I am often too sarcastic for my own good and use too many obscure references. I have been known to speak before thinking and usually to say the wrong thing.
When I was 13, my mom bet me that I wouldn't read 10 books during the summer. I read 50 in three months. I donate to public libraries when I am done reading. I go to the bookstore at least once a week. Maybe twice a week. Getting one of those electronic books was both the most awesome and worst thing that could have happened to me. Now I can carry all sorts of books with me. And on the downside, I buy even more books now.
I ate a starfish. And some kangaroo. And a scorpion. And some dog. And some cat. And some sea urchin. And some raw horse. And some bat. I can now add camel to the list. I've gone swimming over the Marianas Trench. I've climbed the Great Wall (and got drunk while climbing it) and visited Tienanmen Square. I've spent New Years in Tokyo and Thanksgiving in Hong Kong. I've fed a wombat in Australia. I've lived in Spain. I've been in a bullfight. I have almost been to every continent now. My latest goal is to get to Antarctica before I turn 40. I may or may not attempt to smuggle a penguin back with me.
I am a geek. I enjoy Star Wars (the original trilogy - not those three horrible ones that came out recently) and Dr. Who.
I watch sports. I am a San Diego Chargers fan (one of the most painful things in my life) and I can guarantee that I will never cheer for the Patriots or the Raiders (sorry?).
I am handy around the house.
If I don't know, I will probably go look it up. I don't think I will ever stop learning something. I am trying to teach myself to play the mandolin now. And I have no musical talent. It's not going well. But, damnit, I will learn. I gave up on the mandolin. too many strings. I've decided to start smaller. now attempting to learn the ukulele.
I am witty, aware, and lost.
