I am Independent, Compassionate, and Sensitive
screwing in light bulbs
yelling "FISH ON"
making peanut butter and jelly sandwiches
finding, analyzing and (sometimes) fixing problems
relaxing in a hot tub
helping friends out when I can
plinking with my .22 pistol
cuddling AND snuggling
driving in deep snow
striking up conversations with complete strangers
tromping through the woods somewheres
keeping a 4/4 beat
carrying in groceries
passing out in a storm on a bush plane from motion sickness
electrical work of many kinds
listing silly things I think I'm good at...
I actually like most people and enjoy learning about their life experiences.
UPDATE : Yes I took the nerd-geek-dork test and got PURE NERD... so I guess it is conclusive according to some software crunching away in the core of the OKcupid brain.
Movies are great - too numerous to mention. Don't watch slasher flicks or soap operas/reality shows. >Just saw Slumdog Millionaire and it was great!
I love music- my interests are mostly older rock and roll I guess, and I have had some great music friends help me to broaden my limits and enjoy diverse music such as Camel, Hot Rize, Tommy Bolin, Scott Moulton, and Liquid Mind, to name just a few. There are some great newer artists out there too. I have very broad music and audio tastes. I listened to the Firesign Theatre and old radio mystery when I was a kid, (on records) and was in marching band in high school and marched in the 1974 Macy's Thanksgiving day parade in New York City playing my snare drum and a marching cadence.. for miles -
I saw the Drive-by Truckers in Spokane last year, I enjoy good live music. I am always learning something and right now, new metal patterns on my drums for a friends music.
Food is a gift and being able to eat fresh food is the best gift. We are very lucky to be able to have the variety and selection of so many kinds of food. Many billions of people around the world are so much less fortunate, it is tragic to see food wasted. Being able to share a meal with friends, however meager the meal, is always better than a feast alone I think. I enjoy most all food, I have eaten macrobiotic, vegan, freeze-dried, college scroungehound, and my western carnivore experience has recently led me to a pile of moose steak and some moose snout at an Alaskan potlatch, which were both excellent by the way. I plan on growing some beans, peas, squash, and assorted greens in my garden this summer. I do not like caviar, hot peppers, or food with lots of dyes, difficult-to-pronounce ingredients, and over-processed crap. I rarely break down and eat junk food but usually feel ill afterwards and pay for it somehow... It all depends what it is.
Sunshine - The sun is my friend and gives me energy
Love - Learning it may be the only reason I am here
Health - Without a healthy life - all else is on hold
Relationships - Family, friends, others help teach me who I am
Communication - Conversing, sharing, touch with feeling, music
Affection - I am a lover and like to give and receive
- but usually -
Being healthy and happy.
Finding work to sustain myself and keep busy and productive.
Helping friends and others including my aging parents.
The future and what it may hold...
Keeping a positive outlook on life, and laughing when I can.
In the summer the sun is out so long, (9:30-9:45), I usually play till dark, so I might be out in or on the water or riding the bike or hiking to a great spot to watch the sunset -but the winter is a different story, like out chopping wood in the dark at 4pm, snow-blowing, shoveling, y'know the drill if you live in the area...hehe
( How many people go straight to this question hoping to find something weird or kinky? hehehehe uh-huh, sure you didn't )
Talk about weird - Something else you may (or may not) want to know about me - One day long ago I made the call that put a man in jail for horribly abusing his young daughter... and that's all I gotta say about that.
