ok first off if a particular section on my profile does not start off with a date then it is more than 5 years old. i've gone through a lot of bullshit since then and my views of things have changed a great deal. i no longer full endorse the views of old bob. i would disown him but unfortunatly i'm stuck with the asshole. and really deep down he meant well if a bit misguided.
i mention this because frankly i don't intend to muck about much with my profile anyway.
if you really want to know more about me then i suggest you go through my questions. in fact i think OKC would be better if it were just pictures of people and answering the questions and letting their shiney personalities come through with their explanations.
it's more entertaining and a better conversation starter.
OKC isn't really the place to really get a good look at the kind of guy i am. i'm on facebook searchable under the same name as here. just spell it out as four seperate words.
also how you react and respond to my name tells me more about you and how you think than it probably tells you about me. if your curious to know how that is just ask.
but if you want a simplified summary it is this
a true sign scorpio following the path of the fool and embracing the trickster.
like right now, right now? well i'm chilling out in Naples Floor-eh-duh for the time being.
but right now i'm really in a new chapter in my life which started back on 5/18/15. that's when i decided to leave corpus christi texas and go back to hometown of salem, ill-uh-noise?. it was the thing to do. i went to go see an old highschool friend of mine who's had stage four cancer since 2012. i thought, if you want to see your friend you better go do it cause you can't count on him being there next year. in fact i found out when i got there that he was close to going that january.
plus it gave me something to do. i was getting restless being in one spot and getting kind of bored with life. i needed some adventure and excitement and to do something i haven't done before.
so i sat down looked at a map plotted a course following along highways, not the interstate, and started walking. then along the way if someone saw me, stopped and offered me a ride i took it. i didn't hitchhike or ask for rides. it was up to people to decide if they would stop or not otherwise i walked. there were a number of days in which all i did was walk and get no further than 20 miles down the road.
it took me 19 days to cover 1085 miles to get to where i was going. it was the greatest most fun and awesome thing i've done in my life. i saw a lot of different things meet a lot of really cool, nice people.
i spent 13 days in salem then went to st. charles, mo. spent about 3 weeks there visiting my ex. then i went to indianapolis, in spent two weeks there. partly to go see an uncle of mine and partly to go to Gen Con to meet back up with my friend from salem and another highschool buddy that was coming up from atlanta.
then i left indy and started traveling south. the original plan was to go to key west and spend the winter there. but when i got to perry, fl i changed my mind and decided to stop of in fort myers for awhile to take break. didn't like fort myers so jumped down to naples. don't know how long i'll stick around here because i'm getting restless again.
right now i'm planning on just bouncing around south floor-eh-duh till march before going adventuring back north again. i've been told about a rainbow gathering in ocala at the end of january beginning of feburary that i plan on checking out.
again facebook is the better place to catch me and see just what the fuck i'm up to. i like to write about where i scamper off to next.
um, i think surviving and getting from one place to another are at the top of the list. finding new and interesting things to do. going with the flow of things. enjoying random encounters with people for however long they last.
yeah i'm good at those things at least.
there's others too.
oh and that i'm weird.
i like to think that i'm at least attractive as far as weird creepy guys go.
As for movies, I'm a really big movie guy. It really depends on my mood at the moment as to what I'll watch and enjoy. I really enjoy CGI, VFX, and animation so there are times where I'll watch a movie solely for the eye candy. I've become somewhat jaded to most of what Hollywood puts out these days. Finding that going to the Redbox is a more enjoyable experience and I don't feel like I've just wasted money. However the one thing that gets me out to the theater without fail is when Pixar comes out with a new movie. The only exception was when I went out to see "Tron: Legacy". Like I said sometimes I just like the pretty eye candy.
Music, now this is a bit tougher for me. I do like and enjoy music I'm just not super into it. I'm weird like that. I tend to need the audio along with the visual. That said, my two favorite bands are They Might Be Giants and My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult. Though I've been getting into Benny Benassi and Daft Punk a bit. Mostly for the music videos but I enjoy the music as well. I'm very eclectic when it comes to my tastes. From classical to lounge to alternative to industrial to classic rock to 80's to country (but only if you don't consider Johnny Cash a genera all to himself) to some rap. Basicly if it's fun, quirky, upbeat or angry and aggressive I'll most likely be into it.
Ok I'm just a wee bit peeved with things. After answering like a bazillion of those stupid question thingies I took a gander at my "personality" stats and it comes to find out that I'm ranked as being less well read. Not just a little, no they make it look as if I'm illiterate. So here is my big flying fuck you too at the Ok Cupid personality assessment bot.

Other than the works by Prachett and Wilson, everything else is on my e-book reader and what I've read within the last year. But that's not everything.
So yeah, Fuck you Cupid bot if I'm not well read, asshole.
Oh, my most favoritest movies and shows.
The Venture Brothers
I bet you can't guess why.
I also think that Dr. Girlfriend is super fucking hot and I spend my nights awake and alone wondering if I'll ever find a woman who is just as good or better than her.
i tell myself as long as you have your rain poncho you'll be doing alright. it's a good military surplus job given to me by a vet. it's bailed me out in a number of different ways. i could survive without it but i'd rather keep it around. so that's one.
my hammock it's nice to have
and my sleeping bag it's good to.
good company, conversation and a great playmate.
a good adventure.
that's seven i know but since the previous one is unlikely to happen that last will do.
i get a bit jaded and cynical about life at times especially with these online things.
Life, the universe and everything.
after that there's not much left
except for the thing nesting in my belly button.
i think about that too.
Eh, what? It's friday? What month is it? I have a really really bad sense of time. The only reason I can tell a.m. from p.m. is that big ball of light seems to appear at fairly regular and consistent intervals. It's kind of handy to have around.
Other than that, I'm usually either clueless or just not that concerned with the time, day or date. Unless I have plans or there is something I'm suppose to be doing somewhere and I can't just ignore it or put it off till later when I'm in the mood or bored.
I'm pretty good with seasons, if that counts for anything.
you know i'm trying to think of a private thing that i'm willing to admit. i don't think i really have any. i don't have what you'd call a dirty little sercret or a guilty pleasure kind of thing.
i'm pretty open and upfront with who i am and what i'm about.
so i really don't know how to go about answering that question. there's not much private about me. i readily own up to my bullshit when called on it and admit that i'm wrong when it's explained and pointed out to me as to why it's a problem for the other person.
i guess you can say that i have no shame in who and what i am as a human being for good or bad.
