The one thing I am passionate about...
I'm outraged over belligerant ignorance, people making gross generalizations based on one small fact without acknowledging the existance of a larger perspective. Beyond that, I'm pretty laid back about everything.
I typically spend my leisure time
Being still (life moves faster every day, it is good to pull over and stop once in a while, and just do nothing), reading, TV or movies
The most influential person in my life has been
That they be as open minded as I try to be, that they accept me for who I am with no illusions, and accept my differences without trying to convinc me that I'm wrong.
The first thing people notice about me
My sense of humor, because it is dark and absurd and often enough I am the only one laughing
The last book I read and enjoyed
I really enjoyed The DaVinci Code, but discussing that is a great way to start an argument. Fast Food Nation (NO, not Supersize Me) was really good, nowhere as dry as you might think, and very disturbing. As the title suggests, its about the fast food industry, from soft drink marketing agendas, to potato farming, from cattle ranching and feed lots to slaughter houses, from Ray Kroc to Reaganomics to fast food world domination. I liked it for a lot of reasons, and now I have an informed argument as to why I don?t eat fast food.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- my best friend, because he always told me what I needed to hear, whether I wanted to hear it or not
- My intelligence, so I recognise the mistakes before I make them for the fifth time
- my sense of humor, because life has got to be a joke
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
It's not a good act, I really am fairly intelligent
Friends Describe me as
Articulate, Funny, Intelligent, Quiet
A little more about me
I do not define myself as lazy (I work for a living, and I am good at what I do), but I believe that doing nothing is not necessarily a waste of time. Everyone says you have to make every minute count, and I have found that the minutes not spent engaged in some pursuit count just as much as those that are.
