I'm just as interested in learning about other people as I am in talking about my own interests.
I think there's definitely a place for hedonism and drunken debauchery, but I'm usually more at ease spending time with interesting people and having conversations that I won't forget a day later, perhaps after having smoked funny-smelling cigarettes.
I think it's essential to have a healthy sense of humor about life; people who take things too seriously will probably be offended by my caustic sense of humor.
I'm glad I was able to write this self-summary without resorting to banal statements such as "I like to have fun." And I didn't use the word "quirky" once.
