What I am looking for in a potential date is intelligence, wit, and a modicum of sanity - just enough to be interesting, but not so little that I need to keep 911 on speed dial. An artistic flair is also a big plus. If you are curious about the world around you, appreciate sarcasm, know that the expression is "I could NOT care less", and you can carry on a conversation about more topics than the latest celebrity gossip, then we are off to a great start. The rest is negotiable.
Who am I?
I'm always looking to learn new skills - right now I'm learning to play electric guitar. I take requests, provided they are for "Rock You Like a Hurricane" or the first part of "Iron Man". I like to concoct culinary masterpieces (Donair lasagna!), and impersonate Stephen Harper (unflatteringly) on Twitter. One of these days I'd like to learn how to dance. I've also done my share of traveling, having just returned from the Dubai leg of my vacation after failing to get into Yemen, which might have been for the best given the situation on the ground there.
Oh yeah, and I'm almost impossible to offend, so feel free to ask me any question at all.
I collect wine, but I can't stand the taste of alcohol.
I own significantly more extreme-weather gear than I will ever be able to use, yet I keep buying the stuff.
I can insult people in at least six languages (8 if you count fictional ones)
While I'm no expert in computer programming, I can toss out realistic-sounding technobabble with enough speed and confidence to convince anyone that I am.
Halloween is my favorite day of the year.
Pets think I'm cool. Well, maybe not hedgehogs.
PS: I've been trying to upload some better photos, but for some reason the process keeps failing. I promise that I really am capable of smiling.
