I'm a pretty avid golfer, and am interested in financial markets, music, cinema, and a host of other things. I read books and collect (and play) vinyl records. I vend stuff on eBay. I love antiques and collectibles and use many vintage "found objects" in my wall-mounted assemblages. Oh, and fantasy football--yeah, I'm one of THOSE guys. I'm looking to rent a furnished place (with a garage to store my stuff) at first, and if things work out, I'll buy something. I may or may not continue nursing. I have a couple of other entrepreneurial ideas.
I'm single, no kids, and would like to make some friends, and maybe meet a special one. It's been known to happen, even online.
The nickname "Atticus" comes from having played Atticus Finch in a production of "To Kill a Mockingbird" a few years ago in community theater in California. With a couple of drinks in me, and if you ask nicely, I might be persuaded to do the courtroom scene closing argument...my best Gregory Peck imitation..at least as much as I can remember. It's a a beautiful speech, but a long one--about 2 1/2 pages.
Anyway, that's it. Signing off, for now. But If any nice local women (a little kooky and eccentric is fine) want to show me around a bit well, I'd be much obliged. And I promise to behave myself. Really.
Thanks for looking at my profile. All comments, observations, reflections and encouragement appreciated!
I'm a decent golfer. Once upon a time I was an 8 handicap. Now I'm a 20. I can still hit the ball a long way. Keeping it in play is my only problem. I need to play morre.
I've always liked Tom Wolfe, John Updike, George Plimpton, John Feinstein, good sports books.
Movies-Scorcese--Goodfellas, The Departed, Casino, Raging Bull, etc.
Almost all Coen Brothers...many, many others.
Music-Currently listening to Radiohead, Morphine, Tom Waits, Elvis Costello, The Pogues, Richard Thompson, The Cure.
family and friends
good, fresh food
sex (OK...I said it)
Apropos of nothing, here are 2 nursing school ideas for possible band names..."Exudate" (might be good for a folk or bluegrass duo) and "Valsalva Maneuver" (thinking heavy metal on this one?)
