Anyhow, generally speaking, I enjoy kicking ass, taking names, and doodling on paper plates with pizza grease, much to the disgust of my fellow diners. I often tell stories as icebreakers, usually highlighting the foibles of my existence- I can't wrap a burrito to save my life, lived in an attic nicknamed The Widowmaker by friends, and once shimmied up what might have been the only tree in Reykjavik to get a good view of a Tom Selleck impersonation competition going on over the fence. And yes, if you've looked at my pictures (let's be honest, who doesn't go to pictures first?), I do often get dressed with the lights off. It makes for some interesting color combinations.
I'm trying to get better about biking in the city (still not great with directions if I'm off the grid), I enjoy weight lifting when I have enough free time for it, and I like swearing with aplomb. I also enjoy working words like aplomb into sentences, because I get to use such words so rarely in day to day speech.
I intensely care about a lot of things (see below), but when the topic turns to politics I'm mentally shredding a tidal wave of rum on a surfboard made of I don't care. And yes, I know I'm in the wrong city for that, but seriously- nobody's even been caned in the Senate since the 1850s, a little more shenanigans on the floor would be greatly appreciated.
