My self-summary
Hey... what am I doing here? I just wanted to answer an LJ quiz! Oh, you sneaky gits. First you trick me into showing up, you test my resolve to forsake The Game, and remain tauntingly impassive as I fail. Blackguards, the lot of you. All right; you win.

I had an adolescence that lasted eighteen years. While my peers went to college or started raising kids, I completed my eight-year degree plan in Uniformed Thuggery and Imperialism. Wait, wait-- that's all wrong. I was in the Army throughout most of Clinton's tenure, so I guess I was actually a kind, gentle, socially aware peacekeeper. I was also, interpretation notwithstanding, a passing fine janitor-- a daring leader of janitors, by the end of it. I missed 11SEP01 by six weeks. By then I was toasting sandwiches at Quizno's. If only I'd listened to SSG Jones about staying in shape, I could have been shot at, just like him. O, the humanity.

Fear not; I grew out my hair and got a real job. I run a smallish retail outlet of an 86-year-old craft and DIY company. I'm really good at it, too. It involves everything from teaching to stewardship to haggling. I deal with everyone from the devout to the depraved, the sane to the deranged. I have a blast, every day. I get paid decently to do it. I guess I've got that job thing under control. Odd, really, but it's part of my proof that God's got my back, though She's got a really fucked up sense of humor. At least She's good at Skee-Ball. BTW I hear Ahura Mazda totally digs Paki-style cricket. If only we could find a decent hobby for Allah(May He Seek Therapy), the Bored and Petulant.

I game with funny-shaped dice. I practice Transcendental Marksmanship. I brag about having once been a half-assed swordsman. I enjoy singing well. I play guitar very poorly, but it's only been two months. I love living-history, pop-culture, self-reliance, and rebellion by way of snarky comments. I'm very introspective. I think too much. I quit all the things that were bad for me, like the militaryand drugs.

PS Someday I'll be wealthy by my own hand. I'm already nearly comfortable. I don't want to boast, but it's a novel experience for me. Yay, security!

I am the luckiest, bastard, and on earth
What I’m doing with my life
As I said before, I'm in charge of a retail craft store based around leathercraft. It's really starting to pay off for me, and I'm quite content with the idea of doing it for the rest of my life. Yes, I am also motivated by greed. I continue to read several books at once; I just recently finished reading "Invisible Monsters", "Stranger in a Strange Land", and "Halo: The Flood". I'm trying to find another copy of Stirling's alt-history novel, "Marching Through Georgia" and a good, indestructible copy of "Finnegan's Wake". I am also attempting to draw attention away from my rather barrel-shaped chest by packing another fifteen to twenty pounds of muscle on my arms and shoulders. Since I am thirty-one, this means I am constantly aching. Weightlifting can suck, a bit. Every day, in every way, I'm getting better and better.
I’m really good at
Storytelling: I am a natural raconteur and mimic. The Irish might refer to this as the "Gift of Gab". I'm not really sure what the Irish refer to things as, since I'm only a Texan with a whooole lotta Mickeys in the woodpile. Speaking in metaphors: Why say three words when prophecy will suffice? Someday I'll make a bang-up Campbellian Old Hermity Wizard. :Running my mouth: I do go on, it's a flaw I recognize. I am(in spite of all that), sometimes, able to enjoy the silence. Making things with my hands: I have always been a tinkerer and craftsman. Army equipment was always a snap to mess with, I built my first functioning crossbow when I was nine, and I'm a quite good leathercrafter. I would likely rate "Journeyman" in the old English Cordwainer's Guild. I've also got a passion for showing others just how capable *they* can be, creation-wise. Using/maintaining ranged weaponry: I grew up in a firearms-friendly family. Not Republicans, per se, but armed nonetheless. I've got a talent for ensuring Projectile A lands on Target B, whether I am throwing a knife, loosing an arrow, or firing a rifle, cannon, or rocket. I have sometimes wished I could trade up for something useful, like card tricks or being able to do push-ups with my dingus.
The first things people usually notice about me
My eyes(very bright blue, modified by wardrobe, mood, and weather), my voice(a clear, well-modulated tenor speaking in a General American accent; there are the merest hints of "Cornhusker Nose" and "Texas, Y'all"), and my handshake(a very carefully gentle machine-press; I can hand-sew through leather without using pliers or thimbles).

The six things I could never do without
Sovereign Franchise, good manners, basic physical/spiritual sustenance, my hands, Constitutional Guarantees, the rest of Humanity.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The world and my place in it, sex in all of its' myriad glories, what good I can do for myself first and how to spend what's left on others, how to practice honesty and compassion, whether the current Battlestar Galactica could take on the Original Series Enterprise and win.
On a typical Friday night I am
Gaming with funny-shaped dice, people-watching at Numbers or Havok, tickling my GF until she pees, watching Sci-Fi's Friday night shows, gaming online, or sleeping.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I've got a *very* active imagination, especially when it comes to sex. I also have no tolerance for games in romance, especially "Hard To Get" or "The Rules". If I get a whiff of that, I shall vanish altogether, as sunlight is obscured by a cloud of bullshit.
