My self-summary
I'm a fairly easy-going guy looking for someone to enjoy the rest of life with me. I enjoy a variety of activities, both mental and physical, without being particularly good at any of them.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a retired college professor. When not doing research or professional stuff (which survives retirement), you'll find me at the Y (doing aerobics) or the dojang (Taekwondo) or a coffee shop (pounding on my tablet).
I’m really good at
I'm really good at procrastinating. I'm fairly good at math and I know a bit about computers. Sudoku puzzles tremble at my name.
The first things people usually notice about me
They're too polite to say. Maybe that I have a good sense of humor. Or maybe just that my sense of humor lacks an off switch.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I like good sci-fi (and some fantasy) books. My favorite movie is "The Magnificent Seven", but I enjoyed most of the "Star Trek" movies and the first three "Star Wars" films. I've been known to enjoy an occasional "chick flick" (preferably a comedy), but only on a date. I'm very partial to doo-wop and 50's/60's rock. As far as food goes, I go for pretty much anything that can be construed to qualify as meat (just so long as I didn't see it fetching a stick an hour ago).
Six things I could never do without
... food, exercise, artificial light (hard to read at night without it), indoor plumbing (does Motel 6 count as "camping"?), sleep and some more food.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
... how to answer these questions (although the results may not show it). I'm being nagged to expand my profile to 500 words. (Is that the lower limit for attracting women?) Normally, college professors have no trouble with being verbose (terse is what we really don't get), but I'm generally not good at (nor accustomed to) talking about myself. See the "most private thing" question below.

Hmm, still apparently not up to 500 words. Well, I also spend a lot of time thinking about why space adventures always include "ray" weapons (particularly the lasers in the "Star Wars" movies) that cause noisy explosions in space. Does sound travel in a vacuum? Was my high school physics teacher just blowing smoke?
On a typical Friday night I am
... eating dinner in a restaurant (most likely alone).
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Outward appearances notwithstanding, I'm a significant introvert (according to a test I once took).
You should message me if
... you're intelligent, physically fit (and intent on staying that way), fun to be around, and have a sense of humor (preferably with an appreciation of life's little ironies).
The two of us
