Been in the city six years; came up for one of those jobs that takes all of your time but pays you a lot. Well, enough to pay back the loans you had to take out to qualify for the job. After a few years at that job, I got another that was supposed to enable me to get whatever job I wanted at the end of the year term. Well, that didn't happen. At least the loans are almost gone. So now we'll try to get into academia or government... other suggestions and opportunities are welcome. I'd also make a great house husband - I can cook, clean, design, stay really fit so you can show me off, etc.
I don't plan to stay in this city, and tend not to get on with those who say they are enlivened by the "energy" of the city. Did they plug themselves into the one outlet above the hot plate that serves as a kitchen in the closet that is termed an apartment? No, not for me (especially since that energy is derived from a nuclear power plant - there's a genius idea, put a nuclear power plant in a spot where a sizable percent of the population and economy live within the blast radius of a meltdown - why can't we coat the buildings with PV cells?) I want smaller, quieter, more green (forest, not drugs), and where Chinese take-out doesn't cost $20 (yes, those places exist).
I don't swear, use tobacco, or drink, and don't believe that a crowd of a hundred thousand in a small space is a good thing. I cross streets at the cross-walk when the walk signal is in my direction (its only fair - you want cars to stop for red lights, why shouldn't you be expected to stop at a red hand? Bicyclists in this city... ).
Oh, and I do not put pictures of my face online. Even on Facebook. I have several reasons. Yes, it is completely fair for me to not have one up while you do. I WILL SEND ONE TO YOU IF AND WHEN WE SET UP A MEETING. If you ask before then, I will assume you have not read this and will be disappointed.
What do all of those orientation options even mean? I don't know, but I like the option "I don't want to be seen by straight people." If we had such options in real life.... So what am I? If we like each other, who cares what the label is. A rose by any other name... aww, so sweet, he can quote Shakespeare. And is it ironic that there are like 20 different sexual orientations to choose from, but the only pets you can have are dogs and cats.
And hello people from around the world! I'm not sure why you are messaging me, but tell me about life in your country. How do you view the United States?
I'm regularly told that I should do stand-up comedy. Probably would be good at it.
Also, a very dry sense of humor/wit, precise use of language and critical (as in objective analysis) opinions as to everything. I don't really have one of those filters, so if you ask me what I think about something, I'm going to tell you.
I have watched the entire series of the following: The West Wing, MacGyver, The A-Team, Knight Rider, Highlander, Hercules: The Legendary Journeys, Star Trek: The Next Generation, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Star Trek: Voyager, Merlin, Avatar: The Last Airbender, Ultimate Justice League, every Transformers cartoon on Netflix... and others I can't recall right now. But you can probably see the pattern.
Life. Work. What's for dinner. Why there are no flying cars or hoverboards yet. Where are all the famous people. Where are all the people with super powers (including mutants). How much longer until we get warp speed and the Vulcans contact us. Why can't I be a model with an Abercrombie body (still have the teenage longing for physical perfection).
Not sure that list is any less creepy.
I DO NOT DRINK COFFEE so don't suggest that. If you do, I'll assume you haven't read this and will be very disappointed.
Additionally, if you ever use the word "gurl," "boi," or if you have multiple photographs of yourself and alcohol on your Facebook profile (excepting weddings, graduation celebrations, family dinners, religious holiday gatherings, or similar special events), then we likely will not be a match. If getting very drunk is more than a once-a-year occurrence, then no.
I'm going to go watch my cartoons now. I mean real cartoons, not C-Span. Unless it is Wednesday, then I am watching Prime Minister's Questions.
