* My family.
Blood family is important, but I also value my chosen family just
as much. Friends are the family you choose; they mean the world to
me, and I would do just about anything for the people who would do
the same for me.
* The internet.
I'm a geek
, without a
doubt. I imagine that, one day, I could be a nomad, wandering
around whatever country I'm in, doing consulting work (or
prizefighting in underground, illegal boxing rings or fighting
cages for the money to gas my ride to the next city). I could have
all my worldly possessions in whatever vehicle I would be owning at
the time. One of those possessions would be a laptop, so I could
stay in touch with the people who matter to me and keep my computer
skils up to date.
* Physical affection.
I'm close with my friends. I hug as a greeting and as a farewell.
Even dudes. I could consider it a wonderful time to be under a tree
with nothing around but the star-filled sky... if I were cuddled up
against someone I love whilst doing so. I love touching, I love
hugging, cuddling, kissing, nibbling, biting... etc, so on, and so
If I could choose the order I'd lose the five senses, touch would
be the last to go. I love touching and being touched.
Ok, enough of that.
* Non-vanilla proclivities.
Sticks and stones may break my bones, but whips
excite me. I love ropes
. I love floggers
. I love doing new, crazy
things in bed with my lover. Life without bondage or S&M would
be far less fun.
* Martial arts.
I kind of touched on this earlier, but I'm a physically active
person, and I love the continuing self-improvement process which
comes as part of the whole package.
Oh, yeah. And I love fighting, too.
Let's face it. There's plenty in this life that wants to take away
our time. I value my time very much, and I value the time I have
having fun. Whether it's video games
, Magic the Gathering
, role playing
, submission fighting
anything else physically or mentally stimulating, I couldn't do
without my fun. Learning to dance is the current bit of fun I'm
learning to pick up.
(Yes, it's seven, I don't care.) I've been making up for lost time
by learning the bass and the piano
(and I'll probably pick up the
when I have
more time and money). I want to learn everything I can about music
and the making of it.
