Wrecked my 2001 Subaru Forester last week, original engine with 366,002 miles. I bought it new 13 years ago, and my Subaru has carried me all over the country and down to Rocky Point many times and was always a reliable friend. Viewing will take place at Tucson Subaru, 2901 N Oracle on Saturday from 10 AM to noon, with cremation on Sunday at a location to be announced.
What I’m doing with my life
Watering trees, mostly. I sort of do slow-mo real estate flipping
and the new place had no trees. So now I have a bunch of very
demanding trees. Studying Spanish with an eye to moving to Panama
or Ecuador someday.
I’m really good at
I play hurdy-gurdy, button accordion, and hammered dulcimer. I'm
really atrocious, practicing to be merely horrible. I love sailing
although I'm just at the level of pointing the boat where I want to
go, and dealing with whatever the boom wants to do. It's
challenging enough to keep me in the moment so I'm not fretting
about work or other stuff.
The first things people usually notice about me
I know how to make nasi goreng.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Slow Death by Rubber Duck is about all the nasty chemicals in
everyday objects. Sex Lives of Cannibals is a memoir by a guy who
lived on Tarawa in the South Pacific.
The six things I could never do without
Coffee on weekdays and sleeping in on weekends.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Moving to Panama. Pinetop, Rocky Point, and Coronas. The
similarities between Talmudic discourse, literary
deconstructionists, and object-oriented programming purists. Why
the guy who's standing on a corner in Winslow, Arizona and has 7
woman problems is trying for number 8. Getting an irrigation system
On a typical Friday night I am
One infamous first date Barbara and I ditched our friends at the
Gaslight, leaving them with the bar tab, and drove to Vancouver to
see the Vancouver folk festival.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Sometimes, in the car, I listen to that guy who tells people to pay
off their mortgages and buy mutual funds. I invented the word
"isofruitopic", check it out!
You should message me if
Good kisser and not an arsonist. I'm not allowed to hang out with arsonists anymore.
