The six things I could never do without
In no particular order:
My close friends
A good computer and Internet
I spend a lot of time thinking about
, people, international politics, the future, the past, and sometimes even the present, how I'm going to make ends meet without having to go back to a straight job,
On a typical Friday night I am
Going to plays. Going out for dinner with one or more friends and/or my wife. Staying home and being domestic.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm a bit odd in a nerdy sort of way. In fact I was a nerd before nerds became cool.
You should message me if
You just want to chat, you want to ask me exactly what I'm doing on OKC, have questions, you want to know me better, you're looking for a blind fun date; you want to tell me to go jump in a lake.
