My self-summary
Let's start from the beginning. I believe the first memory I have of myself was from the day my family moved from our old house. I was three. I wore hiked up tube socks with double green stripes, had chapped lips, white blonde hair, a stutter, and wanted a banana. I was awesome.

I eventually learned about Carmex, lost the stutter, and ate the banana. My hair turned brown. I don't own those socks anymore but wish I did. I sleep in a racecar. Do you?

I want to play in a world of pure imagination. I want to revel in novelty, dreamscapes, and possibility. I wish never to take for granted the one life I've got. I wish to only exist within a circle of those who matter to me and never sweat that which dost not need to be sweated-ed-ed.

I love ranch dressing. And I love you.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm an Ops Services director for a winery/restaurant and I love it very much. I work weird hours and it's often hard to meet people. I live in an old church in the Ukrainian Village and have a twenty foot stained glass window in my living room (I was told that that was important to mention as some might find that weird...I find it wonderful so to those that may say that, I say eat my shorts). I eat a lot (but do not eat shorts). I see a movie, an exhibit of some sort, or a live show on every single day off I have. I spend as much time as possible with my nieces and nephews. They are the coolest people I know.

I love bacon and sour cream. Separate or together.
I’m really good at
laughing. Drumming and sorta good on guitar. I'm phenomenal at drumming on random objects with my hands. The best you've ever seen in fact. I love to listen and to learn. My old man always told me that he never learned anything while talking. I like that. I enjoy doing nice things for people. Old women find me charming. I find them charming, too. I think big picture a lot and can easily get wrapped up in wonderment about how everything is and has come to be. I'm probably an idealist in many ways but have spent a lot of time trying to understand the importance of perspective. I might think it's the single most important word ever.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I say"hi" to people every time I see them and not just when I first see them. Example: You walk past me.I say "hi". I pass you again two minutes later because we're still in the same place. I say "hi" again. This is if I know you most of the time. To make a short story long,I like to say "hi" to people if I make eye contact with them. Hahaha I have no idea what I'm talking about...oh look! you're an empty essay. I shall fill you out

Six things I could never do without
1) Music
5) Family
2) Rhythm
4) Humor
3) Skip-It
6) Memories
6B) Radiolab - I was recently thinking about how disappointed I would be if Radiolab were to ever go off of the air. Would life go on? Yes, but it just wouldn't be the same. It's two major highlights in each month and has taught me so much and even more-so made me appreciate things about which I'd previously known so little. That makes me happy. Which means I now must add...
7) Happiness
8) Boom shakalaka
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Everything. Haha I poooossibly think too much. Friends laugh at me because I ask so many questions. As if I get my information in the same way a four year old might. I love music more than anything in the whole wide world. I'm always always always listening to or seeing some form of it. There is something for every mood I'm capable of having. I want someone who understands what that's about. If music makes you happier than anything else in the whole wide world, then I want to enjoy that with you. I have an obsession with Radiohead. I find movies to be the other greatest distraction ever. I won't pretend to be overly manly. I love cuddling, companionship, passion, romanticism, and intimacy. Throw sigur ros, a blanket, and a thunderstorm in there and I might just shit. I like to play with hair and tickle backs. and I like those things done to me. I'm no slut. I just know what I like. I like nice people. I like warm and fuzzy. I do not cry but do get verclempt at most extreme makeover home edition. I liked playing "SPUD" as a kid. Do you know it?
On a typical Friday night I am
Working until about 7. Then seeing a movie usually.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I never learned how to play a jew's harp. And I've always told my mom that her meatloaf is better than it really is.

You're interesting, an intellectual, love to laugh, have a cute smile, like affection, like to read, have a unicorn, enjoy eating, want to relax, find the not main points of things as interesting as the obvious parts, have or would consider having a streak of metallic blue in your hair. Streak not necessary.
