I am Voluptuous, Independent, and Animé.
Suffice it to say, what I do is not legal in all 50 states. But should be.
I do, for a living, what I used to do as a hobby. In this collapsed economy, & subsequent to the federal crackdowns, my business is doing about as well as can be expected, but I'm still hopeful about the future.
I am recently out of a 7yr primary relationship, and I am not looking for anything resembling that for a good long while.
Now, I'm looking for new friends & new communities and trying to find ways to give back to the world that has given so much to me.
One of the new communities I've been enjoying is the SF karaoke circuit. I'd hated karaoke my whole life, but I got dragged to a night and had one of those burning bush-type revelatory moments. So lately, I karaoke a lot. I am 650% more likely to be willing to meet you at a karaoke venue of my choice, than elsewhere.
I love doing impromptu food, rather than recipe-driven stuff. I can pull a gourmet meal from most randomly supplied kitchens. My former moment of triumph was at Burning Man where I pulled off a gourmet meal for 40 in a tent kitchen with 2 gas grills & a 3 burner campstove. But now I've pulled that off 3 years running...once in a 3 hour whiteout. I loveses challenges and I hateses surprises. Hateses them. Weird, huh?
I'm also really good at Scrabble words with friends and LetterPress& I love new partners.

Mostly I don't go out to eat because I'm a better chef than most you'll find at a restaurant. The one glaring exception is sushi rice. There, I got nothing...
Exploitation for decoration, same issue, right? Animals raised for fur are tormented for a few years, at most. There are records of bonsai being tortured for *centuries!* Free the trees!
And bonsai trees can't even efficiently warm you in subzero temperatures.
And now, for an extended mix rant about Trader joe's "mirepoix". You're only obligated to read it if you claim "cooking"
as something you're good at....
For those of you less culinarily inclined, (but still reading) 'mirepoix' is a technical French culinary term, referring to the preparation of a mixture of carrot, celery, & onions that is the foundation for a wide variety of soups, sauces, stews, stuffings, and so forth.
Like most things traditionally French & culinary, it refers to something very specific: small diced onions, carrots, & celery, in a ratio of 2:1:1. Aka half onions, a quarter celery a quarter carrots.
Frequently, older recipes will call for mirepoix and just expect you to know what they mean.
It is a massive, time-consuming pain to cut by hand, and doing it in a food processor just makes a mess, usually.
Imagine my surprise and delight when I was at Trader Joes one Thanksgiving, and I saw "mirepoix" on the shelves. Oh frabjous day, callooo callay! I get it home, and actually look at it...and it's equal parts onion, carrots & celery. Not mirepoix at all.
If at this point you're like, "whatever, bitch, it's precut, it's the right three veggies, where's the problem?" you can just keep on clicking through to the next prospect, kthxbai.
So, I grab an onion and dice it, to bring the proportions, and hence, the flavor balance, into proper alignment. I'm still pretty pleased with not having to deal with dicing nearly as much veg, and I proceed to my next turkey day task.
However, the next time I was at TJ's I went and talked to the manager to explain my concern about their (so easily correctable, damnit!) error. Eventually he understood that there was a problem and even what it was, and he agreed to pass it up the line.
The problem is this: if you call it mirepoix, it should *be* mirepoix and 2:1:1. If you pack it 1:1:1 don't call it mirepoix. Easy! Apparently not.
It's been *years* now that this has bugged me. I've sent several emails. I've dug up postage and a stamp and physically sent a letter to corporate explaining the problem, pointing out the potential economic benefit that correcting it would be for them.
You see, onions are both cheaper than carrots or celery and can be stored outside of refrigeration. They could save tens of thousands of dollars on the cost of production of this one item during the holiday season alone! By *improving* its quality and reliability, without changing packaging or procedure in any way. Or at least they could change the freaking name, so it's not misleading...
Nothing. No response. No change. For *years.* Every time I see (and use, because it's still easier than doing it all manually) it, it's like fingernails across the blackboard of my soul.
Hey, they asked what you spend a lot of time thinking about, ok? Obviously this is such a thing.
Now that I've totally quelled your ardor, might I mention that I've been a porn star. And it was released on VHS & DVD, nationwide Everybody and their cousin has been an Internet pr0n star, but how many of you are available on magnetic or optical media?

You've sent Trader Joe's a message complaining about the "mirepoix" travesty as a result of reading the rant on my profile.
You are comfortably nonmonogamous. and I don't mean because you don't tell your partner. Really extremely serious about that.
You are queer, kink, and sex-positive , but you aren't sleazy about it.
You have an iPhone. Over 80% of my successful OKc interactions turn out to be people with iPhones. No idea why.
You live in San Francisco
You're allergic to lies
You're fun & friendly & respectful.
You play a mean game of Scrabble, or Words with Friends, or Letterpress.
You'll karaoke at the drop of a hat.
You like giving massages.
You've wiki'd Aspergers Syndrome
You are a swing or lindy hop lead. I'm a damn good follow, who happens to be 6' tall. It's kind of a drag. Looking for a dance date.
Burning Man veterans are welcome. Drive by Shooting Range? The year Xara blew away? If these things ring any bells...drop me a line. And if you've been going for more than 10years, I might even already know you.
You've carefully read my profile, and think you're someone I want to know.
You think I'm awesome. Life is too short for lukewarm dating. I don't date people who aren't really into me, please, don't think you need to do me any favors. On the other hand, enthusiasm is very attractive. Almost as hot as confidence.
Pick 3 or more & drop me a line.
