Not dainty, chock-full of fun. Takes life as it comes, but plans
all big-like. Love most everything, but bad tasting things.
Contextualist. Boo, fundamentalist. Live entertainment in all forms
is pretty important. Won't ever stop dreaming and won't ask others
to do so. Dated the sun and lusted after the moon. Lived everywhere
and got a piece of it in me. Pretty well-versed in culture and
could hold my own on convo of Fassbinder, wood-working, Atari 2600,
and the dignity of growing old.
I turn towards dive bars. Dig great food, but don't need to talk of
it incessantly. Love baseball, Jim Thompson, and honesty. Follow my
gut, trust my intellect, keep good company with good people and
like to re-invent myself when necessary.
I got a great family, a former dog, am happy with my own smile and
musical tastes. Hate conformity and extremists in any form. Quick
to respond, but usually on the mark. My mark. Just be yourself and
the rest will follow.
Don't care what you do unless you do. Traveling is essential and a
turnover in basketball. I don't want to judge people, i try not
too, but occasionally fail. I got me a well-earned belly, but not
out of control one.
Really, I like me, but not overly into me. Seeing what's down the

The six things I could never do without
A decent periodical, a stiff tea, a nice forgiving somebody,
guilt-free pleasure, my own ipod, and constant medical attention.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
if it all is what it all is.
On a typical Friday night I am
making out with strangers and asking their thoughts on favored
nation trade status. Or at a loud show of something.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
That we all really fail more than we succeed, which is cool. And
you have to get over yourself and own up to the good and bad. Look
so far ahead that you gotta squint.
You should message me if
I am your emergency contact. Or if you have stalked or intend to
stalk me. Or if you like spinach balls and have a good recipe for
