Grab a beverage (it's okay, I will wait until you find one), sit back, and learn all there is to know (well not all, but hopefully enough knowledge to know if you want to talk to this guy or not. I sure hope you do, because I think you are pretty cool for clicking on my profile to begin with) about this echolden guy.
echolden's History in 200 words or less or How I stopped worrying about trying to wow you all with flair and just put down the nitty gritty details:
I moved to Seattle about ten years ago from NYC and am enjoying myself in Seattle. I grew up in a small town in Northwest Ohio and got the hell out of dodge as soon as I could. I love to watch movies, going on long walks and exploring the city (you see much more on foot!), eating at interesting places in this great city and trying new foods (current addiction: fried pig ears!), finding a quiet place to read, getting lost and finding my way back home (I get lost a lot, but never the same way twice), being still while watching the skyline (and listening to the rain at 4am), and finding a place to have a drink where I don't have to shout (i miss my old dive bars, it seems they all have become sports bars with a ton of LCD monitors...alas).
echolden quick facts:
I have been called quick witted, charming, kind, and a bunch of expletives that I am sure that were meant as a compliment.
I have a problem saying the following words:
- Salad and Solid
- Single and Signal
I am a sucker for a clever cat photo meme (hell sometimes a not so clever one).
At one point I was a World Records Holder (along with 5,785 other people) for worlds largest snowball fight. It was mostly ice, but still amazing to be in the middle of.
My philosophy on how to live life is taken from the main rule in improv comedy: "Yes, and..."
I will admit my mistakes which will haunt me until...
...I replay my entire day in my mind before going to bed every evening. This is a very humbling practice, sometimes one does not realize one is being an asshole until much later in the day.
I am positive that human evolution peaked when we started putting ice cubes in our drinks to water them down or cool them.
I have a gym membership, but often opt to go on crazy long walks throughout this city with a backpack full of books instead, bonus points if I find a place to stop and read from one.
I am loyal, probably too loyal.
I forgive easily, probably too easily.
I care, probably too much in this evil world.
I try not to censor myself, at least in written word, and let it all flow free.
ok, I lied, here is some flair. *sparkle* *fizzz* *crack crack pop* and for the grand finale <razzmatazz>
