I love music like it's oxygen. All kinds, everything from the band to kid koala. I tend to get a bit obsessive about it. not just the music itself but because i think it has so much to do with our cultural heritage. folk music is the greatest thing in the world to me. But chuck d is just as folk as woody guthrie they tell the stories of their people, of our people.
i love old things and handmade things where you can just feel the craftmanship that went into it. Whether it's a pair of boots or a banjo or an oak desk i love it.
I love to cook. I judge restaurants based on their ability to perfectly roast a chicken. I talk a lot. I tell stories in public and am considering stand up. I also like to listen. I believe that the sum of our existence is pretty much made up of the interpersonal relationships we have with one another so we better make the most of it. I believe in trying to make things better. I also love a good grilled cheese sandwich. Ive been working in food service for many years and if love to open my own restaurant one day.
I'm really nerdy about a lot of things. Geeky about the rest and I'm also excellent at pet sitting bunny rabbits.

Or you are a kind soul with a bit of a bite looking to cause some minor mischief and perhaps change the course of humanity in the process. Either that or maybe you just like eating lobster rolls and drinking beer down by the water and roaming the city while talking about mindless trivial things.
