ABOUT HIM & WHO HE'S LOOKING FOR

"Hello, I am a renowned guy of some sort who this gentleman has paid $20 to write a forward for his profile. I'm not sure who the hell has a forward for his dating profile, but when you're busking for nickels at the bus station, you don't turn down an easy Jackson. In any case, I have been told that I should warn you that this dude is not for the faint of heart. If you eschew the f-word, insanely raunchy jokes, double entendres, nonstop laughter, creative expression, or words like 'eschew,' he's probably not going to be your Cup o' Noodles. And if you take yourself too seriously, have a hankering to pop out kids someday, or already have kids, you might as well keep looking. He also says if you're clever with the "interwebz" and screen names that he isn't hard to track down. So there, I wrote you a forward. Now where's my $20? Hello? Hello? Where did he go? Oh, he did NOT just stiff me!"

Once there was a wee farm boy full of imagination and wonder. He had dreams of living in a house with air conditioning and within the same time zone as the nearest grocery store (his dreams of being a hand model were dashed in a tragic manicuring accident). Soon he had to say so long to the farm, trade his bib overalls and gunny sack for jeans and a backpack, and head off to college in a town with a stoplight. Degree in hand, he found himself drawn to the bright lights of the big city where he made great friends and found many comfy coffee shops, quaint pubs, hip bars, restaurants with every imaginable cuisine, live music , theater, and plenty of serene places to jog and bike. And yes, dear reader, he bought himself a house with air conditioning comfortably close to a grocery store (though he prefers when he is able to turn the AC off and leave the windows open). As I'm sure you've already deduced, I'm talking about me! And in the third person for some reason.

Aside from having imaginative and creative streaks, I'm sarcastic and a bit cynical, but just enough to joke about ridiculous things I see on a daily basis, while still keeping a positive outlook. Left to my own devices, my sense of humor can be more than a little off-color and non sequitur. If you often find yourself clutching your pearls and fainting onto Victorian chaise lounges, I would advise you to click on the next dude's profile to ogle his shirtless bathroom selfies.

Despite my creative nature and geeky career, I enjoy working with my hands. I remodeled my house almost entirely myself. I've knocked out walls, tiled, plumbed, rewired, reframed, and all around revamped every room in the house. One project was even featured on an episode of a TV home improvement show! Currently I'm landscaping and building a pergola and seating area in my back yard. Hiring a patio server and bartender are not in the budget unfortunately.

Also, after running on and off for the last decade, I started doing races a few years ago. I've done numerous 5 to 15k races here and in Chicago, and in August ran my first half marathon.

As for you, you're smart, confident, responsible, honest, and compassionate. If I playfully give you some sarcastic grief, you dish it back with an evil grin. You enjoy meaningful conversation and cracking each other up so much that we spiral into uncontrollable laughter. You love nights out taking advantage of all the cultural and culinary amenities at our disposal but also appreciate our quiet nights at home making dinner together (if you don't cook, I've got you covered). You dig a beer out on the patio with friends as much as camping out on the couch watching movies or a Netflix marathon. You don't have to eat tofu by the fistful, but you should be active, generally eat well, and be supportive of my efforts to do the same. If you're an urban gal, you also need to be cool about the fact that I live in the 'burbs, at least for the time being. If we decide we're in it for the long haul, rest assured that eventually fleeing suburbia is already on my to-do list.

For fun:

I'm almost always up for a random, spur of the moment (or well-planned) adventure in food, music, art, travel, or pointless goofy stupidity. I also enjoy attending Twins and Wild games now and then, but I don't obsess on sports on a day to day basis.

Spicy foods, sushi, chocolate, running, The Walking Dead, Breaking Bad, Top Gear (BBC), MPR, The Current, a cold Surly, my internet connection (especially now that I canceled my cable) and anything random, absurd, patently offensive, or ironic.

Last read:

Recently read The Returned by Jason Mott. Particularly looking forward to Justin Cronin's City of Mirrors later this year. I love biographies and historical nonfiction, too. Otherwise I read up on current events and technology news voraciously.
