All that said, I do tend to get along better with people my age or younger--I have no idea why. Well, I have some suspicions, but I've not had the opportunity to really verify those thoughts. I just enjoy open-minded, non-jaded, "the world-is-still-relatively-new-to-me" perspectives, and I enjoy being with someone as they experience new things...thus the attraction to a younger crowd, I suppose. Regardless, I readily admit folks can be young-at-heart (just have to look into the mirror to verify *that* lol), so it's just a general rule of thumb with me.
BTW: I am living proof that a humanities degree (Philosophy) can lead to a rewarding (intellectually, financially, blah blah) life in which you can meet new and interesting people, be happy, and which it actually is difficult to get bored. Which is very good for someone like me who has "shiny object syndrome" (S.O.S. lol). Yea, yea, I have a masters...in business admin (yesh, that's an MBA) which I obtained to piss off my hoity toity fellow Philo graduates; more so, tho, because I started a company and rapidly realized that I was sadly ill prepared--like a straight guy who stumbles drunk into a bear bar (and I'm not talking about Yogi Bear here, folks). All that said, back when I was in college, I was hired by my university's IT division to create programs for them that had never been created before (oh it involved craziness including encryption, identity management, cross domain multifactor authentication, all wrapped in a nice extensible architecture accessible via a rather elegant API). They kept using it. For 15 years. In compy program lifespans, that's the equivalent to a 975 year old person. Why do I tell you this? Well, for some reason, my right and left brain not only like to talk to each other--but they frequently prank each other, much to my amusement.
Also: sad to have to actually note this, but I have zero tolerance for manipulative head games designed to harm another. If that's what you're interested in doing, please move along until you mature a bit more. Kthx! <- stated for ironic effect...
So that was what I was told. And there you go. Evidently I cause the world to sparkle. Gods, how gay. :P
Love movies--one of my favorite things to do is to cuddle up on the couch and catch a good movie. Some favorites include Memento and Usual Suspects (since both caused me to sit back and grin at the end). Also Shawshank Redemption, Stardust (again, both caused me to grin, but for different reasons, entirely). Big music aficionado, too...two genres I do NOT get into: country and gangsta rap (alas, they only exceedingly rarely cause me to grin--see a pattern, here?). Mostly listen to Alt/Rock/Punk. Favorite food: Mediterranean. *chomp* -- and big grin. :P
Being able to satisfy my, well, insatiable curiosity
The ability to think and act freely
Grapes (yes, grapes)
Good food, better company
My health! (Kinda goes without saying, I suppose. :P)
Grinning. Oooh. That's seven. I broke the rules. *grin*
What do I spend a lot of time thinking about?
All manner of things! Hah. There ya go. Vague and broad. Pithy yet open to interpretation. Fill it in as you see fit--then show it to me, b/c I will undoubtedly find it fascinating. I love seeing the world (and myself) through the eyes of another.
Other than that, *thinking* is actually part of my job--I'd be doing it even if they didn't pay me. Shhh. Don't tell them that! As it is, they *do* pay me, so I guess I'm pretty lucky.
Still, it amuses me that I've not really said anything of substance here. If you were wondering *what* I think about, let's see...all manner of things. Hahaha. Not going to fall for that again? Hrmph. K. Fine. Some things I think about include (but is certainly not all inclusive): the human condition; human nature; philosophical conundrums, politics, architecture, music, social engineering, theoretical physics, astrobiology, theories of social justice, my friends and family. Want to get me to start chuckling? Ask me about Libertarians. Oh, the immense amusement to be had in that fertile field...
All of which sounds trite and a bit boring to me, upon reading it again. So, what else? What can I say to give you some insight into that which makes me, well, me? Hmmmm. I have been known to go streaking through a downtown section of a small coastal city. Or plodding along a beach which had just been visited by bioluminescent algae...at midnight...just to see the evidence of my passing in the form of glowing foot prints in the sand. Or laying on my back watching the Persid meteor shower provide nature's original vision of a fireworks display. Or simply cuddling up and holding someone as I gaze into the dance of the flames from my fireplace. Very hypnotic, that. Especially with some nice music softly wafting in the background.
There are other things, of course, that I could admit to. There's the unfortunate incident involving the furry woodland creature, M&Ms, a friend frolicking in the woods in his tighty whiteys while his brother beat our food supplies with a stick, and the fact that to get away from the bear we'd have to run *up* hill....but I'm not wiling to admit any responsibility for any of that, nor acknowledge it even happened. At least not here. Where *anyone* could read such scandalous things. :P
