Life is a funny thing. One moment, you figure you've got a pretty solid idea as to what your life is going to look like for the next 60 years. The color and the shape are fairly solid, you think: the rest is just details. And then you take a step forward and discover it was all an illusion--a pitfall hidden beneath an expensive rug, if you will--and then it's a long, long fall before you find out just how far the hole really goes.
And then you do it again. Because life is a funny thing, and callback jokes are damn fine comedy.
Which is okay, if you're willing to laugh at yourself.
Fortunately, I like laughing at myself--it's good TV. I also like driving fast, even if I wear a seatbelt. I like drinking cheap beer and expensive scotch. I like falling asleep while spooning and being woken up for early-morning sex. I like finding things in common with strangers I meet at bars and parties. I like getting lost in the desert. I like learning ridiculous new things, like painting figurines, or making my own cologne, or infusing alcohol, or shaving with a straight razor. I like raucously partying and quietly pondering on my own in the small hours of the morning.
Ultimately, I like gulping down life as fast as I can for as long as I can. I'd like to meet people who are like me.
Which means I'm pretty damn busy playing with my life.
Who knows? I'm me, not people.
I'm also told that I smell nice. You may need to find out for yourself, though. You know. To be sure. For Science.

I'll eat most any sort of ethnic food, although I have a hard time with octopus sashimi. It disagrees with my stomach, even if it is tasty.
Do interesting people really have typical Friday nights? I am dubious.
Here's something not so much private as just... odd. I have spent the night sleeping under a log in the forest on more than one occasion.
Truth be told, I AM fun, so give it a shot. I only bite if you ask me to :).
