"Life is a banquet and most poor bastards are starving to death! Live! Live! Live!" -Auntie Mame
I'm GGG(See: Dan Savage), ENFP, and a top; an affectionate flirt with a shocking sense of humor. I'm philosophically punk a la 70's NYC/London, but I don't truck with stereotypes. I laugh a lot. I'm not a "guy's guy". I'm LGBT friendly and I run all over the place with a crowd of all ages, mostly girls.
I hope you like all that.
If you are anti abortion rights, if you are anti LGBT constitutional civil rights, if you are an active alcoholic/addict/2 pack-a-day smoker, if you are fanatically religious, then it's not going to happen for us.
If you are not in the 95th percentile or better of big, sexy brains and do not have a pretty high okc match or friend percentage with me then, well, hmmm...
I've been around and have the adventure stories, scars, and mementos to show for it. Louisville, Chicago, Ann Arbor, NYC, Los Angeles, Martha's Vineyard, Canada, Mexico, Brazil, Europe,(note Oxford comma!) and have circled the US a bunch. New Orleans too. I felt it when I arrived one August to work a gig at sweaty Tipitina's and eat many "hangover breakfasts" at Uglesich's.
I am home.
I am a reader. Usually one Tome and one Pulp at any given time. Newspapers(MUST have Sunday NYT), magazines, and local free papers as well.
Classic Hollywood and a lot else in film entertains me. TV here and there.
Music, especially live, makes me happy. I swing dance to a greasy Jump Blues band on a weeknight. I karaoke at a LGBT/mixed bar occasionally.
I fall into parades and Second Lines. I find myself in costume more than many folks, but not nearly often enough.
I listen to WWOZ, WTUL, and WWNO a lot.
My sartorial and decorating style are antique, vintage, and thrift with a few Mod Cons thrown in for utility and contrast.
I have creative impulses. I studied acting, have some visual arts and design talent, I sing and play garage guitar. I sew but treat my Singer Touch and Sew like a funny car at the strip. I owned a vintage clothing shop that specialized in costume/formal wear rental. We drank, dressed up and partied a lot. Training for NOLA, hmm?
I like cats, and they like me.
I like to cook, love to eat out and I mix a wunnerful cocktail.
I pedal everywhere in all weather on the Basket Bomber Schwinn. Black Betty the Battlewagon gets fired up when haulin' needs doin'.
I like to travel. Day trips, weekenders, national and international. I hike the ruins, stroll the museums and galleries, lounge on the beaches, dance to the music, eat the local dishes and drink the local fermented and distilled beverages.
I'm trying to do all those fun/goofy/silly events, openings, civic activities and political outreach that make neighborhood and local life fulfilling.
Are you cynically hopeful, judgmentally open minded, adventurous but not reckless, unusual good-weird but not a hot mess? Are you inquisitive and engaging? Do you take pretty good care of yourself and like to like the way you look?
I occasionally like a little lipstick, makeup, and high heels.
On YOU, silly.
