My self-summary
So, anyone want to go to Everest Base Camp? Not even joking folks- all I need is an excuse. I'll even buy the butter tea when we get there!

While you decide, please allow me to introduce myself. First and foremost, I'd have to be described as... subtle. Reserved. Full-bodied with lingering notes of apricot- no, wait, that's bourbon. Still, I don't talk a whole lot more than bourbon, at least not right away. Fear not! When I do talk, I tend to channel my inner George Carlin- or is George Costanza? It's definitely one of the two.

Anyway, as a zen layperson I would be remiss if I didn't explain myself through stream of consciousness, so here goes (deep inhale):

I'm just as happy sitting at home watching Cosmos reruns as I am driving to the airport for a spur-of-the-moment trip to Reykjavik. I once flew to Australia and back just to say I'd been there. I'd rather spend money on experiences than things. I firmly believe that Firefly should never have been cancelled. I draw on occasion, and used to want to be an animator for Disney. I'm still enamored by theme parks. Also zoos. I love the National Park System, and finally bought a GPS watch to try new hikes. Seattle is my spirit place. My favorite toy is a semi-inflatable kayak. I keep a telescope in my living room as decor, and own a charcoal grill that I've never used. I've been to 6 continents, and am eyeing the 7th. I've been to a dozen cruise ports but have never been on a cruise. My globe does not contain alcohol, but I'm working on it. I'm currently reading the biographies of both Steve Jobs and Anthony Bourdain. I love mountain biking, and have been pilot in command of an aircraft for exactly 4.5 hours. My favorite car is the Jeep Wrangler, but not the new model. I'm a total sucker for a dog in a bandana, but see cats as basically house raccoons. I love EPCOT, and recently applied at NASA to be an astronaut.

So, how about Everest? I'm serious! Hell, I'll even settle for Machu Picchu if your Nepalese is a little rusty. Have your people call my people- mirror site on the match!
What I’m doing with my life
Screaming at Atlanta traffic. Realizing that I am Atlanta traffic. Contemplating resulting existential crisis...

Dodging the question so as not to appear conceited ;)

I'm the last one to actually say anything, but when I do it's hilarious
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
How about the most recent? I last read 'Into the Wild', saw Arrival, watched Archer, listened to a James Horner compilation, and ate at Qdoba...
The six things I could never do without
Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens,
bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens,
brown paper packages tied up with strings...

(I've been told that's too esoteric, so I put some *real* answers below)

-The National Park System
-My Subaru
-My Passport
-My personal heroes- Carl Sagan/Anthony Bourdain/Alton Brown
-Dogs
-Scotch, I guess?
I spend a lot of time thinking about

I still occasionally watch cartoons
