Baby attorney with a penchant for verbosity chasing the sweet life. Assisted in this pursuit by occasional, intermittent bouts of feckless libertinism. A creative compromise between pragmatism demanding I spend my youth chasing little green pieces of paper and my love of good living as taught by my typically mediterranean family.
A disciple of: Debating in good humor. Asking questions. Killing exactly one hour. Amusing myself and others. I can resist everything except temptation. Still asking myself: What constitutes the good life? How many cups of coffee I can reasonably drink in a day? Whether it would be more fun to play poker with Henry Kissinger or Charles Bukowski? If the Pacific Ocean were filled with gin, what would be, in terms of proportionate volume, the proper lake of vermouth necessary to achieve a perfect dry martini?
Like all Gallic litigators I harbor the dream of someday acquiring rural agricultural land and becoming California's proscuitto baron. Other than that, I don't think my career/life req's are all that unusual. I want to travel, read a lot of books, have semi-meaningful work, good friends/family. Also, eating well, reading, 8 hrs sleep, and exercise every day helps a lot towards stability, getting out of day to day ruts, and helping to think clearly. A few years ago i realized that I'm fairly happy as long as I sleep/exercise/read interesting stuff every day, and if i do that for a week my mood etc is very good.
I'm an incurable romantic, notwithstanding the weight of all evidence/practical experience/mental health advice. I haven't quite got past the inherent strangeness of online dating, but at this point I know too many people who have found new friends here to dismiss it. I even recently presided over the wedding of a childhood friend who met a fantastic partner online. So I guess I just have to repress my inner luddite and accept that people do things on the internet now.
Right now, I'm just giving this site a looksie, but if any of this sounds interesting to you drop me a line and we'll grab a drink.
