Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Open minded, logical, full of random knowledge, my favorite book is
the Atlas, listening to the Beach Boys in the winter, impossible to
offend, never had my wisdom teeth or tonsils removed, I failed my
driver's test last week because I didn't read the manual, yet have
a flawless driving record for 18 years, cheese and wine.
I'm Louisiana born and bred but after college I left home to see
what else there is to offer. From there I moved to Alaska,
Colorado, and Yosemite. I was happy there for 7 years and then
desired to back in a city without leaving the west coast. And
Portland had what I was looking for as most of my friends I've made
through the years are either from here or moved here from my
hometown (Shreveport, LA, 4th unhappiest city in the country in a
recent poll, there's a reason we all left). The nice thing about
having all my Cajun friends up here is when we get together and
I had been blessed over the past several years with a job that
supplied me with plenty of vacation time. So I got to travel around
quite a bit. It was a dream job secluded in the national forests
but being away from society grew old.

I graduated with a degree in history and since then it's hard for
me to read non-fiction. Some favorite authors are Neil Gaiman,
Christopher Moore, Neil Strauss, Chuck Palanuik, Irvine Welsh,
Movies, too many to mention. I'll give anything a chance. Probably
my favorite over the past 5 years is Southland Tales, and I really
enjoy David Lynch movies too. Killer Clowns from Outer Space isn't
Shows, I've kinda lost grip on what's a good show to watch
nowadays. If anything I hear enough from friends, then two years
later I watch it on Netflix.
Music. That's too big of a topic.
Food. Yes I'm hungry. Vegetables sound great. Fruit is delicious,
I'll take some grains too. Meat is nice too just keep out the fatty
parts unless we're talking about cracklins.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Something to read
I'm out of ideas, I could do without a lot, it's happened before
due to natural disaster.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Why cactus doesn't grow in wet climates. Pay wage of postal
employees (hourly or salary), World Geography, What happened to
Emilio Estaves, local politics, going to Africa and having a
friendly encounter with a hippo, and the logistics of being a 3rd
base coach in baseball.

Either working or going easy as I work Saturday mornings. I'm not
big on Friday nights. I enjoy Sundays and Mondays much more.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
There was this couple weeks of debauchery in Chang Mai, Thailand,
there was no prostitution or sex changes involved, but I was a
keynote speaker for a major protest against the government
unknowingly after waking up from best/worst idea someone ever had
and it's stamped on me forever.
