My self-summary
I am loathe to describe myself. But okay. I am most generally a quiet man, except when circumstances require me to be loud. I am tolerant, more-or-less, and I work very hard on accepting people for whomever they claim to be.
What I’m doing with my life
I have a work interest in technology. I am a hardware/software engineer for computers. I've been poor. I've been rich. Poor is more entertaining. Rich is easier. I suppose that I will continue being an engineer...leaving books unwritten, paintings unpainted, adventures unadventured...until I grab the bullshit by the horns, and ride off into the sunset.
I’m really good at
Tonight, filling out essays. Usually, people. During work, and at home, I can often figure out what people need, want, and ask for. And, generally, give it to them.
The first things people usually notice about me
I am "thick". I have a thick, and tall, body. Always have. When people start explaining themselves, they usually explain themselves to me. When people want something, they ask it of me. Despite my best efforts, I am never ignored.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: the Dorsai Saga, by Gordon Dickson.
Movies: Them, The Day the Earth Stood Still, 1950's SF.
Shows: Any Broadway musical.
Music: Sinatra, Queen, Styx.
Food: Sushi, Steak, Tex-Mex, Steak, and Steak...or breakfast, I love breakfast, morning, noon, or night.
The six things I could never do without
Four friends, a good dog, and a good knife.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I almost had a thought there.....
On a typical Friday night I am
Waiting for Monday.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am afraid. I can face bullets to protect the people whom I love. I can stare down a crowd, drink bad whiskey, chew a cigar...but everyone whom I love dies, or leaves...that makes me afraid.
You should message me if
You have a bright spark. I need bright sparks.
