My self-summary
Able baker, casual, dedicated, earnest, fairly gracious, honest. Idiosyncratic. Just kinky (enough), loving, manly, never-endingly optimistic playmate; questioning results sent (by) the universe, vital wealth (advisor), (e)xciting, young (enough), zany--well, not truly zany, but can't think of what might describe me that starts with "z"...maybe you'll think of something.
