I know. Muppets. Of the Jim Henson kind, not the British stupid person version.
I'm Kermit - the forever put-upon, last sane man (or frog) in the room, soft and plush on the outside, forever being trampled by the Ms Piggies of my life, yet witty, insightful, and industrious, and the brains of the operation.
I'm Gonzo - the gopher/fixit guy in the group, with a treasure chest full of odds and ends of various indeterminate origin (but always useful!) and who's over on the likeable side of weird.
I'm Sam the Eagle - worried about where my country is going, who all these weirdos are, and (secretly) having the time of my life as a part of the whole thing.
I'm Beaker - experimenter par excellent, looking for new challenges daily, yet always aware of exactly how wrong things can go. But, hey, there's always another experiment tomorrow, even if this one almost blew up the building!
I'm Rowlf - kind, gregarious, and with a genuine sense of humor (unlike Fozzie, who's humor is, well, a failure). And someone who loves a party, though doesn't have to be the center of attention.
I'm even a bit Waldorf and Stadler - snarky, sarcastic, and the observer of goings on.
In short, I love people. I like performing. I like challenges, of the physical or mental sort. And I like to talk. About anything. Really.
Personally, I'm trying to regain my former Matt Biondi physique, after too many years of looking more like Kevin James. It's coming along gradually, thankfully...
Otherwise, I'm just considering my options - lots of possibilities in the near future, and it's starting to be that point where I'll have to make one of those major life-defining choices soon...
Parties and gatherings - throwing them and (especially) attending them is a highlight of my life. Not the massive rent-a-warehouse kind, but the smaller dozen or two kind. Which are more entertaining, anyway.
And, probably, my best talent is figuring stuff out. I like to tinker and think, and problems (usually) fascinate me, so I'm a great person to get involved in some kind of problem. Doesn't matter much what kind, as puzzles are fun, whether of the physical, intellectual, moral, metaphysical, or social kind. I'm not Gregory House, though.
It's actually easier to list those things I'm not terribly fond of, than to talk about the stuff I find interesting, so here's the list of my Not-Going-To-Read/Watch/etc.
Torture Porn movies/manga (e.g. Saw, Hostel, or any of the Tentacle Demon mangas)
Twilight, 50 Shades of Grey, and other equally insipid literature trying to pass itself off as highbrow or as a worthy experience.
Ballet - I appreciate the effort and art that it represents, can't stand to watch it, as it bores me to death. Same goes for most modern dance. But I like Opera, and Circ de Soleil are fun.
Unfortunately, I'm pretty much of a fan of all types of food. Doesn't help my goal of reducing my waistline.
New things to learn about.
Loungewear. I love my fuzzy slippers and pants.
The (possible) illusion that I matter in this world.
My Towel. You never know when a Vogon Constructor Fleet will be demolishing your homeworld to put in a galactic hyperspace bypass, so best be prepared.
Alternately, out to dinner with a couple of friends, for a long evening of food, conversation, and a bit of snarky people-watching.
Or, maybe, just maybe, if you think 2+2 *should* equal 4, but there might be somewhere that it doesn't, always.
