My self-summary
I am a massage therapist by trade, and I enjoy cooking, reading, a well made gin and tonic, and the usual cavalcade of standard nerd fare. As we are all bigger on the inside, I shall endeavor to keep this brief, but telling of things not on a well bulleted fetish list.

I enjoy witty banter, double entendre, and consider puns to be art when well placed. Personality counts, and manner matter, cats and kittens. If there is no soul behind those eyes and no fire behind that rib cage, evenings tend to be shorter and less sweet. Punctuation is occasionally perfunctory. Discourse always precedes intercourse, though outercourse can out-course canny colloquy.

I consider myself too outgoing to be an anchorite but not outgoing enough to be considered strictly social. I prefer my parties of the Holly Golightly variety, though one must be sure to leave the cat alone, and I would prefer to know a body before they set foot past the threshold. My Rabbit is Matron of the house, and all should provide proper tribute. Volunteers accepted on a trial basis of course.

Friendships welcome, as all things start there. If there is to be intimacy, let there be first intimacy.

Poly, married and dating.
What I’m doing with my life
Massage therapist by day, mad scientist by night. Attending school to become a nurse. Drinking pumpkin beer and watching Top Chef. Packing bento boxes. Singing kirtan in my car. Snuggling. Late night half asleep rambles. Drinking coffee, quitting coffee. Starting riots.
I’m really good at
Massage (which is good because I need to pay the bills!). Making up songs. Making people laugh. Listening. Making a good bloody mary. Organizing. Dancing like no one's watching.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I'm pretty short for a guy, and then my puckish charm . . .or the sock puppets.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Kali's Odiyya, Initiation into Hermetics, The Anita Blake series, The Merry Gentry series, the Elminster series, the Valdimar series, the Drizzt series, Evolutionary Witchcraft, The Aghora Trillogy, the Dune Saga, American Gods

Music: Most music is good. Favorite band is Pink Floyd. Genre wise: jazz, blues, industrial, metal, goth, new wave, trance, a bit of new age, classical, big band, and even some small bit of country and blue grass.

Food: Sushi, Steak Sashimi, traditional Italian, comfort food
The six things I could never do without
Love. A well stocked kitchen. Books. Comfy pants. Family.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why has smallraven made me care about GossipGirl? What makes a magical system work? Nigela Lawson. What would Noah Bennett do? Alchemy and how to do lab experiments in a condo with no fume hood. Making Hermeticism work. Doing what I love and still somehow turning a profit.
On a typical Friday night I am
Having dinner parties. Inpromptu dance parties. Dinering. Drinking with a bunch of talented brewers at their house/brewery/mancave complex. Getting to stay up late like a grown up. Watching live Burlesque now that there is a local place to do so.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
On occasion I might dance around to Harry Belefonte while I cook, a la Beetlejuice. It happens more often than you think.
You should message me if
You want to geek out about gaming, the occult, tv, books, whatever. If you work retail slave hours while all your friends are 9-5'ers. If you're poly and find me irresistible. ;)
