I have recently moved back into the Twin Cities following a series of short-lived, but quite interesting jobs scattered between Arizona, Aitkin, and the North Shore. I generally like the area, good food, good bars, good people.
I have an ecology degree from the UofM, and have been referred to as a hippie, commie, and liberal by a variety of friends and not so friendlies. I take no offense to any of these really, and suspect that I may be further down the rabbit hole of environmental/liberal thought than any of these.

I am kinetic, inquisitive, and tactile
I take a perverse pleasure in making people guess my age. They almost always fail. We're talking 99.9% of the time, I think only 1 person has got it right in the last 5 years. Anyone reading this has an unfair advantage however. Most likely the poor guessing has to do with me being bald, it's been that way since I was 18, and I honestly don't know how "hiding" it by shaving my head does me any good outside of a darwinian reproduction sense. And while I like nookie as much as the next guy (or girl for that matter), I do not like to let the persuit of sex dominate my life.
I am generally quite difficult to catch without a smile, unless I am trying to focus a crappy camera phone.
I have quite the list depending on the genre. I've decided to eliminate the genre headings and just list the books though. Language Older Than Words, Sex, Economy, Freedom, and Community, Wheel of Time, the Mars series, Flatland, [The Things They Carried]], while I don't like some of Heinlein's philosophies; Stranger in a Strange Land is a truly amazing book, Botany of Desire, The Monkeywrench Gang
B) Dogma for a laugh, Time Bandits too. The Muppet Movie is an all time classic, and The Dark Crystal should never be forgotten. V for Vendetta! Clerks II was good. The comic book geek in me tries to see all the Marvel movies.
3) I just got a good amount of bluegrass, folk, and polyrhythmic music from a co-worker. I'm not familiar enough with everything he gave me to choose favorites, but I have had some darn good music flowing from my speakers lately.
Druken Irish Rock is good music.
Angry music tops are The Dropkick Murpheys, The Reverend Horton Heat, Floggin Molly.
Downer music favorites are Lucinda Williams, REM, Low, Iron and Wine, Leonard Cohen, Counting Crows, Greg Brown.
Indie favorites are The New Pornographers, Neko Case, Ani DiFranco, The Decemberists, Metric, Broken Social Scene, Matt Bingen, Accident Clearinghouse, Old Crow Medicine Show, Splashdown.
General alternative favorites are, Harvey Danger (man that free album is awesome), REM, The Violent Femmes, Mike Doughty, Soul Coughing, Counting Crows, Ben Folds (sometimes when I listen closely to the lyrics I wonder why, but then I just let the sound overwhelm me), Cracker.
All time favorites would be REM, Violent Femmes, Johnny Cash, Cracker. I can't believe I forgot The Magnetic Fields
That Other One) Bread, I love to eat it, I love to bake it, I just really like it. Atkins can blow me from the grave as far as I'm concerned, give me my fresh loaf of Cardamom Orange. I also am getting into an experimental mood, mainly involved with taking very good quality ingredients (organic, local, etc.) and cookbooks and seeing what happens. I am rather proud of my Egg Nog, although I don't know if it would taste as good in the summer. Tamales are wonderful, and fun to make!
Friends, music, stars, conversations about silly things that might not really be silly, going outside and moving, and human interaction.
Lately I've been delegating thoughts towards vermiculture and keeping my worms alive, if anyone can help me out there I'd apprciate it.
How cool wikipedia is.
I eat berries from the vine, a few of which are possibly on a "bad" list somewhere. Luckily there are very few berries in the wilds of Minnesota that will kill you, and I know those ones.
I don't like window blinds or door locks, but use them for other people's comfort.
You've noticed that I change what I write here fairly often. (If I haven't changed this for awhile should I erase this line? Or would that constitute changing?)
You are suspect of the veracity of what people keep telling you succesful is.
You want or have some damn good bread formulae, or scones, or various other flour bearing food recipes.
You have always wanted to learn a card game.
You're looking for a conversation or three. The fourth might take some extra work.
