Six things I could never do without
i've done without, but:
live music
good lovin'
the open road
new experiences
this paddle ball, this chair, this lamp.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
my jouissance & the elusive objet petit a. the myths of Eros & Psyche, the Fisher King, & Tristan & Iseult. the difference between love & romance.
which two things i can do today from the list of a hundred things i need to do. sleeping less, healthing more, commuting less, learning more, romance, bass grooves, transcending, bdsm, optimizing, the fjords of norway, traveling, romance, green tech, favorite lyrics, old conversations, romance.
On a typical Friday night I am
at a show or a house party or a divebar or reading a book or starting a project or something else.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
i'm just a bit introverted. i don't really have a 'type.' i'm a loner, dottie, a rebel. you don't wanna get mixed up with a guy like me. im open to a lot of...stuff.
You should message me if
you let the good times roll.
you get the same jokes as me.
you get the jokes the same as me.
you'll teach me to dance.
you think jealousy is lame.
you'd wanna see a show.
you're challenging, not confusing.
you're nerdy & dirty.
you, uh.. well, yu know..
The two of us
