to televise the revolution and make my fortune selling pirated DVD copies at Osh Bazaar...
Too many ideas, too little time! Okay, so I'm mildly insane, but quite becoming, or so I'm told :-D
Live and let live. Going postal when life throws you a curveball won't improve the situation any, but it will make you an unpleasant person to be around and grow old before your time, I say. So, please, don't sweat the small stuff; then you'll be too dehydrated to function much later on =)
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
lots of ways.
Managed the Hotel Rachel in Bishkek back in the day, hosting about 30-odd weary, itchy-footed travelers who were the light of my life and by and large the coolest folks I've ever met. Keep on keepin' on, y'all!
Music, Movies, and Books
What do you like to watch, read, and listen to?Music: I know it's a cliche to say "I like a little bit of everything," but I've got my Pandora account to verify my claimBooks: um, I'm sortof a sucker for all things Stephen King, Kurt Vonnegut and Jon Krakauer...trying to expand my horizons when not overwhelmed with textbook readings...if you leave a tattered old paperback at my house, I pretty much guarantee I'll read it :)Watch: goddamn you, Netflix!
