My self-summary
Hello. I'm a former butcher and cook from Indianapolis. Now back in school for language studin'. I'm still easily bribed with food.

I dragged my books and a bookcase half-way across the country.

I took Kurt Vonnegut's advice to be kind and so far, the results has been ok. When strangers on the street ask me for directions, I nod and pretend to understand. I then point them toward a random direction, to inspire them with confidence. They will find their Destination.

I'm Deaf. This leads to me being a visual and tactile person, with different sensory inputs such as 180 degree peripheral vision and feeling sounds through my feet. I also communicate via visual means, usually Sign Language, Written English, or gestures.

I look masculine, scruff and all. But I'm not concerned about keeping my interests and behavior masculine. I mean I do throw around logs, cut a lot of meats, and drink beers with bourbon. But I also bake cookies and giggle.
What I’m doing with my life
Moving from delicious foods to delicious languages.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Recent things that I've consumed:
Fargo
The Ignorant Schoolmaster

The Spirit Catches You and You Fall Down (Medical Anthropology)
Civilwarland in Bad Decline (short stories)

etc.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Sometimes my mind wanders over those topics:
Deaf Studies, Information and Knowledge, comics, nature, cultures, cooking, communication, language, and cultural barriers, books, TV shows, food, languages, delicious salads, history of Indianapolis, history of I-65, bikes, stuff that I don't know, USA and World news, where food comes from, anthropology, medical anthropology, urban planning, linguistics, metaphors.
On a typical Friday night I am
Making delicious salads.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
When I was a boy, I had an invisible friend that I argued with.

And I blow my nose loudly.
