Every day when I get home from work, I put the kettle on for some green tea. This is the second whitest thing I do in my life.
The scar on my face is a result of me ruggedly manly-like fighting off a grizzly bear to defend a group of baby geese. (true story)
I work as a Residential Counselor at a child mental health center for children with behavioral difficulties. I am their protector, their guardian, and the guy who folds their clothes.
I can play the electric bass with one hand while I use the other one to drink a damn fine locally brewed pale ale.
My favorite books are anything by Kurt Vonnegut jr, Neil Gaiman, Haruki Murakami, Ernest Hemingway, F. Scotts Fitzgerald, Allen Ginsberg, and so on. I'm very much inlove with classic literature that can be defined by geographical location such as 1800's russian literature (Fyodor Dostoevky anyone?) and French literature during the 1900's.
My dutch oven - I love to cook and you'd be amazed on how many recipes turn out AWESOME-O just because you used a dutch oven over anything else. Gumbo, anyone?
My laptop - I can't get through a work day without one. Too obvious?
My bass - Also has sentimental value. I've been playing bass for 10 + years and I've played a lot of bass guitars but only this one feels like it was meant for me. Plus it was my first, and always my best. Every gig I've ever played has been with this baby.
my iPod - I go through music like I'm getting paid by the album.
My bike - I am so unbelievably happy. I made this 10-speed from scratch and I promise you it's a work of art (even if the paint is choppy)
