– Please Understand Me II
I distrust authority on principle but I earn my money as a petty bureaucrat- this makes me something like a spineless iconoclast. I try to have a clever comment for any situation, but it's so seldom appropriate to voice it. I listen to big band and swing, but I hate to dance. I'm excessively early to movies, precisely on time to parties, and generally overdressed for any occasion. I would rather walk than drive, which is why I've moved closer to work and my favorite bars– I'm not so much environmentally conscious as sedentary and a bad driver.
I would describe myself as tranquil. It sounds like a superlative, but if we expound on the idea it becomes less flattering. I enjoy staying in and watching a movie, reading, or having an odd and topic-jumping conversation with a friend. I don't like excessive noise or crowds. I'm quiet. I've been accused of being emotionally distant, but only by non-romantic acquaintances.
I live with one cat. She describes me as slow-witted, but comfortable.
