I shower and shave (regularly), shampoo (sometimes, I repeat), and
moisturize. My attitude is cheerful and I'm a glass-is-half-full
guy. Process oriented, romantically inclined, and I take the long
I'm gainfully employed and survey says all of my ex-employers would
take me back, which probably means I have a strong work ethic or
something. But all that love didn't stop me from taking a month off
and going to Costa Rica for a Spanish immersion program, most of
which I've forgotten. Or only think I have - because I'm sure it's
sitting in my brain somewhere, just waiting to pop out at an
I have opinions on everything, and don't hesitate to share them
when they fall within my field of expertise.
