My profile name is about the dumbest one I could have come up with....and now I'm stuck unless I erase my profile and start all over again....are you nuts?? So there it is.....the name came from HSThompson's Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail '72, which is a actually a really good book, despite it's recycling of the FL thing....
Moi: I was on here a few years ago and it worked out well for me....until living together turned into long distance which eventually turned into no more. So here I am again, with fingers crossed behind my back. I'm not much into working on my pickup lines in church or bars and hell, my dad met my mom on a blind date.
I'm originally from Wisconsin and still have fam back there. I came out to Michigan to get my Masters in music performance and then found a job working in the music biz, got hired by some local orchestras and put together a studio of middle and high school baBists and haven't looked back. My undergrad was mus.ed and the more I teach the more I miss working with larger groups and so I'm one tiny test away from my MI license. Michigan has grown on me...we get snow in the winter, the beer is better than in Wisconsin and most people around here play euchre, cribbage or rummy. About the only thing that still drives me nuts are all of the left turn beatdowns that happen all over the state. I'm working on my patience.
Some random facts about me:
I can do those really loud whistles (one and two-hand variants) and it feels like a superpower.
I'm a huge fan of songbirds My biggest spring 2012 highlight was a tree full of cedar waxwings one morning, my biggest fall 2012 highlight was a carolina wren with some golden pipes in my new backyard.
My musical tastes are all over the map, from Grizzly Bear, to SEEED, to T. Waits, to Stephen Foster tunes, to D'Angelo to Shostakovich to the Fantomas.
I am an opinionated man, but with enough sense to not run off at the mouth when I can't back up my opinion with reasons
I recently upgraded my tie-tying skills to the bow tie level.
I like to read a ton and will gladly go on a road trip to a Historical Site with you
I do occasionally smoke...I thought it wouldn't be accurate to say that I'm a smoker but hoping to quit. However, I frequently don't smoke for days at a time, so I guess that would qualify me for the OS category.
I am a terrible juggler so I won't try to impress you by juggling the contents of the bread basket or sushi plate if we go out for dinner.
I'm addicted to crosswords....addicted. I probably can't emphasize that enough.
I really like chicken wings.
I've seen the northern lights twice and really would like to see them again.
I am balding...it's been a slow moving inevitability for the last 3 years or so and maybe you noticed my dad's nice shiny pate in that one pic above? I'm just putting that out there....
my appendix and I are no longer on speaking terms
Et tu: ohboy, this is a little tougher.
I'm looking for someone who is passionate about whatever it is she does
a woman who will speak her mind
someone who would gladly overlook the improper grammar above because 'more tough' sounds dumb
a lady with, how do they say, chutzpah.
Do you occasionally sing in the car? Sweet! Do you sometimes head bang, even if it's to Brahms? Even better!
I'd like to meet someone with a gleam in their eye and a quick smile at the corners of her mouth.
Are you sarcastic? Fantastic!
I think that intelligence is supersexy and will never complain if your cerebrum pulses when you're thinking hard.....the meek will probably end up with nothing, but the geek shall inherit the Earth
I want to be with a lady who is a-okay getting her hands dirty. I want to do more camping in the next few years and I admit that when a couple I know mentioned they were going to hike the CA coastal trail, I admit that I felt a little envious....i admit...
Pleaseplease don't wink at me.
