My self-summary
I am human, with all the rights, privileges, and pitfalls included. I am curious. I like politics, but dislike politicians. I enjoy most forms of exercise, and will try them all eventually. I like to work with my hands, to figure out how things work, to fix what is broken. I am not immediately open when I meet people, but after finding some level of comfort, more details emerge. I am who I thought I was, but I may not be finished with the idea.
What I’m doing with my life
Trying to improve it and enjoy it. Looking for a new challenge, something to tax my brain. Always trying to learn what makes me tick. Seeking someone else to explore the world with.
Planning for changes. Comfort is nice, but new experience and risk bring growth. I think I need to move out of my comfort zone.
I’m really good at
filling out profiles. Slowly.
buying a round.
something I like to call "fun."
I believe I have mastered the road trip.
encouraging others to try it, whatever it is.
Playing outdoors, in any weather.
The first things people usually notice about me

I take everything so seriously.
Thick luscious hair.

No assembly required.
I actually asked some people, and most said calves.

Music, glorious music.

Bike- the pedal kind.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why can't my computer fill out this profile? It should have sentience by now.

New Orleans

Are we there yet? I hope not, because I'm still enjoying the ride.

What is that song?

Which one of my senses do I enjoy the most? This may be a question too difficult to answer.

The Rebirth Brass Band. If you've never seen them, stop what you're doing and go NOW!

where can I get a Hubig's pie? You can now order Simon Hubig's delicious pies online, and I've got some. Mmmmm... UPDATE 7/28/12 The Hubig's bakery burned to the ground on Friday. :(

A longer bike ride, I'm always interested in a longer ride.

Life is a journey, but if you don't pipe down, I'll turn this car around right now!

Cookies, and baked goods in general. Mmmm...

According to OKC, am I athletic, fit, average, or just healthy?
How will I sleep without the answer!

Why people say, "I hope you can keep up with me"? If you truly care for someone, wouldn't you slow down to help them out, encourage them? And would you not appreciate the same kindness in return?

Why OKC removes features that people might actually enjoy?
On a typical Friday night I am
secretly controlling left turn arrows. Heh heh heh.
making a full report to the mothership.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have never worn a stovepipe hat, ever.
Global warming, all my fault. Oops.
I don't use gravity.
You should message me if
you have the proper forms in the proper order(no staples), there is a good reason, or just on a whim, your parole has not been revoked, you want to know something not covered above, you have random questions, you have random answers, they told you not to, you want me to answer(not someone else), we might find each other heuristic and seek to digress to excursus..
