I am... complex... intellectually. I appreciate—and this is putting it simply—the pervasive and brilliantly perfect web of metaphor that is foundation to everything. Related to this is a marrow-deep impulse towards the humorous (comedéphilia?) and a tendency for magniloquent and verbose... uh... words.
I make excellent coffee for a living; I read voraciously; I can walk like some kind of crazy walking machine, never stopping, never slowing down, over hill and dale; sometimes when I'm thinking I grip my forearm in my jaws by the wrist; I wear black often; I don't dye my hair; I do wear eyeliner on occasion as well as paint my nails; I learned how to read pretty young by reading D&D rulebooks cover to cover, over and over'; I think THX-1138 is the greatest movie ever, but George Lucas is a fat, opulent hack; My Grandfather was O. J. Simpson's track coach at City College and my Great-Grandfather was one of the world-famous Andrini Brothers; I can fit the better part of my fist in my mouth.
I am serious, absurd, and always laughing
