I know how everyone feels about bathroom selfies but how can I take mine down? Tiger T, sexy pose, dirty mirror... That's the perfect dating site pic!
I drive an old truck and I have an old motorcycle. I like maintenance, and improving things.
I'm generous, kind, educated, traveled and well read. Mechanical, technical, analytical and handy. Politically I'm a lefty as a white male in Texas. I believe in choice, education, and equality.
Kissing. Perfecting the kissing skills. I'm an excellent kisser.
Wait, that's what I think about me...
Probably my eyes. Tengo brillante bonito ojos azules.
A colleague of mine, a gay Mexican fellow, told me that. It was very sweet. I did not kiss him though.
Classics: Hemingway, Bellow, Tolstoy, Faulkner and more. Contemporaries: Richard Ford, Eugenides, Tom Robbins, Vonnegut, McMurtry, Roth.
Pulp: Rice, King, Grisham and my childhood reading, Louis L'amour.
Recently Cormac McCarthy, James Elroy, Nabokov.
"Moby Dick" and "The Man of La Mancha" are on my nightstand.
I usually read the Pulitzer for fiction.
This list has a glaring lack of female writers. I love Harper Lee, Flannery O'Connor, Alice Munro, and many more.
All the regular stuff. I go to the theater for Scorsese, the Coppolas , Wes Anderson, the Coens, you get the picture(show). Paul Thomas Anderson.
There are classics I can't turn off if I come across them when flipping channels.
Lots of old school stuff, punk, Motown, Texas music, and stuff on the radio. I think Jack White is a genius. The National, The Flaming Lips, Lyle Lovett, Stevie Wonder, Aretha, LL, the Beasties, Pixies/Breeders, The Clash, The Temptations, Bob Wills and his Texas Playboys, Raul Malo/The Mavericks, so many talented people, so little space.
I studied cooking and cooked professionally in the 90's and now casually for my friends and family all the time. I can do fancy but it's been a while since I've made a Bearnaise. I make chocolate mousse. I will cook for anyone. I like most anything fresh and not or lightly processed. Thai, Vietnamese and Indian food, and vegetables and fish. Mexican food and BBQ. I strive for a tasty, healthy, sustainable diet.
Mc Donalds, Wal-Mart, Starbucks, Bud Light, chicken, and traffic.
That was much easier that what I can do without. (I had my first sausage McMuffin in over a year about a month ago, spent $3 in Wal-Mart in the last 9 years because I was super desperate, think Starbucks tastes burnt, will only drink free Bud Light if its the only thing left and I really want a beer, poultry grosses me out, and I just hate traffic)
Things I do or use every day that I wouldn't want to change:
I drink french pressed shade grown organic fair trade locally roasted bicycle delivered coffee. (That's not true, no bicycle delivery available where I live that I know of.)
KUT, NPR and the BBC.
That's all I can think of.
Wait, clean socks and underwear...
How many is that? Do you count the socks and underwear separate? I'm pretty sure the coffee and the press go together. How about the radio stuff? A dilemma.
I love my 70 Chevy C10.
Peace in the Middle East.
Value on all sorts of levels.
How the internet is changing the world.
Coal v. oil v. natural gas v. nuclear v. renewables
How efficient is recycling?
I've always wanted to write a book and learn another language and I wonder why I have done neither.
I've become a little obsessed with open education. Linear algebra, calculus and statistics, logic, law, writing, philosophy. It's free from the best and brightest with the click of a mouse. How cool is that?
I talk dirty to my shower. I call it Lucy, and I'll get in there half asleep in the morning and I'll be "Oh, Lucy, that's hot! Yeah, right there, you know what I like... Don't stop, that feels so good"
I thought Thomas was a Reagan appointee until a date who read this let me know he was the first Bush's. I'm not as smart as I think!
You would like a man you don't know but might want to know to buy you a drink. (I'd buy you more than one. I'll let you buy your own if you'd rather. Heck, you can buy me one if you want.)
You like smart handsome interesting guys.
You can hang with a guy who tries to buy everything used. Mostly because there is plenty of stuff in the world. Getting really great stuff cheap is punk rock.
You want to make out.
