I'm a bearded and bespectacled man who, among other things, enjoys staying up late, sleeping in, good food (eating and cooking), reading a book, thinking, weather changes, music (making and listening), tea, coffee, beer, snuff (tobacco, not movies) and interacting with thinking people. Spring is my favourite season. After that it's a tie between fall and winter. Winter wins if it's a proper winter, with snow that doesn't melt after one day or ice that's thick and black.
I have a daughter (primary school age) living with me 50%. Don't tell me I didn't warn you...
I can be quite shy, so if I looked at your profile but didn't send you a message, chances are you're so awe-inspiring I lost my nerve. Give me a few days to regain my composure or send me a message yourself.
Making up passable food from what I (or someone else) happen to have at home.
When I have a hangover I can usually sing a Gb in the contra octave.
Making apple pie.
Faking actual skill on a number of musical instruments.
I can sleep through almost any disturbance and almost anywhere. I'm like Sleeping Beauty (only not as beautiful).
Also, I sometimes sing a bit more prominently than socially accepted while walking down the street.

–Last time I cooked something and was really pleased with the result i made:
I improvised some kind of veggie lasagna tonight, where every other layer was pre-grilled zucchini instead of pasta. It turned out really well.
No, friends and family aren't things.
If the subdominant and its parallel really exists.
Why Achilles will overtake the tortoise.
If you can think the same thoughts as someone else without having access to the same words and/or concepts.
How people eating in public (e.g. on the tram) vividly illustrates our ape ancestry.
How to get that annoying tune out of my head.
Is there a common denominator between all things we call "music"?
How to get into a PhD-program without selling my soul to the postmodernists, and how to finance it.
If I should work as a mailman instead.
What the relationship between intuition and reasoning is.
What time it is (and what time is).
What causes that sense of having forgotten something really important.
