I like to start each day by swimming with platypusses.... platypi? I am also proficient in the pluralization of the names of most egg laying mammals. At the age of nine I was abandoned in the woods with only 2 liters of diet Pepsi, a stick (redundant, I know) and 2 dozen Faberge eggs. The Pepsi and eggs were delicious, the stick was a most welcome companion during the long and terrible night. Whilst on my wooded sojourn I found the time, between fighting bears for outhouse privileges and a run in with a particularly viscous band of beavers who stole my woods-wife (stick), to invent the musical style now known as Jazz. My first job, at the age of twelve was to wind Big Ben every morning; by hand. At the age of fifteen I once stumbled drunkenly from a tapas bar in Pamplona where I mistook a bull for a not-so-fair lass I once knew. I pursued "her" and a large group of "her" friends down the street for hours before sobering up and realizing my mistake. The rest is history. The next 10 years of my life I spent on the L train platform at Union Sq. next to the violinist, who clearly sold his soul to Satan so he could become the worst violinist who has ever walked the earth, in order to learn the true meaning of tolerance and patience. I think it worked, as I was able to restrain myself from throttling him with the horse, or in his case donkey, hair from the bow he uses to make the unholy cacophony of sound that I can only assume he calls music. After that I journeyed through eastern Europe, as a male mail order bride, where a gypsy foretold that I would one day die heroically in space. I can only assume that means the violinist and I will meet again for the final showdown... IN SPACE!
To be continued...
On a more serious note; I recently moved to Brooklyn from Savannah, GA because I had nothing better to do at the time.
Stuff that interests me: soccer (COYI!), meeting new and interesting people, laughing, music, the great outdoors, art, writing, reading and making things. Not necessarily in that order.
Basically what I'm looking for is someone I can be myself around and someone who can be their self around me. Hopefully, they will be the same person.
