Forget quiver matches... where are my binders full of women?
Thanks for visiting. I sort my laundry; I want to adopt a greyhound. I run, and I've been a shoe tester for Runner's World. I completed my first triathlon in August, 2005. I've run a marathon, 2 1/2s, and many other fun races like the Gasparilla 15k in Tampa. I hiked my first 14er (Bierstadt) in August 2009, and Evans in 2010, and have done 2 more since. I cook, but hate to cook for one. I love to travel, and like to hear live music. I returned to the music stage for the first time in about 15 years recently. I do volunteer projects with Volunteers for Outdoor Colorado and the Colorado Fourteeners Initiative, where I learned that the zipper on my tent is not waterproof. Who knew there was a separate sealant for that?? But I have a new tent now.
I am intrigueable, adventurous, and resilient
Occasionally, I decide I have artistic talent. Because I do a lot of domestic driving, plus all my time in vehicles in Iceland, I'm currently working on a photography project I'm calling "Landscapes at the Speed of 80" which are all shots I've taken from moving vehicles- mostly at 80mph, or kph in Iceland. Please don't tell the state patrol, since I was probably driving for most of the shots. And we'll see how they turn out- this may be a short lived addition to my profile.
I should also find time to work on my unfinished play and musical. Both are about different topics. Maybe if you're nice, I'll share what each is about with you.
I also belong to 2 art musems here which may or may not have contributed to this idea that I can have artistic abilities too!
I also volunteer a lot- disaster relief, pb&j sandwiches for the homeless, I mentor a kid... you get it, I'm a good guy.
Apparently, my tofu rogan josh is really good, because I didn't get to eat much of it because my co-workers kept asking to try it. Who knew? I'm also perfecting a garam masala bison meatballs in an almond-tomato sauce recipe. It's definitely restaurant quality. I'm currently working on a one-pan salmon dish with spinach, mushrooms and tomatoes. It has a way to go before it's perfected, though.
(b) I don't see a lot of movies. Good TV shows are The Daily Show, NCIS, Scrubs, MI-5 (apparently called Spooks if you live in the country that actually has MI-5), Numb3rs. I've been watching a lot of the ghost hunting shows recently. When you're not in North America or the UK, why would you try to speak to ghosts in English?
(c) Moxy Fruvous, Dan Bern, Eddie from Ohio, David Broza, Mashina, the Gotan Project, Peter Himmelman, Neil Finn, Drew Nelson... the list goes on. And yeah, you probably haven't heard of most of the others, either...
Recently, I've been listening to a lot of Michael Kiwanuka, Alejandro Escovedo, and Chuck Prophet. My favorite current band who I'm also friends with is Bop Skizzum.
(c).1. Favorite guerilla marching band: Boba Fett and the Americans.
Yes, really. They show up at unannounced locations and well, do their thing marching band style with a lead singer on a megaphone dressed as Boba Fett.
(d) Indian, Thai, Ethiopian, Middle Eastern, and anything I've cooked.
Since people don't believe me, here are things I CAN live without because I do live without them. Yes, really. If any of these are crucial to your existence, you can decide how that would impact contacting me: Netflix, an MP3 player, Twitter, texting.
I finally joined FB in 2011. Oh well. Still never used Netflix or any mp3 player.
How come when I donate to celebrity fundraiser telethons, I always have to talk to the random call center person and never a celebrity? How do they choose who deserves to talk to a famous person?
Also, I've been doing a lot of driving for work, and bringing different CDs with me each trip. Since I have such a broad music collection, I've been wondering things like, "Am I the first person to listen to Milton Nascimento while driving between Grand Junction and Montrose, CO?" (probably) "What about Mashina between the Colorado and Utah borders?" (quite possibly) "The soundtrack to Spring Awakening any of the places I've played it in Colorado?" (again probably in some of them) "Blasting the Flobots in Arches National Park?" (I hope not, but also quite probably). That sort of thing. November update: I KNOW I'm the first person to play DeLeon between Delta and Palisade. Probably not the first to play Ozomatili between Palisade and Rifle though.
freerice.com you should play it if you aren't already.
Whether other people also misapply sunscreen and end up with sunburns in really random areas, like just above the hiking-sock line, behind the knees, or the backs of your hands.
And, I don't remember my dreams; or maybe I don't dream, but I sure hope that's not the case.
If you do not understand how to parse the meaning of this question, that's a bit of a red flag for me.
