Stuff about me: - Born & raised in Detroit, Michigan. - Also born in the Year of the Dragon. - I have one son. - I once worked as a jailguard for the Alaska State Troopers - part-time. - I have a very quirky (a/k/a weird) sense of humor. - I think bats are cute and fascinating. - I'm usually shy at first meeting unless the chemistry is obvious. Then we're usually talking for hours! - My favorite hobby is photography. - My favorite type of music is alternative and some of my favorite artists are BNL, OLP, My Chemical Romance, The Streets, Hawksley Workman, Leonard Cohen, Robbie Williams . . . plus many more. - I love to travel - I play the piano & the clarinet (with a smattering of flute & guitar) - I love cats - I did not have a cell phone until May 2007. - I love all things British! Music, tv, comedy . . .pretty much the whole culture! Who am I looking for? Well, are you.... - Honest? I am. It's the quality which is most important to me. I didn't reach this age without learning (the hard way, sometimes) that honesty is the foundation of any relationship. -Employed? Great! So am I! I find it's very useful for obtaining those pesky things like food, shelter, clothes, etc. - Funny? You don't have to be stand-up quality, but you should be able to see the humor in most situations. Dry and sarcastic humor is a plus!! - Intelligent? I freely admit that I don't know everything but I try!
