i'm a conservative in a landmine of liberals, which i guess needs to be put out there; otherwise, we could come to blows in the parking lot on the first date when i start making fire extinguisher and Tesla jokes. i have a great career and am an intellectual smart-ass, originally from the East Coast and still with that mindset: like Seinfeld but not Jewish. i like watching bad reality TV, writing books (published author...W00t!) and going to all kindsa counter-cultural events which, no doubt, you've never heard of. i'm great with a crockpot, but i'm no neat freak...life's too short.
my current favorite quote is from a kids' show called "Flapjack": "The hardest thing a man must do is be nice to a woman who thinks she knows more than he does." So this means: 1) You need to either be smart or patient with me, and 2) i have a couple of kids whom You may have to be exposed to at some point (i hear there are shots You can take that make them more tolerable). i like industrial techno, dance club music, but i'll put up with Yours. i'm looking for a Man Who has His financial act together, a lot of self-confidence and is at least 5'10". Oh, and if one of Your favorite things to do is go camping, go have fun with that whole "dirty-feet-on-the-way-to-the-outhouse-with-no-Internet-or-TV" thing and click on the next victim/camper. i also don't do "chat" or long-distance commutes: the former method involves no effort at all, and the latter is much too expensive.

The Sebastopol Flea Market. It ROCKS! Or Willi's Wine Bar.
