That being said, it behooves me to curb my normal meticulous and expository nature and try for brevity.
I'm rather unusual. I'm not the non-conformist with the non-conformist badge. I'm the non-conformist who tends to be rather quiet and unassuming about my non-conformity until it slowly dawns on you that somehow this person defies all of your expectations.
Quiet, intelligent, extremely stubborn, libidinous, easy-going, silly, goofy, and good-natured are all adjectives that might accurately describe me. I realize that some of them seem contradictory.
Some people are very fond of the Jack Kerouac quote that starts "The only people for me are the mad ones". And while that's a good quote, and one I can identify with, I'm far more fond of this (sadly much less quoted on profiles) quote by Walt Whitman: "Do I contradict myself? Very well then I contradict myself, (I am large, I contain multitudes.)".
