My self-summary
Primarily, I'm not as perfect as you'd like me to be, but I give it my best try. And when I fail, I always say I'm sorry and bring flowers to make up for it.

My favorite activities are eating too much and drinking too much and then getting up too early to go to the gym to make up for it. Or maybe for a run to the beach. I'd really like to take up biking, but I have to acquire one first. Also, I'd rather have a tooth filled than rollerblade. I have a high center of gravity and the first time I tried it I almost lost an arm. I also love movies and live music and just about any athletic activity. Oh yes, and any form of lounging is good.

I'm also a mostly harmless nerd who is relatively well read and can have highly intellectual conversations when required, though I generally don't prefer to. I love people, but I'm not particularly outgoing, and even sometimes a little shy.

Basically, I'd like to meet someone who can make me laugh or at least laugh at me and is as curious as I am to explore the world with. Maybe that person is you, and maybe not, but either way it never hurts to meet someone new. Well, hardly ever.

I am hungry, scandalous, and thesaurusy
What I’m doing with my life
IT Director for a non-profit hospice. No, it isn't even a little bit depressing, though we do cry often. For some reason this is what I'm good at, so I'm trying to do as much good with it as I can.
I’m really good at
Being the strangest guy in the room. Telling jokes that aren't funny until five minutes later. Making references to literary works that I have probably never read.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I'm taller than them. That my head is sometimes so shiny that I should be positioned near the coast to warn ships of dangerous rocks? And when they get closer, that I have unnaturally long eyelashes (so much so that it is uncomfortable for me to wear sunglasses).
Six things I could never do without
1. Coffee
2. Pork Products
3. Octopus
4. I'll get back to you on the rest - too busy eating.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I assume this means embarassing things? How much time do you have? I'm not a private person, and do lots of embarassing things. Let's start with this - I still cover my eyes during the scary parts of movies. And while we're on the subject of movies, I've never learned how to eat popcorn. It goes everywhere and I find it for days. If you find yourself at a movie with me, you'd be well advised to zip shut your purse. Earplugs may not be a bad idea either. (For the popcorn - I don't talk during movies).
You should message me if
Your messages are delicious.

You are (going) to be a doctor of something other than medicine. Makes me melt. All other education levels welcome too, of course (and medical folks). Some of the smarter people I've ever known never graduated HS.

You just want to have a beer or something. Very interested in meeting someone, but not so much in this venue.
