional-to-frequent death-nap.
Trees and stars.
Fresh stories about crazy things to swap over GOOD beers with equally interesting people.
Something to play or sing or hum, if only in my head.
Apocalyptic scenarios. I've sorta always enjoyed the idea of everything going to shit. It sorta boils things down in interesting ways.
Music. I tend to find a new artist I like and obsess for a few weeks and then move on to something else (though a lot of artists sorta hang out in the periphery and are absorbed osmotically). Currently having a moment over Brownbird, Bach's Orgenwerke and Murder by Death.
Food. www.foodporndaily.com. It's not a porn site, and it makes me soooo happy.
How best to live life. My ideals tend to straddle the gap between lazy sensuous generally cat-like days and seizing visceral experiences that scare me a little. I've never been able to decide between the two, and don't particularly feel a need to.
How best to save the world. I'm generally of the opinion that there's a lot of big issues that need work in the world (energy, resources, poverty, climate change and resultant species die-offs being the big one/s for me) and spend a lot of time thinking about how to go about making things better.
