My self-summary
I feel about adulthood the way a dog feels when he's getting to ride in the car, but then he finds out that he's going to the vet.

I'm in a relationship, and as long as that's true, I won't be on this site. Hopefully, I'll never be back.

Short-term I'm looking for someone to have fun with. It seems like whatever you do is more fun if you have someone to do it with, and there's a lot going on in this town. Long-term, I want to start a family. I completely understand people who don't want kids, but I'm afraid that's a bit of a deal breaker for me.

I'm really interested if you have a unique skill or hobby or subject that you can teach me about. And if you're into fitness at all, that's great. I've let my fitness slip since I got out of the Navy and started grad school and it would be awesome to have someone to run or cycle or do yoga or other sporty stuff with and get back in shape. (A few years ago I spent quite a bit on a commuter bicycle that now functions as a fairly serviceable coat rack. I'd love to dust it off again!) I'm currently working on losing weight, and I'm averaging a pound or two a week.

I can solve a Rubik's Cube in under three minutes. I'm not sure if that's impressive or not.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a business analyst for a for-profit university corporation, wrapping up my MBA, and planning to take over the world. I'd like to run for office in the near future.
I’m really good at
I'm really good at public speaking. I know that a lot of people have a huge fear of public speaking, but I either never did or I've gotten over it.

I also really like to cook, and try new things in the kitchen. I find that cooking is even more fun when you have someone to share it with.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm told that I have a very loud voice, and a very outgoing manner. Apparently I sometimes give off a hostile attitude, and that I can have a "scowly" face. I get it from my dad. I'm usually just lost in my head.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My favorite novel is "The Great Gatsby." I'm a big fan of Mark Twain, Kurt Vonnegut, Hunter S. Thompson, "Starship Troopers," "Dune," and "Catch-22," and "The Richest Man in Babylon." I'm also a huge fan of the Sherlock Holmes novels. I've read them all a few times. Honestly, I've got a stack of books that's been growing since I started grad school that I want to read and haven't. You should see my Amazon Wish List.

My favorite movie is probably "Mr. Smith Goes to Washington." But I also love "The Last of the Mohicans," "The Thing," "The Great Dictator," the Marx Brothers films, and "Thank You For Smoking," to name a few.

As for television, I like a number of sitcoms, but I usually prefer to watch them several episodes at a time on a slow weekend. I also enjoy a lot of UK shows like "Sherlock," "QI," and "8 Out of 10 Cats;" Also, I've really gotten into "Breaking Bad," "Trailer Park Boys," "The League," and "Conan."
The six things I could never do without
1. My friends and family, of course.
2. My iPhone. I've become an addict!
3. Rum. Just, rum.
4. Coffee.
5. Warm socks out of the dryer.
6. Internet access. I know this one sounds dumb, but I always forget just how much I do online until the service is out.

I start running out of ideas then. I guess I could do without a lot of things.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How I want to start a television show about a Home Economics teacher who discovers she has cancer, and holds a bake sale to raise the money for her treatment. I'll call it, "Baking Bad."

I'm so, so, sorry for that joke.

I like the idea of lots of things that I'm sure would be less fun in real life than they are in my imagination. I like to think about becoming a college instructor, or opening a bar, or just traveling the world like a bum. Things like that.
On a typical Friday night I am
Either going home exhausted or going out with co-workers or friends downtown. Although I went out with coworkers a couple weeks ago and we all got way too drunk, and things got way too real. The next Monday at the office everything was awkward, like we had accidentally killed a guy and made a secret pact to never talk about it.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
One time, in college, I got super high before a theatre class and gave a presentation in which I repeatedly referred to "Hamlet" as the "Fresh Prince of Denmark."

I own a onesie. It's super warm and comfortable, like sweatpants for your whole body.
You should message me if
If you haven't already been repelled by my incredibly dry sense of humor.

If you agree that the best Doctors were the first, third, fourth, fifth, tenth, and eleventh. I also liked the sort of dark brooding tone of the ninth doctor, but thought it could have been handled better. And while I'm at it, fuck the sixth doctor. That guy was a dick.
