I am a work in progress and sometimes progress is slow. There are
many layers to be peeled back like an onion. And similarly one or
both of us will likely end up crying from it. At least I know I
will. I just don't have your strength.
I try to follow the three basic tenants laid out by the great
philosopher Tsung Tzu:
1. Each day leads to another. As surely as the sun will set on one
day or opportunity it will surely rise again on the next.
2. Compassion is a sign of great strength. It takes great strength
to carry yourself and lift up another as well. To laugh at or look
down on compassion is to demonstrate vanity, one of mans greatest
3. B!tches be crazy
What I’m doing with my life
Running a business, which usually has me trying to come up with
reasons not to put my head in an oven, Plath style. Attempting to
be a good friend, family member, and overall upstanding member of
society. Occasionally falling short on all three I'm sure.
I’m really good at
Art. Or at least the art of answering questions on OkCupid. Other
art I'm probably not very good at. Or was that just an example of
the art of lowering expectations?....
The first things people usually notice about me
I saw a girl on here that jokingly answered this with "my third
arm". Seems inappropriate when I say that though...plus if they
happen to be someone into arms my third arm would likely be at
least the third thing they noticed about me. I possess all of the
standard equpment necessary to be considered human. In many ways I
may seem like I'm lower on the evolutionary chart but at least
posture wise I'm a fully realized person. So for those of you who
value such things, I'm here.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Good question....tv...24, the office, parks and rec, the fall on
Netflix, breaking bad, recently started getting into the walking
dead, the newsroom, sons of anarchy, also a big food network
Music..pretty diverse array but I will say I prefer people who can
actually play instruments. On my playlist right now...Dave Matthews
band, Mumford and sons, pearl jam, john mayer, coldplay, ray
Charles, van Morrison, Eric Clapton, bb king, Gavin degraw, Jonny
lang, ray lamontagne, the band, Steve winwood, audioslave, the
avett brothers, daft punk, gov't mule, passenger, and, at the the
time that I'm writing this, tab Benoit.
Food...all kinds. I go to a lot of different restaurants,
frequently consult Baltimore magazine etc to find new places and
probably spend far too much money on this hobby!
The six things I could never do without
Easy. Fingers. Can you imagine trying to go through life with four
fingers? Keep in mind thats four fingers total. Not sure how it
breaks down though, two fingers on each hand, one on one hand and
three on the other, etc. Might not affect your bowling but
otherwise it would be a challenge. And is there such a thing as a
four fingered fist fight? Very depressing. Those are some tiny
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Answers to questions about what I'm thinking about. Also, creative
ways to avoid discussing what I spend my time thinking about
On a typical Friday night I am
Could be getting arrested, could be arresting someone else. Could
just be a nice relaxing evening watching a movie through someones
bedroom window. Could practice my breaking and entering or, as I
call it, "entering". I don't break anything. Could be polishing my
collection of womens shoes. Could be in my dark room developing
surveillance photos. Could be shoplifting. Could be plotting. Could
be casing. Could be conspiring. Could be fighting off the demons.
Could be spending it with you.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I killed a man in 1972...I'm far too private to admit anything else
You should message me if
Nice try. I'm not gonna try to talk you into it. If you wanna
message me then message me! If you aren't sure if you want to
message me then you probably should. A journey of a thousand miles
begins with a single step. Except for me. I won't be walking that.
I'll be flying or at the very least driving. So if you think you're
the type of person that could convince me to walk a thousand miles
you should definitely go ahead and message me. I'm already curious
to talk to you. Please know that I'm fully aware I look terrible in
my pictures. I hate pictures of myself but they're obviously a
necessary evil on here. However, I promise I look much better in
