My self-summary
I want the angel
That never chooses
And don't come running back every time she loses
Jim Carroll

Currently living in Mexico and happy to be out of the states and the cold.

Randomly…..Eclectic, energetic, sleepy, sometimes shy, sometimes extrovert, curious, out-of-the-mainstream, painfully idealistic, harshly cynical, a Romantic with a capital R, a little of this and a little of that but definitely not mellow.

I find it absolutely fascinating that so many men describe themselves as attractive when women rarely mention this in their profiles. I'm trying to decide what exactly that says about the people who mention it... and those that don't.

I laugh at inappropriate moments... um... often.
My favorite letter is S
I spell better in foreign languages
I like butter on my pop tarts.

I have a thing for "good eyes" and great kissers. People with good/interesting/quirky senses of humor who are curious or creative (though not necessarily via an art form), engaged in life and willing and interested in learning, growing and expanding are all types that interest me. I'm often found with people younger than myself... maybe because they are still growing or maybe because I'm immature.. I'd rather think the former.
My mom always says my guys are too thin. Mom.. put down the crack pipe please. We like what we like.

I weld bits of metal together. Other people call it art and I call it stuff. I don't consider myself an artist but I love the doing.. and often the outcome.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm riding the idea that empty is the new full.
Spending more time with metal.
Dancing whenever I can.
Trying to stop asking WHY all the damned time.
I’m really good at
Conversing, understanding, empathizing, being in water, Fixing things, wooing, enjoying an excellent margeaux.
The first things people usually notice about me
Probably my hair if I haven't been welding. My eyes which change color depending on my mood. My dry sense of humor which often confuses them.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: The Invisible Man - Ellison, The Greater Trumps- Williams, The Boat Who Wouldn't Float - Mowat, The Prince - Machiavelli, Frankenstein, Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, anything by Jim Carroll, and a whole lot of trash.

Movies: I love movies. Truly Madly Deeply, Diva, Casablanca, The Girl Who Played with Fire et al, Hate, Say Anything, The Harder They Fall, Wings of Desire, Cane Toad, Run Lola Run, The Last Wave, Bliss (1985), Marathon Man, Dr. Strangelove, Repo Man, The Unbelievable Truth.

Randomly... Prince, Fiona Apple, Nick Lowe, Elvis Costello, Jesus and Mary Chain, 4Tet, Aretha, Massive Attack, Beastie Boys, Bach and Pillip Glass for a start. I go to live shows as often as possible and am a huge funk fan. Recent shows, Prince, George Clinton and P-funk, Deep Banana Blackout, Cheap Trick, The Golden Palominos, Raul Malo, Taj Majal, Billy Bragg, Los Lobos and Adrien Belew. I used to have a radio show. I wish I played bass. Chick bass players are so hot.

Food – love it.. go food!
The six things I could never do without
Friends, Water (particularly the ocean), the sun, dancing, books, good food.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Yes
On a typical Friday night I am
melting metal or out somewhere, hopefully dancing/ listening to live music
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I might have a tendency towards over-sharing.
You should message me if
you're curious.
you want to meet in the middle of a bridge somewhere to drink a bottle of wine (when it's warm please)
You simply can't help yourself
I usually reply.
