I have dropped anchor here and am quite thoroughly taken with San Francisco. I acquired 2 (second hand) cats in New York and have every intent of making myself part of the furniture.
I enjoy travel and have been to many many places not articulated above for short stints/trips/business.
I run, boulder, traipse, bike, snow board and use a motorbike as my primary means of transportation.
spouting bullshit (like a teapot)
tearing the seams out of my pants (kinetic maelstrom)
seducing animals (Like a ballsy snow white)
My roiling undercurrent of physical energy

This is South African and rocks my world: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nAGskbHI2Ws
The Flaming Lips' "Do you realize" hits me more than it probably should:
This displaces me:
time to reflect
deep off-kilter conversation
Exploring the city
Relaxing inside with someone stimulating
