Let's see... open ended essay right? This could get dangerous... Well, we all know there's really too much to say, but I have a tendency to write too much, so I'll just keep going. Like the energizer bunny. I just need to have somebody flip my batteries around so I keep coming and coming and coming.... I like to tell really bad, dirty jokes. But I'm all talk. I swear. Unfortunately.
More personality, lesseehere... I am right on the fence politically. I've been known to equally piss off gun toting, over weight, white guys and gay Buddhist vegans. I made one cry once. On Valentine's Day. It was hilarious. When I tried to tell him we're obviously omnivores, he tried to tell me that humans were not meant to eat meat, and that our incisors were the result of evolution from forcing ourselves to eat said meat for thousands of years. When I pointed out that whichever was the case, humans should eat meat, well.. I didn't set out to make him cry... maybe he just wasn't used to having someone stand up to him like that and challenge his beliefs. Maybe he had mommy issues. But I digress. Where was I? Oh, right, Politics... The sad part of both the Gore/Bush and the Bush/Kerry campaigns was that one of them would win. I like McCain and Palin as people, but agree with Obama and Biden politically. Go figure. I personally will never have an abortion, but I think they should be legal and available. I am 98% straight, but I think Gay Marriage needs to be legal, and it should be illegal in every state to discriminate based on sexual orientation. Crimes against homosexuals because of their orientation also need to be considered hate crimes in every state. Silly me, wanting basic civil rights for every American. What a looney leftist. (The 2% is Kate Winslet, in case you were curious.) Religiously... well, that's a huge topic for me. If you'd really like to get into it, IM me. I'm quite spiritual, but also very much against organized religion. I always make a point to NOT FORCE my beliefs on others, so don't worry about me preaching about the end times or giving you a copy of the book of mormon or anything. Actually, wait. I totally will. Henceforth, all potential friends will receive a random holy text of my choosing.
The other thing you should know - I'm very opinionated. And I love to discuss anything and everything. I have no problem if you don't see things my way, as long as you have an open mind and agree to disagree.
I find it odd to NOT give your car a name.
I love being outside when other people consider the weather foul. I don't mean to, really, it just turns out that way. I grew up in Tempe, AZ, so I'm used to soul sucking heat. So on summer days when it's 70% humidity and 95 degrees F out, I'll head for the park. When it rains I'll dance in the street. When it's cold and windy I'll bundle up so I can sit under the trees and ponder what they'll look like when their leaves come back.
Mountains make me feel small and lonely, but the ocean feels like my other half. Cloud watching makes me feel insignificant, but stargazing calms me.
I don't climb nearly as many trees as I should.
I think kissing should be an Olympic sport. Seriously. It really shouldn't have such heavy associations. We're all serial monogamists nowadays. It's depressing. Kissing should be something done often, done enthusiastically, done well and done in the rain whenever possible.
And finally, you should know that even though I am a writer and an overall lover of the English language, I am carrying on torrid affairs with run-on sentences, fragments, ellipsises (ellipsi?), adverbs, ending sentences in prepositions and starting my sentences with 'and', 'so' or 'but'.
So... if you want more, you'll just have to get to know me.
I am creative, introspective, and wry
