About:This is the place where I say "I am that I am"
I am a white male, brown hair, hazel eyes....the rest is subject to change without notice, although, Meyers-Briggs says I am ISFP, just for what that is worth.
I am a MAJOR Star Trek fan. There is nothing (and I mean NOTHING) that I can't tie to Trek in some way or another. It is nearly a spiritual path.
I am Unitarian Universalist, with a Wiccan flavoring. I take my faith very seriously. Do not try to convert me to whatever you may believe, and I will not mock you. Fair?
I am also big on social justice issues. I strongly support my gay brothers and sisters in their quest for equal rights and the right to marry their love. I decry the message that "society" has been sending to little girls, that they have to look like Barbie, and that little boys have to grow up to "Be a Man". We are destroying our children's psyche with this crap. Don't tell me a girl is "hot", tell me how smart she is and what she is accomplishing in her life, and don't tell me a young man is a manly man and a stud, tell me how he treats those around him, especially the ones weaker than he. This is the true test of manhood.
While I guess I have to identify as Democrat, I am really "Non-Stupidian" and waste in government irritates me. War pisses me off. Sorry, but that is me. I think it is idiotic to travel to foreign lands to meet interesting people and then kill them. At the same time, I am for a strong defensive military. I am full of contradictions. I am pro-choice. I am pro-death penalty, but only when there is CLEAR and convincing evidence.
I see the Ford Mustang as proof that this is a God/Natural Order to the Universe/Force, etc and that said Deity likes to go fast.
I am a Severe Storm Spotter for the National Weather Service. (Can we say "Supercell"?) I love weather, especially severe weather.
I am a computer geek. I play a few video games like Call of Duty and HALO.
While I no longer own firearms, I used to shoot competitively and can still split hairs with the things. (potential suitors for my daughters make note of this, it will save us both time). I also have swords, so...
I am a bibliophile and I love to read. I will read almost anything from tampon boxes in the bathroom to War and Peace.
I have been told I am funny and I have been led to believe that I have a wicked sense of humor. This may be true. I try not to take things too seriously and I like to tease and play. Good-natured sarcasm is a way of life. In fact, I live by The Sarcastic's Creed :)
I am honest though and can not stand someone to lie to me or even worse, for someone to assume I am lying to them when I am not. Also, it irritates me no end to have someone "bear false witness" (aka spread bullshit) about me, or those for whom I care. So either believe me or frak off and leave me alone.
Oh and I am incurably nostalgic....especially for the 70's and 80's. Yes..I do realize that is totally pathetic, but that's my story and I am sticking to it.
