hi. ok, i looked at pof on my phone and saw how hard it would be to read my "essay." thus the condensed version :
just a semi normal guy looking for a sorta normal gal. i have a goofy schedule. but that can be good. sometimes it takes all day to get the parts for a special dinner. my job is kinda cool. some days it's just put tab a into slot b, but other days it's super creative. almost nothing i do lasts forever.
i have lots of interests. i whittled down the list to just the esoteric to see what the piscene algorithm would do for my matches. (it's a turing test...) otherwise, i like all the normal stuff. i'm a casual baseball fan first and foremost. nothing beats sitting outside watching a game that could actually never end.....
so i guess i'm well read. also inventive. love to stay up all night talking, playing music from my library, reading, listening to the silence of the night. music breathes best in the dark, small hours. love crickets. and fireflies. the only thing i smoke is my meat. and my malt. maybe i'll try veggies.
i'm also modest about myself. it's one of my charms. i hate this writing about myself. but i will say that more than a few people want to hang out with me when the grid totally breaks down.(not that it will) i'm modern and old fashioned. (but i prefer a manhattan, in the cooler months) i like a decent sized screen, unless i'm traveling.
relationships: i want a partnership. i don't want to be "the decider." one was enough. i'm fiercely monogamous, even while playing this dating game. i try hard not to make stuff up. unless it's subterfuge to conceal the suprize. yeah, i know, surprise. but that's not how i say it. i'm not from these parts. go sox.
you? you should like the outside. not afraid to walk a few (dozen, occasionally) blocks. you should also know how to goof off and watch the world spin around us from time to time. i'm most comfortable in comfortable clothes, but dressing up doesn't bother me in the least. i have more than one jacket.
ok, what's left? while i'm fiscally conservative, i'm mostly progressive. if you've never ever voted left, we probably won't get along.
so, if you've read this far, permit me to declare a few addictions. these are things i won't give up as long as i'm able to, as i've come to enjoy them: watching trains, steam engines especially. cats. growing things. making things. fixing things. adult beverages, mostly in moderation. sailing. snow, as in not going to move to arizona or florida, no matter how good the sailing is. desert. and i guess i should include my....
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
a first date. hmmm. a first date is all about figuring out what can't be described in prose, or in this format. someplace to talk, for some reason beverages always seem to figure. someplace with decent lighting, and please someplace where we can talk and not scream or shout at each other over the game or the band or the juke box.
the option to continue our meeting is always nice - either with dinner, or a walk or a gallery.
oh, and we could discuss why we chose what we chose for our "personality." i would have written "really?" or "none of the above" if i had a choice. but i guess there are only 52 personalities. oh well. i guess i'll settle for the "free thinker" box, but it's not really free thinking now, is it? actually i just went back and tried for "inventor." and why cant we pick three or five? free thinking sapiowhatever reader
how about the fourth or fifth date where we just hang out on a pleasant warm evening and enjoy tasty beverages before putting something tastier on the grill? i have awesome fireflies - as well as a toasty fireplace, for when it becomes more about a cozy evening in....
