“You came in that thing? You’re braver than I thought!”

If you’ve made your way here from OKCupid, spectacular. Welcome to my life. Stick around a while.

On the other hand, if you’re one of the people who usually looks at this site, and you’re currently horrified by the idea of me pointing a dating site profile at my “professional” site, I have one question: are you new here? I do stuff like this all through the picture. Depending on who you talk to, I’m brave, crazy, stupid or a heady brew of the three.

So, anyway, that’s that.

My only real memory of my uncle Russ…

…is that he was really serious about a man’s need to wear a belt. In his universe, I think belts held the fabric of reality together. I don’t go near a belt without thinking of my uncle Russ.

True Story

Once upon a time, when I was a youngster, I had a pair of jeans with holes in the knees (I’ve had a bunch of those), and I referred to them proudly as my “Joey Ramone pants” in front of my mother.

“Oh, don’t make fun of him! Maybe his family’s poor and they can’t afford to buy him new jeans!”, my mom replied.

Been here a week.

Place feels mostly solid.

Any word from the peanut gallery on sections/features/information it might need still?
