Oh yes, I'm moving into a house I bought a few years ago to fix it up and hopefully sell it. Want to buy a house? Oh, and I'm from Sacramento, so most of my friends and family live there. And I'm looking forward to skiing more than three days a year.
I'm not changing the world in my job, so let's get that out of the way right now! I work for a large, blue-and-white-placarded utility company that's been in the news a lot lately. No, it's not my department! I'm a substation inspector (electrician by trade), which is kind of like a cross between a warehouse clerk and a high school vice principal. It's not a source of a lot of artistic fulfillment or anything, but it keeps the lights on. Whaaaaa!
I take my interests elsewhere... Like:
Black and white film photography (and darkroom)
Chasing my niece and nephew around
Spending time with old friends
A little mountain biking, hiking and river swimmin'
Bourbon sippin' and record listening'
(Why do I hear a banjo playing?)
So... who are you? Really, I don't know yet! It would be nice if you were witty; self-contained,; acerbic; sincere without being too earnest (please don't write me sonnets on the second date!); somewhat in shape; into cool music but still capable of camping it up with a big, dumb old Billy Joel CD.
Yeah, that kind of thing.
OK, here are a few random things:
Creedence; The Gourds; Robert Earl Keen; Drive-by truckers; What's the Matter With Kansas; Goodfellas; Jaws; Son Volt; The God Delusion; Holding Fast the Inner Lines (WW1 tome); The Clash; Elvis Costello; old delta blues guys whose names start with "Blind"; old Cold War Kids; Bob Dylan; The Beatles; Rosamede; Brian Eno; Salon; Tom Waits; Pliny the Elder; old Stones; Heartless Bastards; Old 97s; old Joni Mitchell; Tricky; almost anything played on the turntable... except maybe for Mac Davis and the Barbara Streisand Superman album. Not those.
Of course tastes are funny things. They don't seem to be very reliable indicators of how we'll get along. Rapport, wit and chemistry are elusive things.
********UPDATE: I live in that house and city now. Not so smug now!
