ABOUT HIM & WHO HE'S LOOKING FOR

There once was a lad, sharp of wit,
Red of hair, clean of mind, body fit.
His life, though quite nice,
Was lacking in spice,
"To a woman," he thought, "I'll commit."

A story's best told from the start,
'Cause sometimes, well, that's the best part.
So now we'll digress,
Head for the midwest,
And weave a tale that begins from the heart.

A young couple, try though they might,
Were childless, so to end their plight,
To the home they did ride,
Upon going inside,
Spied the redhead, 'twas love at first sight.

An only child growing was he,
The hugs, love, and snuggles flowed freely.
He was encouraged and prodded,
Motivated and lauded,
"We want you to be all you can be!"

Years later, writing software for cars,
Often eschewing the bars,
He got little rest,
Did his studious best,
'Cause someday he'd send probes to the stars!

Quite well educated was he,
3 B.S., 2 M.S., Ph.D.
You'd think with that much,
Book learning and such,
He'd be a dullard, but he's not, wait and see!

At home he was hardly a slob,
A trait learned from his father, Bob.
Yes he put down the seat,
Though not retentively neat,
Better yet, you'll like this, "I've a job!"

His career seems nearly sci-fi.
Launching probes, off to Saturn they fly.
His research is exciting,
(Except paper writing,)
He’s a real rocket science kinda guy!

Then Hollywood summoned his name,
With the promise of fortune and fame.
His skills put to the test,
With increasing success,
"It's a HOBBY," or that's what he'd claim.

Though exciting and filled with rewards,
Life somehow still left him bored.
"I know! A wife!
Is what's needed this life,
And a family we'll both work towards.

I'm from Mars, and I hear you're from Venus,
Perhaps soon naught will e'er come between us."
And though most of the time,
Humble and sublime,
I'm big on...discretion in rhyme.

I sure hope you like animals too.
Do I live in a house or a zoo?
With a pack and a fluffle,
Feathers to ruffle,
And a mischief of Murinae too.

'Tis a challenging task, to be sure.
Finding a lass who's both sweet and demure.
So he put pen to paper,
And then, hours later,
The tale's end? That he left up to her.

ADDENDA:
SO tired of "How are you still single?" I'm not sure about most of my post-college life, but the last 3 1/2 years have a pretty clear answer why. By the time I left the space program, I'd achieved all my educational and professional goals, but had new goals: a huge stack of writing projects--books, scripts, science journal articles--I wanted to write. So in that time, I wrote every waking moment when I wasn't teaching my classes.

When you do that, you get unfairly labelled a "workaholic" (as opposed to goal-oriented and focused), and although open to a relationship, NOBODY I met here believed that I was willing to scale back writing to allow for "us" time. As of 6/30, all those projects are done (though one book is becoming a trilogy), and I look for new challenges. Although I'm still writing, it's at a less frenetic pace. Perhaps now...

Maybe I'm a loser. I have no pics from Maccu Piccu, or ziplining, or selfies. Over the bar scene? I was never into the bar scene, and have zero drug history. I've also never had a "hookup," and have no desire to start now, so I'm here for the right reasons. I've seen a lot of profiles of women with an aversion to "Hollywood Types." Among the Hollywood crowd, writers are the most down to Earth, and the least into the "Hollywood Lifestyle." I don't deal well with pretense or snobbery. The only games I play involve joysticks, dice, or the occasional aluminum bat. The only drama in my life airs Thursdays at 8/7 Central.

Yes, occasionally I work hard, but this life also comes with awesome perks. Looking to share.

For most people "animal lover" translates to "dog and/or cat lover." While I have 2 dogs, I have birds, 2 different species of rats, turtles, and koi. If you're freaked out by parrots or rodents, I'm probably not the guy. We're a package deal.

For fun:

I'm a gym rat, but returning slowly after a knee injury (and re-injury). I do the annual U.S. Bank Bldg. stair climb in DT LA. I like live music, and see friends perform often. I also enjoy movies, travel, SCUBA (do you brave the cold SoCal waters?).

Favorite hot spots:

I get to Phoenix (Mesa) and San Diego often. I'm a HUGE fan of the SD Zoo, and go a few times a year. I also love La Jolla. I've visited all 50 states and 17 countries. Faves are NYC, DC, SF, London, Venice (Italy not CA), and Vancouver, BC.

Favorite things:

Planting the hedges and installing fixtures.
Pouring the concrete, creating paint mixtures.
Making the home in which I will be king
These are a few of my favorite things.

Fave TV shows/films? The ones I work on.
Also a Fannibal and love TWD.

Astronomy final exams that left me asking "Were you listening in class?" Also "Orbit Determination and Evolution of Comet C/1995 O1 (Hale-Bopp)." You asked. Well, match asked. Also read "Mad, Bad, and Dangerous: A History of Scientists in Cinema."
