I'm over 40 and have been a type 1 diabetic since I was 11 years old.
In the past I have been a rocker type wearing British flag t-shirts and parachute pants (teens). I've also been an alternative type wearing plaids and jeans and listening to Pear Jam and Alice in Chains (my early 20's). I was an uber goth pagan and druid during my mid 20's to early 30's wearing all black velvet, leather, vinyl and lace, dyed black hair and makeup, going to night clubs 3 nights a week and drum circles and "spirit gatherings" when I could find them. I toned it down during my mid to late 30's and now I'm an amalgamation of all my previous selves.
I no longer have a stated religious affiliation. I find it interesting to study many different kinds of religion and I do believe in some kind of "god", I just don't yet know him/her/it well enough to make any claims.
I still listen to all my old school music, and rarely listen to new music. I stick to 70's Disco, 80's New Wave, R&B, Punk, Goth and Pop, plus a smattering of the 90's Goth, Industrial, Techo and Alternative stuff I heard so much during my clubbing years.
I love to dance, something I picked up during my club going years, and I am fairly good at it. When I met and was dating my wife she introduced me to several other kinds of dance and I can say I'm fairly good at OR can at least get by at Irish Dance, Scottish Dance, English Country Dance, Baroque Era Dance, Waltzing, Latin Ballroom, and several Folk Dances. Lately though I've been having knee problems and it's been hindering my ability to dance more than a little in one night.
My wife and I just bought our first home in the summer of 2009. We moved in on the same weekend I had angioplasty and two stents put into one of my cardiac arteries. I'm doing fine, the surgery went well and has worked just fine to improve my heart health.
I ride a scooter to work, and occasionally go on random group rides with a local Cincinnati scooter club.
I have LOTS of Hobbies and Interests and my wife shares many of them: I like to watch Anime, both popular and rare subtitled stuff. I collect vinyl records. I play tabletop wargames like Warhammer 40K. I build models and paint miniatures. I like putting costumes together, I currently have a Baroque era lords costume, a full dress kilt costume, a 16th century Catholic priest costume, a monk/wizard costume, a post apocalyptic warrior costume... and I've got way too many steampunk costumes and hats. OMG I have too many hats. I also like creating videos, and I have several youtube channels. I'm a fairly good artist.
I am intellectual, goofy, and interesting
