My self-summary
I'm watching Chef's Table. It's great. I'm only two episodes in, and I already realize I missed my calling. Except I hate yelling at people. So I'll just keep puttering around my kitchen and continue to enjoy what I turn out.

Dating's tough. I don't need perfection, but I need introspection (if you're idea of living the good life is King West and an inch of make-up, beat it). Let's play a board game, grab some bbq/Mexican/Infian, mebbe a pint (or three), and let's laugh. I never go to date one expecting a perfect match; I just go to enjoy myself and take it from there.

I'm reasonably healthy, and don't intend to go back. I eat fast food once a month, don't particularly miss it (though I do cast forlorn looks in the direction of Popeyes every once in a while). I'd love to meet someone else who believes moderation is kind of a virtue.

I read, I travel, I watch House of Cards, etc., and explain to people that there's better fantasy novels to read than A Song of Ice and Fire (Game of Thrones to those who only watch TV). I'll hand you a Joe Abercrombie novel and insist until you're annoyed.

I also love puppies and kittens. Petted a German Shepherd puppy today, 'twas great.
What I’m doing with my life
Nothing like a 35th birthday and see this question staring me in the face. Existential crisis anyone?

Umm, apparently applying copy like a boss (I'll explain that some other time). Taking courses on the side to improve myself and help me at work. I forgot how good it feels to have the brain woken up.
I’m really good at
Taxes, inappropriate comments, trimming my own hair (you try shaving your own head evenly, it's awkward). Cooking? I hope so.
The first things people usually notice about me
Evil laugh and no verbal filter (I make for a stunning first date)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Anything by Joe Abercrombie, Anything by Scott Lynch
Anything by Patrick Rothfuss, Kushiel's Legacy Trilogy
Starbuckd by Nick Taylor, Wheel of Time (suck it A Song of Ice & Fire)

Food: Indian, poutine from Quebec (Smoke's is a crime against humanity), German salami sandwiches with mozzarella, cherry cola, ball-park pretzels, smoke meat sandwiches, my homemade arrabiata sauce (which has received nods of approval from Italian girls), American comfort food

Shows: Canadiens games on RDS, House of Cards (netflix version), Premier League on Saturday mornings, Rick and Morty (c'mon season three!), The Venture Brothers, Britcoms (you haven't laughed till you've seen Hyacinthe scale a fence), Workaholics, The Loop (season one), Vikings, Narcos, The Crown....(I think I have a Netflix dependency), Penny Dreadful

Music: The Raveonettes, Chvrches, 2Cellos, Metallica (Black album and everything prior), 90s rock/alternative/ska/punk in general...

Movies: League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Munich, Sex Drive, Eurotrip, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, Waiting, Gladiator, Monty Python, A Knight's Tale (this was pure genius and you know it), Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy , Forgetting Sarah Marshall (all-time fav)
Six things I could never do without
I thought of removing "girls in polka dot dresses"...then remembered how much I still like that. Here's the other five:

Watching soccer on Saturday mornings.
Good craft beers and meat/cheese boards
Ditching this arctic wonderland in the winter
Quiet time to recharge
A new book
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Traveling, retirement (I'm a planner, it's a good thing), how to stay healthy, what I'd like in a lady friend (always flexible, evey woman I've met has something different and great to offer...along with the bad. But it's all about being to accept the faults isn't it?)
On a typical Friday night I am
I make it up as I go along
You should message me if
You're not a princess.

You're quirky, warm and very open minded.

Twisted sense of humour helps (Rick and Morty, anyone?)
The two of us
