My self-summary
I'm a crazy from the northwoods who enjoys (and appreciates) life and culture. I like to read and play games of strategy (backgammon, cards, board games, etc.). Traveling is something I love. Without travel I don't know what I would do. While experiencing other people and cultures you learn more about yourself than anything, and you learn how this crazy world is all one. It doesn't matter if you travel to the ends of the Earth or across the street, there is always something to be learned. Knowledge is the key to everything. I just like to be out there doing something. Also in my free time I like to research viking-age Scandinavian history, play in Kubb tournaments, and follow the Minnesota Twins and Chelsea Football Club with passion.

But, in reality, I really don't know what to say about myself in a paragraph or two on here. I rather be asked! Sometimes it is hard to psychoanalyze yourself :) Where does a person begin? And it seems that every time I try to rewrite this, I sound like more of a nerd.

I am in INTJ if you dig that kind of stuff.

Also I have to apologize for my pictures, they are a tad bit dated. I take lots of pictures but none of myself.
What I’m doing with my life
As of late, after being froze out of academia and general frustration with society , I have returned to my ancestrial farm to live an agrarian lifestyle. I also teach Norwegian online, buy and sell books, and am working on a novel.
I’m really good at
I tend not to brag, but maybe rummy and backgammon? I do have an uncanny ability to "read" other people though. I can tell their motives, backgrounds, and likes and dislikes very well. It is kind of scary sometimes. But I try not to think in that way when I meet people. But when I do I am exactly right 95% of the time.
The first things people usually notice about me
You would have to ask them i guess ;)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Anything by Hunter S. Thompson, Ernest Hemingway, but especially Jack Kerouac. I actually like all the beat writers. Catcher in the Rye King Harold's Saga The Vineland Saga Contact The Great Gatsby and many more to come and too many to name actually! My favorite book is Big Sur by Kerouac.

Movies: Braveheart all of the Star Trek movies Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas Where the Buffalo Roam The Godfather The Man Without a Face The Hustler The Big Labowski Big Sur On the Road I really don't watch too many movies and these are all I can think of now.

TV Shows: Mad Men is my all-time favorite show. But I also like, SNL South Park Law and Order SVU The Sopranos Star Trek X-Files Portlandia Louis The Sarah Silverman Program Taxi The Simpsons. But I am more of a reader I guess.

Music: I like cool Jazz and true grunge music, but these are the more "popular" bands I listen to..... Pink Floyd Bob Dylan Miles Davis Nirvana Pearl Jam Sonic Youth Alice in Chains Marcy Playground The Beatles The Doors Led Zeppelin Journey MGMT Stone Temple Pilots. These are the main ones anyways
The six things I could never do without
Problems to exercise my brain, good food, good literature, travel, nature, coffee.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Life in general, the future, and the past.
On a typical Friday night I am
Relaxing at home reading, writing, or out having a few drinks in a quiet, dimly-lit pub.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
You should message me if
you would like to talk to me....
