Formal Friday…Hello!


Hi. Nice to meet you. Come on in and have a seat, won’t you? Sorry about the sunflower seed-shell mess; I eat them when I’m watching a baseball game, which is almost daily when my team is playing. I’m a Seattle Mariners fan, just in case I haven’t mentioned it before!


So…what do you want to know? It’s hard for me to talk about myself unless someone asks, and even when they do, I don’t want to talk about myself too much – I’d rather know about you, which makes me seem like a nosy chatterbox, to some. I guess I come across as an extrovert for that reason as well, but I’m really more of a solitary hermit. I can only take people the same way they tolerate me: in very small doses. If I feel accepted by someone then I think that I can “be myself” – but only on their terms, which seems a tad unfair. If you expect me to be a certain way, then you will always be disappointed…because I can only be myself; always have been, and always will be! The best way I can describe myself is a walking contradiction and an enigmatic pariah.

Let’s see…astrologically, I’m an Aries with a Leo ascendant and Moon in Virgo, born in the Year of the Metal Dog. Astronomy, geology, biology, physiology, and psychology are also subjects of interest. Music, reading, and writing have been life-long passions. Games of any type are fun: arcade or computer; strategy or role-play; pool, billiards, or darts. Crosswords relax me and make my brain happy. I’m not the most politically-correct individual, but I don’t go out of my way to be gratuitously offensive.

I like photography and being outdoors, looking for seashells on the beach and watching birds glide in the wind. I like riding motorcycles, going on long road-trips, and seeing different places. I like to laugh at funny, silly, or stupid things: self-deprecating humour is tops!

Speaking of comedy, I watched Jon Stewart’s final ‘Daily Show’ episode, and it was excellent. I’ll miss him as a host, obviously – but change happens and people move on, whether you want them to or not. Happy trails, Jon…and welcome, Trevor! I’ll be watching you, LOL

Here’s a great comedy clip with Conan O’Brien, Stephen Colbert, and Jon Stewart ‘brawling.’ The whole build-up of the ‘feud’ was some of the best comedy I’ve ever watched, and this backstage fight is hilarious!

Here’s a screen-shot of the game that I’m currently obsessed with and have been playing for over a year: The Elder Scrolls Online.

I’ll close with two songs: the first reflects my “mild,” gentle side, while the second reflects my “wild,” feral side. Enjoy, and have a great weekend!
