Better than vanilla.
Warm and friendly in an atomic kind of way.
More resilient than I realize.
I've traveled around more of the country than I can remember. After a certain point the different towns and cities all start to blur together. Growing up I was exposed to all kinds of people from all different backgrounds on a pretty consistent basis. I was constantly surrounded by different ideas and ways of living. Traveling as an adult my experiences left me both jaded and hopeful. It's an odd duality that I'm still trying to understand and resolve.
Losing track of time.
Sitting in comfortable silence.
Making more than I could possibly eat.
Sleepers, Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, Snatch, Lucky Number Sleven, Shawshank Redemption, Blazing Saddles, Chasing Amy, Grosse Point Blank, Hudson Hawk. I also seem to watch a lot of documentaries, I'd say 50% of the time it's just background.
Music is a little different. It's hard to define any band or song as a favorite. It's all contextual. Tool, Type O Negative, Black Label Society, Corrosion of Conformity, The Mountain Goats, Tom Waits, Flogging Molly, Chuck Berry, Johnny Cash, Bad Religion, Voltaire (obviously not the author) are just a few that have been important for one reason or another.
A sharp knife.
A towel, preferably with a corner soaked in nutrients.
Who I want to be now.
Different ways of thinking.
Strange or obvious things that amuse me to no end.
You have trouble with small talk.
You want to help me build something. Seriously. I need another pair of hands.
You keep checking my profile....make a decision.
You don't give a shit about match percentages.
