I try to keep my side of the street clean... and take things one day at a time. I know where I'm going and I definitely know where I've been. I have giant goals but try to keep myself free from giant expectations. I believe in progress... not perfection.
And I believe time wounds all heels.
Stuff I dig? Football and "Top Chef". Coq Au Vin and New Mexican green chili cheeseburgers. Taylor's and Tommy's. I've stayed at Blake's in London and the Motel 6 in St. George, Utah. (Hey, they always take dogs.) I love Blue Note jazz and the Ramones. Motown and Bowie. Oldies and Queen. Flew to Albuquerque a few weeks ago just to see Iron Maiden... and am so not afraid of the 5th Dimension. Totally down with New Order and the Cocteau Twins.
Food field-trips and the Rose Bowl Flea Market? Huge.
Not a mama's boy... but I do take the old lady to a Steelers game every year. (Steelers/Skins 10-28-12.)
You will not come home to find me buried beneath a pile of empty Bud cans. I do not play video games. I do not have a tattoo. (Would that "Van Halen" look good now... on my shoulder? Exactly.) I do not wear body spray. I do not spray tan. I have a ton of t-shirts, but none that say "Affliction". Or "Mayhem". Or "Christian Audigier.
You will never receive an email or a text or an old Polaroid of my... you know. Not sure when this became a thing, but... we're not all douchebags.
Not a fan of corporate pizza. I do not understand Applebee's, Chili's or the Olive Garden. (I do, but I don't.) And I do not believe in "Men's Health," "Details," or "Esquire."
I'm the train they call the "City of New Orleans".
Trust me, I'm listening. Always.
You. Independent. Responsible. Confident... yet humble. Thoughtful. (That's a big one.) And someone who's not afraid to say, "F#*% it," every now and then.
In short... a work in progress. Like me.
THE KEY: A sense of humor. God, if you can make me laugh... that would rock. Massive points for that.
At the end of the day, I'd love to hang with someone who vibrates at a similar frequency. And is willing to fight for it.
