I'm the sort of person that reads everything I can find on a topic I'm interested in until I have exhausted it or run into some sort of funding wall. Right now, virtue and how to build a systematic approach to being a good person.
I like barefoot running, whip cracking, Ben Franklin, regulation and law, and pretty much any vaguely complicated system.
Two years ago, I started a business (registering with the state and everything) - BunnyRope.com - and have been vending around town. It's the confluence of so many things I enjoy - shibari, chemistry, and the mindfulness that comes from the focus. Braiding eye loops to make hojojutsu bundles or building the dye bath is soothing.
I'm a minimalist at heart. I've pared my closet down to almost nothing but black button ups, jeans, gym clothes and fancy bow ties. Though this year I've moved on from toe shoes (I am SICK TO CHILLY DEATH of cold toes in winter) and am toying with how little details like nice shoes or watches will affect: my confidence, interactions with people, and such.
Removing decisions in a day means I have more capacity for useful choices: Like cake or death.
This doesn't mean I'm 100% logical (if only...) but cooler heads eventually prevail.
Can you tell I'm an INTJ?

The poetry of Frank O'Hara, Bukowski, Basho, Bei Dao, Ash, TS Eliot.
I absolutely adore TS Eliot. I read The Lovesong of J. Alfred Prufrock regularly. The wasteland is phenomenal. I also do a great Eliot impression.
James Joyce too. I want to be him when I grow up, even with his passions and vices. Have you read his letters to his wife?

Food: I'll try anything but the pig will always be my first love. Eggs, broccoli, avocado, clever cheeseburgers,brussels sprouts, kale and the likker which is the remaining cooking liquid after cooking the kale, collards greens or turnip greens, which I tried for the first time after seeing a Good Eats episode that suggested it (it is delicious), chicken salad... oh, chicken salad. I have an incredible recipe for chicken salad.
Etc. Void where prohibited.
My current hobby
Why did HHS use that wording in the regulation?
More words or fewer?
You like coffee or cats or goofy guys with mustaches in their wallets. You can string subjects, predicates and various lingual accoutrement together and like to get to know a guy a touch before you have a date.
I used to keep the mustache in my pocket but washed it. Twice.
