I think for the most part I'm a tradesman... I enjoy working with my hands. This is probably why I love gardening, woodworking.
I regularly listen to NPR because I enjoy keeping up to date on what is transpiring in the world. I love learning new things & thoroughly enjoy flexing my vocabulary muscles. I do read in the summer mostly, but during the school year I mostly 'read' textbooks.
I also tend to ask rather technical questions. They usually pertain to a project I am pursuing or some other interest. I don't really expect an answer, but if you give me one that seems to make sense I will be impressed.
A note about my personality...
I tend to be plain spoken, although sensitive when the situation demands. I feel that playing games impedes the initial intent of relationships, getting to know each other. No subject is taboo.
