That aside, I'm generally happy. A friend once said I'm 'a sensitive badass'. I'm rock and roll and all grown up; Bohemian, yet responsible. Carefree, yet cautious. So: laid back Austin style, cosmopolitan outlook.
I put the punctuation outside the quotes. 'Cause it looks right.
Grew up all over the east coast, literally, Maine to Florida & places in between, with bikers and hippies and pirates and musicians and fisherman and artists and politicians and rich and poor and just plain folks. I'm a techie, traveled around some doing it. Moved to Austin in '99, been here since.
I love my daughter, my family, rock and roll (and lots of it), books, movies and my dog and cat. I like riding my motorcycle, grillin', fishing', philosophy, art(!), nature and loud, melodic rock and roll played on actual instruments by real human beings.
I don't much like many Finns besides Huck.
I enjoy hanging in out of the way bars (Liberty, White Horse, Horseshoe, etc.), poetry, occasionally fishing, BBQ. Not a sports nut, but I like baseball & football during playoffs. Good food, good cheer, lucky toasts, great nights, friendly smiles, a sparkle of the eyes...
I'm pretty damned liberal, but I've had some pretty healthy helpings of common sense. Gun-totin', Wendy-hatin', conspiracy-theorist Tea Party folks, we'll probably not get along. Sorry, gotta draw a line somewhere...
