So OKC wants me to expand my profile out to 1000 words. I have to believe I'm close, but I think they need to put a word counter up here too. My hovercraft is full of eels.
I am cognitive, warm, and have a pulse
So, I am out to make up for a bit of lost time in both my personal and professional life. I am a very passionate person and want to apply that value in very positive ways through empathy and reciprocity.
**The following has been added to fill out OKC request for 1000 words**. I'm not trying to bore you with the rest of this post. I thought I had said all I wanted to say before this edit. OKC wants me to expand out to one thousand words to be 95% complete. Good to know that all I have to do is put down some meaningless blather and I'll be a B+. The problem with this system is, once you achieve 100%, you need not work to improve. I would have no problem with modifying my profile as I grow, as I evolve, as I mature, but I don't think I should bore people with rants or BS to fill out some requirement arbitrarily. It's hard enough to keep someones attention to read your profile when they actually want to get to the pictures immediately anyway.I feel like such a word slut.
**UPDATE** I have received many email notifications the the name of this sport is "Pig Wrasslin'." I have, unfortunately just ruined one of the best icebreakers I have ever programmed in to a profile. No matter, you all just want to look at the pics anyway to see if there is any reason to go forward. That being said, I have recently changed my profile pic so you might recognize me if you are at a music venue (a cool music venue) and you see me doing some photos. If you do, please stop me and say hi. One can never have enough friends.
**added to expand profile**
Too many times have I experienced a comment about how I have worded something. Either it is criticized for being too "high brow" or torn down because the other believes they are a much better wordsmith. I surrender to both. I word things the way I do to bring about a concept of what I need to express in as few of words as possible. If the meaning escapes you, my apologies. It is just a dating site after all. If my grammar offends you, please go pound sand in your ass. Minimalistic writing should be expected on these sites. I certainly am ruining the impression that I am a very good listener by writing these addendum.
**Geez this idiot is long winded**
I did leave out the element of music. I have no time for anyone who specifically has a focus on specific genre. I get my music fix by listing to original music. Diamond in the rough, many times, and a work in progress at the least. I do photography for the local original music scene. Contact me and I will give you addresses to see some of my photos. I'm not as interested in you seeing my photos for your approval as I am you seeing the passion the artists are putting in to their performance. That is why I do everything in ambient light with no flash!!! If you are an artist and you read this profile, no posing!!! I want candid shots of what you do. Likewise to the venue, if your lighting sucks, so will the pics. Things don't improve without reasons. I'm simply providing a reason.
I could go on for the balance of this 1000 word expansion about ham salad. It's the perfect food. It is already preserved through the process of making a ham and gives a lot of margin or creativity. I'm a fan of chicken salad too and a German buddy of mine made some fleisch salata, but ham salad is the most stable. Turkey salad is a possibility but requires smoking to be interesting enough to make a salad out of it. Beef has many incarnations but evolved into "shit on a shingle" which I kind of enjoy too. Shrimp salad is great but requires a knowledge of shrimp to make it right. Let's face it, I'm in Indiana where the shrimp are small and frozen. I've had a lobster salad before that I considered a waste of lobster, but some other fish might have serve the dish better. I love fried bologna. I think it might be a great salad maker too. Fried bologna stands on it's own as a great sandwich, if done correctly, and seems redundant to continue on with the process of making a meat salad out of it.
Braunschweiger (sp?) is a guilty pleasure of mine as well. I have met so many people who love it and have a special way to make their sandwich. Mine is with swiss cheese and a good mustard. Best if German mustard but Dijon will do. Coarse ground Dijon is better, but nothing like the mustard I make from scratch. Mine is more like Wasabi and, yes, I'm a Sushi hound too. I expect Shashimi grade and you should too. If you are still reading this stuff, congratulations! You are obviously either really interested or you do strange things to farm animals.
**Blah BLah Blah**
I spend more time thinking about why I'm thinking about things that I think about. I would love to give you the inner workings of ME, but I don't think you should have the unfair advantage since most of you will not have filled out your profile as in depth as I did before I had the goal of expansion to 1000 words. Suffice it to say, I constantly replay what I have said in my mind to figure out if what I had said could have been taken the wrong way. This is mostly done after the fact of being said, but I do it to see if I have anything to clarify later (I'm a creature of conscience).
