I'm generally down-to-earth, at least when life demands that I act as an adult, but at heart I'm a dreamer with my head in the clouds. I decided long ago that it was important to find what makes me happy and craft my life accordingly rather than follow the usual rules and expectations.
I have a very strong sense of ethics, compassion and honesty. I believe in the "golden rule", to treat others as you would have them treat you, and to be mindful of the privileges and advantages I have been given in life. Thus I am a political liberal, social libertarian, ethical humanist, civil rights extremist.
If the above sounds stuffy and/or self-righteous, don't worry. I spend much more time making people laugh than ranting. My sense of humor is fairly wide: at times dry, wry or sarcastic, at other times sneaking in word play or dropping obscure pop-cultural, historical, mathematical, musical, etc. references. I'm not above resorting to slapstick in the right situation. Give me a hand puppet and I can keep a 3 year old entertained for hours.
