Probably going to take time off and sell the old house I lived in
for 15 years. Also try and do something different work-wise, as
I've been doing the same thing, more or less, for 15 years.
I practice yoga and play music professionally...meaning I actually
am good enough to get hired and paid. Just not paid very much. I'm
in bands, but not rock bands. I'm not the Portland indie guy,
although I live three doors away from one of the Decembrists. I go
out and listen to music if it is exceptional......Chris Thile,
e.g.. I read, a lot, but it tends to be the NYT, the New Yorker,
and maybe a book, and a dozen RSS feeds. There is now too much
prose available for me to consume..thank you and damn you,
internet. I'm a good cook. I'm smart, I stay connected and I'm
pretty good at entertaining myself but still... Change is
And now it (the house) sold. Well, that happened a while ago, but I
thought you should know. I also got a newer car.
Yes, so really, right now I am really into my bands, yoga,
gardening, food and using technology to improve my life. Internet
dating..sure. Ebooks and podcasts...by all means. I'm definitely
not a 9-5 type guy anymore, and Portland suits that. I think I may
be a Portland cliche. Don't hate me.
If you take yourself really seriously, and have no sense of humor,
we won't get along...just keepin it real. And you can't be mean or
angry, at least in an unhealthy way. I realize there is plenty
personally and globally to be angry about, of course.
I don't care if you are really beautiful. Beauty is wonderful, but
beautiful women, as a generalization, tend to be mean. You have to
be nice. I'm looking for an honest, mutually supportive
relationship. I will not buy you jewelry just to make you happy,
because it won't make you-or me-happy. And it's expensive. Funky
bracelets and earrings don't count as jewelry.
