My family and friends are very important to me. As is Morgan, the muppet-like dog you see in the pictures.
I am a bit of a cycling fanatic. I got on the bike a few years ago, and now I can't seem to get enough of being outside, climbing hills, and challenging myself. I belong to a bike club on the Peninsula, but the biking I love often has me alone climbing the hills.
And my job has me staring at a computer screen for too long each day.
I am looking for someone generous and kind, who, like me, puts family and friends first. She doesn't need to be a cyclist, but I'd like to find someone with a sense of adventure, who could travel with me, seek out better wine, and enjoy cooking and eating great food.
Honestly, work pays the bills. It is sometimes interesting, often frustrating. It isn't going to make me filthy rich, but it keeps me and the dog fed, and me on the bike, and lets me add stamps to my passport.
working the grill.
joining the fun.
(Sometimes the women I hear from want to meet my awesome dog as much as they do me. I can't say I blame them, though. He is awesome.)
I want to spend more time reading books. Latest reads include Breaking the News, For the Relief of Unbearable Urges. I regularly read The Economist, The Atlantic, New Yorker. A lot of my news gets filtered through the blog world. Andrew Sullivan is a daily read. (Yes, he is earnest and preachy and catholic, but his blog is rarely dull.)
Really good coffee
My iPhone (that's semi-serious)
The interwebs, generally
Good music, especially jazz
Family and friends
My dog, Morgan
extra things, evidently
Politics. Foreign and environmental policy. What's next.
It's not 'Kings Speech' bad, but it's there. Sometimes it is better, sometimes it is worse. Sometimes I work at it, sometimes I don't. I always have things to say, I just can't always get it out as quickly as I'd like.
You love dogs. (I don't hate cats, I am just really allergic.)
You have courage. My ideal woman is probably someone willing to meet me half way. OkCupid dates can be so lame, and while I am really good at knowing people, getting to know people and build that rapport is tough. So... let's get to know each other? Preferably in person?
