I'm also a bike rider, a home cook, and a great kisser. I sing karaoke to unwind, borrow way too many books from the library, and make terrariums. I've climbed mountains, built furniture, and have been unsuccessfully mugged 6 times.
Sweeping generalizations: beer over wine, beaches over mountains, Trek over Wars, trains over cars, and breakfast over dinner.
About the cat, he's not mine. We just collaborate sometimes.
Someone, some brilliant workaholic, some genius of their craft (Shonda Rimes, I think) said that if you want to make something great you can't be afraid to be boring. What they meant was don't be afraid NOT to go out and party and travel or whatever. You decide you're going to create and that's going to be your adventure.
So...I'm not a hermit. And I get out of town now and then like everyone else in this city. But I'm not loaded and I don't have a safety net. I have a day job and a dream in progress. If you're one of those people who want to see the world and can, or are making it work somehow, that's great. I might go with you. Most likely, I'll be home with a back rub and whiskey for you. I'll want to hear all about it.
