This is Who I Am

The Thinking Viking is..thinking


Ed: update/re-write 11/19/2018

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 1999. Dad was a chemist (he was the Norwegian)   –   Mom?  Schoolteacher to  “gifted and talented” elementary school students.  I’m happily married to a beautiful woman with two adult step kids, I work in …software? Sysadmin / secuity etc etc.  – some people call me an Engineer, 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). …also getting old with a motorcycle injury – a wreck that “should” have killed me -finally catching up to me…

and here’s where things change I’m looking at 42…wait 43…44… 46, 47.. hell now 48 in 2019  yep.  

old post below
* 45 soon! yes, looking at 45  with my eyes wide open.   Recently.. wow. married. Recently married.  Now a step father to two not small kids, a teen and a college student. Working on that. So, this follows my recent …OK not so recent.  Been over a year now… relocation back to the front range of the Rocky Mountains from a long  (15 year) sojourn in the San Francisco Bay Area .  *

I tinker with everything, fix computers, bikes, cars, cameras, motorcycles, phones, befriend animals, take pictures, and frankly, I cook my own food most of the time.   (I also cook for now, long story….
Re-connected with some old friends I had thought I had lost.. and lost an old friend. RIP  Ken Riley. :deep breath:  I am loving being back in the mountain air, I simplified, complicated and improved my life in ways I never expected but that I am truly loving..

I’m an American man who loves women, but I don’t give a rat’s ass which gender you happen to love or identify yourself as, or what color you are, or how old you are or how fat you are or how purple your hair is, whatever.  Reserving the right to judge on religious choices.  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.
