I'm intrigued where sports and culture intersect. Like The Kentucky Derby in Louisville, Ky., Wimbledon for tennis and London in June, The Tour De France, SEC football in the south. Basketball in Indiana and North Carolina, High school football in Texas, Hockey in Minnesota, North Dakota and Canada.
I love being active in my community and world. I strive to make the world a better place to live for everyone.
I visited Vancouver and went to the Winter Olympics there. Afterwards, I had the Olympic bug and I thought it would be a blast to try curling. There is a curling club in Seattle, turns out curling is actually popular in Seattle and there is no room in any of their leagues.
I'm full of contradictions: the life of the party and shy. Outgoing and quiet. That's just to name a few. To find out more you'll have to read the other sections or message me.
I am tall, thin, and googly eyed
American Graffiti, Caddyshack, Field of Dreams. Comedies are good, so are dramas, documentaries and independent films; that's generally the movies I like to see.
When on the computer I often mind my self listening to Radio Paradise. My favorite internet radio station. They bill themselves as "a blend of many styles and genres of music, carefully selected and mixed by two real human beings." They play modern and classic rock, world music, electronica, even a bit of classical and jazz. You might want to check it out, I think it's pretty cool.
I like eating foods that are grown local and in season. I like to meet those who grew my food and to talk with them. Fresh, organic food is better and healthier. But, I'll go right on and eat frozen burritos, pizza, and corn dogs from the freezer as well. I love Indian food and barbeque. I also like cooking food that goes with a season or holiday. Like jambalaya or red beans and rice for Mardi Gras, corned beef and cabbage for St. Patrick's Day, and German sausage with sauerkraut, red cabbage, and German potato salad for Oktoberfest.
Nelson: I dunno. Guts. Black stuff. About 50 Slim Jims.
I just had to get started with those lines form "The Simpsons". That was the first thing that came to mind when I first read that question. I think about a lot of different stuff. I generally have a dozen browser windows up on my computer because my thought will easily distract me and I have to go and grab the answer for my curiosity somewhere. I'll often go to another room to get something and forget what it was I was looking for by the time I get there. That's how much my thoughts can wander.
I find myself thinking a lot about how to best effectively combat our corporate and consumerism culture. From this, how can we build better connected communities with each other. What's the next step in life I should take. What can I do with my life to best reach these goals. That is a bit of the more serious side of me.
