********************************************

♦ The youngest son of a youngest son.

♦ I am an INFP, according to the Briggs Myers Indicator Test.

♦ However, if you prefer the Enneagram, I am a Type 4 with a 3 Wing.

♦ I'm rather popular with women named Barbara, Elizabeth, and Emilia, but not so much with the Margarets, Alyssas, and Courtneys of the world. Still trying to comprehend this nominative determinism.

♦ Still depressed that Tango Cafe has closed.

♦ In college, my nickname on the rugby team was "Burns", though this had nothing to do with Scottish poetry or arsonism.

♦ I have a strange fascination with the Innsbruck Winter Olympics.

♦ I often get Simon Bolivar and Simone de Beauvoir confused. Same goes for Plutarch & Petrarch, Sheila E & Sheena Easton ...

♦ I can do without mayonnaise, raisins, rhubarb, amusement parks, Chopin, and the colour pink.

♦ I often go into Wal Mart in the middle of the night, but only out of anthropological curiosity.
What I’m doing with my life
Dolce far niente - at either end of the economic stratum, there is a leisure class.
I’m really good at
¤ strolling into work around 11, taking ninety minutes for lunch, then finding some excuse to be out of there by 3.

¤ cribbage and canasta, so long as someone else is keeping score. I can teach you how to play mancala.

¤ orienteering.

¤ atoning for educatability through delicate beauty.

¤ making the blind to walk, the deaf to see, and the lame to hear.

¤ using Rhodesian slang, e.g. "Bowl me the ages" and "Charity glide to society".

Whom do you imagine yourself to be when you listen to a particular piece of music ?
