My self-summary
I lived overseas for 20 years.
JET Programme.
Peace Corps.
Jesuit Refugee Service.
Other stuff.


Following bliss.

Learning. Service. Travel. Thinking. Doing. Coffee. Drinks. Pens. Notebooks. Maps. Tickets. Packing bags.
What I’m doing with my life
Trying to make myself a better person and the world a better place. What else?
I’m really good at
Making a delicious, authentic spaghetti alla carbonara.

Coming up with ideas for novels.

Managing the Mets.

Getting lost and finding cool shit.

Pretending to understand loads of languages.

Supporting little shops in SEA that sell beer.

People tell me that I'm a really good cook. Although, I'm beginning to suspect that I'm just being manipulated by folks too lazy too cook for themselves. Shit. I smell something burning...
The first things people usually notice about me
Probably that I'm quiet and polite. Hell, I don't know!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I read books and magazines.

Some favorites: Love in the Time of Cholera. Hesse. Cormac McCarthy. Elegance of the Hedgehog (I have a crush on Muriel Burberry). Shantarum. Death in the Afternoon. The Power of Myth. Mimesies.

Is it possible to think about books more than actually reading books? I wonder if I don't do that sometimes. I juggle books, and I usually manage not to drop one of them. You know, on my foot.

I frequently skim books on language study.

I like Ken Burns, BBC documentaries, other documentaries and the Teaching Company.

Movies are nice.

I don't watch much TV. I do love NFL games. If Cops is on I often find myself pulled into the drama. Shut up.

I like music.
I listen to a lot of indie rock stuff. I know most of the lyrics to 80s hair band songs. I admit to having blasted Bon Jovi in my Camaro back in the day. Damn. I'm kinda thinking I should have saved this for the most private thing to admit question...

I like Thai food, and Chinese food. I like NY deli sandwiches.
I don't like cheese, but I love pizza.
Six things I could never do without
1) my bail bondsman
2) passport
3) dictionaries
4) coffee
5) spices
6) the emergency break

In that order. Exactly. Wait. I might require a little bit of flexibility with the emergency break at number 6.

Honorable mention goes to intuition.

While I got the floor, I'd just like to add that I could definitely do without irony; it can be so cruel.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Karma. Fate. Destiny. Which road I'll choose next.
Life's twists and turns through the dark wood.
On a typical Friday night I am
Delighting in random encounters.
Being charmed. Being charming.
And, trying to determine if my level of intoxication is appropriate to the situation.

Obviously, other nights of the week are typically different. For instance, I would never, ever wander on a Tuesday. I strictly avoid random encounters on Wednesdays, and especially on Sundays. I adhere to a "no charm" policy on Mondays. And, on days other than Friday, I am absolutely certain that my intoxication level is appropriate.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I think I saw a ghost. Twice. I'm an atheist. It's confusing.
You should message me if
If you need somebody to help you relocate to a non-extradition country immediately and you can pay for our tickets.

I really wish this question came first.
The two of us
