I need a smart man. I know a little bit about a lot of things but am expert on few. Yes, I know educated doesn't necessarily mean smart, and vice-versa. I don't play chess but I do crossword puzzles. In ink. At the beginning of the week, anyway.
I'm kind, thoughtful, intuitive, compassionate, responsible, curious, open-minded, affectionate and sensuous.
Love travel. Four continents down, three to go. Got very close to Antarctica and have crossed the Arctic circle too. Prefer to get there first class or business (or cruise ship). But then I want to see how people live. I get a big kick out of visiting foreign grocery stores and such.
I live with cat and gadgets. I enjoy cooking and am pretty good at it, but don't do it often. I hate leftovers. Love entertaining though. Oh, and I'm a night owl.
I'm in the news biz. Outside of work I'm busy with the union. Time requirements are cyclical. Keeps things interesting, for sure. And busy. I usually spend at least some of my vacation time visiting family. I have a small circle of good friends and a bigger circle of good acquaintances.
I like the Arclight, the Grove and the Bridge best, for movies. With popcorn. Butter negotiable.
I like live music and gravitate toward the blues. Recently enjoyed acts at Molly Malone's, the Mint, Room 5, Farmer's Market (EB's), Ireland's 32.
Love love love to laugh. Dig Eddie Izzard and Kathleen Madigan and the late Richard Jeni. On my Tivo right now: Modern Family, Sons of Anarchy, Downton Abbey, Mom, Mad Men, Etc. Well written stuff.
I like plays and festivals and whalewatching and all kinds of stuff.
I like exploring whether it's a new city or part of L-A I didn't know, or Lowe's or Costco or a museum or the menu. I'm always reading something but usually not books. Mostly that's because when I start one I want to read all the way through, now!, and that's often not convenient.
I'm hoping to meet a man at least as tall as me and around my age.
I'm looking for local men ONLY. If you live more than about 20 miles of Hollywood we'd probably be wasting our time.
