A good friend once thanked me for always being 'unapologetically myself'....I can do candor, can you?
I categorize most easily as a misanthrope cloaked in stoned content. I don't mind people, just the imbecile things they do and say sometimes (alot of the time). With that being said, I also love peoplewatching despite my cultivated aversion. The World is my Mystery Science Theater....oyster.

And apparently inappropriately using French if said usage involves a pun, or a Simpsons reference. I'm a sucker for both.
Reading street signs, and Reddit, and body language and imperceptible and glaring life coincidence. Reading anything, really. I wouldn't be where i am today without books or divergent mental stimulus. Collecting feathers and rocks and sights and sounds and wandering. Finding people to care about and share with.

I'm also an avid watcher of nature specials. Even the dumbed down ones they play for kids on Saturday mornings. David Attenbourough is THE MAN.

I love donuts. You can ask my tattoo. But fair warning -- my adjacent tattoo might tell you to bite it's shiny, metal ass :D
hundreds of dogs own my heart.
