I typically spend my leisure time
Going fishing and canoing is a lot of fun. It is relaxing to get away from home and the routine of daily life. I also like to go out to eat and try different kinds of food, or go to an oriental grocery store. Finding new music, books, and movies that are creative and unique is also something that I really enjoy.
The most influential person in my life has been
I thrive on discovering new things, like different writers and musicians. I tend to want to grow, learn and have new experiences. I would like to meet a person who is interested in the world and likes to grow.
The first thing people notice about me
Most people think I am smart, but I am mostly quiet and do not talk unless I feel I have something relevant to say.
The last book I read and enjoyed
It was a Jack Vance book. He is a sci-fi writer, but in the vein of Jonathon Swift. His writing has a sense of the absurd and very funny dialogs. The characters often fail in trying to seek advantage over others, and the ways they cope with failure are deluded but humorously inspiring.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- my daughter
- my job
- my parents
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
That I like to make people laugh and do not take most things very seriously. It takes awhile for some people to realize that I have a dry, absurd sense of humor.

A little more about me
For right now, I am just a trial member - so if I don't get back to you it is because I am hanging on the fence about paying the fees. They will not let me respond until I fork over. Sorry if that makes me seem cheap, but you have to admit - the pricing structure is a gouge.
