My self-summary
If Walt Whitman were a Lumberjack/Mechanic/Maker.

ENFJ, if that's your cup of tea.
Self identified as a 2.5 on the Kinsey.

I am in a healthy, fulfilling, communicative, and dedicated relationship with a loving partner.

Feminist, lumbersexual.
What I’m doing with my life
I build well engineered, quality chicken coops on the side. And I'm building myself a tinyhome. Work in progress, but really, we all are.

Constant state of self improvement and awareness.

I'm an advocate for urban agriculture and local sustainability. I'm just as at home debating zoning ordinance as I am tilling, tending, weeding, harvesting, and homesteading.
I’m really good at
I fix things, if it can be repaired, I'll find a way.

I am a human puppy, according to some. I make conversation with anyone. Definitely more friendly conversation than butt-sniffing.
The first things people usually notice about me
I am not little, I am frequently referred to as an Ox, Yeti, Bear, or Hulk.

My guffaws rival the barbaric yalps of Whitman, and can be heard for several blocks.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Major caveat: I can't read well, at least not at the adult level, so I pretty much only have cookbooks, home repair guides, periodicals, and Calvin and Hobbes. If you're a bibliophile, I dig that. Neruda and Whitman have my regular attention, as well, Frost and Thoreau. This is an area of constant improvement.

Don't own a TV, but dig Eureka, Firefly, BSG, Star Trek (TNG, Voyager), Doctor Who (Eccleston ftw).

Joy Kills Sorrow, Electric Wizard, Vivaldi's Oboe Concerti, Hawksly Workman, Opeth, Deadmau5, Binary Star, and Neal Hellman. I grew up on Simon and Garfunkle, Iron Butterfly, and BS&T. I'm glued to NPR at work and while driving, I love Fresh Air, Performance Today, Harmonia, and The Story (with Dick Gordon).

Yes, food, I like foods. I'm rather fond of curry, pizza, meatloaf and almost every vegetable imaginable. I love Poutine, and I'm rather a snob about it. For some reason Dairy and I disagree, so, cheese is a frenemy.

This category is missing:
Klimt, Matisse, Kahlo, Mucha, Ostrozovich, not in that order.
The six things I could never do without
The commons
Creative/design outlets
The five senses

(7. Palindromes???)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Utopian Socialism.

Subsistence Agriculture.

Interstate Pedalways/Trails, Daniel Boone and Johnny Appleseed managed just fine without cars.

Informed Consent and the Enthusiastic Yes. Taken out of context they sound like a striking title for a musical. Taken in context, they're a part of my vocabulary and I practice them quite sternly.
On a typical Friday night I am
Tinkering, reading, boozing, wrenching, or riding...

Long autumn bike rides are an instant positive response. Bonus points for stargazing.

My go-to haunt is the Dorman, but a change of scenery would be nice. I chose Pure over Peppy's, mostly because they changed vendors, and nothing tastes the same.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm in the midst of losing almost half my body weight, down from 410 to 380. I've been told I "carry it well", but it's literally killing me and I will not let it.
You should message me if
You like the idea of a close, intimate friendship that is mutually beneficial. I am a source of knowledge for independent living, and enjoy sharing that knowledge with others.

You should also message me if you'd like to ride around the city, I'm always down for a bike date!!

I also have no issue with driving 12 hours for a weekend getaway, just saying.

If you're nice to me, I will build you things...
