So I’ve had a profile on here off and on for… longer than I’d have
wished. My last summary was very sarcastic and I had one person
tell me, “It doesn’t seem like you really wanted to be on there”.
Well, yes and no. Yes, I want to meet you, and travel and have
adventures, abroad and in our minds, and laugh and cook and kiss
and cry and etc. and so forth. This online selection process is
fraught with ridiculousness, but then again so am I, and so are
I am city-born, red-neck raised (location, not mentality), and am
both a country boy (let's go for a hike) and a city boy (let's walk
and bike around from potluck to dive bar) but try to dodge the
suburbs. I'm a lot of fun, but also need to calm the hell down at
times. Actually, this seems like a good spot to invoke Kurt
Vonnegut- "There's only one rule that I know of, babies- God damn
it you've got to be kind"…
What I’m doing with my life
Walking through the woods and swamps seeking hidden treasures.
Fighting the powers that be. Learning how to be a good and present
human being to myself and others. Staring at a glowing screen
entirely too damn much, staring at moving rivers and fires when I'm
I’m really good at
reading maps, whiskey-fueled illicit skinny-dipping expeditions by
night, identifying what we see or hear in the woods, creating a
(mild, amusing) scene by taking up too much of the dance floor with
you at yer cousin's wedding, procrastination (when I have the
time), dreamin' big, righteous indignation, subverting such by
surreal humor, copy-editing, scrabble, dreaming big.
The first things people usually notice about me
is that I'm standing on their foot.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Haruki Marukami, Mose Allison, Monty Python, J. Mascis, Grizzly
Bear, Zydeco, Gumbo, good red wine, Son Volt, James Baldwin, Kurt
Vonnegut, single malt, bad red wine, Colbert Report, Mark Twain,
Kojak, Rockford Files, Greg Brown, Nellie McKay, the Beatles, good
coffee and bad glazed donuts. The list goes on, but -- your turn.
The six things I could never do without
passion, music, mountains, humor, rivers, hope
I spend a lot of time thinking about
It. Is that normal? I shouldn't should I?
On a typical Friday night I am
Last Friday, I went to see our local queer DIY Ghostbusters-themed
burlesque show, which featured a dramatic appearance by a gyrating
Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man. I ain't gonna say that's typical, but
its something to aspire to...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm going to wait until I can whisper it to you.
You should message me if
you're a hot, humble, self-aware, self-effacing, nature-loving,
city-loving, blues-loving, blues-having, dancin',
cookin',day-seizing, sleepin-in, naughty, nice girl.
Or something like that.
