ABOUT HIM & WHO HE'S LOOKING FOR

Did I mention that I met my first wife on match.com? . . . true story. . . .oh! you're still reading, thank you.
If you can see the black humor in opening with that, that's a good sign! Admittedly, one person's optimism and perseverance is another's bone-headed foolishness. We'll see.

I have lived in Erie for seven years now years after having spent eight years in Scotland for grad-school. That was a long time to spend abroad but I was in no hurry to leave. I still miss the castle ruins, the publicly subsidized cheap concerts, the Indian restaurants and of course all those trashy tabloids.

While there, I did become nearly "bilingual" but, fear not, I derive less pleasure than Mike Myers does from putting on funny Scottish voices. However, if you play your cards right, I might well divulge the ingredients of the local sheepy delicacy, "haggis." Just as a bait, it contains a generous amount of something called "offal".

In short, while I'm no longer new to Erie, I'm not really of it either.

I have a militant and encyclopedic apathy to professional sports, and am utterly unable to feign interest on that topic. Umberto Ecco once wrote an essay entitled "how to avoid talking about soccer with taxi drivers" that I wish I had read much earlier in life. That apathy reaches a fever pitch on the subject of NASCAR; if I were interested in celebrating the working class turning left I would read up on the history of the British Labour Movement. My exercise routine, such as it is, is entirely the spawn of vanity, envy and hypochondria.

My trump card is that I'm a pretty decent cook, or more to the point that all my favorite power tools are produced by Kitchen-aid and that I'm a despotic tyrant in the kitchen. I would also like to think that I'm a good listener. As the professor who talks all day in often vain hope of teasing out the odd, grudging response, reciprocal conversation is always a welcome and diverting change of pace.

Interests:
Book club, Coffee and conversation, Cooking, Dining out, Movies/Videos, Museums and art, Music and concerts, Exploring new areas, Performing arts, Political interests, Travel/Sightseeing, Wine tasting
Sports & exercise:
Bowling, Running, Swimming, Walking / Hiking
Exercise habits:
I exercise 3-4 times per week
Pets:
Pet Essay:

I've discovered that the near-universal response from well-wishers who've discovered you've recently had bachelorhood thrust back upon you is to say "You know, you should totally get a dog!" I would, but alas my lease doesn't allow for it.

Political views:
Very Liberal
Sign:
I don't believe in astrology
College:
University of Illinois at Urbana–Champaign, Champaign, IL
For fun:

With no financial constraint, I would be sipping a glass of wine on an outdoor terrace in some European capital. At the moment, however, I'm more likely to be having that glass waltzing around the living room listening to Brahms.

Favorite hot spots:

Well, this is Erie and we're grading on a curve, but I like 1201 kitchen, Matthews (RIP) and Mollys, in about that order. The line outside The Olive Garden on Fridays baffles and saddens me.

Favorite things:

coffee. newspapers. red wine. podcasts. Statler and Waldorf

Last read:

The last book I finished was Slavenka Drakulic's "Balkan Express". I'm in the middle of Christopher Hitchens' posthumous collection of essays. He could be - and often was - a total d-bag, but I love him all the same.
