Okay... this bit.
Well, I am a single dude looking for a single chick, to have "singular" adventures with! I work full-time at a local grocery store in the Sellwood neighborhood, which I've been at for some time now, it's nice work. I live in a cozy one bedroom in the Brooklyn neighborhood, which I'll admit, is nice in the winter as it doesn't take much to heat up the place.
On my spare time, I try to get in a day hike or a decent bike ride in. Sometimes, I'll walk across town, mostly for the exercise... also, it'll get me somewhere. I have been drinking less, so the bar fly aspect of my life as mellowed for now, mostly due to me working on getting back into shape (35 pounds down so far) Still, I'll have a few shots of whiskey on occasion and beer back or two.
Coffee is my main jam, I probably drink four cups a day... down from six, only because I need to get up early on certain days of the week.
Aside from that, I work on comic strips "and a comic zine about a pug, called "Pug"... which has been in creative limbo for awhile... I need to shake out those cobwebs
I was getting around via scooter, but I was hit by a car... I survived, but the scooter didn't. As a result, I am now an "avid cyclist" and not just a fair weather rider... as long as I need to get to work, and there isn't two feet of snow, I'm out there.
My work hours vary, but I'm open for meeting at anytime, and depending on when, anywhere.
I am starting to ramble on here... so let me get to my appearance before I forget. I am 5'8", medium build, I have dark hair, brown eyes. I wear glasses most of the time. I like to think I dress well, but that is all subjective. Oh yeah, I have a few tattoos including a half-sleeve of an octopus on my arm... it's looking pretty rad!
I'd like to meet someone rad, but it's all subjective... really.
What is something that people are surprised to find out about you? That I can't handle terribly spicy foods... I am not such a good Mexican
If you could have a dinner party and invite any 4 people, dead or alive, who'd be coming? Bill Hicks, for being one of the greatest voices to every walk the earth. John Waters, for being one of the most sincere film makers alive. Nathaniel Hawthorne, so I can punch him in the face and Gabriel Garcia Marquez... so he can hold Nathaniel Hawthorne while I punch him in the face.
Where are your local haunts? I live super close to the Brookyln Park Pub, though I personally like the Night Light as a meeting place. I like North too, though I tend to bump into ex-girlfriends more at that place than any other... it's still a nice bar and for the most part, my exs are pretty nice.
What kind of person are you attracted to? Mainly someone who can carry a conversation... it helps if she is pretty too.
How far will you travel to meet the right partner? Shit, I would go all the way to Beaverton! Actually, maybe Sellwood.
What bands do you always find yourself talking shit about? People who say that they are in a "noise" band.
What songs would be on the soundtrack of your life? The soundtrack to the film,"Head"... Thin Lizzy's "Jailbreak", mainly because every bar I've been to in the past few months, that seems to be playing on the background.
What movie does your life resemble most and why? Sexy Beast, 12 Monkeys, Head (Monkees film), Fargo, Pecker, Grey Gardens, Xanudu
What is your idea of a good time? Hanging out, talking for hours on end. Watching a movie, going on trips here and there, that type of thing. Lately I have been into getting out into nature for occasional day hikes.
What is something you're looking forward to? Traveling
I consider myself an open-minded person, but my deal breakers are addicts, liars and guilt trips
Design your ideal mate: the brain of someone who actually thinks and the body of someone who takes care of themselves...
Something I said I'd never do but did anyway was being a social worker, which I am not anymore.
