I'm good, I'm bad; I'm open-minded, I'm a snob; I'm fun, I'm lazy. Whatever...I'm mostly balanced, and I try to see things from all perspectives. A true Taurus in every aspect.
I cuss like a chimney, smoke like a sailor, I'm hung like Einstein, and am smart as a horse. Hey, wait...
I ride a Harley, have associated with 'real' bikers most of my life; I'm a veteran, and proud of it; (More to go later. Maybe.)
I wear a "modern" kilt often, and yes, in public. If I had (read: could afford) one or two more, these would be my daily wear.
Funk as puck.
Build a man a fire, and he'll be warm for the rest of the night. Light a man on fire and he'll be warm for the rest of his life.
Friends will help you move. Real friends will help you move bodies.
I don't date for the sake of dating. I don't date for the purpose of easy access. Dating is a trial process for finding a lifelong partner. I'd prefer to be, and generally am, single than to date just to not be alone. I'm fine with alone...it would sometimes be nice to have someone to share it with, though ;)
Socially liberal, fiscally conservative, STRONGLY anti-socialist. Hate what has become of our political system. Strongly dislike the Republican Party for its enforced moralisms. HATE the Democratic Party for too many reasons; including its shift into pure socialism, as well as its love of legislated security. Hate that the Libertarian Party 1) has no political strength, and 2) sold out its Libertarian ideals. I am a Libertarian (as in the ideal, not the party) and Constitutionalist. I think that Bill Clinton was economically the worst thing to happen to this country in my lifetime and that the majority of the current economic crisis can be laid squarely at his feet (NAFTA? WTO?), and that Obama has a chance to catch up with him.

"In these sentiments, Sir, I agree to this Constitution, with all its faults, — if they are such; because I think a general Government necessary for us, and there is no form of government but what may be a blessing to the people, if well administered; and I believe, farther, that this is likely to be well administered for a course of years, and can only end in despotism, as other forms have done before it, when the people shall become so corrupted as to need despotic government, being incapable of any other." - Benjamin Franklin
On updating my profile here at OKC:
It seems I only add to what's here, and never/rarely remove what's no longer relevant. I'm a 'statistic in the economic downturn'; I left my career to provide home health/hospice care to my grandparents, and have bounced from job to job looking for a new 'home' since. I've sold my house, my Harley, my astronomy gear, and much else of the crap I've amassed over the years. I have goals to again have a motorcycle that I love, and get back into astronomy and astrophotography. I have a wonderful and amazing Irish Wolfhound who just turned three. I've dropped wanting to own a screen printing business, as there're just way too damned many of them, and the artists are generally much better than I am. I do have other business goals, however, and am working toward achieving those as I also continue to seek re-entry into my former career (IT).
Places I've lived:
(this isn't really here for OKC purposes, but because it seems like I've lived so many places that I'm starting to forget them. Maybe they'll start some conversations, though)
Chicago and west 'burbs
Bradenton, Sarasota, Orlando, St Petersburg, and Tampa, Florida
Savannah, Alpharetta, Atlanta, and Ludowici Georgia
DC (really DC, not VA or MD. 14th and R area)
San Antonio, Texas
Raleigh, NC (current)
About 10 college towns in the Midwest as a kid, including Champaign/Urbana (only one I'm sure of)
That's all I can think of. I got all the major ones, anyway. I think :/
I am *bleep*, *bleep*, and that other thing
