About Me


I do not know how to do this.

relative to CS, I wish to impress on you, so you do not waste your time or mine, and without sounding too terrible...

* I don't host guys.
* the sooner you get in touch with me, the better.
* because I do have a small space I will not have more than one guest.
* again, I don't host guys. I have in the past as an experiment but I did not like it. guys who contact me will get an automatic refusal. do not waste my time and yours.

I have a form letter that I send out guys and more than one person. honestly, I hate to use it.

I have a form letter that I send out to people who do that. honestly, I hate to send it.

however, I accept pretty much every CS request I get if they do not fall under the above categories.

menfolk: hit on me and I will give you a negative report on CS.

well, I sound awful and misanthropic, don't I?


parasitic infections cause misery and death. check daily for the telltale signs of infestation.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I will rescue people on the Emergency list now and then and I often respond positively to direct requests.

please note, again, that I have a small place, so I rarely will have more than one person over or have anyone over for more than a couple of nights. (I will make exceptions for people I know and like but if I already know you... well, you would not have contacted me via CS.)


increasingly good. actually, after ten years of doing this, I think I may have figured out the elusive CS formula and have relentless good and positive CS experiences to the point where I know it has changed my life, just over the last month or so (so, August 2014.)


apart from that I have a home business of converting pets into cyborgs. I do it a bit under the radar because technically you need a license. If you need to, say, install rocket launchers on your chihuahua or put bionic legs on your boa constrictor, though, you could do worse than contacting me.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Pyramid Lake in Utah wins my vote as the most physically beautiful spot on this Earth that I have seen. a certain neighborhood in Chicago wins my vote as the scariest. and Amsterdam has the best airport. Thailand has the friendliest people.
