This is Who I Am
In the interest of full disclosure… I’m only half Norwegian, I hold a Bachelor’s in Biology (pre-med), and an un-credited minor in Philosophy from the University of Colorado, Boulder. Dad was a chemist (he was the Norwegian) – Mom? Schoolteacher to “gifted and talented” elementary school students. I’m very “American” – but you’ll have to read my posts to understand what that means, it is a word that’s been twisted around a lot lately. I’m non violent but not a pacifist, and have broken 3/5″ thick boards with my fist (well, that did kinda hurt). I tend to eat organic foods (but I am an affirmed carnivore, make no mistake). I run, ‘cycle and lift for exercise. I’m looking at 42.. wait..2014… 44! yes, looking at 44.. (recent birthday) with my eyes wide open. I bake bread and pies, fix computers and cars, befriend animals, take pictures, and frankly, I cook my own food most of the time. I have a bird(2014 – now deceased :( ), bunch of good friends, and I miss my cat, Merlin , who I had to leave behind when I moved years ago(now replaced with a 15 pound “tuxedo” cat named “Pedro – mini leopard, not fat). I am a pretty good shot with a handgun, rifle, shotgun and bow, but rarely use these skills. (note: have since purchased archery equipment and gotten very good again) I love fishing, but also rarely do it. I’m a man who loves women, but I don’t give a rat’s ass which gender you happen to love or identify yourself as. Huge sci-fi/fantasy fan but not the type to dress up unless it is Halloween. I drive a mildly hot rod Subaru. I am atheist, but behave as a Christian, a real one.
I am a peaceful warrior.
I am The Thinking Viking.
