My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Way out east there was this fella... fella I wanna tell ya about. Fella by the name of Colby. At least that was the handle his loving parents gave him, but he never had much use for it himself. He called himself "The Dude". Now, "Dude" - that's a name no one would self-apply where I come from. But then there was a lot about the Dude that didn't make a whole lot of sense. And a lot about where he lived, likewise. But then again, maybe that's why I found the place so darned interestin'. They call Washington DC the "City Of Yuppies." I didn't find it to be that, exactly. But I'll allow there are some nice folks there. 'Course I can't say I've seen London, and I ain't never been to France. And I ain't never seen no queen in her damned undies, so the feller says. But I'll tell you what - after seeing DC, and this here story I'm about to unfold, well, I guess I seen somethin' every bit as stupefyin' as you'd see in any of them other places. And in English, too. So I can die with a smile on my face, without feelin' like the good Lord gypped me. Now this here story I'm about to unfold took place back in the early '90s - just about the time of our conflict with Sad'm and the I-raqis. I only mention it because sometimes there's a man... I won't say a hero, 'cause, what's a hero? But sometimes, there's a man. And I'm talkin' about the Dude here. Sometimes, there's a man, well, he's the man for his time and place. He fits right in there. And that's the Dude, in DC. And even if he's a lazy man - and the Dude was most certainly that. Quite possibly the laziest in Arlington County, which would place him high in the runnin' for laziest worldwide. But sometimes there's a man, sometimes, there's a man. Aw. I lost my train of thought here. But... aw, hell. I've done introduced him enough.

.....totally shocked you're still reading.

OK, really...I guess you could say I put the "wandering" in wandering twenties, however overused that platitude is. I am a person of many interests, but a buff on none (really fighting to insert a Seinfeld comment there). I volunteer, scribble down my thoughts every once in awhile, and look for advice when I can get it. I take leisure very seriously and you can usually find me on a mountain, asking a bartender what they recommend, or planning a trip. I'm originally from West Virginia. I get a kick out of the worldwide recognition "Country Roads" and take redneck jokes in stride. I usually skip the small talk.
