Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi. My name is Chris. Thanks for taking this time to look at my
Living back in Southern California is proving to be a very
interesting experience. I'm finding that I'm certainly not your
typical Southern California resident. I don't share the same
passion for materialism and status that seems to predominate much
of the culture of the region. I'm very happy living in simplicity
and enjoying the little things in life like watching plants grow
and listening to the birds sing. That said, I do have a strong work
ethic and enjoy nice things.
I try my best to live a healthy and happy life. I try to eat
healthy. For this reason I rarely eat typical "American" food. I
mostly eat Asian food as I find it to be better for me. I also eat

I like books. LOTR is an all time favorite epic. Dune, 1984, Be
Here Now, Power Of Now, Siddhartha, all kinds of other stuff. Just
I like movies. The Big Lebowski is a favorite. I like lots of other
ones too though. I don't spend very much time watching movies. It's
OK if you do- I'll probably watch them with you.
I don't watch much TV. Been watching Battlestar Galactica series
lately. Also Louie.
I LOVE me some music. I listen to lots of different kinds. Not real
big on "pop music" in general. I listen to Reggae, Ragas,
Rock-N-Roll, Bluegrass, Hip hop, Grateful Dead etc.
LOVE me some food. I like exotic and foreign foods. Thai ,Mexican
and sushi are favorites. I would consider myself a "foodie". I get
immense joy from trying new unusual foods.
