iGuy #11 – Jeff

sfgirl, sfgirl.com, san francisco girl

Found him at: Drink Exchange @Club NV
Date: Friday June 30, 2000
Name: Jeff Slye
Height: 6’1″ (6’1″ AND A 1/2, with bed head)
Weight: 192 lbs, fairly athletic build
Race: White, but who cares?
Born: Marin
Position: Sr. Manager, Business Development 
Company: LogicTier – Note: My company will certainly appreciate the following disclaimer: The statements by Jeff Slye are in no way representative or endorsed by LogicTier. 
Email: iguyslye@yahoo.com
Siblings: One older sis.

Life goals:
Since I was a child, my greatest life ambition was to be an iGuy. Assuming that this aspiration was unattainable, I have been focusing my efforts on being financially successful to obtain the means to help eradicate violence, promote goodness to others, and support international humanitarian efforts. I wouldn’t mind spending all my money to take a trip to the moon either.

Favorite food:
It’d have to be a great Thai curry…maybe Chicken Tikka Masala. However, if it is after 2 a.m. and several cocktails, there is no better delicacy than a real sloppy piece of combination pizza. 
 
Favorite Drink:
Water, without it I’d die…well, I guess I could say the same thing about good red wine.

Restaurant:
Don Jonson’s new place…Ana Mandara. It must be those years in cheesy Miami!

Favorite Indoor activity:
If I have an ‘activity’ indoors, I’ll assume the weather is bad or I’m having company. In this case, I am in the kitchen barefoot and in boxers standing over a skillet trying to cook a nice entrée or dessert, but never letting the yellow pages of delivery restaurants too far out of sight(Actually it is under my arm the whole time). With plate in hand (usually delivery prevails), I’ll grab a nice seat on the floor, lean back against the couch, and put in a movie, probably a unique non-fiction or foreign film.

Favorite Outdoor activity:
Rolling in the hay…well, for some reason this doesn’t happen too often. Maybe I should stop looking for hay in the city. Seriously, I enjoy virtually anything outdoors or athletic including hiking (there is nothing like beautiful scenery), tennis, volleyball, climbing, going anywhere in Lake Tahoe, and snow skiing (my personal favorite).

Favorite practical joke:
In the dorms at UCLA unsuspecting bathers would leave their towels and post-shower clothing in plain view of nasty mischievous freshman. Being such an angel, I never participated, but there were rumors of clothes, towel, and all being removed from these stalls and put in clear view about 50 yards down the hall in the common foyer. Since our dorms were co-ed, we quickly had some of the fastest freshmen at UCLA. Oh yeah, some women became pretty fast as well.

Boxers/Briefs:
Is there a choice? Boxers, of course.

Favorite Sign:
‘Proceed with Caution’…and I’m a Libra.

Age:
28

How would you rate yourself:
Similar to a good young fine wine. It wasn’t great early, but now it has a nice drinkability with complex flavors that will hopefully continue to develop into a savory vintage.

Best asset:
Being 28, but being able to not take myself too seriously.

Weakness:
Being 28 and occasionally acting 38.

Sexiest part of a woman:
Legs.

Younger or older?:
Age is never a factor.

Favorite Movie:
Shawshank Redemption, but any Bond or Jim Carrey film will do.

Favorite Book:
Zorba the Greek (live life to the fullest) and any of Tom Robbin’s books (Jitterbug Perfume is hilarious).

Favorite Holiday:
Thanksgiving

Where were you born:
Born and raised right here in the Bay, Marin

School:
UCLA

Degree: 
Political Science/International Relations

Where were you raised:
I lived in the Bay most of my life, but have spent time living in Miami, Florida (Bienvenido a Miami) and London, England.

San Francisco

Company’s offering: 
Logictier specializes in internet operations outsourcing – Essentially we operate all the hardware and software components for Fortune 500 companies to ensure 100% availability of their web sites. The Olympics are one of our customers.

Hobbies:
Guitar…I try and quit often. Spanish…I practice. Meringue/Dancing…I try and practice, but still haven’t turned the corner. International travel. Sports…I love playing them, watching them live can be a fun event, but on TV it’s a waste of time.

Favorite pick up line:
‘Hi.’ I guess I’m not big on these…however, one I recently heard that blew me away was…’Do you want to have sex or should I apologize?’ He apologized.

Best hangover breakfast:
Grande Orange Mocha Chip Frappachino and Raisin bagel with Date and Walnut spread. Instant cure!

Turn ons: 
Surprises. An independent woman that has her own life and friends. Skirts, especially on tennis players. Belly button piercings. Occasional foul language from an otherwise sophisticated well-spoken woman. Good dancing. A kiss on my neck.

Turn offs:
Lies. A vegetarian that wears a fur coat. Women that look like pirates or NFL linemen. Unprotected sex with an unknown partner. The 30 somethings that think they are still in their frat/sorority and get belligerently drunk in the Marina. Sand in hard to reach places. High maintenance/materialistic personalities.

Scariest experience: 
Having my picture and bio put on some random SF web site…Second, a 6 hour jet boat ride I took on the Mekong river amongst whirlpools and upwellings going from Luang Probang, Laos to the Thai border.

Most free food. Except anything that can be described with the word “tandoori”.

Does my mom’s kitchen count? She makes me pay for the food.

Anything with alcohol. (That’s actually not true. Have you ever tried mescal? Don’t. I’m serious. The only time I drank it, I woke up three days later married to a fat Puerto Rican stripper.)*

Favorite Indoor Activity:
Probably drinking. I find that when I’ve had a lot to drink I become incredibly charming. I do all sorts of clever things, like yell obscenities at random people, and throw up everywhere.*

Favorite Practical Joke:
I like to go down to the dog pound and pretend that I’ve found my dog. Then I tell them to kill him anyway because I already gave away all his stuff. Dog people sure don’t have a very good sense of humor.

Honestly, intelligence and personality are the keys to a great woman. Surgery can improve everything else.

Hobbies:
Going to parties with the SFGirls, listening to people tell me stories about the ridiculous things I do at those and other parties*, and trying to avoid work as much as possible. And I like to cuddle. A lot.

Favorite pick up line?:
I actually wrote a book about pickup lines, I swear. My default line is “Do you mind if I flirt with you?”

Best hangover breakfast: I don’t drink.

Turn-ons:
Hot women, cute women, attractive women, intelligent women, aggressive women, funny women, women with great hair, and Chick-Fil-A (That’s a southern fast food chain, not some derogatory term for a woman).

Turn-offs:
Ugly women, excessively fat women, women who snort when eating, anything Marxist, and Duke Basketball fans.

Scariest Experience:
In South Beach, I once saw RuPaul out of drag. It blew my fucking mind. Or the time I was arrested in O’Hare airport on charges of terroism and carrying a concealed weapon. What was the weapon? I forgot I had a starter pistol in my backpack, and it went through security. Needless to say, the shit completely hit the fan. That was fun.
