I don't know what that says about me. Or what this says:
Raised in the midwest. Spent the 90s (the grunge years) in Seattle. The rest in LA. I love where I live and always have. No matter where that's been.
I don't understand people who don't help bag their own groceries at Trader Joe's.
I'm happily present and presently happy.
I've been all around the U.S. and to Europe a couple times. Although I've recently returned from Thailand, I've decided to stay as relaxed as I was on my last day there.
And contrary to what my handle is on this site, I do prefer the sun over the rain. C'mon, I lived in Seattle for 10 years, I've had my fill.
Putting things together.
Picking the perfect music for every occasion.
Television: We live in a damn fine era of television entertainment, I must say. Quite often, it's more fulfilling than a movie. I'm by no means a junkie, but I do enjoy the good stuff: Breaking Bad, BSG, The Shield, Dr. Who, MI-5. And Supernatural has always been a guilty pleasure.
Books: The Martian was great. And Fool by Christopher Moore is fantastic. Just finished Neal Stephenson's Seveneves and Cryptonomicon, and now working on The Baroque Cycles series. I still love Catch 22, To Kill a Mockingbird, Power of Now, Blink, and The Gun Seller by Hugh Laurie (yes, the House guy.)
Music: On the favorite list are Elvis Costello (the old stuff), Stone Roses, Social Distortion, Hank Williams Sr., White Stripes, Blind Pilot, Blur, Killers, Strokes, Tom Waits, Velvet Underground....., and lately I just can't get enough of The Great Northern, and the Submarines.
(I am not a fan of rap or hip hop. I gave it a shot. It did not stick.)
Food: All. But I'm no fan of raisins, coconut, or any of the lesser nuts. They know who they are.
4 to 5 "out of breath" moments a week. Keeps the head clear.
The English language.
And both lastly, and firstly, my wonderful dog. I've had her for seven years and up until then, I never knew I needed her. It makes me wonder what else is out there that I cannot do without.
And it's not "a lot of time", but why do women keep saying they're not into guys who "photograph themselves shirtless?" Saying that is like throwing your best douchebag filter out the window.
And by the way, I see "likes" only when the feeling's mutual. So let's like each other, meet up, fall in love, and get off this damn thing.
Out for drinks or a movie with friends.
Home, watching a movie or playing guitar.
Live theatre or music.
I am so outside the box.
I can be kind of nerdy sometimes.
