When I wake up in the morning I lay in bed for at least 20 minutes before my feet touch the floor - excellent thinking time. I'm a pretty good cook. Not a great cook, but I used to be paid to be a cook, so I like to think I'm alright. I throw dinner parties. I would probably be a good addition to your trivia team, though that says much more about my upbringing than my current personality.
I'm super lucky in a morbid sort of way - I've survived a house fire, a sinking boat, a bunch of car accidents (none my fault), a rather large electrical explosion, two huge floods, a hurricane, and countless late nights on the town - so depending on your point of view I'm either pretty lucky or almost out of luck.
I'm just sort of your average liberal white guy. And I vote.
Also, trying to decide what to do with my life -and, yes, I realize I'm 31 - I'm kinda deliberate like that in regards to the big-picture things.
Rushmore was and still is the overly tragic and hilarious re-telling of what I thought my teenage years were like, plus it's just perfect cinema, in my opinion.
I tried making a homemade tandoor for my backyard, but my small test oven caught on fire, I know, I know. So I kinda, sorta scrapped the project for the time being. Himal Chuli is my go-to comfort food of choice lately, Lao Laan Xang is a close second.
Music-wise, I'm kind of all over the place. I guess I've really been into Cat Stevens this past winter, though that's giving way to the more upbeat sounds of Sam Cooke, Ann Peebles, Otis Redding and, somehow, the Fugees et al. The Talking Heads and some old Ween and Beastie Boys are in the mix as well. I'm sure that will change by the time you read this.
Almost finished with "Skinny Dip," by Carl Hiaasen. Pretty, pretty, pretty good.
Why the ads on this page are asking me to participate in a survey regarding my preference for different brands of margarine? Is this not Wisconsin?
I have ten neices and nephews, and most of them think I'm the cool uncle - don't tell my siblings.
I may or may not have Willie Nelson's private phone number in my contacts.
If you have plenty of embarrassing stories to tell, and you're willing to eventually share them.
If you own a copy of, "Places We Save."
If you have a good sense of humor.
